      I have sent an email to you Arc.

    2. Creator Arc 5 days ago

      Hi I've waited a long, long time for this. Could I please have a refund of my backing?

    3. Creator Taitale Studios on February 4

      There is currently no ETA on when the soundtrack will be available.

    4. Creator Lucius H. Moxon on February 3

      Any news on what's happening with the soundtrack. If I'm honest my main reason for backing was to get my hands on Denny Schneidemesser's incredible soundtrack for the game, and so any updates on when it will actually be available would be appreciated. Thanks.

    5. Creator Michael Caldwell on January 21

      Well in his defense, it's available...but not really playable. For me, the excitement passed way back in April when we were supposed to have access. My interest moved elsewhere. I am content to wait until there is a full release. I tried to play the game twice, but it was such a chore just to access the game (menu interface was atrocious), and once in there was zero direction/instruction. I shouldn't have to "hunt" for what to do; which is why I will wait until the game is more polished. I'm sure it will be great by then :)

      @Taitale Studios
      People are too lazy(or not smart enough) to read or to do a simple search so you should know that there will be always people who won't know anything concerning the thing they want to know about even though the information is easily accessible and that is why there will be always stupid question and bitching.

    7. Creator Taitale Studios on January 19

      It's been open to all backs for a while now.
      We announced it in several updates, forum posts, facebook posts, and twitter tweets.

      If you need specific instructions, you can find them here:

      So since i pledge 35$ like an year ago for a game that still doesn't exist on my pc (it was supposed to be on my pc around april), can i get my money back and go play other existant games or i have to wait my future son that will born in an unpredictable date of my life for give him my non-infiltrator key?

    9. Creator Taitale Studios on December 30

      @lokiracer

      You can play right now.
      Head on over to taitale.com and redeem your Steam key.

    10. Creator lokiracer on December 30

      When will my pledge ship? I was supposed to receive it in April.

    11. Creator Michael Caldwell on December 20

      CJ: scroll down and read the comments, or double-check the updates. They specifically address steam keys.

    12. Creator CJ on December 19

      Sorry if this has been asked before... once we claim the steam key, where is it? Or, have they not been issued yet? Thanks in advance!

    13. Creator Michael Caldwell on December 18

      So, anybody enjoying the alpha/beta yet? Thoughts?

      I logged in but could not accomplish/figure out anything. I'll leave it be for awhile. Just curious if someone has enjoyed it yet.

    14. Creator Taitale Studios on December 13

      Anyone who had a Steam Key in their package currently have access to the game.

      There are no Steam Keys to be given out right now, but you redeem it in your taitale.com account and then you are given immediate access to the game servers.

    15. Creator Jaden Brooks on December 13

      I'm really confused, have non-infiltator gotten keys yet? If so I haven't received a key yet. If not, well I don't know I'm just really confused. :S

    16. Creator Taitale Studios on December 11

      The updates will now be done by a different person.

    17. Creator Taitale Studios on December 11

      We know.

      The UI will be redone at a later point.

    18. Creator Michael Caldwell on December 11

      For the record:

      If I have to read instructions just to understand how to interface with the menu...there might be a problem.

    19. Creator Michael Caldwell on December 11

      No steam access yet, if I understand the latest update. But then again, I find the updates in general rather confusing. (Shrug)

    20. Creator Matthew Ibbotson on December 8

      Yes. We are waiting for our dev blog poster to come on.

    21. Creator TheTard100 on December 8

      So have the steam keys been given out? I feel very out of the loop.

      (Not meant to bring the developers down, you're doing a great job!)

    22. Creator Matthew Ibbotson on December 5

      If you have the $75 tier, then you have had access since Feb 10, 2014. (14 days after the Kickstarter ended)

      Send a mail to AetherBlade or PerfectDeath on the forums and they will sort you out.

      http://forum.novusaeterno.com/

    23. Creator Arc on December 5

      anyway to get my 75 bucks back? It's been like 2 years

    24. Creator Big-IN on December 2

      Last week before the non Infiltrator access. HURRAYYYYYY. (at least i hope so).

    25. Creator Matthew Ibbotson on November 13

      $20+ pledges will be given access to the live server in 3 weeks.
      This is what buying it on Steam will do.
      After it comes out on Steam everyone with a $20+ pledge will receive a key.

    26. Creator Big-IN on November 13

      You should have an Infiltrator access. That's the access to the alpha. Steam keys will come later.

    27. Creator Scott Alex on November 13

      So people pledging $20+ have Steam keys? I pledged $75 and do not have a key.

    28. Creator Matthew Ibbotson on November 7

      3-4 weeks.
      I am Sypheria.

    29. Creator Big-IN on November 7

      According to the post on the forum, people with Steam key will get access to the game before the end of the year. But It will not be on Steam yet. Source: Sypheria on Novus AEterno forum.

    30. Creator Matthew Ibbotson on November 6

      It's 3-4 weeks.

    31. Creator Soren Saggio on November 6

      so I'm hearing anyone that pledged $20 or more via Kickstarter should be getting access within the next 7 weeks (assuming we are talking the Gregorian Calendar, not the Chinese Calendar)

      Not holding my breath....

    32. Creator Matthew Ibbotson on November 2

      KS backers with the Steam keys will be getting access very soon. Not in the soon™ sense either.

      While there is no firm date; it will be before the end of the year.

    33. Creator Soren Saggio on October 30

      still awaiting an ETA - but I'm not holding my breath. But "WOW" is all I can say --
      "WOW" to what looks to be an incredibly impressive game
      "WOW" to what was said to be a 3 month wait to launch
      "WOW" to all the problems, memory leaks, tweaks and adjustments made/fixed since April
      "WOW" to the thousands of backers who sit here awaiting any semblance of a release ETA
      "WOW" to the 6 (almost 7) months we have heard about all the problems and updates, and new add ins that still leave most of us sitting here waiting for news of a release date.
      and lastly "WOW" I as I think the "Largest Strategy game ever" has no release strategy
      step 1 - tell everybody the game is almost done
      step 2 - get their money
      step 3 - work on game with no finishing point ever established
      step 4 - listen to backers whine
      step 5 - occasionally give updates as to "what is going on"
      step 6 - rinse, wash, repeat

    34. Creator Michael Caldwell on October 27

      Well, the end of the year is coming, and still no access for the beta. This goes back to the promised early access, supposedly in April, almost 7 months ago. That's what I get for gaming with KS.

    35. Creator lokiracer on October 27

      What's the release date?

    36. Creator Matthew Ibbotson on October 19

      Nick means the rest of the devs are in the forums. Devs can't post updates here, only the project creator, so the forums are faster for questions.

    37. Creator Michael Caldwell on October 7

      Condolences.

      Also, while it is great that you are updating folks in the forums, i find it important that you update on KS as well; while I wouldn't expect an exhaustive update here, a small one will achieve the desired end of keeping your money-givers abreast of what's up with the project. I am not going to delve into the forums for every single project that I give money too; I would never get any real-life work done.

    38. Creator Taitale Studios on October 6

      @Michael Caldwell:

      Sorry I am away for a week in Athens for some family issues, my grandmother just passed away.

      I have minimum internet here I'll answer everyone's questions once I'm back in the office.

      Also I do recommend people ask questions in out forums as we are all there more often then here.

    39. Creator Michael Caldwell on October 6

      ...still around?

    40. Creator Big-IN on October 4

      September came, September gone. still no new info on no-Infiltrator access. And no way to upgrade the pledge to Infiltrator. :-(

    41. Creator Steven on September 24

      An update on when us non-Infiltrators will get access to the game would be nice.

    42. Creator Seth Orton on August 9, 2014

      why does it say in the pic version of the $150 tier you get four premium account months but in the text it says you only get three?

    43. Creator Michael on July 26, 2014

      I you pledged $25.00 is that the beta access or is that just until the game is more released if it is for more when it is released is there a way to get beta access

    44. Creator Michael Caldwell on July 25, 2014

      I doubt it would be much fun for us at this point. A beta is one thing, but I've no desire to partake in an alpha. There's not much fun to be had. Is what it is I guess.

    45. Creator Mirak on July 24, 2014

      hmm we're at the end of July now. I think it's about time that we backers (whom are not Infiltrator or more) get acess to the game since it's 4 months since the original release date...

    46. Creator Taitale Studios on June 6, 2014

      @Skyler
      Sorry that was a grammatical error on my part, i was referring to something written in the past about something that will happen in the future.

      p.s. I hate English...

    47. Creator Skyler Small on June 5, 2014

      "-the 25$ tiers GOT access WHEN it went live to the public on steam "Early Access" or some other forum of open beta for the public- "

      We did? It's not even on Steam.. I'm confused here. Why use the past tense for future events?

    48. Creator Taitale Studios on May 29, 2014

      We have tried to move all questions comments and communication with the devs to our forums or worst case our Facebook, sorry its to many sights for one person to run around and manage and i forget all the different places people can leave comments xD

      it will definitely be before the end of this year. but as i have said its hard to give a exact date because there is countless factors so instead we try and keep you very up to date on everything we are working on.

      The main issue is not only progress on game development but at what state do we thing its ready to go live. the 25$ tiers got access when it went live to the public on steam "Early Access" or some other forum of open beta for the public and there is 2 factors in that timefraim:
      1. deciding when is "done enough" "Done Enough"
      2. actually reaching that point development wise.

      unfortunately we only really know the first once we actually reach that point.

    49. Creator Soren Saggio on May 29, 2014

      wow... the silence here is deafening.

      Guess I can look forward to playing this game sometime in the next year or 2... since nobody will ever come out and talk about a release timeline.
