I thought it would be nice if we had a condensed easy-reference list of all the Kickstarter updates containing information about Titan City and the game! Below I've included links to all updates containing such information, and they have been categorized by their information type. I hope this will provide some easy access to the little information we currently have about the game. I'll attempt to keep this topic updated with applicable updates as they are released.
DISCLAIMER: As many of the updates disclaim for themselves, any info about the game's lore or mechanics presented in these updates should be taken as goals and/or prospects, not reality. Things are subject to change prior to the release.
