'Arcane Arena' Seeks Beta Testers
3:09 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

We have received the excellent news that Mac publisher Freeverse is looking for several experienced beta testers to jump into the Arcane Arena and begin troubleshooting this combat-oriented MMORPG. This game has gone Beta right on target, and will hopefully be ready for release at the end of the summer. Here is Freeverse's request:

Freeverse is looking for a small number of experienced testers to be the
first to try our new online tactical combat game, Arcane Arena.

Using a client/server model, Arcane Arena is a persistent world, massively
multiplayer RPG style game. By utilizing a unique battle system in which
individual speed characteristics effect the real-world rate at which they
receive turns, battles capture both the adrenaline rush of real time games
and the complex, tactical satisfaction of turn based play.

You will not find an online experience quite like this in any other game.

To qualify for this round of testing, you should:

- Have a modern Mac running OS 9.1.

- Have a broadband internet connection.

- Have at least heard of, and not be afraid of MacsBug.

- Be mostly available Sunday and Weds evenings (10pm e.s.t.), for team

All who are interested should mail their qualifications and hardware profile to Colin Lynch Smith at -- please, serious applications only. For more information on Arcane Arena, jump to our previous article.
