Update #38

Dead State on Steam Today, Info About Codes

36 comments
67 likes

Hey everyone,

Dead State is going on Steam in a matter of minutes. We're going to be sending out the codes for KS backers and Pre-Orders as fast as we can. Email server limits and issues may prevent us from sending them all out at once, but we will process them until we're done. If you don't get a code right away, don't worry, it's coming. If a day or two passes and you still don't have a code, message us and we'll see what we can do. At this point, the team is pretty wrecked, very little sleep, two leads down from fevers, etc. We're hoping to make this as smooth as possible, so please be patient.

Thanks, everybody - enjoy the demo, and please feel free to leave feedback on our forums!

      Hey guys, thanks for the key! I just received it. Am installing the game as we speak :)

      I'm sorry to hear about your two leads down from fevers. I know how they feel, I got stricken down with a serious flu myself yesterday. But that's not gonna stop me from playing DS.

      I hope everyone feels better soon. And all of you need to get some sleep now!

      First of all, thanks for the key. Secondly, PLEASE don't let the usual negativity from the steam forums discourage you. Historically, they can be a very tough bunch to deal with. Frankly, I cringe anytime I stop by to read posts there. Rest assured, their opinion does not speak for everyone!

      Thanks for the update guys. I'm really looking forwards to playing this. I'd forgotten I'd backed it and nearly bought a copy earlier this evening as it appeared on Steam. Thankfully I read the info about it being 'Early Access' and noted the Kickstarter reference; so, thought I'd better check as it seemed familiar. Glad I did.

      A day or two is nothing so don't fret. Looking forward to jumping in and checking it out though. That's for sure. Once you've got it all taken care of, however, you definitely need to take a break. Hope the two leads out with fever end up taking a turn for the better. I'm definitely hoping for a successful run on Steam for all of you. That'd definitely do wonders for lifting your spirits.

      If they DO work themselves to death to hit the deadline, there's a very good chance they'll just reanimate... So, as long as you put hockey masks on them, they won't be a risk biting the other developers...

      Seriously guys, good work... I look forward to playing...
