No Quarter Test Day 2009!


Yesterday we had some of the superstars of indie games come by our office for some testing of No Quarter. By merely offering free pizza and soda we were able to attract the likes of Jonathan Blow, Kyle Gabler, Alex Neuse, Chris Osborn, Mike Treanor and Derek Yu. The testing went really well, we got some good suggestions, learned how people react to the games, and along the way learned a lot about ourselves. Although no cameras were allowed out of concerns for celebrity privacy, there is this artist's depiction of the event:

I've also made a video of Odyssey as seen above, some of the superstar testers were able to land on the moon, but no one was able to successfully rendevous with the CSM. Sadly there are quite a few dead astronauts still orbiting a virtual moon. Also Derek made a "tree" in Seedling:




Clearly an argument against intelligent design.
