Dex - Pre-Alpha Wrap-up & Indievelopment
Dreadlocks has a new post-funding update for DEX with information about their experience at EGX Rezzed, Indievelopment, and a new Pre-Alpha Wrap-up.
Dex Pre-Alpha Results
Since our pre-alpha launch to Early Access backers, we’ve received numerous bug reports and comments on the game. These have dovetailed nicely with our showcase experiences at the events, where we also took notes while observing people play Dex, and listened to their comments.
Most of the reported issues are already fixed as of this writing and we’ve also added some new functionality (such as improved inventory and trade systems, among others) and lots of performance tweaks (to allow for smoother gameplay with integrated graphics cards, such as Intel HD 3000/4000). All of these changes will be seen in the next Early Access game build, which we aim to release in May. We will inform you about the release of that build here as well as on the Early Access forum.
We’d like to thank everyone who has already participated in Early Access; your comments and feedback really help us to fine-tune the game!
Important: If you have not yet received an Early Access invitation from us (and you are eligible for it), it may have ended up in your spam folder. If you don’t find it there, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Early Access/Pre-Order Requests
Since the launch of Pre-Alpha Dex, we’ve received numerous requests about the possibility of pre-ordering the game and/or upgrading original Kickstarter pledges to higher ones (to be eligible for Early Access). We plan to open a shop (both for original backers to upgrade pledges and for new backers to pre-order). Once ready, we will inform you about it here.
As mentioned above, thanks to both events as well as our Pre-Alpha access, we’ve scored a number of media previews, a selection of which we present below!
