45$ pledge any news from a beta game. Normal ?

Postby othala » Thu May 01, 2014 3:29 pm

Hi,

I maid a pledge on December 2012 and I receive any news about a beta client or something. The client was planned for Jannuary 2014 and still nothing on my mailbox.

Is someone could tell me what I missed ?

Thanks

you missed the devlogs saying: "the game will be postponed to mid 2014"
(iirc it was also mentioned in the kickstarter updates, most likely around december or january)

the game was pushed back because josh isnt done building it.

the current ETA is "mid 2014", beta coming a bit earlier

Welcome othala!

The December Kickstarter mentions a shift in the timescale to mid 2014 as cornflakes said.

The Kickstarter announcement can be found here (about halfway down) or the forum post here.

"mid 2014, somewhere before release"

because it would devalue the input of the backers that did not back at prototype level and would generate a wrong view of the game.
as it is not even closely the game as it was in the prototype

Since we've gone through the motions of saying "hi there, read FAQ, search forum, have fun, post well," I'm gonna go ahead and lock the thread.
