We have released a new trailer, and have enabled instant Alpha access! Watch it here:
As most people know by now, our Alpha has started! This means that all of our alpha keys have gone out. If you already ordered and haven’t gotten your key yet, please check the bottom of this post. There are some suggestions on how to check the status of your key. You probably already have your key, it just may have gotten caught in a nasty spam filter.
We also have instant access enabled! If you buy a Galactic Edition or Cosmic Edition of Planetary Annihilation, you’ll get an email immediately providing immediate access to the alpha. We’ve said it a lot, but it warrants repeating: Alpha means the game is not finished! It isn’t heavily optimized yet, it doesn’t have all its features yet. It is not for the faint of heart. As of today, only Windows 64 (Vista, Win 7 & Win8) is supported. We expect Mac OS/X to be available in the next week or two, and Linux soon after. The 32-bit Windows client should also become available in that time frame. Windows XP is not supported. If you want to play PA, it’s time to upgrade to a newer OS. With all the caveats and addendums out of the way, we hope we see you!
Thanks and see you in game!

Finding my key information:
Check here: http://store.uberent.com/account/MyKeys
If your key is there, activate it, then download https://store.uberent.com/download/palauncher.exe
Don’t worry if you bought extra beta keys or retail keys that don’t show up here yet, especially if you bought three packs during the Kickstarter. They’ll be visible, and upgradeable, soon.
Ok, nothing there. I was an early backer or pre-order. Check here: https://store.uberent.com/Account/MyAccount
Are there any purchases? Even if they show “$0”? Yes? Check and make sure you actually have alpha access. Which means $90 or up for reward tier or Galactic or Cosmic edition.
If pre-order, now is when you email Uber with proof that you bought the alpha, and the account you bought it on.
If early access, proceed to step 4.
Go to http://uberent.com/KS/FindMyPledge and enter in the email address you originally used in Kickstarter and check your inbox.
If you no longer have access to that email address, email Uber. And be prepared to provide proof that you are who you say you are.
If you have the same address, but aren’t seeing it, try verifying your mail at store.uberent.com and make sure you can get mail from us.
If you have done all that still nothing, you should email us.
If you did all that, and you honestly stepped through 1 – 3 and nothing, email us.
