Iron Tower have launched the closed beta test for the long-awaited Colony Ship combat demo. A select group of testers are already playing and over the next few weeks additional players will be joining up. If everything goes as planned, the demo will have a public release next month. The announcement update is short on text but it does come with ten new screenshots showcasing the latest iteration of the game's user interface, which looks better than ever.
Believe it or not, we finally hit this very important milestone. After 3 years of work I can hardly believe it myself (it's a very surreal feeling). Anyway, the first group of colonists is already playing the demo, so far no crashes or other unpleasantries. If everything goes well, we'll add 10-15 people this weekend and keep adding more each week until we have all the missing pieces, then release it to generic public.
What's left to do: replacing some old animations that Ivan never had a chance to finish, female animations and models, coats (the models are nearly done, need to be textured), all customization options including hair and beards, some GUI tweaks here and there, and extra sounds.
Hopefully it won't take long for somebody to upload some footage to YouTube so we can finally see this thing in action.
