Unbelievable.

When I asked for this asked I suggested to Karlos that if he sat down with his family, this might make a really cool preview.

What the actual fuck. Literally. Was it some kind of joke?

I'm afraid not. They are presenting at as a legit thing.

Usual price is £8

I REALLY want to make this video available publicly. I feel like it's a serious breach of trust to try and sell something like this to people.

//edit

Huh. The video has one 'dislike' on it. That must have come from one of you guys, since the video is unlisted. Fuck me for making a quick video in order to illustrate problems in a broken and unsuitable game. Maybe I should have just given it a free fucking pass because it's on early access.

Seriously pissed now.

lol I never disliked.

This made me laugh from the publisher....

Quote:
This is an Early Access game and was developed by Iron Games Studios in Republic of Kazakhstan. To the best of our knowledge, they are the first ever development studio in Kazakhstan to have released a commercial title.


Made by Borat!!

They game is available for anyone to buy, I don't see why you can't make it public? It's not a pre-release code or anything like that. Is this an issue because someone has supplied us with a code?

For the troll lol I'd like to say I added the dislike, but it was there before I saw it. I'll add a thumbs up to nullify it.

Something murky is going on here.

It seems that this game has been taken down from Steam Greenlight. There is some noise to the effect that it was made by the same person who made 'Air Control', a fairly notoriously bullshit title on Steam. I can't find any evidence for this besides a weird video and some message board posts.

thanks bwortang!

If you're going to take any positives from this I'd say it's probably your longest one life play videos..

I've e-mailed the publisher, I'm interested to see what they have to say.

Quote:
Hello again David.

I'm really sorry, whilst we're grateful for the code, I'm not going to be able to put this game on our site.

I gave it to one of our writers and he's just sent me a video of his findings. Whilst I always give directions with early access games for our writers, telling them to look past any glitches and the likes and try and see the potential, with this game that's quite hard. It's very shoddy.

Beyond that though there are other issues. It uses seemingly unlicensed music. Again, that might be the case in the final release, but this game is on sale on Steam.

But the worst of all was the writer is a family man. When I saw this game I thought it would make a lovely piece if he sat down with his young children and gave the preview piece from their perspective as well as his own. But the holding screens whilst loading contain the lovely message "Fuck This World".

Very sorry, but we can't put our sites name to this game and I'm sure you will understand why.

All the best,

Lee Rand.


The irony is, these are the guys that kind of fired the warning shot to us when we first started (I spoke about it n the podcast). But we have haven't worked with them until now.

The developer is a small indie and what you say about their game can have a big impact on their lives. Just something to think about...


I'm happy for the video to go up, but let's see what they have to say. (They must have bloody looked at it, it's not a PR job, these guys are the publishers and their Logo is all over it.
