Alexandria Project - Recruitment
(All questions not related to the Alexandria Project will be deleted, so please be mindful)
We currently have a new and exciting feature in the works where you’ll have the chance to show that you’re the most skilled Player in Our World!
We’re looking to expand our Alexandria Project to gather more feedback from the community while we develop this feature (and many others!).
Below you will find a short overview of what this program consists of. If after reading this you still have questions, don't hesitate to ask on this thread!
What is the Alexandria Project?
The Alexandria Project is a group of Players who receive early info on upcoming features, updates, Events, Group Boards, etc. This group also helps our development team to guarantee the quality we consider necessary to our game:
By participating in the evaluation of new ideas, from the prototype stage to their full completion.
Through early access to game versions and features.
In helping us headshot each Bug Walker in our way.
Members of this program vary in skill but they are knowledgeable about game mechanics, game economy balance, and have some idea about the wishes and preferences of the larger game community. They give balanced and reasoned feedback in the areas they are involved in.
A member of Alexandria Project should:
Love playing Our World! At the same time, you should have curiosity regarding future updates, which might be disclosed to you from the early stage.
Be interested or even versed in game development.
Be prepared to deal with all the stimulating challenges this process can offer.
Work together with the NG Team to achieve brilliant new features and releases with enthusiasm and an objective eye.
Be able to give feedback using information and knowledge of the game.
Be eager to become an important part of a friendly, exclusive team; united by common goals and love to take down Walkers.
Are there any age restrictions?
Yes, you can only be part of the Program if you are 18 or older since all the volunteers must sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
What are going to be my tasks?
The duties may include:
Actively participate and communicate with the Project team.
Writing constructive feedback that accurately describes your opinion about new features and contents.
Play with early release versions of the game and report any Bug Walkers, then writing accurate reports.
Familiarize yourself with the wishes and preferences of the larger OW community.
Are there any in-game benefits or any other kinds of perks?
Being part of this program does not grant a salary nor access to additional in-game resources. The volunteers in the Alexandria Project are driven by the love we all share for Our World. There will be numerous advantages including but not limited to: access to advanced information and/or access to upcoming versions of the game and also the ability to communicate and work closely with some members of the Our World team in an exclusive Research Facility on Slack. There, we will work together to create an even better game.
