Update #15

Try the game for yourselves!

Tick-tock-tick-tock... We're getting closer to the end of the kickstarter. It's super stressful but there is no point in giving up. With all the work we've put into this campaign, it would make no sense to stop during the last few days. Besides, we have a new Ace up our sleeve...

NEW BUILD FOR EVERYONE

So, we've been working pretty hard to have a version of the game that we could openly distribute to everyone to show them that yes, GoD Factory is worth backing. It's even working with Oculus Rift, if you happen to have access to a devkit. Just press 7 on the num pad to activate Oculus mode, and 5 to recenter if the camera becomes offset (this happens every now and then and we are investigating a solution for this).

Please note, however, that you *will* encounter bugs, there's plenty of work left to do on our side, but at least you'll get a precise idea of where we are at. Note that it's also possible that some won't be able to join, we have very limited server space and we haven't tested the compatibility for a lot of PC and peripheral setups.

Also note that this build is available to anyone, but it will stay active only for a month and will not be updated. After that, only the backers who paid for beta access will receive build updates and access to our servers.

Greenlight Supershow + HATS!!

Saturday was the Greenlight Supershow, a Twitch marathon from 11Am to midnight showcasing plenty of indie games currently trying to get noticed on Greenlight. We were there at 5:30PM, here's the link:

By the end of the show, people were joking about adding hats as DLC to the game... until I decided that yes, we'd have a hat DLC for every kickstarter backer :-P

A big big big thank you to Alix for organizing this event!

Reaching out to LPers

We've been reaching out to many LetsPlayers on youtube and streamers on twitch, including all those you suggested in the comments. We'll keep at it and keep on insisting until something actually comes up (or until we meet the deadline).

and more to come...

We are not giving up, and neither should you. I know it's not very convincing right now, but we're talking about 44,000. Much bigger amounts have been raised in smaller time frames. Keep making noise, keep telling your friends, keep sharing. Tell them that we need it *right now*. Besides, there is nothing to lose for backers: if we don'T meet our objective, not a cent will be spent.

      We've had people reporting issues of mediafire corrupting their files, and to them redownloading the game worked. If this doesn't work, let us know and we'll make sure you get a functional build.

      Note that for now the build is only compatible with Windows PCs.

      I downloaded the preview and unZipped it but it won't load. There is a message indicating that there is a missing GoD factory data file. The error box says that there should be a data file next to the GoD exec file. Have I done something wrong?

      Afer reading my comment again, it sounds a bit too cold. I think it is due to the format I used to reply, something more factual. We love you receive feedbacks since it helps us improve the game. And now that we have a forum, this is the best place where to post bugs/feedbacks.
      Sorry again if I sound cold.
      Hope to see you on the battlefield!
      Best Regards,
      Pier-Luc

      @Dominik
      - there is an alert and chat message when you are 33% of your shield (the screen will be red in a later version), there is a message that says out off ammo if you try to shoot an empty weapon, plus there is a little indicators on the locking gauge
      -there won't be instant regenerating shield, either build your ship to have high shield recharge rate, share with other players, or switch ship more frequently so they repair while you are out.
      -i don't know what roll keys are (if you mean barrel rolls, we already have the manoeuvers)
      -HUD is not in is final form, it is an alpha
      -again, it's an alpha, GUI isn,t final.

      For later comments of that sort, the forum is a great place to post :)
      Best regards,

      We added a .zip link on the main page of the kickstarter :)

      If it helps, Alexander, you don't have to use a shareware app to open RAR files; 7-Zip ( http://www.7-zip.org/ ) is open source and completely free and can handle RAR files just fine.

      Correct AJ, it is indeed only for Windows at the moment.
      Alexander, you'Re right, so we'll add another link for a zip later today!

      Tested the Alpha and i like it :)
      There are some improvements i thought of i'd like to share:
      - Some message to return to docks if shield or ammo are low
      - Instant regenerating shields (no need to wait in docks for ages :) )
      - Add roll keys (best steering i've seen so far has "Miner Wars")
      - the target boxes are not very exact (could resize on target, too), but i think you know that..
      - GUI system has to improve, but i think you know that either

      GoD Factory rocks :)

      I take it that sample alpha is windows only?

      Creator Alexander on July 2, 2013

      Great news but please replace rar with zip file. Rar is not a format any system supports by default and software for it is shareware.
