Today is a great day for jemchicomac and everybody involved in the project.
We’ve entered in Alpha stage in Google Play.
We have choosen to distribute the app to a limited list of people that has showed interest in the project in the past. We are using the Alpha testing feature from the new Google Play Developer Console. With this feature, a group of users, defined by a Google+ community or a group in Google Groups can get an early access to apps.
For these users, the app is available in Google Play as any other regular app:
Automatic updates also works, simplifiying the way we distribute the app to the testers. Google+ community will be used also to host feedback and any other activity of this nascent community.
Still, there is a lot of things to do prior to the commercial launch in November:
- No music and special Sound Effects
- Play only 25 levels instead the +50 of the final version
- Level of difficulty has not been fully adjusted
BUT you are going to be able to try the gameplay and enjoy with the dazzling puzzles and the action in the cargo facilities where every second counts and there is no room for the human error.
Every week we will release new versions including all the remaining features and your suggestions. Then, when the launch time arrives, you will have a complete version of the game with access to all the levels and extras for free!!!
What do I need to do to join the Crazy Belts alpha testing program?
You need to own an Android device with a Google Play account properly configured. If you have a non-Apple device and has downloaded apps you are ok.
During the next week we are going to accept new people joining to the program, please send an email to email@example.com. You will receive an email back with all the instructions to participate.
What do I commit to becoming a tester?
We just need your help improving the game. If you find any problem, bug or suggestion please let us know in the Google+ community or sending back an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will relase at least a new version of the game every week up to the commercial launch in November. Please check if your comments or suggestions are taken into account. We will try to solve any bug in the next available release.
I do not have an Android device but I also want to join the program. What should I do?
No worries, send us an email back to hello@jemchicomac and we will send you the desktop version of the game. Weekly updates will be manually done by your side but we will be in charge of sending you the new version every week.
