Personalized Special Beta Experience

It’s been a bit more than a month, since I launched the first beta of The Architect.
As you may know, I had the closed beta open for about 48 hours: I sent a personalized demo everybody who filed a request on the website. The customization took 30-50 minutes for a single demo, depending on my experience creating and testing it.
It was a short experiment mainly, because more demo requests would overload me – taking in count, that I did in my spare time.

Some stats:

  • advertised on 4 places: Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Reddit; only once on each
  • 19 demos sent out
  • most people came from Reddit
  • 4 responses with useful feedback received

The result: 31 issues and a few bugs reported (most of them are fixed by now). Also, posted a FeedbackFriday post to Reddit – two very useful feedbacks came in.

Let’s see some screenshots!

I’ll leave to you to discover what’s new and what’s changed in the game. How does it look now?

PS: Next Beta coming soon!
