In Ensign-1 you play the role of a space fighter pilot returning from a deep space colonization mission. On arrival back to our own solar system, you find Earth has been colonized by a hostile alien force. It's now up to you, with the help of your mothership, the Ensign-1, to take it back

Ensign-1 allows allows for complete freedom in approaching objectives. You can fight from the safety of your spacecraft, or land and exit to explore space stations and carriers on foot. You can commandeer any spacecraft in the game, no matter how big or how small. Defend an asteroid base, or take the fight to the enemy with a huge mothership, friends manning turrets, it's your choice.

The game also features a multiplayer mode where players can explore a randomly generated galaxy, either fighting co-operatively to clean out enemy fighters, or battling each other for supremacy.

Hey mate, just a quick question: why don't you want to at least consider a KS campaign ? Ask for a small amount, something that would give you the impulse to keep working and improving the game until it gets to be the best. Something like 20k would be enough for you I reckon and that would also allow you to get more art for your game etc.
At least think about it. I just don't see how this could go wrong. Ensign is your baby and you should keep at it until it grows into a hot sexy woman along the lines of Jessica Alba :D :D

You know I guess it really just comes down to having my fill of video game development at work, which I'm just commited to right now. I don't know if I'd want to leave it even for 20k to pursue Ensign-1 further at this time.
So, the timings just not great, with a new job and all. The other hurdle is I wouldn't know what kind of rewards to offer as incentives, things like that are tough without a dedicated artist to design T-shirts and the like.
