Okay, so let me preface this post by saying that the Alpha is not going to be soon.  We are not releasing the Alpha within this month, for sure.  I'm hoping to have an Alpha build ready for play by the end of the Summer.  The Alpha is planned to contain the following:

  • Gamepad Support
  • Up to 4 different Players at once for local multiplayer.
  • At least four characters (more will be added as the Alpha progresses)
  • At least three stages (more will be added as the Alpha progresses)
  • Multiple game modes (Timed, Stock, Kill Limit, and maybe King of the Hill if I feel like adding it in)
  • Possibly a Practice Mode
  • Online Play if I can implement it in time

Now note that there is not a plan for implementing AI logic into the Alpha build.  AI is something I want to tackle at a much later date, once we have the game up and ready for players to play against eachother.  I might throw some drop-dead stupid AI in there just to fiddle around with things, but don't expect competent AI until the late Beta.

The Alpha, while Private, will not require any sort of Non-Disclosure Agreement, as everyone can openly see what is in it.  Meaning there won't be any characters or things Alpha Testers have to keep secret.  Now, with all this said, let's get started!

To sign up for the Alpha, I'd simply like anyone interested to post the reason that you feel makes you deserve Alpha Access.  Are you adept at spotting and isolating bugs and glitches?  Let us know!  Do you have a lot of time to test the game?  Say it!  Do you think you have a knack for helping us balance the game (particularly the SSB characters, since they're the ones who are completely new to the formula)?  Throw it out there!  Slayer and I will be discussing which replies we like the most and who we feel are the best bets to help us ensure quality leading into our Public Beta.

If you don't get accepted this time, don't worry!  We're likely going to expand the Alpha as time goes on, adding more people in with similar sign-ups and possibly random lotteries, so just hang in there if you don't get in!

Lastly, we're currently considering a way to compensate Alpha Testers for their help with the game.  In addition to having a special thanks in the final product's credits, we're working on an in-game bonus for Alpha Testers, though we're not sure what that will be.

With all this said, let the sign-ups begin!  And for the record, any member of Team Axis need not sign up; you'll automatically have the Pre-Alpha starting in the next few weeks.  Of course, Pre-Alpha stuff is top-secret, so you guys have to be quiet about that stuff publicly!

Well this seems interesting, especially considering I will sometimes even BREAK the game to find bugs and s#$@. And since I have nothing else to do Except finish the stupid CPU tournament at P:C, I'll be more than willing to crash test it. (Get it, Crash, haha.)

edit: Balancing Smash Bros. characters will be fun. Cat face

Me please!  I have a lot of time to test the game and would say i'm very good at picking out bugs.  I've noticed when i play games that i have a keen ability of telling when something "feels off" even if i can't pinpoint exactly what it is.  The only thing i have left to say is that i've been super excited about this project since its announcement and PMed Slayer a few weeks ago saying that even though i'm not good with the technical stuff, i'd be happy to help this project in any way i can.

I'm up to it. In almost any game I play I tend to break it through glitches, whether I'm looking for them or not. So it should be easy for me to find them, or rather, them find me... 

And lol, lpool. PACL ranks don't matter, but nice gloating. Haha.

Yes, but Slayer and I never verified if we were doing that for sure. I think we did but I'm not 100% sure.

I'd prefer a more serious response, Thirty. We only have a limited amount of spots planned for the Alpha, and without a legitimate response, your ballot really only gets accepted if we have an extra spot.

Oh, DP, you should know that I'm not a very serious individual Wink

But seeing as I'm at work a lot of the time, and now-knowing that you have limited to give away, it may be best to give my spot to somebody who has more free time on their hands.

We're not picking the Alpha testers just yet, so sign-ups will not close for a little while lol. However, Salvy, as I noted in the OP, we'd like you to explain why you should be chosen for the Alpha, rather than going by random choices out of a hat.

All I can really offer is that glitches have the tendency to find and rape annoy me with games, and I have a lot of free time (and school's about to be over by Friday for me) so that I can deliver constant feedback and updates. I can definitely help out though with seeing how characters are balanced (at least for the Nintendo ones after years of experience playing all three Smash Bros. games).

Well the reason is mainly cause I wanna be the first to know some things and with your permission share what I can to my page but I understand if I don't get picked I cant test everyday I have school and work I can test the longest on Wednesdays Fridays and Sundays.

Well everything about the Alpha will be publicly revealed, but it will only be privately played for a while. So you'll still know, even if you're not accepted into the Alpha, don't worry!

I'm not the most qualified, but I have plenty of time on my hands. I would love to try it out and help by spotting any flaws, bugs, etc.
