Before people groan, progress on Elemental continues across the board besides just the “game” aspect (if there are any developers reading this feel free to explain to non-developers what I mean).
Anyway, Beta 1Z2 that went up yesterday is much better than Z1 was in terms of stability and such but it’s not quite there yet.
Namely, the stuck turns and saved games need to be addressed more. There are still reports of crashes but memory and stability seem to be adequate to proceed.
I don’t have an exact date of z3 yet but hopefully in the next week or so.
Sorry to be such a stickler here. We’re not trying to be perfectionists. We just want to make sure we produce the best possible game we can.
One other thing to note: Be wary about getting invested in the gameplay. There are already debates on various balance things. While the underpinnings are there, we expect to make a lot of radical changes between now and release. So if you’re having fun with the beta, please don’t get too attached to anything.
