Preorders of Automation have resumed

You can now preorder automation!


There are 2 versions, the Naturally Aspirated Version and the Forced Induction version. For all of those who supported us on RocketHub, you will also get the additional items within the Forced Induction edition. We decided to make all of the RocketHub ranks exclusive to those who gave their support early on.


As we try to be as open about our plans and development as possible because we believe in being honest to our community is the moral thing to do, here is target:


Our lofty goal is to get 4000-5000 pre orders. This will allow us to quit our jobs completely and work full time on automation. Which will provide a big boost to our productivity and sanity.


Of course we will finish the game either way, just without those pre orders it will take longer.

Re: Preorders of Automation have resumed

Nice plan! Hopefully you guys will be getting tons! It's well worth it. :)
Out of curiousity, is your goal for 4000-5000 total pre orders, or more pre orders in addition to what was already made?

Either really, we only got like 400 before, so somewhere around 4000 - 5400 would be nice :)

Re: Preorders of Automation have resumed

I wish you guys the best of luck... I donated as much as I could & lucky for you I was getting a few extra $$ at the time you started up the RocketHub preorder. I have also told virtually everybody I know and have had a few very interested people, I know some of them will buy when there is something they can play with.

Ordered! :)

Edit: So, am I the first 'Turbocharged' member? 8-) Shame I didn't find the game early enough to be a supporter.

Re: Preorders of Automation have resumed

Would be an idea if possible to pass on the message about pre-ordering to people you know might be interested.
You could also employ some social advertising e.g. facebook groups etc?

Re: Preorders of Automation have resumed

For us who have pre-ordered Automation while it was on RocketHub. We get everything on the "Forced Induction edition", aswell as our own rank? I'm just making sure that I understand. L:

Re: Preorders of Automation have resumed

YES! Finally I could pre-order the game. Been waiting for this for a while. Great.

I do think you should charge more for the game, it's kind of cheap (Especially in Norwegian money (NOK)). I'm seriously looking forward to the beta.

Btw, you should contact gamer.no (the biggest gamer community here in Norway) and get an article on their site. They love to write about games like this. The email is tips@gamer.no. I'm sure that will get you some PR and pre-orders.

You should try to get more PR...

Re: Preorders of Automation have resumed

we will start the PR push next week.

I tested the pre ordering system thoroughly, I just wanted to make sure that it works and hasn't gone terribly wrong somewhere.
