    Beach Blanket Beta Early Bird

    Hit the beach early by getting the game before it's finished! Comb the beach for secrets in the alpha and beta test versions of Summer Daze at Hero-U. We're starting with Tilly's story, so you'll have an opportunity to play through her section of the game while we are still developing Ifeyo's section.

    Then you'll get to try that out in its charming, preliminary state before we find the spelling and grammatical errors, out-of-order plot elements, and so on. You'll get to help us make all that better in time for the game release.

    You'll get credited in-game and on our website for your generous support and contributions to the game.

    We'll also give you a one-year invitation to our "Heroes only" channels on Discord, where you can converse with the other cool kids. There you'll get to suggest a joke or pun that we'll try (subject to editorial approval) to incorporate into the game or website.

    We'll send you an awesome desktop wallpaper download for your screen... or desk!

    Includes:
    • Premium "heroes" Discord role for one year
    • Beta Test Access
    • Backer credit in-game
