Demigod: BETA 1 Preparation

Published on Monday, September 1, 2008 By Brad Wardell In Demigod

The current plan is get beta 1 out near the end of the week. 

  • Beta 1 is the engine test.  It is not designed to be "fun". 
  • You will be able to play it on the LAN (either against other people on the LAN or agaisnt AI players).
  • If you want to play people over the Internet, we recommend installing Hamachi. We're not officially supporting Hamachi but it should work.
  • The rook, regulus, and the Torch Bearer are the 3 Demigods we are including with it.
  • The waterfall map is the map we're including with it.

What we are looking for is data on how well it performs on your machine, any incompatibilities you run into, any bugs you run into.  We are not looking for game ideas at this point, that will come with beta 2. Obviously, feel free to post game ideas but beta 1 does not really resemble what the final game will be like in any major way.

Reporting feedback:

  1. Make sure you write your reports in the Demigod BETA forum.
  2. Make sure your reports include your hardware configuration and OS (CPU, video card, OS, and sound card are the biggies).

We will be in the #Demigod channel on IRC which you can reach from Impulse.  You can type /join #demigod to get to it.

Good luck!
