Valiance Online devs take the alpha client out for a test drive
Early access is for chumps. If you really want to be in on the ground floor, you need to land yourself a spot on the development team so that you can experience early, early access. Of course, that takes years of work, possible relocation, and actual skill, so let's explore the next best thing, which is to watch the devs play the game while you drool a bit in envy.
Speaking of which, the team at Valiance Online is definitely enjoying the game's alpha client, as evidenced by several of the videos posted on the official forums. For the low, low price of clicking a button, you can see these superheroes in action, combat, leveling, the user interface, and other various mechanics.
