Beta testing has been going for about a month now. Those of you who played it greatly helped us by fixing bugs and minimizing the number of crashes, thank you! But we wish we would receive more general feedback and impressions about gameplay. So, if you had a chance to play, we invite you to this topic on our forum: Feedback and impressions about beta (in Russian here) to share what you think about our game.
Yes, many things in the interface are not working properly and we received a lot of feedback about it. But no worries, the final version will have hints, armies information, units information and objects - basically everything that can be displayed by a right click. There will be also marks on the map, full save/load interface and many other things. We realize that all those things are very important. As a result, we ask you not to focus on missing elements of the game interface but focus more on overall gameplay. Maybe, you will find the following questions helpful:
- How easy or difficult was the game for you?
- How easy or difficult was it to figure out the rules of the game?
- What is missing in gameplay, in your opinion?
- What are strong and weak sides of gameplay?
And also, since we would like to get more feedback and to have a broader range of opinions, we would like to open beta testing to our $15 backers with the next patch when we add a lot of things: hints, proper save/load, a scenario just with battles. Out of more than 2000 invitations for beta, only over 500 were redeemed at Desura and extra few were downloaded DRM-free. Out of those, over 20 people commented about the game on our forums. We understand that not all of you have time to beta test, or some of you prefer to wait until the game is finished but we need more feedback.
Now, we hope you guys who chose $25 reward, won’t feel disadvantaged (we hope all others rewards levels are fine with this little change) since you got access to beta much earlier and you have two copies of the game. We hope this sounds fair for you. If not, please let us know what we can do to make it up to you.
Soon, we are going to Steam Greenlight. Stay tuned, an update is coming and we will be asking for your support again – we will be asking for votes instead of money :) We are working on putting together a gameplay video for this and we are almost done.
