Upcoming Star Control: Origins steam keys notice

Published on Tuesday, August 30, 2016 By Brad Wardell In Founders Starbase

I have some good news and I have some bad news.

The good news is that we are on schedule to start delivering Steam keys for testing multiplayer Super Melee this Fall.

The bad news is that Steam gives us a very limited number of keys for testing.  That means that when it comes to the multiplayer testing, we won't be able to give every Founder a Steam key this early (all Founders will get builds under NDA but not all will be Steam builds unless we can negotiate with Valve some way to give out Steam keys without having to use their early access system).

The way we are going to decide who gets keys is base don who is active here as there's no point in sending test keys to people who can't or won't be able to give us feedback.

Lastly, tomorrow's big status update is expected to have video of game play in the Founder's Vault.

Right now, Star Control is a team effort of Stardock + Mohawk + Oxide.  We might also be getting some help from Ironclad. It's a really big project.

This is under NDA as we have not officially announced the involvement of any of these teams.
