After a few hours working with the programmer the issue on what was causing multiplayer to not work has been found out,fixed and will be in the first patch/release depending if it gets though a few tests and desuras patcher works.Also Desura has finally got the game in the shop so you can preorder its release is 2 weeks from now (gives the game time to patch multiplayer and try make it a bit better although until get upgraded software it wont perform great on older machines)
The good thing out all this means all features will be ready on release with many more to be added as the game gets income,art assets can be brought and general development will speed up.
For those unsure the game has a demo of it a few months back which gives an example of the combat and the quests although it is missing the crafting and pvp it also has working multiplayer so you can chat to others.
Here is a video showing roughly what is in first release (made before multiplayer fixed so now there will also be PvP)
There will be a sale for the game as it is in early alpha/launch version of 1/3 off (so it ~£10/$15 or the reginal equivalent)
Also Linux version is having a few issues but it will hopefully be available soon
