Tried the download from your site, and the account creation failed. Is this game still supported online?

Nevermind, today it worked. Shame this game isn't going to get finished, it's a lot of fun.

System requirements, download size and is there actually a hard copy for sale?

Interesting but tragic... perhaps the Desura alpha-funding program would have helped (then the Linux beta could have been posted up for us to test out), and Aren may have gotten something out of the project.

Edit: D'oh! Moron me, here, didn't notice it *is* in Alpha funding... sorry Aren! :-(

The game is fun, but some descriptions are vague. I just completed juggernaut map with my frigate, contributed all 100% of materials, never died, killed 8 ships, didn't repair, and STILL have not unlocked ship of the line.

If that isn't good enough, then what is?!?

You need to be able to do 35,000 damage in under 10 seconds. Park your frigate in between of two towers with explosive ammo equipped, pop Now or Never and Good Stuff, and you should have a much better luck. :)

You get a message when you accomplish it correctly.

That makes so much more sense than what I've been trying. I Just did a 31,500 in 10 with my lvl 49 ship, so I'm getting close. Still using a lvl 36 cannon is slowing me down....

I just played the web demo, but it was quite a lot of fun. Very visually appealing, and looks like it has a lot of replayability due to customization.
