Great news everybody!

We've been selected as a "Project We Love" by Kickstarter, which helps the campaign be seen by more people. And we might also get featured on the main spots on Kickstarter, e.g the Games section headline spots. The campaign is also highly rated in the "Trending" section, which is great!

Please spread the good news and share the campaign with your community, friends and on social media! 

Thank you all current pledgers. You're awesome! <3

Rain Steampunk Bundle Reward Item

Rain Steampunk Bundle:

We made a small mistake when entering Reward Items into each Tier, and the Reward Item: "Rain Steampunk Bundle" were missing from some of them. Sadly, we can not edit this in at this point, as it is not allowed by Kickstarter.

 Every tier above Steam Clank (30$) will receive this Reward Item as well, if the Reward Item is missing from that tiers list.

Sorry about that, and thanks to a pledger for giving us a heads up on Twitter. Thanks!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What platforms are you targeting?

  • PC / MAC / Linux
  • Consoles TBA, please check back here later into the campaign as well, since some platforms are currently dependant on stretch goals, like Playstation and XBox. We want to target Nintendo Switch, but need approval from Nintendo first.

 What is the Physical Collector's Edition?

Will I be able to select which platform i get a game copy for?

  • Physical copy; yes. Please see FAQ for which platforms will be available, depending on if we meet stretch goals or not.
  • Digital copy: only available for PC/MAC/LINUX.

What is the minimum specs required to run the game on PC?

  • In short; fairly low end specs, but should have dedicated graphics card. Our intent is to make the game run on consoles as well as PC, which require a well-optimized game.
  • Minimum System requirements as given by Unity Game Engine:

Operating system:

Windows 7 SP1+
macOS 10.12+
Ubuntu 16.04+

CPU: SSE2 instruction set support.

GPU: Graphics card with DX10 (shader model 4.0) capabilities.

DRM-free version of the game?

  • The Digital version from GOG is DRM-free.  You will receive a key for both Steam and GOG when we send out digital versions of the game.

Is a controller required to play the game on PC?

  • No, we want players on PC with mouse and keyboard be happy with the controls as well.

How is the camera view in the game? Topdown, or over the shoulder camera view?

  • In "World To The West", the camera is slightly tilted, fixed topdown perspective view. We want to do similar for Girl Genius, but we also want to experiment a bit with this in the early design period when starting game development, to see if we can do camera slightly differently. Please see "World To The West" trailer to see how this works in action :

Which playable characters will be available in the game?

  • Agatha and her Dingbot minion.
  • Tarvek and Gilgamesh for parts of the game if stretch goal is met

Any multiplayer features planned?

  • No sorry. We want to focus on the singleplayer experience for this title. Would be fun though!
