Ok, thanks for clearing that up! I guess the emails were just misleading.
^ Have you even been to Founder's forum?
No, thanks for the link!
I have been waiting so long for a true Star Control reboot. I really hope you guys do the game the justice is deserves. So many games have taken plot lines and character styles from the game without any mention of it. I truly hope this game turns out well.
What is "the great debate"?
I think you'll have to become a founder to get the answer to that.
Impossible. Been dying for a fresh shot of SC for a long time now...
Therefore I simply can't be involved with the early alpha/beta community - Fun as that might be.
Anything coming down the pipe soon?
Is the GDC unveiling still happening? Could not find you under exhibitors or elsewhere in the GDC schedule.
EDIT: Guess not. ;( It's been removed from the schedule.
Founders are getting monthly updates.
regarding the GDC unveiling, that's a good question. would like to know as well.
I purchased the early version, but there is nothing to download in steam yet.
Greetings! I am now a Star Control Elite Founder! Woot! Is there a way to swap 'founder badges' on your profile?
Is the final version already out?I realy wanna try this game! star control 2 still my favorite game ever!
No, but it will be out later this year.
I would really love play the game under NDA as well, and give feedback. I have played all 3 star controls many times over the last 25 years and I can't wait to jump into Origins! Please let me in!!!
Ok I am not getting it...I thought release date would be listed by now, is there a release date yet? I thought it was going to be 2017 then May 2018 and now we are in June... ???
Release date is September this year. The precise date will be announced at E3 next week but unsubstantiated rumors seem to be pegging it around the 24th.
I have this icon on my desk burning a hole in my screen but when I click on it it says missing the executable Tease
Are you a founder? If so then you should have been emailed a code that will get it to download what you need to play. If you didn;t get the email, one of the CMs or Stardock employees should be able to steer you in the right direction.
You can follow the instructions on the main thread for Beta 1.
Join us on Discord too. It's the most active place to get immediate help and provide feedback.
yeah I am a founder, will check the links presently. I must have missed that email.
