Title: Ocean's Heart Beta Testing
Post by: Max on April 12, 2019, 09:40:39 pm
Hey!

I know many of you are aware of my game, Ocean's Heart. As of right now, it's officially in beta, and I'm looking for some testers. I'd love to have some Solarus developers looking at it especially, since you know how the engine works and would have a better idea what you're looking at if you come across something going wrong.

So if you're interested, please send me a DM or message or email or something, and I'll get you a copy of the game!

Hey!

Awesome to hear you are so far through man...so quickly as well

I'd love to test it out, is there anything in particular you want us to focus on?

Awesome guys! I appreciate it!

The biggest things I don't have a great grasp on are balance issues, probably. Since I don't know how well hidden most power-ups and stuff are (since I know where they are, haha), I'm not sure how many of them most people will find, or if they're even fun to find. I've tried to roughly balance the enemies for doing like 60-70% of the side content, but I'm not sure if the enemies are too easy, too damaging, unfair, etc.

I'm also just very concerned that stuff will be boring or unprofessional looking, haha. Also, if it's possible to record your screen let's-play style while you're playing, that'd be super helpful, but I know that's a pain to set up if you don't usually do that.

I'll send you both messages with links to the current build.
