PA Alpha Weekend One

Posted by Planetary Annihilation Inc (Creator)

We had a pretty amazing first weekend of alpha for Planetary Annihilation. Since the first few keys started trickling out last Wednesday, til early on Saturday when every current key had been sent out, we have seen over 7000 people connect to the servers and play at least one game! Please go here if you should have a key and don't yet. In addition to seeing a majority of our Alpha players connect, we also got a number of updates pushed over the end of last week and through the weekend.

We’re already hard at work getting the next set of features, fixes and updates ready to go, and we expect we’ll have a similarly impressive list of new things in the game by this time next week! It’s been a great start to alpha, and we expect it to just get better from here.

For more details about the changes we've already made, check here!

And finally, we made a new trailer for our Alpha launch! Thanks all, and enjoy!

One final note: Physical goods have not gone out to anyone. They will likely not ship til closer to release. Please make sure you keep things like you shipping address up to date at if you're pledged for t-shirts, boxes, posters, miniatures, usb thumb drives, or statues.

      Same here.. Eager to try the Alpha on Mac. No mention anywhere of the platform just the assumption that you'd be happy with an .exe for the Alpha.
      On June 11 Swiftpaw emntions feedback stating a Mac version in the next two weeks. That would be about now.. Can't wait.. Please inform better on status for different platforms and expectations..

      Thanks @Switpaw. They should really mention this... I assumed that their client was available on all 3 OSes and lost 15 minutes looking for it..

      As Michael Pedersen said, this release announcement is once again only for PA backers on Windows. I don't know why they keep neglecting to mention that in these announcements, since it's so important for non-Windows users, but the ETA on the Linux and Mac alpha versions is, "We expect Mac OS/X to be available in the next week or two, and Linux soon after."

      Well done guys! Already shaping up to be a beautiful game :)

      I am very pleased with the alpha, really nice to see the first playable results!
      The bug tracking system is also very nice, great work indeed.

      Actually, they're working on both the OSX and Linux client. They're hard at work on it, and have things *mostly* working. Still got work to do though, but they're going to have them out for the Alpha release.

      Check this thread for lots of details:…

      Appears was my own dumb fault lol

      Finalized ages ago but never received my alpha details :(

      Please try to get the OS X client operational... the Windows client does not work under a VM without crashing instantly... and I'd like to be able to poke around in the game considering I've upgraded to Galactic edition.

      Any update on the iOS client?
      It is quite concerning that non of your update mentions the client for Mac?

      I cannot wait to see how the interplanetary combat will work in-game. Even though I want to play I decided to skip alpha because too many features tend to be broken or missing, but the new trailer looks amazing.

      Really stoked to try this out and start providing feedback, but I'm waiting for my Steam key on the 13th. Can't wait!
