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
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!

I gotta ask one more thing: Is this game controller enabled ? I find platformers a bit hard to play on mouse+KB sadly. Btw, I have a 360 controller.

You heard it from the engineer, we plan on making it controller enabled, we are just waiting till farther in development to do so.

We do plan on having 360 controller support, but only 360 controllers because they are very easy to setup, just havent gotten around to binding all of the buttons as that is pretty low priority :)

Right now in the beta, it isn't controller enabled. Down the road, when we start tackling keybinding and things of that sort its definitely something that people want and that we are likely to support.

At First glance, it seems a lot like futuristic Terraria with original and alien biomes, which can be good and bad at the same time. I'm practically sold for the 8 Euro copy, but I must ask some questions first :
1. How many "strange" biomes would we encounter? (The description says there is only one world).
2. What are the mechanics you're going to focus on? Exploration? Building? Fighting? Lots of monsters or items?
I'm not sure what to think and I'm sorry if the comment might be offensive to anyone (Is it?)
Answers would be nice :) thanks
Oh and I'm going to vote for you on greenlight, but it would be awesome if you could make those keys for steam work if I buy it here

Also, I don't find your post offensive, you just wanna know some facts about the game since it is still under development. Thank you for taking interest!

1: Not including special micro biomes, currently there are 5 major biomes. (We plan to add more in the future but want to keep focused as a very small team)
2: This is a harder question as some of it is intrinsic to the genre but there can be more leaning. The game will have a more (man/woman) vs Nature feel. Especially since your first MEGA goal of the game is to terriform/biostabialize the entire world.
3: We are working on the logistics about steam keys. There is always hidden red tape to deal with and it is under major discussion.

If you get the game, please come out and hang in the IRC and take part in the community. We want to be a community driven experience and we listen a lot. At the moment I'm still recovering from a pretty nasty flu, but normally I hang out int he IRC a lot. Hope I helped answer some of your questions.

Yes you answered some of your questions and the topic I favourited on steam greenlight answered my other questions, so yeah even if I'm pretty shy I'll try to show myself on IRC and forums just to play with someone, make a team and I definitely like the feel you are trying to create :) and thank you for your time answering!
Now I just wonder how much time would it be for steam to acknowledge this piece of jewel, I might wait to buy it until it pops on steam to avoid the matter of cd keys (I like to have all my games on steam), any idea of the ETA? If it takes too long I just buy it on Desura and the hell with it xD

Go forth and bring forth more greenlight votes. We are in the top 40, so the more votes we get the more votes we get the faster we can get set up to get in the future game pulls

Steam doesn't give any kind of ETA, its just whenever they feel it's gotten enough attention. As for keys, regardless of where you purchase it, you are given the same launcher, and the game still downloads from Multiplayer play won't be inhibited in any way regardless of where the game is purchased. It works very much like MC, and all games are player hosted. :)

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.
