Playtesters Wanted for New Game "Omission"

21 July 2017

MousePaw Games is gearing up to release a brand new open source game, Omission, and is inviting anyone interested to help playtest the game before its September 2017 release.

Omission is based on a deceptively simple premise: find what letter was removed from a famous passage. Players can choose from three game modes: beating the clock, avoiding mistakes, or just leisurely racking up as many points as possible.

Lead Developer Jason C. McDonald described his inspiration. "The digital age has us trained to read past typos. We automatically see 'cofee' as 'coffee' and 'prty' as 'party'. Omission challenges players to train themselves to do the opposite - to spot what's missing."

To ensure the finished product is polished and functional on as many environments as possible, MousePaw Media is putting out the call for game testers. Signing up to test Omission is free and easy, and only takes a few minutes.

Once the pre-release is sent out to testers, they will have until August 21st to play the game and complete the related survey. Feedback will be used to improve the game before its official release.

Details and sign-up instructions can be found on the brand new MousePaw Games website:
