Testing, Testing, 1,2,3...

Hello everyone, it has been a while since I have written here. The Rubber Duck Software team have been busy developing and doing a lot of behind the scenes work, which is why it has been so quiet. We are in-house testing at the moment and hope to have a 'closed beta' version available in the next few weeks or so.

The Closed Beta will be tested by some selected Hooves players (as well as our in-house testers). We are looking forward to the opportunity to show you what we have been working on (including some great artwork from the talented Erin Hunting) and get some feedback from some experienced Hooves Players. 

There has been quite a bit of interest from players in becoming beta testers and without giving too much away, there are specific requirements we are looking for from our testers, at least initially. As the beta progresses, we aim to roll out to more testers.

We hope that our beta testers will bear in mind that what they will be testing is essentially unfinished. There is still much polishing and refinement to do. Closed Beta Testers will also need to agree to strict confidentiality terms while the Closed Beta is in progress. Although that means no discussing the testing with other people or players, a special area on the forum will be set up so that the testers can give feedback and discuss the game.

For those of you that are interested in becoming a Closed Beta tester and have not already applied, please send an email to requesting more information about the Closed Beta.
