Read William Gibson's Archangel comic series last night (it's short, 5 issues), thoroughly enjoyed it.

Gardens of the Moon was a slog, completely understand people who gave up midway through that book.

And I particularly hated Anomander Rake, he's as bad as Drizzt, for the same reason - feels like a teenager's first DnD character, an angsty, edgy "dark" badass with a cool magic sword. Bleaugh.

BUT.

Deadhouse Gates was a joy, particularly the second half. And from that point, the series is great. (Rake continues to annoy me every time he appears in later books, though thankfully that is only intermittently. You can go whole books without him).

Thank you!

Hey hey, ITS!

Has it been a year already? How time flies when you build a house and have a baby. Wink

Anyway, I've just dropped some new DLC for System Crash - Underworld.



Blurb:

"Underworld introduces an exciting new story campaign and a powerful new card set focused on turning your Archive (discard pile) into a potent resource.

From Agents and Support cards that gain strength the more you discard, to Events that let you bring cards from your Archive back into play, Underworld adds a range of exciting new options to deck building.

The Underworld set is powered by a unique risk-reward dynamic. Underworld cards can generate huge burst damage, but you'll need to burn your own deck to fuel your combos. Played well, you can sweep your opposition off the board. Played poorly, you burn down your own deck and leave yourself weakened and exposed.

Features:

- An exciting new story campaign.

- 30 New missions.

- 20 New cards to collect.

- New card mechanics that allow you to burn your own deck for power."







I hope you check it out! It's pretty cool, I think. Smile

"Colony Ship" just sounds very dry and utilitarian to me, dull.

Like sure, it tells you what the game is about. But the other names make me want to find out what the game is about. They intrigue me.

It's the difference between calling your game "No Man's Sky" or just "Spaceship Pilot".

"No Home But the Stars" as first choice, "Pilgrims of the Void" as second. Both are great, evocative titles that sound like classic sci-fi novels.

Thought you folks might like to check this out, if you haven't seen it already. A PA adventure game set in sub-Saharan Africa.

It's an adventure game, not an RPG, but the devs just showed off the combat in the game and it looks interesting. It's certainly pretty.

Sounds good guys.

Also, Starlord confirmed in The New World. Wink

Holy moley, that's looking good.

Been binging Birthright, a comic about a kid who goes missing, whose disappearance tears his family apart, and then a year later a man dressed like an extra from a Conan movie appears claiming that he was that kid, that he stumbled through a gateway to a magical world where he became the Chosen One, the hero destined to defeat the Dark Lord.

That's the setup, and then it gets twistier from there. It's fundamentally a story about this family and their relationship against the backdrop of this hellova cool fantasy setup that deftly plays with the tropes.

Definitely recommend it.

Very interesting.

About sequels not making as much as the original game - it may be (in part) because they were released later and steam sales seem to be worse across the board (unless you're a viral hit like PUBG). Which may be related to the increasing glut of games being released on Steam.

But yeah, even in the best of times, I suspect that a new game is more exciting than a known quality like a sequel or an expansion, regardless, and thus has more potential sales.

I know that, for System Crash, I hesitate on making sequels/expansions because, even though I'd love to grow the game further, the base game is not yet profitable, and as you say, an expansion would probably only achieve 30% of the sales figures. But I'm resolved to make one expansion just to get the data point. Maybe I'm wrong and it will be a worthwhile venture.

Making some great progress there. And loving the screenshots, that's a rather substantial improvement in the graphics department, relative to AoD. Nice work dudes. Wink

If you got it via Humble, there'll be a redeemable steam key in your library. Smile

Hey folks, long time no chat.

Got a quick request, for anyone who enjoyed System Crash and feels like helping a brother out.  Wink

Turns out those user tags are super helpful for Steam discoverability. If you've got the time, going and clicking that little plus next to the user tags and ticking whatever tags you feel appropriate would be very helpful.

And if you've got time for a user review, that's also really helpful.

Help me work the algorithms, chaps. Wink
