Last month we went to PAX West to show off our Pre-Alpha build, and the reception was AMAZING!  We also had a PACKED panel at the event, and we did some recap videos of PAX as well as a recording of the panel that you can find below :)

      How do i get the rewards that i paid for. i purchased the Founder - Early Bird Limited! Please assist me with getting my account setup. I keep receiving no response.

    2. Randal V. on

      We did not get duped Edwin. The game is in active development, and moving on nicely as well. Sounds like you bought the game twice, they did have the game for sale for a month after the kickstarter with the same packages. Do not take my word for it though, check on it yourself.

      Looks like we all got duped. Probably won't ever see the release of this. Also, I put an initial pledge, then changed my mind, they still charged me 200$ and another 200$ and didn't give me credit for it.

    4. Matthew R. Kirby on

      I have been under the impression for weeks now that I'd have access to this alpha as a Braver of Worlds Kickstarter Backer. Now reading these comments I believe otherwise and I've very disappointed.

      Maybe I have bad reading comprehension but,
      Invite to Closed Alpha - Phase 1 (Earliest Access to Ashes!) ,
      Sure seems like that says "Earliest Access to Ashes!".

    8. Seth Starnes on

      I don't know what there is to comment about? I went back and re-read the Braver of Worlds tier. Says Access to alpha phase 1. Which is not out yet, so whats the question?

      I would also like to hear a comment on Braver of Worlds access, as I feel that either there is a large misunderstanding or those who bought into this tier were misled. As it states "Earliest Access to Ashes!", which as of right now with the current information, seems to be a total fabrication. This is not really acceptable considering this is no small amount of money, there are a lot of other things that could be done with $500 and I would really appreciate some kind of response in regards to this matter. I really don't mean to come across as rude or anything, but I really would just like some information. Thank you for your time.

      I would like to hear a comment on Braver of Worlds Alpha Zero access as well.

      The pledge reward is a bit misleading because it states access to Alpha One (not zero) but it also states that it’s the earliest access to Ashes which, at the time, was true but now no longer is.

      This is potentially the making good, or not, on the first reward for a very expensive tier.

      Can you please provide some clarification here? I don’t think it’s a good idea to get started off on the wrong foot for the very first reward you’re (potentially) going to driver... or not. Thanks!

      I've been watching this promising project closely and it's not disappointing. Instead, so far the Intrepid team seem to be looking like they might actually pull off their aim of remaking mmorpgs from the perspective of the players, can't say I'm not excited about this

    16. The Exalted and Venerated Timeraider on

      Sweet, looking great so far and great progress.
      Just... redo the combat will ya. A more Guild Wars 2 approach to combat would suit the game better imo

      I'm so excited to watch these updates and see what else you guys bring in. It's wounderfull to know the name of the world that we'll all be getting to know in the future. I hope this project keeps on going well I can't wait for more updates and snippets to come out.

    18. William Barmore

      Bear McCeary is one of the best composers for the visual medium around today. His work on Black Sails (which more people should watch) was second to none and just about every other show he's done the score for has been excellent. I REALLY HOPE you guys can pull off the game you want...

      Please do not be another Everquest Next. Please?!

    19. Michael Willey on

      Anyone know how long the backers program will go on? will it end when Alpha Zero Starts?
      Only thing I ever Backed, AOC!!.

      From a mod: @Kevin Stacy

      Ok, so what I'm seeing here is the term "Access" seems to be the issue. Now, the earliest for the public to access the game at all is indeed Alpha 1 without any NDA. Alpha 0 is in-fact a pre-alpha for the community members that have been here since December and participating. It is extremely limited in content, and will most likely not reflect the Alpha 1 content in any way. According to the FAQ on their Kickstarter, this info is also available there:

    21. Alluring on

      Bravers do not get Alpha 0 access only key winners from weekly drawings and stream raffles and the occasional event prizes.

    22. felix on

      Cant wait :)

    23. Kevin Stacy on

      Awesome! Bravers get this "Alpha-zero" access right? I'm just assuming because the rewards states earliest access to the game.

    24. Brian Lewis

      Holy crap, they actually posted an update on KS for once.
