Play Das Tal’s alpha for free right now

    
17

You’d never buy a car without test-driving it, would you? If only that applied to games and you could take Das Tal for a spin before sinking your support into its Kickstarter… Oh wait, you can! Fairytale Distillery wants players to see what they are supporting so the studio has opened the alpha servers for one day. That means for 24 hours anyone can jump in and experience a taste of that this open PvP sandbox has to offer, and that time is right now.

To play, just download the client and use the key free4all. The dev team is also communicating directly with players during the playtests, so it invites folks to also join their teamspeak server. If you happen to like what you see once you play, Das Tal recently added a less expensive backer tier. But you’d have to hurry; the Kickstarter ends the same time the alpha doors close — at 9:00 a.m. EDT, Wednesday, June 10th.

If you can’t personally take advantage of this alpha offer, we’ve got you covered: The Stream Team will be jumping in and sharing the experience with you this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. on OPTV!

samruck if ninjas still get broken abilities like full invisibility, then you’ll still get stabbed in the back.

playerxx you realize that this game is backed by Square Enix right, you can call it “indie” if you want, but there’s nothing “indie” about having one of gamings biggest giants looking over your shoulder.

playerxx  No, we should invest in games that actually interest us.  The fact that it’s “indie” doesn’t make it auto-fundable.  The market is speaking – but teams like this still aren’t getting the message.  Better that a game like this falls hard so others won’t delude themselves as to the size of the market.
and, FWIW, Blizzard was started by three fresh college grads without the help of my money – or yours.

Ok, I tried it, liked it backed it :) I couldn’t figure out what the objectives were, but the combat felt very good – kind of Diablo II style, but more refined. I hope the final game features procedurally generated maps and some survival mechanics, like Don’t Starve. I also think they should have opened the Alpha test earlier; it would have given them a higher chance of funding it.

Sure, lets not fund indie games like this. We should just all invest the money in a big as… company like Blizz that made a mmo 11 years ago and now they still live from it.

And don’t give me that:’ but they made a card mmo’. Really?

If you ask me, I rather have a top down pvp game then a 3rd person or first person pvp game. Why? Because that way there won’t be some ninja that backstabbs me. I will see him now!

No biggie. :)
I misread this stuff all the time and have to go back and correct my posts.
Sometimes, I miss the 6min window and have to repost.
Oh well.

Drabbad  I think its more of a conceptual stage sort of thing rather than anywhere close to a finished alpha.

Think of it like a house: Right now, this is just the foundation. There is no walks or plumbing or electricity yet. Just some concrete. Its not meant to be lived in in its current state.

Don’t take this as me defending it, I mean its barely playable and not really my kind of thing at all. I’m not even sure I’d call it an MMO at the moment.

Too little too late, brutal, but honest.
