      Hey, I also don't know how to PM and don't have a steam key, the desura link isn't working, unable to load the page.

      Hello Andrew. I'm afraid I don't know how to initiate a PM to someone, and have not received my keys for Eterium. Why was I not notified when it was available?

    6. Andrew Luby Creator on

      If you backed this project and haven't gotten a Steam key for Eterium, please send me a message and I'll send you a key. Thank you.

      Considering Desura has been gone for some time now, to those of us that have had our Eterium install held hostage by all of this, is there a way we can get a direct steam key?

    8. Andrew Luby Creator on

      To retrieve your Steam key you'll need to first retrieve your Desura key which should have been mailed out to you. You can get the Steam key by going to and clicking on the keys link. If you have lost your Desura key and need a copy please send me a private message with your Desura screen name and the email address you registered Desura with.

      @PegasusOrgans i believe you get a desura key, and then from there you can retrieve your steam key.

      BTW, I didn't get my Steam key.

      I've just received my parcel of goodies from Andrew. They arrived in the UK in perfect condition (nice packing job).

      I wanted to thank the Rogue Earth team for a KS which has been well run and perfectly concluded. :D

      We are holding off on ordering the physical goods until 1.0.1 patch (which was released today) is out. We want to put the patched version on the disks we send out. Now that the patch is out I will be working on ordering the rewards that I don't have yet. Also we'll be sending out digital goods soon. I'm going to hold off on the digital posters until I am sure they will look good when printed. It takes about a month or two for orders in the quantity we need to be processed and shipped to us, we'll then get them shipped out to you guys.

    17. PegasusOrgans-AGL 589 on

      Anyone get the physical goods yet?

    18. Christoph Zürcher on

      Completed the game just before, and I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed it. The flight-model is spot on and felt great with my flightstick. I'm looking forward to new project from your team.

    19. Scott on

      Scratch that, another backer told me how to do it, can't wait to play this =)

    20. Scott on

      So I see Eterium is out on steam....And today I get my gift game on Desura, which I don't use and have never heard of, is there a way to get a steam key for this game instead, as I don't really need/want another digital game store service on my PC?

    21. Shayne Joseph on

      same here as well, no email yet!

      Congratulations for getting Greenlit!

      @Styggron: Yes version 2974 is the latest beta version.

    25. Styggron on

      @Dan please excuse the delay in replying I don't often post on this KS. Sorry no I don't know of any left handed gaming mouse. I tend to use the keyboard as decent joysticks are of course all right handed (sigh)

    26. Styggron on

      Latest beta on Desura is 2974 this is the newest yes ? Desura does not seem to say when this file was last uploaded oddly enough.

    27. Dan Johnson on


      being left handed myself, I wonder if you (or anyone else for that matter) know if there is a decent left handed gaming mouse lurking out there somewhere? I've tried looking but have not found one as of yet.

    28. Andrew Luby Creator on

      @Triantafyllos: Unfortunately, we don't have any plans to support multimonitor setups. We are concentrating all our efforts right now on releasing the game.

      Does Eterium support Eyefinity or Nvidia Surround? Thanks

    30. Styggron on

      @Andrew Not a problem. As I said being left handed I usually rebind to the arrow keys when there is a WASD. In this case it would be just roll left and right :-) Thanks again Andrew.

    31. Andrew Luby Creator on

      @Styggron: Sorry about that crash. I don't think I ever tried binding the arrow keys. It crashes for me too, so it should be an easy fix. Thanks.

    32. Styggron on

      Ok I managed to crash it. :-(
      When I went to the keys I tried to rebind roll left and right to the arrow keys (as I am left handed) and I get "unhandled exception has occured in your application. Index was outside the bounds of the array."

      There are a stack of details listed but it wont copy to the clipboard so I can't paste them here sorry.

    33. Ben Bonney on

      How is the beta playing? Kind of wish I had backed more after playing the pre beta demo.... With this and star citizen, I hope the space flight sim genre comes back big.

    34. Styggron on

      Another great one is "The Story of Mojang". That one is also fantastic.

      I bought the 2 disc version and the soundtrack. With the 2 disc version I got free digital download DRM free as well. It's a fantastic doco. I strongly recommend it.

    35. Andrew Luby Creator on

      @Mark: I agree Indie Game is a great insight into indie game development. A watch I recommend for anyone interested in indie game development.

    36. Mark Shaun Rushow on

      I watched Indie Game The Movie last night it is very insiteful into just what it is like for the indie game developers. It covers Super Meat Boy, Braid, and Fez as they are being developed and released.

      I registered on the forums a couple days ago. But those of you in the forums already had that figured out.

      Also registered on forums :)

      Congratulations! Great news!

    43. Rob Wiltbank on

      So, are there support forums setup yet? Having some issues with the demo (and controller) -- I'd love to be able to try what I backed. ;p

    44. Harley on

      Oh, and +1 for eventual Linux support :D (Thought I'd establish a bit of a demand for it)

    45. Harley on

      I'm so glad this project made it, congrats!

      The PC needs more space sims
