Ritual Countdown, Testing Program, Sin II Tease?

The Ritual Entertainment Website now offers a redirect to this teaser page that seems to be a countdown of some sort, as the page currently sports a ginormous 18. Proceeding through to the main page reveals that the tribe is also launching a playtester program open to those 18 years or older in the Dallas, TX area willing to come in and contribute opinions about their works-in-progress. Finally, on another possibly related note, both http://www.ritual.com/sin2/ and http://www.sin2.com/ now redirect to LegionPharma, a site that looks like a legit drug company, though researching that trademark suggests this is fictitious, so this could be some sort of viral marketing for a still-unannounced Sin sequel. Thanks Frans.

Thank goodness. Michael (assuming you are who you say you are) - how many QA staff do you have working for you? Since you didn't jump down my throat for my post, it's possible you agree with me, and realize that the post wasn't directed AT Ritual, but AT all game companies that don't hire QA. Ultima IX had a QA person, for instance. For that HUGE game, one person, "Binky." Argh, indeed!

I thought the implication you were making was that all games companies neglected QA totally and just had amateur playtesting. Which I felt was a wee bit unfair to the industy in general (had that been what you meant).

In which case I obviously misunderstood what you said (I sometimes have a tendency to assume the worst on the net), so I'm sorry about that. No offence intended.

(I have to admit my only (very limited) experience with QA was strictly at 3rd-party arms length, although the people who were working there seemed a fairly conscientous lot when it came to bug-fixing. It was a sort of control middleware they were developing, though, so it's a different arena.)
