[ANNOUNCEMENT] Playtesting and YOU! (April 24th, 2020)

Postby Viking Sarah » Thu Apr 23, 2020 3:47 pm

Hey YoFans!

We’ve got a long road ahead of us, but the next generation of YoWorld is in the works, and we need YOUR help to make it awesome!

Going forward, groups of players who have been selected at random will be invited to participate in a Playtest to try out some of the key features we’ve been working on. These features are still a little rough around the edges, and may even be a tad glitchy, but now is the time to hear your input so we can make the next Playtest even better!

What is a Playtest?
    A Playtest will put you into a test environment that looks and feels similar to YoWorld, but is an early rendition of the next generation of YoWorld that our team has been working on.

    This environment is still very much “under construction” and does not necessarily represent what the end result will be - so please mind our hard hats and hammers as you test. The Playtest environment will open right in your browser -- you will not need to download any new program.

What will I need to do in the Playtest?
    Play, of course! Each Playtest will be aimed towards a new feature or function that we're working on, and basic instructions will be provided during each test. These can range anywhere from decorating tests, to costume tests, to overall gameplay tests.

How can I be selected to participate in a Playtest?
    Groups of players who will be participating in Playtests have been chosen at random, and will be notified via a pop-up when they load YoWorld. These groups will change for different tests, so there is a possibility that YOU will be selected to participate!

Why do I have to agree to a Non-Disclosure Agreement? (NDA)
    *ahem - puts on lawyer voice* If you're selected for a Playtest, the NDA is our way of ensuring the new information you will be viewing is secure from an intellectual property standpoint. By agreeing to the NDA, you agree to not share or distribute any of the new information or gameplay that you will have access to during the Playtest.

I found bugs and glitches in the Playtest, what now?
    When you are finished with the Playtest, you will be given the opportunity to have your voice heard, including listing out any bugs or glitches you may have encountered.

There are features in the Playtest that I love and/or hate - how can I share my feedback?
    Much like above if you encounter a bug or glitch, we absolutely want to hear from you regarding your overall opinions! You will be given the opportunity to do this during your Playtest.

Can I opt out of being a Playtester?
    While there is no way to officially opt out of being a Playtester, you do not have to proceed with the test should you receive a pop-up in game. Simply close out of it to continue with your regular YoWorld adventures.

    Of course, participating in this new and exciting path for YoWorld is entirely voluntary, we hope you are as excited about this as we are, and are eager to check it out! With your help and feedback, we can all shape the future of YoWorld!

    Please note that if you choose not to participate in a Playtest, you may still receive a pop-up in the future for another Playtest if you are selected at random again.

We are very excited to start sharing some of the progress we've made on the next generation of YoWorld, and we are looking forward to hearing what you all have to say about it!

That was one of my early IT jobs--software testing. I'd love it and promise not to tell a soul...

Will this include people using the desktop app as well as people logging in from other browsers?

Having testers from a selection of popular browsers would probably be useful.

I have a lot of questions.
1. Testing is only from a browser: what about Gameroom?
2.What happens if our items suddenly disappear? Are you going to replace them? What if it is older items that disappear, how can you replace them if you can't replace players things that disappear now?
3.Other than signing a NDS, what other info will you need?
4.How will we know if something is glitching or if that is the way it is supposed to act?

I hope one of the new features is that you found a way to add the hotdog collection to our daily coin runs.

Thanks

I personally think the play tester thing is cool, especially since you can give your opinion about it and etc. I have a question though.. are they going to make like 2 different maps/games like 1 map is the one right now the 2nd one would be the new one or is it going to replace it? :D
