4/24/2014 - E̶a̶r̶l̶y̶ ̶A̶c̶c̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶(̶?̶) Preorders!

Just posted a KS update about preorders vs. early access. Thanks for the feedback earlier - I feel much better about this option.

If you know anyone who wants to support us you can send them to the main site, or you can embed our Humble widget:
Code: Select all
<iframe width='550' height='264' scrolling='no' frameBorder='0' style='border:none;' src='https://www.humblebundle.com/store/product/frontiers/xqfFWtyrgio184gVD'></iframe>


I'll make an announcement post for visibility and I'll be posting to Greenlight as well. Really curious to see how this goes... *crosses fingers*

Perfect! Now I can order another copy for my wife. I told her I had back in the Kickstarter but I switched from the Double Pack to the Apprentice level so I could participate in beta. Shhh. Don't tell.

You are trying really hard to be as sneaky as possible about this preorder since I cannot find it on the humble store.

In that regards, would you encourage or discourage posting about it on other gaming forums?

We just have a widget on the main site for now. (That may change later.)

By all means, please spread the word! (Just don't be pushy or spammy or anything.)

Hoping for some more charts and numbers. : ))

Any way to send this new and interesting development to those that favorite and follow on Steam? Or too spammy? I don't think I received any indication of the new announcement (and I've had it marked as both "favorited" and "followed" since it appeared on Steam). If i weren't on the forum and had wilfully (though, admittedly lazily) "followed" the game and not gotten wind of this i'd be a bit disappointed.

It is quite possible that I'm missing something. Some setting in Steam for receiving emails on my followed games. But I'm at work so checking would be a pain if it's doable.

Since it's been greenlighted on steam, will there be a preorder option on steam?

The pre-ordering system has been announced on the Greenlight page, but I don't think there was a notification about it (I favourited and followed the page too and haven't seen anything informing me via Steam either).

That's disappointing. I announced it on the Greenlight and Concepts pages and assumed that anyone with a 'follow' or a post in a discussion topic would get some kind of notification. Steam seems to err on the side of 'don't bother people' which I can appreciate. But even without the Steam crowd being notified there's been a respectably modest trickle or preorders coming in. Those numbers may pick up once the beta is released and gameplay videos start to trickle out into the world but in the meantime they're about what I was expecting, so that's good.

Since it's been greenlighted on steam, will there be a preorder option on steam?

For now I'm just going to stick to the Humble widget, it seems to be getting the job done.
