Beta Invite Update! Also, Game Update!

Posted by Planetary Annihilation Inc (Creator)

We’ve got a wee bit of news to share, as you head into Saturday and Sunday.

First up: if you’re not smashing planets this weekend, you’re doing it wrong. As of right now, we have finished blasting out beta invites to each and every one of our remaining pledgers and pre-orderers. (We take our pinky swears pretty seriously around here.)

Thanks for your patience and all the kind words about the game. We love you and we’re stoked that you’re stoked about PA. If you didn’t get an invite go ahead and check your e-mail junk folders. And if you still can’t find it, give us a holler on our official support line. We’ll get it sorted out, no problem. Pinky swear.

Second thing: we’ve just released a new update. This one’s got a small fix for the folks having start-up crash issue.  

Of equal importance, this update also has a hot new tutorial that’ll teach new users how the economy works, how to build structures and units, and how to navigate the game world. If you’ve ever wondered about a basic mechanic, we got your back. Here it is, in all its video-y glory:

We’ve got a lot more awesome coming on the horizon. (Stay tuned through next week, for example; hint, hint.) See you in the lobbies, Commanders.

      Ahhh I checked the link in update #51 with an old email I was using a while back and bingo, shame I don't have access to that email anymore though, hopefully Uber will help me out. Fast update to help those of us left out at this stage. Can wait another few days all the same.

      I have not received my key yet either. It's no big deal, but I'd like to play as soon as possible.

      I had to dig back into my email for the link to the download link from the initial beta release email. When there's a client update, can you give the update link in the Kickstarter announcement? Or better yet in the popup box that tells you that you need a newer client to play when you open the game?

      Haven't received anything since December 2012 outside of Kickstarter. Early-bird backer.
      Not complaining, just putting information here for other backers to relate to.
