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

      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.

    3. Star Command 2-time Creator on August 2

      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?

      @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.

      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.

    9. Spencer Ryan Barnes on April 14

      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!

    12. 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.

      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!

    14. 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.

    15. Cresendo Sotuyo on February 12, 2016

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

    16. Star Command 2-time Creator on February 10, 2016

      Sounds great Frank!

      Just sent you a message through Kickstarter!

      Cheers,

    17. 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.

    18. 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.

    19. 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,

    20. Jack Green on January 13, 2016

      Has The Joy of Pixel Art videos been made and released somewhere and I missed it, or is it still in the pipeline?

      Haven't received my steam key . Please give me the key !! i cannot whait to play!!! ;)

    22. Star Command 2-time Creator on October 28, 2015

      @Frank Sorry if it came, off that way, we truly mean that as an independent gaming company rely on reviews to get the word out on our game. Sometimes people like the game and forget to review things positive, or don't realize how important a POSITIVE review is compared to a negative one. Who hasn't had a great dinner and not reviewed it on yelp, but sometimes we are quick to give a negative review if something went wrong.

    23. Frank Bueckert on October 28, 2015

      I have to say, your latest update begging for Steam reviews is incredibly tacky. I'm tempted to provide a negative one for that reason alone.

    24. QuantumC on October 23, 2015

      I never recieved an email to get the steam key. I could never get any previous versions to work either. Tried android and earlier pc version, worked for maybe 5 minutes. Is there an iOS version?

      Not trying to be an ass but did we ever get the swag stuff (soundtrack, pixel art videos, etc)?
