No music or sound at this point. There's a manual in there if you need any help.
Now, I'm not gonna lie to yez, this is kind of a pet project for me and I don't want too many bugs left in it when I release it properly, not like what happened with 7 Days. This is a very elaborately programmed game, so there are going to be bugs, and a lot of them, so if you want to beta test, I need you to beta test it HARD. Make it your beta test BITCH. Try everything you can, and save often; you never know when a bug will bring down the game.
You play for one year, then get an ending depending on what you achieved, how far you advanced and who (if anyone) you managed to get married to. If you want to be a criminal, save even more often, because that's a very hazardous course of action.
When and if you make it through to the end, please fill in the following format for my own reference and post in this topic:
Career path: (Security, medsci or engineering)
Your rank at end of game:
Who you married (if anyone):
Medals received (if any):
Outcome of away missions:
Any notable events:
Suggestions for better gameplay:
I should note that I haven't actually played through the whole thing myself, because I have too much else to do and it's too boring when I know everything that happens in the game. So there could be a bug halfway through that's impossible to get past that I'm not aware of. Find anything like that, I'll try to fix it and upload a new version as soon as poss.
Thanks in advance to everyone who takes part. Once the official version gets released I'll tack on some beta testing credits.
