Why didn't you guys send a Kickstarter update saying that backers have Steam keys?
I just googled Drift Stage for the first time in months, and I found out via the Steam forum here that the Steam Keys were imminently coming out today. But the post was on June 18th. My last emailed update was in April.

Come on, guys. I saw the "can you please talk to your backers" topic, and that topic and this is making me upset as a backer. The lack of communication is awful.

If you backed it years ago, look on Humble Bundle. It's in the same area as the pre-Steam beta downloads and the soundtrack downloads. Oh yeah, if you backed with the digital download soundtrack tier, you can find a nice 8 or so track soundtrack on there. For a long time, it was my favorite part of the whole thing. Myrone really delivered on the music. In the past, I had a conversation with Myrone about the status of Drift Stage, and he was a class act.

Yes, if you backed the kickstarter campaign years ago. You do get an early access-caliber game via Steam. In a lot of ways it's a lot like the (awesome for what it was) pre-alpha that was free for everyone to download before the Kickstarter began. There are three tracks, multiple cars, a bit more music, a multiplayer option (with local splitscreen whicn I haven't tried yet), and some other odds and ends. It's nice, but I wish I could have known about this months ago. I spent a bunch of time today just turning laps because it feels so good like the pre-alpha years ago, but the game's not good for much more than that in its current state. There is an online multiplayer option, but I didn't find people playing. I bet if there was a proper update broadcasted there would have been loads of people falling over themselves to test the game.

It's actually a pretty good game. The level of communication has been disheartening, however. I'm afraid it may be reflective of the team's dedication to the project, as seen in the other topic. There are good people involved, but it's the team that counts.
