The lights are on
SpyParty made a splash at this year's Independent Game Festival, including being nominated for the Seumas McNally grand prize. Soon regular gamers will be able to see what the fuss is about, as its creator Chris Hecker has announced that early beta sign-ups begin today.
A post on SpyParty's website details the sign-up process, and states that it will be a paid beta, setting participants back $15. Like Minecraft's paid beta, the entry price will also land you a final copy of the game. So far the beta is only available for PC. If you're still not sure what this clever espionage game entails, check out our preview of SpyParty from this year's Indie Week.

Man, I'd love to play this... but I'm not sure it's worth 15 bucks at this point.
This actually looks pretty interesting. Of coarse the fill-out layering will have to move up a notch with better character animations and lighting, but the idea sounds very interesting actually. You think someone would have thought of this idea sooner. Good originality, guys.
I've waited for an announcement like this ever since I've read a small article about it in your magazine.
Hey, I remember this game
Okay, I'm definitely signing up for the beta. This game is just too cool.
This isn't a beta i'd sign up for, but the finished game is certainly on my list.
I remember reading about this game, but that's pretty much all I remember.
I don't know if I'll buy the beta, but the finished game could be cool.
not worth $15 for a beta
Snipe for hire!
Spy Party looks like a steak-out kind of game.
Pay money to play an unfinished unpolished game....sure! *hayuck* :D
What's next? Pay money to get to compile the game yourself?
