Like today soon, I hope....
The closed alpha testing for Guts and Glory has been shut down. I WILL POST A PUBLIC DOWNLOAD LINK LATER TODAY INSTEAD!!!!!!!! :D
(I'm in Mountain Standard Time, BTW)
This has been an exhilarating week!!
Guts and Glory went from being an unknown project to going viral in just a few days. I made a post to Imgur a few days ago looking for a few more pre-alpha testers. Then someone shared it to Reddit. I thought I would get maybe 200 volunteers... instead I got 2,000 in the first couple hours after posting! It quickly grew from there by about 1,000 per day. Tons of requests came in for people wanting to make YouTube videos as well, which seemed to multiply the madness. It was growing so fast I couldn't believe it!! I was like "okay... I can manage this... I got this!"
Then PewDiePie happened.
My email is exploding with more requests than I can probably ever reply to and my newsletter list is filling up crazy fast. THIS IS NUTS!!
As a result, the alpha testing will no longer be closed.
I WILL POST A PUBLIC DOWNLOAD LINK LATER TODAY!!!
You no longer have to wait for an invite (YAY!!). I just need to finish making some improvements to the controls and other bug fixes, setup a better forum, and prepare everything for a whole lot of traffic. As soon as I'm done with that, I will post the download link so anyone and everyone can check it out! My goal is to have all that done TODAY!
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing what everything thinks of the game so far. Feel free to follow me on Twitter, YouTube or my other social medias (see links at the bottom of the page).
