Perihelion Interactive's space opera The Mandate has achieved Kickstarter success with 16,408 backers pledging $701,010. That's accompanied by around $15,000 from Paypal donations.
Not only is The Mandate well on its way financially but the community also managed to hit the Starbase Boarding Operations stretch goal. Visit planets and starbases now.
It's a fantastic result for the studio and fans looking forward to their own Star Trek/Battlestar Galactica style space opera combining RPG and RTS.
