Hi folks.  The exciting news today is that we're officially heading to Steam.  We'll be running a beta pre-purchase on Steam and providing all Kickstarters access to that when it happens.  We don't have any set timelines yet but we should see the pre-orders in six to eight weeks by my estimation.

Other than that, we've got our noses to the grindstone and things are looking good.  As always, check out our forums at and follow me @zer0sumgames on twitter for up to date info and game discussion.

      When do we get access to the closed beta...( Estimated delivery: Mar 2012)??? No updates in 3 months??? Your tweets seem to show you are further along that your kickstarter updates are showing.

      Should we have gotten our key yet for access?

      Lol... this is funny because most of us who backed this project also backed FTL and games like this. I think he is confused... but we are overdue from delivery date ("estimated" or not) So that might lead to more confusion... or he was just DRUNK! lol. But i will see i look forward to playing. The only game i have that has held its years has been gal civ 2 and thanks because of the updates that has kept it fresh. I hope he comes out with updates over the years! Gal Civ 2 stopped and went stale. :(

      Does anyone know what Ryan is talking about? This isn't FTL, and you don't "buy" steam... Go away Ryan.

      I see steam available for purchase on steam, but I dont see my FTL key yet, what gives? :( It's a bummer that since I helped funded the development I get to wait till whenever someone gets around to sending me a key. :/

      The way it should work is that every backer will get a Steam code that will give them access to the game when it hits Steam. I'm not sure on the details of all of this yet but you obviously won't have to buy any copies if you backed the game.

      Does beta pre-purchase mean that backers will have pay, or will have free access to the beta and subsequent versions?

      We did the normal Steam approval process, thanks to Iceberg Interactive.

      exciting news!

      Was it greenlight or normal steam process?
