FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 28, 2014 – Juggernaut Games, an independent games developer, is happy to announce that the company has reached its Kickstarter Campaign goal in just 17 Days! With 13 days left in the campaign, the team and the community are looking forward to achieving additional stretch goals and adding more great content to StarCrawlers.

“StarCrawlers is a dream project for the Juggernaut team - we’re so happy to have the opportunity to continue working to shape it into the amazing game we know it will be.” said Asa Enochs, co-designer. “We feel privileged to have been flooded by such overwhelming support from the Kickstarter community and all of our backers.”
