I believe that at this point there's no viable way to get involved in the beta testing. Eventually Jupiter Hell will move to Early Access on Steam, and I believe access will be able to be purchased then, but that's still a ways off. This is all hearsay from me, however.

I paid for beta access, but received nothing. Are there details about getting in?

In an old old post it seems that the Steam key for the beta was sent out via email.  I had alpha access, so I received my key on Oct 03, 2018.

In case that url cannot be entered, it just states something to the effect of "beta keys have been sent via email -- if you haven't received it when you should, contact 'us'".  Naturally, "us" would refer to ah Kornel.

Hope this helps.

I hope it's alright to ask here.

I've pledged £16.00 , which means I "get the  the game once it goes live on Steam or wait a bit and get a DRM free key at full release". I'm a little confused about the specifics of this. So can I have full access during both early access and after release, or do I get to choose? Also, what is DRM?

You get it once it hits retail 1.0 (that is after Early Access). DRM means "Digital Rights Management", AKA "Copy protection". DRM-free usually means you get it without any copy protection and usually either download it directly from the company or from a site like GoG.com that does not include DRM.

Steam, believe it or not, is DRM. In most cases, Steam must be running to play Steam games.

Thanks for replying but this is mostly false :P. First of all - everyone who ever payed for Jupiter Hell, be it Kickstarter, Humble or Itch is getting a key the moment we launch into Early Access. Second - Steam has its DRM wrapper (we use it for the demo weekends) but it's opt-in - due to not being a fan of DRM, JH will be released without DRM on Steam, and will be launch able without the Steam client running.

So, Kornel, what you're saying is that, even if we want the GOG key, we can still redeem the "Early Access" steam key we got in the mail a few days ago ?

If you confirm, I'll happily start playing and giving feedback (well, if I find something requiring it, that is).

Also, I think it would deserve a sticky post, too, because of what was said in the Kickstarter (which you cannot change, I know)

Yes, everyone will get a complimentary GOG key, so go ahead and play :)
