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! :)

@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

@rolfskalder i'm having the same thing happen to me, tho its only been 9 days here

@ Rolfskalder
That's terrible! Please ensure that you contact them through all available means; Try their kickstarter profile here; ( 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: at their company website and their game website

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.

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 the game after the ship the crew is in duh. You give examples of sci-fi like FireFly. Named after a ship.

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.
rolfskalder Aug 9 @ 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 @ 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.

@ Rolf
I'll mention it to them. I should really start a converstation with them.
rolfskalder Aug 4 @ 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.

@ Ryan
Currently to resgister on the website you must have a preorder of the game. Which you could get it from their 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.

how to register on there website? I can't find any register button or page!
Alhazred Jul 13 @ 9:55am

Kimokeo Jul 9 @ 11:54pm 
Can't wait
King Kornholio Jul 8 @ 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.

If you want all the release info on the Mandate in one document then the Fan Compedium is here for you!
St.Akardi Jun 24 @ 3:09pm 
Hello Steam Users! Currently the Mandate has a site and backer only forums. Anyone that preorders before the release can join the community! And you can still preorder through their paypal store here with backerkit support!

Have a Great Summer!

anybody have any news on this game?
Drakken Feb 25 @ 2:22am 
Based on the videos this is one of the sexyest game on steam.
GamerWolfOps Feb 20 @ 10:15am 
Maybe its due because kickstater was hacked recently. My account was hacked and email changed.
OzWally Feb 19 @ 5:13pm
