aaaaalright.
this fucker is talking some crazy shit right now, you guys.
Apparently, this release “beta start” is the UNCOMPLETED version of the game, and a password will be given after the much larger “alpha” file is released. 
After seeing this, I researched game release phrases, and basically this dude has it wrong.
An Alpha game is generally said to be a a rough-draft form of a game: but it’s still completed! it’s given only to game testers, and rarely released for public use/testing.
A Beta is the Alpha game after it’s been testing, reported on, and fixed - it may still have bugs and glitches, but it is generally the first file available to the public for testing.
Any game released after its Beta stage is generally said to be complete, unless it is updated using a downloadable patch.
Now, don’t you think someone actually creating a game with a “developing team” would know something about games and how their releases work?
Please don’t trust this person, or download the files. Wait patiently for explanations. I’ve received correspondance from many different people (some of their asks ive published) who are trying to help me figure out these files.
So far, I’m thinking the kill.me is not harmful to your computer but it COULD be - it’s most likely there as a self destruct file. the DLL (2005 one i think?) can be VERY HARMFUL. This whole thing could be a dumb prank, or a Trojan, which, to quote wikipedia is:
A Trojan horse, or Trojan, is a type of malware that masquerades as a legitimate file or helpful program with the ultimate purpose of granting a hacker unauthorized access to a computer. Trojans do not attempt to inject themselves into other files like a computer virus. Trojan horses can make copies of themselves, steal information, or harm their host computer systems. Many trojans rely on drive-by downloads or install via online games or internet-driven applications in order to reach target computers.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE FILES.
