November 25, 2005: Open Alpha BeginsOur first open alpha-test session, Hotel, begins at midnight tonight . . . that is, in the tick between Friday the 25th and Saturday the 26th. Hotel will be solo play only . . . you'll conquer a small cluster of worlds, moving at your own speed and ticking when you're ready. In particular, be sure to check out the new and improved autofleet system!
You'll also be able to see the new blue "skin" on lobby and help pages, though not (yet) on the actual game pages.
Log in to www.ultracorps.com any time between midnight tonight and 11:59:59 pm Sunday, give it a try, and post your comments on the forums! Monday we'll mail out a link to a short questionnaire. Please, please respond, and help us improve the game!
