Hello everyone! I'm Emma and we’re a team of six people working on our project called Neiva, it is playable on PC with both Xbox controllers and mouse and keyboard. We are currently starting a playtesting phase of our game, lasting for about 18 weeks. This means we are looking for people that would be interested in receiving a small build every other week focusing on different features in-game and could give us feedback at each build. Tomorrow, we will release the first one to the sign-ups, which is about control schemes. Next week, we’ll focus on the main feature of the game: the teleportation mechanic! To join our playtesting phase you can sign up here at our website. There you can find more information about Neiva, the team and you can access our development blog which is updated twice a week!

 

Project Neiva is a side-scrolling platforming game featuring a dose of classical 2D gameplay using 3D graphics. The game strives towards fluent gameplay with timed movement, avoiding traps, and outmaneuvering enemies. At the game’s core lies the character Neiva’s ability to teleport through her soul, which she tosses around the game levels. Play through each level and experience how your character evolves along the way, upgrading both the means of teleportation as well as abilities.

Hi emvli,

 

I had a quick look at the devblog.

Love the look of the teleportation feature in the game and the way it slows down to give you time to re-orientate where you want to go.

Also, really love that you're playtesting from such an early stage, so good to see.

 

If you do struggle with finding players to playtest your game we built a platform to help out with Indie friendly prices.

 

You can check it out here. Testify helps you to watch and hear players give honest feedback rather than sift through text feedback.

www.gotestify.com

 

 

We were an Indie studio before and built this tool to help us get feedback from external players.

Our PC support, supports gamepad and keyboard controls, so you can see exactly what the player is doing as well.

 

Good luck with development game is looking great!

Hello!

 

Thank you for taking a look at our game and thank you for the kind words. We really appreciate it!

 

We'll definitely take a look at your site to see how it works. Good luck with everything!

Hello again everyone! We're releasing a new test build again this Friday, make sure to sign up here to receive it!

 

This week, it will be about Neiva's redesigned soul. We'll be trying out two new mood modifiers which will affect her soul in different ways; anger which destroys enemies and happy which lets you teleport in a chain. You can read more about her teleportation feature in our second development blog here! There you can find more information of how this effects Neiva and her souls, as well as reading more about how her energy bar works as a cooldown. You can also find more information about what the whole group has been working on the past week (along with all other weeks). Have a look!
