Tags: Space Hack

Remember <A href="http://spacehack.rebelmind.com/">Space Hack</a>, which was renamed to that long, strange name I can't remember? Well, apparently it was released, a few people noticed, and it's finally got a <A href="http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/593/593984p1.html">post mortem</a> on <A href="http://rpgvault.ign.com/">RPGVault</a>. Anyway, funny clip:
<br>
<br>
<blockquote>Space Hack is a somewhat rare type of game, a proper hack and slash in a space setting. It is fully 3D with an isometric view. It was created especially for less demanding players - think of it as kind of like an introduction to serious RPGs. We have simple development of our character, a few dozen types of weapons, and several dozen kinds of beasts hiding out there to kill us. Our goal was to create a simple game for everyone. And we succeeded. We got a huge response from players who started to like RPGs, thanks to ours. One of German game portals, games www.gamecaptain.de, gave it the highest grade ever for any RPG. We got a better score than Diablo and Dungeon Siege.</blockquote>

What the hell? Someone needs a reality intervention. I mean, the demo for the game was okay, but come on.

Looks like gamecaptain.de saved up those cereal tokens for that free home lobotomy kit, before deciding to take up reviewing.

Or perhaps there are backdoor shenannigans going on between the two. Like free sloppy blowjobs for every good review. I know thats an offer I couldn't refuse.

Well, the game isn't that bad, really. Saying it's better than Diablo or has brought people in to the CRPG genre is a load of horseshit, though.

Sacred beats the crap out of it, though.
