Two Patch Pirates recently had a productive alpha test of our first virtual reality game. Seven testers came along and gave the game a good battering and in one or two cases used some tactics we had not encountered before. We managed to gather lots of useful data to help us bring the game along and learned a lot about how people play the game from observing their first experiences.
We’re happy to say that the game stood up to the test and we can now go on to develop an introduction, improve general game play further and generally polish the game.
We would like to thank all our testers for coming along to the session. We really appreciate your efforts guys and girls! A special thank you to Aron Barnes, Trace and The Prince of Wales pub for allowing us to use their room and for generally helping us to get this test done, thanks guys.
All of our testers assured us they didn’t mind if we published some photos of the session so here’s a gallery of some of the images we took.
