GDC 2017 & slight delay for February DevDiary

Dear backers,

Dual Universe will be presented at the GDC 2017 in San Francisco from February 28th to March 3rd. We are happy to announce we have been selected as one of the eight winners for the "Best in Play" Awards! Due to all the preparation related to the GDC (new pre-alpha build), the February DevDiary video will be released at the beginning of March (between March 6 & March 10).


Community MeetUp at GDC

During the Kickstarter we organized an Open Door event to visit our studio. We knew not everyone could come to Paris to see the game in person and  we have been working on additional events in other cities where our travel plans and schedules permit.  We know this is very short notice, but booking a location for a meetup in San Francisco during GDC turned out to more challenging than expected. Fortunately we’ve found a great location in the financial district that was able to accommodate us.  For those who don’t know, GDC is a major industry event with many important companies and industry professionals taking part. While GDC is a closed event, we wanted our meetup to be open to all. That’s why we are hosting it outside of GDC venues and hours. You don’t need any special industry passes or credentials to join us! You’re all invited to come out and  meet our founder JC Baillie and NQ-Nunc, our US partner for community events!

The event is in San Francisco, CA on Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 at 7pm Pacific time. JC Baillie will be giving a live demo of Dual Universe and talking about the progress of the game and answering your questions. For all the details on the event and how to RSVP, please read this forum thread.  Space is very limited, so please respond quickly if you can make it. Also, since we know not everyone will be able to attend we’ll be streaming the demo and a Q&A session with JC via a Facebook Live broadcast! Make sure to follow us on Facebook and stay tuned!

Double Packs: linking secondary accounts to KS pledges

We have already made several updates of our user database to link Kickstarter pledges to Dual Universe accounts made on the Community Portal. However, this was only for main accounts. At the beginning of the week, we updated our user database with the secondary accounts (involving Double Silver, Boosted Emerald, Diamond and Kyrium packs) for which we had the relevant info to link with the Kickstarter pledges. Why this late? We are updating the user database in batches and we waited to have enough accounts with accurate info to update it. However, we are far from having the info for all the accounts: we had accurate info to link secondary accounts for only one third of them as of last Tuesday (Feb, 16). So if you have a secondary account that hasn't been linked to your Kickstarter pledge, please double check that you have completed the following:

1) You have replied to the Kickstarter Survey form we sent in November last year.
2) You have given the appropriate info for your secondary account (the e-mail address used for your secondary account) in the Kickstarter Survey form.
3) You have created the secondary account on our Community Portal here.

If you forgot to do one of those three things, please contact us at support@novaquark.com (if you haven't replied to the Kickstarter Survey even for your main account, please contact us as well).

Make sure to mention the following information while writing to our support team:

  • You Dual Universe nickname(s)

  • The email address(es) linked to your account(s)

  • The email address linked to your Kickstarter account

That's all for now.
Next update in a couple of weeks!

      @Mario Sellitti:
      Still planned for first half of 2017, but we can't give you an exact date yet.

      I think this is really great community and hope to get to see the livestream if I could have had more notice on the event in San Francisco I would have welcomed the chance to meet up. This is an exciting game and really glad to got a chance to back this project. :)

      Can you also make this available on Youtube or somewhere else? That would be nice for those of us who can't attend the live stream / don't use Facebook :) Looking forward to the next dev diary!
