Quick question, regarding the feedback you'd most like to hear:

Is there much point in testing various difficulty settings, at this point? Seems like if the baseline is still being tweaked, the difficulty adjustments are not going to be very accurate at all at the moment.

Congrats Godsidian!

 

So far I am having fun in the beta, the art design is gorgeous, the combat is fun and its very immersive. I like the audio to, the music and the background sounds.

 

Good luck the rest of the way

Nice, more youtube content to watch. At this phase I'm more prone to see already condensed content than actually play the entirety of the half-done game.

If you have purchased the Backer Beta or if it is included in your Kickstarter tier (all tiers of $110.00 or above) you can now head over to your Account Profile to redeem your Backer Beta Steam key.

 

Aw... that's a rather big disappointment after making such an exiting announcement. You release a Backer Beta that excludes most of your backers from using it? 

 

If you give kickstarter page a read you will see the lower backer amounts don't include beta. You do have the option though of doing a add on of 25$ if you would like to play the beta.

Downloading now.

 

I think complaining about not qualifying for the private beta when the requirements/cost have been known since basically the KS started seems silly.

 

Anyways,  should be inetresting. Time to play dwarfy!

Hey guys. Just wan't to be sure about something. Is the Early access beta key add on the same as the backer beta? As in I can play right now? or is this a steam thing that will only release later on?

You need the Early Access Addon (costs $25)

I see that now... I just had forgotten about the exact terms (It's been almost 2 years, after all!) and got excited about the possibility of finally playing around with an early version of the game.

Here's to hoping the request for decorum achieves an incredible twenty-five percent rate of return. 

 

Going through the impressions thread, it is apparent who read the Known Issues, and who elected to leave the instructions in the box. Anyway, awesome! Can't believe beta is HERE

Woohoo!

 

Just finished the download here in Germany and had a tiny sneak peek before heading off to work. I'm so excited for tonight after work, when I'll start play-testing! :dancing:

I'll be Digging in soon. I'll let you know what I Uncover. Get it... archaeology!

 

This may be a silly question so let me preface it. I know the backer portal is ending soon. Has any of the backed money after the original campaign ended gone toward the 4 mil stretch goal? Also, does the 40K likes thing still apply for one more level in The Endless Paths? Even if it has to be released late I'd like that to still be viable as we're only >300 likes away.

that's a no to both your questions. so far in development the design of the endless dungeon is basically finished. perhaps that's something for the planned expansion. btw the 4mio stretch goal was already achieved with paypal.

Hey, you can have my beta key if you want. I don't have time to play it right now, anyway, so I can wait until the full game arrives in the box :)
PM coming your way right about now.
