That's right. I've sent the first beta of Absence out to my beta testers today.
I've spent the last two months to get this beta done. Thus creating / tweaking maps, adding new objects / enemies and tweaking / bug-fixing the code. I actually planned to get this beta out much earlier, but as always, life intervened.
Last but not least, I've taken a new random screenshot for you. Oh, by the way, I'm probably won't take screenshots anymore which show too much new stuff. That's because I want to prevent that you've seen too much of the game even before it's released ;-) I probably going to create a teaser or trailer some time, but I'm not sure yet.
