I'm the developer of a game called Pickin' Panki and I'm in need of playtesters.
This game focuses on exploration and finding secrets. That's what you'll be doing for most of the time, so if you're into old Zelda-games and similar titles, this might be for you! A good chunk of the game is optional content, but the end can be reached in around 12 hours of playtime. The version I'll send out is a build that allows you to save anywhere, as well as skip to later areas in the game in order to make the whole thing quicker and easier.
So what needs to be done? First and foremost, I need people to play the game from start to finish. Up until now I've done most of the playtesting myself, but for the full release I'm gonna need some assistance. Help me hunt down bugs and weird glitches. I'm also interested in general feedback. So tell me about your experience!
As a playtester you'll be included in the game's credits and as a token of gratitude you'll recieve a personal thank you note and doodle. DM me if this sounds interesting!
The focus of this game is exploration, discovery and reward. It aims to capture the simple look and feel of games like Link's Awakening and Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru.
EATING: There are many types of food in this world. The kid never has to go hungry. When you eat something it will increase your maximum energy limit. The increase varies depending on the type of food, but every little piece matters.
FIGHTING: When standing face to face with a monster it is time to test your strength. The fight command makes the kid engage the monster, but the method of attack is all up to him. The kid will lose energy whenever he takes a hit. If his energy meter gets low he will not try his very best. Restore his energy by giving him fruit drinks.
EXPLORING: Sometimes you will stumble upon a mysterious hole or a cave. You can explore these at your own pace! The kid is so strong he can shatter rocks with his bare fists. This lets you dig through walls and dirt that may seem impassable at first. A curious adventurer may find both food and treasure hidden deep underground.
* The full release of the game will include a 40-page instruction booklet. Complete with item descriptions, sneaky game hints, as well as character art and profiles.
