Alpha Information and Game Client Demo

Posted by Planetary Annihilation Inc (Creator)

Hey all -

As you may have already seen, we had a great livestream yesterday! People seemed to love the demonstration, and clearly, loved hearing that we have a window now for Alpha!

Before we get to the video: We expect to start Alpha roll out starting at the end of May. It will be rolled out as fast as we can manage, and if you paid for Alpha access, you will get in as quickly as we can accommodate one of the largest alpha groups we've ever seen! Before emailing us with questions, please check the FAQ and the forums. Hopefully most questions you have are already answered! (We're getting a bit of mail as you can imagine)

And now, the video! Enjoy, and let us know what you think of the game you all have helped make possible!

Thanks so much for your support so far, and we told you 2013 was gonna be awesome!

      Just checked and it seems at the $100 tier I got all 3 Commanders, Alpha, Delta, and Theta. STOKED for this game.

      I know I already posted a comment, but since that, I was thinking... If the early backers wanted to upgrade their tier choices from, say, 40 tier to 90 tier to get in on alpha. We know that that the Uber website has it's own accounts and so does Kickstarter. So why not verify that you were and early backer. Keep your Uber account but while your ALREADY logged in with Uber, login with your Kickstarter account on Uber's web page and gather information from your Kickstarter account and put on your Uber account so it knows that you have backed and can upgrade.

      I really like what I'm seeing so far. Impressive how quickly this is coming together.

      I love you not accepting that you don't need a mini map innovation i love it that's why i backed you.

      Though I now direly regret not paying for beta nor alpha.... :(

    10. Thomas on

      This is so awesome.... HELL YEAH !!

      And after your pre-alpha Demo, youtube suggested some 3VS3 ForgedAlliance replays! Of course !

      :D :D

    11. Luuk Schagen on

      Looks absolutely stellar.... Graphics are already amazing so Please dont change too much for The final game!

      Really looking forward to alpha and beta!

    12. Mark on

      You guys are awesome! XD

    13. Matthew B. Kish on

      This looks really really good. Love the replay system. This is shaping up to be an exceptional game.

    14. Rand Chua TL on

      The Pre alpha graphics looks fantastic. Hope to see the 2nd game play video with battle!
      Waiting to see the new type of mini map?

    15. ThomasN on

      Server side demo recording! This will be huge for clans. If nothing strange is decided now like lockdown all mods in steam workshop or something like that, this RTS is the last one we'll ever need... Until you put out version 2 of course :D

    16. Shawn Dolen on

      Just an FYI: even for pre alpha graphics, I think this game looks fantastic. Really can't wait to see it polished and ready to go.

      This looks great. I'm glad I backed it. One question though, are planets going to have any sort of day-night cycle? I don't expect it to be true darkness and black, but seeing one side darker than the other and the strategic elements it could create would certainly be interesting.

    18. Edswor on

      It looks amazing and I hope the gameplay match it ;) . Also I hope the balance of the game has esports in mind.

    19. Erev on

      The replay/rewind function reminds me a bit of Achron. That game is scary.

    20. Christopher Wolfe on

      Something I was wondering, how close in does the zoom go? On the video, you didn't seem to get any closer than about the standard screen size for Total Annihilation, but does it get any closer, like in Supreme Commander where you could zoom in to the point where one unit pretty well filled the screen?

    21. retakrew7 on

      This is awesome! Outstanding work, really like your approach to things.

      Any chance of us having the planet gen to play with before the alpha?

    23. Pink-Pummy

      Oh god @ the last 3 seconds. LASERFACES OF DOOM!
      In any case it's shaping up nicely! Having that spherical terrain to build on is generally already an interesting new twist to the genre. Love it!

    24. Nasan Hardcastle on

      It's looking pretty sweet, but it really got me excited once the planet was zoomed out and I could see everything. I like the style you're putting into the environments too. The trees look cool.
