4/11- Keys seem to have run out according to replies some in the community has received.

Get the steam key at: https://www.projectgenesis.com/

Original post I saw this from: https://de.alienwarearena.com/ucf/show/2123479/boards/gaming-news/News/project-genesis-free-to-keep-for-alpha-testers

TL;DR;

  • Create an account at the dev's website to get the steam key (have to use it within 24hrs)

  • to download the game, you need to "opt in" the correct server (same as other private beta/alpha tests). To do this, select the game in your steam library, right click it>properties>beta and type in the code bigtanksayshi, confirm and make sure the correct beta is selected.
    Tutorial on how if you haven't done this before: https://youtu.be/UApdEvaXY64)

  • Login at least once, perhaps spend some time before alpha ends to keep the game. Devs have indicated they will measure game activity to determine this.

31/03 PSS - Website seems to be experiencing an issue in doling out keys, the system message provided by GlutenTag (love this name btw) below seem to indicated you may need to email the devs after account creation to request for a key (game looks neat tho!)

Always nice to meet another waffle aficionado! Looks like Rootwater already beat me to it with that delicious chocolate-dipped waffle, but I'll remember that for next time (although I guess you can never have too many waffles!) :)

heya, you need to "opt in beta" in your game's properties. select your game in the steam lib, right click on it to select properties>beta> type in bigtanksayshi and choose the new option called "prealpha_corvus" in the dropdown menu of the beta tab

How can the dev tell if you've logged in to revoke the key later?

Without doing anything complicated they can just issue a second set of keys to users who logged in.

pmed the reddit poster in the screenshot to see if they can elaborate, as I figured that would be a somewhat common question :)

  1. Dev has the keys assigned to site accounts.
  2. Dev can query key to see who activated it and can lookup steamids for app playtime, and site account stats.

Guess should be clear enough

Thanks for clearing that up. I was confused because in the past a Dev revoked keys for 3 bundle sites and I always wondered why he couldn't revoke the keys for 1 site he had an issue with.

My Steam client says 'project genesis already owned ',must have picked this up sometime in the past.

Just had to add that code bigtanksayshi in the beta options to get it to start downloading..
Note:
You might need to select the beta option again after entering the code.
3.8gb download.

I deleted a 'blank.txt' + 'blank' folder in steamapps\common\PROJECTGENESIS
Might not cause any issues , i think it's made if you try to download without entering the beta first.

Heya, if you created an account already at their website you can use the same login info to get in the game. Assuming that's what you are referring to, the login/sign up window that shows up once you open the game?

Can't register on their website.
The verification mail sends me to the login screen.
If I try to login it sends me back to the "confirm your email screen".

For those who are interested, I tried the game, seems polished and functional, unfortunately it barely has any players, and no tutorial. It's a mix between spaceship combat and FPS team based multiplayer. It's difficult to judge how good or bad it is, simply because it seems the game gets more complex, the more people play it. So far it has not grabbed my attention, the shooting is not satisfying and the ship controls are terrible.

You need to make an account on their website(needed for the game login too), then ask for a key on Discord. They do send keys through DM. Well used to anyway.
The game is decent i hope it makes it.

So, after almost 2 weeks I finally got a key - but it was a duplicate code. Well, that's just great. ^^

Uff sorry to hear that. I got mine when I first read it on alienware and the entire process was easy painless. They do reply on Discord if you haven't tried that yet though I'd understand at some point it just becomes too much hassle for any game :p

I never got a key. I got a message when I registered to send them an email for the key but never got a response.

I don't do discord so that's out. Just as well I suppose, I've already got too many games in my backlog.
