Announcing the Theta Commander!
As we start to head into the holiday season, we have an early present for all our backers! As part of our pre-order campaign, we announced the new Theta Commander. As an early backer, you get this unique commander as well! Sweet, huh? Here is an early concept of the Theta Commander.
Next, a warm welcome to Elijah, Kevin and Mike, all who recently joined Uber’s engineering team.
We’ve been quiet on updates, but working hard. Between the big updates, we are still updating as often as possible with smaller bits of information on places like Facebook, Twitter, the forums, and now, Google +. A lot of cool progress and updates have snuck out. Read on for a re-cap.
What’s been going on since last we spoke:
- We had a Planetary Annihilation live stream on twitch.tv last week. You can watch it there or up on our YouTube channel.
- We launched our pre-orders (The Theta Commander, remember?) For all you early backers, you don’t need to do anything here, but if you have friends who missed the early backing, and want a chance to get in on alpha or beta, and get the Theta Commander themselves when the game comes out, this is the way! Find it at http://store.uberent.com! And as always, they can find out more game information at http://www.planetaryannihilation.com
- We’ve done a number of “this week in the forums” posts up on Facebook for folks who don’t hang out on the forums, recapping a number of dev posts and discussions. Nov 17 is here, Nov 10 is here, and there are older ones as well that can be found up there. We try and post these most Saturday’s at 9AM Pacific Time, and future ones will go to both Facebook and Google+.
And an important note for ALL BACKERS - we still have a large number of incomplete finalizations. If you wanted a chance to upgrade your backing level or buy additional keys, you’ll have until the end of the month - the end of December, 2012 that is. After that time, you will not be able to upgrade or add keys at the discounted price again. Especially if you’re at the $100 ($95), $150 or higher reward tiers, it is urgent that you finalize these soon if you want to make sure you start getting items as soon as they’re available. If we don’t have your shipping information, we can’t send it to you! Some of these items will take a number of months to design, manufacture and ship, so we have to start soon.
Thanks all for your support so far, and we’ll try and get one more update out before the holidays, and in the meantime, have a fantastic holiday season, and get your armies ready for Planetary Annihilation next year.
