New RPG Alpha Looking for Some Testers
It’s always fun to watch the development of something from the ground up. Installing it when it’s not much more than a mere shell of an application or ROM, and then flashing the final product to see how far it has come since its earliest testing. One thing that users usually don’t get this experience with is video games, as testing doesn’t really happen until everything is in place. However, XDA community members now have a rare opportunity to help test a RPG game before completion.
XDA Senior Member Sh4itan is building a game currently called Project Eldina. The game itself is far from done, as the campaign still needs to be implemented. However, anyone who wants to test it can still try out a number of features, including:
create a hero
browse through some text

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
