Hidden Path Entertainment Invites You to Join the Defense Grid 2 team on Kickstarter.
AMD and Razer Join Effort to Raise Money for Sequel to the Popular PC Strategy Game
Starting today, we're reaching out directly to you and the other 750,000 Defense Grid fans to help fund the creation of Defense Grid 2, the sequel to the acclaimed PC-based tower defense strategy game through our first-ever Kickstarter campaign. The new game will feature a completely new 20-mission storyline with all new aliens and towers, multiple new game play modes and level types, new conflicts, and enhanced graphics.
The five-week Kickstarter event (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hiddenpath/defense-grid-2) launches at 5:00pm EDT today and ends on August 14th, with the goal of raising $1 million to fund development of the sequel. AMD's Gaming Evolved group and Razer are partners in the game's development, and are contributing to rewards for different pledge levels as well. Hidden Path's new Defense Grid 2 engine will take full advantage of AMD's video card technology and Razer's performance gaming hardware.
We've created a multi-tiered Kickstarter campaign to deliver new Defense Grid content to you as we reach each of several funding levels on our way to fully funding Defense Grid 2. For your pledge there are 18 different reward tiers that you can choose from starting at only $15. AMD is providing a limited number of Radeon HD 6770 and Radeon HD 6870 graphics video cards as pledge rewards. Razer is providing a limited number of Wraith Red and green Naga Hex laser gaming mice with six optimized mechanical thumb buttons. Here is a quick preview of many of the exciting pledge rewards that are still available:
Backers at every level will receive a Steam code for a free copy of the original Defense Grid PC game immediately, even before funding closes. During this event, new content and weekly contests will be added to the original Defense Grid game on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/18500 ). Players also will have a chance to win AMD video cards and Razer mice.
