Dear Space Shooter fans,
today is the another special day for us. We have decided to start the single-player closed beta testing phase. We are inviting all our loyal fans that received any medal award and all the players that have won our best 24 pilots competition. In addition to that we will continue inviting every person that will receive a medal for any contribution to the game. Every person invited to this beta test will receive a veteran badge in the final game and some special treats such as a special ingame veteran ship or ship pimping and other very interesting stuff. We are very grateful to all that are helping us finish this project.
The places in the closed beta testing are limited! Please act quickly if you wish to participate. We will announce on our website when we fill all our closed beta testing slots.
We have split this release into public build and private build. Public build is available to everybody and features the well known flythrough of the game with some new graphical features. Its basically an upgraded version of the game flythrough. All that have the demo flythrough already installed just need to run the game and it will patch automatically. For every person that did not install the public build yet now is your chance to see it with upgraded graphics and sounds:
Private build is the actual closed beta-test that every contributor can gain access to. All users of the private build will already be able to create their own sectors with our ingame editor!
Its really easy to gain access to the closed beta-test. Just check our rules how to attain a medal:
The development of the game is going fairly well and this is the reason why we have decided to move up a notch. We have not yet decided to release a full demo of the game to general public. What we need now is our loyal fanbase to help us with polishing the current game and content.
Every medal holder and every competition winner should check his registered email for further instructions how to install the game. The game testing will be under NDA and as such information from testing will open to general public.
The current features present in the private build are basic and will be upgraded every week in order to test the different features of the game. This is a great chance for every person out there to watch the game in all its development phases.
We have also released new screenshots of the game for your viewing pleasure. We hope you will like them.
