When the small indie studio MobileBits did not have the money for a long internal private beta test, they decided to try something else: why not release the game very early and continue development together with the players?
Almost a year and over 2 million beta testers later the free2play Action RPG SoulCraft is finally out of beta and available for free on all major platforms (iOS, Android, Windows 8, WP8 and Kindle).
A lot of things have changed since the initial release of the game: the UI has been completely redesigned several times, controls of the hero have changed and even the locations and level have changed several times considering the feedback of the players and the data we gathered during the public beta. Since the last update SoulCraft has an average rating of over 4.5 on Google Play and therefore we are happy to bring the game “out of beta”. “Currently over 20,000 new players are signing up for SoulCraft every day”, says Karsten Wysk, CEO of MobileBits. “We are especially happy with that since we did not spent a single dollar for marketing yet”.
One of the main feedbacks we got from the players was the wish to be able to continue playing across all platforms – meaning you can start at home on your Windows 8 PC, continue playing on your phone while going to school/work and then finishing on your tablet in the evening. SoulCraft fully supports this.
SoulCraft will continue to be developed on all platforms with major new improvements coming in the next few weeks and months. Players are still invited to take part in this process to continuously tweak and improve the game by using our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SoulCraftGame
