Any updates regarding the ETA?
Booface Feb 1 @ 6:57am 
good to hear, cant wait
Nyphur  [author] Feb 1 @ 2:31am 
@ttavoc: Turns out the Steam delay is my fault as I had not set prices in the back-end, so now we're just waiting for Valve to approve our prices and I think then we can push the button! I can confirm that we have a dev version running through Steam and it all works perfectly. I can't wait to get this launched and get some feedback and bug report threads going here on Steam in addition to our forum!
ttavoc Jan 31 @ 2:19pm 
To be honest: That is annoying. I dont blame the devs of this game. I blame steam. 6 days for an approval process? Without any informations for the devs or customers waiting? Poor. Very poor.
Booface Jan 30 @ 5:08pm 
cant wait, ill buy soon as steam puts it up
ttavoc Jan 29 @ 2:07pm 
Come on Valve! More Steam to the engines. The emperor waits to be amused!
mseamans81 Jan 28 @ 12:14pm 
congrats guys, I've been watching this game for over a year now, I can't way to play this!
Tinabeans  [author] Jan 28 @ 3:22am 
Yeah guys, just waiting for approval! :D Our Kickstarter backers are already playing, and so far seem quite happy with the alpha build. I'll comment here as soon as Predestination becomes available here.
ttavoc Jan 27 @ 12:58pm 
Maybe they wait for informations from Steam by themself? Tinabeans already mentioned that only news she have are that they are waiting for approval.
Arlas Jan 27 @ 10:41am 
No word yet?
Arlas Jan 26 @ 4:11pm 
Waiting for the predestination steam page...
ttavoc Jan 26 @ 11:08am 
Something new about release? :)
I loved you guys back in comic con belfast. Me and my brother cant wait too see more
Tinabeans  [author] Jan 25 @ 10:33am 
I can't even give you a time for when the EA will go live as it needs approval first. It may nt go up until the morning! :(
ttavoc Jan 25 @ 10:20am 
And I am hard at refreshing as you type :D I am curious if I will made it to be the first customer on steam :D
Tinabeans  [author] Jan 25 @ 10:16am 
We're hard at work as I type! :D
ttavoc Jan 25 @ 6:44am 
We have Sunday and I am counting the minutes until release of the prerelease :D

From all the Kickstarter messages, I'd say you could easily see Predestination hit Steam within the first couple of months of the new year. I've been in on all of the Beta events thus far, and have been very impressed.

So here's to Brain & Nerd putting the finishing touches on things, and giving us a great way to start the new year! :P
Bryon Jones (In the void) Dec 23, 2014 @ 7:41am 
I hope this game is still going.
Meklon Dec 22, 2014 @ 12:27am 
We still kicking, or has Predestination met an untimely fate?
RedGeneral Nov 27, 2014 @ 1:00pm 
Whats the projected release date? A guesstimate shall be sufficient.
Tinabeans  [author] Nov 12, 2014 @ 12:25pm 
I'm still kicking around, @negatus! :D
negatus Oct 17, 2014 @ 3:49pm 
What happened to Tinabeans?
Metronomicon Sep 27, 2014 @ 11:52pm 
very cool thank you.
Nyphur  [author] Sep 27, 2014 @ 3:09pm 
@feniks - Thanks for the heads up, I've answered that question now.

[b@Namor[/b] - There will be planetary leaders that you can put in charge of planets to gain bonuses to the planet. They act kind of like strategic hero units in that you assign them to a particular planet and they could be killed if the planet is bombed. We also have similar Ship Captains for ships. The game will be moddable, though we haven't finalised exactly how moddable it will be on release. We are planning to work closely with modders to add more moddable features after release, however.
Metronomicon Sep 26, 2014 @ 11:48pm 
I was talking about "hero" units. that were not ships
Metronomicon Sep 26, 2014 @ 11:39pm 
Looks cool. Can't wait.

Will there be metahuman units if not will we be able to mod the game to add those kinds of units. Yeah am into that sorry for the space purists.
feniks Sep 26, 2014 @ 1:17am 
@Nyphur, if you have time can you check the comment on the second kickstarter campaign?
It's regarding to the game on steam.
Nyphur  [author] Sep 7, 2014 @ 3:09pm 
@Tyler - Yep, the pre-order on the site is still up and it's fine to pre-order there. We'll be rolling out the Steam Early Access version in stages once it's ready, starting with our Beta Kickstarter backers and then the standard pre-orders once we know there are no problems.
tylerchapman33 Sep 7, 2014 @ 2:58pm 
thanks for the update cant wait guys is it still good to pre order on your site or XD
Nyphur  [author] Sep 7, 2014 @ 2:25pm 
@ergie - Thanks for the pre-order! We've made a ton of progress so far and are working on getting on Steam for Early Access, and we really appreciate your support!

Lacamas - We've never promised a release date for Predestination as game development isn't an exact science. The dates we post are estimates based on how far along development is and how long we think it should take to complete remaining core features. We're still aiming for steam early access release this month but there are some pretty important features we want to finish first, like a full planetary colonisation AI, the final diplomacy system, and a galaxy AI that colonises planets and builds fleets. A full release on or before Christmas seems likely, but as always we'll keep fans up to date via the blog and newsletter.
ergie Sep 3, 2014 @ 9:16am 
Well, I've just preordered. Damn I didn't know of predestination before. I hope this project can complete. The game looks awesome, gorgeous anda fair and better successor of our beloved MOO2!!! Best luck from Spain
Lacamas Aug 30, 2014 @ 4:58pm 
Well it is now 6 months since the promised release of the game to kickstarter backers. So is the game still on track for a christmas release?
tylerchapman33 Aug 7, 2014 @ 12:14am 
Awesome my moneys ready please bring this to steam early accsess maybe in september hint hint ;) anyways this seeems like it could be a mater of orion sucsessor !
Nyphur  [author] Jul 19, 2014 @ 12:21pm 
Lacamas, Nimrodt & dannylavery8 - There's a private closed beta going on right now with our Kickstarter/Paypal beta backers. We've released three playable beta stages to them so far and in the next few days we'll be releasing the latest version of that for playtesting.

For everyone else, we'll have an Early Access version on Steam or via direct download within the next few months. We want to release Early Access as soon as possible but obviously have to ensure that the game is sufficiently far along in development, so our current goal is to get the core gameplay feature-complete as quickly as possible, and the estimate on that is currently around 2 months.
Lacamas Jul 18, 2014 @ 12:40am 
So from the looks of the last Dev update will this game be ready for a christmas release to those of us who backed the game thru kickstarter. I have no prob with waiting to ensure the game works properly, but give us something other than promises.
Nimrodt Jul 11, 2014 @ 5:12pm 
When will this finaly be obtainable via Steam???
??
?
T.Dizzle Jun 24, 2014 @ 10:00pm 
Looks interesting
dannylavery8 Jun 8, 2014 @ 8:08am 
is there a demo out yet?
Nyphur  [author] Jun 5, 2014 @ 11:26pm 
@Lacamas - Thanks for the feedback! With only one programmer and a tiny budget, we often have to juggle things like development and public relations. We've struck a balance that our backers seem happy with, which is one comprehensive development update each month since the Kickstarter. The latest Dev Update was on May 3rd with the launch of the Galaxy beta, and this month's Dev Update will be coming out in the next few days as we're getting ready for Comic Con this weekend.

It's encouraging to see that people are anxious to get their hands on the game, but our number 1 committment has always been to make Predestination the best 4X game possible with what we've got, hopefully a real contender for the Master of Orion throne. We have to take the time to get supporters' feedback to help guide development, and to iterate on the core gameplay until it feels right. The next Dev Update includes details of overhauls to the planetary gameplay based on feedback, and more.
Nyphur  [author] Jun 5, 2014 @ 8:44pm 
@junk555 - Our previous schedule didn't work out to plan, but we were able to deploy the Galaxy beta at the start of May. Feedback from that test indicated that we need to spend some additional development time on the core planet gameplay before tackling the remaining galaxy features that need to be done before Early Access. We've also got some tax documents to get in order before we can get listed on Steam as we're in the UK and Valve is in the US. I unfortunately can't pin down a date for Early Access, but we're working hard toward that goal and will have our monthly update out soon with more information.

@stackero - Thanks very much for the vote of confidence! Right now our goal with the planetary combat is to have a strategic bombing system where you can demolish enemy roads and infrastructure, then drop troops to take over cities. Strategic ground combat is a much-requested feature that we're definitely going to look at for an expansion if the game does well at launch!
Lacamas Jun 1, 2014 @ 12:23pm 
The only problem i have with this game is the almost complete lack of updates from the developers. The game website the last update was in april. There is a note from the game author in this forumn on may 22nd saying they are having some issues, but no real update. Come on over 2000 people help you thru kickstarter. We deserve something better than we are having issues. Let us know what is going on.
stackero May 31, 2014 @ 7:45pm 
Liking what I see so far. The combination of indepth planet colonization with Space combat and exploration is awesome. Good luck, few have tried with limited success, especially if you include actual planetary land invasions in some form. Hint Hint.
junk555 May 31, 2014 @ 2:35pm 
@Nyphur - What's the expected date for the Early Access? The February update on your website states it should be about wrapped up in May, and it's the end of May now. Not looking to hold your feet to the fire, but an updated schedule would be nice.
