All World Pro Wrestling -- HEART'S CHOICE -- BETA TESTERS NEEDED

You’ve just been chosen to become a trainee with the legendary All World Pro Wrestling league! You and the other trainees will…(man, writing this copy just makes me laugh out loud)…master moves both in the ring and out! Will you find love on the mat, or just lots of sex?

A spicy, m/m, bd-inflected erotic romance. Coded by the legendary @JimD.

INCLUDES EXPLICIT SEXUAL CONTENT.

Email me, jason AT choiceofgames for access. DO NOT SEND ME A MESSAGE THROUGH THE FORUM MAIL SYSTEM. When you send your EMAIL, include your forum-name, your real name, and the game you want to test.

DO NOT POST ASKING WHAT MY EMAIL ADDRESS IS. The first test to becoming a beta tester is inferring what it is based on the above paragraph.

(You cannot be testing two games at once. Send feedback on one and you can apply to another.)

I will send you a link, a username, and a password.

Return feedback TO ME. Preferably part of the same thread, rather than a new email.

I’m looking for “high level” and “low level” feedback. Not mid-level feedback.

Low-level = typos and continuity errors. A continuity error is when a character’s gender flips, or someone comes back from the dead, or you run into a plotline that just doesn’t make sense (because it’s probably a coding error).

For these low-level issues, SCREENSHOTS are VERY HELPFUL. If you see a problem, take a screenshot, or copy and paste the text that is in error, and email that. Also, the “BUG” button is great; but if you use BUG, make sure to say in your email who you are, so I can give you credit for the report.

“High level” feedback has to do with things like plot, pacing, and characters. “Scene A didn’t work for me because x, y, and z,” is useful feedback. “B character was entirely unsympathetic, because u, w, and v,” is also useful feedback.

“Mid-level” feedback describes things like grammar, style, or the use of commas. As I said above, I do not want mid-level feedback. In particular, DO NOT WRITE TO ME ABOUT COMMAS.

“I had a great time and saw only a few spelling errors,” is not useful feedback. In fact, it’s the sort of thing that results in you not being given access to future betas.

Some examples of useful feedback:

In Choice of the Dragon, you get to choose what type of wings you have: leather or scaled. Someone wrote in and asked about having feathered wings. Great suggestion! Done!

In “The Eagle’s Heir,” someone asked about Eugenie. They said that the romance moved too quickly–because she only appeared in the last third of the game–and wished they could have had an opportunity to meet her earlier. So the authors added an opportunity to meet her and start the romance earlier in the game (in a scene that already existed).

In “Demon Mark: A Russian Saga” several people commented on how the PC’s parents were unsympathetic, so the authors added a choice or two to deepen the relationship with the parents in the first chapter, to help better establish their characters.

Similarly, pointing out a specific choice and saying, “this is who I imagined my character was at this particular moment, and none of these options seemed right for me. I would have liked an option to do X instead,” is really helpful feedback.

Another useful piece of feedback: if you choose an #option and then the results of that #option don’t make sense. Like, if you thought an #option might test one stat, but it seems to have tested a different one.

I’m interested, but what’s the age range for this game?

Great question: 18+

Should there maybe be a new subforum for adult content beta tests?

M/m bd is man/man bdsm?

2 Likes

basically, yes. But bd, not bdsm.

THIS IS FOR REAL? Is this hosted or official?

It’s Heart’s Choice; so, neither.

Could a cis girl apply for the beta? I mean I will buy the game but I don’t know if my feedback would be useful in a mm game. Just the story sounds super interesting

Mara, I emailed you the link two or three weeks ago. Did you not get it?

No I will check my spam list my mail sometimes flag real email as spam.
Edit @jasonstevanhill sorry for didn’t replay that mail it was right in the spam I will check game ASAP.

Ooh, well I’m very excited to have a game made for MLM. With the mention of sexual content and my (admittedly very specific) sexual discomforts, I will await the release with caution yet eagerness :heart:

Quick question: is it locked to a cis male protag?

The PC is male, there isn’t an option to specify trans, I don’t believe.

Ok! I figured as much, but the ‘explicit’ in that warning had me wondering if the PC would be directly referenced as cis. Playing a cis man protag helps my dysphoria sometimes, so it was just general curiosity on my part :man_shrugging:

Well, at one point you pick your penis size, so while not explicitly cis, there’s a lot of discourse around your…package.

I’ve had a bunch of testers apply already. I’m going to wait for a new draft before sending out any more invites.

Thanks everyone!

Feel free @jasonstevanhill to erase this if you think is not fitting.

People i will be brutally sincere as always I have read the beta. And I could tell that i love the story and is not only erotic it also has meaningful choices and storyline.

So not let your prejudices stop playing wonderful games. Even if you aren’t gay of a male like is my case you can have fun playing it and role-playing something different for awhile. Maybe will open your eyes to other people realities that’s the fun of Interactive fiction.

Another question, do we get a choice in what gender we want?

It is a male on male game. you are a male that likes other males
