Testers needed for a 4X space strategy game

Hiya, folks.

We're finishing up an update to our long-running 4X strategy game for iOS, Distant Star, and we'd really like to see what you think of it before the update goes live on the App Store. Pretty much the entire game has been updated and streamlined with new art and better mechanics, so it's in need of some serious testing.

If you're interested, leave a comment in this forum and drop me an email (trevor@blazinggriffin.com) and I'll let you in on the beta. Testers get a free copy of the game once the update goes live, plus free DLC codes. Oh, and you can name an in-game planet. How sweet is that?

Check out blazinggriffin.com for more info. I can only take the first twenty testers, though, so be quick!

It is totally awesome, if I do say so myself. And the new version is approximately seven million times more awesome.

No, really. I did the math and everything.

EDIT: I forgot to send in the email that I am already familiar with Distant Star

I'm a sucker for 4x strategy games, and I've never played one on my iPad2. Of course, my productivity will probably regret me posting here, but what does it know?
