100 rogues needs play testing!

So I've been playing 100 rogues since it was just the lonely ol fairy wizard and Crusader and as much as I love this game the bugs that come out with EVERY update drive me CRAZY! Now Wes, I understand you're just one man and there's only so much we can ask, but is it too much to ask for a STABLE update before new content is added?

 

Can't you have people playtest an update before it's released? It seems to me like an update goes out, and "playtesting" is really just getting enough pissed off players to report what went wrong with the new update to the forum.

 

I'm afraid that the end result is that those less dedicated to this gem delete the app and feel ripped off... which is poor for business.

 

Isn't it possible to send people copies of the update before they are released so they can play test it a bit and work out bugs BEFORE an update goes live? I remember being so excited for this last update so I could finish my Dinoman game I was DOMINATING (+2 armor a tower shield AND an axe) and THE TOWER SHIELD STILL CRASHES MY GAME!!

 

Sorry to rant I'm just a little disheartened to see all this great new content... that feels almost unplayable because of game breaking bugs.

 

Thanks

We've tried this approach, and we simply don't get feedback. Testing a game is work, and as soon as it started to feel like work, people gave up. There's also the issue that the process takes weeks back and forth, which just didn't work given our scheduling demands. Of course, the project is no longer being funded, so there's little pressure to get critical content updates out RIGHT NOW. Still, when testers just don't install updates or send feedback, it pretty much falls to me in the end, anyway.

But, the next patch is going to be just bug fixes. I will make sure to address the Tower problem specifically. I don't know why the Bruiser can even equip it; I thought I had made it a Crusader-only item for this update.

I see... Fair enough. Makes sense that people want to just play the game not actually WORK ON the game.

 

well thanks for the explanation.
