We've reached the next stage of Guncraft's beta! Registration is now open to everyone!! Just click the register button, follow the steps, and you'll be sent a code and link to the build.
If you enjoy the game, we do recommend pre-ordering. You'll get a discounted price as well as an awesome, exclusive DLC pack, called the Cubetron set. It includes a unique tileset, model skin, and weapon skin so you can make your own Cubetron style levels.
So Block and Load everyone! We'll see you on the battlefield!
Guncraft beta is live and kicking! Check your email for your beta invites.
Also, pre-orders are now being taken through Paypal. If you pre-order the game, you will get priority access to the beta as well as some other perks we have yet to announce (it will be an exclusive texture and character pack). Priority access means you get pushed to the front of the line, behind other people who pre-ordered. When new waves of invites are ready to go out, you'll have first dibs on those keys. So if you want to get your Guncraft fix now, pre-order!
Block & Load!
Sorry for the lack of updates (I'm better at updating Twitter and Facebook). Anyway, we just launched the soft launch of our closed beta to all of our Kickstarter backers. The real launch is coming very soon though. Check out our Guncraft Beta Launch Trailer for the date it will be coming out. We are also parodying a certain game that everyone likes to compare us to. Don't forget to sign up for beta if you haven't already. Otherwise you won't get to play. We will be opening up pre-orders for the game soon that come with special benefits. One of which is priority access to the beta. You get to skip the line!
Like the title says, closed beta registration is now open. If you can't pledge to our Kickstarter, then sign up here and we will fill any remaining slots with randomly selected beta applicants. We will be doing it in waves, so we don't overload the servers. If you want to guarantee yourself access to the beta, be sure to pledge $15 or more to our Kickstarter (which will also get you the game).
Also, check out the new site. We prettified it up with new graphics and made our private alpha forum public so you can at least see how progress is going by reading our posts there.
See you on the battlefield!
Sorry guys, but we can't accept anymore Alpha testing applicants. We got an overwhelming demand when we launched our Kickstarter and we just can't support all of you at this stage in development.
If you pledge to our Kickstarter (tinyurl.com/GuncraftKickstarter), you will be guaranteed a slot in our closed beta that will be launched in late March, early April.
Thanks for all your support and please don't forget to pledge, if you can, to our Kickstarter. Lots of awesome rewards and the chance to be a true supporter to our cause =).
This is just a quick post to give you bigger images of the rewards we are offering for Guncraft. Be sure to check out the Kickstarter here and make a purchase! It all helps in getting this game created.
P.S. I will update with the Physical copy design preview when it is finished.
Check out our kickstarter HERE. After many long hours and intense days, we finally launched our Kickstarter. Included are TWO new trailers, one of which has a little gameplay footage!
Anyway, go check it out. There are a ton of cool rewards (which I will update on the website later with bigger images) for our awesome backers and we really think you'll like it.
Don't forget to retweet, share, post, or whatever to your friends and followers! Every little bit helps!
Check out our new map, Home Alone Guncraft: Home Alone Time Lapse.
It was inspired by Toy Story and how the toys would come to life when people weren't around. In this case, the toys are the Guncraft soldiers. Hope you enjoy!
This post is almost a week late, but if you haven't been keeping up with our Facebook or Twitter, this is news to you! We've officially launched our semi-private alpha testing program. If you are interested in helping out, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll add you onto the list. See you online!
So this is it! Our big holiday announcement!
Guncraft is our new project. Progenitor has been quite the prolonged experience for us here at EGS, so we made a hard, executive decision to put it on hold while we work on something more manageable and to be honest, this game has created more fun in the office than Progenitor ever did. We are extremely excited about Guncraft and we really hope you guys enjoy it as much as we have been. You might be thinking "Well how am I supposed to enjoy it if you won't let me play it now?" Well simple. We have an Alpha and Beta program coming VERY soon. Alpha will start in early January, beta will start in late January, early February.
The difference between Alpha and Beta will be that Alpha is going to be a lot more rough around the edges with some lag and bugs (hopefully minor if we did our job right, but we can't stress test with only 4 computers), but we will compensate with freebies/rewards to those of you who give us useful feedback. Both Alpha and Beta will be free to enter into to, but both will be very limited and Beta invites will be favored for those of you who pre-order the game.
We have two more big announcements (besides all the features we will be announcing as time progresses) coming in early January as well. I will just say as a hint to one that it will be a great way to really get a piece of Guncraft for yourself. We really want to reward you guys for being awesome, so keep checking back for more updates on that. The other you will just have to wait and see about. I will hopefully have one gameplay update for you by the end of the week, but we will see, since we are very busy getting things ready for Alpha.
Lastly, the official forum will be launched when alpha starts, so you'll have somewhere to talk bugs, balance, troll, or anything really.
Seriously, thank you guys for the positive feedback we've gotten for our pre-reveal "leak." It's very nice to see people so interested in playing the game even though you know very little about the specific details.
