If so, I hope Mario doesn't have to save Peach again. If he managed to lose her up until his old age....

On the other hand, this could be a good idea for a realistic platformer. Mario can only jump three pixels high. Luigi needs a crutch.

So until some time on Tuesday, Machinarium is on sale for 7 USD on PSN for Playstation Plus members (of which I am one) and I wanted to know if there were any issues that would mean I shouldn't get it on there (aside from the obvious part where I could probably get it for nearly free off an HIB sale).

Things like being a bad port or having control issues or the developers losing a significant chunk of potential money if I buy it there instead of online.

so, guys, is the game "towns" good if you're generally partial to city builders? from what im gathering its kinda similar to dwarf fortress i guess?

It's somewhere between Majesty and Dwarf Fortress. It's also quite a bit unfinished, with pretty bad balance issues and a fairly bad UI.

Might not be a bad thing in terms of health concerns... But that sucks for people who like Twinkies

thanks!

i'm a bit cautious with df-likes because i just wasted 10 euros on "a game of dwarves" lol. also, if the game really is unfinished, putting it on steam and not mentioning that anywhere (that i saw) is pretty bad form.

Unfortunately that hasn't stopped dozens, if not hundreds of games on greenlight.

There's nothing wrong with putting an unfinished game up on Greenlight. It's when they get on Steam proper and are still clearly unfinished that there's a problem.

Like this hasn't already happened, even without Greenlight.

I strongly disagree.

First impressions are everything, especially in videogames. Despite claiming that your game is in alpha or whatever, people are going to make judgement calls and assumptions on what they see, no matter what.

This isn't to say that showing off the development of your game is a bad thing, in fact it can be a valuable marketing tool (see: overgrowth). The critical mistake that a lot of people make is showing off their game when it is ugly, uninteresting, and a pain to look at. When you show off a game like that, no matter what you say to people about how early in development it is, there will be judgements cast on the game that may bite you in the ass down the road.

Kind of neat tech, I like this demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20ItGiprBM8&list=PL2D3BB92E1551C8AD&feature=plcp

Also, I just went to six different stores looking for Twinkies, everyone is out, the product will probably disappear entirely pretty soon. So I hope John doesn't completely flip shit.
