Don't test too much. While you're free to explore the whole game, please focus on the objective. Once you hit the objective or a major bug, report your feedback and stop playing the beta for now. We'll be back with more test objectives that we hope you'll take on in the future
Once we have confirmation from enough players—and can confirm there are no blocking issues— we'll move onto the next test objectives!
We've opened up beta testing to the Steam Forums, but we still need more macOS testers! Tell your friends!
From our Steam event & external testing we've added 49 Windows, 4 macOS & 10 Linux players to the count!
