While at Pax East this year, I was able to make an appointment with North Star Games and see their board/digital game based on well, Evolution called Evolution. (You guys are so smart; you knew where I was going with that) The digital version is ready for Alpha testers. The cut-off date for those testers is Earth Day, April 22. Some people signed up at various events with North Star Games but this is your last chance to get to be a part of the Alpha version.
Recipients will receive a Steam Key over the spring/summer months with limited-time access. As the web site/development blog states, the Alpha version is the pre-released version of the game. It will be this way until the Beta releases at a later date. The game is all about survival and finding different ways to get the most food at the watering hole.
