Evertree Inn - Demo version coming soon


#1

Edit: Thanks for the help on this!! I’ll be setting up the testing link tomorrow and hopefully make a thread for people to test over the weekend :smiley:


Hello! This is my first post on the Choice of Games forum so advice and help is much appreciated!

I have just finished writing my first ChoiceScript game - “Evertree Inn” - a fantasy mystery (265,000 words) and I’ve been having friends and colleagues Beta-Test it but I would really appreciate some help from the community. Impartial feedback is the best feedback so if anyone wants to Beta Test for me, that would be amazing! I know that one of the criteria for publishing on HostedGames is that it gets tested on this forum so there’s that reason too :stuck_out_tongue:

On that note, I have no idea how to go about giving it to other people for testing since this is my first time doing anything like this. Any advice or suggestions for how I share it/how much to share would be much appreciated!

Many thanks!

Congrats on finishing your story. The best way might be to have it hosted on Dropbox and share it with everyone. It sounds wonderful and I’m sure the community would step up and help.

Congratulations!!! I’d love to beta test for you if you’d like that, it seems like a long read but I have tons of free time at the moment :smile_cat:

Thank you! This is super useful!

I think I might just put up the first few chapters for now since I’m still not sure how much of the game I should make available on here :stuck_out_tongue:

That is fine; Eventually you can make a private beta thread for testing the whole story - that is something many do.

Edit: Some make the entire thing available for feedback in the public thread and then pull the testing link when the actual game is published.

@ThomB You won’t need two threads for the same game, right?
