@ Malletmann117
Sorry about such a delay, It's mostly myself on the Steam Greenlight and I been neglecting it since Backerkit & Paypal are suppose to be phased out this month.

Did you email? Please ensure that you contact them through all available means; Try their kickstarter profile here; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1964463742/the-mandate ( you must hit their "contact me" on the kickstarter page. There's not a direct link to do so on Kickstarter)
Or try to mail to: contact@perihelioninteractive.com at their company website and their game website contact@mandategame.com.


Usually they check twice a month or so, currently it seems most community staff is either busy or on holiday.

I preordered this game on Backerkit, and haven't heard anything from anyone since. Now Backerkit doesn't recognize the email I registered with. Please get in touch with me as soon as possible.

I hereby demand that you invent time travel so that you can develop your game faster. :-) Keep up the good work, guys, can't wait to try this out.
St.Akardi May 6 @ 10:43am 
The Final closing date for design pre-orders is May 10th. Pre-orders during this time will be limited to 75 dollar level.
St.Akardi Feb 8 @ 9:40am 
Also the Paypal store is currently rumored to close at 31st March 2015, Since that's when they promised to start openning up the Characters and Design sheets tiers.
St.Akardi Feb 8 @ 9:37am 
@ Currently no, Here's the timeline
Feature Alpha: Q3 2015 (early) July to the end of September
Feature Beta: Q3 2015 (late) July to the end of September, Same year
Content Beta: Q4 2015 October to the end of December
Launch: Q1 2016 January to the end of March

Is closed Alpha and Beta happening now?
St.Akardi Feb 4 @ 2:59pm 
@ Raganar, You're welcome, However you can take part into closed Alpha, Beta stages if you're backer with the specific tier reward. The paypal store for the Mandate is going to remain open until said otherwise. However the Steam early access is not going be done, At least that's intent.
Ragnar Yager Feb 4 @ 7:26am 
I can live without early access, and its better that way. I want to play it in a final version where i dont have to restart playing after every update, cause of savegame corruption (like Wasteland2) thx for the answer!
St.Akardi Feb 4 @ 3:21am 
@ Ragnar, Currently no. Since most commmunications from the Developers incline to not have early access open until late beta or not at all since early access is to strainning on both the developer's pressue to finish and users that want a complete game.
Ragnar Yager Jan 22 @ 8:08am 
is there any real releasedate exept 1st quater 2015? Or will it early access?
SoulZum Jan 16 @ 10:38pm

Love it, the whole concept! This game looks wicked and I've been awaiting it's painfully long development eagerly. If this is anything like what you have been telling the ocmmunity, this is my dream game. I've had too many bad experiences with alph/beta access, thanks to Steam (X Rebirth was the final straw for pre-order), but you guys seem legit and have kept in full communication with your base above and beyond expectation. I am seriously considering the beta. I have high hopes this German comany you signed on will help you polish this into a masterful game for the classics shelf that I will never tire of.
Keep up the awesome work, guys and gals!
Yggdrasil Jan 1 @ 2:46am 
The devs send regular updates to the backers. They signed a deal with a major German game company, so the infusion of cash will see them through this. They did delay the game by a year for full completion, but tthe game is going to rock. I usually have little interest in alpha and beta access, but I'm on for this one.
Modoka Dec 28, 2014 @ 4:29pm 
Nice to hear it isnt Dead!
Cause since their last update here its been a while....
Looked good and seems to have great potential,
so i hope they will use it!

Kickstarter backers get Alpha and Beta access. Only the full game will be released to Steam.
paulo Nov 13, 2014 @ 11:24am 
When The Mandate will enter in Early Access? I want to play this game ASAP. :(
GamerWolfOps Nov 13, 2014 @ 2:53am 
I am liking the updates, inculding the way ships look now.
St.Akardi Oct 16, 2014 @ 8:46pm 
It's current Alpha stage is due to release this December, However this may change. But I'll inform everyone via Greenlight if they haven't got around to notify.

Here's the current plan;http://ships.mandategame.com/images/20131015_KS_dev_budget.png
the.silver.skull Oct 11, 2014 @ 4:13am 
Do we have any info on how long till this jewel will be released ?

I backed them on KS a long while back but kinda lost track of the project, most of the
KS updates seem to just be full of concept drawings and stuff , so i stopped paying them much
heed.
St.Akardi Oct 2, 2014 @ 1:28pm 
@ Hansila
They're still accept pre-orders for the game, You'll just miss out on th comestic medals from the kickstarter. They're process orders from the Backerkit here and Paypal. And they import new backers from paypal twice a month, Just send a email and they usually tell you when that happens.

Looks amazing! I can't wait for this one....Please include a missile camera option where you can ride your launched weapons in camera view straight into the enemy ships....Awsome!
hansila Sep 6, 2014 @ 4:49pm

Yggdrasil Aug 27, 2014 @ 5:35pm 
I contacted them through their Facebook page and they were already in the process of updating their list of supporters who preordered. I checked today and I'm on! :)
borgboy0 Aug 26, 2014 @ 12:24pm 
@rolfskalder if you send them an email they respond with in a couple hours, apparently the last time they imported was around the 10th and they are importing today or tomorrow
borgboy0 Aug 26, 2014 @ 10:12am 
@rolfskalder i'm having the same thing happen to me, tho its only been 9 days here

going on two weeks now since I preordered through paypal and other than a digital receipt from paypal, no acknowledgement from the game company that I've preordered the game, no contact information to allow me to access the game website's forums, nothing. The game looks great, but if I don't hear from them in another week, I'm going to seek to get my money back. When someone pays to be a backer, you'd think the company would be quick to acknowledge this. The only other time I've had to wait was a very small dev team and I waited 24 hours before they sent an acknowledgement. Two weeks is not a good sign :(

Hey, Here's a direct link to a PDF file of the Fan Compedium that is recently update since the recent update of the Mandate.

@ Vega,
Current the Specs that Devs are going for is this:
Just to clarify since we got a few messages about this: Our min spec for The Mandate is actually rather conservative but we focus on optimization from the start as it can affect both art direction and game design. While we do not have final specs, on the hardware side we are aiming for the following (recommended spec will be higher): Min spec (not final) - CPU: dual core 2.4 GHz or higher - GPU: Intel HD3000/4000, AMD/ATI 3850, nVidia 8600 GT - System RAM: 3 GB - Shader model: 3.0 or higher (DX9.0c+ on Windows) Basically if you have a decent gaming PC that is 5-6 years old or a laptop with integrated graphics (from Intel) that is 2-3 years old, or a laptop with discrete graphics (from nVidia / AMD) that is 3-4 years old, then you should be ok.

just read the cargo ship update, and let's just say i never wanted something this badly before \o/ having interactivity with the war time economy, beyond simple sliders to make your populous happy is always super welcome in this day and age in what seems to be the dumbing down or complete removal of activities such as this.
STINKFIST Aug 16, 2014 @ 9:03am 
Your already screwing up with the product branding. THE MANDATE? Makes me think i'm playing a game about congress. or lawyers. How about Reapers Wind or Space Sea Wench. Its about a crew so...name the game after the ship the crew is in duh. You give examples of sci-fi like FireFly. Named after a ship.
vega.px Aug 13, 2014 @ 2:30pm 
any thoughs about the system requirements of this game?

Yggdrasil Aug 9, 2014 @ 4:29pm 
I'm preordering this one to get in on the beta. It looks like a cross between Mass Effect and XCOM. The space battles look great. I like the tactical aspects of both the space and ship boarding combat. I also like the Star Trek elements of traveling around the galaxy and violating the prime directive at every turn ;) Hope there's diplomacy as well.
Yggdrasil Aug 9, 2014 @ 4:25pm 
Just checked out their main website ;) I can see they've been very busy and are wrapping up what looks to be a well-derserved August vacation. Oh yes, take my money!
Mr Furious Aug 8, 2014 @ 1:38pm 
I had thought my excitement for this game would've waned since the kickstarter campaign. Nope. I'm more excited for beta access in January than I am Christmas in December.
St.Akardi Aug 7, 2014 @ 8:45am 
@ Rolf
I'll mention it to them. I should really start a converstation with them.
Yggdrasil Aug 4, 2014 @ 3:33am 
Glad to see from the posts that this is not dead. Wish the devs would check in once in a year or so.
St.Akardi Jul 17, 2014 @ 2:56pm 
@ Ryan
Currently to resgister on the website you must have a preorder of the game. Which you could get it from their store http://www.mandategame.com/store. You can either use Backerkit (an app used to moderate your Kickstarter backers and later supporters.) Or use Paypal to preorder. However using Paypal, Devs have to import PayPal backers twice per month into BackerKit to provide the Ditgial keys and goodies that you may select from your preo-order tier.
Ryan Jul 13, 2014 @ 11:12am 
how to register on there website? I can't find any register button or page!
Alhazred Jul 13, 2014 @ 9:55am 
seriously can't wait. been folowing since kickstarter. ughhhh, this is gonna be amazingggg!!!
mwawa Jul 9, 2014 @ 11:54pm 
Can't wait
King Kornholio Jul 8, 2014 @ 12:12pm 
The scale of this blows my mind. I have always wanted a game like this- or at least similar. The fact that you are building this gives hope to the whole genre's future. I want to be able to completely cutomize everything from the cut of my uniform to the build of my ship, to the name and species of my and enemy factions. I want to design the crew as well as the captain. I want to fight in space, then board and pillage. I want it all. Do I expect it all from you? Nope. But it looks like you have a bigger chunk of the space opera in your game than most. This is a huge step in the right direction! Can't wait.
