…I can’t believe I missed this thread all this week!
It’s been kind of an absurdly busy week, and I guess I haven’t actually been to the site in a couple days, and apparently the forum isn’t emailing me automatically!
I think I’ve posted this before, but my feeling is that I’m not going to take money from anyone until I feel that the game is absolutely worth paying money for, and I don’t feel like it’s to that point yet. But it’s been getting a lot closer, lately. The big thing the game needs more than anything else is just more content right now, so it’s a matter of finding good artists (not a problem) who have some time to make models for me (seems to be more of a problem, right now, and for the last few months). I have a couple leads.
With all that said, I’ve traditionally brought new testers on at each milestone build. (I only bring on new people at the milestone builds because I typically only update the tutorial to be ‘correct’ for the current game rules right before doing a new milestone build; I don’t want to contaminate people’s experience of the game by having them first play it using a tutorial that tells them to do the wrong things!) If you’ve sent me a message, you should be added during the next milestone build; my inbox is the first thing I look through when looking for new testers.
