Another crunch time is gone as we hit our commercial Alpha version on Monday (Dec 4th). For those of you who saw or read about our old prototype, some major changes were introduced since then: we migrated from Flash to Java, we enhanced our licensed content significantly (news footage, images and text) and introduced some new design ideas based on players’ feedback. As an example, the rendered map of the region is currently location-based with 20 different cities representing the two sides.
The next milestone is obviously Beta. FYI we have decided to run controlled and focused tests locally rather than distribute copies. For those of you who kindly volunteered to help – if you happen to be in the Pittsburgh area please let us know.
