Post news RSS Cogmind Alpha Access LAUNCHED!

Announcing the start of Cogmind's Alpha Access program. Start playing right now, and get other benefits too!

Posted by on

Cogmind is here!

Pre-Alpha development has officially come to an end with the release of our first Alpha version over on the website. Thank you for your patience and support through the nearly two years that this blog has been sharing progress updates on the game. It's been a long journey, and we're not done yet, but Cogmind has finally reached a state worthy of release as we work towards 1.0 in the open.

Welcome to Alpha!

To introduce you to the awesomeness inside, we've put together an epic trailer that you're going to want to fullscreen and watch in HD for maximum roguelike (wouldn't hurt to turn up the volume, either =p):

YouTube version: Youtu.be


Trailer music by Alex Yoder.

Please help spread the word by sharing the trailer and/or Cogmind site with anyone who might be interested, be they friends and family or online communities. The more support we can rally at this stage, the better the final game will be! Thank you!

Awesome trailer ! Congratulations for the Alpha launch.
Unfortunately I won't be able to buy the game right now but I will continue to follow the development with interest.

Glad you liked the trailer! And development will continue in earnest, though there may be slightly fewer blog posts as I allocate more time to the growing community.

The good news is "next month" is only 11 days away! ;) And I don't *think* we'll run out of the limited part of the rewards by then... That would need a lot of sales.

Thank you! It works great in Wine on Linux if you use that. What are you on?

Mac. Hopefully it works. However, I've not gotten the confirmation email of my forum account nor for the download link to the game... :$

Hm, you could've always tested it first! The Cogmind 7DRL (cogmindrl.blogspot.com) uses the same engine and is a freely available download, so if it works then the new one will, too.

About the emails, check your spam folders! They often end up there. And if you still can't find the purchase email (which should come immediately), just email me your last name and I'll look it up in the system for you.

Really just a case study in quality design from every angle. That trailer is kickass, and it's just for the alpha. Best of luck.

Thanks Gn0meSlice :). I rather like the trailer myself, but I'm already afraid of all the time I'd have to put into another one of that quality for 1.0!
