Seeking Steam beta testers

#1 Postby hanako » Wed Sep 09, 2015 2:14 pm

If you already own this game and are willing to give it a whirl on Steam while we're debugging things to see if the achievements/cloudsave/etc are working right, please contact me by PM or at owner@hanakogames.com with your order information.

I am especially looking for some mac users!

There will be a special bonus for beta-testers. However, keys will be available free to all customers later, and cards will not be dropping yet, so if you don't have time to test this week you don't need to pile in on the beta, you can get in later.

on the Steam version but I don't think that's really related here I believe I may just have gotten absurdly unlucky here, but this (identical class AND meal) should not happen, no? They were faking to get out of the test, but I spent several bewildered days searching the cafeteria for contamination first.

Not a bug IMO. Just bad luck.

I mean, it would be far too convenient if the clues could never be misleading!

yeah, I'm evil

I was kinda suspecting it was something like that.

My exact line of thought at the time was "Huh, that looks like a bug. Or maybe it's just Hanako being Hanako?"

In both the non-Steam and Steam versions I cannot mute Sound. Music will mute. The volume remains on sound and I've tried saving and exiting and loading fresh, but it still stays on even though I've moved the cursor all the way to the left.

I've been playing through the beta so far and have enjoyed getting the Steam achievements. XD

Anyway, I did find a bug just now when I played through to get Miss Talmage's ending. When the credits roll to say what happened to each of the minions and Talmage, I got the following error in between Rowan's ending and Talmage's ending:

When I checked my CG gallery, Talmage's CG doesn't show up despite that I had unlocked that ending:

(I just noticed that the second screenshot doesn't show the error so it might have to be clicked on to see it fully.)

The Steam achievement for seducing Talmage shows up fine, though, and it gets checked off on the checklist in the game as well.
Please help and support me here.

Just put out an update which should fix that Talmage problem.

Still looking at the sound bug.

Latest steam build should have a fix for the sound problem

(We'll have a new build out for the non-Steam version in a little while.)

I'm not getting the first Elsa CG at the beginning of the game in Art Set 1 when I play Art Set 1, but when I played Art Set 2 I got Art Set 2's Elsa CG with no problems.

EDIT: Never mind...I got it the second time I went through. Odd.

Can/should we write a user review before launch day? Steam is giving me the option but if I should wait until launch day I will.

It's totally fine to go ahead and do it now. I think steam will automatically mark it 'pre-release review' if you do, but there's nothing wrong with that.

(edit - Apparently you can't actually post them now. I have no idea why. I know I've seen pre-release reviews on some games.)

I tried posting my review, but I get the message "You must wait until this product has been released before writing a review for it".

Huh. I wonder what actually enables the pre-release reviews, then? I know I've seen them on some games.

Oh well. :)
