How is the testing going?
Testing is held in several stages.
First stage — closed alpha tests, which were held in February 2019 and May 2019.
During the selection process of participants we considered all the applications that we received via official site https://skylore.com. Alpha tests had individual schedule according to the goals and tasks.
Tests were called closed due to the fact that we could invite limited amount of players and each of them had to sign the NDA. This agreement is still acting for the information that players received during closed tests and we’re asking participants to follow the agreement.
The next testing stage is an open test, which will be held from 7th till 22nd of August 2019, and we’re inviting everyone who would like to participate.
Information about the nearest testing stages will be piblished in September 2019 on this page as well as in our Facebook group, forum and Discord server.
What are the goals of testing?
During all stages we will gather reviews from players and analyze the data. It will help us optimize the game and remove any detected bugs.
Who can participate in testing?
During the open test the game will be available in Russian and English. Any limitations related to the countries where the test is available will be appeared later.
On the first few stages of closed testing the game was available only in Russian language. So russian-speaking users, who live in Russia and CIS countries, were able to participate in the testing.
In the future we’re planning to translate the game in other languages. Details will be available closer to the official launch.
Are there any age restrictions?
Every stage of testing has its own conditions and limitations.
To participate in the open test, there are no age limits. However, there is an expected age rating of the game of 12+ that might change in the future.
To participate in the closed alpha tests, you should be 18 years of age or older in order to sign the NDA.
What is NDA?
It is Agreement between you and AIGRIND LLC about your participation in the first few stages of closed testing. NDA prohibits sharing, publishing, disclosing, distributing, transmitting, posting or providing in-game information directly or indirectly in any form to any kind of resource. In case of a breach of this Agreement AIGRIND LLC has right for court proceeding and bringing offenders to liability in accordance with the legislation.

What are the minimum system requirements?
Now we are testing the game with the next requirements:

How many participants will join testing?
Every stage of the testing has its own goals, tasks and conditions as well as limits related to amount of participants.
The first few testings will be closed: it means that the amount of participants will be limited. For every stage of closed testing we will select participants among everyone who left the applications through the site https://skylore.com.
Open tests have no limits for amount of participants. However there is a limit stated by TestFlight for iOS participants: 10,000 of players.
