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.
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...
How long will this scam last? Admit it, you guys promised something to good to be true and now can't deliver.
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.
There will be an update after we finish what we are working on right now.
Are there any updates? Its been a while since the last and we were promised more updates since the last hiatus.
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.
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?
He wants more tweaks before it's ready for the public.
So how long does Nick need to approve the update?
Nick hasn't approved the update yet.
What's the hold up?
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.
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.
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.
@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.
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?
You're a year behind schedule and your update to us is a photo of a planet? Another campaign I wasted money on.
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.
There will be one after we fix the current bug with ship movement and ensure combat works.
when are you going to have another backer update?
@Andrey Krasnov All backers have had access since December. If you need help redeeming your game key please private message AetherBlade in the forums.
Much regret in backing this title
So, you guys still working on this game ? Any ETA on when can we start playing it ?
Yea we'r all still waiting too.. no "update" no game as it advertised "just around the corner"..
No, we are all still here.
ANNNNNDD we all got suckered into a kickstarter sham.
Due to legal reasons, we can't release any information until the next update is ready.
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.
Use the "Click here for help" in the bottom right of every page on our websites if you need additional help.
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!
