Olvand is a little multiplayer sandbox RPG, where the players live in self-built towns and can go on all kinds of adventures together. Imagine living with your friends in a small town in the mountains, or creating a new group of friends in a pub in the metropole you all live in. There will be several mini-games the inhabitants of a server can play together, among which will be combat based games like King of the Hill or Capture the Flag. You will be able to play against other people in your city, or as a city against another city, or as a whole server against another server. The combat works with self-built guns, in which all kinds of powers can be combined to create unique effects.

Since it is an "invite only" game at the current state, is anybody here that might invite me to give the game a try? It sounds funny and somewhat innovative, but i'm unsure if it really works, so i'd like to give it a try. And besides, since i'm softwaretester in my job i might help the game too :)

Would it be possible to get an alpha invite for this? It looks very innovative and fun and I'd love to be one of the first to try it out.

Hey I'm a small youtuber wanting to play and record this game. Is that allowed? and how long til the game comes out? or at least get an alpha invite? I am more than willing to make a video within the first day of getting it

Oh and if you want, you can check out my channel at :https://www.youtube.com/user/XxYellowGamingxX
I know internet promises are hard but I will promise to make a vid on it
