      when will I get my digital reward (art book)?

    2. Team Pixel Pi Creator on November 12, 2015

      @Ariel Marcy Sorry there's no tutorial/button mapping, as the controls are quite simple. It sounds like you may have an input-related issue. The usual keys to throw are either left mouse button (kb+mouse) or the right trigger / R2 (controller). Could you contact if it persists?

      @Florian Brückner Sorry about that! I hope you're able to find a way to play, unfortunately the fully transparent world is extremely taxing on some cards. :\

    3. Ariel Marcy on November 7, 2015

      Hi Pulse team! I'm excited to play the finished game - it looks beautiful so far.

      But... I can't figure out how to throw the little guys (mokos?). Tried every key and looked at the "controls" menu item with no luck... Where is the tutorial / button mapping system? Thanks :)

    4. Florian Brückner on November 4, 2015

      Backed the campaign right after I played through the prototype about five times in a row and my excitement to be playing the final version the past weekend was off the charts.. turns out you made it too bombastic you guys, I can't even get past the title screen with my integrated graphics card :< Please tell me you have a deal with SONY going for a PS4 release :> Nevertheless congratulations on the releasing this wonderful game into the world.

      Nevermind, nSwarm on Steam discussions took care of it.

    6. Team Pixel Pi Creator on October 20, 2015

      @Tumor Can I ask what controller you're using, and on what system? We tested with a few controller types but there are many competing standards. I'd love to get in a button mapping in a patch.

      @goettel Thanks!

    7. Tumor on October 20, 2015

      What is up with the controller mapping? And why no in game button mapping?

    8. goettel on October 20, 2015

      Playing it right now & loving it. Great job guys!

      Heyo it appears the Humble page isn't properly showing Steam keys. We'll probably have to wait until Monday for them to get it working. HOWEVER! If you have redeemed the Humble key, you're OK, the key is properly redeemed. We'll post when its working and you can head to the page to get your keys.

      Sorry folks!

      I'm having the same issue as BJ Tomiko with the Humble Bundle page. I have an empty claimed page at this point.

      There seems to be some sort of problem with the Humble Bundle page. I'm unable to get any of my keys off of it. I can redeem the bundle and I have "claimed" my page, but there is no key or anything on that page like I usually see with other Humble Bundles I've done. I'm not sure if the issue is on Humble's end or yours.

    12. Tumor on August 27, 2015


      SO, how close are we to a release? I thought this game was an awesome concept and am sick of waiting :)

      Could you post a video of some gameplay or something? If it's being playtested, then it should be pretty easy right?

    13. Team Pixel Pi Creator on May 18, 2015

      @Will King No worries! Was just about to send you a message to let you know everything was in order :D

    14. Will King on May 18, 2015

      Please ignore my previous comment, I did send you guys the T-shirt information.

    15. Will King on May 18, 2015

      Am I one of the eight fools who haven't sent you their size and shirt preference information? I thought I did, but I'd like to check.

    16. FamousFireFighter on March 27, 2015

      Very happy with the last update! It’s good to know that the game is taking form and that you are making progress. I really hope you will have the time in the future to get regular updates out. It really means a lot to us backers to be kept in the loop and to see what’s happening. I’m still very excited for the game!

    17. Team Pixel Pi Creator on March 13, 2015

      @Robert, Tom Sauer, Luke Solis: Thanks for the feedback. Now that I'm back from GDC I'll make a few posts on some interesting technical challenges/systems, if that interests you.

      @Abdullah Al Ahmed, FamourFireFighter: The honest answer is we don't have anyone specifically dedicated to making updates, which means it takes time out of dev-time to come up with and post game updates. That said we're putting in an effort to get them coming more often. As it happens, this comes at the same time as we're packing all of these plushies and shirts, so its fairly easy for us to post that kind of content.

      Thanks for sticking with us, we know it's been a long time but we're still moving along steadily.

      This was one of the first projects I backed and this far the most disappointing. Looking at the recent updates, you would get the idea that this was a project to fund a plushie and not a game. What about progress updates on the game, screenshots, videos, game testing, developers diary… Basically anything to show us you’ve there has been any progress besides the production of furry toys.

      But hey, for everyone interested in a game with a similar idea check this out Might happen before Pulse. :(

      Abdullah Al Ahmed on March 10, 2015

      I'm really scared seeing all the updates for the plushies and not even a mention for the video game, especially after entering a new year without even a new screen shot for the project..
      I think I made a huge mistake pledging to this project

    20. Luke Solis on March 10, 2015

      Ball park figure of where you are at? what challenges you ran into and how you solved them? play testers and what you learned from them. Stories! funny ones, shocking, and inspirational.

      Soooo do we have an ETA yet? Coming up on 2 years since the project was funded and yet to see an ETA or updated demo...

    22. Robert on March 1, 2015

      I'm curious about the current state of the game, dates for when you hope to have the game finished, and when rewards should be shipped out.

    23. Team Pixel Pi Creator on March 1, 2015

      More info coming (very) soon!

      In the meantime, what would you guys like to see in updates? What are your top 3 questions right now?

      Pixel Pi

    24. Ashoholic on February 28, 2015

      These lack of updates is scary...

    25. FamousFireFighter on February 27, 2015

      Sooo, on the grander scale of things, is there any chance that the game will ever be finished or at least that a new update will be revealed?

    26. Tumor on January 6, 2015

      So, its January... How close are we to a finished product?

    27. Ashoholic on September 20, 2014

      Have the rewards been shipped yet?

    28. Team Pixel Pi Creator on September 8, 2014

      Hey everyone!
      Sorry for the delays between updates. We're hard at work on the game, and we're currently putting together a special update for you. Stay tuned real soon, there's some cool stuff coming around the corner!

    29. Oliver Kurelic on September 8, 2014

      Almost three months since the last update? Worrisome.

    30. Estephan Sarcinelli on August 8, 2014

      So, any news on the progress or a release date?

    31. Ashoholic on May 5, 2014

      Any update since Feb?

    32. sabata2 on December 22, 2013

      Aaand again it's been about two months.

      I don't want to be the nag here, but after having a prior KS finally announce it's failure, I'm going through and pushing for updates from those I've backed that have been pretty silent.

    33. Patrick van Dissel on September 29, 2013

      Any update on the game development, plushies and t-shirts?

    34. sabata2 on September 23, 2013

      It's been just over 2 months. How's the dev going guys?

    35. Ashoholic on September 2, 2013

      Would have been great to have seen this at PAX. Any news would be great!

    36. Shawn Lancaster on August 7, 2013

      I'm getting increasingly excited about Pulse. Any chance there might be a developer livestream at some point?

    37. TheChosenOne on July 14, 2013

      Still alive here? Any update?

    38. Luiz Georg on May 28, 2013

      Can I update my pledge to the 70$ level with paypal? If so, please explain to me how to do it

    39. Craig on April 16, 2013

      Congratulations! Really excited about this game, we were taken with it as soon as we watched the video.

    40. Antoine on April 13, 2013

      Unfortunately, I'm a arse when it comes to cash and am low on funds, so i can't honour my pledge at this time, but i'll deffinitely be sure to get some money in the bank by next week to fulfill it.

    42. Karen Flood on April 12, 2013

      Congrats on reaching you goal and more!

    43. Cheeseness on April 12, 2013
