Have a question?
@Pedro: I've just sent you a message :)
Hello. Is it possible to upgrade my previous pledge to get access to the beta? Thanks.
@BeeTHLe BeTHLeHeM: If you'd like to see what we're working on between Kickstarter updates, you can check out our weekly update posts on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MonomythGames) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/MonomythGames). We'll also have a new Kickstarter update out this week.
Are there any updates on the project?
@Pavel: We're still trying to shore up a date for the beta release - we don't want to get it wrong. We'll have an update out soon, and we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we have a release date!
When can we expect the Beta?
Wow...completely forgot I backed this...
@Scott: When the full game is released, you'll be able to download it and retrieve your Steam key for the game at the Humble link you received last year. Let us know if you'd like us to re-send your link!
How do i know if i got the main game? Like i got some alpha code a while ago....can yall check on that? Thanks!
@Creator Great stuff! I like the sound of that. :-)
@Leon Everton: Definitely a possibility - the game is pretty well-suited to touch screens. We'll be looking more into this as we get closer to release! :)
What about an Android port?
@Hunter Robbins: Thank you! After all the support backers have given us, we’re keen to keep you all as involved in the process as we can. �
It's refreshing to see that you're still at it and still come here to give backers updates almost a year and a half after the project launched.
Still patiently waiting, and still mega hyped for the game. Keep on keepin' on!
We’ll have another early access release before the full game which will have a section of the full game, and a different story to the alpha. We’ll have some details on this upcoming beta release in our Kickstarter update in the next few days.
If you mean another beta release as well as this, we’ve also thought about releasing an updated version of the alpha to reflect all the changes we’ve made. Although we don’t want this to interrupt development of the full game, if it wouldn’t take too long we’d be keen!
Are there any plans of doing a 2nd beta. Maybe the same scenario but with the updated features?
@Jackson Szeto: Unfortunately we don't have a solid release date at this stage, but we'll be posting a Kickstarter update in the next few days with some news about our release schedule. Hope that helps!
Hi there, since it's the middle of the year, is there an expectation on when you'll attempt to release the game for all backers per your last comment?
@Jennifer Tsagaratos: Hi! If you'd like to be a little more updated on our development progress, you can see our weekly dev posts on our Twitter (https://twitter.com/MonomythGames) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MonomythGames). We'll also have another Kickstarter update out in the next couple of weeks!
Any new updates on the game so far? I'm really excited about the game!
@David Rowe : We're keen to keep you all in the loop about our progress - if you’d like see what we’ve been working on from week to week, you can check out our posts on Twitter (https://twitter.com/MonomythGames) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MonomythGames). We’re saving our more detailed updates for Kickstarter, to avoid sending out update emails to everyone too often.
Still excited about this game
It would be great to get more frequent backer-updates on the project - even if its just mundane things the team are working on, screen shots, concept art etc.
Good momentum for your team too to be posting, say, fortnightly updates
@Paul Toderas: You'll receive a link to download the game on its full release - this is tentatively scheduled around the middle of the year. Once we're more certain about a date, we'll be sure to let everyone know in a Kickstarter update.
If you'd like to follow our progress from week to week, you can like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MonomythGames) or follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/MonomythGames)
Hello. When will I receive this game please?
@Jeremy Faust: No, it's not too late! You can send us a message with your details and we'll get your name in there :)
Hi back in December I saw that my name wasn't one the backers list and I asked for it to be added. Well I forgot and you told me to send a kick starter message but I don't see that. I hope it isn't too late!
@Ryanne Tyler: CL10 backers will receive the game on its public release, which is tentatively scheduled around the middle of the year. We'll let everyone know when this date becomes more concrete!
Hey there, when will Clearance Level 10 receive the game? Just wondering, thanks!
@Rich Burgess: Great timing - we're currently working on an update which we'll post in the coming days!
So it's been a couple months! hope things are going well :)
Any chance we can get an update on what you guys are working on etc ?
Thanks I recived
@ppm4587: No worries, we've sent you a message with the details.
Sorry, I was out more or less a half year. How I can see the polls and download the alpha in humble bundle (Clearance Level 9), and will try to test the games at nights and read all the mails of project's kickstarter
@Hunter Robbins: Awesome to hear you enjoyed it - we've got many improvements incoming for the full game which we hope will make it worth the wait!
@internisus: Great suggestion - we're not sure if it will happen, but we have discussed the possibility of re-releasing the alpha story after the full game is out, with updated features and design. Closer to release we'll look more into how feasible it would be, but if we have the time, we're keen to do this.
My understanding is that the Skeleton Key alpha is a standalone story. Will it be updated when development is finished to reflect any gameplay and technical improvements seen in the completed game, or is the Skeleton Key in as finished a state now as it will ever be?
Keep on truckin' monomyth!
Loved the Alpha, extremely fun, and was super sad when it ended because I wanted mooooore.
Excited for the release of the game and can't wait to see the finished product. You guys rock
@Fiddlemaster: Thank you for the feedback and the bug report! We totally agree about needing to improve the clarity of evidence, so this is something we’re focused on at the moment.
@Geekfelix: We’re still working toward a tentative release in late Q2 this year. We have a more specific schedule we're working to, but due to our past miscalculations, and to avoid disappointment and frustration, we don't want to lock that in until we're certain. As soon as we have this confirmed, we’ll let everyone know in an update.
Is there and updated release date? I know there were setbacks and real life events that happened, so just wondering if there is a new release date.
And that was me playing on the latest version when I noticed that bug btw
I played the Alpha a little bit when it first came out, thought it was a little harsh at first before I realised how the criteria for each day worked. One thing I would mention is that sometimes it's unclear what messages I'm supposed to flag, for example one where someone blurts out that the suspect has done sonething and they confess, but simply flagging both doesn't seem to penalise you that much.
I DID notice a bug when I was playing the Skeleton Key path (trying to avoid spoilers) that on the first day you get access to "it", I couldn't see texts or replies until I was finished with using the program. Everything was normal from there.
@Jeremy Faust: We don't seem to have a backer survey response from your email address - no worries though, if you send us a Kickstarter message with the name you'd like in the credits, we can get it added!
Hey I didn't see the my name on the pdf could you please help me?
@Mikko Mäkelä: Thank you - we did resolve a freezing issue, but we'll keep an eye out for this happening again.
As for the tutorial - we totally agree, and we'll have more time for later releases to implement a clearer and more intuitive tutorial system. Cheers!
Here are some comments from my son; they might not be needed anymore, as there has been bug fixes after he played the game:
- Once or twice the game froze after i completed mission
- There should be a tutorial or video about how everything works for first time. Then its easier to remember what u need to do.
@Mark Petiya: No worries - check your inbox! :D
Would you be able to resend my Alpha key as well--seem to have misplaced it if I ever received it. Thanks and have a good holiday season!
@Scott: You can find it at your Humble link for Need to Know - we've re-sent this to you in a Kickstarter message.
How do you get an alpha key?
@Alston Cheung: Sent! :)
