Entry #107

will you beta test my game?

I'm going to be finishing Crypt Shyfter: Dreadnaughts this week and I'm looking for a few people to beta test it before I make it public!

You wonderful guys and gals will help ensure that I don't look like a dunce with mustard on my shirt when this thing goes live because I spelled "badass" wrong or the game is riddled with errors.

As a beta tester, you'll be added to the credits with a link to your userpage. 

Your mission, should you choose to accept:

  • ​Identify errors. They're super easy to spot because they say "ERROR" in bright red
  • Identify passages with weird codes in them. Also easy to spot. They look like this: <<if>> or [[Goto]] or $gender == "true"
  • Find broken links, or links that lead to passages that don't make sense. For example, if you tell Lady Rose to stand by the door and suddenly Lantheon is standing by the door, that's a goof. If you're walking around and suddenly White Lotus is talking to you like you're old friends even though you've never encountered her previously in the game, that's a goof
  • And finally, point out any spelling or grammar errors

​I've done TONS of testing myself and I'm PRETTY sure I caught everything, but nobody's perfect and this game is MUCH more complex than my last games. There's bound to be some weird error where you pick an ally in the beginning and they just disappear at the end, or you have an item at one point and then when you try using it nothing happens.

So if there's anything wacky, please let me know! You can comment below or PM me if you're interested in testing and I'll give you access and add you to the credits when the game is posted.
