IGF was definitely worthwhile. It was awesome to see our game between hundreds of other independently developed titles. I look forward to seeing Eras of Alchemy in the mix this year.

Sheado.net marks two milestones as the company releases the alpha version of their game Eras of Alchemy while also submitting the game to the 2014 Indie Game Festival. In this game, the apocalypse has wiped out almost all living creatures on Earth. The player is tasked with repopulating the world with a gameplay that is similar to The Factory mini-game in Furdiburb, and other alchemy games, where players use combinations of living animals to discover new creatures.
The company has previously submitted their first game, Furdiburb the virtual pet, to the Independent Games Festival awards. Artist Danny Ata says, "IGF was definitely worthwhile. It was awesome to see our game between hundreds of other independently developed titles. I look forward to seeing Eras of Alchemy in the mix this year."
Eras of Alchemy debuts on the Getjar market, where the company's lead developer hopes to get feedback on an early, but playable, version of the game. Chad Ata remarks, "rather than guess what people will like or dislike about our games, we'd rather ask them. We hope to get tons of feedback with these early releases of EoA so that we can make the game awesome for all to enjoy!"
Giving gamers access to beta versions has been a staple at Sheado.net. It was a method that was used in Furdiburb, and now with Eras of Alchemy. Giving reason to why beta testing is so important, Alice Lo, developer and composer, explained, "the players are helping us brainstorm on how we can improve our game while the game is in development so that we may prioritize accordingly."
