Interesting looking game.  The video is over an hour long....does anyone actually watch it from start to finish? I tend to click along the line at the bottom watching a minute or so here and there, maybe 5 to 10 minutes total.  Just curious.

I wasn't going to, but I ended up watching the whole video. I liked what I saw and am happy that I was one of its Kickstarter supporters.

According to this, "Early access versions are now available for all PC platforms!" An Early Access Bundle is priced at $50 U.S.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

^As tempted as I might be, I think I'm going to wait for release and get it for $30 rather than spending $50 now.

I check in on At the Gates every once in a while in the hopes that its getting closer to release. 

Doesn't look like it'll be released anytime soon...if ever.  :(  The situation sounds somewhat similar to the Limit Theory debacle...a developer getting in over his head.  I pledged for Limit Theory, glad I decided to wait on At the Gates.  Still hoping both make it, but...

Hey all, apologies for the lengthy radio silence. I've been dealing with some health issues the past few months and had to take some time off. I'm back in the saddle as of today though, so no need to worry about whether the game will be finished or not - you should start seeing updates to the game again next week!

Sounds like the backers are still waiting for any updates 3 months later.

Yikes...from his last Kickstarter update last November.  He's either very determined to see it through, crazy or both.

As noted in a previous section, I'm actually the only full-time developer on AtG, which certainly makes things a whole lot easier that it could be. Everyone else is either a part-timer with some other full-time source of income or a contractor paid for specific work we've known about in advance since the Kickstarter campaign and comes in at a total of $25k, 99% which has already been paid for. Even so, our once-fat sack o' Kickstarter loot has indeed been exhausted, resulting in a initial budget shortfall of around $150k. We've done better with direct pre-orders than I'd actually expected and cut the deficit by $23k. The remaining gap has been filled by proceeds from selling my house, car, and retirement account.

Too bad, I was looking forward to that one.  Like you, glad I didn't KS though.  Hopefully he will get it finished though.

Sounds to my like Jon has had some serious  health issues this year that prevented him from working on the game or staying in contact with the community.  Good for him for putting his health before finishing some stupid video game.  I hope the game makes it out and I'm sure it will be worth the wait, but I'd hardly categorize this as "getting in over his head".

Agreed. Still hopeful this comes out, but not at the expense of him getting over whatever health issues he's been dealing with.

Sounds like Jon is back at work, tough year for him.  I guess a new update was released to backers too.

Ok so this is a actual full release...not an early access release, right?

I love the time period but the graphics are making my eyes bleed.

I've realized that, in most strategy games, the quality of graphics has almost nothing to do with the enjoyment that I receive from it.  Eye candy in a game can be nice, but I've sunk 100+ hours into plenty of games with horrific graphics (Eador: Genesis, AI Wars, various Dominions titles, the list goes on and on).

I'll be curious to hear what people think of this one.

Me too. I’ve just got used to my Pike and Shot, and Field of Glory, and the Total War campaign map, and Order of Battle, and other titles. I now know that wargames don’t have to look like 1977 anymore.
