Discord is a text and voice communications platform, similar to Skype or Teamspeak
This Discord server has been set up to allow supporters and backers of Infinity: Battlescape to keep in touch and talk over voice. It also acts as a coordinating hub for in-game activities, especially around Alpha Weekends. The I-Novae developers are also reachable on this server during server events and at other times, so it’s a great place to come and ask questions.
If you haven’t already, you may want to sign up for Discord. You can use the app in your browser, but downloading the client is recommended.
Once you’re in the app, join the server by clicking this link.
There are some bots on the server that will give let you find out more about the status of the servers, or the crowdfunding campaign, among other things. To find out what features these bots offer, you can type
!help in the server to get information about the commands available. More features may be added to these bots (developed by @Topperfalkon and @cybercritic), so check back once in a while to see what’s changed.
(Below is the post that inspired the creation of the server, preserved for posterity )
Continuing the discussion from Angels Fall First or other multiplayer space dog fight games:
Discord is a free application that provides free messaging, TTS, and voice servers for gaming communities, which can be accessed either via their website or a native app. It has benefits over other clients like Skype because it has permanent servers, and Teamspeak because it’s free, and Steam Community because it maintains the ability to split servers into many text and voice channels.
It’s currently in beta, so it’s still a little rough around the edges, but it might be a helpful tool for the community to use to get together and play games.

If people are interested, I’ll get it set up and looking a bit better laid out.
