    According to the video best version is the Saturn version, which has no PC port, courtesy of lawyers. So basically emulators.

    Unfortunately the PC-version of Powerslave is quite bad compared with the console version, for once.

    According to the video, the dos version of Powerslave is essentially a different game with different maps, less puzzles and less platforming. It uses an early version of the build engine, and all it shares in common with the saturn and ps1 version is art assets.

    the ps1 version apparently has the best geometry and textures, but the maps are simplified compared to the saturn version. That means some areas removed, open areas made closed / corridors, and the I believe he said some puzzles simplified as well.

    edit: also, powrslaveXL exists and it ports the assets from the ps1 version.

    The versions DFRetro covers in this video are the console versions IIRC (Saturn & PS1, and he did another video about PowerSlave EX which is a PC port of the Playstation version). Those versions are not running on BUILD, they run on the Slavedriver engine Lobotomy Entertainment made and they are basically entirely different and differently structured games.

    The PC version (the one I have been praising in this thread) is by no means bad. It's just a completely different sort of game. The console versions are more like a first-person metroidvania/metroid prime sort of game, whereas the PC version is a classic Doom-styled FPS game. I'm really fond of the PC version but it's not without its faults, the original control scheme rivals System Shock 1 in clunkiness and it doesn't really serve good combat. There is a mod you can get which makes it control like Duke Nukem 3D and makes the combat and movement a lot more fun - the only problem with that is that it also kinda breaks some of the levels.

    Basically, the original control scheme has super low speed strafing, this means it's pretty much not worth strafing around enemies. The mod increases the strafing speed to make it more like a conventional FPS of the time, but because the levels were designed around the original strafing speed, the speed bonus you get from performing straferunning lets you do some small skips within the levels (you may even do it by accident if you don't notice how tight the platforming is meant to be in some places originally). But it's worth it to improve the combat, as long as you're mindful of it.

    Game is SO not done, if it was, they would be releasing more levels as time goes on, which was their original plan for doing EAccess.

    Stay tuned for a low-key trainwreck in early 2019.

    If there is any sort of delay I am 100% right on it never being finished or being very low on content.

    They shouldn't delay out of holiday 2018 to Q1 2019 to avoid AAA games, because there's a FUCK-TON of AAA games coming out in Q1 2019. February especially.

    So they have announced a boxed collector's edition for $100, unless you use GOG's code (GOG-B9BWBQ98NZ35) or already own it on steam, that is limited to 500 copies. I grabbed one since I like to support physical media where I can and this looks really good. I'm waiting for the whole thing to come out before playing anything though. Same with Dusk.

    The current "preview campaign" is unique I believe, not the first two levels of the main game or anything. So there's no real reason to wait.
