Oops, sorry about that. I should have really tried using the arrow keys instead of straight out denying they existed. They do work a lot better than WASD and now I don't mind using Ctrl as much. Thanks for adding the spacebar in the next update though, it means I have a larger area to spam when I'm tired.
I see what you are getting at with the leaderboards though, I just kind of feel bad for spamming the leaderboards with my name. Does Desura allow for a username based system similiar to how Steam works? For example, the Desura account the player is on will be displayed on the leaderboard.
Once again sorry for my stupidity and I can't wait for what you have in store next.
First off I really enjoy the game, it's a great puzzle game with a great graphical style. I just have a few, albeit small, problems with it:
First off is there any way I can change the controls? I hate using WASD and control; it feels unnatural for me. I would much prefer if I could use the arrow keys and space bar for example.
Another small and annoying thing is the leaderboards. The whole point of the game really is to try and get the best score, which I really like and I could see myself trying for hours on end to try and get. The only problem is that you can have multiple entries on the leaderboard at once, for example 'brady' has loads of entries on the leaderboard and I have 3. This would allow good people at the game to clog up all 100 [?] spaces on the leaderboard for "***** and giggles". Maybe having 1 account tied to the game or overwriting an already used name will help this.
I was also thinking of a level select menu so I could beat my fastest times on a certain level, but in hindsight that will probably ruin the point of the game.
Anyway, I absolutely love the game but the controls are just too frustrating for me to use with a keyboard. I'll hold off on the review just yet incase you do fix some of the problems that I find with the game, but overall great job!
Edit: Sorry for the long post. It's also good to hear that you are adding a hardcore mode, that'll make me play a lot more.
Thanks for the info!
I'll be picking it up on Steam for sure, but I might get it on here first. I love the idea of the game and can't wait to see what the multiplayer is like.
Is there any info on the multiplayer?
This game looks fantastic! I'm definately going to be picking it up, but I just have a question:
Will this be released on Steam at some point? Or is it just on Desura?
Just a quick question, will SHIFT have a good singleplayer?
I ask this because games/mods are aimed towards the multiplayer market now but I much prefer the singleplayer than the multiplayer. I'm hoping for this to be as good as NFSU2 :)
That would be an exhaust :)
Hey, I just came here to say that your idea for the storyline sounds amazing and has sadly not been done before. After hearing the name alone I thought that this would be a great game! Please don't give up on it like a lot of other people do, it sounds like one I'll definately be playing for a long time :)
I would very much appreciate an invite to the beta please. This idea sounds great and since I'm starting to get into the whole game development thing it would be great to see how this works out.
Good work so far and keep it up!
