Aaaaaaaaand Away We Go!
Ladies and Gentlemen and Miscellaneous Humanoids of all Types,
It is my great pleasure to announce that we are beginning the formal Alpha Test of Pathfinder Online.
Live Stream of Alpha Play with the Goblinworks Staff
Tomorrow, Friday the 27th, at 3pm Pacific Time, we’ll be hosting a live stream on Twitch of the Goblinworks staff playing the Alpha and talking about various features and systems that are in the game. We will be live streaming on twitch.tv/goblinworks. You can access this stream via the Twitch website, or you can install the iOS or Android app for Twitch and view it on any internet-connected device.
This will be a great opportunity to see the Alpha and to hear our thoughts about what is working, what is not yet implemented, and what you can do in the Alpha.
We know that a lot of people have sky-high expectations for Pathfinder Online, and we want to use this broadcast as a way show the community for where we’re at and where we’re going.
We will of course be supporting PaizoCon this year. Like last year we’re going to take over the small banquet room near Registration and the hotel restaurant. Our plan is to have 4 demo stations running the game live on the Alpha server during the show.
We’d like to invite you to bring your laptop to the banquet room and play the Alpha on your hardware! We will have a USB drive to install the client software and we’ll have demo accounts that we can use to log the game in on your machine. You’ll need to have Administrator access credentials to enable the software to be installed and the client will require Windows 7 or Windows 8 (We’re willing to give Windows Vista a shot too!) Sorry, no Windows XP or Mac OSX availability at this time.
We will ask players to rotate out of the room (and we’ll log you out of the server when you leave) if space becomes limited so that everyone who wants a chance to play will get one.
We will also be giving a 1 hour panel presentation on the state of the game and taking questions from the audience at 3pm (Pacific). We are going to shoot for a half-hour of presentation and a half-hour of Q&A.
