Alpha update, holidays at Arakion
Alpha is going extremely well so far. We have resolved a lot of issues (including some game breaking bugs.) It's taking a little longer than expected but the game is playing great.
I have received a lot of emails for alpha access and love the enthusiasm from everyone! We're letting people in a little slower than expected but I appreciate your patience. I have not responded to each email individually but as soon as you're in the alpha you'll know. We're currently considering letting all remaining Kickstarter backers into the alpha at once in order to save the time of sending out individual emails to everyone.
We're working a little slower this week while we're on vacation but our goal remains the same at trying to allow everyone in alpha before the end of December. While that estimate may be off by a week or two I don't think it will be delayed that much, and overall Arakion is going smoothly.
As far as physical items once the game is in beta we will begin to send them out. This means there will likely be a month or so delay but I'll make a larger update on that soon. We currently just don't have the time or manpower to spend time getting the items ready and sending them out.
As compensation the longer it takes for you to get in the game or receive your items after December, the more exclusive in-game content we will be sending to everyone as a form of saying thanks for your patience. We are currently working on exclusive backer races and classes.
Thank you so far to all the alpha players input and I can't wait to get everyone else in! I hope everyone has a fantastic and wonderful holiday season and happy new year. We'll see you in Arakion!
