25 th February 2002 :: Beta Test Delayed
As you probably already know, Dune Generations has gone alpha since last November. This means that about a hundred players have been testing the game in order to improve it, in preparation for the beta.

Unlike most of the actual online games, Dune Generations offers a truly persistent world; even when you disconnect, the game goes on. This results in a great complexity and implies that a lot of adjustments are necessary before we open the game for a real beta.

The alpha is now coming to an end. The test has allowed us to identify many aspects of the game that still need work. One example is the interfaces, which many players have found to be hard to understand and to use. Redoing these interfaces will require several weeks; therefore, we have decided to delay the opening of the beta until this problem is fixed, in order to provide beta testers with interfaces that are closer to the ones we will use in the final version.

However, we will need more testers for the last phase of the alpha. Some of the players who have registered to become beta testers will receive an invitation to join the alpha in the coming weeks.

Many thanks to all of you for your patience and support!
