Uh let's see those hints first ...
Some fruit flies are genetically resistant to getting drunk — but only if they have an inactive version of a gene scientists have named “happyhour”.

So a sometimes Thursday bundle that starts on...Friday? Never mind, I'll pre-order as usual, I've learned my lesson.

Pre ordering bundles is like pre ordering sex...

You hope it will be great but you know it most likely will not be but you still take the risk as the rationalization behind it is it may be great

The what if is hard to resist for a lot of people...i am not one of them

Devoured Time actually looks decent. But I have been fooled by EA survival games before. Sigh, bought.

3 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

From what I understand, it's actually in alpha, unlike many of the games that claim 'pre-alpha' or 'alpha' (and clearly, blatantly have no idea what they're talking about) and actually are in some stage of beta.

tl;dr version, the game appears to have nearly no features as of yet (as you'd properly expect of an actual alpha title).

Here's hoping not too many people give it negative reviews just because they, as well, don't understand actual development cycles. -.-

P.S. In very brief summary:
Pre-Alpha is the conceptual/prototype stage. There's maybe a single stage demo or a video, meant to attract investors. Alpha is core framework/engine/assets development. Beta is content development.
It's a bad sign, in my opinion, when someone isn't willing to do the bare minimum research/training in their field to understand such basic concepts :P
But, whatever, right?

..except Pre-Alpha. Anyone that claims that makes me want to smack them upside the head for being a total tool. :P
They're right alongside people that mis-use co-op to refer to pvp games that happen to have multiplayer [a confusion that admittedly is furthered by steam games using the 'local co-op' tag to refer to any local multiplayer mode].

Anyway, it's something you'll want to shelve for a while, I imagine, before giving it your attention.

Glad you did the summary and not just the TLDR part. I am new enough to PC gaming that I didn't know what that all means. I wonder if that is the issue with Age of Survival. I tried it a few times and forgot about it. Hopefully one day the dev actually finishes it. Wel, for just over a buck this bundle with that game is worth the risk.

There's plenty enough EA games that get dropped that it's reasonable to be concerned about that- especially with some EA developers appearing to be intentional scammers of a Digital Homicide level.

Flip side, I know of several indie projects that are still worked on a decade or more after their release [ex, Xenimus, which has been around for 15 years now], and games like my beloved Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines which have had continued fan support for a similar breadth of time.

So even if it takes time, it may pay out rather well :)
Games in EA ought be assessed by their progression (or lack thereof) not any static state they're in when you decide to play them.

Someone may not agree that alpha games ought be on Steam, but the whole angry/upset "this game isn't actually a game! how dare they put it on steam!" routine is nonsensical, unless the developers specifically promised you something other than.. well, what alpha/beta actually signify.

Of course, uneducated indie developers regularly misusing the terms certainly doesn't help matters any.

This is accurate, if you want to update your links- Tuesday1 is the first bundle of the series, and Tuesday is the 3rd (Tuesday3 is a dead link).
