Strike Suit Zero, the frantic space combat game from Born Ready Games, has reached more than half its Kickstarter funding target of $100,000 in just four days.

$53,259 has been pledged so far and 25 days remain, suggesting the game will reach and beat its $100,000 target.

"Absolutely incredible to see so many space combat fans in support of Strike Suit Zero," reads an update on the Kickstarter page. "Over the weekend we managed to hit $50,000 - meaning we're now over halfway towards our target. Again, a huge thank you to everybody who has pledged so far; it really means a lot to us.

"Like many studios embarking on a Kickstarter campaign, we weren't sure how the community would react to our project. Having seen all your excitement and support over the past few days, we feel it's the right time to announce our first stretch goal, especially since it's a feature that's been requested so much in the comments :)"

As a result of the positive response for the game, Born Ready has introduced a $130,000 stretch goal, which will open up the in-house game editor to players. This will make is possible to create your own missions - your own campaign - and share them with the community.

Further additions are planned, with details on the next stretch goal promised shortly.
