Below are the most frequently asked questions received about Palia's Alpha playtest, as well as Palia in general! If these questions pique your curiosity, please join us on Discord, where we share sneak peeks of fan art and answer even more specific gameplay, lore, and theory questions every month!
When is Palia launching?
We’d like to run a few more playtests before we launch! Although we haven’t announced a release date yet, you can look forward to more playtests.
This is the first I’m hearing about Palia! Where can I go to sign up for future playtests?
Welcome home! We are so happy you are here. Palia is a cozy, community simulation MMO game set in a high fantasy world. If you haven’t yet, check out our announcement trailer! You can sign up for our future playtests right here on our website: Palia.com.
What’s the difference between the Pre-Alpha and the Alpha?
The Pre-Alpha was a very early look in the game with a lot of unfinished areas and characters. Also, a lot of the core gameplay was not yet complete. We invited a few players to take a look around and gather initial thoughts as we think it’s important to incorporate player feedback as early as we can. We’ve decided to start our Alpha test as we’ve made good progress and have more to show since then, including solidifying our core gameplay!
How many people were invited to the Alpha?
Never enough! We were overwhelmed with the number of people who signed up to playtest Palia last year. Although we were able to increase the number of invites from our Pre-Alpha, we’re still a long way from opening the floodgates. So if you didn’t receive an invitation this time, please hang tight—we have lots more playtests to come.
Will there be more testing phases in the future?
Yes. We’ll have multiple Alphas and Betas as we develop towards launch. We don’t know when yet, as it’s dependent on how our testing goes. We expect to receive a lot of great feedback for improvements that we would want to take action on—and that means we would need more time to develop and implement these features. We want to make sure we can make Palia the best it can be.
How can I increase my chances of getting invited?
The best option is to sign-up in our website, and answer our survey. That’s really it!
Is the Alpha under NDA? Why?
Yes. Everyone who is participating in our Alpha tests is under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and that’s why you are not seeing any streams or content. Palia is still under development, so a lot of the things in Alpha might change as we head up to launch.
