Palia, the upcoming self-described "cozy and welcoming" MMO, is entering its alpha and the developers are ready to start getting more players in to test the game. As such, alpha invites should start trickling out to lucky players eager to check out the MMO's world.

While this isn't the first time players have been invited to test Palia, moving into the alpha stage of development is a significant milestone for the studio. Invites should start going out today, according to a new devblog announcing the alpha. For those who signed up and are looking for their invite, should you be chosen for this first round of testing you should keep an eye on your inbox until at least next Wednesday, according to a follow-up tweet by the team.

"The vistas and valleys of Palia will soon be ready to explore once again as we begin preparations for our Alpha!Kilima Village and its local shops are now ready to welcome more players. We’ve grown more trees and wildflowers, added more critters and mountains, and planted many seeds of adventures to come. All of this is to make sure that we’re able to play our role as a warm and welcoming host to our cozy community. 

We’re ready to take a big step into our next phase of development. Starting today, we’ll be sending out limited invites to people we’ve selected to participate, mostly those who have signed up on our website."

The dev team at Singularity 6 have detailed some of what they are hoping to learn during these alpha tests, including interactions with villagers, how the MMO overall feels and whether it successfully leans into its cozy vibe, home decorating and much more. 

You can learn more on the Palia website. This won't be the only test, so the team is recommending those who still want a chance to get in to keep signing up at their website. Palia's developers also tease that despite the alpha starting, regular sneak peaks and updates will continue to be shared with the community, so those of us on the outside looking in can still see a glimpse of what is to come.
