Beta version demonstrated

The game is now at the beta testing stage, and a demonstration was held in Stoke yesterday with the following attendees:
  • Dawn Lyle (iCreate)
  • Allison Ridge (The Honesty Room)
  • Debbie Cooke / Tim Deville / Sue Lawton / Chris Goostry / Tom Hart (Strategic Marketing)
  • Nia Wearn (Faculty of Computing, Engineering & Technology)
  • Maria Scrivens / Judy O'Brien (Press & PR)
Dawn requested that as many as possible download the beta version and report any bugs so that they can be eliminated in the final version. The deadline for comments is 17 August.

Issues to be resolved

  • Some Students' Union flyers still need to be provided
  • How to 'end the game' to be decided - at the moment, you finish all your tasks and then nothing happens
  • Still need content relating to Week 2 sign-in
  • Chris G is working on providing links to 'Award Handbooks'.
  • Where will the game be hosted for download. Given the size of the file (250MB), and the number of potential downloads, it will need to be on a server that can handle the traffic
  • Credits - there will be a quick screen of credits when the user clicks 'EXIT' to quit the game.  A list of names, organisations and logos is required
