Default Beta testers wanted for Ogre video game

Hello everyone!

Jake here! Iím the Community Manager at Auroch Digital, the studio behind the upcoming video game adaptation of Ogre.

Things are coming along really well with the development of the game and weíve reached a point where we need YOUR input: beta testing!

In a beta test, we provide you with an unreleased version of the game to take out for a spin - try out the systems weíve implemented, see what weíve built - and then you give us feedback. You might encounter the odd bug here or there, so weíll expect you to send us bug reports as well.

Itís an exciting opportunity to see a game before itís released, as well as providing meaningful criticism to help shape this very special digital adaptation of Ogre.

Want to get involved?
Fantastic. Please read the following instructions carefully...

With your application to become an official Ogre beta tester, itís crucial that you tell us:
  • Your full name.
  • Which Ogre games (and related expansions) youíve played.
  • How long, in years, youíve been playing Ogre.
  • The last three video games you played.
  • Which platforms (Mac, PlayStation 4, Android tablet, etc.) you currently own and regularly use for gaming.
  • Which Ogre unit is your favorite (Mark IV, G.E.V.s, Infantry, etc) and why.

Send all of that information to us via our sign up form by the closing date of September 6th at 5PM UK time and weíll be in touch some time after that date via e-mail to let you know if youíve been chosen.

Please note:
  • To participate in this beta you must have Steam, on a Windows PC, running Windows 7 or later.
  • Application to the beta does not guarantee that you will be accepted into the beta program and we have the right to revoke access to it at any time, either on an individual or group basis. Access to the beta does not include access to the full game when it is released on Steam, so if you wish to continue playing after the beta ends youíll need to purchase the game.
  • No screenshots, video footage, or written editorial of this beta may be shared publicly online or in print. The reason for this is simple: things could change quite dramatically between beta and release and we donít want anyone outside of this beta to see an unrepresentative version of the game. (If youíre a YouTuber, streamer, or blogger, please get in touch with me via e-mail to ensure youíre first in line for preview and review builds.)
  • The game is very much in development and you should be aware that going into the beta program is an active part of that development. We will expect testers to answer questions and send us information when requested. If you donít want to do those things then this beta isnít for you.
  • Applying for the beta will also automatically sign you up for the Auroch Digital newsletter. Itís completely free and you can opt out at any time.

Got all that? Ace! Any questions about joining the beta? Feel free to e-mail me or post them here.

Thanks!

Jake

Of course I'm in! You'd have to chase me away with a stick. A *big* stick.
