At this point, I'm requesting for people to beta test this game. Some of the people in the Caster beta group will be asked if they're interested, but I want to open it up to other people as well to give other people shots at trying out stuff.

For those interested, please send me an email at beta_request@earlconsult.com with your systems' information, such as CPU, memory, sound chipset (if you know it), and distribution you're using. I'll select from a range of people's configurations so I can ensure a better range of testing.

I'm not expecting too much of a test with this first cut (But it needs to be HAMMERED on- and for good cause... ), so I'm going to largely only pull from the next week, week and a half's worth of requests to the email address given.
