    I see, now they change the demo instead of the art.

    That's not mechajammer but looks like a game with the title mechajammer.



    The gifs are cropped image of the screen and blown up to show pixel details, probably.



    An updated Mechajammer demo will be part of Steam Next Fest from October 1st to 7th.

    They've made it so when you mouse-click to move, it moves you all the way to where you clicked, even through a bunch of enemy bullets. This was fixed in some recent iteration by making mouse-click movement only move you one space while in turn-based mode. Was also way better when they had keyboard-based movement controls (though they were sort of shitty tbh, because most iterations could only move in the cardinal directions). I died in the demo only when I clicked to move and would walk through a bunch of bullets. Rather frustrating. Bad design.

    Stealth is in real-time, which is annoying. As I've said before, would be better for players to be able to toggle turn-based mode whenever they want. Or, better, always have the game in turn-based mode.

    Combat is overall worse than it was like a year and a half or so ago. Feels clunkier and less tactical.

    It's like the devs simultaneously want to make a game that appeals to everyone, casuals included, as well as to the hardcore RPG players who like classic games. But they can't do both if they want to produce a good game (I'd also say that no one can make a game with broad lowest-common-denominator appeal and produce a good game, but that's just my opinion).

    Every few months I check this game for progress and every single time I wish I hadn't.

    I gave the new demo a spin so here are my thoughts for any worth


    The game needs:

    • a WASD key controls for movement (after this demo I played Death Trash demo and that game has a well made WASD movement control)
    • some quirky fun weapon descriptions a la Jagged Alliance 2
      Show Spoiler
    • the ability to close any UI screen by pressing Esc key and hopping to any UI screen by just pressing its correspondent key shortcut
    • option to activate and see the follower group number/name above its head
    • vehicles to have some inertia after exiting them while in motion
    • option for automatic gun reloading
    • accessing inventory and equipping weapon during combat should cost time units
    • the ability that player character can shoot itself with the current equipped gun (I don't know if there is another game out there where the player can suicide the avatar :) )
    Also while using vehicles and baking up while also making a turn, the back of the vehicle follows the wrong curve trajectory.

    I've also encountered a bug where the weapon was not reloading with the ammunition looted from storage after death.
    I could not complete the demo and kill the last enemies in the last section of the tutorial because I had no ammunition.
    I equipped the followers with guns and ammunition but they did not use the guns but engaged in melee.
    Followers remain dead after respawning

    At which stage of completion is this game really? It's been in this twitter gif stage forever and? Is there a game or just some combat engine or whatever?
