Test Aquaria 1.1.0 for Windows!

Naija Cosplay w/ Sushi

The time is almost here for testing on the new version of Aquaria to begin! The Mac version has just reached beta 3, and once beta 4 hits I’d like to start testing for Windows. If you’ve purchased Aquaria already and would like to help us with quality assurance on all the cool new features (including widescreen), then you’ll want to sign up for a chance to be on the beta!

I’m looking to recruit those who already own the copy of the game, with a preference towards those who have been active in the community. If you’re interested, (and who wouldn’t be) follow the instructions below to apply. ;)

Send an email to with the subject set to:
Aquaria 1.1.0 Windows Tester Application
You’ll want to get that exactly right to make it easier for me to filter emails, so copy and paste!

Here are the details you’ll need to include in your email:
* Your Full Name
* Order Reference # from your Aquaria Purchase
* Computer Hardware Specifications
* Your Forum Handle, if you have one
* Short Paragraph on why you’d be an Awesome Tester!

Exceptions to the above:
If you have played the Aquaria Demo before, and ran into technical problems playing the game, (for instance, strange graphics problems or crashes on start up) by all means, sign up. I could really use your help in debugging hardware-specific problems!

Keep in mind that we’re going to pick only a few people out of all those apply, so don’t feel too bad if you don’t get picked this time ’round!

Version 1.1.0 of Aquaria includes many improvements and tweaks across the board. If you haven’t been keeping up with the blog in the last while, you can check out some of the major new features in these posts:

Widescreen Support / World Map Changes / New Graphics / Change Resolution In-Game
Cook Preview / Food Sorting / Recipe List Changes
World Map Markers / Cutscene Pausing & Skipping

And as always, if you want to stay updated with big Bit Blot/Aquaria news in the future, sign up for our Mailing List!

    Kudos for you using the correct apostrophe in front of “round”. So many people get those things wrong; I saw a high profile campaign poster that had ‘08 and I just shuddered.

    I hope I get in. :)

    I was waiting for this moment! :)

  4. Paroxysm Says:

    Excellent to hear on progress. I’ve been holding off buying aquaria until the patch came out for widescreen support. I look forward to giving you money :)

  5. Quemaqua Says:

    Awesome! I’m tempted to apply solely on the basis of getting the full release to come out faster. =) If my schedule is still clear for the foreseeable future, I’d love to lend a hand.

  6. Hiro Says:

    I’d love to. :)

    I wasn’t expecting to get a chance at this. Yay. I hope I can help ya’.

  7. SoItBegins Says:

    I’d jump at the chance, but I’m already testing for Mac. I hope it goes great!

  8. Xiagan Says:

    That ain’t fair! I just switched to Linux and now I can’t apply for beta-testing. :(

  9. Hiro Says:

    Hmm, Alex, if you don’t get enough volunteers then email me again please. I havn’t signed up yet ‘cos some major virus just screwed over my computer and I figured a more stable system would be better to test on. I’ve been putting off fixing it right up but if you want more testers I’ll fix my computer right away! ;)

  10. Hiro Says:

    Infact, I just emailed you either way. ;)

  11. Warpspasm Says:

    Let’s DO this thang!

  12. Warpspasm Says:

    When and how do we find out if we’re in the beta?

  13. Alec Says:

    Hey guys,

    I’ll email the people who are accepted with more details and make a post on the blog once I make the selections! It’ll probably be a while yet. (still finishing up a bunch of other things)

  14. DangerMouse Says:

    I’m still interested. :)

  15. Windburn Says:

    Just wondering how all this is coming along, Alec?

    Like many others I’m really looking forward to another pass through Aquaria with the improvements you’ve listed above. It’s kind of itching actually :P

  16. Alec Says:

    After the Mac version’s out, I can polish up the Windows release a little bit and then we’ll start!

  17. Windburn Says:

    Terrific :) Bring on the Mac version for our apple-inclined brethren!
