New PotBS Dev Log & Screens

Posted Thu, Sep 08, 2005 by Ethec

Will HoratioHornblower be the new "Leggollaaaas"?

Flying Lab put on a show for folks at PAX, and judging from the number of favorable "first impressions" articles that editors have been hungrily posting, it looks like the preview was a hit. The devs are now back in their cubicles, readying PotBS for alpha testing.

I also mentioned in my last dev log that we’re going to start the alpha test program during this milestone. Alpha testing will initially start with a focus on combat scenario testing. Ships of different types, with different packages, captained by players of different skills, as well as different groupings (small scout ships with larger capital ships, a mix of frigates and merchantmen, etc.) all have to be balanced against one another. For that we need frequent combats with good analysis, so we’re going to be carefully evaluating the first testers who get into the game.

Take a look at the Pirates of the Burning Sea Dev Log here.
Flying lab has also posted 3 new PotBS screenshots.
