      Hey, I never got my key when it was sent, and now the link is dead. I see you guys telling people to send a message on here, but for the life of me I can't figure out how. Help!

      How does one get there steam key?

    3. Star Command 2-time creator on January 29

      @Baehl, sent you a message.

    4. Baehl on January 29

      Good Morning, I was wondering: is Galaxies a part of the same game that I originally backed or is it a new product that I'll have to purchase?

      Also how do I go about contacting y'all about retrieving my steamkeys?

      Thanks!

    5. Star Command 2-time creator on January 29

      @Zachary, @Dustin Send us a message and we can lookup your email to send your steamkeys.

      Beta is out!

    9. Star Command 2-time creator on November 23

      We are still working everyday on it - but we are taking the hands-off approach until it is perfect.

      We had cruel warfare on Twitch testing it last week, and he said it was "a really fun game"

      We are on our last bugs - the final beta will have 5 major missions and then 25 or so random encounters. We expect launch to have three times this numbers as our focus has nto been content.

      Anywhoo - it wont suck - and it isn't fake.

      warballoon.com went to a squatter - we forgot to renew.

      I think I kickstarted this and Star Citizen at the same time, I didn't really expect progress on Star Citizen to go so much faster. 'Sup guys? Communicate with us please, we all gave you our money cause we believed you would make a neat little game, and some of us still think you can and will deliver on that, but it would be great if you kept us updated to as what is going on with your development, so that thinking you will deliver isn't just an unsubstantiated thought without real merit. :)

      Well, guys, I don't consider myself as not patient but it's 5 years now and I still didn't get several rewards from my 40$ pledge tier. Sooo... What is your solution for this situation?

      We aren't even perfectionists and it has taken this long... BUT progress continues - sooooon.

      A bit late, but HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY.
      I'm still positive, that I will get to play this game in this very decade.

    15. ThomasN on August 20, 2017

      When a game is "blown out", is that they same which happened with The Mandate, aka a PR guy flings lies until they prepared everything they need for cut and run?

      So its been over 7 months. Is there going to be an update again, ever?

    20. Anastasios Dimitriadis on April 8, 2017

      Any news on the final release?

    21. Star Command 2-time creator on January 31, 2017

      Love the beard Jack -

      We have plans for 2017 and the game will be done this year.

      The game is there, its just getting blown out now, and refined.

      Try alpha 11 or 12? most likely that will be 'beta.'

    22. Jack Green on January 31, 2017

      Any plans for 2017? A roadmap of some sorts? I refuse to touch alphas and betas, but I am still interested in playing this game when its done... hopefully it will be done some day, right?

      Send us a private message. We will get you sorted out.

      I see the game is on steam early access. I haven't received my key, sorry for commenting but I couldn't find a contact button. You probably have the wrong email for me, as that was quite awhile ago that I backed it.

      Are we allowed to give away the Beta / Alpha Key for steam, And i can't seem to find it, was it a separate email ?

    27. Star Command 2-time creator on December 11, 2016

      We're releasing Alpha 10 on Wednesday. Good timing!

    28. Rand Chua TL on December 11, 2016

      Just want to share this song. Seems the update going to be late and no news from devs.

      We are still hard at work, we are committed to delivering something worth talking about, so until that is here - which we are thinking in 2-4weeks.

      Still alive- still working hard! It is going to be WAAAY better than our Alpha 8

      Thanks for the update on the PDFs and Videos. :)

    32. Star Command 2-time creator on August 2, 2016

      The reason we have not spent the time to complete these is due to our wanting to have the game-mods finalized for how to actually make pixel art for the game.

      The digital art book is mean to be a post-launch PDF as we gather all of our stuff up and put it into a pdf.

      We have hundreds of pages if we wanted to for this lol.

    33. Star Command 2-time creator on August 2, 2016

      Star Command Digital Art Book will be easy to make as will the pixel-art videos.

      The Joy of Pixel Art will come out right around launch to help people make content for Star Command Galaxies.

      Alpha 9 of Star Command Galaxies should be on Steam in August.

      I don't recall seeing downloads for these items, so just posting a reminder:

      - "The Making of Star Command" digital art book
      - "The Joy of Pixel Art" instruction videos

      Waiting for those items before I check the "Got It" box and let the KS finally close out.

      Thanks!

      Are there any statistics on how many of the 5613 official backers literally died waiting for the release?

      Still haven't received the refund promised via PM. Please let me know if you received the PM. Thanks!

    37. Star Command 2-time creator on April 14, 2016

      @Spencer

      The truth is that while we are hard at work on Star Command Galaxies we won't have the bandwidth to be active on all of our social channels equally. Right now our primary focus are the steam forums - as that is where we get feedback to improve the game in the most specific way (specific bugs with the current version we are trying to have the community help us test)

      We try and check-back with kickstarter, but we feel that the best way to make everyone happy is to focus on making a good game, and that is what Steam forums help us do the most effectively.

      As usual - our recommendation for anyone on Kickstarter is to try the game on Steam and enjoy it! It is getting decent reviews and is improving every month.

    38. Spencer Ryan Barnes on April 14, 2016

      Just want to make sure that people other than your critics get their due attention too. And I know you love to battle your critics but there are people that are asking you questions and wanting to have a fruitful conversation that are rooting for you but we just kind of get ignored flat out.

    39. Spencer Ryan Barnes on April 14, 2016

      Hey I just want to point out you gave priority to the criticism versus the person who's going to spend money on a game. All be it discounted if I qualify.

      Hi devs,

      I've sent a PM message. Thanks!

    42. Star Command 2-time creator on March 25, 2016

      @ Isaac - while we will honor the refund, and agree that it has taken a long time, and is still buggy, but we simply disagree that it is only a 'buggy mess'

      The game is ambitious - but with a 70% review rating right now on Steam we know we are moving in the right direciton, while still being in Alpha. The bugginess is is a result of adding new features - while we agree, are very annoying. We try our best to balance bug fixing with new features, but Alpha is about getting the game feature complete (and playing accurately) we are still a bit of a ways form being 'bug free' or even 'balancing' - we are still implementing the last major features, and expect in the next 3 months to begin 100% bug-fixing and polish.

      We ask for patience, but we also are trying to inform what we are up to on our steam page. We are proud of the progress we have made since Alpha 5, and we continue to see it improving.

      Stay tuned, and we hopefully can win your support.

      Justin @ Warballoon.

      We've been promised a release LONG time ago. I supported a game, it's hard to consider it a game atm in a such buggy mess. So many years after and i cannot properly play the game. I understand you might be a small team but a this point i hthink i've waited enough.

      I demand a refund.
      Thanks!

    44. Spencer Ryan Barnes on March 5, 2016

      Hey guys, as a backer for this project, do I have any discounts or special offers for the mobile game? Thought I'd try it out.

    45. Cresendo Sotuyo on February 12, 2016

      Any updates on soundtrack? I haven't seen anything on it yet.

    46. Star Command 2-time creator on February 10, 2016

      Sounds great Frank!

      Just sent you a message through Kickstarter!

    47. Frank Bueckert on February 10, 2016

      I no longer have any faith in the developers to provide anything but a buggy broken mess. The communication with backers is so bad it boggles the mind, and we still haven't gotten anything at all that we were promised. I'm demanding a refund.

    48. Arlo Collier on January 15, 2016

      If by any chance you read this you can contact me at kaceyrepublic AT hotmail.com easiest. The spam filter on my kickstarter email can be aggressive.

      P.S: Congratulations on getting this game done.

    49. Arlo Collier on January 15, 2016

      Okay, I never got this key. Tor Iver Wilhelmsen' advice about using the Dec 2014 Key failed to work for me and how the hell am I suppose to know how to send the creators personal messages - I see no way of doing so here.

      So hm. Cross-posted from relevant update,
