If you missed out on the Kickstarter and failed to secure your copy of this up-and-coming game, then never fear: you can now head directly to the Uber Entertainment store and pre-order it for yourself.

The Combat Edition starts at $40 and will net you the game (when it comes out), plus the soundtrack and a pre-order exclusive Theta Commander. If you crank it up to $60, you’ll get beta access as well — and if you’re willing to lay down $90, you can even have alpha access too.

So, is it worth it? There’s no way of knowing yet! And there’s no release date on the final product either, but if you’re willing to lay down the money, you’ll be the first to know. Click here to watch their trailer and find out more about the game.

Have they been giving progress updates on this game? Or at the very least have they shown actual gameplay footage yet?

 

I haven’t seen anything, but I’m not a Kickstarter backer so I don’t have any regular updates — any backers shed some light on this?

 

exe3: Or at the very least have they shown actual gameplay footage yet?

no, and I’m glad.

this game is pretty ambitious in a lot of ways and I don’t want to see any half-baked crap to be perfectly honest. They’ve only been working on it for 3 months or so, I’m in no hurry.

 

diamondd: no, and I’m glad.

Agreed. They can take 5 years for all I care if it turns out to be the RTS game we were all hoping for.

 

I backed it for about $125 I think it was, haven’t received much in the form of updates at all to be honest, whereas I’ve gotten multiple from Starcitizen, Maia and War for the Overworld. Not really worried though they know what they’re doing and like diamondd said, I rather them not showcase half done things to try and convey what the end result will be, I rather just see the end result.

 

Absolutely zero updates, and as the others have said I don’t mind. I laid down a shitload on this from memory. I got to name a planet, yay!

 

If I had backed i’d be wanting updates not the least of which because I love watching how a game (or anything really) develops over time. :) It’s one of the things that has kept me playing LoL what with seeing how they change and improve on things over time and the design process behind what they do.

They have been including pa updates in their regular live steam that’s publicly accessible. Nothing major, they did some desert planet biome generation stuff, sorian speculated about some ai stuff.

edit: Oh how I wish 2 player productions was involved :)

 

^they actually talk about quite a lot in that, and I’ve only watched the most recent one :P

should be right up your alley exe3 if you want to see stuff evolve over time…

diamondd: ^they actually talk about quite a lot in that,

I skipped a lot of stuff, there was a bunch of smnc and competition stuff that wasn’t relevant and the ‘question time’ felt a little pointless. It feels more technical but less open than the dfa updates. In the previous one they also talked about procedural generation of planets and path finding

 

Just saw the Jan 10 one, very interesting. :D

 

it was cool, but I wanted way more details, the full-on geeky version lol.
