I’ve been thinking it over.
I think all pledges $75 or above (“Pilgrim”) will get beta access on a monthly issue starting end of November and continuing through to April when the last polish is put on the game.
If you play it until you are sick of it you have nobody but yourself to blame. It will demonstrate continuous progress towards completion.
I have a lot to do in November to adapt everything for the new resolution and to see if we can eliminate all the serious “bugs” (not gameplay balance issues but real bugs) before the beta goes out to pledges.
These beta copies may be burned with your personalized details to detect leaks, I think I have a utility around that does this. Just warning you that the copy you get may be traceable so please don’t leak it to people who did not pledge. Taking screenshots will be okay and doing walkthroughs will be up to you.
