Can I ask what games inspired you?
I kinda have this feelling of borderlands games because of it's massive gun collection.
Am I right?

Ha there's no getting around that a lot of the gun generation is heavily inspired by borderlands. The rest of the game is more based on fantasy games like the old 2d Zeldas or Final Fantasies, mixed in with a little Rogue Likes.

You mean the story is more based on Zelda and not like combat..right?

Yes yes, just the idea of exploration, not the combat :P, In addition to the terrain generation I'm working on random dungeons with rooms and hallways that's more or less like zeldas and castlevania.

Few more questions:
1.What will the rest of the town have?
Will it have shops other than guns and ammo?
2.Will there be side-quests?
3.Will we be able to leave the town and explore the map?
I mean how can you start searching for those moon pieces?
How do missions get started do we unlock new rockets when you collect moon pieces on the previous rocket?
4.Will there be some skill-trees or magic powers like in Borderlands series?(I hope there is)
5.Is it just me or are there no stretch goals on your kickstarter page and why?

I have a few more buildings already designed and I'm adding more, so far there is a temple were you keep track of your moon pieces, which act as ability boosts, there's an upgrade/mechanic where you can upgrade your guns, And there's a Rec Room that has health and energy vending machines. Yes I'm planning on optional levels as well as a world map. New levels become unlocked by collected moon pieces or as the story progresses. The pieces you collect actually alter your abilities, i.e you can get a moon piece that will let you freeze enemies and boost your health. You are correct, it might hurt my funding :/ but as far as content goes it's more of a matter of time, not money, which is why I don't have any stretch goals listed, when I hit my goal I might add some but I'd hate to leave a feature out just because I didn't make a certain amount :P.

What if there would have been stretch goals what would they have been?
I saw there is only 12 days left..seems not enough time to get backed...We need to post about Moon rift everywhere!!!
I hope you put donate or buy button on moonrift.com when kickstarter finished and passed the goal for people who somehow missed it for unknown reasons!

Well the game is still a work in progress and to be honest the video doesn't really do it justice. Right now, especially with such a small budget I'm not looking for help but thank you:)

I didn't mean for money just seeing if you needed a hand. Nothing major. If you want to talk about it more you can email me at my user name at gmail. Good luck on your KS!
