Ladies and gents, the moment you've all been waiting for!

Well, almost- the very-much-still-in-testing, definitely-not-bug-free, nowhere-near-final-build moment you've all been waiting for!!! ;)

In the weeks ahead we will likely be initiating our Alpha Test program. It will include some basic functionality and will serve, as these early tests often do, to stress test various parts of our system.

Expect something very rough around the edges, but the first glimpse into a fully functional offering.

More to come- we're still determining how exactly we want to do the rollout, so watch this space!

Also, please PM me your preferred email address if you'd like to participate.

Best,
AA and The Alliance Team

No convention showings yet- we're doing a lot of low-level system work, and the graphics/presentation aren't nearly where they'd need to be.

I may have explained this before, but it's definitely worth mentioning here- we're taking a bit of an opposite approach this time around. In 2006, as we were gunning (puns puns) for a publisher deal, visual presentation was key. Now, as our releases will be direct to you (aka, playable), we're focusing first on gameplay, networking layer, etc. etc. This is not to say graphics and visuals won't play a *huge* part in the final product. We're obviously graphics heads and we love it. But until that time, we're focusing on the core gameplay and, as a result, public showings and marketing-type releases don't make sense.

At last!!!!

If the Alpha is anything like the early trailers at all the term rough will likely be a gross exaggeration ;D

I'm pretty sure I can sum up everyone's response via this video:

Also, a small group of people are involved in the very initial rollout.

As we test things, we will open it up wider and wider to everyone!
