Looking for testers!

Post by Gustaw » Wed Oct 15, 2014 9:40 am

Darkwood's major updates (like the upcoming Alpha 2) will have pretty large changes. Working on specific parts of the game for a long time can lead to big shifts in balance.

That's why we're looking for several Darkwood enthusiasts to consult and test these updates before they are publicly released. If you would like to participate, please send us a bit of info about yourself at initiation@acidwizardstudio.com!

Divide darkwood into 2 versions :

Somewhat-STABLE wich would be one after major bug fixes and little more balanced.
and
UNSTABLE wich would be version with new stuff,unbalanced and bugged.Get response from players about new stuff before balancing it and get reported all them bugs.Get KILL/DEATH ratio and other statistics.

Starbound used same premise.
sorry

It would help if you would guide us a bit, throw down some rough guidelines or even requisites of what to add to the email to make sure that we can aptly do our job as Testers.

Oh and thank heavens you guys are alive.

Im guessing general prereqs would be:

1. Brief testing cv/resume
2. Brief overview of genres played most or which ones most enjoyed

And most important

3. Be a Wizard
