      So, what goes on in the "Underground" forum, exactly?

      Phew, glad to know - I was getting a bit worried there for a moment :D

      @Everyone - NO SUBSCRIPTION required to play etc. Nor to unlock anything. It is just a way to get a more INSIDERS look at how the game is made.

      @Jouni - no it is a voluntary thing that gives you access to privately streamed design meetings - has nothing to do with the game, just gives you a bit more access to the process of how games are made.

      I honestly have no idea what this post means. Are you saying that the game is now subscription based - and with high-premium subscription model launched before the game is even in Alpha?

      I know I'm a lowest-lever backer - a fan of old Descent single player campaigns who just wanted to follow where the project is headed. If the direction was to be good, I might have purchased the full game once I got myself a non-potato PC. However, if the way I read this announcement holds true, I'm disappointed already. I hope I just misunderstood this announcement.

      Clearing up the confusion via a confirmation - one way or the other - would be nice.

      Talk about bait and switch, take my money, then tell me that I can pay a substantial amount more for extra benefits. This should have been front and centre during the campaign. Whole thing smells bad, I wouldn't have backed the game if these costs were explained at the outset; or maybe that was the plan? :(

      Will DU now be a subscription based game. If so, I certainly would not have backed this game if I knew this.

      I think I have this now.
      So basically my $35 package is now worth $25 in the new pledge store. Awesome!
      Then I have to pay another $79 to $99 per YEAR to read the inside information on what is happening with the game development forum and to get alpha access.
      I am not impressed!

      Can the week in review info be put here? I don't bother following blogs.

      Exactly.. How does this affect backers? Not clear on this either.

      How does this new store affect us backers?
