We have received word from The Repopulation team that they are ready to announce the next beta date and to release a bit more information about the Steam Greenlight campaign.
Happy holidays everyone. We have a few quick announcements to make that I am sure everyone will be interested in hearing about.
- Closed Alpha Round 3 now has a set date and it is March 2014. All Closed Beta Round 1 (before it was labeled Guaranteed Beta) backers will be getting a preview weekend during Closed Alpha Round 3, Beta Preview backers will get 2 weekends, and Beta Preview + backers will be let in the first weekend and will have access from that point onward. A few lucky people will get in before that as we will be letting another batch or two in before Round 3 starts.
- All Kickstarter backers as a small token of our appreciation will be granted Closed Beta Round 1 access. This mostly impacts everyone below the $50 pledge level during Kickstarter as everyone above it had Closed Beta Round 1 or better. This is only for Kickstarter backers, you will still need Closed Beta Round 1 access to quality in the post Kickstarter backer rounds.
- We are in the process of launching a new Kickstarter campaign that we expect to start during the week of Christmas. We have many cool features we are going to be looking at adding as part of stretch goals and those who are looking to back us or bump up existing pledges will be able to very soon. You should see the new video and a lot of new information and videos coming out during the Campaign, so for those who like a bunch of constant updates and features, you will be getting a lot.
- In parallel with Kickstarter we will be launching a Steam Greenlight campaign. It is an excellent opportunity to support the game and help us draw a wider audience by getting involved and helping to get The Repopulation greenlit.
We want to thank everyone for a great 2013. It has been a productive year and we are looking forward to 2014 and what it will bring.
