Thanks to our 18 contributors for their support! This is a big game with big and new features. We may be almost as far from our minum goal as we started, but our efforts will be to bring our 18 contributors an immersive scifi horror experience. We have released the normal alpha which has taken me almost 4000 hours, but as i said before, Ghostship is designed for the rift. Although this offers more than the small choice we have in 3d survival horror, I wanted ghostship to go above and beyond! If you have Oculus Rift then please donwload the demo of deck 3. If you have contributed, email me for the full Oculus alpha and you will expereinece what I intended. Ghostship is speciallay made for rift and with a pc/mac version with 3 diffferent viewing modes the pc version has not grabbed the attention we hoped and needed. There is still a long way to go but rift owners will see why our game is made for rift! Thanks for your support, we love you and you will have exclusive access all the way. We will have delays as we are far from our minum goal, but it will be worth the wait! Visit the Oculus forums for the Oculus alpha, or email us with same email you contributed with and we will send you the full alpha in the rift next week!
OLD EDIT**We are in the last few minutes, even a miracle wont save Ghostship.
With only 533 views in 60 days this game is another one of those games which was lost in the void. There must be too many scifi free roaming, first person shooter/survival horror games with months of replay value, 5 game modes, multiplayer, 3 view modes and an oculus rift release! which have hidden our project from the worlds view. I have put 4k hours into this project and lack of exposure wont stop me!
Prepare for more on ghostship, but lack of funding will mean delays!
For our contributers I thank you and you have contributed enough so we can get the oculus rift dev kit. We have ghostship up and running and will be releasing an oculus demo shortly. Our contributers will have exclusive access to the oculus rift (full alpha) and the first beta on halloween. Thankyou. We will be changing the final price of Ghostship over the next week and will resume pre-orders at the new price which will be confirmed next week.
Why have we reached 1% of a very, very low budget goal?

What is CDF Ghostship?
Ghostship is a first person or third person shooter & survival horror game with 5 different game modes. The story mode is a huge free roaming game where you explore a huge space craft and look for ways to escape. Onslaught mode offers you a wave based survival type game and challenge mode offers you a variety of diverse and different challenges! Simulation mode and Arcade mode offer even more replay value with lots of simulations and an arcade styled game type.
All contact has been lost with the space station and colony base and your ship has been sent in to investigate and help with any repairs if needed. You play the part of 3 different characters at different points in the Goliath Incident timeline - Beginning, middle and end.
The 3 characters you can play are :
A pilot who returns to the ship after it has arrived at the colony.
An engineer who is stuck in the back of the ship as the ship gets overrun by aliens and zombies.
A marine who was part of the boarding party, presumed KIA you are left behind on the space station and have to get back to the goliath.
Each character is different and has different perks, each of the characters start at a different timeline in the story of the CDF Goliath. As you play through the game you find out what has happened on the ship and the colony. You must escape the ship and then the story-line has a huge twist which you will not be expecting!
EPIC REPLAY VALUE AND VARIETY!
5 Game modes!
Story Mode - A huge free roaming game on a spaceship, orbital station and a colony base!
Arcade Mode - Fun game mode involving lots of moving platforms and enemies, and you will have a grappling hook!
Why does Ghostship need your Help?
There is still much development that is needed we have reached alpha 0.36 with only a couple of hundred pounds funding! We have reached the stage where we need funding for the further development and completion of the game. We want to publish Ghostship ourselves with your help and release it at less than £10, if we are unable to get enough funding to get don`t what we still need to do on the game, then we will will have to look at other publishers which will probably increase the price of the game. The more we get from crowd funding the less we need to seek privatley, help us to help you!
What will the funding will be used for :
Hardware - Computer equipment, for development and testing, Oculus Rift Dev Kit, controllers for set up, digital storage space etc.
Software - We need a variety of software and licenses for the devlopment and release of the game
Key devlopment Tasks - Parts of development we need to contact out such as voice acting, programming, gui, motion capture etc.
Marketing - The more we have for marketing the more we can promote the game and advertise it at gaming events, web & social media.
Reaching the goal
Getting the minimum funding is our goal. The minimum funding is primarily for the final development and licensing which we need in order to release the game to you by the end of the year or early 2014! Compared to most games 25k is a tiny budget for a game of this scope. As we only need a minimal amount for essential voice acting, music, motion capture, equipment and licenses, we are asking for a fraction of the funds that most other games like this need! We are trying to raise as much as we can through IndieGoGo and pre-orders, If we do not manage to reach the goal we will work hard to find alternative ways to raise the funds we need. This will take longer and put devlopment behind shedule but it will not stop us from finishing the game.
