I received GAR as a freebie, and I have to say that this is one fun little game. I will be watching for it to finally hit the Steam store, preferably with a 4-pack. I'm really looking forward to the new UI and getting in on some multiplayer action.

@strat, no it just hasn't been released yet.

This game was deleted from steam?
Astral Projection  [author] Mar 7 @ 10:33am 
Oh nope. AFAIK you have the game forever. ;)

Ahhh ok, nice! I was worried that since you were greenlit on Steam that the existing version might be removed or something. Thanks!
Astral Projection  [author] Mar 6 @ 7:40pm 
@necro, redid the UI completely. Work in progress, pending some more cosmetic tweaks. WIll release the game fully when we ensure this version is relatively bug free.

What is this sketchy 1mb update to GAR? Now called "Galactic Arms Race (Test)".. will this disable the game??...
Ash Blake Feb 25 @ 6:17pm 
Gah, I am losing my patience! (Not to be an asshole, but I tend to be that way over things I am excited about).
Cycopunk Feb 21 @ 7:30pm 
@Astral Projection, no clue but we are up and running now. Thanks again.
Astral Projection  [author] Feb 21 @ 7:24pm 
@Cycopunk. nice. It usually installs with GAR through steam. Not sure why it didn't. Or perhaps it was accdientally uninstalled.
Cycopunk Feb 20 @ 7:20pm 
@Astral Projection, thanks for getting me pointed in the right direction. I didn't have Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable installed. Once that was installed, the game started up just fine.
Astral Projection  [author] Feb 20 @ 5:00pm 
@cycopunk, hmm weird. Do you have XNA installed? It should install automatically.
Cycopunk Feb 18 @ 9:13pm 
I own this game, but I have no clue how I got it. Thing is, I can't get it to run. I try to start it, I get the swirling circle like it's loading and then nothing. I'm not sure what the deal is.

I am really hoping that there will be a lot of people on MP. You can only go so far in SP. I have the server software downloaded and completely set up with port forwading and all. Gonna run it once MP gets some serious traffic.

@Plaid, hehe no problem ;)
Plaid Jan 30 @ 6:47am 
Anyway, I only sound like a dick because I'm looking forward to the release ;D

It's been so long.
Plaid Jan 30 @ 6:47am 
No offense, but you could simply have posted those two lines of text in an Announcement instead of in the comments.

"We are working hard still - shooting for the end of Feb."

done.
Ash Blake Jan 21 @ 1:21pm 
I understand you are working hard, I am very excited about the release. It was just I started to have my doubts when there were no updates as to what was going on. Keep up the good work!

How much will it cost on steam?
Astral Projection  [author] Jan 20 @ 5:44pm 
@zogilia we are working hard still ;)
Ash Blake Jan 13 @ 3:26pm 
You should post an announcment with some updates about the current status of this project instead of leaving your current/potential customers in a galaxy far far away......

@Omeganix, shooting for end of Feb

Нахрена мне извещения об этом приходят?

This game is great! Congratulations!
Ciunay_Ragathol Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:52pm 
Ah, would be nice if you add "Charged Shots". Hold button to charge for x seconds, and release a big shot :-)
Ciunay_Ragathol Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:50pm 
Oh, i'm happy to hear that. I was intentioned to suggest a new UI. Good choice. While the game is good, the UI was pretty amateurish.
Astral Projection  [author] Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:47pm 
@Ciunay, put up a new announcement due to your question. ;)
Astral Projection  [author] Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:31pm 
@Ciunay, currently re-doing the UI entirely. Will release on Steam when that's done. After that we plan to change over to a voxel engine and release a level editor where players can design their own galaxies, systems, ships and bases.
Ciunay_Ragathol Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:06pm 
I upvoted this game many months ago, and fortunately i'm already playing it on Steam, but when it gets released? Are you intentioned to add some patch or what? You seem totally inactive. The game is fun and i'd like to see it expanded and with a good community.

Как всякая херь попадает в список игр за которые я проголосовал?
ameer.saadat99 Sep 17, 2013 @ 2:24am 
can we at least have a release date somewhere? I really can't wait.
Astral Projection  [author] Sep 15, 2013 @ 6:10pm 
@ameer, game dev time is longer than standard time.
ameer.saadat99 Sep 13, 2013 @ 10:10pm 
It says the release date is q1 2013, why is it still in dev? :'(
Astral Projection  [author] Sep 12, 2013 @ 6:14pm 
@Dezir, yes. Check the site: http://galacticarmsrace.blogspot.com/

In the middle of a complete UI overhaul right now before release.

@governorm, sorry you didn't like it.

This game sucks!
RyzeAbove Sep 6, 2013 @ 2:37am 
by the way, have you made any updates recently ?
RyzeAbove Sep 6, 2013 @ 2:37am 
Nice game, reminds me of Chicken Invaders, though multiplayer servers with one map instead of the whole galaxy wouldn't hurt.

Astral Projection  [author] Sep 2, 2013 @ 6:24pm 
@LaKriz, sorry you didn't enjoy it. No sweat, give it a try again after release because we are making some nice upgrades. ;)
LaKriz Sep 2, 2013 @ 2:40am 
I have this game on Desura and must say it gets old very, very fast.
Astral Projection  [author] Sep 1, 2013 @ 12:34pm 
Cool so the game is back on your library? Good to know. ;)
