PotBS - Halloween Dev Journal @ MMORPG.com
John Scott Tynes, Producer of Pirates of the Burning Sea, shares some insight into the game's recent closed beta test event that took place at Halloween.
Our closed beta test has been underway since December of 2005. By the time we launch our beta will have been going for a year and a half, which means we are getting lots of terrific real-world feedback and solving lots of problems. Betas are a lot of work for players and developers alike.
But betas are also fun. Since it was Halloween, we decided to do something a little bit special and celebrate the holiday in style!
