Public Alpha Goes Live

Today, Pathologic 2 Public Alpha goes live. It means that the Alpha Build is now available to everyone.

If you’ve signed up for the Alpha already, the link has been sent to you. If you haven’t, just go ahead and do it here. The e-mail will be sent to you immediately. (Note that if you’re not an alpha or beta backer, you weren’t signed up automatically; please follow the link and do it manually!)

Just to reiterate, everyone can play the Pathologic 2 Alpha now. Prepare to suffer bugs and glitches, as befits an alpha, and then suffer without them, since such is the world of Pathologic.

Feedback

Your feedback is invaluable for the quality of the final game. If you encounter a bug, glitch, something unclear, or just generally want to let us know that you completely disagree with our decisions, please remember that:

  1. We’ve made this survey for you to take part in. Please don’t peek before you try the alpha! It has spoilers. It’s mostly in quiz form and will probably take you 5-10 minutes to fill.
  1. You can provide full-fledged bug reports via this page. Shower us with silly screenshots! Describe ridiculous situations in full detail! The more precise you are, the easier we can fix the issue.
  1. We’re now launching Backer Steam Forums and a Discord server if you’d rather provide general feedback.
  1. And, as always, we’re carefully reading every e-mail you send to support@ice-pick.com.

The alpha features Days 1-3 of the Haruspex’s story, in case you’re worried about spoilers

    Будет возможность альфу скачать через стим? или только по ссылке в письме?

  • Мих Стаканъ

    Добрый вечер. Ссылка пришла, все хоршо, но одна проблема – альфа на английском. От русскоговорящих девелоперов нужно бы и на русском проходить, ибо страх не уловить тонкости.
    Так надо или я что-то пропустил?

  • Paolo Cadlum

    Any chance there will be a Torrent version?

  • Evgeny Ipatov

    Когда можно будет оставить предзаказ в стиме?

  • flashmozzg

    Спрашивал на кикстартере, спрошу и здесь: сколько ещё стадий тестирования примерно планируется? Сколкьо примерно текущая стадия продлится? Почему тестирование происходит не в рамках стима (казалось бы,обеспечить распространение и обновление билда проще там)? Что-то не вдохновляет перспектива качать 10+ ГБ каждые пару недель (притом даже не торрентом), и это ещё при хорошом интернете. Спасибо.

    Какие системные требования, на данный момент, какие будут в момент релиза? Спасибо.
