      So it has been 5 days, still no message or email. I never received this product. No download key, no email, nothing.

      I must have misplaced my invite or never received it. I just noticed it was in early access, so would be great if I could be sent instructions on how to receive rewards.

      i just went over my not delivered projects on kickstarter and this time i decided to write something on this one...
      it is a shame! you promised a version for linux, yet there is none. this is false advertising.

      Just wanted to say that I am having fun playing the game.

      Hello Boris!

      We're sorry for the delay. Behind the scenes we've run into a few unexpected issues, and we are working hard to get this issue resolved. We hope that we can earn back your trust once we get through these growing pains as a new indie start-up.

      yeah.. next week... never mind... not interested anymore...

    12. Crash Wave Games Creator on September 9, 2017

      Hello Boris!

      We're currently working out some bugs related to implementing the Linux update, so it may be some time, but we're working as fast as we can to remedy this situation! We're not exactly sure when we will have everything fixed, but we're hoping in the next week or so if everything goes to plan.

    13. Boris Bernhard
      on September 9, 2017

      and the next update will be when?

    14. Crash Wave Games Creator on September 5, 2017

      Hey Boris,

      After we read your comment, I want to let you know that we have a plan to release the Linux version of Iron Tides in our next update. Stay tuned, and thanks again for your comment.

      on August 30, 2017

      never mind...

    16. Crash Wave Games Creator on August 28, 2017

      Hello Boris,

      I understand your disposition -- and we are working towards a Linux version as quickly as possible. Iron Tides is currently available for PC/Mac, and we are steadily pushing content to the game (it's coming along nicely!). We'll have further details updated to our page, and I'll personally PM you when a Linux version is ready.

      For now, thank you for your patience.

      still nothing for linux... this is really disappointing...

    18. Crash Wave Games Creator on August 18, 2017

      Thanks for your feedback, Dimitri! We'll look into that. Please feel free to submit any suggestions or feedback to the Steam discussion board for Iron Tides:

      Started to play the game and its awesome aside from the skill tree unlock mechanic. You need to put a point in every skill to unlock the next. It kinda limits your build options

    20. Crash Wave Games Creator on August 12, 2017

      Hello Boris!

      We have been busy working with our community and ironing out some technical issues as well as working on some basic features before moving on to building and testing a Linux build for players to try out.

      We should have a Linux build by the end of August. Thanks for your patience!

      Hello g047br41n. We are looking into this problem of incorrect keys, and we apologize for any inconvenience we may be causing.

      Anyone who has received the wrong key, please let us know at, and we will find your proper key from our records. So far we have been able to respond and get your proper keys within 24 hours or less.

      Hello Julia Sprague. We're sorry about that! Streaming is absolutely allowed, and very much encouraged! We will fix the errors on the webpage to ensure that this does not happen again.

      Thank you for your patience, all, and for supporting our project.

      g047br41n on July 27, 2017

      I have a similar problem. I just received a key and it says it is already being used by a different account.

    24. Julia Sprague on July 26, 2017

      There's a page on the website about streaming, but the page goes nowhere. Is it ok to stream the early access game?

    25. Crash Wave Games Creator on July 26, 2017

      Anyone who receives a key that does not work, please send an email to and we will rectify the situation asap.

      @Tim Frobisher

      Just wait a bit. I am sure Crash Wave Games will look into their Database and verify your Information and then get back to you.

      In my case it seem like I have got a Key a couple of months ago provided but never used it till earlier today so they assumed that the Key was still free and therefore gave it to someone else meanwhile :D

      Something like that can always happen but it still did suprised me when Steam showed me the Key already in use also I had never touched it once.

      Funny Fact:

      I used the Steam Tool to contact the User that got meanwhile my Key and I`m pretty sure that someone might have got earlier todays therefore a suprising message from Steam that ask them from where they might have got their Iron Tides Key from :D

    27. Crash Wave Games Creator on July 26, 2017

      Hello TouchGameplay. We're not sure why that would have happened. We will investigate what the cause may be on our end, but have sent you a replacement code in your email and thank you for your patience.

      Hey Andrew! In the Steam browser there is a "Games" menu located at the very top. Under that menu you should be able to find "Activate a product on Steam", and follow the prompts to add Iron Tides to your library :D

      Thank you all for your support and patience during this exciting phase.

    28. Tim Frobisher
      on July 26, 2017

      I got a key but I have the same problem as TouchGameplay. Steam says the key has already been used. I would appreciate a new key.

    29. Andrew Valkauskas on July 26, 2017

      Received the key, but not sure where to download. Steam only gives me a buy option.

    30. TouchGameplay
      on July 26, 2017

      How is this even possible:

      I tried to used my Key that I had in the got provided (Early Bird Full Version Key (For Post-Early-Access)) and was informed that this Key was already used by a different Account on Steam.

      How is such a crap even possible? Disable the Key you had provided the Backer "TouchGameplay" so far (Y****-*****-****V) and provide me please a new One since there seem to have something went very wrong in this case on your side.

    31. TheCaitularity on July 26, 2017

      Received, thank you!

    32. Crash Wave Games Creator on July 26, 2017

      Hello Cait! We've manually sent you your key. It should be in your email :D

      Hey Robert. We're dealing with a minor technical issue on our end. We'll be sending out the next wave of keys soon. Expect something this week. :D

    33. Robert Bown
      on July 25, 2017

      Enjoying the game but when do we get the second key for the game?

    34. TheCaitularity on July 25, 2017

      Haven't gotten my key yet (backed the $15 tier).

    35. Crash Wave Games Creator on July 24, 2017

      Hi Harry,

      We've just launched a July update with further details - your key will be with the email you used to fill out our survey. I'm going to ping you, please check your inbox. :)


    36. Harry Fishback on July 24, 2017

      I also did not receive a key.

    37. Crash Wave Games Creator on July 24, 2017

      Hey Christoph,

      Reedo on April 11, 2017

      Hey guys, can someone explain where I can find the most recent version of the demo? (I am a 35$ backer, so I believe I should get early access)

    47. Missing avatar

      Gareth on February 17, 2017

      Hi, I can't get the mac demo to do anything - what should I be doing to get it to run.
      Tried clicking on the app file and just get a "The application Iron Tides Demo" can't be opened" error message - am I mussing something obvious?

      on November 13, 2016

      Why do we have to choose an OS in backerkit? I thought the game would be Steamplay anyway?

    49. Crash Wave Games Creator on November 4, 2016

      Yay! Funded! Thank you.

      For those who are emailing about backerkits (UPDATE #18) - it will take a few business days to make sure no credit cards have bounced. The delay is normal and will be resolved asap!
