Release date - Easter 2020 / TBA
Ad-Astra ALPHA Stage "Alpha backer" package.
This is a standalone product with an annual subscription. Please carefully read the description before making a purchase. PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL PRODUCT IN ITS EARLY DEVELOPMENT STAGES.
The introductory subscription price of £4.50 for the whole year for early access Ad-Astra "Alpha backers". The price point for subscription WILL increase once we reach the BETA later this year.
Alpha backers will have access to use the experimental development version of the product. That means that THERE WILL BE BUGS AND NOT ALL CONTENT WILL BE AVAILABLE STRAIGHT AWAY. It is hoped that when you find these bugs, you'll bring them to our attention! (see the manual for our Alpha Backers portal, where you can make bug reports). We'd also like you to be a big part of the development process and invite you to suggest additional features that may be considered and added to the Ad-Astra package.
The Ad-Astra package is a subscription-only product (paid annually) The plan for Ad-Astra is to make a fully-featured information based catalogue of responses by ASTRA. These responses are all tied to in-game events. Watch the demo here (COMING SOON).
Ad-Astra currently requires at least one voice pack to work, however a stand-alone version will be coming later.
Ad-Astra is entering its first phase of development (ALPHA stage) and we're inviting everyone to subscribe for early access. The price will increase tp £7.99 once we begin the BETA stage, or once we release updated content.
