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.
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:
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!
