Hey, you! Yes you! The guy/girl reading this thread!

 

Do you own a PC/Mac/Linux Thing? Do you like RPGs? Do you like H.P. Loveraft? Horror genre? Adventure games?

 

Well, it just so happens that my team and I have been making an RPG-Adventure game over the past year or so, and we've been in beta testing for about... a while. We're just now waiting on all our VO to get in. When you are not paying anyone, people tend to take their time. It's not a Cthulhu Dating Sim. Don't listen to those that say it is.

 

Anyhow. The good news is that the gameplay is 99%. All of the functions and mechanics are in. Art is 99% (UIs and title). I just need a courageous band of brothers for the final round of beta. I also have a few rules that I would be giving you, some would be following X in the story and others Y. You get the idea.

 

Any takers?

I'd need a bit more information on what it is, but I could probably spend some time this weekend.

It roughly will take up an hour to an hour and a half of your time. The engine we are using is Ren'Py, a Python-based visual novel engine that has been gaining Steam on Greenlight. Do you see what I did there? Speedrunning it, I have been able to do the thing in fifteen minutes. 

 

Ren'Py is also known for dating sims, but once again, it is not a Cthulhu Dating Sim.

I'll help test it for you if you want. I'm free most mornings after work.

Here is the link to Army of Tentacles on Steam Greenlight:

We're more RPG. Stats, items, a whole leveling system, a time system. Events that happen on certain days. Multiple endings (maybe even 36 based on slight variations!).

If any of you steal my "Deep One Dating" idea, I will hunt you down.

On-Topic: I've found that my schedule is hectic at best, but would be willing to take a crack at it.

It can't be all bad if it has a Velociraptor bobsled team.

We'd still appreciate your comments, even if they are "X, Y, and Z are horrible".

I'm pretty busy so can't test, but good luck and I'm going to buy it.

Don't take much of what some posters say to heart.

Where do I sign up?

Everyone interested PM me. I'll take count and distribute different player choices to different testers when I have a full count.
