Report article RSS Feed Non-playable Star Apocalypse Alpha Preview

We're releasing a non-playable Alpha preview of our work, so you can tinker with it, test its performance, give us feedback and see how far we are.

Posted by dirtbag007 on Jul 18th, 2012

Hey all,

In a few moments, a non-playable Alpha preview will be authorized in the downloads section. This will serve several purposes:

  1. Test performance on other systems.
  2. To gather feedback.
  3. To show you our progress.

Star NamesWe won't likely make the release date. As such, we will move the game into TBD again if we don't make it. This doesn't mean it'll take ages to get released. We just can't give an exact date for when it's going to be released. But once ready, it'll be released within a few days. It's done when it's done!

So, feel free to tinker with this preview we're showing you, and please give us feedback!

Thanks for your patience!

You can post them in the comments section of the download, but you're also free to post them in a PM to me.

We know that known issues are that there might be render issues on lower-end systems. Since my system is very high-end, I posted our work already (while it's far from done!), so we can see if we need to improve the performance further.
