Unfairness of tappable overlays


#1

Don’t ya think it’s unfair that some people get to test it while others don’t? It’s exactly what I need for the Halloween contest. Yet I’m left with choices instead of overlays.


#2

Tappable overlays? I haven’t heard anything about this :thinking:


#3

Many people are already using it in their stories. :expressionless:


#4

Can you please explain what you mean by this? I haven’t heard of it.


#5

Check out @cherrymaxis’ instagram post, the second one


#6

I’m gonna email Episode i’m legit writing Until Dawn, like I need them??? Lmao


#7

First I’ve seen that but yeah lame. Looks interesting


#8

Yes! It’s so unfair that they only choose known authors! :angry:


#9

Ok. I’ll check it out later. Thanks for the heads up.


#10

They recommend that you don’t publish, though, since there could be a lot of changes.
And there are plenty of “unknown” authors in the test.


#11

But how do they find these authors?


#12

I DM’d you but it seems to me that a lot of them were in previous beta tests. I started doing beta tests from the wardrobe one last year and that was an open call.


#13

Since I don’t have IG, can you explain what a tappable overlay is?


#14

You basically have the ability to tap on overlays, good for murder mystery stories. :+1:t2:


#15

Oh cool. So like you could tap something to gain clues in mystery stories?


#16

The video shows 2 overlays of outfits on mannequins. You tap the mannequin you like and it changes the character into that outfit.


#17

I didn’t even know this was a thing. But it sounds very cool and I can’t wait until it gets released.


#18

Oh ok, that also sounds cool


#19

I REALLY NEED THESE TAPPABLE OVERLAYS FOR MY STORY!!! Like REALLY!

It’s not really unfair. Episode has run a test of every new feature they’ve introduced in order to make sure it works. It’s being tested because it’s buggy, not to give certain authors preferential treatment. A lot of these new features also require a pretty advanced knowledge of directing so giving access to new authors doesn’t make a ton of sense. If the beta works, everyone will get it.
