Major updates for commercial Steam version and what about articy:access?
Hey guys,

I am currently thinking about purchasing articy:draft but I really want to have access to it via Steam and therefore would have to work out a custom deal since I am still a student and could profit of that, too.

What I read so far, is that Steam users won't get an update to Version 2 once it is available, is that right? Is this restricted to the base version or would I suffer this "penalty" too if I would purchase the commercial version?

Moreover I didn't see any information about articy:access[www.nevigo.com] and how it is distributed - I really want to give it a try and integrate it into my custom game engine to work with project files such that I don't have to parse XML files manually if possible. But can anyone explain me whether this comes with the Steam version too or do I have to contact the guys at Nevigo?

And last but not least: who should I contact about ordering such a full Steam copy (which is hopefully upgradeable to Version 2 once we hit its release)?
German note: Ich hätte auch eine digitale Immatrikulationsbescheinigung für einen evtl. Studentenrabatt :D

Thanks for your response -
Rainbow

Sei gegrüßt, Rainbow Dash,

welcome to these forums. Thanks for posting, and for your interest in articy:draft. Students which buy articy:draft outside Steam for 99€ (http://www.nevigo.com/index.php?id=66) get the most recent version (v2.0 in a couple of days) with commercial use right. They have to re-submit their student ID on a yearly basis.

The SE version for 99 bucks will stay 1.5 and doesn't have the commercial use right. So as a student, the non-Steam version is the better deal. But you said you definitely need access to it via Steam, so that won't work for you. Please contact sales@nevigo.com, maybe they can work something out.

Regarding articy:access, it's currently in closed beta, which is why you don't find anything official on the web (except snippets of documentation, like this[www.nevigo.com]). The full-blown info and documentation is part of the package that our beta partners get. We'll put an official announcement up on our relaunched website in a few days. So it won't fly under the radar for long. If you wish to join the beta, please also contact sales@nevigo.com.

Beste Grüße,
-Kai

Guten Morgen Kai,

having access to articy:draft via Steam is nice considering a possible reinstallation of your computer etc. otherwise I would have to search through you homepage (maybe login) and find my key to activate it and this kind of stuff instead of a one-click-solution for installing software via Steam (definitely a Nice-to-have feature one could think of, once you have time and more people request this).

I will contact the guys at your sales division and purchase the usual student version while trying to opt in for the articy:access beta.

Vielen Dank -
Rainbow
