Your sign in page says "SING UP". I will, but there might be dogs howling.

In space, no one can hear you sing.

A few technical notes/problems:

1. The sign-up page insists it's a "SING UP" page (both in the title and in-page text). Which is a bit funny, but I assume not an intentional joke on starting uplifting communal songs about the merit of the game.

2. I wrote my email address in the box, pressed the button, and got the button's text changed to "Thank you!". Which should mean I was added to the list. But I didn't receive any email message. So the options are:
2.1. I wasn't actually added to the list. So the page logic need to change to show an error message instead of a "Thank you!" if such a failure is possible.
2.2. I was added to the list, but the list-manager doesn't send a confirmation email, or even a welcome email. This is problematical, and should be fixed. Getting a confirmation/welcome email is important, because it's the only clear way to know that I was really added to the list. And it's important to reduce potential false-subscriptions by letting people know an attempt was made to add them to the list, when the attempt was made.

Beyond that, good luck going forward, I'm definitely waiting for the game.

FYI, I got an email with a verification link after signing up.

Although apparently I signed up for updates on "First Martins". Call it constructive feedback rather than criticism, your English is way better than my Polish

Tried again, still nothing.

So I guess it's not a process problem, but is rather personal. Ignacy, beyond buying just most of your games, what have I done to offend you?

I signed up at the page, no email yet. But I thought there had been an earlier notification sign up for this game, maybe I had signed up for that already so it's not doubling me up? Could be getting things confused though.

I singed up with no problems, but note the following two things (which are NOT a problem with the website, but worth pointing out):

1. Using Firefox with NoScript, I naturally had to enable scripts on the web site.
2. The confirmation email showed up in my spam folder (I expected this, of course).
