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 .
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
