Games are great!! This is like a gaming renaissance going on right now. So many games, so little time.
I gotta agree with you. I bought mostly because of the raving reviews and had to find my way to the game forums just to find out how to start the game in single player. You must start one instance of the game as the server and another instance of the game to join "localhost."
I don't seem to have any sounds in the game. No gun sounds, no digging sounds. Will have to investigate. I won't pass judgment yet in case it is my settings.
It does look like a really good game and I will post a review hopefully in the next couple of weeks. Probably a short review but a fair score considering it is still alpha. I hope it turns out as good as Terraria because that game sucked up some serious gaming hours.
If this turns out that good - I will buy multiple copies for family and friends. I love running a little Terraria or Minecraft server and this looks like a lot of fun.
Except it looks like you should probably buy direct from devs - I think I have to wait until the Indiegogo $75,000 is raised before I get access to the unlimited voxel demo.
Dang it - Indiegogo got me.
Bought on indiegogo before I checked here :/
Just buy this thing people. Minecraft/Halo/Borderlands/many other games in one awesome package. This is what gaming is about right here!!
The spell has it's own supply of oxygen. The bigger question is how did you get spells. They aren't real :/
That looks great. Will you be able to hit one key and toggle them all on/off? It would be really cool to set up your windows how you like and then toggle them with one key.
That was a little windows GUI joke. I gotta work on my timing. Comedy is all about the timing.
You have a really great game here and that's no joke!
Love your game. I guess it runs on Windows best :/
And it works now!! Great game. Buy it here on Desura though because it looks like it gets updates sooner.
They got the update!!
It's a broken download :(
If we bought a gamersgate key can we get a Desura key :/
Their updates are soooo slow. Still at 0.50b
This map made me buy a second copy for LAN play. Thanks for the great game!
I bought this from devs website ages ago. Great game that you should definitely buy. One thing that bothered me was the washed out color look in the maps. It was kinda hard to see what was going on, although I think I am in the minority on that opinion :/
This map fixes that. The graphics are bright and clean and don't look washed out. This is a true joy to play with this winter map.
If you don't own this game - BUY IT NOW!!!
Great, great game. Love these little racers and this one is packed with stuff to do and most importantly the controls and "feel" is perfect. This is a steal at this price. Thanks!
Been waiting years for a great snake game. This is the one!
Looks like Win XP is working !!
Come and get it.
I sent it via PM. I didn't see a way to add an attachment but the file was small and copy and paste.
Thanks for looking into this :)
I just run Microsoft Security Essentials. I have 65 games on Desura and around 250 on Steam and more on different services (origin, amazon, gamersgate, impulsedriven, greenmangaming, gog.com). I don't think I've ever seen a game do this and there is zero hesitation - it makes the folders in my last post and then it closes instantly. There are no files quarantined in security essentials history. I turned off real-time protection for a couple of minutes and tried it with same result.
Some of the games I have are updated through launchers/downloaders like minecraft (regular, magiclauncher, and technic-launcher), StarMade, Valley Without Wind, Gratuitous Tank Battles, Overgrowth.
I did add an exception for zombiegrinder.exe and desura.exe and desura_service.exe to Security Essentials but same result.
This computer only has 2 users - a guest one (which I should probably just delete because I don't use it) and the one I log into all the time which is admin. I don't think I have any unusual settings for the admin account - I don't mess with any settings I don't have to.
If this helps any - Running ZombieGrinder.exe creates -
C:\Documents and Settings\MyUserName\Application Data\Zombie Grinder\Install\
There are no files in the "Zombie Grinder" folder or the "install" folder. Deleting the "Zombie Grinder" and "install" folders and running the .exe just repeats the process.
I'm in no hurry - I'm working. Just thought it may be the same problem someone else here mentioned and probably a Win XP issue.
Great game - maybe the best top down game I've played.
I did it both on Desura AND through Twindrills.com to try to get it to work either way. When I originally played the game months ago it was through Desura and it worked great.
I bought it anyway :/
The donator version is the same way but at worst there is another computer in the house I can use with Win 7 on it.
On the Twindrills.com site the windows file.
I click on it in Desura and it says "Please select the version of Zombie Grinder you want to play:" and then I click "play." A small Desura colored window flashes for an instant that says "preparing:" at the top but nothing in the window and it shuts down immediately. The same thing happens when clicking to play "SDK."
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling from Desura.
I tried the download from Twindrills.com and unzipped it into a folder on my desktop called "zombiegrinder_stub_windows" with zombiegrinder.exe inside. Double clicking it nothing - not even a window.
I haven't played this for ages. Nice to see you have a paid version now. I fired it up to see what changed before I buy, but I am also having the problem with the game not launching.
Win XP 32 bit
AMD X2 4800+
Nvidia MSI 9600GT 512 MB
4 GB DDR2 RAM
I played it months ago just fine and see on your site under support that there are some "dependency" files that are supposed to be in the install folder. The only file in my Zombie Grinder folder is ZombieGrinder.exe. I have tried the download from your site also and still only downloads a zip with ZombieGrinder.exe in the folder.
Thank you for the free content and the great game :)
Thank you!! Just learned something new. Wish there was a way to +rep you. :)
God you type a lot :) It's nice when devs write up what is happening behind the scenes like this (and Space Pirates and Zombies devs on the steam forums).
I love the new look and will be buying another copy for LAN multiplayer and say thanks for the extra work on the art - may have to be a couple of paychecks from now :(
I bought on gamersgate - Is there any way to make the download file have the version number as part of the name? I never know what version it is until I uninstall and download and install "towns(alpha).exe." I end up having to wait a few days after release of a new version and hope they updated it :(
Anything that makes a server easy to create is great! Minecrafts new 1.31 release makes creating a LAN server out of any map you are playing sooo easy that even I can run a server and have family members join.
+rep for all your hard work :)
This game is like art. Glad for the sale and looking forward to playing this and trying to understand it. Really polished and it is clear how much time, effort, and love went into this title. :)
