Is Satellite Reign a sequel to Syndicate Wars?

Satellite Reign is a spiritual successor to the Syndicate games and is being developed by a new team including one of original creators of Syndicate Wars. What distribution platforms will Satellite Reign be released on?

We are targeting Steam and GOG primarily with the possibility of other services as well.

Will Satellite Reign have DRM?

The option of DRM-Free versions of Satellite Reign will be available to all backers.

Will you be releasing on WiiU, Xbox One, PS4 etc?

We aren’t going to rule out the possibility, but at this stage, we’re concentrating on delivering a great experience for PC, Mac and Linux users first and foremost.

Will Satellite Reign have a Multiplayer component?

Multiplayer is a part of our plans, we are really excited about the prospect of cooperative and versus play. However the initial funding goal is tailored to allow us to concentrate on delivering a strong single player experience. Stay tuned and keep an eye on our stretch goals for more information.

Can I pledge to your campaign via PayPal?

We’re in the process of getting a PayPal option up and running as fast as we can. We’ll send out an update when we’re ready to go.

I really want a boxed copy of Satellite Reign!

We’re hearing more and more requests for boxed-copies of the game. Physical rewards are challenging to work into small budgets, but rest assured, we’re currently exploring all avenues to see if we can make this happen.

Why is it in pounds/Why can’t I pay with amazon payments

Unfortunately 5 Lives Studios doesn’t have a US bank account, so we weren’t able to setup a US kickstarter account.

Instead we have used our UK bank account to create a UK kickstarter account.

An unfortunate side effect of this is that all the prices show as pounds (we added approximate us dollar amounts).

And more problematically it seems the kickstarter payment handler wont allow Amazon Payments to UK accounts, and that is why you are asked to enter credit card details.
