      2 years ago we all thought this game was going to be released in a "fully" playable format (not an Alpha or Beta version)
      At this point they are STILL redesigning major functionality of the game. I'm glad they want it to be such an incredible game.... after 2 years of all of us waiting and probably 2-3 more years of development before the kickstarter ever happened - I am convinced that this game will never be in a fully playable (aka sold on Steam and playable) format. I only ordered the base game... did anybody that ordered all the "extra" stuff (book, t-shirt, whatever) ever receive them?
      Just wait another month or 2 and they will be doing another "large update" and that will be followed up by a "large update" and if that isn't enough (and it never is...) I'm sure there will be another "large update".
      Don't hold your breath.... i'm sure if you have been, you are dead by now anyway....

      "Sometime this month" was March ... now the end of April is drawing nearer ... Is it really too much to ask that if you cannot fulfill something you "promised" to let us know in advance and not simply let the day go by?

      Campaign update: We're now 2 years behind schedule.

      "sometime this month" ... end of month soon (TM).

      Anything at all you can currently show us?

      @Jorge Ruiz Garcia
      We are doing a rather large update right now which requires changing most of the server. We are going to have a livestream and dev blog when i'ts complete. It should be sometime this month.

    9. Jorge Ruiz Garcia on March 12

      Taitale. You say this project is not dead, but it really seems dead. I you guys don't tell us anything or wait a lot of time to post just a few improvements, you are not being respectful to everyone that backed this game. I really comprehend all the people here because the rhythm of the updates changed a lot, the quality and time of the responses changed, in a period of times the social networks also were empty of messages. I really hope you guys finish the game, and if you want that the backers support you again, the studio need to change again like when the project begin. If the studio had trouble at least tell us so we can understand the situation.

    10. Weresheep of Sin AKA Stefan on March 7

      Estimated delivery April 2014. Now I know that delays happen, they are normal on KS and even more so in software development. But still I have to say I consider this project one of my duds now (i.e. a failure ... I am not really interested in this game any more).

    11. Creator Taitale Studios on March 2

      Hey everyone,

      I just want to let you know that we are still hard at work on this game. Not everything we do can be shown easily, but development is still proceeding in the Unity client to make this the best possible game it can be. I know it can be slow at times, but this is not a dead project by any means.

      Cheers,
      Aether

      Another failed campaign that I backed.

    13. Darren Hensel on February 22

      I'm starting to get that funny feeling that development is going at a snails...."some day" pace. What I'm seeing seems to be "tweaks" and not the pace that you would think it should be at, at this point. Star Citizen will probably launch before this at this rate. The updates that were dropping into my inbox at nearly spam speed have all but ceased.

      Ignore comment, I missed the update for some reason. My bad everyone.

      Matthew, your promised update was supposed to have already happened. What is going on with this game? I had such high hopes for this and have been following from the begging. I still remain in your side but am slowly becoming discouraged by promises of updates that don't occur as you state.

    16. Jon Holtan on January 21

      when is this game launching?

      As I said before; there will be a dev blog this week.
      Maybe Wednesday or Thursday.

      I wouldn't call it a scam.
      After all there was a "working" alpha to play and test.

      I am also *very* disappointed there is nothing happening and no communication - even if I prefer devs to do their real job and make the game, rather than waste time on community stuff.

      This is a normal kickstarter and, like many other kickstarters, there is a chance it will never succeed. We finance projects without a guarantee to ever see the final product.

      Lets see what 2016 brings...

    19. Michael on January 18

      How long will this scam last? Admit it, you guys promised something to good to be true and now can't deliver.

    20. Michael Caldwell on January 17

      Can I just get my money back? This thing is so far off the mark, it's embarrassing. There is no "thrill" anymore, no updates, nothing functioning.

      Finishing up what we're working on; I think we might put out a dev blog next week.

      Are there any updates? Its been a while since the last and we were promised more updates since the last hiatus.

    24. Jorge Ruiz Garcia on January 7

      Guys, we are in 2016. ¿Can we have any news from what we support? At least for respect?

      Access is currently restricted until Nick feels the build is ready for the public.
      We'll let you know when it is.

    26. Seth Orton on November 13

      Whenever I try opening the game from the infiltrator or the regular way it either says ERROR Authenticity key invalid or expired [normal] Or says Could not find path to /local drive C= _____ [infiltrator]. I have been trying for a few months and still doesn't work. Also, when are the t-shirts going to get shipped?

      -Thanks!

    27. Creator Taitale Studios on October 27, 2015

      He wants more tweaks before it's ready for the public.

      So how long does Nick need to approve the update?

    29. Creator Taitale Studios on October 12, 2015

      Nick hasn't approved the update yet.

      Sorry to post twice, checking the forums my join date is 2012-07-30. So as you can see Im willing to wait. I apologize if I came off as complaining, I was only trying to ask for some sort of update that has substance.

    32. Missing avatar

      Grigory Shokhrin on October 3, 2015

      Can we please have some sort of update with any substance, telling us about a planet and giving us a screenshot is not an update to the progress you have made. Looking at the updates they have been getting more and more thin. I have been following this game since the beginning, you can check that using my email. I am starting to get a little worried about this project, Im starting to feel that maybe my unborn children will be the only ones that will have a shot at playing this completed product. And then what happened to the live streams??? Does the project need more money? Did you guys lose staff? Help us understand why things have slowed down so much.

    33. Lucius H. Moxon on September 28, 2015

      Look, in all honesty I don't care whether the game will be finished or not. I really only backed this project to get Denny Schneidemesser's soundtrack for the game. Whatever happens with the project I hope the soundtrack will actually be released to those who pledged for that tier.

    34. Creator Taitale Studios on September 28, 2015

      @Bernard Ong, I send you a email to get your account up and going as soon as possible.

      @Lokiraces & @Michael, thats just a shiny detail of the upcoming release, we are still very much in development. We are actually getting a massive amount of work done on new UI's, visuals, sound design, smoother and more responsive movement, ability to block inoming fire with large ship hulls and extra targeting features that makes combat much easier to mange among other things.

      Please have a little more patience with us, we are doing our best to get a great new build to the community as soon as we are ready.

    35. Michael on September 28, 2015

      They said two months ago in the forums that they should be done in two months. Well ummm still nothing they lied about this game, they're new motto is "due to legal reasons we can not update you guys with what we are doing" sadly we all got suckered into a game that looked to good to be true.

      Is this game out yet?

    37. lokiracer on September 8, 2015

      You're a year behind schedule and your update to us is a photo of a planet? Another campaign I wasted money on.

    38. Creator Taitale Studios on September 7, 2015

      Hey guys!

      We are currently hard at work, but we feel like the update still needs a little more time before being released.

      For now, here is a preview of a new magma planet. It is not very obvious on the screenshot, but planets are not static. Planets with atmospheres can actually have (very strong) weather effects such as clouds and storms.

      For example, the new magma planet below has a lot of surface area covered in magma, which will light up the dark side of the planet as it rotates on it's axis, but will also change depending on the angle at which you look at the planet.

    39. Creator Taitale Studios on August 17, 2015

      There will be one after we fix the current bug with ship movement and ensure combat works.

      Due to legal reasons, we can't release any information until the next update is ready.
