Alpha Test

I performed Anastronaut's alpha test this afternoon. Although I was very careful with my code and all, I did expect a lot of glitches and misspells. A couple of hours later I found the following:


11 speech related mistakes.
10 non-clickable hot spots.
1 event related issue.
2 control related issues.


The speech mistakes varied from misspelling a word to differences between the text line and its speech. The non-clickable hot spots were generally not of any importance to complete the game, however, they would add more fun to the game play. the event related issue was tricky. There are two events A and B. B depends on how many times A has occurred. But there was a scripting mistake when the player tries to trigger B before A reaches its count, A zeros back. Finally, the two control issues were only having to disable the player from using any cursor at specific events...

Sign up your voice talent

anastronaut guarantees your voice would reach the darkest farthest depths of the universe. Submit by commenting this post with a link to your talent. Auditioning begins now. I will only check out YouTube or direct links to your sound samples. Sorry for the inconvenience.


There are male and female characters all in their 20s. I would study all kinds of voices, accents, hoarse, lisps... you name it. If you are a male and able to provide a female voice then you're welcome to submit and vice versa. You don't have to use any specific lines but in case you're out of ideas here you go:
[CAST] Male (emotionless): "Well hello there... Say goodbye to your new friend."
[CAST] Female (sarcastic, Russian): "Funny... I'm still not interested."
[CAST] Male (main character): "This looks like a laboratory mainframe."
[CAST] Narrator: "Leave it alone! It has to be enabled first."
[CAST] Narrator: "You try hard to pull yourself together after the shock from the explosion. However, you fail!"
[CAST] Female (explaining a theory while scared, not whispering): "..something weird has happened and gave him the ability to travel through time!"
[CAST] Female (mumbling and scared): "He snapped.. Yes. That IS exactly what happened to him."
[CAST] Male (Alien technician): "You need to disconnect the cables leading to the main hydraulic controls. Then, discharge the extra pressure."
[CAST] Female (gossiping): "Oh I really think they'd make a great couple! I can't wait to see the look on Helen's face when she hears about it!"
[CAST] Male (main character): "Those mountains are huge compared to the ones I saw earlier."
[CAST] Male (main character): "Oops. Ouch. Hey! Hmmm. Yay. Aha! I don't think so. Nah. Nope. No. Okay. Nothing. It does nothing."


Good luck.

Labarrian Mighty Hunter


This is a typical male Labarrian mighty hunter, they are well known for their thick boned strong built and perhaps their unique three fingers on each one of their six limbs. Most of their weaponry are made from carved stones and animal bones. The males are known for their reptile fashioned white spots on their skin. The spots indicate strength and good genes. They are interested in skins of all types as they use them for almost everything in their life.

I'm seeing an 8 bit cat in a cherry pop tart leaving a rainbow tail... yep.. my oxygen is running thin and out.

'Little did he know...'
I sat wondering about my future, my near future... should I wait until I run out of oxygen? Or should I just take off my head bubble and end the whole thing? I feel a huge gap inside my guts that nothing can fill right now.

"..I don't care if you took me far..
spend the night in a lousy bar..."

My sensor did not lose its mind. After all, it is a 6 foot wide asteroid heading towards me at 0.00000012 mph!!


I shall add it to the inventory and make a good use out of it. I do not want to get attached to it emotionally as I still think this is some sort of a lame dream and I'm going to wake up anytime -hopefully- soon.

Had a little quarrel with the partner, a size of a squirrel for precision. Sick of my male behavior when dealing with the toilet seat. I found myself ejected podlessly into deep space. Now I'm hoping someone would receive the distress signal from my beacon. My oxygen would last for a few weeks since it is packed using atom-space reduction technology. I also got water running in a bio-recycle system of which I had nightmares about being in a situation where I would drink it. I wait. With my imaginary book "Not allowed to be Happy" and my duder√∂ lamp.
