iPuppet Needs Beta-Testers
9:14 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

Following our previous announcement that iPuppet has reached the beta stage, we have news that beta-testers are needed by the devlopers Freeverse.

"I could really use some help here," said the recently-engaged Freeverse Beta Test Coordinator, Dan "Remy" Dickinson. "since one man is not enough to beta test a piece of software of this magnitude. Besides, Ian and Colin are really starting to scare me. They said if I don't get enough beta testers, they're going to throw me out the window."

Ian Lynch Smith added a cutting motion across his throat with his thumb,
while Colin Lynch Smith merely punched his fist into his open hand.

"Who knew working for such a seemingly sweet company could be such a hazard to one's health?" added Dickinson.

The ideal beta tester should have the following:

-a Macintosh (OS 9 or OS X - preferably both) or Windows computer.

-a solid Internet connection.

-a good understanding of the rules of Bridge, Hearts, Euchre, Setback, and Spades, or at least be willing to learn.

-good communication skills and a basic understanding of computing for
writing bug reports.

-time to devote to the testing process.

Previous beta testing experience is a plus but not required. Top testers
may receive complimentary copies of the game upon shipping. Interested
testers should email Dan Dickinson at remy@freeverse.com with their system specs, any notable previous experience, and a short paragraph on why they feel they make a good beta test candidate.

If you fit the bill and fancy helping out a Mac developer, why not drop them a line.
