    Looks similar to the John Wick game which was unfortunately bad

    John Wick Hex just felt incredibly underbaked in almost every way.

    I'd be willing to believe there's a way to make a game entirely just Transistor's turn combat work.

    Nominated as a IGF Seamus McNally Finalist, NightSky is an ambient action-puzzle game that offers a gameplay experience unlike any other—cerebral challenges fill uniquely designed picturesque worlds. The player must maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance; each of these worlds is broken into different areas. The original soundtrack by experimental jazz musician, Chris Schlarb will further heighten the surreal experience.

    Key features:
    • 2D platform/puzzle-based gameplay
    • Advanced 2D physics model
    • Multiple difficulties with unique topography
    • 11 massive levels, each with expansive areas to explore
    • Multiple “vehicles” each with specific uses and dynamics physics
    • Additional secrets and unlockables

    This is open the the PA Adventure Team group as before because I don't know how to restrict this to fewer than "Everyone" or "an existing group to which I already belong".

    Congrats cB557 on winning this one too. I've sent you the key via Steamgifts and via PM. Let me know if it doesn't work.

    Woo built the foundation for my new steel factory and got some of the smelters up and running. Time to build the next floors up to get steel pipe production back going again, and encased steel beams. I do have a decent stockpile of beams at least, so that will keep me going with the Mk4 conveyors I just unlocked. Should have jetpack and trains too. I'll have to get rotor/motor production back up and running here soon though, just about out of motors... Just enough to get through some milestones.

    I wonder if they track data on how players pick settings.

    I'd be interested to see how many players turned the gear level system off.

    If you enjoyed Wildlands it is much the same. I got it for $13 off of Epic and am enjoying it. I don't even really care about the main story, just run around till I find stuff to or a base to sneak into and murder everyone.

    According to Epic, it will be covering up to 100 percent of development costs, including salaries, QA, localisation and marketing, but developers won't have to give up ownership of their games or creative control in the bargain. As for the profit split, developers will get at least 50 percent after Epic has recouped costs.

    I'm not sure what's worse: how bad that deal sounds or that it's likely very good compared to other publishers.

    It's very good, especially for smaller devs. I wonder if Epic published games will sell on Steam.

    EDIT: Speaking of EGS, World War Z is currently a freebie.

    I don't see how that deal sounds bad at all? You own your ip, all of your costs are covered, and then you get half of the profits after dev costs are paid?

    Like, at the end of the day if your game doesn't make a profit, you come out even and Epic is the one eating the costs. That's a huge benefit for a small developer

    No gear level system might make Breakpoint better, but overall I think it would still be a bad game. I won't know though, I already finished it and i'm not going back Jim.

    Yeah that honestly seems like a really good publishing deal, epic is taking on all of the risk if it works as advertised there. I imagine what they get out of it is pushing the epic game store with more exclusives that will not be on steam 1 year later.

    Yeah I wouldn't begrudge them keeping anything they fully fund on the Epic store.

    Makes good sense to me.

    I am playing The Room VR. It is a The Room game but in VR. If you like those games and have some kind of VR then try it! It seems good so far.

    There's new DLC for Cities Skylines today, "Sunset Harbor".

    Which introduced me to the concept of Second Release Date.

    The release date of Sunset Harbor was this morning, I bought it this morning, I downloaded it this morning, but I won't actually be able to play it until the mods it breaks are updated. So now I'm waiting...

    It'll pay for the game, but it looks like, to my layman's eyes, that it makes it a lot harder to make a long-term profit. It's nice if your game doesn't do so great, but if you get a big success Epic is going to siphon off most of the revenue.

    Like I said, I don't think it sounds good, but it's likely better than anything else offered elsewhere.

    Something I missed from the article earlier.
    Like Epic's strategy with its store, however, there's the question of its sustainability. Epic's been throwing its money around to net exclusive launches and weekly free games to tempt people into installing another platform, and in April last year Sweeney predicted that investments in freebies and exclusives would exceed the store's net profits for the year. And that certainly seems to have been the case. In January, Epic announced that $680 million had been spent on the store, but when you factor in the revenue split, which nets Epic 12 percent, and the cost of the exclusive deals, including more than $10 million for Control, it looks like it took a loss.

    So the EGS is operating at a loss right now.
    I'm curious how much longer Epic will keep that up.

    New puzzles though right? It'd be rather silly to get it for VR just to have it be a repeat.

    To be fair I've only played the first one twice, loved it both times.

    well sure, that's the point. Epic takes the risk that you can even make a profitable game.

    I understand the concept, I still think the final numbers sound bad.

    I'm not sure what the industry norm is for publisher cut of sales; but that 50% is coupled with a great deal of safety for the developer if they don't score a mega-hit which is like 95% of indie games.
