Onyx Testers Needed

June 13th, 2006 by Crusader

The author of Onyx sent in word that he’s looking for beta-testers for his project:

The countdown is on. In the next 7 to 10 days a limited Onyx beta is going out the door.

Onyx is a X-Wing/ Tie Fighter/ Wing Commander-ish single player space combat drama which has been in development for 3 years almost to the day.

There are things that will not work and only some skirmishes, races, obstacle courses and a bit of the first chapter will be included. Many features are not going to be complete and the balancing is going to be terrible. But it’ll be playable.

Windows and Linux beta testers needed. Ideally 15 to 30 of each with some overlap.

If you’re interested you can email me. Including your basic system specifications would be helpful.

It’s been years and we’re getting close. I hope to hear from lots of people.
