Your games will be first on the platform as people join Open Alpha, so make a good impression. Implement UI, take well-lit screenshots, and make custom logos for your game!
Why Open Alpha?
Open Alpha is for creators. Core is still very early software, and there's lots of features we look forward to implementing. For this next stage, we're inviting more creators to get wider feedback and new outlooks, pushing the boundaries of the platform as people create new types of games and genres on Core. Thank you for being one of the very first Core creators who got it ready for this point, from all the community playtests to the bug reports to the silly Discord banter. On March 16, let's welcome the new wave and help them create that game they've always wanted to play.
