      Any chance this will come to GoG?

    2. Creator Star Command 2 days ago

      Yes, everyone who backed gets a steamkey for the fullgame.

    3. Creator Maus Merryjest AGL589 3 days ago

      I backed the game at the $40 tier- I hope that means I'm getting a Steam key? :)

    4. Creator James Baugh 3 days ago

      Don't fret guys, you told us it would take a while and you're keeping us updated. Building something new and amazing is tough work. Rock on. Galaxies is going to be great!

    5. Creator John Mariakis 3 days ago

      Got the Steam Early Access email today - I can't remember: Do backers get a Steam Key if it gets greenlit?

    6. Creator Star Command 3 days ago

      Greenlight. Tomorrow.

    7. Creator Joey Culotta on August 26

      As it's been a while since I backed this lol did we ever get the swag stuff (soundtrack, pixel art videos, etc)?

    8. Creator Martin O on August 13

      I was also wondering. Thanks for the fast reply!

      Extremely busy. We have penciled mid-september as our Early Access release. Working very long hours right now to meet that goal. Our silence is just us busy as hell.

      Fear not!

    10. Creator Al Romaithi on August 11

      Appreciate the Devs if they can release update now and then, but keeping silent is sure a bad thing.

    11. Creator Anibal on May 25

      @Christoph For the PC version they are on Alpha 4, meaning they are still far from delivering the full game. I don't know how many versions they plan to release before moving to Beta. Then after some versions of that, they'll release the full version.
      I'm pretty sure they'll deliver, but for the date I have absolutely no idea. By the rate they are releasing versions, probably early 2016.

    12. Creator Star Command on May 9

      You can check out our mobile port and test builds that we plan to finally release as an update into the app stores.

    13. Creator DoughnutDoney on April 18

      I was also wondering when we will see the full version of this game for the PC (as it was what I put my money for). Its another game I bidded on seems now years ago and still not got a final result. I know you all are working hard on this...but I am getting a bit worried now.

    14. Creator Fomdoo on April 17

      I recall there was going to be a PC release for the Star Command mobile port. Months ago you were only weeks away. Are we ever going to see that?

    15. Creator Christoph on March 11

      Hi, I'm lost. Too much alpha, beta, mobile, new game(?) information for me. Can someone tell me what the current status is for people who backed the game with $25? Has there been anything released yet that I missed?

    16. Creator Star Command on March 4, 2015

      Alright - apparently there are a lot of duplicates on the list. We don't know why but we're working with SendOwl to fix this. Apologies to anyone whose e-mail gets hammered with updates. We will get this repaired before the next update!

    17. Creator Star Command on March 4, 2015

      @Sam Mayo
      Your name was duplicated as well - four times. We're not entirely sure why some people were duplicated but we are looking into. Apologies to you as well!

    18. Creator Star Command on March 4, 2015

      @Charles Bonnell
      We figured it out! Somehow during import your name got dropped in three different times. We're looking through the list for other duplicates but from now on you should get only one notice. Apologies for that - your name might have been the one at the end/start of new imports (we were limited to groups of 2500). But we're sorry about the inconvenience!

    19. Creator Charles Bonnell on March 4, 2015

      Another 6 emails from the Warballon guys with no way to unsub. Please get ahold of them and get us a link to unsub from emails.

    20. Creator William Goff on March 1, 2015

      Wow, I can't believe I funded this in 2012...

    21. Creator Star Command on February 2, 2015

      Sorry about the e-mail guys! Not sure why its doing different things for different people. We are also subscribers to the SendOwl account and we are only getting one version of these. Trying to diagnose!

    22. Creator Charles Bonnell on January 29, 2015

      I will also leave a comment here since these guys do not seem to read the updat area. STOP spamming peoples emails please. 13 emails in two days. Sheesh.

    23. Creator Sam Mayo on January 29, 2015

      Warballoon, PLEASE stop spamming my inbox! Do you really need to send the same email 5 to 8 times? Even tried unsubscribing but the link didn't work!

    24. Creator Simon Kramme on January 29, 2015

      My email is getting hammered with your latest update..

      No doubt it's great news..

      It just don't make the news 5 times better to receive the same mail 5 times..

      Please stop the spam..

    25. Creator Mike Overhill-Smith on January 29, 2015

      Not really appreciative of you spamming my email with the latest announcement six times - can you please restrict your emails to just one?

    26. Creator Calvin Cheng on January 29, 2015

      Keep em coming, great stuff!

    27. Creator Star Command on January 28, 2015

      ALPHA 2 UPDATE is out... for PCs. Unity and Macs are not getting along, we will diagnose but this isn't something that is going to be as easy as we'd like. We thought we'd get this build out to PC users and keep on chugging on the mac fix.

      Hope you guys enjoy it!

    28. Creator Star Command on January 19, 2015

      UPDATE: We will be delaying the Alpha 2 update to next Tuesday, January 27th. We are having some problems with layered objects and wanted to polish those up before we sent the next update. Apologies!

    29. Creator Nathaniel on January 9, 2015

      Any news?

    30. Creator Nathaniel on January 1, 2015

      Happy New Year Everyone!

    31. Creator Nathaniel on December 25, 2014

      Happy holidays everyone!

    32. Creator Wojciech Flis on December 23, 2014

      holly crap dudes wooooow... you just kill the christmas spirit hehehehe....well done. NONE not the space ship creator none the alpha1.0 works. Well it works but I have no idea whats going on and you crashed my laptop twice. Genious !!! If it wasnt for KickStarter I would think its a VIRUS or is it :P its amazing, slow on the lowest settings!!! My laptop is crap but I can play MassEffect 2 on it. So what it is that this game is so damn powerfull to crash my PC twice.
      Well Im haveing a trip to the bug planet right now. Gigant Slow Crushing Bugs !!!!!!!!!......

    33. Creator Nathaniel on December 22, 2014

      Just trying to help you guys out. The more updates you push out the faster everyone and myself can find bugs.

    34. Creator Star Command on December 21, 2014

      @Nathaniel et al - Thanks for your guys feedback in the forums here:…

      We are already hard at work on a few of them - keep em coming gang!

    35. Creator Star Command on December 21, 2014

      Graham - Yes, we are using Sendowl because we want to distribute galaxies in an organized manner - that way we can track popularity of updates, who didn't get an email, and lots of other goodies. The problem is they may not have been the greatest choice, as their server is down for us on our fourth day of release. Very, very frustrating.

    36. Creator Graham Kozlyk on December 20, 2014

      So is there a downloads page for the alpha of galaxies (as i have s.c.i.e.n.c.e.), or is it purely by the broken sendowl?

    37. Creator Star Command on December 20, 2014

      SendOwl is down. We can't update the e-mail list right now. This is extremely frustrating for us as much as it is for you. We promise we are working getting this distributed. We may murder a bird today.

    38. Creator Nathaniel on December 19, 2014

      Alpha bug list in the forums please add to any I missed.

    39. Creator Jordan Cooper on December 19, 2014

      Hey guys, just giving a heads-up that I haven't gotten an invite yet. I dunno if I'm still in the pipeline, though, but just wanted that out there. Thanks! The alpha looks fantastic, and I still hop on the mobile when I get bored.

    40. Creator Star Command on December 19, 2014


      1. We have sorted out who did and did not get an invite. The problem was the speed at which we uploaded the 7000+ names to SendOwl. For some reason some names stuck and some just didn't - it was random in nature so we are putting up everyone that wasn't on the initial list up. We will be doing 500 names per hour with a total of 2300 remaining, so the download link should be slowly trickling out across the day. We will also be doing a third check after all the names have been added to make sure everyone got an invitation. Apologies for this.

      2. We have issued an update to the Windows version of the game that should address the install errors and problems with the ship not appearing upon startup.

      Thanks for all your patience! This will get smoother and smoother as we go.


    41. Creator krayzkrok on December 19, 2014

      I got the alpha running, the latest update. I can see my ship, but there are no crew on it. I can scroll around, mouse over objects, pause the timer, but... well, I figured there might be some crew.

    42. Creator Nathaniel on December 19, 2014

      Yeah right click failed to produce results, I also redoubled my efforts in attempting to get it to work going through additional keyboard possible binds but I haven't been able to get any positive results.

    43. Creator Star Command on December 18, 2014

      I know this is a dumb question but we will ask anyway - are you using right click? Also - we appreciate the congrats. Stressful but rewarding day today. Support is well received.

    44. Creator Star Command on December 18, 2014

      @Mike Cascio
      Send us a message over Kickstarter!

    45. Creator Mike Cascio on December 18, 2014

      I realize you gents must be very busy following the release of today's alpha, but it appears I haven't received anything from SendOwl. Could you suggest a course of action so that I can get started sending crewmembers to their doom?

    46. Creator Nathaniel on December 18, 2014

      Also Congrats on releasing your alpha!

    47. Creator Nathaniel on December 18, 2014

      For the life of me I cannot figure out how to get my crew to move. I manage to get a red cube overlay when I tell them to walk and then they point in that direction and nothing more. I attempted pressing every keyboard button in conjunction with the different tasks. (I assume that's what the thought bubble is supposed to convey.) I also could not place any objects. I tried letting the bottom right time run at different speeds to coax my crew to do something but I regret to say that also did nothing. On a positive note the alpha looks very nice and I enjoy the music, load screen, and introduction dialog.

      Also while extracting the alpha I got an error that I will post in the forums.

    48. Creator Dave Kin on December 18, 2014

      You can move your guys, but they will for some odd reason decide to fire upon floors and walls or in the direction of the objects/location you are interacting or moving to. Furniture placement cannot properly detect the places where they can be placed. Some valid placement spots on the ship places your furniture in another dimension. When characters move when furniture placement is in progress, the furniture vanishes.

    49. Creator Star Command on December 18, 2014

      Psychosama - well the alpha is simple, but you should be able to walk around, place objects, and get in fights, even pickup things and put em in your inventory - but there is no real deep gameplay yet (you can move the guys right?)

    50. Creator Psyckosama on December 18, 2014

      So how do you do... anything?
