    Idk about FTL but this sure makes me dislike onlive

    It's put me in a queue because onlive is having high user volume

    This is certainly something I'm gonna check out when I get home from work tomorrow. Too bad the $100 investment is taken up already. :P

    really fun game, wish the demo wasn't done through onlive though, it's really laggy for me :(

    Probably going to throw it some money via kickstarter, getting it sooner via a beta would be great.

    Just a FYI. The target price of this game is around $10 when it comes out. And hopefully beta won't be via Onlive again. Nevermind the beta will be through desura or direct download.

    Had a chance to play it last night after finishing my nightly X3AP havoc.

    It was definitely fun, and I will buy it, but I found it very easy. Early on, I dumped scrap in to my shields and reactor so that I had 4 shield bars and could support everything else. It was rare that anything could drop my shields, and anything that did break through was meager.

    As a result, I didn't experience much of the "holy shit save the ship" gameplay. At 1:15AM (I get up for work at 6:30..) the trial flashed the 1 minute warning. I straight up turned off my shields and was breaking apart in short order.

    I enjoy the combat mechanism, though you basically always need to open by going for their shields. Also, it'd be nice if it were a bit faster. The fact that you can pause to strategize makes it so that you do not need all the weapon charge time that the game provides you with.

    I'm donating $25 for beta access :D

    Tom Francis of Gunpoint described it as “Firefly by way of Spelunky.” It has also been compared to Weird Worlds and Battlestations.

    Hey, someone other than me that played Weird Worlds! :^:

    Stumbled across this on RPS, and oh look we had a thread on PA. Keeping my eyes open for this.

    Played the demo a few times. First time I had any trouble with the combat was when the enemy launched a laser drone and I only had 1 shield strength. It kept my shield suppressed while their laser did its work on my systems. I managed to damage their drone control system to shut the drone down, and launched my missile at their shield generator, crippling it. I started shooting at the rooms with crew in them and managed to kill a couple via incidental fires that broke out in their life support. What the fuck are they supposed to do when life support is on fire lol.

    Tried it on OnLive. Not impressed with OnLive, but yeah. I like FTL.

    Yeah, even with a great ISP, OnLive is a bummer. The slight delay to the mouse movement is a pain.

    Doesn't make the game any less fun.

    I played it way too much. Not that it means anything, but the highest score I'm able to get is 994.

  • GaslightGaslight Registered User regular
    Not really enthusiastic about the idea of fucking around with OnLive, but will definitely give this a try when a more freely available beta/demo is out.

    What this makes me hope for is one day seeing something done in the vein of Space Station 13. I do very much like my ever present threat of vacuum in my crazy people simulator.

    Wow didn't know that was even possible :P

    Incidentally I don't want to shit too much on onlive, Darksiders is fantastic on my tablet

    Running the mouse server side is the wrong way to do it though, and lends itself poorly to games like this

    Yeah I've actually been having a great experience with Onlive so far. Being able to play games on my laptop that it could never handle feels a bit like magic.

    Oh, was searching for faster than light. Thanks guys.

    Alternately just click on "Showcase" on the main menu, and then click on the billboard for "Indie Game Showcase"

    now that I know the sector 2 boss ship is kill-able I keep trying to get a run good enough to accomplish that. Just can`t seem to get all the key bits together on one run though, and onlive doesn`t make playing the demo easy with the crazy mouse lag I get from it.

    Got it down to 5 hull once, You seem to need max sensors, 3 or 4 shield, full hull, all your crew, and than you need at least 2 weapons that can pierce shields, normally missiles. if you can take out its weapons and keep them down you win.

    the wait for a beta that's not on onlive is going to drive me crazy.

    Probably going to start another set of $100 ones, just need to figure out a reward. Sit tight :D

    Ever figure something out? I checked it semi-regularly and, unless it went up and sold out in one of the times I didn't look, I didn't see anything.

    They put up an $80, and (I believe) a $500.

    I love it that someone bought the unique $2000 design-an-alien-race Kickstarter level.

    That $5000 level is still available, folks!

    What was it like in Shanghai? I know when I think of Indie Development, I don't think of China, that's for sure.

    Weird Worlds was alright, just way too short.

    Hopefully this will be a bit more of a long-lived game.

    True, but I'd like a long-lasting SPACE EPIC that isn't Mass Effect. :(

    Oh, well, still Kickstarter'd this. Which the OP hasn't included in the original post. >:|

    Gonna try out the demo now.

    Pretty sure the omission of the Kickstarter link was per mod instructions, given that the developer was given permission to start the thread.

    I don't know about an open offline demo, there will be access to the beta for those who supported the kickstarter (which won't be through onlive).

    That's going to be some seriously tasty Ramen.

    Isn't beta access only for 25$+ backers?
