Re: Play testing your game

I had a co worker play my Surban Prodigy game at lunch (I still haven't uploaded the 1.2 with a ton of bug fixes) and he was typing things like "go around the house" "stab the wall with the bone") I was losing my S**t saying "that's not how you play text adventures!!" haha

I generally prefer short room descriptions like the old TRS-80 games, since I want to play your game, not read your novel. That said I am going to focus a bit more on my writing on my next game, but it will still be less than many games...
