Any Update about progress on the alpha?
its ded


Nah, if you had donated you would have had access to the Donator board where more information is posted ;)

stop bullshiting people around there are no secret "information" in the donation fourm, The game has noting to show thats why there isnt a gameplay video and not a single proper footage of the actual game

Because it's not ready yet?

Just have patience, it'll be out there soon. The current Alpha testers and the developers are currently working on getting a game to a state where they'll be ready to start the proper "PR-campaign" where we'll get trailers and such. You just need to have patience, and if you badly want to your hands on an early version of the game, donate for the Alpha, simple as that.

people says to be patience since 2012, its been 4 years, Interesting that they release a alpha and the guys that played the alpha had to sign an agreement that they cant share their thoughts or upload gameplay from the game.. look at war of rights, It started in much worst conditions than fse and look at their game, They upload a gameplay footage every week, Fse couldnt show us a single video so far, And even if they release some sort of gameplay to show us, I bet finishing the game will take at least 2 years minimum

Seems you know very little of game development. Developers get people to sign these agreements to prevent others from taking their ideas. All companies do it. For example the very recent battlefield one has it for those who were invited to play the game. You wanna play then pay for the alpha

Yes, you can believe that it is to prevent stealing ideas. On the other side NDAs for BF1 Event(p.e.) where for an short amount of time and why? Because all invited guests (Gametester, reporter,etc.) should have the SAME time to create good content and good news, so on. Otherwise magazines just want to publish as fast as possible and not as qualitativ as possible and that is a good reason.

So when will we see a new developers blog? Surely after 6 months of Alpha there is something new to be presented? Or some information on what's going on?

Since when are developer blogs posted in the donator board? :P

My point is that there should be an update for those who didn't donate.

Indeed, This lack of info is making me want this game less and less.

Ah well FSE has been known for this sort of PR, which is a shame because there indeed is some behind the scenes stuff that has been revealed to backers.

I am saying there are small updates on the donator board. Don't complain about having nothing to look at if you don't donate. They have no obligation to show you anything. It's still in alpha which isn't usually the time when a lot of PR happens. The real marketing begins in the beta when the product has a more significant resemblance of what the finished game will look like. Consider yourself lucky that we get Deb blogs in the first place since a lot of companies don't have them at all. FSE is a very small team and contribute a lot of their time to development and they don't have much time to post this kind of thing often. Give them time.

Firstly, I never complained. I simply asked a question with a reasoning why I answer the question in the first place. There's quite a difference there.
In matter of fact, I did donate. And therefore I can see those previews once in a while. But I'm not talking for myself here, I'm asking the question for the wider range of people that (again) did not donate. As I am CR, I could consider that my job.

Secondly, I would like to quote the head developer. Saying.
Quote
"Starting today, there will be a weekly dev blog that will keep you up to date with the production of the game."
Now, we all could expect that something like that is rather unrealistic. And so everyone can understand that it takes a bit longer when claims like that have been made. However tho, when there's 6 months between a blog. Then surely some questions may be raised about a new blog. Even considering it's in Alpha, no one is asking for some huge feature preview. I'm sure that enough people would be satisfied with a word on what's going on behind the screens. Considering right now, to someone who hasn't donated yet. It looks pretty dead.

But either way it was just a simple question directed to FSE.

When I mention the complaining I'm referring to the others who posted after you.
