Use your backer number, found in your conformation email, as a U-boat number and se if it has a history.

Mine is U-502.

Since I didn't get to pledge until late afternoon my backer number is 1887. Searches for U-1887 only return results for Mongolian letter Unicode and diagnostics for faulty oxygen sensors.  :(

Unless I become the father of three sons, I don't think I'll ever find 3 other people to play this with in the area.

The game looks awesome, but it would just remain in its box if I'd buy it.

This ! :-X

i checked the Kickstarter goals and

- 88 deck gun
- day night circle  in the App
- weather effects  in the App
what i asked for at Essen are now in the game and unlocked O0

- and also 20 AA  gun soon-ish (about 500 more backers in 22 days)

- the game now has a pause and save function too,  O0
so a solitaire game might be much more doable now.
let's see how automatising of the different roles is done to reduce the workload of the solo player
the app also runs on a PC ! (where video capture is a no-brainer) so a good AAR (or preview) of soloplay might surface 
 
my visit at the Spiel games fair in Essen 25.10. this year will be veeeery interesting :D 
 if IIRC the game will ready for release (and pickup) at Spiel
