Official Statement and an apology from Meteoric Games.



Hello Space Explorers,

My name is Justin and I'm in charge of Meteoric Games. Over the last few years, me and my team - which for the majority of the time was just a programmer - took on an ambitious project that was Jumpdrive.

I'm here to address what has been said this last couple of days about the state of the final game. Indeed, we intended Jumpdrive to look different when the game finally releases, and I sincerely apologize to anyone who expected more than what we delivered. Unfortunately, it is simply impossible to for small, indie studio to artificially sustain the development of a game for so long. Truth be told, every last penny earned from Steam Early Access was spent back on development, and it was still far from enough.

Which is why I decided to set it to full release and lower the price of the game.

While the situation is far more complex, I'm not writing to you to offer excuses nor to blame anyone. I only wish to apologize to those who wanted more from Jumpdrive.

I know I cannot change the past, but as a small token of this apology, I wanted to say that those who supported us from the very beginning will receive free access to our next game.

Thank you for your understanding!
Justin

Jumpdrive launches fully on Steam!



Hello Space Explorers!

As we recently have promised you - today is a special day. After almost 4 years of development, Jumpdrive is finally out of the Early Access program and released fully on Steam.

It's been a long and sometimes difficult journey, so we want to thank each and every one of you, who accompanied us during the development of this title.

The creation of this game using rather an unorthodox approach of mutually sharing code between us and Pioneer team thaught us a lot. At the same time, we do realize, that some of the plans we had initially might have been too ambitious for our small, independent team, and to compensate for that we decided to lower the price of the game to 9,99$.

What's next for the Meteoric Games? We're not going to waste time, and we'll see you soon again in another place in the galaxy.

Love,
Meteoric Games
