About the Alpha

  • The Hash Rush Alpha is an early test of key gameplay features by a select number of players. This is a work-in-progress version of Hash Rush and as such, gameplay may not reflect the finished product.
  • Generate feedback about the gameplay. We want our alpha players to tell us about their online experience, what they enjoyed about the game, what they didn't enjoy quite as much, and of course any bugs they encountered. We'd love to know what they think so we can improve the game.
  • Test the stability and scalability of the game in order help us handle more players on our servers in the future.

Yes. Players will be able to construct buildings that allow training of defensive units. We'll reveal much more about these units and the nature of combat as we approach alpha.

The alpha will introduce combat for the first time ever, along with new units, a revamp of almost all buildings, a new questing system and the first iteration of the marketplace. We'll provide much more details on all of these in the coming weeks.

The game will launch with more planets, quests, items, and units, as well as blockchain technology fully incorporated in to Hash Rush. Tokenized items as well as the player reward pool - where players compete to earn real cryptocurrency - will all be live. Sign up to our newsletter and keep following our dev blogs to stay to on top of all of these and more.

In alpha, players will compete against each other in a live contest to mine and deliver the most Crypto Crystals. Player vs player combat is something we're working on for a future release, and won't be in alpha.

We are focusing on Windows development, and are not working on an alpha build for other platforms at this time. Alpha testers are welcome to try WINE or similar solutions to run the PC build on Linux or Apple operating systems, but VZ Games cannot offer official support on these.

For the alpha the only playable faction will the The Ernacks.

We're still making a decision on this, and it will depend on exactly which content we launch in alpha. We'll definitely let you know well before it begins, however.

The Hash Rush alpha and all related materials will be available in English and Japanese. Please make sure to submit all your feedback to the team in English or Japanese.

The official Hash Rush forums will be our primary information point, but you can also connect with us on Discord, Twitter, and Facebook! Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter if you haven't already.


For Alpha Players

As soon as the alpha build is available, we'll email you with instructions on where to download the launcher. The launcher itself will download the game binaries, and automatically install any patches we release.

Our in-game bug report system is the easiest way to let us know about any issues you experience. For more general feedback, we'll have dedicated threads on our official forums, and would love to hear from you!

We will listen to our players and take on board any feedback that will help us create the best possible game we can. We'll be ironing out bugs, balancing all of the in-game systems, making tweaks to the UI, and anything else that may come up which helps us improve Hash Rush.

Given the nature of game development, it may be necessary to reset gameplay several times during the alpha. We'll give everyone sufficient warning on any resets or wipes that we need to run.
