tester #1

October 25th, 2008 by Auriea

tester #1 We sent out a notice to our mailing list last week that if anyone would like to come to our studio and help us bug test the current builds of The Path they could set up a time with us via email. These tests are happening one person at a time and every night we try to fix the bugs found the previous day so the next tester can find what we missed and help us keep our to-do lists full of new bugs >.<
As people come to play I will draw them… just because, that is what I do if I have to sit still without a computer for any length of time. :p

Anyway, we had our first official tester of The Path come over today. What a difference it makes for us to see the game through a fresh set of eyes! We’re so busy making the game that it can be hard to find the time to really examine the total effect of a play through… or we just don’t see it anymore because we are always looking in such a specific way at specific things as we work. When someone comes and just PLAYS we see the game finally as it was intended! And we are very very happy with what we’re seeing so far!

quotation as metaphor

October 25th, 2008 by Auriea


“you cut up something that’s alive and beautiful
only to find out to find out how it’s alive and why it’s beautiful
and pretty soon it’s neither
and you’ve got blood on your hands and tears in your sight
and only the terrible ache of guilt to show for it”

– Clive Barker
