    I doubt Pierre is going to redesign any of the encounters at this point. I think the only thing to do is hope his next module is less bullshit.

    There's a shitload of customizable difficulty settings.
    Or you can wait a couple of weeks, Pierre is working on some difficulty settings which will decrease opponents level.
    And maybe more, i didn't get any news since i gave him the link to Roxor's review... :rage:

    Edit : Fake news, he's working on the sprites.

    Good thing he didn't get involved with GME. He'd have blown his brains out.

    Yeah when I first saw the video and title, I assumed he bought GME at $300 and lost all his Kickstarter money.

    Pierre’s a kool aid drinking classical liberal (look up what “liberal” actually means if you live in the us) and if you’re that type you assume that the stock market provides a reasonable assessment of a company or commodity’s true value through the molesting power of invisible hands or whatever. Otherwise a lot of assumptions classical economics take for granted suddenly don’t look so hot. So it must fill him with despair to see companies that have never made a dime and have demonstrated no pathways to ever making a dime rocket up in stock value forever.

    I mean this has never ever been really true, ever, but yes, I guess part of being a classical liberal is deciding to believe that it is possible

    In fact, I guess if you think about it that way it is no surprise that Pierre is shocked

    PIERRE! YOU BASTARD! I CAN PLAY THE FIRST AREA WITHOUT CATASTROPHIC GAME CRASHES! This is most assuredly a win for humanity!


    I like the new changes that he did!

    Where's the cool Mantis sprites though?! How is monk kicking mantis supposed to feel like a mantis if all the sprites are humanoids!

    There is some sprite packs out there, you can find one on the official forums, i don't like them much but you should check them out and Pierre is working on sprites as we speak.

    On one hand, it's good to see that the game is apparently getting better. Who knows, it might even be worth replaying in a year. On the other, the asshat promised a finished product from the get-go and what we got was an early beta at best. Is he even developing the other two modules right now, or is he eating through the funds while the fixing the first?

    The third option: he's neither developing the next modules or fixing the first.

    Yeah, my guess is he is still trying to beat the module for the first time without cheats. Can't fix the final boss fight if you've never seen it.

    What do you think?
    He's a one man team and he didn't release the game publicly yet, do you think he's working on the sequels?

    He's working on the sprites, which will be used for all the modules and of course, he'll be polishing Augury until release and probably beyond.

    So what? You think Augury was rushed and of course, he should rush the other modules even more?

    It was more of a rhetoric question, of course I know he's using the funds to finish Augury, and that's my gripe with it: he promised a finished module, not the half-baked, untested bullshit he delivered, so you'll understand my feeling ripped-off. And this isn't polishing by any means, what he's doing right now is finishing it to the minimum acceptable levels; polishing is something else entirely.

    You can keep defending him as much as you want, but there's a reason why everybody else is pissed.

    I enjoyed my time with Kotc2, albeit in a sadomazochistic and ocd-filled romp.
    I dont regret backing it, but Pierre sure was a lying sack of shit and dishonest about the state of the game at release. Any apologist making up excuses for him about it is straight up delusional.

    I didn't expect anything, most kickstarter don't even deliver a game let alone a completed one and he's going to deliver it and the modules he promised.

    Complaining about kickstarter money is like complaining about all the money you lost in a casino.

    You just sound like children complaining because diner is not served yet...
