Have a question?
I'm with Shane, is there a new estimate for a release date?
So... is there an ETA or what? I'd rather not go traipsing all over the internet to find the answer. I backed your Kickstarter, not your discord server.
Hi Mohammad - Apologies for not addressing you directly. Dev side has been facing some complex problems revolving around the last few features and integrations needed, and this unfortunately is going to take them more time. I made a comment on the March Update post mentioning the delay, and have been keeping people in the loop directly through our Discord channel so once again, sorry that this information passed you. Effective communication is challenging when the community is scattered - so I'm working on fixing this. I'm going to be making daily updates on the Discord, if you'd like more constant communication from our end - I'd suggest joining our server: https://discord.gg/bsBJPHB This of course is a temporary fix until our new forums, and Steam community hub become active.
Thank you again for your support, and I hope you don't feel as if I was ignoring your post. The information you were looking was just in several different places online and not easily accessible for you - I get that, and I'm working on correcting it!
Maybe I am not patient enough, or I didn't receive the info.
My last comment didn't get any reaction.
Come on guys, If you can't keep a date, you tell the people about the delay.
I understand that game development is a tough task, that's why I backed you in the first place.
But not communicating with a backer is not excusable.
So I ask again: Is there any ETA on the Steam Beta?
Any eta on the steam beta? Last time it was the first week of April.
Hey all! There have been some exciting new business developments that have occurred this past month thanks to one of our backers showing DoL to one of his influential contacts, which could potentially mean some very cool things on the horizon. I don't want to go into too much detail now, but I will be sure to address this in our next update. This has taken some of our time because it could be mean some great things, but the dev team has still been pushing forward with our primary goal of getting a stable multiplayer build up onto Steam for you to download and play.
In the meantime I have set up a Discord channel for Thrive Games, feel free to join if you're into that kind of thing https://discord.gg/bsBJPHB and I am contemplating creating a private Facebook group to discuss the beta with you once we have sent out the keys. We will get our forums up and running with the new website in time, but our development efforts have been exclusively on refining our custom game engine and populating it with content. These are just quick temporary solutions for communication channels until the Steam community page becomes active, and we have time to fix up our website including revamping the forums completely. Does this work for the time being? If not feel free to propose another option, but I want these conversations to be somewhat private and exclusive to the Kickstarter backers.
@Leslie Scott Roman I know right?! I cannot wait for something to play :)
So excited...checking my email constantly haha
@Ulfbaen Heya, yep very close now. Had some minor set backs, but still aiming to get everything ready and get you playing via Steam ASAP. We will be notifying our backers via email once the game is ready (with the Steam key), so make sure you've filled in the survey we sent out with an active email address. All further communication regarding backer rewards and add-on packages will be directed to the email address you provide. Thank you for your patience!
Is this going to happen?
Hi friends! I have been off facebook for some time and my backer account is linked to it. I am looking for the survey so that I can help you guys out but also I miss you guys and hope it's going well. Lemme know how I can get you the info you need! :D
Getting excited! Hope to see that email soon :D
Its been so long I have forgotten that I even backed this project on here.
Hope we do game play soon, hype is returning to my SOUL!
Hope to JAM to the Amazing original Soundtrack.
Hey Holly, so for backers that have additional content added to their pledge, we will be contacting you directly via the email you provide in the latest survey sent out. We are working on getting the game playable and enjoyable, and getting you in ASAP. Additional rewards will be fulfilled in time, and most likely when the actual store page goes live, so you will be able to give your friends retail keys. Thanks again for your support
I am super excited! As someone who pledged extra for add-ons (extra games for friends) when will we be able to dictate how we'd like our add-on funds spent?
HOHOHOLY SHIT! I had no idea we were this close to being able to play! Oh im sooo excited to see how this pans out!
Surveys asking for a valid email address where all future communication will be directed have been sent out today.
Backers - Please take a moment to fill in this information, as it will be the email address where we will be sending your Steam key.
Higher tier backers - This email you provide us will be what we will use to reach you in the future to fulfill the custom reward portion of your pledge. Please verify the email address you input is correct.
Thanks everyone! Once I get everyone's response I will start distributing the Steam keys. Steam integration is still being worked on, and will most likely take us the rest of the month to finalize but once the key has been activated, you will be able to play DoL before it officially launches on the store page.
We are anticipating a private round of feedback where we can change/improve based on what you, the backers, would like to see and do before pushing the button making the game public. Moving forward, community involvement is going to be essential for DoL's growth because it will enable us to rapidly iterate and cater the experience to exactly what you would like to play.
Chomping at the bit for this!
This is one of the most exciting projects that I've backed in some time - so happy to see that we're nearing the next stages of its evolution! Can't wait to play!
I'll be posting an update this month regarding Steam keys, and sending out backer surveys asking for an email to send the keys to soon after. These keys will allow you to download the game via Steam and play Dragon of Legends on your PC.
Mobile users - Dragon of Legends is still currently in development and cross-platform play is a planned feature, but we will be utilizing Steam Early Access to completely polish and refine the product before it is brought to the mobile platforms.
I have been waiting so long to no life this game.
Steam contacted us today - we are now successfully partnered with them, and have now have access to the Steamworks admin portal. We're going to start building the store page over the weekend, I'll post here with the public link once it's available
Just to inform everyone - we are currently in the middle of the Steam on-boarding process for new developers, and once this is completed we will be able to send all backers their exclusive access keys. More info will be released in an update soon once we have completed this on-boarding process
Excuse me, would have iphone
Hey backers - here's the livestream from last Friday in case you missed it! https://youtu.be/WJoF1h-930A
Going to be live today at 2pm EST on our Twitch Channel: https://www.twitch.tv/thrivegames We'll be going over some of the game's current feature-set as well answering any questions you may have. Hope to see you there!
@Mallory The livestream has actually been moved to Friday Jan 6th at 2pm EST. I posted a comment on the latest update sorry if you missed it. Going to be going over those details then
I missed the live stream, any updates on when we should get something playable?
Link is now available in the latest update comment section
@ulfbaen Yep! Check the latest update - we are going to be holding a backer-only livestream to go over the progress made since the Kickstarter success, and showcasing the current feature-set in the project. I'm making a Facebook event page and will post the link there once done
@real I know, the forum on our current website is dead atm and that's my fault really. I've been dedicated on working on the game and didn't have the time to manage that as well. That being said, we have been working on a new website which will be going live pretty soon, and this will have an updated forum and house all future content once we have enough to show the public. Sorry about this, but this will be addressed once the new website goes up for www.dragonoflegends.com
It's kinda a bummer than we were supposed to get founder title and more avatars on the forum -- but the forum's completely dead and has been overrun by spammers. :(
@Ulfbaen Heya, just same news as I just commented - working on getting you something playable by the end of the 2016 year.
@Alex Sorry for not posting a formal update, but everyone at the studio is working on getting a build ready that Kickstarter backers will be able to try by the end of the year. Our plans are to still get onto Steam early 2017 (Q1), and we are still on track with achieving this goal.
Thanks for the updates. Can't wait to try it!
Yea that's basically what we're doing at this point, putting everything into a nice and neat little package that everyone can enjoy :D
oh shoot i can't edit comments, that's supposed to be 2016
Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that we're pretty close to getting a playable build for you! I know I said mid November - but we've been having some minor set backs this month so things are going to have to be pushed back a little bit. That being said, we're aiming to have something publicly playable by the end of 2017 for sure!
@matthijs Yea everything seems good so far to hit our anticipated launch of early 2017. We're working around the clock to make sure we get this done!
still going sharp on release time?
Hey Irxson, everything is coming together really nicely at the moment and all of our internal deadlines have been hit thus far. If progress keeps going at this rate we are anticipating that the first episode should be completed by November, and then we can have a late December/Early 2017 launch on Steam.
Any estimates on the release date? :O
That's sounding good! So close! I'm really excited for this game :)
