Host Holic Hits Alpha!

#1 Post by redpandagames » Sat Aug 11, 2012 5:58 am

Deadline to like is this Sunday at Midnight.

Hey guys!

We have an alpha build for the Host Holic that needs testing. We will be giving out builds to everyone who "likes" our Harvest Festival project on facebook:

www.facebook.com/HarvestFestivalAllSigns

Simply "like" the page and we will forward you a copy of Host Holic.

So easy, right?

So I played the alpha and I have mixed feelings about the game. I thought it would be a somewhat lighthearted game, but it had things that I felt that don't belong in the game.

A woman is going to Japan to teach but when you find out the mystery of what was happening to the boys it really left me with a bad feeling. I just didn't feel like this storyline fitted with the game.

I don't want to sound rude at all, and I hope that I am extremely wrong and that this game is really successful, but I am the type of person to buy these games and after playing that storyline I can't see myself buying it.

No, not at all. Thanks for telling me how you felt about it. I'll PM you to prevent any spoilers for other people playing the game.

Maybe my e-mails to you are getting blocked?

I sent out an e-mail option to receive the alpha, beta, or 0 bug build on August 1, so if you didn't reply to that, then you automatically get put on the 0 bug build option.

Did you like the Harvest Festival page before Sunday last week? Sunday was the deadline, so if you liked it after that, then I wouldn't have sent anything out.

Please PM with your e-mail address and your facebook ID me and I will take a look at what happened.

Thanks for asking! Sorry about the mix up. I'll take a look and figure out what happened.

I have beta for Host Holic!

We still are working on a few things, but for the most part, it is complete.

If you preordered the game and would like to see the beta, just let us know and we will forward a copy to you.
