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.

As far as I understand it, this IS a full version, you'll just get the updates a bit later than the people who pay 30$

I suppose they get to play the indev stuff, which would be closest to the Minecraft pre-release versions. And the people who buy it here get all the new features when a version has been polished up enough.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm still trying to grasp it myself xD

You have a good grasp on it the 30 gets unstable new content but it gets new content, while this is just a stable build. But my issue is if i want a stable build i buy a full game not funding and no where does it say that you wont get the lastest updates instead i found out by going to their website to see a 30 dollar verison, so i would have to pay 10 then 30 so this is a rip off (war z style) and the messed up part i cant acesss certain forum items because i dont have the vip 30 dollar one WHO DOES THIS

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.

So for the 8 Bucks here you only get ONE version and no further updates? That is indeed a bit sucky. Well, guess thats why they didn't put it in the alphafunding category.

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.

no it updates but only when a stable verison is created when and how long could be months on months could be weeks but i pay for funding to get the lastest build stable or not

If you feel like you got jipped because the devs failed to explain something, then tell them about it. Post on the forums, email them, etcetera. They're reasonable guys, they're not trying to rob you, they're just asking for support, and if you feel like you weren't properly informed, I'm sure they'll be as upset about it as you are.

I see where ur coming from i emailed them and explained i would like my money back for not properly havingg it explained to me, it just bugs me that the option for the 30 dollar is not on here but the game looks promising and alot of fun and for all i am not knocking the game its nice and will be fun but im not going to be led by false info again. this is no form or fashion knocking the developers or their game, just a simple refund is all i asked.

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.

No need to upgrade, this is the FULL game. And by FULL game I mean the early, early alpha :)

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.
