How often do you put out updates?

So far we’ve been putting out weekly updates to the game, our plan is to keep doing that but we’ll see how that shakes out now that we have many more players. If we run into a really bad bug we will of course do our best to get a fix out ASAP.

Additionally we put out weekly blog updates on the progress and state of the game development.

I have alpha access, can I use take screenshots or record footage from it?


We’re currently in a Closed Alpha state and want to make sure things are good enough first. Unless of course you only use them to help us further the game by only sharing them in the Alpha Access channel in our Discord.

I love the game, is there any way for me to support you guys further?

As soon as we figure out a good solution for how to do this.

Will my Alpha/Beta key give me the final game?

Alpha/Beta denotes when you first get access to it.
You’ll keep having access to the game all the way to full release and get all the updates along the way from when your key becomes valid.
