Just backed! How do I start playing 3.0?
« on: October 19, 2017, 05:28:39 PM »

I just got the $25 early beta package after having a blast with the demo. With Alpha 3.0 dropping today, I am wondering how do I access it? I was never asked to log in or give my email when I used PayPal or anything like that.

I don't think 3.0 is available yet. I haven't gotten a download code yet. Albeit I was a bit delayed in the survey response, so I wouldn't be surprised if they need some time to get the codes distributed.

Also, since you backed during the extension, I don't think you'll have access until the extension is over, unless they changed it.

Wait, seriously? That's over a month from now. What's the point of buying Closed Beta if you don't get access to it until Early Access is released?

Yes, from the extension page @ http://portia.pathea.net/kickstarter_extension it states :

Quote
This is the My Time at Portia Kickstarter Extension Campaign. All the tiers from the Kickstarter are still active here. This campaign will last 40 days from October 16th until November 25th midnight Eastern Standard Time. All the payments will go through Paypal. The beta Steam keys will go out to backers within 3 days after the end of this extension run.

Also I believe Early Access release is planned for January, iirc. So you'll still have access prior to that, just not as soon as the original Kickstarters.

What about Alpha though? It is Alpha 3.0 that is releasing soon.

So I paid for Closed Beta but I won't be given access to it (or even Alpha 3.0) until it is over? That is absolutely ridiculous, I'm definitely getting a refund. Thanks for your help!

If you back the extension for the beta tier, you will get access to 3.0 before Early Access.

Early access will be in January, with the release of 4.0. You will be able to play 3.0 and My time at portia before that time if you back the extension. You should get your key at the end of november and be able to play 3.0 before Early Access in january.

I backed on Kickstarter and received my 2.9 code this morning.

They're calling it 2.9 due to some translation that still needs to be done, according to the e-mail. They said 3.0 should be released sometime next week.
