      Apparently I never got an account email and only just realised I could be trying this out after forcing a password reset T_T ... Dont know how I've managed to miss all the email updates.

    2. Creator Bare Mettle Entertainment 3 days ago

      We've recently done a very big update to the prelude and with the help of our alpha tier backers we've been hunting down and fixing every bug and making various improvements. The game is working great now and already has a lot to offer, we're just about ready to go beta and lift the NDA, this will be accompanied by an update of course. A full relase to all backers is close, at the moment we're working on a release trailer and adding more content.

      We apologise again for the lack of recent updates, it's just been a very hands-on stage in development and we're doing everything we can to get something solid in your hands. There has been a very real and in depth interaction with alpha and beta backers on our forums. We are very present there and we take everyone seriously, if you want to get involved don't hesitate, interact with us! Our forums aren't just for insiders.

      Since development has gone nearly a year beyond what was expected and the prelude isn't even out, is there going to be enough money left to finish the game?

    5. Creator Johan L on February 15

      The developers are still selling $60 "early" access passes to an Alpha of a prelude title.

      This is more than two years after the funding phase was supposed to have ended, about nine months since regular backers were originally supposed to have been granted access to the full game, and about six months after the most recent estimation of the release date of the prelude title.

      There has been no communication with Kickstarter backers about what went wrong. Information about the present state of the project is available only to people who bought in for at least $30, and protected by an NDA.

      There has been no public commitment to any kind of release schedule.

      My attempt to contact the devs through Kickstarter late last year has not yet yielded a response.

      The worst part is that, despite the present state of affairs, I still can't help but feel hope for the project. Here's to hoping for some updates soon, and that the game may eventually be released in some form.

    6. Creator GAMEHORDER on February 14

      UPDATE! NOW!

    7. Creator terry (Eye Toldyoosso) on February 13

      a update is well over due

    8. Creator Ellusionist on February 10

      Checking up on this project. Glad to hear there is progress but I would love to see a full update soon. Transparency is vital to keep people happy.

    9. Creator Gambler on February 1

      Great to hear, looking forward to it :)

    10. Creator Bare Mettle Entertainment on January 28

      Sorry about the lack of updates. Since releasing the Exanima alpha we've been working on the last major improvements and features, there have also been a few changes in priorities based on feedback. Our recent updates have been targeted at people who have had some experience with the game. The game is in a much more complete state now and we're eager to get it out to the rest of you, also so that we can have more open and meaningful communication.

    11. Creator Tony Birch on January 26

      The game is still being worked on and soon the beta version of Exanima will be released for testing. I have insider, alpha and beta access so I can confirm that improvements and progress are definitely being made. Once Exanima is officially released then more updates will also follow. They are just getting things into a state they feel will accurately represent the game before doing any more videos, which should also be soon.

      The devs did take a short and well deserved break for the holidays but now all the devs are back and hard at work on the game.

    12. Creator James Pico on January 25

      The game is not dead. They are still hard at work and have made some good progress. Patience, gentlemen, patience.

    13. Creator Joruto on January 25

      I've tried to ask for a refund, but they wrote they don't offer refunds at this time. In a few months it will be 1 year late from the estimated delivery date and as it stands now, I would surprised if they would release the game this year. I also miss the communication, Warhorse studio constantly tells it's supporters what they're doing. The last video from Bare Mettle was uploaded 14 months ago. Maybe they're more active on the insider forums, but I think only a minority of their backers receive news there. I lost all hope in this project.

    14. Creator Jen the Viking on January 18

      I just think they've been posting more to their forum than here.
      You can email them at contact(at)baremettle(dot)com. They seem fairly quick to respond.

    15. Creator Scott Barratt on January 15

      Dead game is dead

    16. Creator Nasan Hardcastle on January 10

      I'm excited to hear what new things you've been working on. I'd love to see some new screens.

      -even better, how about a video this time?!

      Please keep us in the loop!

    17. Creator madGamer on January 6

      any news? the game is dead?

    18. Creator Donald M Pollack on January 5

      a update is needed
      i feel we will never see this ,,,ever

    21. Creator Jan Pospisil on December 22

      The website is down (has been for at least a day). I hope it's nothing serious.

    22. Creator Jeremie Lariviere on December 22

      I hope you guys are having a great Christmas season; I'm looking forward to further progress news, Thanks!

    23. Creator Jacob Trewe on December 1

      Any chance us sub-alpha folks could get an update on progress? The screens from last month look really good, but some more info on the changes from original concept to what's happening nowadays would be super.

    24. Creator Jonathan St-Yves on November 4

      You guys do not disappoint. I wish there would be more updates here (not an insider), but the game seems to be headed in an even better direction then what we could expect during the fundraiser. Keep up the good work.

    25. Creator Tony Birch on October 25

      Anyone who has alpha access should check the out the prelude alpha that was recently released. It's a hell of a lot of fun :)

    26. Creator Donald M Pollack on September 30

      Sounds good, the majority of us do not have access to the insider forum so news has been pretty sparse.

    27. Creator MaxPuster on September 16

      Well, still looking forward to this one...

    28. Creator Bare Mettle Entertainment on September 16

      Sorry that we've been a bit quiet here. We have been posting frequent informal updates on our insider forum, mostly we've been very busy with development. We're getting very close to an alpha release of the prelude. We're definitely prioritising quality over releasing things sooner, people are expecting quality from us and we don't want to dissapoint. The prelude is shaping up great and you'll all get a chance to play it before long. We want to focus on getting this first release out but we'll do a proper update here when we launch it.

    29. Creator GAMEHORDER on September 15

      Bout time for an update

    30. Creator Nathan on September 11

      Who doesn't check back on a community that pledged £160k to them?

    31. Creator BdB on September 6

      Imho i better wait than get a stinker where so many "AAA" publishers serve us with .
      Yes its not fun to wait but i wait so when i play the game it will be the best it can be.

      They don't often check back here , be sure to post on the forums if you want to know more or ask a question or contact them.

    32. Creator Phil on September 2

      any updates?

    33. Creator Emil Gustafsson on August 30, 2014

      @Nathan, Once its out. Its not even in open beta yet. hang on comrade.

    34. Creator Nathan on August 25, 2014

      Guys?

    35. Creator Nathan on August 14, 2014

      I pledged £10, when will I get to play?

    36. Creator Ioan Chirita on July 30, 2014

      i'm oficially tired of waiting for the game... :( but i still love you guys

    37. Creator Bare Mettle Entertainment on July 27, 2014

      Our copy of the sent password reset e-mail looks fine, is it possible you're having trouble viewing it correctly?

      If you're still having trouble then please e-mail us directly (contact(at)baremettle.com) and we'll try to figure it out.

    38. Creator Jamie on July 26, 2014

      Went to do a password reset and received a blank email .. not sure what else to do now.

    39. Creator Bare Mettle Entertainment on July 14, 2014

      Because of all the misconceptions floating around about the game we're a bit wary of releasing a video of the combat beta. People are used to trailers and don't tend to take the time to get informed. We will lift the NDA with the first prelude alpha release though which should be soon!

      You can still upgrade your pledge via our Paypal contributions system http://www.baremettle.com/sg/contributions/ but not for long, we're going to close the contribution system with the full release of the prelude.

      By the way there's a wallpaper you might enjoy available for download if you login to your account on our webpage http://www.baremettle.com/sg/login/ . It's the first proper 2D art we've released. Rather good, if I may say so myself :).

    40. Creator Blair on July 14, 2014

      So I saw the update. I am still extremely excited about the game and wished that I had pledged more.

      I know that you guys are busy, but I would love to see some gameplay footage of the beta. Though we did not pledge for the level to play, it would be good to be able to see more of what is being discussed in the updates, not just a description.

    41. Creator GAMEHORDER on June 21, 2014

      just played combat demo for about 10 min. Got to the 3rd battle. Pretty cool. It has a very cool feel to it, but still seems to need a certain level of control improvement. There is def. a learning curve.

    42. Creator Ioan Chirita on June 16, 2014

      i was told there will be an update... :|

    43. Creator terry (Eye Toldyoosso) on June 12, 2014

      release date please ?
      this year ?
      10 days for a update it must be a delay ..thats my guess

    44. Creator Jacob Trewe on June 10, 2014

      Updating on the forums is all well and good, but having a kickstarter update helps the folks that aren't looking for all the tiny details. Especially when projects are running long, it's good to get an update every month or two just to remind backers that things are still progressing.

    45. Creator Bare Mettle Entertainment on June 2, 2014

      Hello, there's an update coming with all the information you need. Don't worry, we're working hard and things are going very well. In the meantime if you want you can find more information on our forums where we post frequently.

    46. Creator Kevin Barfield on May 28, 2014

      Any updates on Beta or prelude? I think you mentioned end of May as the timeframe the prelude.

    47. Creator madGamer on May 13, 2014

      Any news?

    48. Creator Javier on May 10, 2014
