It is a new year and we are back to work. We hope to release the major update sometime this month and will keep you posted.
Please visit this FAQ for any questions you may have. It also has guidelines for emailing me.

We want to thank everyone for their patience in waiting for this. We are now aiming for the next major StarForge update to release in early Jan. Development has been well, but we are running behind on our earlier estimate due to us wanting to put more polish on our upcoming features.
I will be sure to make note on here when it is released. It will contain Multiplayer, Procedural Weapons, Physics Movement Overhaul, Optimization, Fort Defense, Resources, Better A.I, and so much more!
Follow our latest daily updates here (combo of our Twitter, Facebook, and Blog feeds):
We are also in the works with a gifted concept artist from Australia on the poster and exclusive desktop wallpaper perks. I’ll let everyone know when we have something to show. It should be sometime shortly after the New Year.
The T-Shirts are also in the works, and we hope to have an update in mid-late Jan. on when you can expect delivery.
All other digital perks will be enabled in your online StarForge account during 2013 as we develop them. When they are ready, you will be notified when you log into your account. I will also notify everyone on here as they develop.
Thanks again for all your support! We are super excited for the New Year and we hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a great holiday season. We will be taking the week off to spend some time with our families and will be back to work Jan 3rd.

So far 3700+ accounts have properly transferred their alpha access and perks into our system. I have emailed everyone about it from my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org
However, if you did not receive the email with instructions on how to do it, I have posted the link below:
That page gives info on how to transfer your account.
Please email me at email@example.com if you have any problems with it with the header “IGG account linking issues” and I will get back. If you already emailed me, and didn’t hear back, please email me again with that subject so I will know.
Sorry to anyone who has been waiting. We really appreciate your patience and support.
In 1-2 weeks I plan to email everyone a detailed process on how we will be delivering the perks.
We have huge news – Valve has accepted us through Steam Greenlight!
We moved from over 950th place to #16 in just over 4 and a half weeks. And then Valve Greenlight our game!
This means that we will be releasing on Steam when we are done developing StarForge over a year from now. So everyone who pledged will receive a Steam Key for all their copies of StarForge when we release on Steam in the future.
Thanks to everyone for voting and making this possible. This is great news as StarForge will release to a huge community of over 45 million + gamers when it is fully done! This kind of support will really enable us at CodeHatch to hopefully grow the company in the future, and deliver a lot more innovative gameplay even quicker.
The campaign is over at $135, 453! A huge thank you to everyone who pledged and helped make this game possible. It was an great 4 and a half weeks and an amazing experience that we will never forget. It would not have been possible without everyone spreading it through word of mouth! We are working hard, and look forward to the next year of development.
We plan to keep everyone updated weekly through our blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Forums. And we plan to release the next major build in mid-December which will include multiplayer. All of which can be found through our main site:
We have also set up a store for anyone who missed the IndieGoGo campaign to help support us and buy StarForge -
Your continued support will go towards the Stretch Goals that were not hit and help fund us the opportunity to develop them.
For everyone wondering where their alpha access is. I will be going over all the accounts and making sure everyone has full access in the next few weeks. I’ve received over 4000+ emails in the last month, and am still behind, so I apologize for anyone waiting on their game yet. So far over 3200+ people have properly been given alpha access and their perks transferred to our systems.
Everyone will also receive an email detailing their perks, if you bought a shirt you can choose the one you want and your sizing, and when we plan to ship them.
As for all the fine folks who upgraded their account by making multiple pledges, I will also be processing this in the next few weeks. So no worries if you don’t yet see your upgrade applied.
So to sum it up, in the next few weeks you will get an email detailing:
- Give you full alpha access if you did not receive it yet.
- Info on gifting your extra copies to your friends
- Choose your T-Shirt and Sizing if you bought this reward
- If you pledged a higher amount we will detail the process of naming content
- Info on when we will ship the perks both digital and physical
Thanks again to everyone. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
This has been a great campaign. And we could not have done this without you! :)
