Only-Dave, a single individual has access to our customer register, such as your e-mail address. I will forward your concern to that individual. Thank you.

Game looks good been following it for a while. Will have to get an ebuild in Gentoo made for it. Yes not all of us run Ubuntu :D. Joke, but really if I had the money I would definately buy this game even in beta stage. Need some more native MMO games for linux that look this good. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind words, rattatoue! The game is however not an MMO in the 'massive' sense. It is merely an 'online multiplayer' game for up to four people playing cooperative expeditions or versus each other in the arena.

I provided feedback in-game while playing the Linux beta. I have some screenshots with artifacts too, where can I send the screenshots?

Very nice Beta by the way! I'm very impressed with the graphics and detail so far...

Thank you!
We would be the most grateful if you would upload them onto our beta tester forums at forum.threegates.se, that way it will come directly to our quality assurance people.

Hey there! Not sure if you still have keys left. But I would certainly love to get one and test this game out! It looks very interesting!

This sounds and looks absolutely fantastic. Being a broke college student is balls, otherwise I'd be devouring this instead of Neverwinter.

Kudos, and thanks for creating something that captures my imagination and attention.
