Hi all,

Due to an error on our side, Stage 0 was playable for only a couple of minutes earlier today.

For everyone who went in - you guys are fast! :) - we hope you like what you saw, but please temporarily regard your experience as confidential. Above all, avoid sharing any screenshots or other footage. This will greatly help our efforts to get the news out internationally. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation! Stage 0 is expected to be available to everyone within the next couple of days.

Stay tuned,

The Vertigo Games Team

Well, it looks like something went terribly wrong.

It's named Alpha 0 for a reason! :) Be patience, we can dive within the next few days.

Maybe a tip, what about releasing The Swimming pool Module in waves? You can control the bandwidth more if you release it in waves.

Thanks for at least informing us. I can think of similar situations with other games where there was no info given by the devs (not you guys, obviously.)

Hi the reason was that we (me and Richard) are in San Francisco right now for the GDC. We had some interviews with IGN, Polygon, Destructoid and some more (New York Times wooot). The idea was to release the demo together with a press announcement... So we will do this in the next couple of days..

I work from home on my laptop so I get to check the forums regularly all day every day since day 1 of the game, and I missed it too :(

Not me, I got a 8-4 (working 9-5 is over rated) job right now and two possible interviews for two different prisions to be a CO. But my name is on a waiting list so I won't know anything for sometime.

Current status: working 2-10 really s*#k ^_^

Will there be a non-disclosure agreement for the pre-beta game? Just curious; a lot of games don't want their early bugs publicized.

Have to say it's impressive to see how much effort you guys put into WoD.
Referring to working in the evening and the weekend, I'd almost feel guilty.

Well the overall feeling was good. There actually was a reported who said when leaving; ''I feel like I was on a break'' . An other reporter told the New York Times reporter about the game.. So maybe we will be mentioned in a review in the Times about VR on the GDC..

"I feel like I was on a break" sounds like exactly what I'm hoping for.

Yep!!! Hang on divers! is matter of a days now! I think the dev are very busy at this time (and you thought to i guess) and even if the Stage 0 is a test i'm sure they do their best to polish it in a maximum they can!

they shouldn't have told us about the stage 0, they just should have surprised us with it when it's ready !! the problem now is that we are waiting for long time, and spend a lot of time here , refreshing again and again, so frustrating :) but of course i undestand they are busy and need to take their time to fix it , i'm not blaming them for that .

I think the confusion came from the news sites saying World of Diving beta would be released the week of GDC xD

I have spend allot of times waiting for updates and games to come out. the problem is that when the devs say a date, People are disappointed when the have to postpone. But when they do deliver and it is not up to scratch people will complain that the should have waited and polished it more.. So i will wait patiently. :D
