The coming days and weeks are going to be crammed full of news, and we are excited to share the first few items of that today. Firstly, we have just released a brand new, much more polished launcher. We hope this will be the final time we have to update it, but either way we are very happy with how the new version has turned out. Everyone will be able to update automatically via patch, so no need to worry about re-downloading the game. To note, some users may need to download the latest version of C++ redistributable.

To make that easier, we have included a download link in our forum thread for the new launcher, found here:Playedgeofspace.com
We would also like to let everyone know that time is quickly running out now for the pre-order prices and offers. Be sure to get in and get the game now to still be entitled to a Steam key when we launch on Early Access!

Once we are selling on Steam, copies purchased on Desura or RainDG will no longer come with a Steam key.Since launch on EA is looming closer, we will be releasing details soon for how to obtain and redeem Steam keys for all of our pre-order and Kickstarter customers. We know everyone is plenty anxious to start playing through Steam, and we are so excited to be getting so close! It still feels so surreal to the team, watching all of the work we've done over the last year come to this point.Keep an eye on the forums and community, there is plenty more news on the horizon! Stay awesome, ArkCo Operatives, and we'll see you next time for ArkCo News!

So I seem to have a problem. The game won't start. I was able to start the launcher which patched to the latest version and restarted. Then there was that button saying "Lainch Application" which did nothing if clicked.
So I uninstalled EoS and reinstalled it. Launcher was once more patched to the latest version, but that button still does nothing if clicked. The same goes for the "Repair Download" button.
Maybe theres a problem with ports? Since I am only able to use 80 and 443.
Specs:
4GB Ram
i3-3120 @2.5
Intel HD 4000+GeforceGT 635M
Windows 8 Laptop
DX11
Game Installed in "C:\Games\Edge of Space"
Hope you can help me.

The game no longer functions outside of Steam. You will need to log into your Arkdrop.com account, and redeem the key next to "download." That will bring you up to the new version of the game, and should take care of this issue.

Woah, you're kidding right? So people who bought it here have to use Steam now? If true, that's totally unacceptable.

Ah, I see you're no stranger to controversy:

Reddit.com

Well I won't be buying the game until the DRM-free version promised in the Kickstarter is available.

We do not use steams integrated DRM, we only use steam as a distributer, because we are a small team and need the ability to distribute the game easily. As for the version promised in kickstarter, that was something we promised to our kickstarters after release.

I'm sorry that's how you feel but we did the things we did to accomplish our goals, and create a good game :)

Just to make sure I understand correctly, you mean once the game is installed you can play without Steam even running and you can move the game's folder out of Steam's folder, then uninstall Steam and still play the game?

That's less bad than I thought but still bad. Requiring Steam to install the game is still DRM, it's just activation per-install instead of per-play. Not only that, but people who bought the game here are now forced to use Steam. This is pretty unfair for those who don't like Steam and didn't buy the game there.

Fair enough about the Kickstarter thing, it is true that only backers who picked that reward are entitled to a DRM-free version but it's pretty weird not to make the DRM-free version available to others since you have to make one for the backers.

Thanks for the reply, but it's still killed the interest I had for this game. I'm not interested in buying any more games that require Steam and on top of that I think forcing Steam on people AFTER they've bought the game is pretty scummy.

I'm sorry, to be more clear, there is a difference between using steam as DRM, and as a distributer, both require you to run the game with steam however, but the added DRM does encryption to prevent piracy, we dont do that.

I understand that you feel this is 'unfair' but without making this change it would have DRASTICALLY slowed down the progress of the project and we felt it would have been less fair to to take months longer to develop each patch.

That's not true. There are some games on Steam that, once installed can be played without Steam running (or even installed). I can understand how those could be argued to be DRM-free, but if EoS needs Steam running for you to play then that is in no way DRM-free and I'm fairly shocked that you'd try and claim otherwise.

If you choose to put DRM on your game then that's fair enough, but at least be honest about it.

"I understand that you feel this is 'unfair' but without making this change it would have DRASTICALLY slowed down the progress of the project and we felt it would have been less fair to to take months longer to develop each patch."

It doesn't change the fact that you've moved the goalposts. Steam as an option is all well and good, but to suddenly require all the people who bought it on Desura to use Steam is just not ok, especially when it's not even DRM-free on Steam.

If you were just using Steam as a distributor and it was only needed to get the updates and not to play I could sort of understand.

That is indeed true. We were losing extensive amounts of dev time trying to keep up with multiple builds. For that reason we chose full Steam integration. The good news is, that allows for offline play, and for us to have disposed of the extra login.

Edge of Space is already a fantastic game, and getting better every day. The amount of progress since Day 1 beta back in June is absolutely staggering, and I can't wait to watch it get even better

Not really impressed by this so far, I think I might stick with starbound when it comes out soon, since the developers are already almost going to release it soon! This game wasn't much of a bang for your buck and wish I didn't spend the money.
