      Can we get *some* alpha files up on the Humble Store for Joust? Mac, Linux, PC, anything? It is the entire reason I backed this.

      What we can do is keep you at PS3, and let you know if Australia won't work out (and only switch you then). I've got you note down now, and we'll keep you posted (we're working on it)

      Creator Jesse D on September 13, 2013

      I live in Australia. I didn't read the original list of countries that the ps3 version was guaranteed for :( I've currently opted for the ps3 version. Do I leave that as my choice with fingers crossed Australia gets added to the list? Or do I need to switch?

      Hey everyone, catching up on comments after our big PAX trip...

      @Ben
      See recent FAQ update. We won't know about Steam for a while :-/ Hoping they'll say yes!

      @Steve @Nate
      Did you get a message from Ramiro about this? If so, we've got you marked down. If not, send us a message or email.

      @Jason
      Don't worry, JS Joust is coming. But the other three games are superb, don't sleep on them...

      @Raphael
      See recent FAQ update. We'd like to bring it to PS4, but don't know 100% yet. First we need to finish the PS3 version as promised!

      Creator Raphael Bennett on September 2, 2013

      I have a quick platform question: are there any plans whatsoever to bring these titles to the ps4? I chose to receive the pc version simply because once my ps3 gets packed away I'd hate to have to dig it out to play these games I'm truly excited to get my hands on.

    11. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Nate Smith on August 27, 2013

      Steve said "I pledged $75 as it was announced in Update 14 if you pledged $15 more you could get both the PC and PS3 versions, but it would only let me select one version. How do I select both please?" Same for me....just wondering what I do because I also pledged $75 for both but can only select one.

      Will the Home PC release be on Steam? If not, I will probably go for the PS3 version - but I would prefer the PC/Steam option.

      @Kevin

      Hey Kevin, we've had a few requests to *not* send as many updates, so we've been trying to save the updates for the "big" news. We've been sending smaller updates mostly via Twitter (@gutefabrik) and Facebook, and I've been doing back-and-forth about J.S. Joust on the forums.

      That said, if the desire is there, I can definitely do another update soon! For example, we'll be at PAX at the end of this month running some tournaments. I'll post about that soon.

      @Raphael Still planning to do a slacker backer option... stay tuned.

      @WhiteZero Got it. We've been hard at work, but will try to post some updates soon.

      @Adnan Early alpha build will still be Mac-only (well, hopefully Linux). Home computer build will come out a little while after the PS3 build.

      The Bluetooth hardware spec is 7, so that's the max for any one computer.

      And yeah, we hope to release the traitor mode in a future version!

      I literally bought 7 PS move controllers the instant I found out I could the JS Joust Alpha. Played it the other day and it absolutely did not disappoint. Can't wait to pull it out at my birthday party this weekend! My only disappointment is that the game doesn't support another 20 controllers, but then again buying those 7 for the one game is probably enough....

      Really looking forward to a "traitor" mode, was already trying to figure out how we could do this ourselves before reading the description again. Love games like the Resistance, werewolf etc. so any traitor mechanic would be PERFECT.

      @Matt I don't think they do because the navigation controllers (the nun-chucks) are slightly smaller. If you find one though let me know I want one.
