Testing is one of the most important parts of video game development. Because you may have a game “completed” but if you don’t test it out, there will be bugs that will weigh your title down, and players and critics will notice. That’s why teams go to sometimes extreme lengths to make sure everything goes smoothly. One of those ways is through Steam Early Access, which lets players test early builds of the game and offer feedback so that it gets better. A new shooter called Neurowake is about to enter that, but they have one thing they want to do first.
You see, though they’re going into Steam Early Access, they want to make sure that the servers for the game, specifically in the US, are up to snuff right away. They don’t want to deal with server issues when they should be dealing with gameplay issues. So, they’re asking for volunteers for a special closed beta. They’re looking for 50 people who not only are willing to play the game, but have the equipment to play it now. Meaning, you have a VR headset, as Neurowake was built for the Vive.
If you are interested, and want to help them out, you can email them at [email protected] Along with your name, you need to give them the specifications about your computer, as well as what VR headset you have, that way they know they’re picking people who can actually play the title. The team will look over all applicants and pick their selections by emailing then by July 3rd.
As for what Neurowake is, it’s an FPS shooter set on a futuristic world, where you will play as one of 5 heroes (so far) who are trying to fight for the peace of their world. The game boasts fast-paced gameplay, and three modes to start off with. With each hero having unique skills and weapons, this will be a deep VR experience.
