Beta Testing
« on: February 12, 2016, 02:33:24 PM »
Hi folks

I'd like to kick off some beta testing next week. I know some of you have been very keen to get hold of the game, but please be aware that the game is not done yet, and if you just wanted to get the game early, then you'll be disappointed, so please be a patient a little longer until it's actually released.

However, if you'd like to a play a game with lots of bugs, some unfinished bits, the odd bit of clunky UI and retarded AI, then send me an email at beta@orientalempires.com with your username on this forum.

We also have a testing company looking at the game too, so the purpose of the beta isn't to find bugs, but to tune the overall flow of the game, find out what's confusing, annoying or unfun, and to see what's too useful, and what's useless.

You'll need a steam account, time to play the game over the next few weeks, and be willing to sign an NDA to not discus the game publicly until its released.

I don't want to get swamped by too much feedback, so the first round of testing will be limited to 12 people.

Yes! Now it's time to have everyone send in the beta request at the same time to make their folders full!

I'd be glad to test it out if you're still looking for people.

The world is large and has many timezones, so we may not be in the same one. Also I tend to work late, and only just send the invites out.

Hello everyone, beta is almost ready to go out.

I haven't received back signed NDAs from the following people yet. If you don't see it in your mail, check your spam folder

Dodo,

I'll hold your spots for a couple more days, but if I haven't got the NDA by then I'll give the spot to someone else.
