Hello! Thank you for creating such an amazing game. I haven't played it yet but I just know I'm gonna love it haha. I just bought it off humble bundle and I have a question... The description says the game is available DRM-free but I assume this is for the full version only? I don't mind playing the early-access stage of the game through steam, but would I have to re-buy the game if I wanted the DRM-free full version of the game?
I just finished playing the demo and what an experience! The inner conflict shown by a deserter was easily seen and empathized with. Simply one of the best dystopian stories I've read and the best I've played as a game to date! I really hope this has at least 10 chapters haha. I wouldn't even mind paying more.
As for issues with the game, there are a few I noticed, but I only started scrutinizing these at Kaliningrad so I may have missed some from the Core etc.:
- Minor issues: Spelling mistakes. The quest page for "The Lost Girl" says that the girl's name is Nina, but according to dialogue, the girl's name is Mila. Next, Ivan's neighbour's mother (lol) says "...He must 'we' waiting..." at her house by the river. When we first meet Leonid, he says "Find 'my' at my place." Lastly, during the final cinematic, the Father General says "Then 'why' are you standing here for?!"
- Medium-Major issues: There are some instances when I choose the correct dialogue and the increased morale symbol shows up above my characters' heads. However, when I checked the values on the menu, the morale percentages remained unchanged. This happened with: Firstly, the talk with Lynn at Ivan's house. Secondly, after the completion of "The Lost Girl" quest, only Adair and Lynn's morale increased (intentional?). Lastly, the quest where I had to get the medicine for the baby in the church.
- Major issue (at least for me): There is no unequip button. There was a jacket I wanted to equip on Rourke, but I accidentally put it on Lynn (don't ask). Lynn had no other alternative armors so all I got was a buzz in response when I pressed on it.
It's nice to see that you guys implemented a sprinting button, but I still think it's a bit slow sorry...
In any case, I just LOVE this game to bits! Congratulations on making it this far, this is my most highly anticipated game this year!
Hi there! Thank you so much for the compliments, that's really nice of you!
We'll be including the fixes to these spelling mistakes/morale bugs in our next update (we are currently working on adding controller support/key remapping, among other things). We definitely want to raise Rourke's base speed and add an actual running animation, so that's on our to-do list.
Once again, thank you so much for taking the time to report these bugs, we hope to have the next update soon!
Hi there! We have a DRM-free version of the current build for our backers, but we highly encourage to get the Steam version since the game is still being developed. We'll add a DRM-free version after the full release.
Since you bought it through Humble Bundle (and the same would apply to everyone who bought it through itchio), we can add the DRM-free version to the package, so you'll be able to get it if you look at your purchases, without any additional cost.
