So here we are. As foretold in the Memory Crystals of Kickstarteria, delivery drones are on their way to our Alpha backers.
Over the next few weeks, you'll have the opportunity to kick the tires and light the plasma fires, getting a taste of what's in store for the future, and giving us feedback to continue improving Astrobase Command.
There are a few conditions attached to the closed alpha, and we whipped up a fancy EULA to cover it that you'll be able to read later. To keep it simple for now:
It is private. Please don't share images or videos. You'll be able to do that once the open alpha arrives. We know there are still a few rough spots (it's an alpha, it's normal) and we are counting on you to help us make sure that Astrobase's first public appearance is as awesome as possible.
If you backed at SUNSHINE or above, you'll be receiving an access key to the Alpha (via Kickstarter or by email) . We're pretty sure we've proven the pipeline, but it's the first time we go through the process of passing keys out live, so there could be some friction points. We aim to make everything as seamless as possible, so if you don't see a key come in by Monday, Sept 4th, let us know.
What's your goal? Simple. Survive. :)
By the way, we're trying to create a new model in game development and funding through Patreon. If you'd like to know more, follow the link. We'd be grateful for your patronage.
