Does the game need to be played?

I'd happily read though blocks of text, make the edits, then send them back. I'd assume it would be a much faster turnaround

I was actually thinking the same thing. Can't the editor just work off the script?

Is payment neccessary? What about immortality in the form of the credits? Some of us do this out of passion, man! It is the omnipresent burning fire of emotion, the spring of man's desire!

No, it's not necessary, but Gamevil is being gracious enough to offer it to whoever works for them as a 'thank you'.

You don't have to have it if you don't want to.

Cheat codes will be installed into the build for you to play quicker but going off the script is acceptable as well.

However, please note that not all the script is in order.
(It's much easier to follow it with the game, trust me)
