Why won't they just release the public alpha  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
Well a public alpha, using the current format, would mean whoever enters would get a steam key for the game.

Now, what do you think the problem would be if the game released and most people already had keys for it?


The Answer: Not many people would buy it, most of them would probably already own keys.

kerbal space program was really boring when it was first released (all you could do was launch rockets, you couldn't get in orbit easily) and look how popular it is now!

As a game developer, you presumably understand that delivery times are estimates only unless corporate is breathing down your neck. Might I ask which studio you're with, as a matter of personal curiosity?

I found a solution :
GA relase paid (buggy) open Alpha; then update it. And they only release it on US2 website. Next to the "buy" button, GA would put a red message saying :" WARNING : This is a very buggy version, buy at your own risks !".
What do you think ? Players would be warned its not imperatively a great game for now but it will become one ! And this solution remove the waiting ! (And have you EVER found a game without bugs ?)

I think it's a good idea, everybody (who wants) report bugs, they will do it. But there are many SERIOUS bugs, and maybe even this will not run on your computer.

But...BUT....WHAT ARE THOSES BUG ? (And there is the red sentence warning players.) Not run on my computer ? If it can run on the computer of someone on this forum (I highly doubt everybody have a strong computer), it can run on mine.

it means that they are big bugs....

You will destroy the whole universe, your computer will explode. Normally, the planet will turn into a star. Nothing buggy.

wat have you said. If the computer exploded, why can alpha tester test ? Give me a CLEAR example. (And again there would be the red sentence next to the "buy" button).

If half the game was bugs than it's not even a game anymore! If everyone was an Alpha Tester, GA would drown in bug reports! You say 8YO is offensive but you do not consider that this whole thread is an insult on GA's logic and planning! They know what they are doing, if you didn't get the Alpha there is no reason to start complaining and then tell GA to release it now. I'm sure you wouldn't have made this thread if you were an Alpha tester. This is what I mean by 8YO, they don't think about the logic of stuff and then demand something to be released immediately.


If you didn't know, US2 is an education program. If they released it now it would be saying that the universe works by being filled with bugs.

Okay okay (but having my dream (litteraly) ruined is not good (yes i dream (litteraly) of US2). But give me a clear example of a bug please. This is annoying to heard BUG BUG BUG but having NO clear example.
I also just hope GA wont push back US2 like they did in 2013. YES patience is a virtue. But everything has limits.

A popular bug is the gravity bug.

The gravity multiplier is set to zero, but there is an error when trying to open the menu to change that. 

There are also some bugs with the supernovas, like spawning infinite chains of gaseous remnants, hence spamming the screen with entity labels.

Also, I think bong said some time ago that the mirrors on the Mirror Pyramid (!?😱😆) don't work, they're just blurry.

Also multiple bugs with the trails when zooming in on gas giants.

And even more bugs with seeing through planets.

Anyway, having your dream ruined is no reason to start whining about it.
I've been dissapoineted way too many times in my life, and I'm fine right now.

Plus, think about it, your better off than the Palestinians. Poor guys, I saw a video clip of half-dead babies vomiting their organs, and fathers having to witness the deaths of their own, extremely young children.

Before looking at what you don't have, try to look at what you DO have. A loving family, a home, a bed, water, food, an internet-connecting device, maybe a pet, etc. (at least I HOPE you have these things 😨)

You obviously have not been a game developer for very long then. As a limited number of employees working on a game is bound to have setbacks. And do not be so harsh! Dan and the team have made an amazing game!  And it appears that you are just bashing the game and developers because you missed the alpha signup. And now you cannot play a game you've been waiting for. I felt the same way you did... back when I was 13 years old. Now much older, and having developed a game or two, I see that they are actually doing an outstanding job at creating this simulator.

I agree. Most of the new threads asking this sort of thing are being made by people who didn't gat into the Alpha team, and I am more than certain that they wouldn't have made this thread if they did. 

Gammaray, I feel this is very impatient with you. I waited for more than three years for the release and I finally got to be an Alpha tester. If you were only waiting since 2013, you've obviously never made an extreme quality game.

A true game "developer" would've wait for a game that is currently on it's alpha stage considering how much effort and time they're putting into it.

So just wait and see the improvements.

Now, Now, let's not go off making assumptions. He's probably worked in a larger group on an easier-to-make game, making it have a fast release. Though, it would be nice to have some evidence. What game did you work on?

There are 100 Alpha testers and a little over 450 rejects. Please read before making useless threads like this (It was said in the email that Giant Army sent you.) And Please take this thread down because it might offend people who didn't get accepted.
