Just a quick update: beta testing is still going great! We are giving our testers a Release Candidate later this week to check out. If all goes well, we should be able to announce a release date very, very soon. Keep checking in!
This is a good time to remind everyone of our Twitter, Facebook and Buzz accounts. Often “minor updates” will end up there if they aren’t important enough for our main website. It’s just another way to stay in the know!
[EDIT] This was just posted in the community forums. It’s far more entertaining than our boring update: Link
We are no longer accepting Beta Tester applications. Thanks to everyone who has submitted an app- the response has been great! We will begin contacting the lucky applicants in the next 48 hours.
Below is the link to the beta tester application. The application will be online for about a week, after which we will start contacting those of you who are chosen.

To all of you who are patiently waiting, we’ll be putting the Book II beta tester application online this weekend. Full details on the beta testing process will be posted then.
We’ll be releasing the video trailer for Book II sometime next week. Ready to see Book II in action for the first time? Don’t forget to check back next week!

Development continues forward at a dizzying pace! More info soon.
We are now testing with our “internal beta testing crew”. Their focus is game balance and checking on the main quest; meanwhile side-quests and secondary map map details are getting filled in. It is our greatest hope that this will lead into a semi-public beta test in February. Stay tuned!
