The Tomorrow Children closed alpha test has begun. There’s an official message to everyone from director Dylan Cuthbert. There will be updates as needed throughout the alpha, so be sure to check!
*Sign-ups for the alpha have already closed.
Greetings fellow comrades!
Welcome to the Tomorrow Children Closed Alpha Test! I’m super excited to finally be opening up the world for you all to explore and I’d like to thank you for being part of the whole process of making The Tomorrow Children. This closed alpha is just a small part of what we have in store for the final release but for now, I welcome you all to venture into the Void and help save humanity!
The Tomorrow Children is about working toward a shared goal while retaining the freedom to act on your own, exploring a strange and unique world that can change at a moment’s notice, and unraveling the mystery behind what can happen when the limits of science are pushed too far. All of this is wrapped around a twisted version of Marxism with the idea that we can explore what it means to work together – or apart! – in a virtual community sandbox.
During the test these forums will be our main means of communicating with the testers. We’ll be holding activities, posting information about the alpha, and of course listening to your feedback about The Tomorrow Children. Please don’t be afraid to let us know about your experience! You notice that The Tomorrow Children devs will have the prefix “TTC” for the forums ideas. If you have a question, please reach out to us!
Dylan Cuthbert, Director of the Tomorrow Children.
