    Also if you download it, for the love of god use the torrent link if at all possible

    that's what torrents are for

    Double++ gaming? Awesome.

    I really liked that last game you linked us to Rank.

    I am gonna try this one too.

    Downloading (from the torrent!) now. I've gotta go to work, but I look forward to playing this after. It almost looked puzzler-ish to me. Color me intrigued.

    I heard torrents were the same as murdering freedom, or something.

    This game literally just came out.

    Like, an hour ago, if that.

  • ArangArang Registered User regular
    but it should have come out yesterday

    anyway it'll be done in less than a minute and then I will distribute it to the masses according to their need

    Remember folks.

    Leave your torrent up after it is done to help other people get it faster!

  • FyndirFyndir Registered User regular
    P.S. What is a good torrent program these days? I just realised I don't actually have one on my PC.

  • chrishallett83chrishallett83 Hi! Registered User regular
    I downloaded BitTorrent for this, it seems pretty simple.

    Is the goto program.

    3.0 is slick.

    EDIT: What Tossrock said. Click off all the tick boxes when you install.

    Thanks guys.

    I probably won't leave this running for long after I download, given that I'm only seeing 0.3 - 0.5kb/s upspeed for whatever reason I wouldn't be contributing much anyway, and I don't really want to sit and try and figure out everything that could be preventing it when there's every chance it's just my ISP going "UPLOADS?! WE DON'T LIKE THOSE" or something stupid.

  • UrielUriel Registered User regular
    Yeah for some reason the download is done but I ain't uploading anything.

    Probably just my location, upload rate and how few people are downloading this early.

    I just noticed the post about this all being brand spanking new.

    I guess I'll leave it up for a day or so and see if my speed picks up over the weekend.

  • ArangArang Registered User regular
    my main gameplay tip so far is to play it as a stealth game, not trying to kill every enemy before moving on like I did

    also, staying on torches is safe as far as I can tell, so use those to plan your route before you move

    don't be afraid to jump to the floor and then another torch if you can chain from that torch and in the opposite direction of where the enemies will look

    oh, and stay the fuck away from that angel

    Hey everyone, I'm one of the developers on Deity and I've added more trackers to the torrent.

    udp://tracker.istole.it:80/
    udp://tracker.torrentbox.com:2710/announce


    And from everyone on the team, we hope you guys enjoy the game!
    We're really excited to hear what you guys think!

    You guys submit this to any game sites? I sent a tip out to RPS and Kotaku about it, as I didn't see much on there.

  • ArangArang Registered User regular
    okay, I just finished it

    I got kind of stuck
    Spoiler:

    overall it's a very enjoyable game

    the art was kind of reminiscent of a warcraft 3 mod, is that a coincidence or is this based off something else?

    We only written to RPS so far but I'm getting around to other sites. I haven't had proper sleep in 48 hours lol.

    It's mere coincidence :) Although, our game's art style took some inspiration from dungeon crawlers like Torchlight and Diablo.

    We've had playtesters give feedback about the same issues and the response was 50/50 positive and negative (people actually liked having to hunt for the torches, haha), so we left it.

    Gotta say, that was a short game. But a very fun one!

    I'm not sure if I'll end up playing it, but I am downloading the torrent anyway to let everyone suck on my swedish e-teet

    Glad you liked it! You should try it on hard mode if you feel like a challenge, heh.

  • FyndirFyndir Registered User regular
    Little thing that is making the game feel a tad easy, for me.

    Pretty much opinions in here, so feel free to ignore entirely and/or call me a goose as necessary. <3
    Spoiler:

    Overall my early impression of the game is really good, the mechanics feel interesting and enjoyable, the tutorial was well presented without being too long or laborious to get through (which is something some games struggle with), and I'm happy to go back to playing it once I finish this post.

    It is actually intended for you not to take damage from the front while you are chaining. It was explained in one of the text tips in the first level :) Aside from being able to plan your attacks in advance, we wanted the chains to make you feel more powerful whenever you use them. But depleting your chain supply instantly after using them makes it such that you can't just charge into a buttload of enemies and turn it into slaughterfest.

    I'd recommend playing the game on hard once you've finished your first playthrough! It's way more challenging :)

    During the latter half of the game:
    Spoiler:

    I don't know if it's iintended, but I was only playing it on normal. Hard might remove it.

    I guess what was getting to me was how easy it was to spam a group of 4 to death, then back to a torch to refill my chains, because even if I took a bit of damage before getting to a torch I could heal up a few seconds later with another chain use to take down a few people, but if you guys are happy with it then I'll happily roll with it.
