Pirate_Ninja! Jet Presto! Chief Sonney! Xhin! To me! (Game Demo Testing)
Posted: Posted November 29th, 2018 by Laxan

Hello, guys. I have picked the four of you (Xhin by request) as potential testers in regards to the tester's demo for the game my best friend and I have been working on for a long time.

If you do not want to be a tester, then I thank you for at least reading this post.

If you do want to test the game...

Is it okay to send you a link or download file of the demo via email?

The demo should be ready sometime next week on either Saturday or Sunday for us to send out. Thanks for replying, guys.

Sure! I probably won't have time until later next week to play, but send me the link!

I am prepared to cut into my Octopath time for this :J

Posted November 30th, 2018 by Pirate_Ninja

Thanks, guy!

Have any of you seen Chief Sonny?

Jet, the demo won't be sent to you UNTIL next week on either Saturday or Sunday.

Pirate_Ninja, is your email still the same from 2013? The one we used to write the Ni No Kuni review?

What type of game is it?


Posted November 30th, 2018 by chiefsonny

Thanks for considering me. However I probably won't have the time to devote to it at this time. Lot of irl crap going on.

Posted November 30th, 2018 by chiefsonny

im not much of an expert on anything. but I would like to test it.

@chiefsonny: It's a story-driven, fantasy action RPG with SNES-like graphics built for PC. It can be played with a controller or keyboard. Basically, an indie game.

And I'm sorry to hear that. Are you sure you can't test it sometime next week or a bit later? The demo would probably take from an hour to two hours and then there's taking notes and filling out a tester's sheet.

Either way, I appreciate you responding, chiefsonny!

@SOH: I'm sorry. We already have enough testers. Thanks for asking, though!

same email works, yeah. I'll keep an eye out for it next weekend-ish c:

still asks chief to test it. Even though he says he can't.

Ah yeah. A lot of time just opened up for me, actually. So I will be able to play it in a pretty timely fashion.

Posted December 3rd, 2018 by Jet Presto

Cool! We're working hard to tweak things and wrap it up this week. The demo should be finalized-ish on Thursday night (my friend wants to get it done before Smash Ultimate comes out, and he's made a vow that he won't play Smash until the demo is ready). My girlfriend will be the first to test it on Saturday, sort of as a pre-tester. When she plays through it, we'll tweak some minor things and then proceed to get the demo to everyone else either Saturday night or hopefully Sunday.

Hey, guys.

So, the demo IS finished. We're prepping it to get it to you guys. My girlfriend is going to pre-test it (a few minutes from now, actually) and we're going to tweak a few things after we get her feedback, then send it to you guys.

I thought it would be ready to email tomorrow, but my best friend says we need a few days after the pre-testing session is over to tweak and adjust things.

Don't worry! It will be sent to you within the coming week! I'm sorry for the delay!

I'll be sending each of you a confirmation email tomorrow to make sure your email is good for receiving from our "professional" email (and see if it shows up in your spam or regular emails...).

Again, I'm very sorry for the delay! Our goal was to get it finished before Super Smash Bros. Ultimate comes out, and we DID reach that goal. It's just the prepping to send it out that's going to take a few more days. Sorry! Expect it in the coming week and keep an eye out for a confirmation email tomorrow!

(This game is real, guys! I promise!)

Confirmation emails have been sent to all three of you. Check your emails and please respond.

Probably sending you guys the demo late tonight. I'm sorry it took so long. Writing an NDA, a tester's sheet, and instructions took some time.

Is there any chance that we can get some screen shots of the game? I love me some 16-bit style rpgs.

Whats the name of your game?

I wish I could share some screenshots at this time! Unfortunately, it's an issue of confidentiality that prevents me from openly sharing any files or images of this project at this time.



Hm, I might be able to tell you the name now. Maybe. Let me ask my business partner.

We did send the demo, Jet Presto and Xhin. We need your email confirmation that you have the game and it is running fine on your PCs.

Hi. Sorry. Had to travel for family holiday parties. Just got home and am downloading it now.

I wondered, though, if anyone might have some insight on how to capture the playthrough? I know you ask we try it if we can. I've never tried to capture videos on my computer, though, so am googling around. If you have a suggestion, though, le'me know.

Posted December 15th, 2018 by Jet Presto

I just use Obs. It's free, can save to hard drive, or stream to Twitch or YouTube.

Posted December 16th, 2018 by LLight

Hey, Jet. Email us a confirmation that you downloaded the game and ask us in the email about capturing game footage and my friend should be able to give you some pointers.

Just remember--it IS optional!

Question about the game that shall not be named, are the grphics similar to SNES style of Final Fantasy games or more like Chrono Trigger/Secret of Mana?

Edited December 16th, 2018 by Q

More like Chrono Trigger/Secret of Mana.

Good, I love that style.

Is it going to be sold through steam?

Edited December 16th, 2018 by Q

We don't know yet. Epic Games is giving Steam a run for their money lately.

We'll have to make the best possible business decision for ourselves when the game is complete.

Posted December 16th, 2018 by Laxan

If it does well on PC you should see if you can get it on the Switch, X1 and PS4.

Cool. Thanks for the pointers. I haven't been able to do much of anything this weekend, but I'm planning to play it tonight. Will e-mail to confirm everything works when I get home from work and can try it out.

Posted December 17th, 2018 by Jet Presto

We look forward to your feedback, Jet Presto!

Yes, Q, we'll be aiming to release on Playstation and Nintendo consoles if the game is successful enough.
