Update #10

Alpha trailer #1 is now available.

5 comments

First off thanks to the A and B team testers that were able to get in and help with the trailer and provide some excellent footage for us to use.  We officially started Alpha testing yesterday and are happy to release our first trailer for Alpha.  Now that the first day is over it is back to even more work addressing bug reports, getting more content and features ready for the next push and of course ongoing testing with the early team and the next wave of testers in the following months.

Next up is the Kickstarter campaign itself.  We are getting close to the last few days and will see what happens once the video starts to make its rounds.  The last 3 days of a Kickstarter project are always an interesting ride so lets hope it is an entertaining and good one for us.  We have been insanely busy the last few days getting ready for Alpha testing and getting this video done, but we did identify a few further stretch goals and hope to get a few additional ones out as well before it is all said and done. Thanks again everyone and please remember the modifications and Beta Preview we announced in the last update are already valid as there was no goal attached to them.

      I would like to know if these features are completely Kickstarter contingent, or if they will just take much longer if the funding does not reach that level...
