I'm happy to announce that the first Pre-Alpha Testing Invites will be sent out this month in groups, starting on July 6th. If you're interested in participating, please sign-up for my newsletter--testers will be selected randomly from there in groups, to keep things manageable.
I couldn't afford a double-verification email system, so please whitelist my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or search your spam folder periodically in case the invite ends up there. Once you reply to an email it will be whitelisted automatically, or you can do it manually using these simple instructions.
The first time you open the application, I recommend taking a look at the Settings menu and adjusting so everything runs smoothly on your computer. Things like Screen Resolution and V-Sync can have the biggest impact on performance (besides the standard Quality settings slider bar). You can also check the "Show FPS" box to help you out.
This first build includes John and Jimmy on their Golden Goose bicycle, and a dozen tracks to play in Happy Valley, so it should give y'all a good taste of things to come!
I'm both nervous and excited to see what this next stage of development holds, and what you all think of the game so far.
