Closed Alpha Test Opening

News

flat splash logo

Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th where the two opening days of the Flat Universe Closed Alpha test. Alpha testers from Greece, central and western US joined together and flew multiplayer sessions playing with the latest Alpha 0.9 version of Flat Universe.

For the purpose of testing and measuring the real multiplayer capabilities of Flat Universe, two different servers where setup. The first was located in the Eastern US region and the second in Germany, western Europe.

Dozens of flying sessions that held our attention on our screens for more than an hour, took place successfully in both servers.

One of our testers and as it was proven a very capable flat pilot too, was Defiance Industries. The 3D artist responsible for the creation of the WC IV era Border Worlds fighters.

The second alpha tester, JPS and web designer of the forthcoming updated Flat Universe Web Page after an unlucky experience with his ADSL connection managed to join us the following day playing with untroubled. Most striking was the fact that he was connected from a 4G wireless cellular connection and non of his co-players where able to identify any difference during the in-flight sessions.

The third tester was the Space Game Junkie web-caster himself Brian Rubin who took the opportunity and streamed the first of the opening days on twich.

The Alpha team of Flat Universe will meet again and continue the multiplayer sessions the following weekend.

Next stop. The public release of the Beta version 1. Until then...

Have fun!

Hey,

no worries that's why we have arranged the next week for the closed alpha tests too.
We do not have a discord channel yet but it is in the todo list. Unfortunately not for this weeks tests. However, we have setup for the test period a mumble server. We have emailed you the connection details.
If you haven't received the preparation email don't hesitate to contact with us at care2play@maslasbros.com to send it again.

See you in the Arena!

Hi, any news on the game?

We are really sorry for our long absence from IndieDB. From the start of this year we did make a very long jump with our development progress and since we are only two who are working on it we decided two boost the development and leave the forums aside for while. As a matter of fact in a few days, not allowed to say exact day, the 0.8.5 version will be released.
Therefore we have uploaded some images showing off our enhanced graphics!

We are very sorry for the inconvenience but it was for the projects greater good.

Stay tuned!

Do you plan to make the spaceship be controlled with the mouse? (At least the aiming, the throttle could be controlled by keyboard)

As a matter of fact, mouse wasn't in our spectrum of input devices but the space-flight module of the game is built in a way that we can implement it very easily.
We'll give it as an option in the next update and you could give feedback to us.
