Tom Francis, creator of Gunpoint (our Verdict) has been working on Heat Signature (official site) for a while, has released a sneaky two week alpha for his game of sneaking around spaceships. Here are the details.
If you own the Exclusive Edition (or the Extras Packs) for Gunpoint on Steam, you can choose check out a two week alpha for Heat Signature. As Tom details on his blog, this is a very early build alpha which he is using purely to gather people’s thoughts and identify bugs.
It is worth keeping in mind that this isn’t an Early Access deal, more a thank you to those who bought Gunpoint and were generous enough to pick up the Exclusive Edition. If you get involved in this alpha test, Tom would appreciate any feedback that can be recorded via a link found in-game. You never know, you might be invited to future tests if you send in feedback.
What am I going to do as soon as I’ve finished writing this post? I’ll be checking this out of course. I managed to have the briefest of flings with Heat Signature at EGX last year, and I’ve been keenly waiting for a chance to get some more hands on time with it. Tom’s been creating a great series of developer diaries about the game, check out the latest below.
