I would so sign up if I thought that free pizza would mitigate the cost of the airfare. I'm looking forward to this game a bit too much, I think.

WHOA. Now, if THAT doesn't cover the cost of airfare, I don't know WHAT does. ;)

I'm sure that she'll have to sign an NDA before playtesting the game.

Yeah. From the Telltale forums:

I was wondering about something. After the playtesting commences can we bug the playtesters of the game about what the game is like on this board , or do they have to sign some sort of confidentiality agreement?

Nope. Non-disclosure agreements all 'round.

And so begins my adventure to the Playtesting of SBCG4AP. And like all grand RPG journeys, it begins with a map.

Image

A horribly inaccurate map because the roads of California baffle even Google. Which is ironic considering that Google is a LOCAL COMPANY. Sigh. Anyway. Since I've gone to San Rafael several times before I figured I was pretty confident in not getting lost.

Image

With trusty steering wheel ready...

Image

and trusty Homestar as my navigator, my partner and I set out into the while asphalt yonder. The next slides are truly uneventful:

Image

A street called "Fish Ranch Road", it's my favorite exit name EVER. Apparently it leads to a forest or something.

Image

THE TUNNEL OH GOD OH NO WE'RE GOING TO DIE

Image

Whew! We lived. And look at all those suckers going in the opposite direction. Our tunnel is 'special' because it only has three lanes - the middle lane switches, depending on what time of day it is, to go one direction or the other. We got lucky and hit 2-sides both times. Haha, screw you traffic screw--

Image

CRAP! At this time I'm thinking I'm going to be late for the testing.

Image

Stop mocking me building with huge letters of your cityname on it. Nobody likes your style.

Image

Choices, choices... I PICK... Dennis.

Image

Time to go over the bridge! There are things called 'tolls' for these things, and if you don't pay them a troll hops out from underneath it and smashes your car with a club. Cheaters can take the easy route and just get a 'fast track' which feeds the troll electronic money. Or e-money, as we say in the hood.

Image

Lucky for me, Homestar is a shameful bridge-toll cheater. Just don't tell his bridge coach-- the Coach B.

Image

We're on the briiiidge, we're on the briiiidge...

Image

We're still on the bridge, but levelling out to normal land. Look, there's a Prison to the left! Ye ole San Quentin, where murderers and murderesses alike spend their last living years with 4 square meals a day and conjugal visits.

But we're not going there, we're taking the exit to the right and-- wait, what do you mean we missed it?

Image

CRAP.

After I hook a U-Turn (and get some considerable eyeing from the prison-gate-guard), we make it to the buildings at exactly 5 minutes before we're due.

Image

Oooh. Pretty software facilities. They all look like this. Big, white, modernly-shaped, surrounded by greenery and water. I suddenly wish I was a programmer instead of an insurance monkey.

Image

I SEE THE LIGHT-- I SEE THE LIIIIIIGHT.

From here on out, the pictures end. We're greeted by awesome nerds like ourselves, and sign our lives and rights away on a couple of pieces of paper that I didn't actually read (little do they realize I may never HAVE a first born...)

So here's approved ways of telling you about the game:

Main characters: Check
Chapman voices: Check
Inside Jokes: Check
Kicking the Cheat: Double check (over and over and over and over and--)
Outside jokes: Check
Pointless-but-fun minigames: Check-a-roni
BUGS AND GLITCHES EVERYWHERE: check check check CHEEECK

Ultimately, it was a LOT of fun, and really felt like you were in a SBEmail, but it was much more then JUST a sbemail, like a toon and a sbemail rolled together. It was grandiose, grandiose indeed.

Most disturbing glitch: Coach Z was standing behind a floating-Homestar-orange-wooden-spoon... it was hip-level, sticking out and... well, all people around me had to stop and stare.

"Yeah... You guys might wanna raise the rating on this game if you're going to keep that spoon there."
"... that's just not right."

Not right. Just... not right.

They took all our feedback, discussed the glitches and the fixes and all that good stuff. T'was 4 hours of my life very well spent.

So yes, when this thing hits the stands I'll be the first to buy, and I hope you are too. Awww... group hug.

p.s. They lied, there were FIVE kinds of pizza. Oh yes.

1st: Since when was your name blue?
2nd: That was funny.
3rd: where I come from those "fast tracks" are called E-Z passes.
