Runestone Game Development, the people responsible for the upcoming MMORPG, Seed, has announced that their beta test got off the ground today.
Aarhus, Denmark – February 1, 2006 – Runestone Game Development announced today that the first beta test phase has started for Seed, the premiere genre-shattering massively multiplayer game slated for release in April 2006.
“We’re excited to let our first round of testers into Seed,” said Lars Kroll Kristensen, CEO of Runestone Game Development. “Their input will be invaluable as we move forward with polishing and fine tuning some of Seed’s elements to make an awesome game play experience.”
At 11:00 a.m. GMT, the first 500 testers will be able to log into the colony tower of planet Da Vinci. As colonists inhabiting a rampaged, mile-high tower they will be the first to have to figure out how to ensure the survival of the colony.Keeping with the open-minded approach that Runestone Game Development has taken in discussing ideas and game details of Seed in the past, there will be no Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) for the beta testers to sign.
“We really value the close connection we have with our tight-knit community. Forgoing an NDA
will aid us in receiving input on all kinds of issues, and the community in-turn will truly feel as though they are influencing us in our on-going development of Seed,” continued Kristensen. “It’s a win-win situation.”
There is still plenty of opportunity for players to become testers, with up steadily toward launch, growing the population from the pool of beta applicants and ending with a stress test in March, where the community will be encouraged to come by the thousands to give Seed a try. Applications are being accepted at the official website.
With groundbreaking gameplay powered by next-generation artificial intelligence poured into a rich, comic-book-style 3D world, Seed truly stands out from the crowd. Learn more about this revolutionary MMG and sign up for the beta test by visiting www.seedthegame.com.
