Alpha release, KS Backer Access & Gamescom!

Posted by Novaquark (Creator)

Dear Kickstarter Backers,

It’s time for our August monthly update and we have a lot of important news to share with you!   

Alpha Release & Access to all Kickstarter Backers ! 

Let’s begin with the most anticipated news to date:
Alpha 1 is scheduled for release this coming November!  

We’d like to renew our thanks for all of your endless support, generosity, and patience. Access to the game by the end of 2018 was a promise we made during the Kickstarter campaign. Even though the game’s official release is still far away, it was important to us to uphold this promise. As such, we’ve decided to give Alpha access to all our early backers before the end of the year (this includes Bronze and Iron Founders)!  

Access to Alpha 1 phase will be granted in waves (from November to December), with more details to come soon. Please keep in mind that the game will still contain numerous bugs at this stage of development and not all features will be implemented yet. If you are seeking a smoother gaming experience, we advise waiting until Beta. On a final note, the NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) will also be extended beyond Alpha launch.  

Here’s the official announcement by JC Baillie, Founder and CEO of Novaquark:

Roadmap and Additional Funds Raised!

As you know, we rely exclusively on crowdfunding and private investment to achieve our vision, and we have amazing news to share. We recently acquired an additional 3.5 million dollars from our current investors, raising the grand total amount of funding to 11 million!   

Official Server Status Page  

For those among you who already have access to the Pre-Alpha, we have simplified how to check when the test server is live. To make this process easier, players will now see a scheduled list of dates and times for upcoming tests in advance on our dedicated server status page, located here.

Gamescom 2018  

A part of our team will be traveling to Germany next week to attend Gamescom 2018! Due to the logistics and tight scheduling, we will be only located in the business area this year. However, we plan to organize a MeetUp on the evening of Thursday August 23rd, outside of the convention center in Cologne. If you’re attending Gamescom, please come by and say hello to us! We’d love to meet you! 

The MeetUp will take place here.

You can find more information about the event right here.  

Novaquark is Still Recruiting!  

We are always seeking new talent to join our team! As sometimes a short video is better than a thousand words, we’ve decided to present our company and our project through this compilation of testimonials from our team members :)   

That’s all for now!  
See you in Dual Universe! :) 

 Best Regards,
The Novaquark Team

      Thank you! You've managed to continually under-promise, and over-deliver. Giving all your early backers Alpha access, even though they didn't pledge for it, is a tremendous show of appreciation and trust to your fans and backers.

      I'm seriously itching to start creating, and look forward to some Lua madness.

      Keep up the awesome, and keep on over-delivering.
