Star Control: Origins Delay; New Founder's Option

October 2017 update for Star Control: Origins has the latest on Stardock's upcoming revival of the classic space series. They note that they have added a new tier to their founder's program, but warn that time is running out if you want to get in on this. They also say the game's full release will be delayed from their planned November target, but that they will release a Super Melee beta next month in time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Star Control 2. They promise more news in two weeks, and in the meantime, here's word:

It's been a year since we posted the last big public update on the new Star Control.

Last year, we began the Founders Program! Thank you all that joined. In the next two weeks, we will be ending the Founder's Program as we prepare for a public Beta program. If you want to join the Founder's Program it's not too late yet.

A new tier
Right now, we have Founders and Lifetime Founders. Both get access to our internal vault of stuff. Lifetime Founders get everything we ever make for Star Control: Origins. Those who are standard Founders get Star Control: Origins and everything we release for a year after.

Development schedule
Our original release date was going to be November 2017. That's exactly 25 years from the release of Star Control 2 (The Ur-Quan Masters). Some design changes we made have extended the development time (which I'll be talking more about soon) but we will be releasing the Super Melee beta in time for the anniversary.
