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.

We'll stop having such buggy games when companies that don't want to spend money (or don't have money to spend) stop bringing in pimply teenagers for free to do "playtesting" instead of hiring a staff of quality assurance professionals to do "actual testing." You know, people who actually know how to do the job.

Um... you do realise playtesting is an entirely seperate issue to actual testing-for-bugs anyways?

It's not due to not hiring people that we get buggy games, it's due to time as much as money.

i loved that game, despite all it's initial bugs.

Yes, that would be because of this:

But that won't happen. Not as long as "faster, cheaper, crappier" is the ruling paradigm.
