Hello everybody,

Some time ago, we announced that we were officially launching the Private Alpha subscriptions. Many showed interest in testing the early builds, and we thank you for that!

Yesterday was a important day for us, as we sent out the first batch of Alpha keys to the players, welcoming them on the first five planets of Untold Universe.

Day one summary

Up to this point, things are going pretty smoothly. Of course, many things are still to improve, and some bugs have already been found, but we had the pleasure to play with the first pioneers without any major incident after we sent out the keys.

The first colonies

Players quickly started to explore the five planets currently accessible in the game, and started to build bases on two of these, being New Haven and Mannhein.

They also built quite a good amount of spaceships, ranging from ultra-light ships to a massive one. The very small ships that you can see on some screens should not continue to exist for long as the design rules will soon get more complicated!

What's next

We already had interesting feedback on playability and bugs. As expected, many things still have to be fixed and improved, some being more critical than others. Indeed, along with the discovery of some bugs, we saw that players had some difficulties understanding how to build a ship, due to a lack of instructions in-game.

Thus, we will address as many issues as possible before the next release in a week, which should be a more stable version of the current client. With this release will come a new batch of keys!

Next step will be to start implementing core features like dogfight, trade, resources and such, and will be what we will mainly do for the next few months.

See you soon!
