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.

 
"Wow, we ended up passing 700k on Kickstarter + 15k from PayPal. This last day was our best funding during the entire campaign! Starbase boarding operations will definitely happen! Thank you, thank you, thank you from all of us here at Perihelion Interactive!" posted Perihelion on Kickstarter.

"We are extremely happy and very tired now! Stay tuned for more updates on additional design tiers, lore updates, BackerKit etc etc. We will have announcements about how we plan to engage you in the weeks and months to come so we can keep the fantastic and constructive spirit. Thank you again, you guys rock!"

The Mandate is tentatively due Q1 2015 on PC with alpha and beta next year.

Massively excited for this, and so glad the two most fun-sounding stretch goals were met (starbase boarding and ground missions). Can't wait.
