We would very much appreciate your participation and we'll share our results with you once we've had time to collect and analyse them.

Keep in mind that it's always best for us to communicate with you using the forums, this is where we collect your comments and feedbacks and can best direct your requests, so add the page to your bookmarks if not done yet :)

      Where can we ask for a refund?

      The ideas presented here are almost as bad as the "new" iteration of The Mandate. Why not ask them to make a space themed Tetris clone

      I rather you throw the 2d space combat sim and work on the other aspects of the original version. Hell a glorious text based RPG simulator would be better than the very average shit you are showing in the video. You clearly cannot improve on say the recently released Gothic 40k Armada

      @Dave, Shadowrunner
      This game devs tricked its own kickstaters backers by doing 180 turn on a new game that we the backers never asked for.

      Its a shame i will never have my 200 back.

    5. Dave, Shadowrunner on April 11

      I backed this way back when hoping for an RPG (or adventure game with RPG elements anyway) in a sci-fi / space setting. Clearly this project was mismanaged badly and the developers bit off more than they could chew. But it is what it is.

      Honestly at this point I'd say nix the combat entirely and try to release a game that focuses on the other aspects. I'd rather have an adventure game / visual novel game in space than a crappy 2D space combat simulator.

      Here is the survey link, for anyone who can't access it via the site.

      The only update I want to see is where to apply for my refund.

    8. Octopus_Pancake on April 11

      I'd ask for a refund, but of course you won't so all I'm going to say is I hope your company crashes burns and you NEVER, EVER step into the realm of the game industry again >:(.

      I've backed over 80 projects. It is rude to ask me to sign up for and keep track of community sites/social media for all this stuff. If you can't be bothered to inform me here, then I can't be bothered to pay attention to you.

      I am so looking forward to this game. Most promising space game in years!

    11. Scaenicus on April 11

      Although I agree with my backer-colleagues I would like your team to work on the game more than working community management. So forum it is:

    12. Rand Chua TL on April 11

      An update that ask us backers to communicate with you guys on the forum?
      Really you guys got read our comments and communication w us?

      No confidence after six years of silence. Please no Combat in 2D. THIS GAME is no longer looking like the game we backed and supported anymore.

      How do I get my money back? This is crazy.

      Most likely what they meant to say was: "We cannot read every comment on Kickstarter". They are more active on the forums than that they are on Kickstarter.

      Wait, the project isn't dead?!

    17. Wayne Davis on April 11

      This project should die with dignity. But it's way past the time for that to happen.

      Campaign update: 2 years behind schedule.

      Keep in mind that THIS here is the place where you collected our money - so a certain amount of communication here certainly is in order.

    21. Sgt. Killstreak on April 11

      Seems like it's fixed now

    22. Sgt. Killstreak on April 11

      Yeah same problem. I stopped watching the forums a while ago because of all the negativity on it; but when you guys fix the poll I'd be more than happy to add my imput

      You'll have to hire us all, or open that survey up a bit.

    24. Roman Kuvaldin on April 11

      Same issue: "You need permission".

    25. Michael Caldwell on April 11

      Can't access the link in the forums; says I need "permission".

    26. Rob on April 11

      I click on the link and get, "You need permission. This form can only be viewed by users in the owner's organisation." So, I would love to comment... but can't.
