"Possibly even more shocking is that, in contrast to other projects attempting to build funds to finish their game projects, Divergence is actually open to the public for testing right now."

I don't know who referred Divergence to Sandboxer, but they seem to have provided a pinch of misinformation.  The alpha is only available to those who give $100+ to kickstarter.

I think Casner said they have something currently open that people can see the game world without donating right now. Here's his comment from their KS page:

 

"Anyone can log into the game and check it out or not even without a contribution. But you log in by default without any powers of any kind so all you can do is "look". If you want to actually be able to interact, create, destroy, etc, that's where your Alpha Gold status comes into play. I'll be posting this as an update as well to help clarify. Thanks guys!"  -EthanC

 

On a related note, this is an interesting chart:

But that aside, the number of backers doesn't seem to add up.

 

"And wikipedia is as accurate as Britannica. Wikipedia is very reliable. You would be hard pressed to find a more reliable source for these kinds of things." -fivoroth

Yep, actually you *CAN* test the game without being a contributor.

 

According to Ethan, from the Kickstarter comments: Anyone can log into the game and check it out or not even without a contribution. But you log in by default without any powers of any kind so all you can do is "look". If you want to actually be able to interact, create, destroy, etc, that's where your Alpha Gold status comes into play. I'll be posting this as an update as well to help clarify. Thanks guys!
