Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
It's not what Bigity is asking for since it's an rts, but I really wish that Flagship game had met it's Kickstarter goal. It's still being worked on despite not getting funded, but they're having to cut a lot of the proposed content due to the fact that they're working on it in their spare time. It looked so damn cool too
Well. I'll start with I play on the PC. I played the game in early days. Seemed cool but there wasn't a lot of meat on the bones. I would check in on it every couple of months and it didn't make much visible progress in my eyes.
But Holy Crap!
The way the game looks now to the last time I played is leaps and bounds an improvement. It looks like a real game now. Last time I played you didn't have a ship/homebase. The tutorial was laughable, the hacking was different. It is still bad about telling you where to go, but it is a little better.
My ign is Rezin8r.
I actually played 4 or 5 missions in a row, and it didn't feel like a slog.
Besides looking for fun people to play with, my next question would be for a suggestion on controls?
How do the PC people set up their keys? It seems like there are a couple of commands that make the controls a little unwieldy. Sprinting, sliding and the melee attack is difficult. Or do people just plug in their xbox controllers?
Thanks in advance
My key setup is basically the default, but I have melee on RMB, aim on a Mouse Thumb button, and crouch on E because I use it all the time and contorting my hand to constantly toggle Ctrl was tedious.
See, my pinkie tip rests on shift and I just lower the rest of it and use the middle/bottom part of my pinkie to hit ctrl. It's super easy and feels kind of natural to run with the tip of the pinkie and then follow through with the slide by just moving the rest of the pinkie down.
