Beta 0.3 Release
We have some huge changes for you in our newest release, v0.3. Keep reading for all the juicy details.
PAY-AS-YOU-GO STORAGE INCREASE
One of the bits of feedback we’ve seen consistently in the community is that 100 GB of storage wasn’t enough for some titles. Well, we’ve listened and have decided to double storage for pay-as-you-go users. As of Monday, October 9th Pay-as-you-go users can enjoy 200GB of storage on their SkyComputers. Note: Due to a minor bug, the client will may say 100GB of storage, but your SkyComputer will actually have 200GB.
NEW SIGNUP FLOW WITH INSTANT FREE TRIAL
We have introduced a new signup flow, making it easier for new users to sign up and check out LiquidSky without any hassle. Quick and easy. “But, we want to be able to try the platform before making a purchase!” We heard you, and we have that now. New users going through this signup flow will have a free 20 minute trial which they can activate. Upon activating your trial, you’ll be able to create or login to your Steam profile where there will be three pre-installed demos waiting for you to play: Doom, Prey, and Hitman. Be sure to click on the “installed” games section to find these demos for you to try. No need to waste your 20 minute trial downloading anything! Only new users will be able to go through the demo experience.
Oh yeah, we’ve also gone ahead and released all the boarding groups. If you’ve had an account in the past but never tried LiquidSky you’ll get the new free trial demo experience. No more waiting – hop into the Sky and give it a try now!
Be sure to share your referral codes with your friends so they get an extended 30 minutes to their trial.

PHASING OUT FREE USERS
This was a hard decision for us, but as our demand continues to grow, so too does our business. We have come to the conclusion that in order for us to maintain the direction we’re heading, we need to focus solely on our paid users. We truly appreciate all of our users. Everyone has been invaluable in beta testing LiquidSky and making us the company we are today. As such, we will be shutting down ad supported accounts. Effective immediately, ad supported accounts will no longer be able to access LiquidSky. Use code UPGRADEMEPLEASE by October 23rd for 50% off your first purchase to keep your access to LiquidSky. Protip: Be on the lookout for some killer deals over the next few weeks if you’re on the fence.
