looking for playtesters 

In addition to plotter art I'm a game dev & I'm looking for a few groups to test my upcoming wargame, Skirmish Society.

It's based on Diplomacy but run through Discord. You secretly submit orders to a bot and you scheme with other players over DM. It is as much about statesmanship & swaying public opinion as it is about tactics. Each turn is 24h & the game takes a little over a week.

If you have a Discord server that might enjoy this hit me up & I'll send you some codes!

has anyone used voxatron? any thoughts on it compared to pico-8? from the outside it seems to have a ton more assumptions baked into it about the kind of game youre making idk
