Hi gang! Boy, do I have exciting news! I have been asked to find some beta testers by the developers of a brand new game called Dawn of the Dragons. Now… where am I gonna find beta testers? *think think think* *lightbulb* Oh I know! YOU can beta test!
Dawn of the Dragons is a mission-list type game (like Castle Age or Mafia Wars) but, it’s in Flash. Which means that it provides players with a much better overall experience: smooth graphics, great music, and a well-organized user interface. The music is SO GOOD in fact, that it’s the only Facebook game where I *haven’t* turned the music off. And the style sort of reminds me of my World of Warcraft days…
So what they’re looking for are people who can give clear feedback about features that they come across. It’s a BETA, a *real* beta. So you are going to find bugs. When you do, please report them to their forums, found here: http://www.dawnofthedragons.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?33-Beta-bugs
There’s a sticky post at the top of the forum that describes how best to format your bug reports. There’s also a list of known issues that you don’t have to report if you come across them.
When you do report a bug, be clear in your description. Mention anything you did or saw before the bug, and repeat error messages, if there are any. Saying things such as “omg dood stuffz broke fix it HALP” isn’t going to help anyone. I told the devs that the readers of this blog are really smart and really awesome – so that’s what they are expecting. No pressure or anything. 😉
And of course, they would really like you to enjoy yourselves.
OMG I didn’t tell you the awesomest part!! They are going to give beta testers from The Facegamer a special thank-you package when the game goes live! I can’t tell you everything yet but I CAN say that there’s some EXTRA Planet Coins (the premium currency) in the mix, along with some other cool items. Here’s a teaser! (Select the pic on the right to see it) Look! They turned the gun from my logo into a crossbow!
Alright – are you sufficiently hyped-up enough to give the game a try? Follow this link to try out Dawn of the Dragons! (And don’t forget to give them 5 stars!)
