Report article RSS Feed Pirate Hell reaches beta state

There's always a moment in the development process where the motivation level is trying to reach lower levels then zero and the bunch of work left to do seems to be incredible large. But then, somehow, you recognize that your game has got everything you wanted. So there's nothing left to say then: Welcome to the beta-state.

When I started at Pirate Hell it was snowing outside. Currently it's snowing again. So the only change I can recognize is: The last number of the year has incremented and, somehow, I got something what I would call a game.

And that means we are in the beta-phase (horray!).

I have a bunch of guys who are helping me testing the game. So as we're playing like the devils to make the game the best we can do enjoy the media stuff I've uploaded so far.

I can't tell how happy I am about that.

But as always: this wouldn't be possible without a bunch of monkeys developing a great engine.^^
