You, sir, are a baboon. As paying customers we have every right to complain when a developer takes our money and fails to deliver the goods.
Okay, look. I had very high hopes for this game and I bought it in 2012, hoping for a good game. The problem is, this is never getting finished, that much is clear. I know you guys are hobby developers and I know real life often happens, but this is completely unacceptable. You cannot realistically expect us to go years without any significant progress being made on the project. This game has barely changed since 2012!
When you release a game on Alpha Funding and you take customers' money, you have a responsibility to make an effort to complete the game. Every time in the past when we complained because it looked like the game was making absolutely no progress you would come up with excuses and justifications, making promises that things would change. It's now two years since I bought this and nothing has changed. The project is very clearly dead in the water. Why don't you just come clean and admit you're never going to finish this, because that much is clear as day. You took our money and all we've got to show for it is a half-assed alpha that barely works.
Thank you for destroying my trust when it comes to Alpha Funding games.
I agree. With games like The Dead Linger, DayZ, etc, I'd like to know what this game offers to justify it costing $30.
Holy crap, ease up on the commas in the description a bit.
Other than that, it seems interesting. I'll hold off a few months and see how things develop, though. Too many of the games here on Desura's alpha funding seems to have turned to vapourware.
How is the multiplayer scene for this? Is it easy to find people to play with?
I've had this game since March last year and in all that time there has still not been any significant changes to the game. Only small things here and there.
I realise you guys work on this game in your spare time, but really? How long is this project going to take? 27 years, maybe?
So complaining because we've been waiting a year and a half for an update to a game we've paid for is now us being 'entitled?'
That's rich. I'll just quote Forbes on the matter.
"The verdict is in, folks, and it’s the same as it was last year: calling upset gamers ‘entitled’ is still a lazy substitute for an argument."
It's said in a slightly different context, but it fits this context as well.
It's like a 3D version of Dwarf Fortress or Dungeon Keeper, just severely dumbed down.
Does anyone think we can request a refund? I think it's pretty clear what's happening here. This game has more or less been abandoned. If it ever gets finished, it will be over a period of 20 years.
Haha, no. Apparently nowadays if you give someone money you should be grateful for getting something in return.
No offence, linkhero, but normally I would agree with what you're saying, just not in this case. This game has been in alpha funding for more than a year and it is still not even in a playable, stable condition. These guys really should have had more to show for their time by now.
Yes, their game has been in pre-alpha since middle 2011. At this rate, we'll reach v1.0 in ten years. :)
A company which has been delaying an update for a year and a half is delaying it even further. Big surprise.
There's a major difference between taking your time to ensure quality, and taking forever. At this rate, we'll have v1.0 in ten years.
They've been working on a single update for a year and a half now. How long do you think it's going to take them to finish the entire game?
I know the next update is apparently really big and adds a lot to the the game, but I mean, come on. We're going on two years and the game is still *technically* pre-alpha.
It's been in pre-alpha since 2011.
More than a year since the last full update now. Also, almost a year since their laptops got stolen. How long is this update still going to take?
I'm just so tired of waiting by now. Playing the test builds isn't fun because they've got major issues all over the place. :(
Every time just as we think an official update is imminent, some new issue pops up all over again.
Actually, no, you can't.
This game is absolutely screaming for an Android port. Any plans on bringing it to the mobile arena when it's finished? I will even buy it a second time just to have it on my Android tablet.
Oh, also, thanks for introducing me to the wonderful world of X-com. I never played the original game, but I played this remake and it is absolutely one of the best games I've ever played. Really glad I played this before X-com: Enemy Unknown or else I would never have known just how much better the original X-com is. Don't think I'm even going to bother buying the new X-com, I'll just play Xenonauts.
Where does one get the free version that everyone is mentioning? I want to test whether it runs on my netbook before I buy, but I can't find it anywhere.
It can run Minecraft on lowest settings. :P
Hmm, anyone know if this will be able to run on a netbook with only an Intel GMA 4500M? This looks awesome, but my main gaming PC is dead. :(
Uhm, this game's last update was 9 months ago. Isn't it safe to assume it's been abandoned?
Haters gon' hate and all that.'
BTW, haters, ever heard of Infiniminer? You know, that game that Notch totally didn't rip off to make Minecraft?
Hey, Ricochet64? Ever heard of InfiniMiner? You know, that game that Notch stole the idea for Minecraft from?
Desura might still be busy approving the update. Sometimes it takes a while. :(
That's how I got mine on Desura. I originally bought it from Gamersgate, but then bought it again on the Indie bundle to get a Desura key.
Wow, another uninformed, ignorant fool...
Hey, I'm not the one representing my modding group by being rude to my fans on the official mod page. I'm well within my rights to take the 'moral high ground', otherwise known as common courtesy amongst us lesser mortals.
So you insult his language? He probably posted here, not knowing any other language, in the hopes that someone who DOES know his language can answer his question.
And then you were a complete douchebag to him. Wow, nice way to greet your mod's supporters. Insulting and being rude to them on your group's page. NMRIH, I'd suggest you get someone else to represent you on this page, because the way its going now, SotaPoika is creating a bad impression of your entire group.
If you don't know how to handle yourself in public, stay out of public. PR tip number one. That goes for people who are part of groups creating free mods as well.
