I code stuff!
Wait for it...
Huge mouse cursor.
Edit: Henley also has my kind of hair.
Played this yesterday, first impressions: Very smooth, with interesting gameplay and nice level design.
Only bad thing I noticed was the inventory key was on Enter, a terribly unconvenient key guys, TAB or I would make more sense, the shop was a bit vague as well, but this seems like it'll be a great game :)
Who knows what mods will do to it though?
Very nice indeed!
That dodge is sweet, will wolves be able to dodge as well?
Pointless? Aren't games all pointless? If everything humanity does boils down to the betterment of humankind(in the end: happyness) then so do games, so I suppose no games are pointless, unless they do not fullfill a goal that leads to it.
So basically, you imply the game doesn't make him happy?
Well if it's not his thing, it doesn't make him happy and I don't see anything wrong with that.
Or with pointless you mean to say you think, that he implies the game won't make anyone happy? That games without combat won't make anyone happy? I very much doubt he means to say that, perhaps he does and you're free to think what you want.
I will think what I think though and not put words into his mouth I've never seen him say(read: type), additionaly, he also mentioned "no goals", I'd like to think he's implying a game without combat and without goals, should just be a movie or something, which I might agree to, depending on what falls under goals, teaching something can be a goal in an educational game, even if that's not an immediatly satisfying goal to some and may be labelled as not a goal...
What I'm just trying to say with that is, he might not be aware there's any sorts of goals yet, it's not even out yet, so perhaps he might not play it because there's no combat, but still will accept it as a game if it does have goals like Iz said and well, not everyone enjoys non-violence games and not everyone enjoys violent games, perhaps he's just the former, not a reason to try and bury the comment, if he really is trying to be insulting, sure go ahead, but I think you and others hitting the minus button are jumping the gun and making too many assumptions.
Which is a human thing to do anyway, but really, he's several steps above the kind of jerks that would say: "What no combat? This game suuuuuuuckkkssss", he's explained his opinion in a polite way, yet people are getting angry with him, so I felt the need to defend him with an overload of Duck logic.
Just my 9001 cents.
NullSoldier, I disagree, while he should be "ignored" in the sense of not changing the mod into a combat game now suddenly, I don't think him or anyone is a fool for saying that.
He's just stating his honest opinion and isn't even calling it bad or saying Iz should do otherwise, he's just saying it's not his thing, if you don't like simulation games for example, are you then a complete fool for saying you're not really into simulation games?
Just my 2 cents.
"Still waiting for Duke Nukem Forever? Forget it start modding, read our introductory guide", this is soooo old! So old even that Duke Nukem Forever is now out already :P
This hallway looks familiar ;)
Do you guys forget that all of those Source licensed game seem to always end up on Steam, Steam is Valve's platform, they get like what? 25% of the profits? Ka-ching! It explains why the license price is likely to be negotiable and not insanely high, plus Valve seems to be a kind company...
Regardless, thanks to Steam sales, Valve makes a profit on top of the license and they probably weigh that in the license price.
Right and you should get it for free because you are such a nice guy, threatening to pirate their sweat and blood?
I think you know better.
You're free to think that, but as a fellow developer, I full well understand their desire to commercial, so I assure you that my problem was only with the way they hoped to achieve that, however they seem to have no wrong intentions, only good ones.
Still, there are other ways, harder ways perhaps but I can fully understand why they do it this way, especially after looking at the current gathered donations, since there are plenty of fans that fully support them.
I am in no way part of the "mods go commercial rage" group, if they can gather the required cash to purchase a license, then in my opinion they have every right to sell what they have spent hard work into to make.
I would like to partially apologize for what I said before, I still can't look favorably upon donations, but watching the video mflux posted, I can tell he at least loves the work he's doing and has every intention to keep the fans pleased, so I believe I owe them at least some more respect, they are just trying to do things right, while I do not approve of their ways, they mean well. So I'm sorry for that.
I still have to agree with Darthlex's point on transferring the PHAN thing to kickstarter, I don't see why it's not possible and it seems like a backstab move to me, perhaps it's really not possible but I really don't see why, so you can understand why I feel distrusting about that.
My reply was too big so I sent it to you as a PM instead.
Nice job putting words in my mouth that I never said.
To A. There are other "simple" (as in one gamemode) multiplayer games out there already, me buying or not has nothing to do with that.
To B. Never said a word about price.
To C. Never said a word to do with that either.
My problem is like I said already with their methods, not with them wanting to sell it, I can understand if they want to sell it, I disagree with the way they go about it.
As for my "immature" behaviour, I have all rights to state my opinion, I'm not trying to hinder or hurt them in anyway, all I did was state an opinion and that they lost me as a follower, there is absolutely nothing immature about that.
I'm going to be blunt here, you guys disgust me and I won't be tracking anymore.
Don't let me stop you from doing what you want, I just want you to know my opinion, if there's no one else that feels this way, why you should you care?
Really you're free to do what you want, but I don't approve of your methods and am not interested in a commercial release, so I'll be untracking, maybe that changes by the time you get that far, who knows, currently I don't care about this anymore, so you've lost me.
Now go call your friends and "phans" and hit that - karma button if that makes you feel any better.
Tried that Dr.Freakman, this is what happened...
I'm getting real sad now, everyone seems to be able to play it just fine, all my steam and source games work. But I'm the only one that has this issue! It doesn't make any sense.
*Rips hair out*
Bought it and it doesn't run for me, the first time I showed the Streum On logo but with a white background, then the game froze before being able to get past that.
Since then every launch doesn't even get as far as that, the game just breaks my windows view(a lot of stuff goes black on the screen until moused over) and my desktop background becomes black and dissapears and stays that way until rebooting the PC. The .exe is then running but the game doesn't start in any further way, windows remains fully active in that broken state.
A friend of mine says he can run it without problems though, which makes me fear I'm the only one... Is there anyone else that has this? Also why isn't there a forum set up, the steam forum link just leads to the website, no forums there. I hope a dev reads this page D:
Looking good, looking very good, really got me giddy for the game.
Also would like to say, bonus points for showing the HUD, real ingame footage ftw!
"wavering quality of each individual actors recording set up"
Yeah that's what I meant with rough, makes their voices come out "wrong" sometimes, but it's good :D
Nice Izi! :D
The voice acting is a little rough though, but it's to be expected, but good overall.
Good luck releasing the first part :)
You don't need a full time internet connection for that.
Steam has an offline mode though.
Wait Terraria has levels? I guess they added it after I stopped playing.
I've been using UDK for the past months, so that's not reinventing the wheel :)
I do however make some of the stuff I want to make from scratch, even if there are other solutions available, that's generally because knowing the code will be to my advantage when I need it to do things the author didn't intend it to do.
I'd say it's been working quite well, except I never released anything on UDK, but I point the finger to my inability to stick with a project and complete it, so perhaps it is working well.
"I didn't think they'd authorize this download until"
Been there :)
Seriously WHAT THE HELL ModDB, it keeps posting my reply to the post 3 posts down to what I try to reply to>.<
@rellik_pt: Aye, I released an update to my mod a year ago during steams summer sale... not a good idea D:
Reply fail D:
True I guess, but they need to eat and if this is their Source of income... well the Publisher may provide some funding until release, but they can't delay the game forever, still time is indeed less of an issue I think.
That's more of an excuse for lack of content than bugs, but still a valid excuse, since they have limited time, people and testers.
Also, these guys didn't make the Mount and Blade series, they made the Sword of the Stars series apparently. You must be reffering to Paradox, which is a publisher, not a developer.
Which does still stand for something(as I see it, Paradox publishes good games, even if they can be a bit broken, you'll have a good time with them, good example is Magicka, rather broken on release and still is occasionaly, but it's a great game)
