Looking for Alpha Testers
« Topic Start: March 17, 2016, 02:28:14 AM »
I'm looking for a bunch of alpha testers, people who would like to play the game before anyone else does.

  • needs to have a PC, Mac or Linux machine to test it. Post which it is so I know what clients to build.
  • needs to be ready to give feedback. Don't need silent people.
  • needs to understand this is an alpha development state - things will break, everything is unfinished, graphics are placeholders, etc. etc.
  • time demand for the game is probably 10-15 minutes a turn. During alpha test, we will experiment with the number of turns per day, from one to several, to find out what works.

To sign up, post below. I need to know how many people I can count on.

I'm inviting everyone who checked in on other places, such as Facebook, to join here. The forum is the primary location now, I just can't post updates all over the place.

If I've got a device to play on, I'll be in (currently away from home for a while but hoping to get a MacBook of some type soon)

Also spread word to your friends. I would like to have about 20 people in the test game, because the game needs 28 players in a full game.

Website has been updated with some reasonably good documentation, so you can get a first impression of the gameplay:

I might be able to help in two or three weeks too, at least if giving feedback three times a week or so is enough for you. I'll surely be able to play through most turns, but elaborating about them won't be possible everyday. I am currently waiting for my new laptop, once it arrives I'll post once again to see how everything goes.

My pleasure, it's only a little return for what you have given us for years.

Game 2 just got a turn, I'm holding back game 3 a bit. Is anyone waiting for a game to start?
