Who else is a playtester?

Post by robly18 » Wed Jun 05, 2013 5:04 pm

Say "I" if you're a playtester.

I


Also, Andy, quick question: just about how much are we allowed to leak about the game? Just wanna know in case I want to discuss the game with fellow testers.

"I" ... wait, I'm making the game, does that count?

As a heads up, I haven't seen any of the playtesters on the forum yet, but they may well show up.

And as for what you can share, I can't really think of any limits, aside from sharing the actual game. Level descriptions, game mechanics, any screenshots that'd be helpful... those are all fair game. I try to be pretty open with it all, so you should feel free to be, too.

I'm thinking about being a playtester...

I'll send an email when I decide.

What do you mean decide? What's there to decide?

Pros:
Help create epic games
Help who is possibly the most awesome person on the observable universe(You never know!)
Bragging rights.

Cons:
A new addiction.
