Nope, not at all! We'll be accepting beta testers up until the day we release the first beta build (hopefully sometime this week -- we'll be working around the clock to get this thing out).

Again, we'd love to have as many testers as possible, so even if you're not sure if you should join the beta, you SHOULD join

I'd love to join the beta, and already clicked the TestFlight link. I have enjoyed your games in the past so I look forward to helping you out.

I would also be interested in beta testing this.

Awesome, thanks everyone -- we have over 150 testers so far, and we'll keep accepting until the very last minute See details on the 1st page if you're interested.

In the meantime while we're waiting for the game to get "beta ready", here is the equipment menu screen (NOT final) for the Forest Cup race, showing off some of the style we're going for. Hopefully you can see the Tim Burton/Steam Punk influences.

Also, as you can see there will be a TON of customization with your snow engine, including persistent engine upgrades, equippable trinkets, and powerups. Another cool aspect is that you have to build the stuff with parts you find in game (you won't know what trinkets do until you build them), kind of like a basic discovery/crafting system. Its just a more fun way to buy and figure out what new upgrades do

Sorry for the hold up on the beta everyone... the beta is actually ready to go but we're waiting on Apple to set up our Enterprise Dev account to allow unlimited beta testers, which is taking a bit longer then anticipated... sigh.

We should have a gameplay trailer up soon to whet your appetite though
