updated today, yet still no keys for desura people.
I dont want to. This game turned my son gay.
Wow! Now game says "Beta is over"...DO NOT BUY THIS GAME, it does not work anymore!
WTF?!?! I payed for this game! Now my CD key does not even work.
Thease guys get steam greenlit, and they kill all of the Desura people?
I want my money back!
Oh cool, so some kid can slave for free for you. This is not employment if you are not going to pay them, it is called slavery.
Conning kids into being free forum mods is pretty dispicible.
Just goes tho show that is company spares no expense to rip off kids.
Wow! the dev's have contacted steam and have tried to get me banned for complaining about this game.
Gee... So rather than try and fix their game, they are going to go around and try "silenceing" people.
They told steam support that my account was a spam bot. Steam contacted me to make sure I was a human and stopped the ban.
All I did wrong was give thease guys money for a game.... They ripped me off, I complain and they go around trying to trash my accounts.
Seriously, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME... The developers might turn on you and try getting your steam account banned if you complain about the game.
Save your money, this game is a complete rip off.
I was an early adopter of this game, and I still have not ever been ablt to play.
First time I installed the authentication servers where screwed up...
Now every time i try to install and play it teklls me INVALID password... so I try to do password recovery- No account!... Try to contact tech support and NOTHING!
Seriously... Do not waste your money or time on this game. Buy Stronghold or any other WORKING game.
Wish my fat wife had a rubber neck like that.
Buy this game...
If you have any love for racing, and blasting your compitition , this game rocks.
I takes up charm where games like BLUR completely missed.
It is in a bundle now, so there is no excuse not to buy it for you and all of your friends!!
most point and click games are just a giant "pixel hunt".
This game has beutiful graphics, and sounscapes,
I found it refreshing that the developer allowed people to go to a lot of the areas, before stumping them with puzzles.
No pixelhunting here... full on graphics, with unique logic.
Well done.... I got the game as part of a bundle, but I definately think it is worth every cent of the full asking price.
Any fans of Steel sky or the old sierra games will love this. It is not a clone of oldschool point and clicks, it offers a few new things to the table.... namely GAMEPLAY before the puzzles get too advanced to proceed.
I have a feeling I am going to be playing a lot of this game.
yet another game that does not run on Ubuntu.
I cant wait for my windows computer to arive.
they are full of ****. only the windows verson ever worked. We are getting ripped off
Linux version does not work.
Desura really needs to test this Sh!t before they ripp people off.
Linux uses, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!
It is obvious that they did not even test the linux version
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME,IT IS A SCAM
They should start giving refunds. They have claimed a linux verson for a long time now, and everytime they update, they $^ck it up completely.
This is why I am going to stop buying "Indie" trash
linux 12.04 Ubuntu... Intel GPU... Click on gmae, and nothing.
THink I am going back to windows soon, this is really depressing, the wine version is all broken too.
If you are running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and/or an intel GPU, you might want to spend your money on a different game.
I bought the GRoupee bunble, then I saw this had a linux version soI bought the FULL Desura version too :)
Cool update , I like the apples :)
Seems like a performace boost too. Thanks :)
What an awesome patch!
Windows 7 with an 8 core 3.6ghz processor, I am seeing a major boost in performance.
Do you have a wiki or instruction book on how to play? TIA :)
only complaint is that you have some sort of noise for the lighting tricks you are using. (Ambient occlusion?) Your noise is based on the camerac cords rather than the world cords it seems. The noise mask moves with the camera, and is pretty obvious. Maybe a bug? if so, I am using an Nvidia 570 1 gig card, latest drivers as of last night.
If it is not a bug, maybe you can offer some sort of post-processing blur, so it is not as obvious? It will make it blend better too, but might make the FPS go down too much.
The blur will remove any motteling .
You pull it off better than most. Mainly it is an excuse for "I really do not want to share my profitts with some smelly artist."
You atleast try to make an artform out of it. Most devs are just slopping together any bunch of pixels no a days.
Thank you for the responce, I am going to buy your gaqme today, and give it a fair review.
Seriously, Software is a lot less expensive outside Australlia. They do like 500% markup.
Something like this on Steam would only be under $10 in the USA.
I am not saying it is not worth every cent, I am just saying I cant justify paying it.
I am more of a FPS kind of guy. (not COD or BF)
If it popped on sale for $7 I would have to controll myself not to snatch up a copy.
Why is this not in the Alpha fund section?
Well, anyway I just wanted to comment on the graphics. They are pretty nice, and likeable.
The good graphics and teh unique gameplay make me want to buy this game. I even feel that the price is fair.
Well done. I usually do not give good reviews to alpha games, this one is truely a gem.
I will wait until it is either in a bundle or on sale, I am more of an FPS and Block building game type of guy. I would probably only play it until I learned the basics of the game before i moved on to something else.
Hope to see you guys do well with this title. It is a true gem in a sea of poorly developed indie turds.
Hope you guys help raise the bar on "Indie" quality.
All UDK games are like this, you need a $5000 computer to play this game properly.
Same thing with Crysis 2
This reminds me of a game :)
A note to parents.
This game turned my son gay. Beware.
I at least had the decency to say "poop", the other guys did not even bother saying anything.
Wow, reminds me of an old Amiga game my frend played all the time.
Not my cup of team , but I just wanted to say very nice graphics. Very nice looking ambiance.
$20 in a sea of $1-$5 game's is probably not the greatest buisiness choice.
I would grab a copy for maybe $3, but this is just way too much.
People outside of australlia get software at a much cheaper rate. you need to adjust your prices for the world market too.
I can see $1-$3 for a game like this. But $9?
Might grab it if I see it in a bundle. I llike the sound effects in the video, but the game itself looked a little but bland, and half-baked.
If the graphics improve (Eg, more types of background tiles) , or the price goes down a significant level , I might grab a copy.
This almost resembles a game. $12 to "pixel hunt"... I think I will pass.
Maybe if this was released for the Amiga back in the late 1980's it would have been worth $12.
Hrrmmm. All this "retro" look crap is getting to be really overbearing.
Just a thought, but maybe if you added some fun elements, it would qualify as a "game"
wow thanks for the information.
This along with the developer ignoring people asking about random level generatin is enough to keep me away.
Buying an abandoned game is like buying smelly old shoes.
If there is not going to be any further development, then the game should be priced around 1-2$ max.
It should also bear the "Alpha" or "prototype" label.
