Invitations are now closed! We've reached the amount of beta testers we were looking for! Thanks everyone, I'll be sending out TestFlight invites soon!

Hi guys,

My team and I at Strapped to a Meteor are the creators of a recent top 100 iOS title, DEO (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/deo/id452167352?mt=8). If you got it, thank you! If not, check it out :).

PS: Update for DEO is coming soon!

---

We are currently working on a brand new title codenamed Puncho. Puncho is a casual iPhone/iPod touch game currently in its early prototype stage. We're only experimenting with some concept elements.

We are looking for about a dozen beta testers to help us answer 1 question: is it fun?

If you're interested, please leave a comment with your TestFlight email.

Sorry, at this point I can only show you this much! Here's a level mock up and our mighty character :D

It'll support iPad as well but we're only testing it on the iPhone and iPod touch for right now.

Share and share alike -- I'm always hunting testers on TouchArcade, so it only seems fair I give a little back. Other than 'casual' any info on what the game is?

Just play the game (it is not completed so it might have bugs and whatnot) All the dev is asking you to do is say if it is fun or not and why. Usually beta testing means playing the game in its pre-release state and finding any bugs or glitches that you can. All you do is let the dev know what you did to cause the bug and then the dev will fix it. Simple.

Anyways, I loved DEO and I'd like to help out again. Here's my testflight email: jumpman475[at]gmail[dot]com

I was always proud for being able to precisely judge whether a game is fun or not. One of the weirdest things I experienced while developing games at my own is, that when you are the creator, you loose the feeling if your own game is fun. So to help you out, i've sent you my test flight mail :)

As I did enjoy Deo very much... I would find interesting to beta test your upcoming Iphone game Puncho.

I have never been a beta tester... so this would be a first time for me.

Login to your account and accept it from there. As long as you accept the invite, you'll be fine. I'll send out a build early next week.

The invitation code you specified seems to be invalid.
We encourage you to sign up for TestFlight anyway. This way when you receive a real invitation, you are already one step ahead.



That's what it says when I click link in email. Could you resend?
