Re: [Audyssey] Testers needed for Hearts Online game

2008-12-02 Thread Greg

Hello,
This sounds interesting.  It has been years since I played hearts.  Are you 
going to have it so you are playing partners or is it going to be everyone 
verses everyone?

Thanks,
Greg W.

Subject: [Audyssey] Testers needed for Hearts Online game



 Hi all,
 I've been developing an online accessible hearts game over the past few 
months, and it is now at a stage where I would like to open it up for more 
testing.
 If you are into card games at all, you will really like this one.  It has 
a unique user interface, and since it connects through a dedicated server, 
connecting to a game is a breeze.
 If you aren't familiar with the game of hearts, it has remained one of 
the top card games in the world for decades due to its addictive nature. 
It is very easy to learn, not so easy to master.
 The online version is completely playable as is, but I haven't added much 
in the way of sound effects and the like.
 I would like to add perhaps 6 or 8 testers to the beta team, so there 
will be more games available online for players to connect to.
 As it stands, there is no artificial intelligence in the game, so 4 
players are required to be online to play.
 The game requires .net framework 2.0 and of course an internet 
connection.
 If you have any general questions about the game, feel free to post them 
here on list.
 If you want to be a tester, send me a message off list to my email 
address:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]
 I will be adding the new testers over the next few days.  Take care,
Che (Pronounced Shay)

Hi che.

Just a couple of questions.

While I fully understand the game is in beta now, and so far from the final 
version, will you be thinking of adding sound effects or computer opponents 
in future?


Second, just checking, but I assume the game runs with Sapi?

Lastly, I do remember hereing you say something about offering a game with a 
subscription. While I'm not against the idea of subscription games, I would 
be interested to know how much you were considdering charging?


I ask because I've actually just finished demoing and writing up game 
entries for the All in play games on audiogames.net. I found myself very 
much enjoying Texus holdem, and considdering subscribing. The only reason i 
haven't is the price.


while I'd have been quite prepared (and could afford), three dollars (around 
two pounds at the moment), a month for a game I like, as I'm fairly 
indifferent to crazy eights and the Anagram game, which also come with the 
eight dollars package, I wasn't prepared to pay $8 (almost five pounds at 
current exchange rates), a month for one game I liked, one game (five card 
draw poker), I could probably enjoy on occasions, and two games i was 
moderately indifferent to.


Obviously sinse your only producing the one game this doesn't apply,   
but I would be interested to know your plans, particularly if you were 
thinking about other subscription based card games.


Btw, this isn't a complaint against All in play, my financial situation is 
probably not average, sinse I am living on my own, therefore paying all 
bills, pluss attempting to pay part time Phd fees, on Uk disability and 
incapacity bennifits. I'm only lucky that none of my hobbies are 
particularly expensive, lol!


Beware the Grue!

Dark.
