The latest update says they plan going into beta #1 in June for Kickstarters, and then a beta #2 a little later for everyone. Can't wait.

Also a name change from UBOOT to UBOAT. Personally I'm sadden by this, but totally understand the change.

According to a recent comment there is now a paypal option on the main campaign page. I am hesitant to use it though as I don't wanna just pay for one of the pledges and not receive it.

Yeah same here, I think I'll wait to see how the beta feedback goes.

So if I’m reading this right maybe August for an open beta and it could be in beta through the rest of the year. Am I understanding this correctly?

That's correct, we will keep this game in beta stage until beta testers will be satisfied with our game. As long as I suspect it's going to be disappointing for some, there is no other way.

Proper beta testing is something I always wanted as a developer and I'm happy that it's finally happening. All Silent Hunters were released with major bugs and UBOAT has even larger surface for that considering that crew is dynamic and more interactions are happening in the world on the map.

Any way I can get involved in that open beta without having backed the game? Id be happy to buy in now, if possible/needed.

Yes, we are going to publish a short form to fill a month after Kickstarters. It's going to be more manageable this way.
