Back in August, our plan was to start Alpha testing in order to get comprehensive feedback on the game, and then ramp up from there. What ended up happening is that our testing phases, including Closed Alpha, provided us with such valuable information on subjects like balance, stability, fun factor and more – that we were able to double down, start working on these things, and come up with a final road map that would take us straight to launch.

We know that many of you were hoping to be involved in a more full-blown Beta Testing phase. However, instead, we have been focused on using the data we received to improve the game so that we can get Grey Goo into your hands and onto your computer as soon as possible.

Therefore, we are happy to announce that Grey Goo will be released on Steam, January 23rd, 2015!

Until then, we have plans to bring a lot of really cool information and initiatives your way. You may have noticed that we've been conducting some Grey Goo live streams on Twitch. To add to that, in the upcoming months you can expect dev diaries, gameplay/team videos, and fascinating information related to Grey Goo’s backstory. We think this content will convince you more than ever that Grey Goo is the next RTS game you’ll want to play.

To start things off, we're pleased to share with you the first of several developer diaries that are coming your way. Give it a watch and then make sure to visit the official Grey Goo website and social media channels regularly for the latest news and information as we head towards release!
