before it, SpyParty
is being made by just one man, and it will cost a nominal amount to access the game's public beta. Creator Chris Hecker announced as much on the SpyParty blog
today, detailing the game's $15 beta access -- which will eventually roll over into a full game license when SpyParty
officially launches -- and also noting that it will be rolled out in batches "over the next few months" as he expands server capacity.
While signing up
to be part of the "Early-Access Beta" program doesn't cost anything, Hecker encourages only serious inquiries to add their email. OS X users should also hold off for the time being, as the beta will be PC-only initially, though Hecker adds "but not forever" in the same breath. Finally, though no specific parameters are given, he says "any 3D graphics card from the past few years" should be sufficient enough to handle the game's visuals.
