Gamocracy Invites You To Tag The Walls!

Hi everyone! The time has finally come for us to start testing the gamocracy on others then our friends. This week we completed five levels for the first world; these are the ones that will go into testing on Monday.

Testing your game on other people and LISTENING to their critique is key to getting a good game. It is our experience that it is actually very hard to get outside testers to speak truthfully about their experience with the game. A lot of the time, testers will tell you the good things and keep the bubbling frustration of that second level down. So this time around we will make sure they hate us before going into our testing room ;).

Week7_TestRoom

If you live near us in Trollhättan (I know a certain game education in the vicinity that probably has their eyes on this), just drop a mail to contact@thebeardedladiesconsulting.com and we will try to schedule you in next week to spend some time with the game. (Don’t bother if you have to travel, as you can wait until we have more of the game for you to test).

Now let’s talk a bit about this week’s challenge. If you watch the video diary down at the bottom, there are more then a dozen references to people, contributions or comments from the Gamocracy project that are already in the game. We want more! We want this title to be riddled with Easter Eggs and references to everything about this great project. So boot up your paint program and get your artwork into the final game.

Now it is time to try and make up make up for not having a video last week. So this week’s video diary is a bit longer then the previous ones and it is packed with references to the project. See if you can spot them all as some will literally fly by.

Were you referenced? (If not, you might be a gabstainer).

See you next week with some footage of the first boss, the second replaceable arm, and the South American jungle!

Don’t forget to keep the submissions coming in – you can enter and check out everyone’s entries over at your local official PlayStation forum: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Scandinavian languages. You can also get involved by casting your votes over at the Bearded Ladies facebook page.

Your are officially added to the credits as “Anglo-Saxon consultant”!
(you might want to skip it on your cv though as we have a long history of terrible spelling)

 

looking great with some really unique gameplay. Question:will the train be red in the game too? looks pretty weird.

    No. That is simply one of the units kalle hasnt had the time to go over yet.

Well, I would just say, WTH is that game ??? That urban world is exactly as I thought it, with some unmoving background, and H7 moving through the ground and the rooftops. :-)

And I enjoy the way you wanted H7 to travel to South America, because that crystal story is just so exciting, it remembers those adventure movies, with a lot of trapped heroes and wild animals… If you want, you can see that video, it shows some temple at the 4th minute, in a Megadrive game I really loved, “Donald Quakeshot” :

Here, the temple could be quite good for a character like H7 and for the way he moves…

Well, nothing more to say, apart from thanking you guys for the Easter Egg at 5:10 of your dev. diary, with the “tifil’s french restaurant”… ;-)
Just hoping now to play the game as soon as possible, because it just looks so marvelous. But don’t urge, because it’s always taking our time when we really finish something… I really like the way you guys manage to change our draws into some real things… We give you ideas and you rebuild it successfully…

Thank you tifil, glad you liked “Tifils Froglegs & Guillotines” :). Hopefully we can impress you with some nice jungles and temples next week. We really liked that you had that part of the story. It gives us a nice opportunity to add some puzzle elements in the temple parts and also of course adds variation to the graphics.

Quick question: is “japaneese” a typo or the name of the alien race? :)
Game looks very good considering you still have a couple of months of work ahead of you. Looking forward to purchase it.

Aww couldn’t you just written down who has been added to the credits? Beeing hearing impaired makes it hard to hear what people on online vids say?
Just want to see if I’ve been credited but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t :/

why no Dutch entries? (:

Game is looking fantastic, really looking forward to seeing it. And hurrah that Tartan Tam lives on as an Easter Egg!
