Eador Aid: Second Beta For Masters Of The Broken World


LOOK! I made a pun! That will only make sense to people in the USA! Snowbird Games have announced the second beta test for their fantasy-worldy turn-based strategy thingy.

The lovely mans at Snowbird Games had Eador approved on Greenlight in January, and will be releasing it on Steam, GOG and other digital platforms in April. Alec had a look at it in September, and thought it was a "Fantasy non-linear turn-based strategy game" with unparalleled depth and an in-game karma system that sounds pretty interesting. Besides from it being stunningly beautiful, and set upon shards and shards of little floating regions in the sky, it seems that how you play will have a big impact on the ending of the game too. Cara likes games where the story is sewn up in the mechanics: yummy.

So! You want to take part in the beta?

For those who already participated in the first beta send a mail here with the subject “Eador- Beta (current tester)”. Mention your username on the forums and they’ll send you a key.

If you’re a newcomer to the beta send a mail here with the subject “Eador- Beta (new tester)”.

You will then get to try it out with a new interface for two weeks! By far my favourite thing about Snowbird Games is their sly suggestion, via their website, that they're possibly a bit unorganised, by posting this excellent Python sketch:


Russians are awesome. They also MADE THIS ALMIGHTY VIDEO: BEHOLD THE MIGHTY EADOR

ALL TEXT FROM NOW ON WILL BE IN CAPITALS, DUE TO THE EXTRAORDINARILY LOW VOICE IN THAT VIDEO THAT HAS MADE MY WOMANLY SQUEAK FEEL QUITE INSIGNIFICANT.

I THINK YOU CAN PREORDER THIS GAME, BUT ONLY IN RUSSIA. BUT EVERYONE KNOWS THAT IN RUSSIA GAME PREORDER *YOU*.
