This is crazy, I had no idea, there would be interest in the $30 version. And let me be very clear, the Desura game is the FULL game, EVERYTHING. The $30 is our VIP access to everything we are doing, even horrible experiments that will never see the day of light. But hey, if you guys are interested in participating, we are all for it.

The game was meant to be at $20 to actually be monetizable, but we thought lets just make it $10, we want people to afford the risk, while it gets better. Little did we know. Hehe.

But again, just PM us and we'll get you on the VIP threads and everything we are doing over there. Bring your math and physics skills with you. PM asap so we can give it to you at no cost, we'll update the description so players don't feel misleaded.

This is awesome, thanks guys for the support.

First of all, thanks for your support.
About your concerns and others expressed, as rozgo wrote on a previous reply: "You are getting the same game, but from a different perspective".
Now what does it means?
- You are getting updates, this version will be updated when the updates are fully tested and approved, many of the stuff we're doing at the site are experimental so there is a chance they won't be on the final game.
- The main difference with the site's version is that we're making the game along with the contributions of the members, this also mean our members are getting unstable builds, in fact often the versions are more unstable than we'll like :) but is great to have their support and feedback.

If you are impatient and would like to test the buggy versions and help us shape the game, then contact us, we'll be happy to have skilled players aboard.

It is the weekend, please give the developers a bit of time to handle this for you. It might be possible to do an upgrade for you or at the very least issue you a refund.

I had no idea people would be interested in VIP access to our experimental stuff. But if you have mad skills in physics and math and can help us shape the game. Come on board. PM for a code to get full access to VIP. The more skillful people we have helping in VIP the better. We just can't get much help from players that don't understand PID controllers, Inverse Kinematics and complicated stuff like that. So Desura is the FULL game without the hassle.

You bought the full version with your 8 euro purchase, when the game is finished you won't have to buy the 30$ version. The 30$ version give you the chance to influence the development because you get to share your thoughts directly with the devs, you get the VIP access in their forum and everything optional that will come out in the rawbots universe like iOS/android software and things like that you may not be interested in, but to be clear: YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY THE GAME AGAIN! THIS IS A PRE- ALPHA THAT GRANTS YOU THE ACCESS TO THE FINAL RELEASE.

Ouch, so much hate, I was sleeping. Did we really F'd up that much, "rip off war z style" much? Man leave that for when I sleep for 24 hours. We'll give you full VIP access if you PM me.

Now seriously, the more hardcore physics and math guys we get on VIP the better, just PM us.

Uhh, not true. You get updates but of stable builds. I have purchased the $30 version and as far as I know, the next stable release you guys will get is with full multiplayer functionality. I think this should be explained to Desura people here because I personally wanted all updates immediately rather than wait for them, so I bought it for $30.

You will certainly get your refund, these guys are on a different timezone than you and it is the weekend. About $500k has already been spent on development of personal developer funds (their own money), they wouldn't rip you off for $10 or any amount. That is not what they're about. It is good you mention this confusion because it shows that perhaps the devs need to put the $30 version up here as well.

Incredible robot sim. The game is already amazing in this under-developed state, and it will only get better. What really boggles my mind is the versatility of the parts. You want to build a lunar lander that can travel through space from planet to planet? I did that yesterday. Want to make a dragonfly that actually flies? Go ahead and beat me to it. If you like robotics, design, maybe a little architecture, or just like awesome robots fighting, building, exploring, mining, even terraforming, the…

This is not a game at all. At best it is a prototype. It is FAR from even being close to being ready. This should be free or not listed at all. it looks nice graphically and it is easy to see it holds alot of promise. But this needs ALOT of work. At the moment it is a waste of money to pay for something with so little substance. Even if the dev means well. Work on it and make a kickstarter or something. Then give this as a bonus perk to doners.
