Hi everyone :)

I'm looking for people to playtest the beta build of my physical party game -- Graveyard Snuggle. It's great for kids, families, and intoxicated adults. You'll need at least 2 people to play. The more the merrier :) And you only need 1 device per group.

If you're an iOS user, click here to join my TestFlight team.

If you're an Android user, click here on your device to download and install the latest beta build.

Graveyard Snuggle

Thanks so much! Let me know what you think :)

Hey!

I joined the Testflight team and I just want to say that on the test flight page, the android link (dropbox one) is broken and leads to 404 but the link on this page works fine.

Thanks for the games, will send you my 2 cents.

BR,

Thank you all for signing up! :) I'll be uploading a new build within the next hour or two, so you'll be able to access the game then :)

@Shahar, good looking out! I fixed the link on the recruitment page. Thanks for pointing that out!

Very cool stuff; haven't had the time or company to play it properly yet but had a little look and really like the style of the app. The sensitivity (in the brief time I played with it thus far) seemed pretty good :)

I *just* posted a new build for both Android and iOS users. iOS users should have received an email from TestFlight with a link to the app. Android users can download the latest build here.

Here's what's new:

- Tweaked the sensitivity/difficulty of the game ever so slightly
- Added some text to clarify the rules
- Added some text at the end to show you how many rounds you survived

The rules still aren't crystal clear. I need to work on that. But note that *everyone* in your group must obey the skeleton's commands -- not just the person holding the device. And you all have to move at the same time.

Thanks for helping me out, everyone :)

Lovely Art & animations!
The sounds are really good aswell and I could really enjoy listening to his voice ;)

The Game feels good, but I think it misses some UI.
But I really like the idea and it's already working fine!
Maybe you could also add something on the upper half of the screen - even though it has moving clouds, it looks a bit empty.

Anyways, the game feels fine and looks great :)
Keep it up!

Great feedback, fanta! Thanks for trying it out :)

We have a few ideas that we've kicked around for filling up the upper portion of the screen. But I was worried that the screen might already be too busy. I'm glad to hear otherwise :)

As for the audio, I would highly recommend getting in touch with Ben Briggs (he did the music and sound effects) and Sean Chiplock (he did the voice) if you're in need of stuff for your own projects. They're both great to work with!

You're welcome! :)

It's very kind of you to share the people you've been working with aswell - for the other devs and espacially for them ;)

I don't think it would look to busy. You could either fill it with some UI stuff/Timer/Clocks/Points or whatever or paint something in there instead of having a plain color.

I hope I could help! :)

I just uploaded a new Android (and iOS) build. I wish TestFlight was compatible with Android builds. Then I wouldn't need to spam the forum whenever I make an update :D

I made a lot of minor tweaks to the scene transitions and the overall pacing of the game. I also made another pass at clarifying the rules in-game. Hopefully it's getting better :)

Thanks for the feedback so far! :)

Excellent :D

I added you to the TestFlight team. You'll have to register your device(s) by opening the TestFlight email directly on your device(s) and clicking on the link inside.

It's designed for small devices like the iPhone, but it could be interesting to play with the iPad :) It would certainly make the experience even more awkward :D
