Basilisk Games Asking For Eschalon Book II Beta Testers
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Basilisk Games is asking for beta testers for its upcoming RPG, Eschalon: Book II. Although testing of the Mac version will not begin immediately, interested Mac users are asked to sign up now. The second in the old school RPG series will include improvements like re-rendered tiles, new weather effects, new skills, new monsters, and a larger world to explore.

Before continuing to the application, you need to consider a few important factors:

- Beta testing is not fun. It is work. You will be playing a buggy, incomplete game and you may be asked to start over several times. Basilisk Games expects you to check in every few days and let us know how testing is going. You will grow to hate us and the game itself. Is this really what you want?

- If you are anticipating the game so much that you want to beta test it just to play it sooner than anyone else, you should just wait. In just a few more weeks you can enjoy the full, bug-free game like it was meant to be played.

- Do you still want to help us test Eschalon: Book II? Good! By becoming a beta tester you will be helping make a bug-free game for others to enjoy. Remember, many people will be counting on you to do your job and play-test the game as much as possible. Submit an application only if you have a lot of free time to give us. You will need a minimum of 20-40 hours of free time over a 3-4 week period to properly test Book II. If you don't have this much time to give us, then please don't submit an application.

- Just because you apply doesn't mean you will be chosen to help us. We are expecting a lot of applications and only 10-12 people will be approved. To improve your chances of being accepted, fill out the application completely. Use proper grammar and punctuation. Don't tell us what you think we want to hear, just answer the questions honestly.

- We're looking for Windows, Macintosh and Linux testers, but we will start with the Windows people. If you want to test the Macintosh or Linux version please submit an application now but remember it will be a couple extra weeks before we start with the other versions.

- What do you get for beta testing? Well, if you can complete the minimal requirements of beta testing, you will get your name listed in the game and a registration code that can be used on all future versions of the game.

- We will take applications for one full week before selecting anyone, so everyone has an equal chance of getting a beta-test spot.
