    I just woke up (6:32 am here) and clicked on the release button. So give it a try and let me know if it works.

    We completely forgot about the trailer (Nick was the only one who finally passed a perception check and remembered that the trailer is old and doesn't show any gameplay, but it was almost midnight, so oh well...).

    I assume that means there will be a post.

    Is the demo Steam only?

    I made one yesterday, the one you quoted above. It says the demo will be released tomorrow. I assume that most people will be able to figure out that tomorrow is today!

    For now. Meaning we were focused on the mechanics and balance and didn't have time to worry about anything else. Now we're bracing for impact. Testing the demo with 50 people is one thing, a few thousand people playing it is another. When the dust settles we'll worry about marketing.

    Downloading. I am on 90 hours week but I am WFH due to Corona chan anyway so might as well take 1-hour break to try this up.

    Considering this is VD game and combat-focused it means that those 2 characters will be a complete cripple with a face even mother can't love, have one and a half legs, is lobotomized, but if I just put the rest of the points into gun-related status and skills and I should be fine right?

    What 2 people? You can have a 4-people party. I wanted to take a screen with all 4 but the fuckers kept dying on me.

    Overall, it's much harder to minmax this thing than AoD. You need CHA to have more party members, you need INT to have more tagged skills, you need CON to last a turn longer, etc.

    You should try to see if GOG will agree to carry the demo. They do that sometimes.

    I assume the next two weeks will be hectic - processing feedback, fixing issues, adding some missing assets (mainly hair styles and beards - you can't be an adventurer without a manly beard or at least a dastardly moustache), extra portraits, etc which means frequent build updates. It's much easier and less time consuming to update one build rather than two or three (we had to update 3 builds for AoD: Steam, GOG, and BMT (direct sales) which took awhile).

    The opening dialogue is nice. A bit too partisan to my taste but you clearly make religious zealotry idiocy to be incredibly... zealous that I know which faction I am going to reject in the full game.

    And considering this is the Codex and VD is Codexian of course in the ending the most zealot idiot conservative choice will have the best ending, will it Vault Dweller ? :lol:

    But no, jokes aside, even the opening narratives choice set the mood quite well. As as I said, few of them a bit too partisan for my taste but I guess it sets the mood quite well that the current society is partisan in the ship.

    --- software mouse tied to fps, i have a shit laptop
    - its way to dark by default, had to up brightness and gamma
    - took me a second to recognize the skill tagging square...
    - you ought to display the graze chance numerically with the hit chance otherwise chars with maxed per and dex will see stuff like this

    To get out you left click on the sign, took me about 30 sec to figure out as well, although mine has an exclamation point

    Clicking anywhere on that exit (not just the sign) works fine for me. One tester with an old laptop reported similar issues. Scripts didn't work, he couldn't exit the arena at first, then he kept replaying the same fight, the dead body wasn't removed, etc. Does your laptop meet the engine's requirements?

    I got a dumb question since I don't know if it's a bug or normal. In AoD we were able to switch between weapons at hand right away so how does it work here? Only one hand slot appears to me in the UI and I have to enter the inventory to equip the other weapon to hand and that sort of don't make sense to me.

    Dunno if it's been pointed out already, but steam trailer video still displays TNW as the game's name.
