  3. NEW $85,000 STRETCH GOAL!
    Combat Music by Michael Bross!

    We've blasted past our 75k stretch goal, so now it's time to announce our 85k goal! Michael Bross, Audio Director and Lead Composer for Firefall, will compose the combat music for the game and the playable mockup!


    All backers will also receive (at final game), the Tiki Torch group emote. Throw down a sci-fi Tiki torch and all nearby Omniframes will dance, along with player characters. The Tiki torch will play a popular Em-8ER in-joke (as an option): a classic sea shanty modernized and sung by Grummz himself. For more in-jokes and fun, don't forget to join us on our Discord server: https://discord.gg/A8jsTfU


    You did it! We've reached 75k with Paypal counted. You've unlocked the one and only bike that will ever be made for Em-8ER and ONLY available to backers of this round. If you want this bike, this will be the ONLY time to get it EVER in the game. Just back for $1 (current backers already receive this unlock) and have this epic bike that will be able to hold 2 character player riders (concept still being refined so additional seat will be added).

    You've also funded the invasion mockup: a non playable Unreal exe that shows what an invasion looks like. This will be used to add to our THMPR playable mockup and filmed together for our Kickstarter video.

    Congratulations backers! New backers, pledge now to receive ALL the stretch goals noted here (Max and Kaiju Slayers have some exclusive stretches not available to everyone)

  5. There are less than 72 hours to back Em-8ER in a fantastic campaign that is 300% funded! You get the full playable mockup for backing now, and we are on to our $75,000 stretch goal.

    Our 75k goal unlocks the player motorcycle! The goal will create an Unreal engine mockup of a big invasion battle between Omniframes, Tsi-Hu shapeshifters and Kaiju. The REWARD is the Thunder Bumpin Bike. This bike is unique and will not be offered again. ALL backers who pledge will receive this one of a kind bike if we reach 75k. There are NO bikes in Em-8ER, these will be the only ones ever offered as a thank you to Firefall vets who support the dream. They will be 2-seaters, so you can bring a friend for a ride available no-where else in the game.

    This is our kickstarter video to fund the full-time company. We will use this invasion mockup AND the playable mockup to fund a highly polished video that showcases gameplay, explains gameplay mechanics with animated visuals, and has a highly polished production value.

    Back us now and you will receive all the stretch goals unlocks, including the 60k Wing, the CHROMA Omniframe and THMPR Skins and much more! You can back for as little as $1 to lock in these unique skins that will not be available in any other funding round.

    Fund us now, less than 72 hours left! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/em-8er-mech-vs-kaiju-wargame-m3-milestone/x/14521346#/

  7. There are less than 5 days left of funding for Em-8ER’s 3rd milestone and already we’ve reached over $47,000 and 500 backers! That’s 230%+ of our goal! (counting Paypal)

    BACK NOW! Sunday is the last day of funding! With your help we’ve already raised enough to allow us to create:

    Human Male & Female characters
    Geesuit Pilot Suits
    An Omniframe Gun and modular art pipeline
    Tsi-Hu Shapeshifters in humanoid & beast form
    Basic shooting & combat
    Motion capture animations
    Base concepts
    Concept and Model a Kaiju giant monster

    60k GOAL - Fund the ENTIRE Playable Mockup!

    We are so close to the final 60k needed to create the entire playable mockup. As a stretch goal, we are looking to create the entire THMPR encounter: calling down a THMPR mining mech and defending it from waves of shape-shifting alien attacks and defeat a giant kiaju at the end. This sample encounter from the game will be featured in our upcoming Kickstarter to fund the full-time company to produce Em-8ER!

    To do it, we need your help to spread the word, back the game, and earn the NEW 60k STRETCH GOAL REWARD: Omniframe 60k-Wings!


    Here is a sneak peak of the concept for these unique, collectable wings that will only be unlocked if we reach the 60k goal. Keep in mind that ALL backers will receive these wings if we achieve the goal!


    The wings here are pictured in two size. We will be experimenting to see if the wings can be scaled up in flight, and scaled down for walking/running. At the very least they will be the same size as the standard omniframe wings.

    All Backers Receive These Stretch Goal Rewards!

    Nearly all rewards for stretch goals are unlocked for every backer this milestone (and delivered with final game). If a new backer were to pledge just ONE DOLLAR, they would receive ALL these EXCLUSIVE stretch goals, but ONLY if they back this milestone:

    Decals! “Tiki God Mask” and pin-up “Nose Art” decals for your frame.
    CHROMA Jets! Alter the color and fx of your jump jets!
    Mini Tsi-Hu Beast Pet!
    THMPR CHROMA skin! Customizable glow stripes for your THMPR!
    Founder Emotes! (3 character, 3 omniframe) exclusive!
    CHROMA Omniframe skin! Customize the glows on your Omniframe!
    3D Printer files of the Kaiju Beast!

    These will never be offered again. This milestone is the only time these will be available. So back now to lock them in. You can do so for as little as a dollar on our IndieGoGo page. ANY amount will work.
