Announcing: "Monkeys in Space: Escape to Banana Base Alpha" - Looking for playtesters

Hi Everyone:

I'm extremely pleased announce my latest game: Monkeys in Space: Escape to Banana Base Alpha!

Countless monkeys float around helplessly in outer space every day! They need your help! Jump into the game to rescue these helpless monkeys.


Youtube link | Pop Up

The video is availabe in HD on YouTube, if you click through to the site.

Monkeys in Space: Escape to Banana Base Alpha will be available for iPhone and iPod touch in Fall, 2009.

Secondly, I'm in need of playtesters. The game is not yet at a beta stage, but I'm looking for some people to play the game and provide feedback on the game. This is much more exciting than beta testing! You're not just looking for crashes, you'll have a chance to tell me what you like and what you don't like about the game!

If you're interested in helping out, please PM me your email address. I'll be looking to send the first test build early-mid next week.

See you in the skies!
Owen

I haven't talked publicly about how the game is going to be played yet. However, I think you could classify it in the "line drawing" genre of games. However, the actual line drawing is a little different than in other drawing games. That's about all I'm willing to say right now.

I hope no monkey no monkey is going to be hurt in your game if not you might get PETA after you ahahaha .

But seriously the teaser is really great, it give us just enough to open our appetite and make us want to know more ;-). Its quite intriguing to see how it will turn out. I had some ideas since Ive been watching all your video blog and the early prototype build. And now it make senses what you were saying last time that you change the theme of the game as you have something more enjoyable and now I can see what it is... SPACE MONKEYS .

Thanks for the response to the play tester request so far, everyone! I love seeing the player community so excited to help make our games even better!

I still have room for a few more testers if anyone's interested. I'll be sending out the first build sometime next week, so PM me before Monday if you're interested.

Cheers,
Owen
