As a thank you to the CoG/HG forum community, I will be opening a preview of my upcoming contest entry Isolation: Deep Dive beginning on November 20th and it will ongoing until November 24th.
This will showcase about 66% of the game, including the stat-mechanical structure and the latest re-write of material up to a predetermined point.
My primary goal is to get first impressions from a general populace before moving to more focused and frequent testing. My secondary goal is to gather possible candidates for the scheduled December Beta test.
Ideally, I’d like to pick some of my future beta testers from those who participate in this limited preview.
Those with a history of participation in the forum community and who enjoy sharing their impressions of Works in Progress are preferred candidates for this limited showing.
I also ask that you be at least 18 years of age as of November 20th; some content may not be rated for everyone and until this is finalized I would like to stick to the age requirements of the next lowest rating which is 18 years of age.
If you have a few hours of free time this November 20th-24th and if you wish to participate in this preview, please post a comment below.
The amount of content being previewed will exceed the minimum required by the contest (100,000 words and 20,000 words per play-through) although the preview will not be a complete game.
I will leave this thread open until the end of the event on the 24th and will be sending out PM invites starting on the 20th.
As always, I want to thank in advance those who decide to participate. With community participation I hope to make a better game then I would be able to produce alone.
As the Team Leader of US Navy Demolitions Team 3, you will be leading your dive team on a mission of extreme danger involving The Yukon a wreck off the coast of San Diego California.
Possible Enemies and Hazards Include:
1 - Sharks
2 - IED’s and other underwater explosives
3 - Foreign Spies
4 - Vampires?!
Will you be able to navigate the social dynamics of a diving team both in the field and off-duty? Can you survive everything thrown at you? Will your professional relationships with your dive team members turn into something more?
Join the preview to find the answers to these questions and more!
**I want to thank everyone that has responded so far. **
I will be sending out PM invites starting on the 20th and everyone who has responded should be receiving one. I am resisting responding in the thread itself in order to keep the focus on the preview.
I also appreciate everyone who showed their support by liking my thread. Thank you for that!
The Preview has officially ended - It was a great event supported by wonderful participants.
I’ll be running a December Beta, so if you’d like to participate in that, keep your eyes out for the sign up thread!
