The last month has been a bit crazy with joining up the base game and the two mini games for testing purposes. However, its a very valuable time investment because it means
- Testers only have 1 file, rather than multiple to download
- We learn how to join up our modules(mini games, base game) as they have been developed separate.
- We see the effects of joining up the game such as data leaks and slow downs,
- It allows the user to see the final picture and how the base game ties with the mini games more easily
- Programming and art work can be done on joining module mechanics. Such as money or pack of cards received in a mini game, appearing in the base game.
- Issues arising from having two programmers on board who may use different names for the same item in the game, causing the game to look like its bugged.
Alex and I have had a back on forth with him uploading versions, me testing it and sending back things to fix. Once we have no more issues it will be ready for public testing where we can get much valued feedback, not just on the mini games, and base game, but the game as a whole.
Malcolm has his list of art that he will be working on and once ready this will be added to the modules as we keep pushing forward. We are also currently testing out Steven to see how able he is to fit in some work on the third mini game when he is free.
We can’t wait to share what we have.
