After a lengthy month, the System Shock remake Kickstarter concludes today beyond its initial funding goal of $900,000. The campaign ended on a $1.3 million stretch goal in which, according to Nightdive Studios, they will add "Additional Locations and Expanded Narrative." Although it was unable to achieve the $1.4 million stretch goal, the campaign was still able to end with exactly $1,350,700 from a total of 21,625 backers. Nightdive Studios' thank you message to those who backed was this:
We've done it! With the help of our thousands of dedicated, passionate, and generous backers we've raised over $1.3 million dollars to bring System Shock back to life!
These last 30 days have been a wild ride but we've enjoyed every moment of it. From reading your comments, answering your questions, and interacting with you on Discord and Twitch it's been an experience we've enjoyed more than anything else. It's clear from the overwhelming outpouring of support that System Shock means so much to so many people and we're extremely honored that you've chosen us - and entrusted us with the monumental task of remaking one of, if not the greatest game of all time.

From everyone here at Nightdive...Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We couldn't have done it without you and look forward to having you join us as we embark on our return voyage to Citadel Station!
Again...from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
