All the new, larger techniques that we have been saving for the Beta will likely be added to this pre-alpha launch. So in abstract, as a substitute of a restricted “social” demo, we will likely be bringing a a lot better participant expertise within the pre-alpha model. Whereas this launch will come at an elongated timeline, we’re excited to share the brand new options in updates and dev logs
To begin with we wish to want all of you a really completely happy new yr. As we left 2021 behind we wish to thank each certainly one of you for being a part of our journey.
Beginning the brand new yr, we wish to make just a few updates on what is occurring with the event course of. As everyone knows, Mist has began as an Motion RPG with a prime down digital camera. The type many people cherished a lot, together with myself. Nevertheless, our staff finally made the choice to do a whole makeover of our sport. This wasn’t solely a stylistic determination.
This was a choice to make Mist MUCH larger. We’ve got already addressed these particulars in our earlier medium articles.
Starting 2022 right here we have been, with an even bigger gameplan, with extra work to do and extra importantly having an even bigger affect on the blockchain gaming business sooner or later. With out additional ado let’s speak concerning the updates on our closed demo.
Preliminary Closed Demo Launch Plans
Initially we have been going to launch a restricted, social hub sort of closed demo with very minimal performance.
