Title: CryoFall - Closed Alpha Test Applications
Post by: Lurler on January 08, 2017, 10:36:12 pm
(https://atomictorch.com/Images/Upload/10373.png?maxwidth=500)

We are finally ready to announce that we are starting the closed alpha test for CryoFall.

This is a very major step for us on the road towards completing this project! :)

The aim of this test is to:
* Get general feedback about the project in this early stage to determine possible areas of improvement and focus points.
* Get some general suggestions and ideas for possible implementation in the near future.
* Identify and fix any possible bugs that we were not able to find ourselves.
* To kickstart the community around the project. You can post any of your thoughts on this forum.

Please note that:
* For now we can only provide a build for Windows, because other builds are still in development and will not be available until the actual release.
* The game is not even in alpha. It is still a prototype and there is not much of a game yet.
* You will need an Internet connection to play the game as CryoFall is designed for a multiplayer experience.

Now, if you would like to apply to be a part of alpha testers team please fill in the form below and post in this thread. From all submissions here we will select a number of people (but most likely everyone as long as you can play at all) and provide them with a test build of the game and a game code to activate. To activate the access code you have to have an account on the AtomicTorch site. If you still don’t have one, create it here: https://atomictorch.com/Account/Register (https://atomictorch.com/Account/Register).

Application Form
Location - Country and city or at least a general region where you are (mostly to understand your ping)

How much time can you dedicate - Just how much time can you spend on that and when are you usually free (e.g. everyday on late evening)

@Pinkeh
Code for closed test is sent!


Also, sorry guys but we are not accepting new applications for now.

We will be concluding the the test in a few days as we have gathered all the necessary data to be able to proceed with the game. As the project develops a bit more we will most likely launch another test, either closed or open.
