Just to keep everyone updated. I'm collecting the messages of those who have expressed interest, but as of yet, I've not done anything with them. :) So, don't take a lack of response to mean anything. I mention this because I've gotten a few "I'm not sure if you got my first message" messages. :)

Yep, I got 'em.

Also, I've gotten enough messages that I'm probably not going to be able to respond to each one, unless and until I send you the info for how to access the Alpha. Just FYI . :)

My semester is ending shortly and I won't even really be available for playing this for another week or two anyhow, so I shall eagerly await the beta!

Guys, I'm confused. According to *this* http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,11943.0.html the beta is going to start around now. Are you going to run alpha and beta in parallel, with alpha being more bleeding edge build? I think I'm missing something...

Arcen is going to run a limited, short final alpha test phase for about a week or so. Once that's over the beta will start.

Jokes on you - The private alpha has been running for two weeks already. This is merely a ploy to get people to think that the alpha was open and/or later.

Its an amazing game, by the way. Youre going to love it. The way the new spell upgrade system works, in combination with the armor materials, really adds to the replayability and first-run play at the same time. Also, the procedurally generated.. well, everything, feels really well done.

Got to admit, its the worst joke Arcen's ever done.

Boy I showed up late to the party.

Anyway, I'll throw my name into the hat. Having been a part of quashing a couple bugs in AVWW1, I wouldn't mind doing it in AVWW2 as well.

No external testing of any kind has started yet. We're a bit behind schedule, which is why the beta hasn't started yet. The Alpha is going to start probably early next week. (I really don't see it starting today). After a short alpha period, we'll have a public beta. :)

If anyone missed it, Lancefighter is the one who was pulling your leg here. As josh has said, no external testing of any kind has started yet. We wouldn't pull a "joke" like that!

@Lancefighter: as the absurd becomes normal, satire becomes difficult.

Can I give my first impressions?

I'll be honest, fellas, it's sounding great  but... it could use a few more slices.

It can always use more slices. But, perhaps what it really needs is more cowbell? I should talk to Pablo about that. :)
