Alpha testing is a common part of software development. But generally, it is not something that is exposed to the general public. But the close-knit communities of web3 and blockchain gaming have brought developers and game players together in ways that are rarely seen in the world of standard game development.
Crowdfunding, community involvement, and accessible alpha playtests seem to be the norm in web3 development. And not only are developers interested in getting feedback about the game, but they want they also want to give their players a chance to experience the worlds and experiences as they are being built.
Sometimes alphas are gated behind owning certain Founder or Genesis NFTs. Others might require a referral code from a friend or grant access based on community involvement. Some, on the other hand, are completely free and open to the public!
And on top of early access, and potentially having your feedback shape the game development, many alphas offer rewards in the form of game tokens and NFTs to participants!
So follow us here at Play to Earn Online and we’ll help keep you up to date with the latest alpha releases and any requirements they might have!
