PLAY THIS MOD.
P.S. I was to write more, but it was turning into a review. I'll post that at another time.
Someone's played Commander Keen 4, am I right?
I'm using Ubuntu (Ocelot), it seems my character is constantly moving to the left. Anyone else encounter this problem?
YAY! This is great, I definitely support the GPL license - go for it ^_^
Neato! Keep up the great work guys :D
Nice work guys. Now I just gotta fix my linux install (I broke it by upgrading my heavily customized ubuntu D:). I guess it's time to consider switching to Arch or Fedora..
If you make another mod, we absolutely need more of these. :D
Just played finished it. It's a great SP mod. I ran into a few minor bugs:
1. You can get into the room with the laser emitter in (I think) the second to last level. The model for the window seems to disappear when doing so, as well as a few other parts of the walls.
2. On the final level, you can take the core off of the exit door override and place it on another button before going into the exit room. If you do this, you become stuck (because the exit is shut). There's also a save point in that room so the only way to fix it is to do the chamber all over again.
Other than that, I enjoyed the gameplay. The first chamber was really tricky to figure out and that level of difficulty didn't drop. The mod adds another layer of confusion atop of what was already there with portal. I would've liked to see more gravity-defying rooms like in the floor of the first chamber - they are mind bending.
Overall: 8/10. It's pretty well polished and is a good challenge to those who think with portals.
Very clean and nice. Seems quite intuitive as well. Keep up the great work!
INtense is a CK fan?! I now love DesuraNET even more. <3
12 inches make a foot ^_^
I responded to the comment below with a long-winded tutorial on how to get Commander Keen and run it through dosbox on linux. After re-reading the comment, I now realise you're asking how I got "Linux User" below my picture in the forums. Derp, one of those days I guess.
After a bit of looking around, I've finally found out how I did it. You have to go to your threadwatch (to the right of your username and the logout button). On that page, below the threads you're watching (if any) there is a grey area that has a "Edit Your Profile" link from there you can edit your forum profile. I changed my title to "Linux User." Other options for configuration include: signature and.. woah, did status logos just appear for me today? Neat! *adds applicable ones*.
Happy forum-ing ^_^
Or better yet, just add more to your previous donation. You don't need to wait for the next bundle.
Thoughtless spending for charity is never a bad thing :D
.. unless your family's starving or something..
Humble bundles. They've only been around for a short while and we're already feeling nostalgic toward the earlier ones. I for one enjoy seeing these bundles released, regardless of their contents.
Edit: Derp, didn't read your comment properly first time - I'd like to get the first bundle too. They should continue selling the previous bundles but at double or triple the average price - at least that way you can buy the pack despite missing the sale.
Lemon + grenade = lemonade.
Also, more obviously - COMBUSTIBLE LEMONS!
Now that's effective viral marketing if ever I've seen it. Gonna give it a try.
This is a true milestone for linux gamers and (hopefully) the gaming industry in general. The beta's a great start. Only major bug I've found is when I try to watch a video in the browser, desura freezes beyond saving. I'm running Natty (Ubuntu) with GNOME3 and gnome-shell instead of unity. Linux 2.6.38-11-generic (x86)
That looks AWESOME - huge thumbs up to the devs. Any chance of a demo release?
Once again, the humble bundle demonstrates not only the size of the market for linux gamers but also their willingness to spend money on indie games. If you look at the numbers given by the back-end of the chart shown for numbers of purchases according to OS,
you can see that linux users (colour 333388) actually made more purchases than Mac users (colour 338833). Needless to say, linux users on average have also paid more than either Windows or Mac users in all of the bundles so far.
I'm very glad to see desura is moving towards client builds for linux - I hope it will be recognised as a viable distribution solution and will help persuade dev teams into making more cross-platform games. With valve and other companies starting to make games for Macs, I wouldn't expect it to be much more difficult/costing to do so for linux as well - OSX being a distant child of UNIX itself. Probably the only thing that veers the industry away from the linux platform is package management and distribution. With Desura there, that shouldn't be much of a problem in the future. Just my 2 cents worth. I hope to see more bundles in the not-too-distant future - they're pretty neat.
What you're doing is great Keith. I can't wait for more blog posts.
I've said it many times before and I'll say it again. Australia needs more conventions.
The humble bundles are the best! Too bad I'm not old enough to have a paypal account ;_;. Twitter.com
Wow, that's great news!
No, but if you own it, it's best to install it before installing PR (See manual).
This is amazing, why have I never heard of it before? 0_0 nice job OP.
EDIT: Also nice to see someone supporting all platforms. Can't wait for the windows version to come out. ^_^
Simple but in a good way. I love games like these, I'll try it out later.
Massive props for producing sweet sweet awesomesauce ;P
Because it's made by the same people, "Blacksand Studios".
I just reformatted and have it installed again. PR is the most team-based game I know and I'd like to extend massive props to the developers because of that. However, nobody is ever commander because being in a squad is so fun! xD
Regards to all,
