I’ve been looking at writing and publishing a game through the hosted games label - I wasn’t sure if I should post on that section, or if it was reserved only for discussion of specific games. I have a few questions:
I understand that I have to post a public beta test on the hosted games section, but I can find any rules/guidelines. Can anyone explain the process (what must I post, how finished does it have to be, what constitutes the test being ‘finished’?)
I’m not an artist, I know most games have minimal art anyway - are there people around happy to offer their services in this department?
Obviously most (or all) games now have some kind of pay wall; whether for the full game or the remaining chapers. Two questions:
- Who decides the pay structure for a game?
- If the public beta test has to include the full game, then can you not access any pay to play game through the beta test? Or am I missing something?
Thanks for any info.
