Alpha Testing has begun on Pantheon, Rise of the Fallen

I am excited to be testing the alpha release of Pantheon.  I have spent about two hours so far exploring the world with just some minor graphics issues like tree branches in homes, running down hill and the grass is above me and one spot where I was on grass and next under water.  Overall the game is smooth, and graphics are good.

Because of th NDA I can’t get more detailed.  Looking forward to this games release.

Alpha Launch – Finally

Great News!  I received my email last night inviting me to the Alpha Testing program for Pantheon, Rise of the Fallen.  It had been many years since I had pledged on the production of this game.  At times we all thought it was never going to happen, but at least there is testing going on.

Do to the Cone of Silence, I will not be publishing a lot about how it is going, but I will keep you all updated on what I can talk about.
