Scurvy Scallywags Android Testers!!!

Jan 18, 2014 quarter past eleven am

Beta testing is full

Whoa! You can't be reading that right!?! Is the Android version of Scurvy Scallywags nearing completion? Yes! You are reading it right! It's not a dream or a over-the-counter drug and/or Netflix binge-watching induced hallucination.

But before we release the game, we need some testers and that's where you come in.

If you're interested in testing an early version of Scurvy Scallywags on Android, contact me.

Please supply the following information:

1) Your name and email.
2) Have you played the iOS version? We need people who both have and have not played it.
3) What device or devices do you have? Please be specific as possible. Odd devices are a plus.
4) Did you play The Cave and loved it? This one is important.

We're going to start out with a small number of testers and grow from there, so if you don't hear back right away, you'll probably hear from us eventually.  The alpha/beta builds will be distributed via TestFlight.

Yar! Everyone's getting scurvy!*


* Scurvy can be prevented by eating lemons or owning a Windows 8 phone.
** For those of you wondering why this took so long, it's because I had to rewrite the entire game in c++ and wanted to poke my eyes out.

I'd make a horrible tester, but I'm looking forward to the finished product!

just to make sure it doesn't get lost in the spam folder, from which email address or domain should I expect the answer?

What's the minimum android version required? (I can't update my phone to android 4 )

Curious about the rewrite in C++ -- was the original written in ObjC? Are you keeping the two versions separate going forward or are you planning to use the C++ code for iOS as well?

Any lessons learned from the rewrite?  Would be great to hear more details on this.

Also interested in this, and adding a followup question: any specific reason for not using a multiplatform engine, like Unity for example?

You don't have a team to write things in C++ for you? I mean, you have your own blog and everything.
