It's like a slow-motion car crash over here
Not gone terribly well so far (about 3 hours) then :)
Steam community forums... that place is a kindergarten with no useful content or information no matter what the game.
Oh, I don't know... they're almost better than the Youtube comments section, and that's saying a lot! Nothing good though...
And now I'm even more convinced of waiting until the Xmas sale before picking this up. IF I ever pick it up. Jesus.
Yea, that's what happens if you run out of time/money at the end of a development process... and there's not enough time for a proper beta test.
Let's be honest, releasing a game which appears to have the following key assignments
"d" for right and "s" for down "q" for left and "z" for up
and the only way of changing them is in a config file
Is not big or clever... ;)
Yes, I know, German keyboard layout - but it shows Steam obviously apply zero quality control to games.
I'd assumed they did some testing - at least to confirm the game would actually work!? :)
As a foreigner, let me just say that at least you people with 'normal' (english) Keyboard layouts can now understand the trouble some of us foreigners have to endure when some games only consider your keyboard layout.
A note to any developers out there: If you're are making a plattformer or some other game which is meant to be controlled via a keyboard: Don't utilise the 'x' and 'z' keys, use 'x' and 'c' instead. My fingers (and my mental health) would be very grateful.
Seriously, why did consoles (and subsequently console ports) stop doing this?! The most idiotic move this generation in my opinion. What, did some playtester bind all his keys to the reset button in a test session of Gears of War before the consoles launched or something???
PC Specs: I have a big e-peen
Is that really Steam's responsibility trjp? Aren't they just there for distributing it?
Virtual Pilot 3Dô NEVER NOT SCAM!
Looks like this game would've never have passed neither Greenlight, nor Steam internal QA procedures.
There's no manifesto. There's no formal plan.
French! That explains everything then.
Let's stop berating the community for a second and consider that distributing a game into a country with a different keyboard layout than your local one without any consideration for what playability issues this might cause is entirely 100% developer's fault.
I wanted to complain about you linking to the community discussion instead of the classic Steam forum. Then I realised this doesn't even have an old-style forum.
Fuck Valve's "improvements". I'd take 2007's Steam over this shit if I could.

So no community, overlay, Steamworks, cloud support, Mac, daily sales, mobile, big picture, greenlight or applications?
