Newsletter - A Tale in the Desert -

A Tale in the Desert III beta is going to be going live today. Read the latest info on this game in their newsletter below! Read more about A Tale in the Desert, here.

Citizens of Egypt,

I'm really excited to finally be able to announce the Beta Test for A Tale in the Desert III:

A Tale in the Desert I had a frantic pace early on. Most technologies were fully player-unlockable, and so it was a race to open as many per region as possible, and a race to learn as many skills as possible, and to build everything. Not surprisingly, burnout was the overwhelming reason for people leaving the game.

A Tale in the Desert II attempted to enforce a more moderate pace. Though some people felt they couldn't keep up, just as many left due to wanting to play faster.

I don't think it's possible for a Tale to be slow and fast at the same time, and I think the faster pace was more fun. So, the plan for ATITD 3 is fast paced. I'll give plenty of "Pace Yourself" warnings, but the game won't try to enforce it.

The notion of player-unlockable content has even been expanded: At release we should have 28 Tests (plus the 7 Initiations) unlockable. We'll have somewhat fewer than that at the start of Beta. To unlock a Test, visit the appropriate University, and (for instance) "Petition for the Test of the Acrobat." You will be told:
