Closed testing sign-up

EDIT: The closed alpha testing has already started, and unfortunately we won’t be taking in any more testing applications. We were very happy to see so much interest and want to thank everyone who wrote to us. We believe we found a solid testing team and we also heard more praise and encouragement in your letters than we could have imagined! We hope you stay tuned to our news as we move closer to our release date. We are always happy to hear your thoughts.

Hello everyone!

It’s finally time for that rumored closed testing round of the Steam version of Barotrauma. Our official release into Early Access is just around the corner now, so first a quick reminder to please wishlist us:

Steam Wishlist banner

Now, to make sure everything is in its right place when we hit the Publish button (aiming for the end of March!), we are going to give you the chance to try the game in advance and help us steer the development in the right direction. To that end, we will give out 100 Steam keys for a closed testing phase starting in about a week from now. If you want to be one of those 100, please write a brief introduction telling us

  • your name and who you are as well as any existing nicknames on our Discord or forums
  • why you would make a good tester
  • if you have played Barotrauma before
  • where you found out about our closed testing round (Discord/Youtube/Twitter/Reddit/Facebook/Other – what?).

Then just send those couple of lines by email to [EDIT: the signup period has ended]. We are asking these questions to make sure we get different kinds of people to participate and help us make the game enjoyable for both beginners and those who have been contributing from the early days. Sign up as soon as you can, as spots are limited and time is short – we’d like to get the bulk of the feedback within one month. We will not use your email for marketing or anything other than this closed testing round.

If you are chosen, we’ll send you more detailed instructions about feedback and reporting in a return email. The reporting won’t be difficult, because we really need you to do it – so everyone, thanks in advance!

    Меня зовут Родион, 17 (скоро 18) лет, увлекаюсь видео-играми. Играю в barotrauma примерно с 0.7 версии. О игре я узнал на сайте, позже нашел русскоязычную группу в ВК, и следил за игрой от туда. Думаю я могу быть хорошим бета-тестером, я часто играю в видео-игры и буду присылать вам отчеты об ошибках. Мой ник в Дискорд – RodionToP(Родион)#6199 .

    In Multiplayer There should Be A function Called “Random Name Generator” So When you click it it will generate a random name so players wont think so hard for making a name, this could be good For RP servers also. The Husks with the Diving Suit Should Be slow because they are fast than humans wearing a Diving suit, There should be a Voice Call Button so players can talk with each other in-game so people mostly dont need to open up Discord before playing (I cant think much of an idea left probably most of the people world wide have their ideas better than this anyways this is just a comment i hope this game will be get the steam awards and always stay Fresh)

    Hello, I hope you need to write about testing, the translation will be a bit clumsy because it is translated from Google translator, I want as you understand the key to the closed test, if you give me the key, I would rate this game and start recommending the game to many I will tell a lot to people that a person will definitely need to buy it, I play right now alone, with friends and I always play for fun, playing on my list of my favorite games, I think that you should write me questions that I should answer about the test and if they accept me, I wait in Sheha and answer questions, my nickname in Discord Слоняндр#0115, My email [email protected]

    Aww man, that’s really sad that applications are closed. I honestly had no idea this was a thing until today. I would’ve totally applied and played the heck out of this because I’ve been waiting to see what the new version is like and how many of my absurd amount of ideas have been implemented. Anyways, I’m super hyped for this to come out and I love your guys’ work. Ps. Regalis, were you ever involved in the making of SCP Containment Breach and how come it’s been so long since Undertow has made a new game?
