Looks good so far. I'm wondering when you'll get a letter from lawyers telling you to change the name.
While "alpha release" still seems like an oxymoron to me, kudos for not selling the alpha.
Hi guys, we already opened the server and the alpha is underway! If you've already received a key, be sure to join in the test and offer us feedback; if you haven't, you still have various ways to get a key 1) Subscribe to our newsletters; 2)Try to snatch one from our partner sites, 3)Purchased a Collaborator Pack and get a guaranteed key.

In my initial attempts to get the game going, the game screen did not size to my desktop, and the initial intro quest wouldn't fire off. Character customization at this point is...low. Obviously, can't say much more about things.

Gear up everyone! The final Alpha weekend for City of Steam will be open in just a matter of hours. If you missed out on a chance to play the game in our previous three weekends but interested in testing it out, check out our partner sites to get a key. If you've received a key already, activate it. If already activated too, well, all that's left is waiting... Alpha starts soon!!
Just took a look at the City of Steam site and some of the screenshots look quite nice. However the main thing that struck me (first impressions and all that) was the artwork for the various races on the Alpha is Almost Here! blog post. How disappointing! For a self-proclaimed steampunk game, this seems to have the same generic overmuscled, oversexualised character design that infests fantasy. The right-most humans look like strippers, the anime goblins are incongruous with the other races, but worst of all: all females have either oversized chests or impractical armour. Some of the male characters even have unnecessarily low-cut tops!
Really, I'm getting sick of seeing this ridiculous cleavage-centric girl-armour. CrazyEthan, any chance of taking steps to pioneer non-sexist, adolescent-male pandering clothing for your female characters? It'd be a refreshing change to the fantasy genre.
We just put up some new dev journals, here's your chance to get a closer look at some cool Ratling animations in Unity, backstories of the charming but manipulative Rivens and a wrapup for all available classes in City of Steam now. Any thoughts?

Last chance for supporting City of Steam guys! The closing date of all Alpha Supporter Packs is pretty close now; to those who've been keeping track of City of Steam, don't miss the chance of being an honorable supporter for this game while receiving some amazing CoS swag at the same time!
