Hi, everyone! I’m looking for testers for 4x4 Archipelago – a game I’m planning to enter into this year’s IfComp. I already have a couple of people testing, but I could use a few more pairs of eyes. Please PM me or reply here if you’re interested. I’d also be happy to exchange testing if you’re working on something!
About the game:
4x4 Archipelago is a procedural fantasy RPG made with Twine. You start with a randomised character and travel between 16 randomised islands, exploring, fighting, questing and trading in order to increase your power and complete your main objective. It’s gameplay-heavy and story-light, and actually very similar in concept to my 2020 Spring Thing game, 4x4 Galaxy, but has more variety across playthroughs, more advanced combat and skill systems, and, of course, it’s fantasy instead of pulp sci-fi.
The game is rather long (an average playthrough could take significantly more than 2 hours, although it very much depends on how much you explore), but there’s also plenty of time for testing. (And if you’re interested, but can’t commit any time in the nearest future – I’ll most certainly be looking for “second wave” testers in around 2 months).
