There's now barely two days left in the crowdfunding effort, and as is usually the case, the contributions are flooding in at an accelerated pace. The developers, who are promising unlocks such as new features, richer storyline and a more expansive universe as the supporters pass certain funding goals, are stating that they can't produce concept art quickly enough to keep up with the donations at this point.
