All beta testing discussion is carried out over Discord, so if you are interested, please make sure you have Discord downloaded on your PC or mobile.
Accepting applications over the weekend and then we’ll choose our testers during the following week.
We want to make sure there are some fresh testers with each update, and some old testers may be invited to participate again. We always endeavour to reply to everyone, whether accepted or not, but if you don’t hear back we apologise and you haven’t been chosen for this round of the beta program.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Please be aware that at this time the beta is only open to Steam players .
I consider beta feedback as advance notice of how the larger community will react to the new features/changes. You have to keep in mind the beta happens when most of the work has already been done and the update is close. It’s too late in the process to get much more than minor tweaks through.
I’d recommend trying it out, once. It’s an interesting peek into the kitchen
But what’s the point? If it’s just for knowing a few weeks ahead what feature has already been set in stone to hit the fan next, why bother? I’d rather let myself get surprised than participate in some marketing show.
From my experience (keep in mind I wasn’t a huge contributor), small stuff like typos or missing graphics and such are fairly likely to be fixed, while major disagreements on key features (such as GAP being completely OP upon release) will not be changed.
@gary_dils was the biggest contributor for the beta I was part of and may have more to say about the experience. To be fair though, I think the same things get said every time a beta thread comes up.
