Gypsy's Tale Beta-Tacular! (Newsletter)

Recommended Posts

I got my hands on a beta of Gypsy's Tale! Oh yeah sure, it doesn't mean as much because I work for the company... but still. Neaner neaner!

 

Here's my preview:

 

So you're this totally hot in a peasanty sort of way gypsy girl on a mission to crack the secrets of a forbidden tower. Standing in your way are puzzles, hidden objects, and a variety of humans and fairy folk who strangely enough don't seem to care one iota that you're there to break into a tower full of secrets. I mean come on, shouldn't someone go "Gee Reylin, isn't this a BAD IDEA!?" But then there'd be no game and we wouldn't want that - so what's wrong with a little breaking and entering?

 

The game is gorgeous! I mean it. If you haven't seen the screenshots we've posted you can find a bunch at our Facebook Page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Aveyond-Kingdom/285923924586?v=photos#!/album.php?aid=158491&id=285923924586

So far the game has been a solid mix of a wide variety of puzzles and find the hidden whatever. By wide variety I mean everything from matching like-shapes to putting together a jigsaw puzzle to more logical puzzles. Best of all, perhaps, they all have a skip button in case that type of puzzle has no interest to you. Hurray!

 

The music, on par with our other games, is fantastic. It really sets a great mood as you progress through both dark and dangerous looking areas and friendly frolicky (is that a word?) gnome infested areas.

 

I've already enjoyed my time with the game, but maybe more importantly I had my daughter (nearly age 8 ) sit down with the game for an hour and she was totally into it. Sure she relied on the hints and skipped puzzles a bit more frequently, but she was REALLY into it! This will be a game kids, parents, and everyone inbetween will have fun with.

 

Got a question about the game? Post it!

LOL, beta testers aren't supposed to post tha there's a lot of bugs! Remember: If the general public plays it and there's a lot of bugs now it will be YOUR FAULT TOO!

 

No bug will make it out alive for I am Reylin, bug slayer and curse breaker!

LOL! I was thinking the same thing - everyone's going to read this thread and say "wow, I'm not playing THAT game!" :lol:

 

We are searching and squishing. No bug shall remain standing when this game is released! :D

and no one's can say much due to those sneaky duck tapes.

<.<

(if that doesn't make sense, apologies: killing bout 300 fruit flies in rl makes the brain a bit squishy)

I'm sure the testers will manage to squash the bugs before release. ^.^ By the way, is it still estimated to be out this month as the little "Coming Soon!" spot suggests? I can wait, but I'm excited to play the game.

It's very likely that you'll see an exact date in that "Coming Soon" box sometime before the game is released. At least that's the way it's been with previous games ;)

Its promotion has been done quite less. Maybe thats why its late. I think it would be middle june (june 12-24) Lets wait and see when it will be out. I wonder when we will get exact date. Truly saying some of the ppl don't even know that ydf is a Amaranth production(I also wasn't knowing till i join amaranth after playing aveyond. I played ydf but didn't knew it was a AM production lolz). The name "Aveyond" is more famous than "Amaranth" lol

 

*Waiting for an exact date*

I'm known for my patience, but I think that since we're already 5 days into the month of June, we should have a game by now. :) (I tease; seriously, just waiting patiently.)

LOL Rage! You KNOW we can't give a date until you give us a poem! ;)

 

Granted, it's not Aveyond, but you have caused us to have certain expectations, nonetheless :D
