      Hey guys, I seem to be running into a bit of trouble. I don't seem to have a Steam Key available to me despite backing at the $25 level, and even though I've registered for the forum. Is there a step I missed? Thanks!

      I guess I need a code to download it - I don't seem to have received one (or maybe I lost the email). Could I have my code re-sent to me please?

      Creator Iofhua on November 7, 2012

      Do $25 level backers get access to the alpha and beta versions of the game? If so, how do I download a copy?

      - Bronson, We're working on the sound crash bug. It's somewhat common.
      - Liam, apparently you picked up a cursed banana. (Ok, we have no idea what that is. Report it on our bug report forum!)
      - Niels, Yes, we've sent codes. Email tkeene@sandsweptstudios.com if you have not received your code yet.

      it seems that when the game tries to initialize the sound, it crashes on me, any ideas?

      hmm i downloaded dead linger but ever time I try to run the game it crashes, do I need any specific settings on in the video options?

      Oh good, its not just me then. Got the email just then to create an account on their site and use the code, guess it's just being hammered by all the backers.

      Creator Spektyr on June 30, 2012

      I'm guessing the June 2012 Estimated delivery is a bit... unrealistic.

      Any idea what we can realistically expect?

      @Lewis I was going to mention Dead State but I see you're already on there. :D

    39. Ss2avatar.small

      Creator Lewis on May 29, 2012

      I'm actually encouraged to see all the interest in the Day Z mod. TDL's Kickstarter already went very well, and Day Z's success shows that there's a sizable number of players who want something different from their zombie games--not just shooting, but thinking, planning, interacting and surviving. As for competition, good ideas are bound to have company.

      @Mike: Well... They're wrong.

    43. Missing_small

      Creator Mike on May 25, 2012

      I tried DayZ, I think the concept is very cool and the interaction with other players is very interesting as there's no safety at all, so trust becomes and issue. However, it seems like there is little to do other than the most basic survival. I know you can repair vehicles which is cool, but apparently that is very difficult and the vast majority of players will never be able to do it., especially alone. I mentioned The Dead Linger in chat, someone said that he felt it was way too ambitious and they'd never manage to pull it off :).

      Creator Gary on May 19, 2012

      Hey guys, not rush or anything but ARMA II Day Z MOD beta was released today, you might have a bit of competition on hand. I'll email you a link
