Register for pre-alpha testing of the introductory chapter
To be eligible for testing the intro chapter of My Neighbor Alice you´ll need to go through the below steps via the dashboard that will be available from August 31st.
Apply via the dashboard
Step 1: On metamask switch network to BSC (check here how to do it) and connect you metamask wallet
Step 2: Connect your Chromia vault (here´s a guide to set up a Chromia vault)
Tip: Here´s an instruction video on how to setup Chromia vault, starts at 4:40 https://youtu.be/GX_QbZoVB3Q?t=281
Step 3: Enter your email address to receive a code. Think about checking the spam box if you have not received it. A new code can always be resent.
Step 4: Approve and Deposit 1 Alice via metamask (here´s how you can acquire Alice tokens, you need them on Binance Smart Chain), you can withdraw your Alice token after you´re done with your playtest.
Step 5 (landowners only): This is an optional step. If you´re a landowner in MNA you can choose to deposit your land to get priority in the line. We´ll onboard new players and those with land deposited will have priority. In order to deposit the land, you need to have it with the same account you used to deposit.
Mind this is a 2 steps operation (one approve the transaction and one deposit transaction)
Step 6: When you are registered for the early access, if you are selected you´ll receive a Steam key by email

The access is done via Steam, you need a steam account to download Alice. Retrieve the game by:

- Click “New Account”, a browser window will popup. Use the same Chromia Account that you used to participate in the early access dashboard (you can always go on the website and check it at the step 1) to log in in the Chromia vault, this acts as a “Sign in with Google” account, which also is called SSO (Single Sign-On) but on the chromia blockchain.

What to play and test in this pre-alpha version?
This is a pre-alpha version of My Neighbor Alice, which means the amount of gameplay in this version is limited to only a few gameplay features. Building & landscaping is for example not available in this test version.
‘’Meet the locals’’ quest
In this pre-alpha version, you´ll play through the introduction of the game where you´ll be able to meet and get introduced to some of the locals (NPCs) in the game which will give you some simple quests to complete.
Step 1 — Meet Alice
Talk to Alice on the dock and then meet up with her in the Town (just follow the yellow arrow to get there)w
Note: On the dock, you´ll also see José, it´s however now time to meet him yet. But if you still decide to talk to him now, you´ll be able to explore the archipelago map.
Step 2 — Meet José
Alice greets you at the Town Hall and presents some of the locals of Lummesta and asks you to go see them. Now it's time to meet Alice's brother, José at the dock. Just follow the yellow arrow.
Note: It´s not possible to buy, visit or build on plots in this test version but please have a look around and explore the archipelago map.
Step 3 — Meet Ivan the Merchant
Head back to the town again to meet Ivan, the town merchant.

Step 4: Meet Björn
It´s time to meet Björn, Lummesta´s finest fisherman. He’s waiting for you across the fence.
