It's a school assignment, and in big, underlined, all capital letters, it says, "THIS IS AN INDIVIDUAL PROJECT. NO OUTSIDE HELP IS PERMITTED!"
I also went up to the professor and asked if playtesters were fine, since it IS a game development class, and testing a game IS part of the game development process, and he said nope
Although once the game is COMPLETED, the assignment can't dictate what I do with it afterwards. I wouldn't exactly turn away any feedback after the game was released, and it IS a sign of a good developer to improve his game based on user feedback...
Also, this support is awesome. I'm feeling more and more assured as time goes by!
It's good to know I can always count on your support, unity!
Man, I WISH I was allowed testers for this thing. Oh well, I'll still be working on it even after it's release. Learn from my mistake, people: Never start a project not caring, then start caring halfway through. Your confidence will always be a bit shaky until release.
Though having someone believe in me certainly prevents my confidence from deteriorating TOO badly! Thanks for that!
