Mmmm I don't know. How about paying for the game on ea release. Coming back to check out the progress a few yrs later, and the game no longer exists. Apparently there's a remake that you have to buy all over again. That's called a scam bro. Just a bunch of scummy scammers

What are you talking about having to buy it all over again? Anyone that originally bought the game gets an Early Access key for free.

Lol you might want to read about this sca-eeerr, game.

Edit: all jokes aside, it's a scam. They got a lot of people and now they are going for round two with a new crew or something.

in what way is the game a scam exactly? we're still working on the game regardless of having to read sh*t like this constantly

If you could go back in time to before the sale of closed alpha keys, what advice would you have given then Nik?

What would you have told him to do differently ?

To listen to my gut and to be extremely cautious of those that feel the need to insist that trust be placed in them and those that demand far too much for where they're coming from. I'd also emphasize to take care of those that don't ask for much but deserve more than what you're able to provide.

That and to probably be less naïve about human nature, to build awareness of how with strategy the balance of power can shift within an organization, for better, or for worse.

Ok.

How do you feel the dead matter project is going ?

As a producer of a product and a consumer of other video games.

As a producer, it's a complete sh*t show. As a consumer, it's worth keeping your eye on but it needs to be more fun with friends.

Are you trying to imply that vein isn't better or worse than DM because you're both using publicly available code?

I'm seriously asking as it's unclear

Nah, every project uses open source code that's publicly available. Just by using Unreal Engine you're using dozens of third party libraries by a variety of authors.

Vein is kinda neat AND it's free in alpha rn!

I'm just grateful that publicly available code that was written for Vein was used to fix our elevators (and theirs).

Yeah, my key got revoked as well. Wonder if its just because they're transitioning out of alpha or what is going on.

Seriously! I went straight to this subreddit just to check if I was the only one. What was the point of paying the some 30-40 bucks for the early backing if we weren't going to keep access to the game???! We did not pay for the privilege of early access, we paid to get that and the game that was promised!

There is either something we are missing or there is some legal boundaries breaking and rug pulling happening here.

EDIT:

I did miss something. They are addressing it.

Hadn’t thought about this game in a long time. I just received a steam notification that my key was revoked for this game despite being an early backer. So did you guys pull the plug or pull the rug out from under early backers forcing people to buy the game again to play?

We've gotten the situation addressed. Backers do not have to pay twice. You can read more here: https://www.reddit.com/r/DeadMatter/comments/1b8h031/key\_revoked\_still\_dont\_have\_the\_game\_in\_your/

It’s just the alpha. You should be able to download the steam beta. Can’t remember the steps to do so though

Correct, we've gotten the issue addressed and people should be able to easily redeem their keys now.

I backed the game, my keys not a referral.

You might want to stay up to date with your PR team they sent a message an hour after this went out saying that when they pulled the closed alpha keys they noticed that the release keys were labeled as "closed alpha keys"

What a joke, its was all a robbery, took in millions of dollars and gave people something worse than shit. Because with a big warm poopy it will function as expected you can throw it or use it to compost. While this game is only a waste of money and storage space. Your a big lie, I redeemed my Alpha key, years back.

Everyone should see this dude is going to make to where no one can play the game and then he's gonna remove it from steam. So it and him can disappear While he keeps all the money that he made nothing out of.

This wasn't true for me, redeemed my steam key in 2020 after purchasing the rad suit edition and it was still revoked from my steam account.

Haven't opened it since it transitioned to Beta. I was pleasantly surprised when I figured out how to get the key and downloaded it; the software seems much smoother and less buggy now. It seemed like an actual, playable game. Yes there were issues, but they were remarkably minor in the grand scheme of things.

Then, they revoked the keys. Hopefully that will be fixed soon, as I think the game actually might be turning around and I want to give it another chance, like No Man's Sky.

You can redeem your Early Access keys via our website. We managed to get control of the situation and I'm grateful to have /u/casadis helping with the web development side of things.

I've got a post up right here with more information: https://www.reddit.com/r/DeadMatter/comments/1b8h031/key\_revoked\_still\_dont\_have\_the\_game\_in\_your/
