After spending the past few weeks testing, tinkering, and toying with our latest experiment, we are finally ready to unleash our new platform on the world. Yes, we are finally ready for the masses to meet Alpha, an exciting new interactive community from Nerdist (that’s us!) and Geek & Sundry (our pals!). If you can’t wait to get started, skip the explanation and sign up for your free 30-day trial right here.
You may have seen our initial announcement, screened some of our new and returning shows, or even participated in our early access period where we had a handful of diehard fans check out what we’ve been working on and give us feedback. But in case this is your first time hearing about Alpha, let us lay it all out for you.
In the words of our illustrious Nerdist overlord Chris Hardwick, Alpha is like our very own community clubhouse! Once you sign up, you unlock the key to a treasure trove of stuff, including:
- Advance episodes of shows like Wil Wheaton’s TableTop, Because Science, and The Dan Cave
- Interactive elements to beloved sagas like Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role
- Brand new series from folks like Matt Mira, Janet Varney, Epic Rap Battles‘ Zach Sherwin, The Tin Can Brothers, and more
- Access to Nerdist and Geek & Sundry IRL events like Comic-Con and SXSW
- Forums and chats to connect with your fellow fans
- 10% discount on purchases from both of our stores with NO restrictions
- …And so much more!
Now, you’ll notice that you can find our shiny new community over at ProjectAlpha.com, and that’s because this is so much more than a straightforward video platform. We made Alpha for you — the fans, the community — to create your own space to talk and obsess over the things that you (and we) love, from science to tabletop games to books and superheroes and sci-fi and escape rooms and… we could go on. It’s a team effort, so above all else, we want to hear from you: What do you like? What else would you like to see? Where can we improve? Remember, you get a free 30-day membership when you sign up, so you’ll have plenty of time to explore. Once your 30 days are up, you can stay on board for just $4.99 a month (or $49.99 a year)!
We’ll be keeping you up to date with new changes and updates and all that jazz over on our official blog, but please make sure you’re sharing your thoughts and feelings with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as you check out everything Alpha has to offer!
