Oh man, I so wish I’d backed this at a high enough level for beta access. I’m so jealous!

Very much looking forward to the full release though :D

Dude! The original Dune game was my intro to RTS, and is my all time favourite game :D

Same here, oh so many moons ago !

Totally immersive at that time, albeit have not played it for years. then went onto the entire C&C collections inc Tiberium etc. But none of them really matched Dune 2000 in terms of gameplay, it was just so so so addictive

RTS are deffo the best games to get into !

Doesn’t this give you instant access to the alpha (and then beta when available): https://store.uberent.com/Store/PreOrder?titleId=4

I’m keen to give it a go shortly, just need more free time!

Yes indeedy! I did that a couple weeks ago (even released a couple mods). Alpha was one game, beta is proving to be another. Theres a huge influx of new players & new skill levels, new drama. But beta is worth buying, since its just out today.

Dune 2000. Favorite RTS game next to Total Annihilation. So awesome.

There’s also Castle Story & Stonehearth to keep an eye on. Timber & Stone.

If you’re a Windows user, theres a very interesting city sim coming out: http://www.shiningrocksoftware.com/

Oh. And of course War for the Overworld. http://store.steampowered.com/app/230190

This game looks awesome, can’t wait for the release in december!

We should set up our own Envato server.

I haven’t read a ton about PA yet, but I assume there are multiplayer factions? If so, name each faction / team after an Envato marketplace XD

Ah yeah… well you still can. I think it’s a bit more than it was on Kickstarter at the time, but you can get into the beta now through Uber Entertainment’s site.

On another note… I’ve played a couple games so far (sadly enough, just against AI) and I pretty much suck lol. There’s a lot of multitasking going on.. i need to train my brain to think that way. Good stuff though, I’m liking it.

Turns out it’s the same if you already backed. It’s $60 to get into the Beta now, but if you backed at $20, you just pay another $20, which puts you to the $40 KickStarter backer level.

So… I succumbed. Downloading now :D
