Ex.9. The final countdown

http://blogs.setonhill.edu/JeremyBarrick/ , the link to my story that eventually made my IF game. Beta testing and Interactive Fiction go hand in hand, IF is the actual game and Beta testing is the evaluation of the actual game defined by questions and a non partison play the game. I actually learned a bit from Writing from the Internet and the students involved with the class. I believe that many consumers of the PC population tend to think that flicking on a switch and writing a key word on a screen is the only process involved when dealing with computers,think twice, there is much to know and is a lot more complicated than one thinks. The certain things I have noticed from beta testing was, not many people put much content into their websites, wording needs to be acurate for the user or they will surf to another site, basic is better, pictures need to be at a minimum, and background colors have to be neutral or the colors blend with the text making it hard to read.

Peer reactions I thought to be pertanent. http://blogs.setonhill.edu/TiffanyGilbert/2006/11/my_victims_in_if_8.html. I must include the lovely Kayla, http://blogs.setonhill.edu/KaylaSawyer/2006/11/project_3_propo.html, I am such a charmer.

EL 236 was a blast,I wish I could take it all over again; life only gets harder after here.
