I'm back on CF (please be gentle) and working on finally finishing a hold I started years ago, but I'll need some more playtesting and honest feedback.

Originally I had three difficulty levels, but I'm consolidating this down to a single difficulty with secrets that are harder versions of the same room. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or if people will find it boring.

I'm also removing most of the crap rooms. I have no idea what I was thinking back when I started building rooms in this crazy game. Some are clever but others were just a nightmare of elements thrown together.

If anyone here is not a playtester but would like to offer advice, please do. If you want to be a playtester, let me know here and I'll add you to the list. Right now I'm playtesting the first ten levels plus secrets, which isn't much because each level is one roomóbut the number of stairs and connectivity things is large and complicated due to the aesthetics of the piece, and having feedback on 'this room is not fun' or 'this room is too hard' will help me to better prune and move rooms around.

Thanks all!

I haven't played DROD in ages. And I probably won't provide much (if any) useful feedback.

But, every so often I come back to see a) if Tahnan ever finished not dr0d 3, and b) if Trickster ever finished Tinytall Tower, since the few scattered posts I remember reading at the time made it sound like it was going to be awesome..

So, assuming I won't be overwhelmed with PONIES ;), can I take a look?

Sounds like a neat hold. I'd love to do some testing. If you still need testers count me in!

Count me in as well. Can't promise to always test very quickly, but certainly willing to do my bit.
Added bonus: I'm <i>not</i> and expert drod player, so I can perhaps help you to get a feeling for "What would an average player think of this?"

I've added Insoluble.

I can't add Dying Flutchman or TripleM, I'm assuming because you guys don't have an active CN subscription?

Hi Trickster,

You're right, don't have a subscription right now. But will order one now. Was thinking of doing so anyways.

Edit: just noticed it will take ages to order/pay from Europe. Don't wait for me, will be available on CN in about a month from now.
