Umbra Prototype Build Now Available

The weekend has given us another pre-release version of a crowd-funded title to check out firsthand, as the team at SolarFall Games has released a prototype build of Umbra for those of us who pledged at or above the necessary tier. If you haven't yet received your email, here's what you need to know from mine - including the system requirements:

In this prototype you can experiment the basics of the gameplay, have access to various spells, and kill some monsters in randomly generated dungeons.

In the beginning, follow the main path and walk over the bridge. Go to see the human with a "!" above his head and click on "Start bounty" in the menu in order to create a portal to a randomized level.

Once you accomplish the mission, go talk to the character that opened the portal to get a reward.

In the main menu, you can click the "Help the Devs" button : By clicking this button, you will connect your game session to our server. This will allow us to gather some gameplay related info, for us to test our metric system. It will really help us in the game development process, so please click this button! You will have to click this every time you start the game.
