A pre-alpha test version of Concealed Intent can be downloaded from dropbox here. PC and Mac versions work on my machine. The linux version is untested – beware (but thanks if you try it!).

If you want to see what the game looks like just download the version appropriate for your computer, unzip and run the app. All feedback is welcome – especially if you find a bug! If you use the inbuilt feedback system (click ‘J’ while in-game) then I’ll get sent some debugging info along with your feedback.

There is still a long way to go and lots of further work to do (better campaign, AI and online play being the larger tasks). But this version should give a good taste of what is to come! Fingers crossed there are no major bugs! I’ll keep the link updated with the latest version while there are still alpha releases.

The main reason I’m putting out these early versions is for the feedback. Comments from testers definitely make a difference when developing a game. One of the reasonably large changes to Concealed Intent from playtesters is the removal of the “map mode”. Players never seemed to use it. So now it is gone, with the “here is everything” functionality replaced with arrows on the edge of screen pointing to entities offscreen. Hovering over the arrow shows the current display name of that entity and clicking on it centres the screen on that entity. What else do you think should change?
