So once every few days or even week, depending how slow or fast questions are being answered around the Internet by the devs. We will be summarizing some of these questions and answers in one place. If you have anything you might of heard from another source then please feel free to share it with us!
Q: Will your game be DRM-free?
A: We are planning to release on Steam once we got greenlit (fingers crossed!). We will then use the usual Steam licensing.
Q: How is the craftingsystem going to work?
A: regarding crafting system: it will be similar to the machine crafting system implemented in Space Engineers
Q: Is there a character creation, customisation 2-Character upgrade like stamina speed strenght hungry sleep 3-Can we hire companions (with skills), a crew for our ship
A: (i) yes, we plan to have a character customization system (but perhaps not in the first Alpha build). (ii) In the first Alpha build, there will be health, food and oxygen. Later on, we plan to have additional features. (iii) In the moment, we do not plan to have companions
Q: A question, guys, if I may? For the double and triple packs, do I understand correctly that it's 2 or 3 full copies from alpha on, at those tiers?
A: Yes, you will get 2 or 3 Alpha versions and each Alpha includes all further updates (Beta, finished game).
Q: Question as well. In multiplayer, do both players have to be on the same planet or in the same solar system at the same time?
A: No. Players do not have to be on the same planet or in the same solar system at the same time in Multiplayer
Q: Will you be offering a DRM free standalone (non steam options - there are plenty who will not use Steam at all.) for backers at all?
A: in the moment, we are focusing on Steam. That means you will need the Steam client to run the game.
Q: Linux and Mac version ??
A: In the beginning, we are focusing on releasing the game on Windows PC (at least the alpha version) and the dedicated servers for Linux. Given that we develop on Unity 3d – a cross-platform game creation system which allows to publish to over 10 platforms (Mac, Linux, PlayStation, Xbox etc.) – we don’t exclude the possibility that in the future the game will be available on other platforms as well.
