If you want to be a tester, post in this thread. It will be first-come first-serve and I'll close the thread if it gets full. There's no promises! I might want more or less testers, or I might skip right to beta or something. Also, no additional testers are currently being invited, so it's just a waiting list for when I want more. Thanks for offering to help :)
Note: Anyone with "Alpha Tester" by their name is already a tester. There are currently about 10 from before the forum opened.
1st Alpha Tester, right here. :D
I´m ready for Alpha :)
Would love to be an alpha tester. Really excited about this game.
I'm interested in testing! Can't wait to learn more!
I want to be an alpha tester.
Ready and eager to test and find those bugs!
I'd gladly help you hunt down those nasty bugs!
I'm interested in being an alpha tester too.
This game sounds like it is exactly what I enjoy, and I'm totally into the total freedom of play and innovation. I've played and enjoyed UO, ATITD, Minecraft, and such, and I'd be really interested in alpha testing.
I'd be absolutely glad to be an alpha tester! :)
Armed and ready to hunt those nasty bugs. Sign me in!
I'm really interested in helping you guys develop this game it seems exactly what iv been looking for. Sign me up for testing.
Sign me up! Ready to go forth and get in trouble! I have been excited about this game since I first saw it!
I'm indeed interested in testing the game.
I definitely want to try it out.

Depending upon the date of the second alpha test, I may be able to volunteer this time.
Me please (I think you'd said I could be in the first ten) but just double checking :)
You're in already :) Anyone with "Alpha Tester" by their name is already a tester.
I'd love to be a tester, been waiting for this for months!
Ah yes, missed that :)
Being an alpha tester would be awesome. I'd love to help out.
I would love to be an alpha tester this game looks very interesting and wad67/wayde sent me here :D
Hey Atomic, Glad you like the game :D
Really excited about this game, I'd be happy to help test. I have a lot of experience doing QA/UAT in a professional (agile) environment. I have numerous computers to test on with a mixture of dedicated and integrated graphics, and a decent understanding of the unity3d runtime.
Nothing confusing here....
The game server approves of you...in Erlang, when an operation succeeds it returns the following code:
I'd love to Alpha test if you let any more people in :)
Pick me pick me! I love how its based on UO, one of my personal favorites! I'm excited to explore this large world
I'll alpha test if you need any more :) loving the development vids, really psyched for this game :D
Signing in as a tester for FE on linux. :)
Later this week I'll be testing multiplayer with the current testers, then I'll invite more from here. Thanks everyone.
I'm up for alpha testing, though it seems i'd be used later in the game. Good thing i'm subscribed to the newsletter :/
Sign me up! I'm really interested in this whole concept. Pioneering a new world will be exciting! :D
I would love to be an alpha tester, this game looks like so much fun!
I'll run for alpha tester!
I think this game will be really good so I want to help, sign me up :)
I study computer science so I know about coding and I have been beta tester before
I'm game for testing whenever more are needed.
I'd love to alpha test, if possible.
ready to serve your cause. And to mill some wood, catch fish etc. etc.
My body is ready.
Looks super ambitious and I'd love to get in on the ground floor and start exploring and helping the game evolve.
It looks like the game I've always wanted to create, I just never knew it! Very intense. I can't wait to see the finished product! I would also love to see the current development in progress!
[insert endless praise here as a thinly vailed try to get an invite]
I would love to test the alpha. I always liked games about exploring and creating your own world.
I also want to see how the development goes on.
I love playing alpha games and helping them become better it would be great to become one of the alphas for this game if possible
Ditto here on loving to play and test early builds of games. Especially excited about something like this which sounds similar in spirit to Wurm.
I'd love to join alpha test. :-)
Oh man. This is incredibly interesting and I want to be a part of making it a -great- game.
I would like to join as well too please.
I'd like to join the alpha :)
I'd love to join the alpha! Been waiting for a game like this since I stopped playing UO.
I"ll join if there is enough space
I'd be very interested in joining the alpha :)
I´d love to be an alpha tester! This game looks great!
This game is just like Wurm Online. There you can do things exactly like you will be able in this, but there are limits in many things. I would love to see what's up with this bad guy :)
I would also like to participate in alpha tests if there is space for new testers.
Would love to be an alpha tester.
Please stick my name on the list, so far this game sounds just crazy!
[insert generic response asking for acceptance]
I MEAN, please let me join.
I'd like to join to the test.
Im mainly interested in crafting and economical system.
I think it can be a great game one day. :)
Looking like a great game so far guys, I've been looking for something like it for quite some time. Feels like a nice mix of H&H, Wurm, and (You probably don't know this one) Shores of Hazeron.
I'd be very happy to join in on your alpha, if I ever get the chance.
Hope to get into alpha testing!
Looks amazing I'm really looking forward to help with testing, and just exploring this great game.
I would also like to Alpha Test.. started to be interested when I read about similar to UO because it was one of my most favorite games back then :)
This game looks really promising, sign me up!
I want to be alpha tester too! I was alpha tester in Fallen Earth than why not to be in First Earth ^^
i am ready to test
I edited this because FIRST EARTH.
I came here mainly because of @Ozymandias
. He explained little parts of the game to me and it struck me as something new and innovative that I would really like to see. I feel that this game will be big hit and I would like to jump on board as soon as possible to begin enjoying the astounding feat in gaming that will be "First Earth."
Oh mannnnn, I'm so excited for this game, it looks beautiful, and it sounds like the multiplier aspect will be rad! I'm ready to test!
I would like to be a tester too :)
I played Ultima Online lot of time ago and I just quitted Haven and Hearth(great survival-crafting MMO,but devs abandoned it a bit for another similar project).Hope I can join this one soon
I am interested :) Let me know if I can help at all
I would be extremely excited to participate in alpha testing.
Ever since I discovered minecraft I have been looking for a game completely focused around crafting. One where you start of with nothing and have to create tools and build anything you want. So far the closest games that would meet my style have been “stranded” and the iPod app “stranded without a phone”. Both had a great concept but just lacked the number of things that you can craft and use.
“First Earth” looks like it can fill all my needs, and adds many additional amazing features, like technological advancement, especially if you can eventually use electricity and create forms of communication and transport. This is why I would love to be a tester and be one of the first to discover this world and this game evolve to something truly impressive so that it would be known around the world, kind of like minecraft. You guys would be able to show the world that you don’t need to be a huge company with a lot of money to create something truly inspirational.
If you will have room I would love to be tester, but until then or when “First Earth” is released, good luck.
I would much like to help shape this brilliant game concept! I was a huge fan of the Ultima games, and have really been waiting for a game like this to come back onto the MMO scene.
I have previous private beta testing experience for both major (Diablo 3) and minor (The Saga of Ryzom) MMO/RPG games.
I'd love to get into this game!
I would be honored to alpha test this awesome project!
i would love to have a chance to test this game
Definitely interested in this, sign me up.
I would love to be a part of this! Might be a little late in the list but still participating!
After reading what are this game possibilities i would love to be alpha/beta or even theta tester :) Waiting for your respond.
i would love to be in alpha or beta i hope i get into it
I want to join so much!
This sounds awesome! i alway love an altenative world to get lost in.

I would like a shot at alpha/beta testing too. :)
I'd like to test.
I would like to join in the alpha test too. This game looks really interesting.

I'd like to join up, I would love to be able to test these things with others!
I found out about this from Dariush from the bay12 games forum, and I have to say, this look great. Sign me up!
Sign me up, man!
I'd love to be able to join if there's room. I'm sure my computer is more than capable.
Also, I want to be a famous inventor. Wooo.
Pick me. I am the best player. I am better than all the other players. But most importantly, I'm humble.
But seriously I dig these sorts of games. Dariush of Bay12 forums sent me.
I would also like to play please sign me up. Also whatever ^^^^ they said x1 is how much I want to try it.
Sign me up aswell. I must find the magic!
We must find the magic.... together.
Sign me up!
This seems like a great concept for a game; would love to see it in implementation, and maybe even throw some ideas your guys' way. Also, sign me up for alpha, please!
I'd like to join too, and Dariush also referenced me :D
I'm here via Dariush as well, sign me up please, sounds amazing.
I'd like to join the alpha test, the concept of the game looks amazing!
This sounds like a fantastic game! Please add me to the testing list!
Hey congratz on the great concept. I'm reading all about the game in the About and Blog, and same as here in the forum. Im lovin it so long really curious how good it could turn out, and if i can be of any help it whould be my pleasure
I'd love to get in on this. I've always had a strange love for the build/survive genre. I was referenced here by Dariush, along with the others from Bay12.
Referenced from Bay 12, also a long time Wurm player would love to take part
Great to hear about this.
Long term H&H and DF Player - interested in helping Apha Test.
Hope it goes well.
I'm in. I was also sent here by the twelfth bay.
I'll wait patiently!
I'm interested as well. Also from Bay12.
I will wait patiently, this looks great!
Was just wondering around Indiegames until I discovered First Earth. Reminded me of Mortal Online for a bit...but I realized that this is much bigger and interesting than that! A long time UO player (well...I played since the TD. :/ so that doesn't make me an oldie, eh?) I will be excited to adventure this new world and catch those bugs and glitches.
Should be good....Im all in.....
Would love to be in this, looks amazing
I would love to help you guys make this game the best possible! Sign me in please!
I'd be honored if I'd be chosen as a tester for your game! Good PC / connection / lot's of time!
This game looks neat, I'd love to test it.
I've always been interested in open world and open "space" sim games, and this could very well be the king of them all. I'd more than love to give this game a chance and see where it goes and what it gives.
It'd probably be pretty hard to get me to stop testing. :p
i would love to be a tester but looking at the list ahead its looking like it could be a while
I'm already starting to get a few people in from the very start of the thread. But yeah it's getting pretty long here, might have to wait for beta. But we'll see, there's still hope!
I too would love to help test this game :)
ahh crap I just counted and there are 64 more people between me and the last added alpha testers...see you guys in beta lol
Well, if there is place for someone else, count me in :D
When the time comes fro you to have ~150 alpha testers, i'll be there.
I would LOVE to be a tester but if i absoultly have to wait then i will
id love to be a alpha tester
I want to become an alpha tester
i would like to be an alpha tester, the game sounds like a very fun idea
Looking forward to seeing what this game can become. Sign me up :D
I shall apply, Going to test with my friend Driver405 :D
Looks like something me and my gf would love to try out. We enjoy building a community together - whether it's a little farm of just the 2 of us or a thriving society. We've had experience in doing that in some other games, maybe you've heard of Haven & Hearth? Used to play in the older days, before they implemented a new system of character advancement which didn't sit well with us, so we just didn't continue playing once they did a world "wipe".
I'd love to join the alpha test!
I'd love to test, very interested in seeing how development is going so far and what sort of direction it's headed in.
Here is to hoping there would still be room for me!
This sounds like an absolutely intriguing Idea. I'm fond of the exploration/building aspect that was in UO as well as games like Haven and Earth and Wurm. I'd love to jump in and help shape and make this game as amazing as it can possibly be. Either way thank you very much for the consideration.
I'd like to partake in the Alpha Test.
Although it has similar characteristics with Minecraft, I totally like the idea of using actual data on Earth to generate a world. Also, I'd like to know where do you get that data.
I would love to get involved im keen and have a good eye for catching bugs!
long way down the list but I'm game when available. Really would like to explore
I would like to join Alpha Test!!
I'd love to participate. :)
I would love to join the Alpha, I'm real excited, been following this game for a while, I'll make sure to give good insight upon playing!
So you got ultima online as inspiration..
Damm i miss that game. The siege of trinsic. Running around with my provoker having dragon's slay each other.
God i even miss clowtown above minoc.
YESS I want in the alpha
how are you picking alpha testers?
I noticed that some people who signed up and were active here on the forums such as: @Santin @eqfan592 @JackKerras
were passed over and people who only made 1 post(in this thread to be a tester) had been given alpha tester status I only checked people before @waxor
since he only has the 1 post and is in Alpha while the others I mentioned weren't
others who were passed who also made post that may not have been as much of an impact: @christonian @Wasserstern @elci @logos_phobos @nocara
I also noticed some people who have alpha have only recently joined the forum(just this week) so I'm curious
Well I didn't announce it, but those testers are one of either: Close personal friends and family, people I'd invited earlier by personal email who hadn't responded yet, artists who might be interested in working on FE, potential large investors, or reporters doing reviews or interviews.
Many of them don't have time or reason to test all the time. I mentioned before that testing invites are based on load, so those doesn't affect how many others are invited. I do reserve the right to invite anyone for any reason.
Hi, I'd really like to join alpha test to see, how this game is going and to help it improve. I also participated in alpha testing of Mortal Online, which is quite similar, I suppose. But hope FE is going to be much more free :)
would like to be a alpha tester .
in this long long line :p
I'd love to join the alpha testing. Thanks
I would like to join the alpha testers please
Such a long line, I would like to apply for Alpha none the less. Come the time you need hundreds of testers, us late in line guys will always be here ;)
Proper feedback and privacy assured per NDA. I would like alpha access. Looking good.
I'd like to be an Alpha tester. Thanks
I would like to apply for the alpha test as well.
I would love to test First Earth and provide feedback, report bugs if I find any and suggest ways of improvement.
I too would love to participate in alpha testing.
well ive paid some money for beta why not just roll em all into one invited alphas and betas just get something started so we can get to work on the PR side of things
I'd like to help with testing, too! Thanks to Dariush for letting me know about this game.
185th willing alpha tester.
thank you for showing me this, Dariush. (he ought to be rewarded something :P)
After playing wurm online, I decided I wanted a game like this. Hell, I wanted a game like this WELL before I played wurm, I just never had the willingness to search for one.
looking forward to advancing my guy into some sort of evil warlord or something.
Much to my displeasure we can't rape & pillage until a while after the game is released, so I'm going to have to be a entrepreneur selling bulk iron or houses or some such. Oh, and Ollo, it's still going to be a while before you can do more than walk around standard asset Unity terrain and do server load testing for Adam.
I'd love to be part of the testing team for this wonderful game. I'm not sure if it will help my cause at all, but I have quite a bit of alpha and beta testing both online and offline AAA games including the huge Football Manager series, Ultima Online, Secret World, Star Wars TOR to name but a few.
I'm ready and waiting to put my skills to use!
Looking for alpha or beta access. I have alpha tested both Global Agenda and Tribes. I have also beta tested many many other games the list is too long. I am looking for a really nice sandbox game. This looks promising!
I would like to apply as a tester for the game. Dariush from the Bay12 forums introduced me to this game, and his descriptions immediately got me hooked.
I would like to apply as a tester for this game, I have tested several games in various stages and am willing to put the time in to give as much feedback as needed
i would love to be a tester in this game i love testing alpha game s so im ready. soo... please let me alpha test this game.
I would love to be an alpha tester. FE is the game I've been looking for for years.
I would like to begin helping to Alpha Test this product. I have extensive background beta testing on line games since UO was in Beta. This list also includes but not limited to Everquest, DAOC, Diablo, Guild Wars 2, Conan, Secret World, and many others. I have also done some world design using the Torque, Bigworld, C4, and Hero game engines. I would love to help, give me a shout.
I'm sure game will be great. Give me chance to test it, or just start the open beta ^^
Finally I get to be a pioneer and create a new world, thank you, thank you, thank you. Now hurry up and bring the game out or let me in to test it :-)
I just joined and would love to be a tester i have been playing Wurm Online for years and just love crafting/building games. I can't wait to see what you have to offer.
I'm quite interested in testing this game. I also play Wurm Online and this looks right up my alley.
I saw the screenshots and the video and was just like WOW, such a beatiful and interesting game.
I really liked (and still like) playing Ultima Online and would like to give this game a test :)
I would like to be a tester as well. Just as Malachi I also have been playing Wurm Online. Sense 2005. I was surprised to see a game that actually reminded me of Wurm Online in its early years. Regardless if I get to test or not. I wish the best of luck to the Team and the Testers
I'd very much like to test this. Minecraft was interesting, but too simple and hackable. And you can't punch holes in solid wood trees or put lava in a metal bucket and carry it around in real life, so why make a "realistic" game that way?
I care to join, because willingly made ??a film of the game :)
I have been looking for something like this for years! I've played minecraft, haven and hearth, stranded II, and looked at Xsyon, but I mean come on! Give us something realistic and fun! I really hope I get a chance to help you develop this game by testing it.
seems like I got to the party late but I'd love to test
I would like a shot at alpha/beta testing too. please.. ;)
I would love to join the closed beta! I already have so much hope in this game I pre ordered :)
I WANT TO BE A TESTER SO BADLY. I agree with earlier posts that Minecraft is great but not as realistic as I'm interested in. I think this has potential to cross that realism barrier.
Definitely want to test this! I've always wanted to play a game like this, and if I could test that certainly just sweetens the deal.
Watching this MMO world grow and evolve would be an amazing experience, I hope I'm one of the lucky ones :)
want to join, been waiting for a game like this for years! cant wait!
I want in! I am loving this game already!
Hello, seen this game somewhere on forums.
Looks very nice and can't wait to get in and help testing this program.
Grtz from Holland
I have some experience with alpha-testing and i take it very seriously.
if there is any software defects, i will find them and document/report it.
consider me for testing if you need a hand.
Testing spot desired :) have beta tested countless games and will provide very valuable feedback. As well I dev a small bit myself for fun, I am very keen on spotting even the smallest bug.
Sign me up , would love to help
I would love to Alpha Test :)
Happy to join Alpha tests, love exploring.
been looking for a sandboxy game since the-game-that-must-not-be-named destroyed the Shadowbane era and brought the themepark mmos. minecraft is good to kill time, but we need something much better. count me in for any future testing!
Id love to test this if im not late.
I am ready for the game... I just can't wait. :3
I too would be interested in testing. I preordered my time as soon as it was open.
With a 2 month preorder under my belt paid by paypal. Would be interested in testing.
Thanks for the preorder - added to testing.
@Argon @Oblivious @Wamfab @Kediec @pottedfrog @Flame @IanjCrossland @thejanitor
Definitely, definitely definitely interested.
I'm rather late, hah, but I can still cross my fingers!
Also late to the party, but I'd love to test for you.
I love this kind of games. I would really like to join and test. Hope you'll invite more people to join so i can too.
Hi Adam! I'm interested in alpha testing. Thanks and looking forward to an update on your progress.
I want to be also alpha tester!
@Adam Hi I would love to help you make First Earth a great game!
Hello. Since I love this kind of games and done some testing and bug hunting in similar type of games, I`m more than willing to help.
I just heard about First Earth and it looks lot alot of fun, just the kind of game I'm into, I really hope I get a chance to test it.
I saw this on a old post and I've been wanting to play a realistic game like this. I really hope I can get a chance to play this game
I would love to get a chance to test this game. I've been looking for an immersive, wilderness game for a while, and this game looks great from the screenshots and what I've read so far. Props to the person undertaking this project!
Sign me up please, would love a chance to help out on a concept like this
Please add me to the list.
This game look's like a real gem in the rough. I would really love to play with your sand! please add me to the Alpha list!
I'm looking forward to the opportunity to get to alpha test this game :-)
I would be willing to volunteer some beta testing time
I want to be an alpha tester
Here I am! I'm very excited by this project, it really seems the mmorpg of my dreams! So I would be happy to be an alpha tester!
I really want to try this and continue to play it forever plz make me a Alpha tester.
I would like to!
Been looking for something like this since UO willing to test if you need me
I'm assuming that now I just wait and see when I can Alpha test? Thank you for you email.
this game looks like it will be alot of fun i would love to help test!!!!!
Well bloody hell it would seem I am a bit late to this party (._.') oh well it would be amazing to be a alpha tester. If you could not tell by my name I would love to test the invention part of the game. Being able to test the whole game is an amazing bonus!
I'm interested in being a tester...with a coding background and experience in testing since pre-trammel UO, you can be assured that bug and play reports that contribute will be had from me.
I'd love to alpha test if there are any keys left (I just found this thread). :)
I've been dropping by, keeping on eye out on this game for quite some time now. Seems amazing.
Sign me up, Adam.
It looks like I'm a little late too but what the hell, it's worth a shot. The feature list for this MMO is nothing short of amazing. The fact that UO is referenced means I'm in the right place, though I was more active in AC (Asheron's Call) than UO.
I'm up for alpha testing even if its just running around exploring! The whole game concept it right up my street, been looking for something like this for ages. Keep up the good work.
Applying for beta test
I have been in almost all western MMO beta test in the last 7 years and have a tremendous amount of experience in writing reports and reviews because it is fun to do. But I won't spend to much time explaining how and what because I'll just wait for my turn :).
Would love to Alpha test, very excited for this game.
Sign me up for alpha please!
I'd love to give it a shot. I haven't found system requirements on the site yet, I'd be particularly interested to see them since I'm a Linux user, and I hope I will be able to play it natively or close enough.
, Linux is supported! It's mentioned buried in the Play page.
Would really love to try this out, looks fantastic!
