Darkfall is one of those titles that has been in development long enough that some people are starting to cry Vaporware. However the dev's at Aventurine can actually confirm with hard proof that the game is coming out. What is that hard proof you ask?
Beta tester responses.
The Darkfall devs have posted selections of anonymous tester feedback on their forums, both to vet their existence and to give prospective players a feel for the game from a player's point of view.
Before the next wave of testers we thought it would be a good idea to post a representative sample of quotes from the current testers taken from an unsolicited first impressions thread in the beta forums. In doing so we cooperated with the testers in order to get a good balance of the good and the bad. I posted this update in the beta forums last night, and asked for help in order to make it a fair assessment of the experience so far. Everyone had the opportunity to pitch in and they seem to agree that the resulting preview accurately represents the sentiment of the testers.
Having said that, I have to mention that our tester sample so far is diverse. The testers range from our biggest fans to our biggest critics, and from near ÂcarebearsÂ to the most hardcore players out there.
