Space Mercs – Linux Beta on the 20th of May

Hello mercenary Giants!

We’re going to do a Beta test for the game on the 20th of May on our Discord Server! The game is shaping up for release and I want to make sure it’s in the best shape possible – and that includes the game’s feel.

Just like I did with Ebony Spire‘s launch, the game will be in beta until it’s deemed complete. That means we’re going to do rolling betas: Release 1, get feedback and bug reports -> fix them -> release another one. Repeat until complete.

That being said the game might receive drastic changes while in beta – from flight mechanics to weapons use to balancing. Ebony Spire got 2 new enemies during the beta and an entire set of new items in the world map. IIRC I even threw some procedural generation in it before launch at the players behest.

But in order to avoid being overwhelmed with all the suggestions I’m also unlocking features throughout the Beta period. That means, the first few releases will only feature the Quick Battle mode – the action packed core of the game. I’m interested in how do you guys like the “Feel” of the game! Once that is nailed more features like the Campaign and post-game mode will unlock.

But that’s enough talk, here’s a quick gameplay trailer I made for the Beta. And, as an added bonus, the footage was recorded on a 8 year old laptop with an Intel HD4000 integrated graphics card so It’s safe to say: Performance should be top-notch. Lowspec Linux gamers – this bearded giant’s got you taken care off!

How do you join the beta? Hop up on Discord and fill out the form. Depending on your system specs we might give you Beta access. Want to make sure you’re in the Beta? Become our Patron because your support is really needed!

Fly safe, Giants!
