The eventual success of Andrew Groen’s Kickstarter campaign for Empires of EVE Vol II was never really in doubt. The original was a success, selling more than 15,000 copies, so there was little in the way of surprise when the project funded quickly, making the modest $12,500 goal in just a few hours.
Currently the total pledged has passed the $150K mark.
As the campaign went on, new tiers were added, including an option to get the original and the second volume as one package. The latest update announced that backers would be getting a digital art book titled A History of the Great Memes of EVE Online as part of the deal.
However, the campaign is coming to an end. So if you want to support the project and secure a first run copy of the next chapter in Andrew Groen’s history of EVE Online, the time to act is now.
It will be for sale through Amazon eventually, but to get it soonest, to support the project, and to get the book of EVE Online memes, you have to back the project before it ends.
Go here to pledge now.
Addendum: The campaign is now closed, having exceeded the campaign for the first book by bringing in $169,160 from 2,643 backers.
The first book brought in $95,729, though it had more backers, the number landing at 3,116. I guess we were willing to spend more this time around.
The promised release date for Empires of EVE Vol II is May 2019, so call it August 2019 at least before it is done.
