Important Handshakes Announcement!
« on: August 08, 2011, 12:54:44 PM »
As many of you already know, your old pal Shakes is an aspiring indie games developer. Well, today I've come one step closer.

Go see my brand-spanking new website: Stingyhat Games.com. It's pretty sparse right now and has a cool looking placeholder mech in the corner that has nothing to do with any of the games I am making now or will ever make, but still it's good.

Now, for an even more importanter announcement: The upcoming beta test of my new game Necrofrenzy.

I need to find as many brave souls as possible to put my game through the grinder. As a beta tester your job will be to find out if/where my game is crashing (and tell me about it), to find out if any aspect of the game is confusing for you/hard to figure out how to play (and tell me about it), and to see if the game is fun/crap/too hard (and tell me about it).

Now, I don't expect everyone to cover all of these different aspects. I expect more advanced users to be the ones trying to break my game and tell me how they made it crash. However, you PC gaming novices out there are just as important to me as the experts, or maybe even more important. It is up to you beautiful noobs to tell me what parts of the game are confusing or too hard.

The beta will last a month and will have four phases (one phase per week). Those accepted into the beta on phase one will get to play all the way through to the release candidate.

Of course, all beta testers will get special mention in the credits section of the game.

What is Necrofrenzy? WHY DON'T YOU KNOW THIS ALREADY! Here is some copy/pasted info from my site:
Necrofrenzy

Necrofrenzy is a commercial game coming soon (September 2011). In Necrofrenzy you play a lovestruck little apprentice necromancer who, in order to get to the lovely but very sheltered princess, must force his way through all of the King's forces. Luckily, being a necromancer, he brought friends. The stinky, worm-infested kind.

Necrofrenzy is a light arcade real-time strategy game.

  • Manage the resource of souls to wage battle against the living in order to find true love.
  • After you are done with the two-part campaign, create your own maps in the map editor.
  • Cast cool spells to help you decimate the armies of the light or buff your armies of the night.
  • Create several different unit types, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Create special boss units that give you access to more powerful spells and unit types.

In addition to all that great stuff, you get to experience all-original custom artwork by yours truly.

REQUIREMENTS: Necrofrenzy is a 2D game and, as such, shouldn't require much of a rig to play. Chances are that if your computer can view the 360df webby, it should be able to handle Necrofrenzy just fine.

Comment below if you are interested, and sometime soon I'll send you a PM with more details. Be sure to tell me what level of PC gamer you are, from complete noob to super expert.
Your mom!

What's this twitter you speak of...? Facebook...??  ;)

BTW - sign me up Shakes! I have limited experience with RTS games, haven't hit one up since the Command & Conquer: Generals and Starcraft days.  :P
But if I can help in any way, I'm game.

No problem Sambo, thanks for the good wishes.

@Failed: Somehow I knew I could count on you to try and break my game.

I'm still about a week from formalizing everything and being ready to send out official invites. I'll keep everyone posted, and thanks to everyone for their interest.
Your mom!

If you need more testers, I can send out a newsletter to all members (including the ones that don't frequent the forums).

Let me know.
