A bit of beta history...



  • Bugmuncher: hehe
    Bugmuncher: at least it isn't Cythera.
    HKtheKestrel: hey!
    HKtheKestrel: I liked Cythera :)
    HKtheKestrel: it had, and I quote, "More bugs than a dead corpse"
    HKtheKestrel: but it was still enjoyable :)
    Bugmuncher: You didn't have to test it for 2 years...
    HKtheKestrel: hehe
    Bugmuncher: And the corpses were quite buggy before release.
    HKtheKestrel: you one of the testers for Cythera, huh?
    HKtheKestrel: hehe
    Bugmuncher: You could say I was a tester.
    Bugmuncher: I'm listed in the credits as "Corpse Abuser"
    HKtheKestrel: lol
    Bugmuncher: Cuz I found the corpse daisy chain bug
    Bugmuncher: and I made NPCs sleep with corpses
    Bugmuncher: and I used corpses as purses
    Bugmuncher: and I made the corpses carry each other, causing the same infinite loop that occurs in nature when kangaroos jump into each others' pouches.
    HKtheKestrel: hehe
    Bugmuncher: And I stored them in my sock drawer
    Bugmuncher: and I put them on the dinner table
    HKtheKestrel: ...that sounds like fun :)

    amusing, huh? :)

  • I'm pretty sure Cythera's (being about 10 mgs of data) beta wasn't quite 2 years. As EVN's was only about 15 months (80 mgs).

  • I regard Cythera as a public beta :rolleyes:.
    I can't even fish in the game!

    luck is beating the odds, bad luck is when they are the odds of having something bad happen to you.



  • No one can. (fish) Cythera is full of bugs, as said before…

  • See, that's why I'm so lucky. I've barely started playing, therefore not subjected to all the bugs, but I still know almost everything about it! ;)

  • Pop-pop.....is that actually still around? I think the beta testers are getting kind of fed up with it.

  • At this rate, we might actually see it! It'll take a little bit, but the latest news is they're nearing some of the final betas.
