What happened to this ?
Saying the game will never be "finished" is a pretty terrible thing to say, and quite misleading. That makes it sound like the whole thing was a scam; raise money, put out a shell of a game, then claim it will never be "finished" because you have too many ideas.
Instead, just say the game will be "officially" released, with lots of neat updates planned. Sounds much better that way.
April was access to the game.
Novus Aeterno will never be finished as long as we continue to have ideas for updates.
What exactly were you planning to deliver in April 2014? Access to the Forum? When you guys came to Kickstarter you said you need funds to polish and test an already existing game.
As i pretty fast realised in 2014 that there wouldn't be a release anytime soon i forgot about the game for about a year but there is still nothing remotely close to an finished product you can show today. The Game is in really early Alpha right now and you need at least another year to have something close to a finished project (provided the funds are not running out).
Please don't insult the intelligence of your Backers by putting out statements like the last one ("We never stated Novus Aeterno would be finished")
We said it would be available to everyone within a few months; although it took a bit longer, it is, and has been for quite a while, available to everyone.
If you have issues logging in, let me know.
We never started Novus Aeterno would be finished,
Being a mmo, as long as we have more creativity it will never be finished.
We currently have 10 years worth of updates planned.
I am also really disappointed since "Taitale" Studios boldly announced that the game would be finished within a few months (that was in the beginning of 2014). Sad state of the Game and poor communication from it's Developers.
We had a several hardware failures which delayed the next major update but I've been told it should be ready within the next 2 months.
is this game still progressing?
All backers have had access for a long time.
If you need help binding access to your account the following can guide you:
I only check this once every 1-3 weeks.

What we're currently working on we can't talk about for legal reasons until after the next version is ready.
Hey, just wondering how I will know when I have access to the game. I didn't make an account in your forums until just a little bit ago and am worried I may have missed out. I also didn't see much game progress talk in the forums after march and the last patch was 0.9 in February. Does this mean that the game should be out soon and there has been one last big push, or has something gone wrong?
Do you not have access to the game?
Well... I still want to see this game come into fruition. I'm HIGHLY disappointed that we were all given an estimated release time frame of April 2014... that was back in January of 2014. So at this point we are looking at 16 months of design time. How in the world was a 3 month completion time frame turned into (what looks to be) a multiple year time frame??? I've backed other kickstarters that were producing items and yes, some of them have been way off. Usually due to a factory in china getting it wrong and massive production delays. A software company has everything it needs in house.... and in this case 1/4 of a million dollars.... I still cannot understand how Taitale Studios could have EVER finished this game by April 2014. I honestly feel LIED to. Once again, I really DO want to see this game become a reality that is playable as promised..... I'm just crazy disappointed at this point.
Will this ever be on steam?
The Kickstarter pledges are basically donations / investments into a work-in-progress project, and as such you have all the risks that come with it, and are unable to provide refunds. We are currently most certainly still in development however, with some big changes coming up!
Am I able to get a refund too?
If you have special characters in your username try changing it to one without.
i cant log in to my account it keep giving a wrong password or user name even i am sure its correct
Is it possible for ask for a refund? I have tried looking for places to post this without much visibility but it was either here or the forums. I backed the project a bit more than a year ago. I have avoided claiming my Steam Key.
we have been trying to help you get in game, like we said in the PM. We need more information like email or login name to help out. If you send us those, we should be able to get you ingame in no-time. Servers have been up without issue for a pretty long time, without any resets.
When you have PM'd us that information, we can continue!
This project is clearly a scam.
Supposedly backers are able to login, which I am not, despite numerous requests for help I always get the message the servers are down.
Also I have seen no evidence of any progress made in the last year in the 'updates' here on KS. Sure there are plenty of 'exciting' plans and claims they are making progress, but proof of said progress?
Therefore I can only conclude this project was a big money grab...
I have sent an email to you Arc.
Hi I've waited a long, long time for this. Could I please have a refund of my backing?
There is currently no ETA on when the soundtrack will be available.
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.
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 :)
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.
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?
This post has specific details:
You can play right now.
Head on over to taitale.com and redeem your Steam key.
When will my pledge ship? I was supposed to receive it in April.
CJ: scroll down and read the comments, or double-check the updates. They specifically address steam keys.
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!
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.
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.
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
The updates will now be done by a different person.
The UI will be redone at a later point.
For the record:
If I have to read instructions just to understand how to interface with the menu...there might be a problem.
No steam access yet, if I understand the latest update. But then again, I find the updates in general rather confusing. (Shrug)
Yes. We are waiting for our dev blog poster to come on.
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!)
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.
anyway to get my 75 bucks back? It's been like 2 years
Last week before the non Infiltrator access. HURRAYYYYYY. (at least i hope so).
$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.
You should have an Infiltrator access. That's the access to the alpha. Steam keys will come later.
So people pledging $20+ have Steam keys? I pledged $75 and do not have a key.
