Why not, since the audience is asking it to be the date

....checks in.....

No one here. Well, I can wait.

....99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beeeer,
Take one down and pass it around,
That's 98 bottles of beer on the wall...
..........
..........
..........
..........
..........
...that's no bottles of beer on the wall!

Hmm. Still no one here.

Some of my favorite beta testers

Remember, we'll need beta help too - the call for that will go out mid December (with a hopeful launch of the game in mid-Jaunary).

Waiting patiently...whistle

Oh, wait.

I never asked.

WHICH December?

I haven't found my mojo for this project yet. Lots of work was started but it hasn't been corralled into workable shape yet.

Life, it seems, takes time.

It will be amazing when it gets here. I just want you and Caroline to know that you still have a group of geeks cheering you on from the sidelines. My sense of humor doesn't always translate online, apologies! :-)

On to business...
The local college has a new electronic game design degree program. As the creative media technology teacher at one of the local high schools, I will have two sections of a course entitled "The Evolution of Electronic Games" that will articulate with the college program next fall. (Yes, I have the best job in the entire world.)

We will start with text-based, interactive games, so if you'd like a group to give the game a good test play in the Fall, I could set them on it. It would count as a real world experience for them, and by working on it I think they would really "get" why these games were so popular that they never entirely went away!

It might not be feasible, but I thought I'd offer.

I have fifty students in a game design class who could beta test before you release this for the entire geek, when you get to that point.

The class is entitled "The Evolution of Electronic Game Design," so beta testing an interactive fiction game would fit right in to the curriculum, as interactive fiction definitely has its place in computer gaming history!

No pressure, of course. Just offering in case it would help.

Still looking forward to this whenever it happens!

Thanks for the offer, Starla.

We're still pre-alpha, however. A fair bit has been committed to code, but there's still a lot remaining to do. These things take time, unfortunately. And lots of tea, as well.

Mmmm, tea.
