Sci-fi Project C puts out a call for pre-alpha testers, but getting in won’t be easy

The as-of-yet unnamed Project C isn’t letting the lack of a moniker stop it from cultivating a playerbase. In fact, Darewise Entertainment is putting out a call for pre-alpha testers to put this “massively multiplayer persistent open world” title through its paces. Seems like we should come up with an acronym for that or something.

Getting into this test will be a little more difficult than putting your email into a field: “Project C is being developed to give gamers a persistent open-world multiplayer experience where they can team up to join clans, build societies and explore an abandoned planet. The world of Corvus will be the centerpiece of the game’s development, a world rich with exotic wildlife, resources and powerful technology. This is not a typical play test. Interested players must take a survey and once approved, will go through an onboarding process that includes a live video chat with a member of the Darewise development team.”

If you’re interested, you can start this rigorous process on the official website. The team said that it doesn’t have a release date but “sees this first play test as the start of an extensive, community-focused series of tests and updates.”

Project C is being built by a self-proclaimed “all-star team of development talent” and is using the SpatialOS development platform. The game is “a persistent open-world multiplayer online game where players join clans and build societies on an abandoned planet brimming with wildlife, fascinating technology and adventure.”

Hahaha,

If a developer wants to interview me like that to help test a game they should go all the way and pay me.

If it wasn’t clear already that a lot of payed work is being handled by players already on a voluntary basis this should make it clear enough.

Though I can see where they are going with this. It sure is a “good” way to create a group of die hards that will market the game free of charge as well.

With the other info available surrounding the who and what, I’m going to graciously decline

Need more info. Is this an open world pvp/survival game like everything else coming down the pipe? Or is this different? I don’t want to commit to spending time with something that I won’t have any interest in to begin with.

So will this be a game friendly to those with hearing impairment? A live video chat just to enter a beta suggests otherwise but I could be wrong.

Their sign up doesn’t even work, lol. Never ending circle of logging in after creating an account, clicking the dismiss button on the pop up notification, and then your logged out again. I’m impressed already.

Just click Apply on the page then log in. Worked for me fine.

You are right Alomar, we have tasked a company to develop and publish our Project C website.
They had a fairly short time to set it up, and the result didn’t really handle the high load apparently!
This is also obviously just a simple portal website for our closed pre-alpha testing phase so it will improve on time.
Cheers!

Perhaps you would care to explain what happened to Rokh?

For a real eye opener look up on Steam the last game they helped publish, a Martian survival title called Rokh.

Appears ill received and abandoned back in July 2017 due to a lack of funds, servers are reportedly offline now. Web pages are broken, endlessly cycling screen shots and appear to have been “scrubbed” of staff information.

While actually developed by nVizzo it appears likely some folks who worked on Rokh are involved in this project, but the tracks are being well covered.
