Merrak's WIP Games Showcase

I've been feeling like making some more videos to put on YouTube, but I haven't had a lot about my own game ready to show yet. There are already plenty of Lets Play's out there, but I thought of another interesting angle: showcasing WIP games.

If you'd like a Lets Play of your WIP game (or even finished game--nothing wrong with that), let me know and I'll feature it!

How it works:

I'll record footage of playing the game for the first time, so you get some insight into how well new players can pick up your game and learn it. I'll then give you a critique... what I like, don't like, etc. Also, if you give me specific questions to answer, I'll answer all of the ones that I can.

Interested? First, here are a few things to note.

I use Linux, so this means I can play web-based games, native Linux games, or Windows games using Wine. I can't guarantee there won't be glitches with Wine, though, so keep that in mind.

YouTube is also very strict about audio copyright--so if you don't own or have the rights to any music in your game, I'll have to play it muted.

Finally, I can't play your game in full screen mode and also record footage, and that kinda defeats the purpose of a Lets Play  :P So be sure your game runs in windowed mode.

Send a PM if you're still interested  :D

I might take you up on that. I have a few things in the pipeline and seeing an outside perspective might motivate me to work harder :D

Sounds like fun! Would be interested in seeing what you've been working on lately.

Sounds swell! When I make a little more progress on my alpha I'll take you up on your offer.

I'd definitely be interested in this! Happy to return the favor as well if you ever needed it.

I completed this video a couple of weeks ago, but due to travel was not able to finalize it until today. Here it is!
