It's the Final Countdown

I can't stop thinking of that song when I look at pics of the LHC ( large hadron collider )
Though I have absolutely no fear of it ending the world, somehow it just fits
that aside it's by not means the actual final countdown to anything, but I am hoping to be into early alpha / beta play by the end of this year on my main title
Hopefully in 6 months, but again christmas is my actual expectancy
While I do occasionally switch my volunteer testers from the mini game to the main game it's always for a very specific test and so far while technically working it's astounding how much work has to be done, and what I do have done is pretty much only local network, actual network hasn't even been tested yet so again lots and lots of work

The reason I'm telling you this is I'm taking applications for more testers. While I'm not putting up a formal application process here yet I may in the future. In the mean time I'm interesting in finding out if any of you would be interested in assisting me in this endeavor. The position pays nothing in terms of money, I may include you on the list of testers in the credits if you want to be included, and you'll have to be good at explaining what's wrong when something comes up which means a good vocabulary is a must. Technical knowledge and programming skills are a bonus.

So with that in mind, tell me why you deserve to be a tester, why you want to be a tester, and why I should pick you over the others. Granted there are many testers that will be needed yet I still like to hear the answers. List any relevant information or skills that will make you useful to have on the team, and what you love most about the idea of the game based on what you've read thus far.


  1. I'm going to be pursuing a career in computer science, and being a tester for a new game is going to give me awesome experience. :P. I know C++ and Java and some basic html.

    I really like the COD rank type of style for the multiplayer, so that's going to be fun to level up. The idea that we can shoot and fist fight at any time is awesome too.

  2. I'd love to do it but I'm rather busy with school right now, plus I'm taking part in the Imagine Cup Game Design competition as well, so I guess I'll have to pass.

  3. Man, I feel like a caveman when I read the stuff you guys are into.

  4. Dude I'd send you my newds and give you a free c2c to test it, but I know my specs aren't up to snuff. Maybe when that check comes in I'll upgrade 'cause I'd like to test it just out of curiosity.
