Andromeda Acolytes Discord Introduction
Wade Clarke of Heiress Software said he hopes to see lots of gamers. Especially those who know nothing about text adventures showing up on the Discord. “Like with any genre of game, you first have to learn how to play it,” Wade explained. “I’ve set up varied and graduated competitions to make this fun and easy. In the 1980s, all computer gamers knew how to play text adventures. Once the genre stopped being a big commercial concern, that common knowledge faded. But the games never stopped evolving. If I want a wide base of testers and backers forAndromeda Acolytes, I need to build the skills of potential players. I hope a side effect is that they might get into the wider universe of interactive fiction.”
This is also a really smart way of promoting Andromeda Acolytes. Get gamers directly involved before the actual Kickstarter is live.
Join the comp action and sign up for the beta test. You can do so by hopping onto the Discord server. Then you can pick a team – MC, Remotes or Phadra. Wade’s video above shows the Andromeda Acolytes Discord and how to play in the beta test competition.
Andromeda Acolytes will have you puzzle, converse, and explore. Which is coming to Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Plus you can also Wishlist the game on Steam ahead of the Kickstarter.
