put simply, a beta tester is someone who plays the game and notes down anything that looks like it may be a bug, however small, then feeds this back to the game designer so that bugs can be fixed. Then in the next version, you test the bits that you found bugs in again, to test that they have been changed and do work without any unexpected consequences.

you don't really need any technical knowledge, just lots and lots and lots of time, allied to a very good eye for spotting things that look wrong or out of place. I'd also like feedback on how the game plays, what sections don't work too well, or are confusing, and any other suggestions that may improve the game.

with TLoD, you really will need a lot of time, as it took me 2 hours to get through the second section, and i knew what to do!

you're welcome to beta test it if you feel you will have enough time to do so, but i would like as much feedback on it as possible...
