Posted by Data in Cortex Command - December 8th, 2007

After doing a first test of the payment system yesterday, rumors leaked out and I don’t think we can hold back the pre-release of the game any longer. So, here it is, for anyone to try. I want to emphasize that it is a pre-release of what we intended to be the commercial version! Next week we’ll try to have a more polished one up and call it the real deal.

Without further ado, the rightmost button below leads to the purchasing page for buying licenses. Since we ironed out the bugs yesterday, things should work smoothly. If there is any trouble though, don’t hesitate to contact us at!

    Bleh whatever. I guess Mac users are pretty much screwed for a port AGAIN. Just have to wait till Data feels like porting it D:
    Shame too, I -really- wanted to pay for this game.

    How, exactly are macs more convenient?

    @I Eat Stuff(303): Network/net play’d be /really/ neat, but it just won’t work, given current computer technology. Sorry, try again in a few years.

    just remember: what Data accomplishes in a week, would take you years to do.

  15. Hellfire999 - # December 19th, 2007 at 7:18 pm

    @ Darklink: Fucking bullshit, if you were you wouldn’t having a fucking computer or internet connection. All these beggers sicken me.

  16. Darklink - # December 20th, 2007 at 7:03 pm

    dude. it was a joke.
    I think its stupid how people are begging, and I’ve already got plans to buy the game. You can pull whatever’s up your ass out now.

    “Interesting moments of gameplay”

    Nothing extraordinary, but just for those who still not sure about buying a game.

    Only if not that need-to-be-online thing :

  18. Max - # December 21st, 2007 at 4:20 pm

    Hey, I want to address some people’s complaints.

    “The time limit is too short!”–Buy the game. that also solves the lack of modding ability.

    “The game costs too much!”–Get a job. It’s only twenty bucks. If you can’t get your parents to buy it for you, tough luck.

    “The game is too glitchy! It sucks!”–Remember that the game is a work in progress. If you want these problems fixed, buy the game and help fund Data Realms!

    “The AI is breaked!”–Yep…it may be, but as stated before, this game is still being developed. If you buy the game, Data will be able to make the game better.

    Just a side note, I put a copy of CC on a flash drive and then used my key on it. This lets me bring the full version wherever. Just to let you guys know that it works.
    Baii! XD

  19. RESOLUT - # December 22nd, 2007 at 1:46 am

    Oh MAX, MAX could you give me a copy of your key(i don’t think it will working)but if it worksi’ll sent it to another people who have same problems with buing the game

  20. RESOLUT - # December 22nd, 2007 at 1:47 am

    ooops, mistake ‘buying'(sorry for 2le posting)

  21. Ollieh - # December 22nd, 2007 at 4:29 am

    Resolut, that is called piracy.

  22. PaveL - # December 22nd, 2007 at 5:22 am

    Ghost Bear я решил купить тока не пойму чем они отличаются за 460 и 480RUB >_

  23. Hellfire999 - # December 22nd, 2007 at 2:29 pm

    Is Data waiting for Christmas to release the full B19?

  24. Octyl - # December 24th, 2007 at 5:34 pm

    Argghh!!!!! I lent my friend my key, so he could try it, and think about buying it. I decided i wanted to play, so i called him up and asked him to unregister in half and hour. He did, and i went to play. I couldn’t register, so i called him back. Turns out he had found the loop hole that he only promised to UNregister it, nothing about not registering it again. Now he has another friend over and won’t unregister until he’s done his game of Halo 3, probably set to a 2 hour time limit or somethin’. He’s Selfish. Would i email or PM data to have him reset the key? and what would i put in the email? just the key?

  25. sami - # December 25th, 2007 at 11:15 am

    i bought that full version (13e) i mean that cheaper version…. then i cant use it!!! cortex command said go register and put key in. i had no key, and e-mail is empty!!! 13e (10-12$) wasted to nothing, explain!

  26. PaveL - # December 27th, 2007 at 5:42 am

    Ghost Bear что то я точно не могу рассплотится с WebMoney ппц

  27. Davidos - # December 29th, 2007 at 7:08 pm

    ‘ Are we going to have to fuckin pay for every single fucking release now?

    You people sicken me.

    First you lure people with your free crap and then you slam a payment bill in their face!

    Do you know how many good games were free and you have to pay for them now?


    I’m ‘this’ close to come over there and shove that goddamn coding machine of yours up your ass!
    Some people actually need to WORK to be able to live properly, hell I can hardly pay the fuckin rent and now I gotta pay for my ex-favorite game, thanks alot jerks.

    Fucking die. ‘

    I’d like to say, well spoken. I have no idea how long it will be on the forums but I fully agree…

  28. Cighton - # January 1st, 2008 at 12:08 am

    Daaaammn! I so need to buy this!! (Buying it on Jan. 1!) <–

  29. the adviser - # January 1st, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    @Davidos: no you don’t have to pay for each build you just have to pay for the key once. also i think these people deserve to be payed for their game plus if what i’ve heard is correct than this game has been in development for 7 YEARS which is twice as long as most commercial games development time so when you say they should work then maybe you should think of how long this game has been in the making i mean DATA is even married. so give him some slack, save up if you want it, or just ask your parents to buy it as a gift or something

    Who is Daniel Tabar?

  31. Dpmn - # January 26th, 2008 at 2:55 am

    Daniel Tabar is Data – Take the 2 first letters from both his first and second name e.g DAniel TAbar

  32. Magnus - # February 9th, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    must i buy the 18.99 can or the 39 .99 include the games and a extra thx

  33. Data - # February 10th, 2008 at 12:17 am

    Magnus: Not quite sure what you mean?

  34. Magnus - # February 10th, 2008 at 9:37 am

    o sry my english is bad . if i want the ((full games)) wich one i must take or the two give the full games ?? do the 39.86 have the full games or is it just a special thx

    Full Version for 18.88 CAD
    This is the normal deal which will get you all updates of Cortex Command up to and including the full campaign if and when it is completed. This option is discounted from the full final price because the whole campaign and content are currently NOT in the game yet.

    Support Data Realms Edition for 39.86 CAD
    This is for people who want to give extra support for further devlopment of Cortex Command and other Data Realms games by paying the full price of the game today. Your help will not be forgotten

  35. Joel - # March 20th, 2008 at 10:08 pm


    Both options come with updates to the finished game. The first option is cheap because the game isn’t finished, so Data isn’t charging full price. The Support Data Realms Edition costs more because the extra $20 is like a tip. I hope you understand now.

  36. jks - # February 2nd, 2009 at 10:18 am

    Oh! I want to сказать ,,,, что я здесь ничЁ не понимать
