    Transformice evening ?

    So i have been trying Transformice ( http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015...formice-steam/ ) for a few hours, and it's quite fun. However, random lobby means that it depends a lot on who is in your current room.

    It's free, it's playable through the website or through Steam so...is there anyone out there interested in playing together one evening ?

    Apparently you can create our own room (i've tried it solo), so it would be easy to make a RPS room and play for a few hours. Voice coms would be awesome, I'm sure we would get a lot of laugh on Mumble XD

    PS : if anyone wanna try it on your own, i highly suggest you read the official help page http://www.transformice.com/tutorials/index.php as the official ingame tutorial is utter crap.

    It could be a bit of a laugh, but I think we'd need a good few people for it.

    Oh I'm already enjoying shamaning in practice runs alone (ie i f*** it up royally and have a good laugh about it). As for playing mice, it's of course better with more. But i figure about 10 people in the room would be more than enough to have fun. It's good to have more people for more chaos, but if you have less, it's also good because you get to be Shaman more often.

    There have been a few occasions where I didn't realise that the game had made *me* shaman for the round. Cue a suicidal dash for cheese and instant death, much to the outrage of the rest of the mice who now have no shaman.

    ah yes, i did that too once. Learned my lesson. At least a suicidal shaman is better than one who is standing there. Suicidal shaman, everyone knows they can just suicide and move on. Immobile one, you're trying to figure out if he is AFK, scared out of his wits, or simply taking some time to figure out the (awful) controls.

    Ok I'm pretty busy at work and with personal issues this week, so i may not be the best to organize this. But let's try it (but feel free to step in to organize, i won't mind).

    Which day would be best? Saturday is February 14th and some people care about that date. So sunday evening? Monday evening (instead of silly Mondays?)? Later?

    I would enjoy a Monday - I have work all weekend so the Monday evening would be a nice way to unwind!

    How easy is the game to learn? I'm really not up to taking much on board at the moment, but need distracting. If it's really easy, I'll give it a go.

    Super easy.

    As a mouse you just have jump and run controls. If the shaman does his/her job well, you usually have no special thing to do. Just run along whatever contraption the shaman came up with. (there are a few advanced tricks, but it's only useful for people who absolutely want to finish first).

    As a shaman, when it's your turn (after a few mouse turns), it's a bit tricky, especially at the beginning, but it doesn't matter. If you succeed it's good, if you fail, it will usually result in a funny result for everyone involved,you included. And you can always skip your turn by suiciding early if you're not feeling like trying shamaning

    Also, as i said, my life is quite disturbed currently and yet the game is doing wonders for my mood. It's easy to pick up, it's super cute (you can make your mouse dance or buy mini hats!) and super funny (oops shaman messed up and sent everyone flying!) .

    Yeah, Ksempac took me for a look-see today. You'll be fine.. Well, as long as you don't end up with me as your shaman, you'll be just fine.
