The closed beta will start at Cyber Monday, on 27th of November 2017 and will run during the complete cyber week!

  • Revamp of item concept done, items for beta defined and drops beautified
  • Translation for all texts checked and new texts implemented.

List of testers for closed beta

I will simply list all the testers that are going to take part up to now, in alpabetical order:

@aaronmcheong @ahorn @akashas @alanman @alcy @asimshahzad @ats-david @chuazm @cmduncan94 @cobalus @creativetruth @danile666 @danno528 @dksart @dragoonkite @eirik @felixxx @flamo @flurgx @free999enigma @havok777 @juicy-shark @kabeem @kekssideoflife @kodieamos @kranoras @lanmower @lennstar @maple-thunder @mys @paolobeneforti @plushzilla @quocvietle @rahvin84 @reggaemuffin @relationtrip @schlees @shaka @sighmanjestah @simonjay @stayoutoftherz @steesam @virusa @vladimir-simovic @zombebyte @gregory.latinier

Needless to say that @dehenne, @asperger-kids, @bronkong, myself and most of the developers will also be taking part!

I put this list together taking comments and direct messages to me or to @dehenne. Please do not take it personal if i have forgotten you or made a mistake, just message me and it will be fixed!
We decided to have no more than 50 testers in closed beta, since there are already 45 on the list, the counter for available places shows 5.

Cool cyber monday sounds good I will probably be busy around that time due to work but looking forward to testing this out @jedigeiss


Nice post! What will happening, if someone resteem your post?

Wir sind extrem gespannt mit euch in die Beta zu starten!

Das bin ich auch. Ich freue mich auf den 27. November. :-)

Ich bin schon so gespannt :D

Jaja, du cheatest doch, immer am Gewinnen hier -.- aber warts nur ab, ich zieh mir die geilen Waffen und dann MUAHAHAHAHAHA

Wird diese Kiste über dem Post permanent angezeigt, oder nur kurz eingeblendet. Mich würde es stören, wenn die Bilder dadurch permanent überdeckt sind. Vielleicht könnte man die Kiste auch wo anders platzieren. Nur so als kleine Anregung.


Klick drauf, dann sammelst du das Item und sie ist weg ^^
Aber solche Anmerkungen sind super. Wir können hier gerne auch eine Einstellung mit reinbringen (Keine Items droppen)

May i help test,(I want in)


hi and good morning, sure this makes 4 places left ;)

Extremely interesting, do you think this could conflicts with another steemit plugin? does this plugin change something in steemit website code? works with busy, etc?


Good question. the plugin integrates a kind of frame into the page and communicates with the current page. so there should be no conflict. we have set up the whole thing, that we can unlock further pages :-)

in the future we will be adding more pages, (eq:
if you want to know more or know more details, we look forward to meeting you in the chat room ;-)

I am excited!!!


oh believe me we are at least as excited as you are :)

Whoohoo! This month is getting exciting.


The year was exciting ... and the next year is gettin exciting :D a lot of new projects are starting now on steemit. that's so awesome.


yep it will be great, very much looking forward to it


Yup, very Well said!!!

Looking good :)


Thank you :-)

So is this a game you play alongside browsing steemit then?


yes. for the first time it was meant to be like this
in the coming versions we would like to make real quests, too


Nice! I'll give it a try when you guys release it for sure :-)

COOLES PROJEKT!! 100% upvote


vielen dank !

Saubere Sache, freue mich auf die Beta!


wir uns auch !

Looking forward to this ;-)


me as well ! be sure about that :D

I'm very excited about what it is you are developing and wanted so badly to put my name in as a tester. I figured you would have a big line-up so didn't bother because I know I don't have a lot of free time to put into being what I think is a GOOD tester. However, if you still have room and want someone who will only work part time at testing, I would be willing to give it a try. If you have others who are willing and able to put in more hours, then by all means give the spot to them and I will look forward to joining when the closed testing is done and it is time for open testing.


can take you in was well, i think you are number 50 :)


Sweet! Thank-you!
I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with and hope I can contribute something worthwhile.

I am so stoked!!!!! Looking forward to the beta! :D


beta beta beta :D we are super excited !

This sounds extremely interesting. Would you guys might think about adding visuals to the game? For example maybe 16 bit avatars or customizable ones that can be represented on a game board like map to represent the stats and the milestone made with progress of the steemit game? This was just a random thought. I know this is development, just instantly started visualizing it's potential. Dare I say even interested in being a tester? Definitely will be on the look out @jedigeiss .



can take you in if you want to! i think that we are almost full now :)


Well if you happen to have any more space, I'm interested. Please let me know.

I love this Steem Steam MMO idea :)

Is there a place to subscribe email-wise for the open-beta ? (or any free spaces for the closed-one left ;) )


i think we got 3 places left, iam going to add you then its 2 left :D


Just read all the comments, if there's still one of those 4 spaces left, I'd love to help !

I've beta-tested a few small games, and alpha-tested one too, so I'd love to help find bugs, give suggestions on gameplay, etc...


iam setting you on the list, i think 2 or 1 places left :)


Great !

This'll be fun ☺

Nice work :D Denkste an mich? ;)


oha ... ja klar denk ich an dich !

This game looks awesome, it's a very interesting way to use Steemit ! Is there any possibility to join the closed beta ?


yep, we just decided to keep the list open until the next weekly post, so wednesday.
If you want to be in i am going to add you :)


Yeah, I would be very pleased to try it, thanks you :D

Hey guys, I came across your site and I would love to be a part of this in some form or another. I would love to be a beta tester if that is an option, I also do art as a hobby (you can check out my page) and I would love to contribute that way too! Let me know!


hmm honestly our list is full, but having a quick chat with the team we decided to keep the list open until our next weekly post ->Wednesday :)
So you made it and are on the list :)


Steempunk it's really interesting

I wonder if there is any sit left for me.

But the fact that I don't know what to do as beta testers :)

I appreciate everything you and your team are doing for the MMORPG.
I really like to play RPGs.

Haha. Glad to hear that.
But what should I do for the testing ?

Makes me remember an anime called Sword Art Online from this MMORPG. :p
Sorry if I am being childish :)
