Request for Beta-Testers for ParserComp Game: Return to the Stars

Hello everyone.

As the title says, I’m looking for beta testers for my ParserComp game.

“Return to the Stars” is a rather short (I’d say around 30-45min) military-themed sci-fi game in which you must escape from captivity on an alien planet. There are some puzzles, but I wouldn’t call it a “puzzle game” – there’s a good deal of exploration as well. It is implemented in Inform 7 (Glulx).

The game is nominally complete and fully playable. I’ve already fixed a number of issues that came up during an initial “alpha-testing” playthrough with friends, but I’d like to get some more IF-experienced eyes on it before it goes out the door.

If you’re interested, send me a PM or email me on

Thanks in advance
– Adrian

(Update: I have plenty of feedback to work through for now. Thanks everyone!)

I see no answer to your call for betatestig.
I can do some work so your game is a short one.
Let me know if you are interested.

Hi Jade,

Thanks for your interest. I’ve had some private replies and have plenty of feedback to go through for now. I might ask for more testers later on, but we’ll see.
