Hey folks, I really want to talk to you about how difficult this game is!
So, balancing a game like this is pretty important, and I'm the person responsible for that bit. Getting this stuff right is difficult, so I'd really welcome your input! Is something particular to hard? Did something feel unfair? Do you waltz through the game with no difficulty? I want to know!
A note on where I'm coming from balance wise. I want this to be a game that you have to work to get better at. A game that remains interesting (challenging), even for reasonably experienced players. Converse to that, I want the game to feel 'fair'; when you die I want there to have been a better way you could have played to survive it.
What I'd most like to hear about are:
- Recurrent problems i.e. "this monster always kills me!"
- Bad seeds i.e. "I played seed 51251555, but I'm pretty sure it's impossible"
- Feelings about the ebb and flow of the game in general "Getting to World 3 more or less guarantees I'll win the game"
