You have some very promising ideas here, but asking 25 Bucks min. to join the Alpha testing team at THIS stage of developement is close to robbery...

But I will track at least ;)

Hey, 25 is really much more than just playtesting, but also giving input on the direction of the game... I went into this project with a lot less vision for it than I have now, But I am willing to give over a level of control to those keen on supporting the games development.

I was crunching the numbers, And it comes down to contract work or doing this... And if I am going to put a few more months into this game, it needs to cover my bills or i will be homeless and be worth giving up contract work on some level, so worth atleast a quarter of what I would make in one month doing my regular freelance work, 100 x 25 = 2500 dollars and makes the time organizing the test, the comments, the suggestions, the documentation and bug fixing etc worth while, realistically at that rate I will still need to be working part time, or depending on the response, accept more than 100 input/testers.

I may adjust the numbers to more testers and less of a price point, if this is a sore spot, But I also do not want to give away control to just anybody... 25 dollars seems minimal to have a level of control over something i have poured my heart and soul into. We shall see! I am open to suggestions, please do offer advice on this matter.
