Steam Release Time Frame
« on: March 01, 2016, 05:00:04 PM »
I just saw the update showing release plans for Pre-Alpha, Alpha, and Beta, but what about Steam Early Access? I haven't preordered because backerkit didn't appear to take PayPal. I was calculating Steam Early Access to begin mid-May, but now it doesn't look like it. Are you planning to raise the price when this hits Steam Early Access, or will I be able to budget the current price?

Also, any chance first day Steam customers will get any kind of extra forum access? I totally understand if you don't have answers (that you can share) to my questions, but I would like to know whether you've made decisions or whether you're planning to make them later. :)

Hi MongooseCalledFred,

Sorry for the delayed response. We're aiming for something like late April/early May(ish) for Early Access and we're still reviewing the price point. As for special forum access, it's currently for the alpha and beta testers/backers only. Hope this helps and thanks for your interest!  :)

Thanks for the response. It's nice to know my estimate was long. :)

For anyone else following this thread for price news, I found this in the Steam forums, posted by Massive Damage:

Early Access price will be $14.99 USD with a launch discount. :)

On my end, this means I will probably pick up two copies, depending on the size of the launch discount. :)

14 hours till unlock... 11 hours ago it was 1 day and 12 hours... did H-Hour change, or is Steam just not precise above one day? ??? Either way, I still have more like 30+/- hours before I actually hit the tutorial.  :-\

The midnight launch of Halcyon 6,
"The Chruul are coming!" was almost said,
'Twas only 3 hours away and some clicks,
But asleep would be MongooseCalledFred.

The midnight launch of Halcyon 6,
The Chruul would be waiting there cue,
'Twould be so simple to put in their kicks,
But of their opponent they had no clue.


Huff, huff. Must keep focusing on the other stuff I'm getting done... ::)

P.S. Now, why does my browser suggest "Cheerful" as a replacement for "Chruul"?  :o ;)

It downloads,

it boots,

it can't sink with the Steam Cloud,

I click Play Game.







And it Launches! I'm listening to the totally epic Main Menu music as I type this. ;D
