A couple of reviews of "D"
from AG
from JA+
Quote:
What makes D a failure and the reason it is on Just Adventure’s list of “turkeys” is exactly what is supposed to make it stand out. From the moment the game starts, players have exactly two hours to complete the game and there is no save function.


Fortunately Kairo doesn't seem to have that particilar problem.

Tomer -- I wonder if games that released months ago on disk or via other online stores are at a disadvantage on Steam Greenlight. The question asked when you vote to greenlight a game, for instance, is "would you buy this game on Steam"? Well, if you already own a copy of it, the answer would likely be "no." So you vote for it because it's a good game, worthy of greenlighting, but a "yes" vote is (when you already own the game) technically not what they are asking.

It may also be that games that are still under development are more fun to vote for in general -- the speculation as to what they might be like is quite entertaining.

Does this make any sense? wave

InlandAZ -- after glancing at the "D" reviews, I now know tha that you are a better man than I am. grin

Yeah, most folks have the same opinion of the game - for whatever reason it just struck a chord with me.

I seem to recall Inferno mentioning she enjoyed it as well.

Yeah, makes perfect sense smile It's really only hardcore fans that would up-vote it just for the sake of the creators smile It's funny how there are no products on this planet that get me so attached and worried about them as adventures -- of course by up-voting it I don't necessarily mean I'll buy it (but don't tell steam!)

If I could afford the $8 right now I'd buy it. I saw a lot of things that made me ask questions, even though it was just a trailer.

Such as, what's that spinning object in the middle of the square? And what's it for.

Or, what does that blue rod like object do? What's it for. (it looks like a rod of electricity)

What's behind the high console looking object, in the room with the hole in the ceiling?

Many questions, but the answers will have to wait.

Might it be a turkey? Sure, but doesn't every game have that opportunity? And hasn't there been a game you loved and others hated?

Trailers should not be the sole reason not to purchase a game. They are after all, only snippets of what someone thought looked good. And their likes and my likes just might differ.

I programed my mouse middle button as the 'W' key for 5 Cores. It works in this game too, so I can use the mouse to move.

How do you "program" a mouse middle button as the "W" key and how does that help you go up, down, right and left?
Sorry, never heard of this.

The game is totally controlled by the mouse for me without making any changes. Click and hold left mouse button to walk, move mouse for direction. The right button makes me jump. Don't have to use any keyboard. duh

Oh, good! Thanks, GreyFuss! I'm going to give the demo another try and see if I can make a go of it.

I didn't spend a whole lot of time with the demo and can't say that I got "hooked" at all, but I'll give it a bit more time and effort.

I wandered around today and like it. It's not organic, but it's not metalic futuristic either. So far I've seen mostly block type buildings, one of which has a really cool 'waterfall' that you can follow.
