Open Beta 2

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007 by oxeye

The second open beta test of “Harvest: Massive Encounter” has started! The open beta allows you to get a sneak-peek on the game before it is released, as well as to help us sort out any problems that may still be present.

Download the game from the download page!

If you have comments, suggestions, bug reports or simply wish to speak to other players or the developers, there are several ways to reach us! You can either post in our forums, or you can join us using an IRC chat client. The main channel is called #harvestbeta on the QuakeNet network, but we also reside in #harvest at EsperNet.

Another way to contribute is to join the A Massive Encounter Facebook group.

In any case, have fun! The beta lasts until March next year!

Harvest in First Step of IGF

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007 by oxeye

Harvest: Massive Encounter is present – with over 170 other participants – in the list of games competing in the Independent Games Festival. The quality of the games submitted is really high, but we hope that the judges will find our gem in the pile! If we are lucky the game will be nominated for one or more of the prizes, and invited to the finals in San Francisco next year. These nominations are announced in December.

Until then, wish us luck in the forums or #harvestbeta at QuakeNet, and check out the full list of competitors here:
