Hey folksies.  Cool

Aquaria for iPad has hit Alpha two, thanks to the work of the very talented Andrew Church. We're going to be looking for play testers very soon.

Requirements
an iPad
the ability to take notes while playing

It doesn't matter if you've played Aquaria before or not. Smiley If we could get both new players and long-time veterans, that'd be awesome.

Post here, or send me a PM if you think you'd be interested. Let me know why you think you'd make for a good tester. Cheesy

Send me an iPad and I do as much testing as you want! Cheesy
Unfortunately I only know 2 friends of mine with one and they are too busy to test games... :-/
Good luck anyways, sounds awesome!

Oh, yeah.  A game that I love.  I think I should post here.

I'm interested, and able, to playtest.  I love tearing things apart and absorbing the itty bitty details that go into big works of art.  I also love the big picture, and am used to connecting ideas across large areas to see how they fit (or fail to fit).  I've playtested multiple programs in different stages of completion, and in fact am in the process of doing so right now for another iPad game.

Also, I love Aquaria.  I've bought it twice.  Once for normal, then once in the Humble Indie Bundle.  I love the thing.  (Haven't finished it yet, though!)  Gimme more more more.

Hey Alec,

I would be interested in helping you with the iPad testing. I have only played the Aquaria Demo for the PC yet.
As indies who have worked on iphone games, we have had our fair share of troubles with the iOS platform and hope that we could help you iron out some bugs as well.
Let me know.

Thanks Smiley

I think this is the first/last time I'll ever want an iPad...

Andrew is making an iPad version now? He's way ahead on everything! (I was thinking about porting it to Xbox1, but lack any DirectX programming experience...)

I'd be interested in testing. I played through Aquaria on the Mac once, but that was some time ago... looking forward to trying on iPad (whether by testing or as a paying customer... or both). My schedule for testing is sort of erratic (gone back to college part-time, handling 10-month-old son the rest), but I know a thing or two about iOS development, Lua scripting, and UI design if that helps.

I'll help out if you still need it. I work a lot but i'll at least be able to give feedback every so often. I played through the PC version of the game and loved it, looking forward to it on ipad.

Aquaria is coming to the iPad, is that confirmed?

I would love to see this an would by the game again, because I think it would be wonderful to play with touch controls.

Sorry to toss in another post when I've already said "I'm interested," but I wanted to say this somewhere:
I love the thing.  (Haven't finished it yet, though!)  Gimme more more more.

Now I've "finished the thing."  That was fantastic, and if Aquaria is coming to the iPad, then I'd be thrilled to play more more more!

Man, this is one of the only things I'd love to have an iPad for.
Aquaria is one game I know would be fantastic with touchscreen controls. I used to think maybe on the DS, but the screen's too small to do the graphics justice. Maybe the Next Generation Portable that Sony's talking about will be good for it, though.
