    1. Creator Wai Sing Lee on April 4

      IdeaLcenter, according to your second campaign, you were supposed to have the Alpha ready by Q1 of this year. Judging by the list of items that you are working on, I don't believe that the Alpha will even be ready for a Q2 release.

    2. Creator mikebert on April 4

      Well, hey, thanks for FINALLY releasing an update. The problem that I have is that is that you can't even give us a firm date for an ALPHA version, so when can those of us who pledged for the FULL version (delivery estimate December 2013) expect to receive something?

    3. Creator IdeaLcenter on April 4

      @Charles Gulotta - We've post new update just now.

    4. Creator Charles Gulotta on April 3

      still no update? When can we expect to see something!

    5. Creator IdeaLcenter on March 24

      @mikebert
      We are sorry that our last update is not there yet. We planned to post it earlier, but we want to to finish big part of our game before posting it - and we are very close now.
      If you need to have more frequent info, please visit our forum topic:

      Thanks for the big Friday update. Over one year past your stated release date and still no beta, and very few updates. When are you planning on launching your third Kickstarter?

    7. Creator IdeaLcenter on March 4

      @Vanessa Chalub
      Yes, we want to post update this week. I hope we can do it on Friday.

    8. Creator Vanessa Chalub on February 25

      Hey guys, any news? The last update was long ago!

    9. Creator Anthony Bonome on January 6

      While this is taking a long time, I am ok with it. I'd rather have something good than something fast.

    10. Creator Iwin on January 4

      Estimated delivery: Dec 2013????? or was it suppose to be 2015????

    11. Creator IdeaLcenter on November 12, 2014

      @JdH - yes of course, we will be informing backers from both of our campaign about progress on M.O.R.E. Now there may be few more additional updates related to 2nd Kick campaign, but after them, those updates will be the same.

    12. Creator JdH on November 10, 2014

      I expect you to provide us one time backers with the same text updates if they are relevant to us. I don't want to have to look if you made an update for your second ks that might be interesting to me.

    13. Creator IdeaLcenter on October 28, 2014

      Hello Shawn. In this case, please send us a message with your nickname which you want to have in M.O.R.E. universe by e-mail or private message here. We will add it to our database and you'll be able to reset your password and login into your account.

    14. Creator Shawn Roske on October 28, 2014

      Hi, when I try to reset my password I get the error "nickname field cannot be empty." I want to check if I named my star. I don't think I did.

    15. Creator IdeaLcenter on October 3, 2014

      We've updated our KS2 campaign with new text informations about galaxies and rewards. We don't want to spam our backers e-mail, so we've decided to send you information only about video updates.

      @Eivind. It's huge game, and we want to create good game. Anyway, we are moving forward with progress of our game.

    16. Creator Iwin on October 2, 2014

      More delay, yay

    17. Creator IdeaLcenter on September 30, 2014

      Hello. We invite you to take part in discussion about one of our alien races:
      http://www.morethegame.com/forum/viewtopic.php…

    18. Creator IdeaLcenter on September 25, 2014

      Yes, you can do it, if you are at least $5 backer.

      You should be able to do it after login into your account on: http://www.morethegame.com/customer/account/login/

      If you can't login, and can't reset your password, you probably missed our mail with link to activate your account. In such case, please send us information - by P.M here or to our e-mail: support (at) morethegame.com with your choosen nickname which you will have in M.O.R.E. universe. Please choose wise, as you won't be able to change it later.

      After naming your star system, please check it again in 1-2 weeks, as we are accepting those names or rejecting incorrect. You can check now accepted names in "Stars", and report name which is offensive in your opinion.

      If you want to name more star systems, you can become our supporter in our Kickstarter 2 campaign.

    19. Creator Niels on September 25, 2014

      If I didn't name my star yet, can I still do it?

    20. Creator IdeaLcenter on September 22, 2014

      We are going to release pre-alpha playable version this year. As you can see here: http://morethegame.com/forum/viewtopic.php… we are quite close to it. Then we will progress our path. Don't worry. We will finish M.O.R.E.

    21. Creator Tory Republic on September 22, 2014

      Yes, make a simpler game faster. This is exactly what you need to do. It's the only chance you have of releasing a finished game. Real artists ship.

    22. Creator IdeaLcenter on September 22, 2014

      @Tory. And we are creating this game as you can see. We've 7 more video updates ahead of us. And during this time, we are going straight to pre-alpha/alpha version. When you'll see all, I think that you'll have better knowledge where we are in our progress of finishing our game.

      We have choice, stay with $60k budget and cut some our ideas.. create something like Lords of Pegasus or Endless Space or something.. ot try to really change 4x genre. We decided to go this second path.

      We could make simpler game faster.. but we saw possibility to create trully a game which can be proud of - without any compromieses. So yes, now we are trying to raise our budget a little. Then our plans are to go to Steam Early Access - but we want to have then working Alpha or even Beta prototype.

    23. Creator Tory Republic on September 22, 2014

      Hmm funny there is a faq on this very page that addresses this concern:

      "I'm quite skeptical that a game with this many features and assets can be developed for $50,000 and with a team of only 12 people. Seems like a serious case of underestimating to me.

      Yes, $50,000 will be sufficient to finish our project, because we will invest into it our own money and time, as well the cost of living//working in Poland is slightly smaller than the U.S. or Western Europe."

      This is why I'm annoyed. You promised to create a game on this ridiculusly small sum of money, and I was foolish enough to believe you. What good is the paltry 10000 that the second campaign asks for going do anyways? Look out for M.O.R.E part 3! If you are stuck, just be honest please.

    24. Creator IdeaLcenter on September 22, 2014

      @Joe - we aren't asking you for more money. We only propose you such option if you like our progress.

      For funding games:
      http://kotaku.com/how-much-does-it-cost-to-make-a-big-video-game-1501413649 (milions of $)

      For funding Endless Space (under 1.000.000 Euro ~$1.300.000)
      http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/182470/endless_space_when_triplea_.php

      Our budget:
      Kickstarter - fees - taxes = $60.000 (over 20 times less than endless space, and we are creating far more challenging game!)

      And yes, we are a year for final release, because we want you to give you real MoO2 successor, not some simple bad game - just to fulfill our obligations on time. We are sorry that you don't like our approach.

      Also we are very sorry that you don't like tone of our replies, because we always try to stay polite and we try to explain all to our backers.

      Maybe our further video updates will make you change your mind about our progress.

    25. Creator Joe Fitzgerald on September 22, 2014

      The unapologetic way in which the developers are asking existing backers for more money to keep themselves in a job, with the game not even close to release, is very, very disappointing.

      I am very tolerant of indie developers delaying their release - these things happen with small teams - but the poor tone of the replies and lack of accountability for utterly failing to deliver this game... I'm just embarrassed for them.

      My investment wasn't much but how could they actually believe they deserve MORE of our money, when they got $40k more than they asked for originally and that still isn't enough to fund the game?

    26. Creator JPTS on September 16, 2014

      Other projects have done a 2nd kickstarter and finished the game. I understand other people's concerns, but I don't see the any problems here.

    27. Creator IdeaLcenter on September 16, 2014

      Thank you Jon for your positive comment. We've tried to describe why we are starting this campaign etc. We don't force you to support us again, but some of our first campaign backers already did it. That's great! And we are grateful.

      If you are angry at us for starting this campaign to make M.O.R.E. a better game ( making our game budget larger, will let us to maintain our coworkers hired) you shoud be also angry at us, that we are collecting pre-orders from Jan 2014.

      And no, we will finish M.O.R.E. in a way, that we will be proud of it, and we do anything to achieve this goal. Even if this mean starting Kickstarter 2 campaign and making some of our previous backers angry. (which is sad of course for us)

    28. Creator Jon Olav Abeland on September 16, 2014

      Take your time and get it right. Let people be offended, you are chasing your dream game and it takes time. I will not be disappointed until you say that there will be no game (and that should never happen :)

    29. Creator Tory Republic on September 16, 2014

      Well if the first kickstarter didn't deliver, I'd be a fool to spend money on another.

    30. Creator J. Colin Cox on September 15, 2014

      Agreed with Chris Richeson: "A second Kickstarter for an unfinished first Kickstarter is offensive."

    31. Creator Chris Richeson on September 15, 2014

      A second Kickstarter for an unfinished first Kickstarter is offensive.

    32. Creator Michael Caldwell on September 12, 2014

      Elvind, being a troll will do nothing. If it was possible I'd say you should be banned from KS from ridiculous posts like that.

    34. Creator Wolfgang Lange on August 29, 2014

      As I see they are still in development - right?

    35. Creator PegasusOrgans-Graywalkers VIP on August 12, 2014

      Any news on the new Kickstarter?

    36. Creator IdeaLcenter on July 21, 2014

      @Joe. We didn't have any videos from previous events. There are some interviews but they are in polish and doesn't bring anything new. If we go somewhere abroad, we will make a video for sure.

      We are glad that you like what we've done so far. I think you'll be even a little more happy, when you see video from our current gameplay.

      Yes there will be standard rewards and upgrade/add-ons options. So you will be able to make donation, which will raise your overall pledge.

    37. Creator Joe Cornelius on July 21, 2014

      Its great to see so much wonderful stuff in the works, I know I'll chip in the next KS. I want really good diplomacy options. A whole new system to dealing with things from mundane to serious. A more options in details like these can have a huge impact and make the system seem less ..calculated..
      All in all I'm pumped for this project. They want to embody the game of old into a new hi tech version and I'm 100% with them. Will any donations in the upcoming kick starter supplement the game for already KS backers?

    38. Creator Joe Cornelius on July 21, 2014

      For those who would like to be there but cant have a video of it? :)

    39. Creator IdeaLcenter on March 19, 2014

      @Muttala - I don't understand.. I'll contact you by P.M.

    40. Creator Muttala on March 19, 2014

      IdeaLcenter, we no longer has the all future dlc add on?

    41. Creator IdeaLcenter on March 5, 2014

      In the 1000th comment here, we have the honor to invite all our Backers, at the presentation of the current production version of M.O.R.E. game - which will have place in Cybermachina pub, in Katowice, Poland on 12th March 2014 at 19:00 local time.

    42. Creator IdeaLcenter on February 15, 2014

      Currently we are working at preparing pre-alpha version. We want to release alpha version as soon as possible. But.. the worst thing is to release any version of the game prematurely. We don't want to do this mistake.

      As you mentioned about outside support. We can have it if we want, or need this. There is many private people/companies interested in supporting us, but we want to choose wise and if we are not forced we won't do this. For example we could go to E3 this year, we were very close to go there, but finally we decided to postpone it untill next year for greater good of our project.

    43. Creator Wai Sing Lee on February 14, 2014

      Any word on when the alpha will be out? The last mention was sometime in February of this year.

      And any news on further outside support as was hinted at months ago?

    44. Creator IdeaLcenter on February 10, 2014

      You are now able to raise your supporter level at out website:

    45. Creator Dawn_ on January 28, 2014

      I've never received any email, well i did also completely forgot i had back this game, so no issue there.

    46. Creator Muttala on January 24, 2014

      IdealCenter,
      Just want to support
      Seems like the site still does not allow raising up pledge "website under construction" since I last asked on that back in Aug'13 in below comment . That's ok anyway, hope the base game will complete soon

    47. Creator IdeaLcenter on January 9, 2014
