Join our open Beta!

Welcome back Dealers!

Today we announce that Dealer’s Life Beta is now open to everyone, meaning that you can join and try our updates before everyone else!

Wohoo!

On top of this, we just released a new Beta update (B:0.63) with our most recent changes that’s available right now to every Beta tester.

If you want to join, the process is very simple: head to Google Play Dealer’s Life Beta page and agree to become a tester! From that moment on you will be registered as a Beta tester and you will always receive our Beta releases!

We decided to change from closed Beta to open Beta because the number of players is growing fast and we would like to implement a more robust release flow, having as much feedback as possible. Furthermore, a lot of players have asked us to be able to try as soon as possible our new changes and the open Beta will be a very pleasant surprise for them. 🎁

The standard release flow will be on a weekly or biweekly basis, depending on complexity and volume of changes, and it will be:

  1. A closed Alpha only for us developers where we test our changes thoroughly (same as always).
  2. The new version is promoted to the open Beta channel and release notes are available:
    • In the “What’s new” section of Dealer’s Life Google Play Store page.
    • In the dedicated list on our Public Roadmap (where you can always check our progress, even before releases).

      The 🚀 means “In development” and the 👍 means “In Beta”!
  3. You, the Beta testers, can try every new change for a range of days that depends on the complexity and the urgency of the release (let’s say from one day to three or four days) and you will be able to write us your feedback and your advices.
    You will be able to do that on three possible channels:

    • The “Beta Feedback” form (accessible in Dealer’s Life Google Play Store page only from your device) will be your quick and easy way to contact us with a feedback or a suggestion. Remember that this form replaces the “Review” form so you will be able to send a private message to us but you won’t be able to rate and review our game unless you leave the Beta program.
    • Our Public Roadmap if you think that the issue should be publicly discussed or if the topic is too complex for a short message.
    • Our social pages (Twitter, Facebook or Google+ Community) if you prefer to contact us on one of these channels.
  4. [optional] In cases such as bug fixing or quick updates, the flow could go back to point #1, with an updated release which will be available only to Beta tester.
  5. When we see that the new version is ok and stable on multiple devices, we will promote it to Production and it will be available every player.

That’s all for now, we hope that you like this new opportunity, don’t forget to comment and let us know what you think!
