I like the older style games like Jagged Alliance 2, fallout 1 & 2, Dungeon Keeper, Final Fantasy 7 - 10 and the like. The only worth while games out today are Mass Effect 1 & 2 and GTA4 imo :\
Looking great, and I love the amount of detail you put into your posts, it reminds me of the guy that does ultima ratio regum and I read all the way through. Sorry if you've mentioned this before but are you looking for any testers at all? I have some experience in testing (edler scrolls online, Survarium, and a couple of indie games and mods) so I would love to help out.
What will this DayZ clone do differently that means I should buy this rather than the tens of thousands of other games that look pretty much the same as this? What unique features do you have in this game?
I dunno why you think it's not intuitive, the link for it is on the homepage, it says "Depri's v1.13 Builds Repository" when you click on that it'll launch: Onedrive.live.com. Download and enjoy.
Don't be sorry, it's your game, you encountered an issue and have adapted so I think you've done the right thing, I just don't like episodic games as I feel like they allow a dev to charge more money for a complete game overall. So how much in total would I be paying for a game?
Good luck with the project.
It sounded good until you said "released episodically", no thanks.
Fantastic news, also gratz on getting greenlit, I've been following this game for ages and know how much work you've put into this, very happy for you :D
Damn, looks pretty powerful, I imagine these are going to be stupidly expensive, one time use and be seen as a galatic atrocity?
While I don't fancy the graphics much (looks a bit like a more fancy RPG maker) I can't stay away from anything that mentions steampunk and RPG so I will certainly give the demo a go and consider voting in greenlight. Regardless good luck with the project.
Looks quite rough in the screnshots but anything that says cyberpunk is an auto-track
Sounds good, like it could almost be an updated version of Space Empires 5 which is no bad thing at all. Good luck with the project.
And this is where I got confused on your Project Ed game, this is what I was thinking about, it must have just been I recongised your name from this project. Anyway I've also been tracking this to see what comes of it :)
Looks interesting, and I love what you did with the title :)
Pay to win game, not interested.
Ok, so you aknowledge that your game is one in a sea of games that are doing the same thing, so why should I follow this project? I'm willing to give you a chance if you can name some unique features or gameplay elements.
Interesting that the comments below this seem to come from accounts that only have one comment in them, and that is for this game, I smell a very strong odor of ********.
This seems interesting, but would I be able to research particular tech and custom build my units?
So glad I supported the kickstarter, this is going to be an amazing game!
“There's a fear that this desensitises people to the real risk the police face, and I find it offensive.” I don't give a **** and neither does the majority of gamers, it's a ******* game, get over it.
The only ********* that "fear" it desensitises people are people that don't understand games, if it desensitises people then there would be mass murdering all over the shop due to the number of violent games that have been released over the years.
Stupid people that don't understand the subject shouldn't be allowed to report on such things.
Always love seeing your detailed posts :)
This wouldn't work, you would need your mercs to auto fire at enemies that they could see, the closest thing you could get is changing the way the real time sneaking works (where you can see an enemy but still be in realtime because he hasn't seen you yet) but it would be near impossible to control a team of mercs trying to return fire at different enemies. Besides, JA2 as a real time game? Yuck..
Anyone wondering if this is dead - No, it is not updated on MODDB, you will need to google bears pit, it's the main forum (and has been since the games release) and contains all download links relating to 1.13 as well as other mods (1.13 with UC/DL etc). If anyone needs a hand drop me a message and i'll try and help.
I'm normally very skeptical of survival games due to how saturated the genre is but this actually looks like it's going to be different from most, at least a different perspective that could provide a unique spin on things. Didn't this use to be the open world FPS? How did you manage to change it around so quickly?
God yes, I will always be grateful for mad mugsy for helping start the 1.13 project (which I have a hand in testing! :D) and for helping bring JA2 to what it is today, I'm currently playing Vengence reloaded and having a blast.
This looks fantastic, tracking!
Glad to see this is still coming along nicely :)
Fair enough then! Good luck with your project :)
Sorry but you're naive if you think people will work from scratch, just like when paid skyrim mods first came round, there were a LOT of instances where people downloaded mods from nexus and then uploaded to steam just to try and make a quick buck before anyone noticed.
It does seem like Vavle are just looking to stick their finger in yet another pie and they're going to start killing PC gaming if they do this, they already have the shambles that is early access/greenlight which is a treasure trove of Russian developers ripping off other games and assets (not restricted to just Russians but mainly seems to be them) but it brings them money so what do they care. It wouldn't improve the quality of anything, if anything it will encourage people to rip off mods from popular sites like the nexus and upload them as their own, and how many stupid people that buy skins or basic graphic changes is it going to take before the market place is absolutely flooded with **** minor changes that are passed off as mods?
Exactly, I don't see people on twitch EXPECTING to get money (unless they've become popular enough that they bring in enough money to support themselves, in which case they've made that choice) They stream for enjoyment and people are given the choice to donate if they enjoy the content, same should be applied to mods, how sucsessful do you think twitch would be if you were forced to pay before you even viewed any content? How would refunds work while playing a modded games?
What would happen to games like Morrowind or Half Life if people start releasing paid for mods? Morrowind has been supported by a cult like following of modders for over 10 years, bring in paid mods and the potential to keep giving awesome games like that life dies. I play Jagged Alliance 2 which came out in 1999 because it has been modded to add features and change maps and I probably couldn't go back to the vanilla game, however it would put me off if I had to pay for a mod. On the other hand I know some people put a lot of effort into mods (especailly things like full conversions) and some of those do deserve money for their efforts, I personally believe that if people want to earn money from games, they need to make their own. Also as mentioned quite rightly by gnear below, wouldn't the publishers/developers require a cut of that money as you're using their game to make money yourself? By the time Vavle take their slice of the fat pie the modder is left with pennys. This would do nothing but kill gaming even more than the stupid minor DLC packs (Sims comes to mind) some people are releasing now (unlike proper content like Witcher 3 DLC).
I also think some people have forgotten what happened last time, people took things from places like nexus and uploaded them onto steam claiming to be their own, how is vavle going to police this? How would someone prove that they've created a mod?
