Hi Lanomalie

If it is Steam you want I have just put my vote for it. There are going to have to be a lot more votes as it currently has 0% of what is needed to have it on Steam. Here is a direct link for those that want to vote http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92924232&searchtext=five+cores

When I tried to log in I received incorrect password and they sent me a special one. I copied it and pasted it and it kept trying to verify.. that little circle..going round and round... I deleted the copy and paste and retyped the code.. it took it and I was able to connect.
Not sure if this helps.. just thought I would share smile

Thanks Winfrey! Should we feel miffed that Steam's software thinks we are (like it) inhuman? grin

Re: Official Trailer for Five Cores, new Myst-like adventure, now on Steam Greenlight! - 08/31/12 10:35 AM

Well, I finally was recognized as "human" this morning but when I tried to vote, it said "my account does not have sufficient privileges to perform this action". Guess I won't be voting for it. If it doesn't get votes, does that mean it won't be making the game?

Re: Official Trailer for Five Cores, new Myst-like adventure, now on Steam Greenlight! - 08/31/12 01:29 PM

Ok. I'm not sure but while you have not bought any game on steam, you have a limited account.

But don't worry! Have you tried to just put my game in favorites?

Anyway the game will NOT be released exclusively on Steam (if it will). This is just my first step.

And thank you all for your support!

I noticed there is another post below about a new Myst-like adventure game. I found this one, reported to be available this month, that seems even more Myst-like. Take a peek at the screenshots and trailer as you scroll down on the site.

It's called "The Five Cores" and has 5 worlds to explore and solve. I don't know anything about the developer, Neebla Games.

Must I set up a paypal account then?
Really anxious to play this game, but not happy about not being able (?) to use a credit card?

I believe that anyone can now use a Credit Card through PayPal without a PayPal account. It is much more secure. This way you are only giving your Credit Card information to one secure place (PayPal) rather than many different web sites where you make purchases that might not be as secure. Of course the web site where you are purchasing from has to offer PayPal payments.

Thank you Ana. I had already voted at Steam early on when this thread was started.

Thanks, GreyFuss. I guess I'll check into Paypal.

Yay! This game will replace the Myst 5 End of Ages that was thrown out by a well-meaning friend that claimed end of ages was a "no-no" for me, will buy it during the 12 Days Before Christmas this year. Will it be disc or d/l format?

Any w/t available?

Re: Official Trailer for Five Cores, new Myst-like adventure, now on Steam Greenlight! - 09/06/12 06:58 PM

The game is not even released cruise, there is no walkthrough out yet.

I have not seen any reference to retail. I believe it will be a download as of right now.

Re: Official Trailer for Five Cores, new Myst-like adventure, now on Steam Greenlight! - 09/14/12 06:50 PM

It's still in pretty much beta shape. No hints, and no walkthru. Worse yet, some "features" -- such as hitting F1 take you to a wireframe model of the game topography. I then can't get out of the wireframe without crashing the game to the desktop. There is no warning anywhere that this will happen, and it leave me wondering what other frog-size tech bugs are still in there somewhere.

It also did not load a desktop icon for the game. I had to find the install directory, and even then I had to create my own shortcut (pointing, by the way, to (your root)\The Five Cores\Binaries\Win32\UDK.exe in order to launch the game. The main menu is VERY slow to reset choices in my install. But I'm running 64 bit, and I notice it seems to think it's a 32 bit game.

It looks to me like it was released somewhat too quickly under pressure be being past their deadline. Nonetheless, I decided I'd buy it, play with it a bit -- then sit back and wait for a patch or two and a walkthru to try to really go very far into the game. Good luck.

Re: Official Trailer for Five Cores, new Myst-like adventure, now on Steam Greenlight! - 09/14/12 07:18 PM

Not sure why you had the problem with a Launch Icon...You can launch the game through the Programs Menu or create shortcut for your Desktop there. (is there a Program Menu in Win 7?) Also I don't understand why you would even want to hit the F1 key for anything. If you need help why not Post a question in the Hints Forum. It certainly isn't necessary for a developer to add hints and walkthroughs to their game. This was a labor of love by an inexperienced Myst lover and so far this game is fantastic and I give kudos for this Indie giving us something that has been too long coming. Heres hoping that they will be successful and continue bringing us more games.

Are you used to playing casual adventures?
Very few adventure games have hints or a walkthrough. That's a recent innovation from casual game makers. The closest most adventure games ever get to a Hint feature is making hotspots light up when you press the spacebar, and even that is relatively recent.

I bought this game as soon as it came out. I knew as soon as I booted it up it wasn't going to be Myst-quality, but that's fine with me. It has its problems but so far it's a good attempt at continuing where Myst 5 left off.

Re: Official Trailer for Five Cores, new Myst-like adventure, now on Steam Greenlight! - 09/15/12 01:01 AM

Called me confused, according to ArtDent the F1 key is a feature of Five Cores. But according to GreyFuss there's no reason to use it. So is it or isn't it a key that helps with game play?

If it isn't a usable key during game play then it was a key used during development to allow the designer to access the wireframe to make sure the image was as wanted. And it should have been deactivated during the final development of the game.

If on the other hand it is an active key during the game then it's been programmed incorrectly, and will need a patch to reprogram it.

A correctly programmed game will not allow unintended key presses, they will be ignored. Only those key presses designed for the game will be monitored and acted upon.

ArtDent, you may have been able to use the escape key to get out of the wireframe model; you didn't say if you tried that key. That seems to be a favorite key to get out of things.

Well, the "country bumpkin" returns to the Adventure games site after an absence of several years. Must be fate. Myst is what got me started with buying a computer just so I could play that game. And, look what's here! I have been on the Casual Games site so long I don't even know what this "Steam"-thing is. Looks like I have some catching up to do. Will I buy this game?.....oh, YES! Adventure land, here I come again.

Why not try pressing other F keys like I did. crazy

Instead of pressing Esc I hit F1 by accident and figured something was wonky.

Re: Official Trailer for Five Cores, new Myst-like adventure, now on Steam Greenlight! - 09/18/12 05:30 PM

Just played the game for like an hour.
It looks good and atmospheric.
Though I've explored a lot, I cannot say I really solved anything yet smile Or if I did - I didn't really realize I was. I cannot judge the puzzles yet...

I agree however that the game is rather buggy. I had to restart it for about 5 times after getting stuck in weird corners I can't get out from (yes, I'm snooping everywhere!)

Anyway, respect for the beautiful work -- let's see how it develops.

(I have to say though, despite the Myst vibe, it really isn't close to achieving the depth of Myst, story-wise so far)
