Alpha launch day!

October 31st, 2014

We have finally released our closed alpha!

First off, we would like to thank everyone participating in the alpha to help us make this game the best it can be. We can’t wait to hear your feedback! So what has happened since our previous blog post?

We went to Firstlook (a Dutch gaming expo) where we showed our game. We received great responses and feedback, and we also found a lot of bugs that needed fixing. We had fun doing it though, and I’m proud to tell you that we’ve managed to fix all of them (we think)! It’s been some long days for us here at Vogelsap HQ, but with the release of the alpha today we created something of which we are proud to show to you and the public. Last week we were especially tired, but luckily the fire alarm went off to keep us awake.

Also: our forums are now online! We’ve already talked to some of the alpha testers there, but we’d love for more people to join the discussion. At the moment we’re creating a new trailer. A short clip of the trailer, in which you can see the Carrier charging an optional objective can be seen below!

Anyhow, you can see the results of our hard work in the alpha itself. We’re very much looking forward seeing all of you enjoy what The Flock offers so far. For those who don’t have an alpha key yet, you can still sign up as we plan on expanding access over the remaining weekends. Or, if you happen to have a friend who does have alpha access, he/she will receive an extra two keys right before the next weekend. So you might want to start nagging.

See you online!
