Since creating the first underwater prototype in January of 2013, I’ve been obsessed with the underwater and the unknown. Actually, this obsession goes back much farther than that, which is...

    Every day until the 31st you will get access to a new prototype of the game through Humble Bundle, and on the 31st you will be able to link up a Steam copy and play either the latest weekly build, or the daily experimental build. We're hoping to get a LOT of feedback and discussion to help build an awesome game!

    Wait, this isn't the EarliEST, it's The EarliER of the early access builds.
    The underwater prototype was the earliest. :P

    New to the forums, yet ive been watching the development of the game for a while. Excited for it, but very wary of early access games since I purchased starbound.

    Yup, we hear ya, and that is why we are #1 not putting this up on Steam early access yet and #2 really trying to inform people as to what they will be getting by signing up early. Currently the version that is going up on the 31st is just a fraction of the gameplay that is planned for the game, but we have loads of stuff in the works and the pace of gameplay and content additions to the game will be pretty fast.

    We just wanted to get this into people's hands and we know there are people who love to be involved in the very early development of a game, because their feedback can really make a difference. And for us it is really helpful to get a much broader spectrum of feedback by opening it up to the public. But we really want to stress this is just for the really dedicated fans who want to support us in our endeavors, and are willing to ride (or swim) all the ups and downs that come with such an early, early....EARLY access like this.

    Been watching this a while, looks like a great concept.
    Bought today and had a play, good to see the basic physics, here's hoping that you continue to keep a reasonably realistic view on them (not too arcady!) :)

    I have successfully borked my first sub.

    Apparently too much ballast on one side is not physics-firiendly.

    Rest in piece BlockMobile, you will be missed.

    Wow, what a cashgrab! I can't believe you're selling this! The game is barely playable in its current state!!! I had five metal, I was a rich man, and then I died! JUST LIKE THAT! Had I known you were taking real money for a piece of garbage, I would have rather spend it on getting my teeth pulled out! Because that's how much I hate your game! And you! And your mothers! FILTHY THIEVES!!!

    Just preparing you for the Steam release }:D (thank god it's not Early Access!)

    No, seriously, what a lovely concept for getting funds! I love the prototype build idea! UWE are the best!

    Ordered and waiting eagerly for the 31st. I, too am very interested to see what hull ID # I get. It may spawn a hobby within the game. Instead of train or plane spotters, we may well get Cyclops spotters :)

    It appears that this has turned into the impromptu introduction thread as well. =D

    Ordered, I think I got plate no.9, and I honestly can't wait to see where this goes. I might drown, but at least i'll drown alongside a great community.

    This is the day I've been waiting for! A little less than a year back when I got the secret twitter handle I posted on some thread that I was gonna buy it the day it could be, and so I did.
    I found a treasure partially clipped inside a cliff! Also huge flippers and oxygen tanks! I even accidentally got outside the map! :D

    By the way, as a scubadiver myself I have to ask: is the heavy breathing sound that comes when you start running out of air still in the latest version? I'm just pointing out that IF it is, maybe some kind of beeping warning sounds could be a little better since realistically when you run out of air you're breathing normally and then suddenly you can't breath anymore.

    Yup, we are doing our best to warn people. The main concern, beyond just bugs, is trying to make sure we can convey to our early supporters what the direction of the game is going to be, since much of that is still in the process of being implemented at this very early stage. And how best to let our early supporters know all the cool and fun things which are going to be coming over the next months, without getting into trouble with overpromising anything we can't deliver.
    Just preparing you for the Steam release }:D (thank god it's not Early Access!)
    Ha, yeah, that is exactly the reason we decided to hold off on Steam Early Access until the game is ready for that kind of spotlight.

    Lol, nice!

    I know I'm full of warnings, but I also want to state that it's good to not get too attached to anything that is in the early prototypes. There's a lot of stuff in there that we explored, but ultimately felt wasn't the right way to go for the final direction of the game.
