Check out a full playthrough of the Galactic Civilizations III alpha, edited down to a two-minute narrated video:

Questions? Ask ‘em here. I’d give you the save file for turn one to see if you could beat my time to victory, but a) I’m 100% certain someone could and it’s from an older build and won’t load in the build Elite Founders are getting access to on Thursday.

Thursday is GC3 alpha day, everybody! Are you stoked? Because I am stoked.

Also, writing, recording, editing, and cutting your own voiceover is an interesting process. Just sayin’.

Quoting ParagonRenegade,

"Moar"?? It is obvious you don't mean "more", so what do you mean? Is this an acronym of some sort?

I snagged a screenshot of the planet screen.

I like that we are able to play even after we achieve a victory condition.

Old timers these days!  

 

"Moar" is just an asshole way of saying 'more'. It also just... feels right.

Haha, I literally just came here to say "don't put too much stock in the planet screen, we're tearing it apart and reworking it pretty much as we speak."

But yeah, don't put too much thought into the planet screen. That one is super bonus awesome for missing the texture that should live behind the hex grid, but otherwise it's pretty much what you'll see on Thursday.

The final planet screen, however, will be much different and better organized in terms of how it presents information to you and lets you interact with it.

Such is the alpha lifestyle.

Thursday, unless something blows up in testing. They won't be implemented in game for a while yet though.

On a similar subject. I found out we get a special thanks in the credits, will that be our real names or screen names? I hope it's our screen names.

Cool I got a question if you don't mind.. Do borders work the same way as in GalCIv2? Other factions can colonize the colonized planets inside your border or no?

I'll only say that if my weakling of a videocard cannot handle the game at lowest settings ever, I'm going to cry. Blood.

On a side note, visually it looks really good for a pre-alpha. For a moment, one could forget that it's a work in progress.

Well, it looks nice. The enthusiasm from the person in the video is obvious. Movement looks good.

The video doesn't really show much "gameplay" though. It's to be expected from a pre-alpha product, but I'm not feeling the same level of excitement out of it that others are.

Guess I misunderstood what he meant in this thread: http://forums.galciv3.com/452505/page/1/#3450292 I thought he was saying we wouldn't submit them until the summer.

I was planning to hold off on DLing this for a while, but AOW3 is a week away.

 

How big is the Alpha DL going to be?
