Alrighty folks, here's the deal, i am 98% done my console hacking game, very similar to AnthonyS's work.  I already have 2 beta testers lined up, and i want 2 more.  Post you're reasons why you think you would be a good beta tester for my game, and in approximately 48 hours, i will have completed the game and will email two lucky winners a copy.  And then, depending on how long it takes to fix up, it will be publically released.  Sound good?  BEGIN!!

Because I'm cool.



...


oh, dang, no valid reason?

Okay, I have some knowledge in C/C++, Delphi, Pascal (of course), VBASIC, QBASIC, PowerBasic, Darkbasic (just for quota) and the omniskiller-leet-überhacker programming language of Brainfuck.

>[>>[-]<<-[>>+<<-]+>>>[-]<<<[<<]>[>[>>]>+<<<[<<]>->-<

Hmm.... I developed some games myself (not hacking though, never finished those) and got a whopping 15/15 points in my Informatics classes (geekmania, huh, yeah!) although it WAS pretty easy (Databases and all).

Plus, I have a tendency to write really long emails, so that might come in handy for bug reports.

And I can shake a bottle of orange juice! err...

....okay, 'm done now!

Because I've just finished uni for the semester, and I need something other than drinking to keep me occupied?  Because I've got nothing better to do than spend 14 hours a day for three weeks beta testing? :P

Seriously though, I've got some coding experience (along with 80% of the vets here :P), and some experience trying to break programs (more breakage = more stable end product).

I can run it on some different hardware, and different windows platforms.

Having said that, I am extremely lazy :P

I'll do your beta test. Reasons:
1) I have nothing better to do with my time
2)I am a real hacker (dont judge me by the website, I didnt make it though I have now made a new version yet to uploaded)
3) I too can write long emails
4) I have 10 years gaming experience on the PC
5) I completed Uplink the day after I got it
6) I'm cool and decent to people

Is that enough? :)

I'll beta test because uhm... I like beta testing? I assume you wrote it in Q/uickBasic (since you said it was like HaXor), and I've been hacking away at basic since about 6 years old, but have experience in C/C++ as well. Oh, and Brainfuck rules :P. I have a bit of real world hacking experience, but to tell you the truth, realism doesn't always make a great game, since real hacking is boring about 90% of the time, and is often centred around social engineering, which is kinda hard to put in a game.

Bleh, I really should use paragraphs. Ah, its too early
