      "For anyone who is interested, if you purchased this game via Desura Alpha Funding or Steam Early Access before the GOG release, you can get a GOG key by emailing the lead dev:!…"
      I suggest you do that since nobody's answering here.

    2. ThomasN on June 18, 2014

      Also: My condolences for picking the worst possible time for release on GOG (summer sale).

    3. ThomasN on June 17, 2014

      v1.05HF on Desura... is that the one just now released on GOG?

    4. Clocknova on June 17, 2014

      Will you be able to give GOG keys to those who would prefer them?

      I hope we will receiving Steam Keys or what not soon....

    6. Nathan Schmuck on June 3, 2014

      I figure they'll be a "IT'S OUT!" update?

    7. Tophernator on June 1, 2014

      Just saw that you released V1.0 on Steam. Congratulations! Really happy with the game and can't wait to see the official reviews coming out in the next few weeks. Best of luck to all of Goldhawk on their future endeavors!

      Sorry if I missed it, but is there any update on the Kickstarter rewards and when they will be delivered? Really glad I backed this, I just want that art book. Thanks! :)

    9. Andrew Easter - on March 23, 2014

      An update has been posted on when game development will end - 30th May. For all those interested it outlines the next steps

    10. WP - Member, Mutant League on March 21, 2014

      Great to hear from you since 3 February:

      V21 Stable Released (& how to recover saves)!

      21 March - Goldhawk

    11. Rick Grzyb on February 21, 2014

      so my pre release is still not doing anything?

    12. Goldhawk Interactive Creator on February 3, 2014

      Doing an update today, but in short: no, there's no set release date. The game is close to being complete, but we're going to play it by ear as to when we feel the balance is good enough to release. It should be anywhere from March onwards.

      The Russian tileset and level editor is already in the game, but the indoor missions were replaced by adding another outdoor tileset due to pacing reasons. I'll explain in more detail the reasons behind that on release.

    13. Niggles on January 31, 2014

      So whats actually happening with this?.Is there an actual delivery date for this year?

      @ Goldhawk Interactive,
      Will we have the stretch goals feature implemented soon? (indoor mission, level editor, Russian tile-set) :P

    15. Goldhawk Interactive Creator on January 24, 2014

      Yeah, sorry, I'll post one up next week.

    16. Xenophon on January 17, 2014

      Can we get an update on this project? Last one was in September...

    17. Goldhawk Interactive Creator on August 13, 2013

      The experimental build is significantly more advanced than the current Stable and we'll have a new stable release for everyone most likely before the end of the month. We're hoping to have the final game done by Christmas - we'll do a large explanatory KS update when the new Stable version comes out.

    18. Brett Zeleznik on August 8, 2013

      When is the final release going to be? I played the early access game but it got a little boring with the same 3-4 battles over and over again.

      Had a lot of fun playing the early draft of this till i spotted that my first base was single counting 2 labs. Think I'll hang back a bit and wait for release proper - but nice work so far - this is looking good.

    20. Goldhawk Interactive Creator on July 1, 2013

      If you're still waiting for a code, send me a message. I can't message individual backers from their profiles.

    21. Casey Brooks on June 28, 2013

      Still waiting for my code :(

      Even on easy, this game is WAY too hard for me. Even with lasers and wolf armor, I can't get as far as I hoped.

      Just got my code guys. Thank you and I look forward to the finished game.

    25. Knight PT on April 29, 2013

      @ Hans, I disagree. Game can only be judged when it's on the release form. A delay in the release date is something very common in all kind of companies ranging from realy big ones to small ones. Saying a game is crap because its delayed and you pick up an alpha version and say its crap because its the only version you can play on the time YOU decide it should be done is something i disagree. You can complain of the delay, but not say its crap because of an alpha version => 2 diferent things.

    26. Hans Melius on April 28, 2013

      @Knight, except the game was SUPPOSED to be released at the same time XCOM: Enemy Unknown released. So the fact that I still haven't received my finished game, I have to agree with Manuel.

    27. Knight PT on April 25, 2013

      @ Manuel Otera Moreira, are you for real? do you even know that the game is still in early stages of being balanced and the AI is realy still in early stages? like in ... the game is still in beta? like in ... not released yet ?

    28. Manuel Otero Moreira on April 12, 2013

      a crap of a game.
      in easy mode they dont know to shoot. the soldiers are stupid. shoot at other soldier or everywhere except to the aliens is patetic. to point to another alien is difficult and unfriendly.
      the aliens dont have a lot of mistakes but the soldiers....really int=0
      and drop a granade ..... or shoot behind a bush.... you shoot to the bush the earth the sky but to the
      FUCKASDFQ·$%!"·$ front no way. its a shotgun only look in the way.
      and money funds..... a sad day when i backed this .....
      a huge mistake backing this game.

    29. ThomasN on April 11, 2013

      With like a publisher I mean they enforce in Germany all players have to have the version without the blood and so on. Talk about artistic freedom.

    30. ThomasN on April 11, 2013

      You know steam is like a publisher and receives 30% of the game's money, right?

      Yes!, Steam keys!

      I've had issues with Desura too. Best workaround I know of is to go to their website, log on through that, and go to your CD keys page. You should be able to download the stand alone installer from there.

    36. Onno Ebbers
      on March 30, 2013

      I still have alot of problems trying to download through Desura... Am I alone in this, or is it a common problem?

    37. Goldhawk Interactive Creator on March 26, 2013

      Thanks. Big update coming in the next couple of weeks too. Got something I'd like to announce, but need to get a final confirmation first.

    38. WP - Member, Mutant League on March 22, 2013

      Oh this sound like a bad time/money sink, but I have faith you can handle it.
      So far reading the background story (iceland incident) and the occasional kickstarter updates is making me want this game to be my first xcom experience, even held of buying XCOM: Enemy Unknown :)
      Good luck hunting and fixing those bugs.

    39. Goldhawk Interactive Creator on March 21, 2013

      Current build has some quite major bugs in it, I'm not writing an update advertising it until it's stable again.

    40. WP - Member, Mutant League on March 21, 2013

      Wish there was a march update, even if it's from the bahama's.

    41. Paul on March 20, 2013

      Wow, this is taking a LOT longer than expected...

    42. Thomas Melberg on March 7, 2013

      Hope youre still kiling bugs and make good game ;)
      Take youre time and make it as good as i would :P

    43. Goldhawk Interactive Creator on February 11, 2013

      Sadly it's only cost-effective to ship the rewards together, so we're limited by the slowest ones to produce - the DVD copies, which can only be burned when we have the game finished. Possibly we'll look at getting the other stuff done first and shipping it to people who don't need a DVD (we've got more storage space now we operate out of an office) but I want to hit beta before I consider that.

      Sorry for the delays though, we're working on it as hard as we can!

      I have a lot of faith that Chris and his team will pull off a nicely polished product. I am patient and would rather see them finish it at their own pace.

      I hope they make a fortune with it too once it is released. I am sure there are a lot of people waiting to buy a final product.

      Jakub: I assume that he wants to ship as much as possible together. Although I don't know if there is anything that still needs to be finished before shipping it out.. maybe the softback art book?

      The expected october shipping date was the expected release of the game wasn't it? Since the release has been deleyd maybe the shipping of goods has been pushed back too? I don't know it is a fair question and I'd suggest asking it on the forum :)

    46. Jakub Zdzieblo on February 4, 2013

      Chris, what's up with the T-shirts? Estimated delivery October 2012... The spring is almost around the corner, I'd like to have something to wear when the sunny days come back!
