The first build of the game is a snapshot of the current early stage of development. It's awesome (!), but has very few actual features, minimal car and track content, and plenty of bugs
This represents the first step of our journey together to create the finished title. We do of course want you all to enjoy playing the build as it stands now, but equally importantly we need your help to make it better. In effect we need you to be game designers, QA engineers, and marketeers
From a design/playability perspective let us know what you think of the game now, both good points and bad points. Tell us what kind of features and content you want to see (and don't want to see!) in future.
QA wise at this phase of the project we're primarily interested in serious/showstopping bugs, the kind that prevents you from playing properly at all, e.g. it won't start up, or it crashes during track loading. At this stage there will be lots of less serious issues as mentioned above - most of these are simply a consequence of tasks not being finished yet. As we complete detailed features and content we'll let you know when we'd like bug reports on them. To give you some idea of the scale of the QA process - it's not unusual for a project of this size to encounter 20000+ bugs before it's done.
Equally importantly, we want you to help sell/market the project - the more team members we have the faster the game will progress. So tell your friends how great it is!
Have fun, and let's get to work
