Played for 30 minutes (feedback)
« on: October 09, 2013, 08:01:36 PM »
Hello all,

I played the game for about 30 minutes, did not have time for more. I have following notes:

- the game is definitely off for a good start, it's interesting and challenging, and has the "arcen vibe".
- On my pc on defaults setting the narrator voice in the beginning can hardly be heard because of the music. Maybe it's hardware related, but other defaults could be proper. Or to "dim" music when narration starts
- Is there a wiki or something that describes all the bots? We know that the dumbot misses its first shot always, but is this documented anywhere?
- Sorry if this one sounds harsh, it is not meant to, I just don't know how to put it nicer. The game graphics is good. The UI that is being cloned from other Arcen games is not that good. Can you get artists to do buttons/frames/borders for you? The UI that is shown when you click on a slot in the inventory is downright ugly and looks like a wireframe to me, but the rest of menus and controls do not look nice either. The icons on the left and right are good though. The tooltips I also like.

Thank you for listening.

I'd agree that the game could definitely use a wiki set up for it;  this is exactly the type of game that could most use one.  Very often wikis are helpful for roguelikes, or for any game that is similar to one.  Listings of the enemies, how they behave, and tips on how to beat them would likely be a very good thing, since the game can be pretty mean at times.  I actually find that with roguelikes and such, I tend to just ASSUME there's a wiki somewhere for whatever game I'm playing, and I doubt I'm the only one that does that.


To the devs:  If you guys would like to set up a wiki for the game, I'd be willing to help out with it, like with the Valley 1 wiki.   There's probably a couple of others here that'd be happy to help as well.

Time is tight, but I wouldn't mind putting together some strategy information as well.  I've never worked on a wiki, though, so I might need a little advice  :-[

Done. Thanks for the offer.

As usual, if anyone else wants to help and needs wiki edit access, please let me know.
