To my recollection, Wednesday and Thursday releases have been more common.

I always wondered how some people thought that Wednesday was the most common release date even though I always counted more for Thursdays.

I did check steamdb.info the other day and PA was updated on Wednesday and they usually update on steam a few days before release so I'd put my money on Friday.

I cannot point to where they said they'd do monthly releases. But they certainly said (Chris did) that they wouldn't be an Alpha 15 at the end of October 2013, which does at *least* imply a monthly schedule.

What IV have said is that they will *try* to get an alpha out at the end of every month, and they have been pretty good about letting the community know when they are not going to meet that tentative goal. That being said, they have never once promised that they will release every month, nor have they promised to let us know if they are not going to release at the end of the month. People seem to assume that because IV have been good about this in the past that it is some kind of implied contract.

What xander said. Although if you need a pointer for that, Mark said it near the end of one of the earlier Alpha release videos. Somewhere between A3 and A5 I think.

from one of the vids with player questions:

'isnt it hard to not get distracted?
-it would be harder if you've had a deadline to create a game in say 2 years. but our montly release target keeps us quite focused'

or something along the lines of that. no promises, but a guideline it seems.
