I find that 15 dollars for early access cheap, even for early access. Is it intentional every tier gets early access?
That is the early bird special for the $20 tier. And I think the game is going to be released into EA because I remember reading somewhere that if you give $20 you get the game with the general public.

Difference between 120 and 200 dollar tier? I see two extra keys and an mk IV badge but that there is more for 80 dollars right?

The extra keys and the badge is the only difference I see. I could have sworn I put in another difference but apparently not and now I can't think of what would be good to put in there.

Dinosaur Model: Deinonychus, Wolf Of The Early Cretaceous...

Aw man, now I want that badly.  But it's way too expensive for me, and closed anyhow...

Yeah. Hence why I shoved $5 at the guy because it was so cool.

4. I renamed a lot of the mark tiers since now we have more of these gradations, and the topmost levels are no longer mark levels at all, but instead are alien race names.  Spire are the top two, and then Zenith below that for now.  Seems fitting, and better than just keeping the mark levels going up.

Err I had everything set up perfectly for mark levels, and then you go and change it. :P ('Twas a joke, and I've fixed it, we just need icons for the Spire and Zenith backers)

Wait, shouldn't "MkV Backer" read as "Core Backer"?  >D

...Well yes, probably. I went ahead and changed it in this document, but I don't have edit rights to the actual document, so Chris will need to update that.

You might want to change it back actually. I'm just being a little troll. Page 78, key terminology changes in the design document says that they will be referring to all core designs as Mk V now. ;)

I should probably actually read that giant thing. I haven't read it since it was like a quarter of the current size.

On the note of Mark V vs Core, I'm not sure which is easier. If case doesn't matter, then [redacted] becomes much easier. Otherwise everyone is getting training in [redacted].

So is there any plans on when the kickstarter will start? Also roughly how long will this be in early access? Because I have seen early access games that have been in early access for quite a while and it could kind of stink to have to wait a year after backing before you get the game with the 15 and 20 dollar tiers.
