Hi,

The alpha test version is now ready! Please give it a bash and let me know what you think. It's a super early version, so a lot of things don't work - like shipping, the wizard and castles. A lot of it does work though, so it would be really useful to get some early first impressions.

For the iPad version, go to this link:

You can download the Mac version from here:

Let me know if you have any problems or any comments!

Thanks,

Dean.

I would like to help you test your game.

I am an experienced playtester. My previous playtest credits of games you might know about include Shockwave (from Ogre), multiple Car Wars expansions (beginning with #3), GURPS, Arimaa, and Grim Reaper.

I have gone to the TestFlight site, created an account, and registered my iPad.

Downloading now... I'll let you know (and edit this post).

Okay, just played my first game. A couple things...

1. I couldn't actually buy units, it was just doing it for me.
2. Fighting would hang up now and then, causing me to re-click on where I wanted to attack while zoomed in with battle animations.
3. I have a feeling most of the strategy involved is with the upgraded units, but like I said I couldn't buy them so I felt like it was just clicking around a lot.
4. I absolutely creamed two opponents. It was far too easy.

Over all I like the idea of the game. How different will the races be?

Hi Bryan,

Thanks for checking out the game! I'll check out those bugs you mentioned. By default, it assumes you want to spend all your income on troops. That will be explained in the tutorial (which I haven't written yet).

The AI is very basic at the minute - it's really just for testing and is totally random, so there's no brains there at the moment.

I'll let you know when a new build is available!

Thanks for trying it out.

Cheers,

Dean.
