Beta Release Date

We've got some awesome news to share this afternoon: beta begins on September 26, 2013. 

In just a few weeks, you'll be able to smash planets and wage war on an interplanetary scale -- provided you have access to the alpha or beta. This is sort of an all-hands on deck moment for us. The entire team is working like crazy creating new features and special effects that we hope you'll enjoy as much as we do. 

Jon and Marc talked a bit about what to expect in the beta today during our livestream, which we've embedded just below: 

[Note: the video cuts off kinda abruptly due to a technical issue; we’ll separately upload our Toy Rush section.] 

Again, thanks for your continued support. Without you the dream of making this awesome game about blowing up planets wouldn't be possible. If you have a question just hit us up, either via our Twitter, our Facebook, our forums or even via e-mail: mailbag [at]

We'll be back with more updates soon.

      this was my first alpha entry, and it's been... interesting, but i can't wait for beta.

    2. Creator Rikard on September 15, 2013

      Will it be possible to save solar systems in beta or is it to be expected later on?

    3. Creator René M Jensen on September 14, 2013

      Soooooooo excited :D i of course hope for a build between now and beta, but oh well :D its gonna be amazing.

      Even just more optimizations hehe, game is A BIT laggy when you have just 500 units out now. But its nice to see it moving forwards.

    6. Creator vastowen456 on September 14, 2013

      Not all backers, only the ones who backed 40$ +.

    7. Creator Luuk Schagen on September 14, 2013

      Jeffrey well, only if you pledged in the beta access tier.. Kinda makes sense doesn't it ;)

    8. Creator Jeffrey on September 14, 2013

      I assume all the backers get beta access right?

    9. Creator Volo on September 14, 2013

      This is going to be fun!

    10. Creator Xenophon on September 13, 2013

      I'm not even participating in the Beta and this excites me!

    11. Creator Michael Cooper on September 13, 2013

      Normally I hate repeating myself,... But its too exciting!

      Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Beta, Mushroom, Mushroom!

      Does it make sense? No, But it's what I imagined in the last update where it said "You poke your head in the office for just a few minutes and undoubtedly you’ll hear it a couple times."

      Congrats people I can't wait to check it out! :D

    12. Creator Orcus on September 13, 2013

      Awesome! The next few days will be the longest in my life :D
