I believe I own and have long played all of your titles, enjoyed most more than I should have and hope to enjoy many more. I'd be very interested in joining in at any available opportunity.

I also have at least one copy of all Arcen titles, so if you need a tester I'm willing to give it a go.  I'll buy it either way though :)

Just so folks know, I am noting everyone down, even though I don't respond on every post.  Thanks! :)

I've been following the development for some time now and it looks like it will be a great game once the polishing is done. I'm willing to help you out in any alpha round if needed. Otherwise, preorder and beta access would be fine, too.  ;)

I've got some free time in the near future, so i'd be happy to test this game.  I've played AI War a lot and hope I can give helpful feedback.

Very excited for The Last Federation for a while now (trumps many upcoming titles/expansions/dlcs for me). I aimed to join the fun at the earliest public release (preorders as usual?), but I keep lurking these forums and your blog posts (you keep teasing me with "Alpha Information!" in those). I don't generally bother people with feedback in game testing, as those are usually more of a publicity stunt than I'd like. Yet, you guys are awesome. Lurked for years, love you, know how you roll and respect you for it. Would love to provide feedback to you guys.

The game concept is very intriguing to me, and i have always loved the simulation games.

I have been unsure if i have time to playtest the game, which is why i did not "sign up" for the test early. But i think i got enough spare time in the coming weeks to justify signing up. So... yeah.

i thought i already signed up, well... sent a pm to tigersfan way back. but not sure if that counts or i need to sign up here. or even with so many people if you still need me. anyway, if you do need another person i would love to be a part of this.  :)  thanks for considering me.

Sign me up for all of it :) I love testing Arcen games, especially if it's another space game. I love what I have seen so far, so dying to see it with my own hands and eyes :)

Wish I signed up sooner! I love testing new games, I still can't get enough of the bug hunting and feedback. If it worth anything I do have professional experience in testing video games, so expect nice clean and easy to read bug reports :) and hopefully frequently!

I am interested in testing the game.  I am open to any round that is available.  It isn't my first time and I'm fine with any.

Updating alpha request, for rounds. Prefer Round 2 the most, followed by Round 1, followed by Round 3.

I'd like to see and comment on things before final polish, anyway, and am really excited about this game. Haven't tested any Arcen games before, but I've played AI War, Valley Without Wind(both versions) and Skyward Collapse.

Just as a note, I have everyone down from before this post.  That includes you, Teal!  And everyone who PM'd tigersfan.  We have about 111 people in total on the list of alpha testers, and I think we've so far let in about 30ish, so we're really spreading things out in terms of letting people in slowly.  This helps us managing the volume of feedback we get, and of course getting waves of first impressions is really important.

So that's why I'm not on this list.

Yep, I just did an exact count, and we have 109 people signed up, 52 people not yet added, and (as of yesterday) 57 in.  When I claimed we had 30ish, looks like we actually had 46.  So I was in the ballpark. ;)

Some of our most experienced previous alpha testers have not been added in yet (hi madcow and nas1m and chemical_art and Wingflier and Penumbra and Shrugging Khan, among others), because we're trying to spread both new people and experienced mantisers throughout the entire process.  We only get one shot at your first impression! :)
