7 Grand Steps second beta available now through Humble Store

A second beta for Mousechief Co.'s Indie Game Festival-nominated title, 7 Grand Steps: What Ancients Begat, is now available for Windows PC and Mac for $11, the developer announced.

According to Keith Nemitz, the game's principal developer, the second beta has been improved based on player feedback.

"You found bugs, and we fixed them," Nemitz said. "However, no one bug troubled everybody. Most people played for several hours before encountering one. This build should let everyone finish their games. We've also cleaned up some of the UI, reworked stories, and added stories."

7 Grand Steps combines board game mechanics, interactive narrative and historical simulation. Players begin at the advent of Western civilization and attempt to continue their family line throughout the ages while rising in class.

The game's first of three betas was released in February. For each month, the beta price increases $1, leading up to the game's expected $15 launch in the spring. Read our story on the game's creators here.
