    Hi all. I recently posted an update on Kickstarter about our current comings-and-goings, but I felt it was important I posted here as well.
    • All digital rewards are distributed through the Humble Store. What this means is that everyone will have not only a secure website to download from, but that they will have an account as a backup incase you happen to lose your files. The closed beta is also done through the Humble Store, and a bunch of very talented people from the Humble Team is clacking away at their keyboard as we type in order to get you the game as soon as possible. All backers will recieve an email with details on how to receive their digital rewards soon.™ I know you're all excited to play and stream our game, and so are we. Trust me!
    • As the Kickstarter ended, we noticed that some accounts bounced/failed for payment, resulting in no reward. Oh no. Once we get the closed beta up and running, we will have, through the Humble Store, pre-order rewards very similar to those of the Kickstarter.
    For the Closed Beta itself, it will be up sometime tomorrow. Sorry! Please don't kill me. I know you all wanted to play it as soon as the Kickstarter ended, but we have to sift through thousands of emails, some bouncing, and organize with the Humble Store to make sure there are no bumps in the road.

    Once the beta goes live, head on over to https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresenderto receive your key for the digital reward tier that you pledged for. The reward tiers are:

    1. Game ($10+)
    2. +Beta ($25+)
    3. +Wallpaper+Soundtrack ($40+)
    4. +Game+Art ($75+)
    5. +GameGuide ($120+)
    Hope this clarifies any questions! Thank you all for your patience and your support of our game; we're as excited as you guys are :)

      Dirzain Yeah, You!

      I know you don't know for certain but do you think 'sometime tomorrow' will be within a couple of hours or will it be later in the day than that?

        It will definitely be in noon to afternoon area. Wish I could get it out earlier!
        • Dirzain

          Dirzain Yeah, You!

          Ahh, that's fine with me. I'm still having fun playing the demo so I'll just stick to that for now. Thanks.

            Thanks and congrats! Having the beta as early as tomorrow is awesome, don't sweat it! You guys are doing a lot :)

            EDIT: After seeing Dirzain's avatar it really made me wish there was a Morpheus character, haha.

              Great, it's very interesting game Might want to open a dedicated bug report forum. I'm looking forward to see what you do with the newer version of game maker.

              Co-op sounds interesting but will it be local only? also well is net play being considered?

                        Hey! Congrats on everything! I'm super psyched about the closed beta! But I'm wondering, is there going to be a confidentiality thing for this beta? Like where we can only talk about the it in a certain forum or something?

                        I don't mind either way, just wondering ;)

                                Wow. I expected it to be a few weeks until we saw the beta, so I'm certainly not angry. I figured that "end of the kickstarter" meant when the kickstater was finalized. In my experience with other projects this has always taken at least a week.
