Back to the Desert

Another beta, for those of you who missed it last weekend

Those of you who read our Tale In The Desert interview last week but couldn't make it into the associated beta session can rest easy, as eGenesis will be firing up their kilns again for a few hours from 5pm GMT tomorrow evening (Friday 5th April). If you haven't already downloaded the beta client you can grab it here, and then sign up for the beta to be kept informed of future play sessions. Apparently last week's test went well, with the introduction of some new skills, the construction of Egypt's first courthouse, and the discovery of the printing press. Next thing you know we'll all be chatting on mobile phones and taking trips down the Nile in speedboats... Related Feature - Desert Tale interview
