Who first?

Postby rotter » Sat Jan 18, 2014 7:08 am

So, who will be the first to release an ADRIFT game in 2014?

Anyone got any plans for the SpringThing or IFComp?

I've nearly got the full version of my winning 2012 Intro comp game, The Blank Wall, ready for testing.

Well, my adventure "The Axe of Kolt" is being playtested at the moment and my playtester has reached the fourth and final chapter, so testing should be completed in the next few weeks.

I have been hoping that someone else who is reliable will offer to playtest the game, but so far the few people that have contacted me have proved to be time-wasters. As usual, they reply to my call on game-testing.org and then I never hear another word from them. It is SO depressing! :cry:

One guy has sent me a couple of sporadic reports but he is busy with his own projects and real life, so I have had to tell him that if he is unable to send me at least one playtest report a week, then I would rather him not playtest at all.

My playtester has been very thorough and is sending me at least two or three transcripts a week (sometimes MORE!), but she will not have found EVERY bug. However, one playtester is better than none at all and if I sit around waiting for another volunteer the game will never see the light of day.

I have a sneaking feeling that it won't be me, though I did actually make a start on something - I feel very out of my depth these days!

I have a game well underway, but there is still a lot to do.
Hopefully I can get it finished in time for the spring thing.

Maybe it is time for Zack Smackfoot: Escape The Jungle Terror to be finshed?

Maybe, that was a game lost in the mists of time

I have a medium-sized puzzley game I'll be done with...soon-ish. And then there's the long overdue re-release of Aegis. That's all I'm definitely planning for the year, but there's all the usual little half-finished projects sitting around, and who knows, one might take off.
