You're hilarious, really. He pretty much just summed up how any reasonable person would respond to the criticism of their work, and you've just added more evidence to the fact that you're not a reasonable person at all; you're blunt and abusive and without any capacity for empathy whatsoever.

Right now just the former, but there's still a lot of time to add other things if it's beneficial. Right now my gut is telling me to keep it strictly dialogue-focused, and leave point & click elements to another game, since it wouldn't be must of a text-based adventure otherwise.

And yeah, I love the text input mechanic in the classics as well, but it seems like if the genre is to be taken seriously by anyone outside of that niche audience then it needs to adopt some more user-friendly mechanics from other existing game types.

I'd love to do a game that uses the old-style mechanic, but we really wanted this title to be something that just about anyone could pick up and enjoy, so it didn't seem like it was the right mechanic to use.

To be fair, I don't like catergorizing it that much. All I know is that it feels pretty faithful to the classic text-based adventures, but also incorporates some compatible elements from modern games, hence it's being billed as a "new-age tex-based adventure".

Hope that helps.

If there's anything you'd especially like to see in it by the way, be sure to email us or drop a tweet with the #IncursionGame hash-tag. The whole point of the open beta is to incorporate as many good suggestions as possible, so if you feel like it needs some additional mechanics, or the existing ones need tweaked, please don't hesitate to say so. :)

gazornonplat May 26 2012, 9:42pm replied:

It actually borrows elements from each. Initially the player performed actions in the game in a more classic text-based adventure style (i.e. typing things word for word for them to happen), but we changed it after deciding that that element of the classics was more a limitation and quirk of the time than something fundamental to the genre. What we have now is probably closer to a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure game, but it incorporates the classic style and sensibility of text-based adventures, as well as having ridiculously crytpic secrets that can be unlocked through key phrases in the dialogue.

I just meant if this gun shoots conventional bullets (like it appears to) then why not make it possible to carve the bullet tip, since presumably proper hollow-point ammo (and other ammo types) would be hard to come by, whereas all you need to make your own DIY hollow-points is a combat knife.

This is complete nonsense: If it is implemented properly and the game itself is optimised well, the difference in performance will be negligible. All versions should run smoothly, the Windows version very marginally better.

If Valve's experience in porting L4D2 to Linux is anything to go on, the OpenGL version might even run faster under Windows.

I actually was not aware of this, from what I had heard and seen, and especially based on critical reception, I was under the impression that it was excellent.

In any case, perhaps such a fiasco will have taught them to do things differently in future, and so perhaps "Killing Floor 2" will not fall foul to such issues.
