Beta Testers, Forums, & Meet the Developers
A huge thanks to all our backers for helping us surpass the $2,000 mark!
Every backer immediately qualifies to become a Beta Tester of Halfling Wars. Someone recently brought to our attention that it's unclear how much the game will be once it's in the App store. They thought we were only offering a Beta copy of the game and not the finished game as a reward.
The reason we're not offering the complete game as a reward is because it will be FREE! Anyone can download the game for free once it's in the App store. The $6 pledge reward is an early Beta Version of the game specifically for Beta Testers. We hope that didn't confuse anyone.
We just tested out our recent build and will have another build for testers in 2-3 weeks. At that time we'll have a forum on www.halflingwars.com set up for Beta Testers to share their input and to help us find bugs. We want you involved in the testing process to help us make a better game.
Also we've been working on a gameplay trailer all weekend and will have one uploaded by no later than Tuesday morning. We apologize for the delay. So stay tuned for that Beta Copy, forums, and a gameplay trailer. In the meantime please leave any questions in the comments section.
