Alright, I've got some news that may or not be important to you guys reading this but I want this to be official. Recently I posted an ad on indiedb asking for testers, and with an overwhelming amount of responses I've decided to stop doing public tests. With the Y.o.l.o. getting closer and closer to completion I want to begin to stop relying solely on public tests. As much as I like public tests I can't have every update for the game be public, especially if there would be any money made from the game. That's not saying Y.o.l.o.'s going to cost money, I just want to keep that option open. If anyone still wants to be a tester, I'm still accepting until the 13th. If you sign up you're not gaurenteed a tester spot. I'm only picking people that I feel would be well qualified. By that I mean that I'm not picking people that just say "I want to be tester" or "Can I be a tester". Only people that actually give me a valid reason to be a tester will be a tester.
I've also receieved some advice from a redditor on how to better the website, so expect changes soon. One of the more noticable changes is that I've moved the blog to the front page and added actual progress bars to the game progression section so they're less boring. The site is going to change a lot soon so keep that in mind.
With the same advice from the previous mentioned redditor I've also decided to change the name of "Y.o.l.o." to "Y.o.l.o. Simulator 2013" so it's easier to find. With the newly changed name I'd also like to anounce that Y.o.l.o. Simulator 2013 is now in beta! Alfter being in Alpha for a little while I've decided to move it to Beta.
That's it for now. If you want to keep up to date on a near daily basis, be sure to follow us on twitter where I'll update more often than the blog. Whenever I post a new blog entree I always spend at least 7 minutes writing the post. However with Twitter it only takes me 30 seconds to tweet something. If you didn't know it yet, the twitter is @BrytonFreewater . It was originally a twitter for my aliase but I've repurposed it to be a company twitter since I lost the password to the original one.
Good day and good luck
