Hello everyone! Today we want to bring some incredible news that will certainly bring a smile to your face. Ok, ok, you’ve already read the title of this update, but you still need the details, right :D?
Upcoming beta phases
While closed beta has been available to roughly 1000 INSOMNIA backers so far, most of you haven’t had the opportunity to test the game yet. We’ve had an influx of emails and messages on Kickstarter for the past few weeks with people asking when they might get a chance to participate in the beta. And now we have an answer for you.
Since INSOMNIA’s development took longer than anyone expected, we feel obliged to give something extra in return for all the support and patience you, our backers, have shown throughout these years.
Long story short - we’ve decided to grant beta access to ALL backers, no matter how much they’ve pledged. We will be distributing additional beta keys starting next week. Here’s an approximate schedule to make the process more clear:
- Phase 2 - keys distributed to backers who pledged to the “Comrade” and “Sergeant” tiers. We will also send the first batch of keys to “Soldier” tier backers.
- Phase 3 - the second batch of “Soldier” tier backers will receive beta keys.
Phase 4 - keys will be sent to everyone who pledged to the “Recruit” and “Uniter” tiers + backers with pledges less than $5 or “no reward” backers will also be covered.
This schedule should allow our team to process the feedback after each phase in a timely manner and potentially release a few updates to keep things interesting.
Let us know what you think!
