Nightmare Forest and The Kids vs The House play tested again Wednesday night. People very excited by the game play and the interactivity. Even without art they loved it. Quick, fun and exciting.
We were able to play all 3 prototype games this weekend with both gamers and designers. The reaction was very positive and awesome. Some pretty discerning people deemed Nightmare Forest :Dead Run just about ready to go. As well as The Kids vs The House.
Both look like they just need a little tiny tweak to some math (mostly base targets and health) and they should be good for mass testing and validation of the fun. All 3 designers said they liked the games – and would totally buy them. So that was great.
Lords of Rock is about 75% ready. We will be working on some tweaks and have all 3 back into testing this Wednesday.
Was fun and exciting and really appreciate the people who took the time to try the games and give feedback. A big thanks to the DFW Nerd Night community for all of the support and great response!
Come see us at DFW Nerd Night at J Gilligan’s: 400 E Abram, Arlington, TX 76010 tonight! We will be play testing 2 new games and supporting a great cause. Check out DFW Nerd Night
We are excited everyone. It is looking very likely that we will have three full prototype games for this weekend for beta testing. We will be at DFW Nerd Night in Plano on Friday at DGM probably around 9pm-ish. We will be at DFW Nerd Night in Arlington at J Gilligan’s from about 2:30p on. So, we will have lots of time. Feel free to come up to us and ask to try the games out with us. What we want to do is have everyone have some feel and input into what they life and don’t like.
We also like design suggestions and just general feedback. This first outing will help us decide which of the 3 (what we think are good designs) is the best and likely to become the front-runner for becoming the 3rd game we take to Kickstarter. Thrash-Car and Dumpster Brawl have all been well received and successful so time to do #3, #4 and #5 just want your help determining the order.
There will not be any art at this time but this is about the mechanics and enjoyment factor before the skin is applied.
We will be testing:
Nightmare Forest :Dead Run – making a mad dash through the forest as you try to fight off and escape the area that is being overrun with wild zombified forest animals all out to eat your brains.
The Lords of Rock – Play a pantheon of Gods who have formed a band and you are dueling across time and some amazing venues as you play concerts for control of the cosmos in a galactic battle of the bands.
The Kids vs The House – You are tired of that old house taking all your good toys and stuffs! You and some other kids are recruiting people to you little group of kids all racing to be the first to recover the lost objects the house is now keeping from you.
