    Tags: After; Hyperdrive Game Studios

    Hyperdrive Gaming Studios had put their first game, After, out on Early Access. Take jobs in this open world, end of the world driving, shooting, and beating people up CRPG. Did I mention beating people up? There's a lot of that in the trailer. So, if you're looking for a post apocalyptic fix, there you go. Here's more info:

    • Explore An Unique World!
      Make your own choices in a large detailed open world, discover factions fighting to control the wasteland and the small number of supplies left.
    • Be Who You Wanna Be!
      Build your character as you like with attributes and skills, collect boy scout badges to grant special perks, and build the best you.
    • Enjoy The Beauty!
      Next-generation graphics bring this world to life and allow for a hyper-detailed and realistic environment. Dynamic day and night systems affect lighting in the world in real-time

    As much as I love indie games, I do kind of wish that they'd refrain from adding terrain features until the game can handle what happens when something interacts with those features. Yes, Early Access, but it's still kind of odd to see. That said, the graphics and such do look pretty good for a first outing.

    Why is this happening? There are a lot of much better games being released on Steam, that are ALSO not RPGs, like most of those posts, but none of those are mentioned, we just get posts about not just non-RPGs (which I generally don't mind) but about horrible early access indie garbage on top of that.

    If you can be bothered to scroll back and give me the date when Proverbius started making those posts here, I'll also go back over the Steam games released since then and will pick at least 5 better ones.

    You have to give saint_proverbius a break though. He is just some 50yo+ boomer living on a farm in USA.

    I don't mean to turn this into random insults and a personal attack on the guy, I'm just genuinely confused what the principle behind picking out those games is.

    But as promised, here's 5 better mostly non-RPG games that have come out on Steam since April 13.

    Ah yes, you know when the trailer runs at 15 FPS that the game is going to be great.

    Also, preorders for an Early Access game?

    Wow.

    Looks like a Cyberpunk 2077 mod.

    Even better is his review on Steam:

    It's the ONLY review of the game, too. He's right though, especially considering the feature list which apparently the game as it is now mostly lacks. If you want to put out something like this with a feature list like that, you might want to let people know those things are in progress and not currently in what you're paying for. That said, he's also right about it being a great idea for a game. Releasing it now even in Early Access in the state it's in for $20 is shooting yourself in the foot.

    Because quality control is a foreign concept to Saint_Proverbius.

    If the PVE tag is on there, they just recently added it. It wasn't there when I posted about it. It wouldn't shock me, a lot of the other things that are tagged aren't in the game yet either.
