It’s our final week here for Alpha Colony and we’ve just crossed the halfway mark. We’re revving up to for new content all this week to help us meet our goal. Beginning with a very exciting announcement!:
Starting today, your dollar goes further! This is really exciting news because it means that we now have a realistic chance of not only succeeding but also reaching several of the stretch goals we had our heart set on. But how is this possible?
We’re proud to announce that our application to the Colorado Film Incentive Program has been accepted! This program matches funds spent on creative content projects based in Colorado, such as film or video games. However, if we don’t reach our Kickstarter goal, we will not be able to spend the minimum requirement to be eligible for these additional funds.
A private backer has also agreed to match our Kickstarter funds in make additional stretch goals possible. However, we need to prove that the game has enough demand first by reaching our Kickstarter minimum funding goal.This means if we can just reach our $50k minimum funding goal, we will now able to deliver all of our stretch goals up to $100k. Including:
We’re really happy about what this means, as this really makes Alpha Colony a more complete game. However, it’s still all or nothing, so if we don’t make our minimum funding goal we won’t get any of our backer’s money, any money from the state of Colorado or any money from our private backer.
Best of all, this matching goes above and beyond our minimum goal and will apply to all future stretch goals as well. Now that your money goes further, it’s more important than ever to like, share and tell your friends and family about our project. Let’s get Alpha Colony funded!
Just a reminder, it’s the last day to qualify to win our Thanksgiving goodie bag giveaway! Tomorrow we’ll announce 3 winners, who’ll receive fun Alpha Colony swag. All you have to do is go to our Alpha Colony Facebook page and like.

The new trading mechanic has the bank bringing up 3 random resource cards for auction every turn. Each player then individually bids on the cards they want similar to a silent auction. The cool thing about this is that there are lots of interesting choices: do I bid all of my cards for the auction item I really want? Or spread my cards out more evenly? Even cooler is that we can offer bonus plots of land or even 'power up' bonuses as cards for auction and players can decide how much they really want each resource and supply and demand variances in each game will keep it fresh and interesting.
