Posted in In Development by Squirminator2k at 21/01/10 5:59pm CET

Team17 are looking for people to beta-test the Windows version of Alien Breed: Evolution. From the forum:

Team17 are pleased to announce that we will be conducting a limited closed beta programme for the PC version of Alien Breed Evolution, to commence within the next two weeks. Specifically, the beta will be focusing upon hardware compatibility and network performance.

The beta version of the game will consist of the single player trial level and the first co-op multiplayer level which can be played online with a friend. If you’d like to have a chance to play the game early and help us shape the Alien Breed experience for the PC then follow the application instructions posted below. We’re looking to get the game tested on as many different hardware configurations as possible, so please do get in touch!

Application Process

If you would like to take part, you will need to use the application form which can be found at: http://www.alienbreedevolution.com/closedbeta/files/Alien_Breed_Beta_App.doc

Please download it, fill it out electronically and send in an email to alienbreedbetaapplication[at]team17.com.

You will need to attach a DirectX diagnostic report to this email for your application to be considered. More information about this can be found below.

DirectX Diagnostic Report

When applying, please attach a DirectX diagnostic report to the application. Applications that do not have a DxDiag report attached will not be considered for the beta programme.

To obtain a DxDiag report, click Start, and select the menu item Run. Type DxDiag.exe and click Ok when the window appears. The report can then be obtained by selecting Save All Information, and can be attached to the email as a text file.

Team17 Forum Account

To participate in the beta programme you will also be required to have a Team17 forum account to allow you to gain access to the beta forum. You can sign up for a forum account at http://forum.team17.com/register.php. Applications that do not provide a Team17 forum username will not be considered for the beta programme.

Steam

You will need to have a Steam account and the Steam client installed to participate in the Alien Breed beta programme. We’ll be using Steam to provide the beta build to you, with the client allowing us to provide updates to the game on the fly, effectively streamlining the beta process for all involved.
For more information please visit http://www.steampowered.com.

Caveat

Please remember that the game is in a pre-release state which has not been optimised for all systems, and will in no way reflect the quality of the final released product. Participants will be required to agree to an NDA preventing the discussion of the game until after the beta programme has ended. The beta programme will be active for a limited period only and Team17 has the right to withdraw the beta programme at any time without explanation.
All personal information collected by Team17 during the beta programme will be stored locally, used only for the purposes of conducting the beta programme and will not be disclosed to any third parties.
