In the News

Every Colonist has heard the tales of The Pit. Some say it doesn't exist. Some say it does. All agree only a fool would go looking for it.

Lots of cool new stuff there. :) I'm pretty interested to take the Tarka Ranger for a spin. But the following quote made me laugh maniacally:
Press Release wrote:* 2 New Play Modes, “Infinite” Mode and “Seriously?” Mode — a Level of Difficulty Beyond Insane
* Expanded Meta-Game aspects, including the Ability to “Bank” XP and spare items during one session and start the next run of the game on a deeper level, with your “Banked” starting equipment.

I still haven't completed the game on normal and my only run on insane was... well... insane. I can't wrap my head around a difficulty beyond insane. :shock:

For a guy who had to google "roguelike" he certainly enjoyed himself! :thumbsup:

What does that mean? The closest I can get to trying to understand it is that it is sortof like you can save your progress partway through a run (maybe losing, from the current run, whatever you save) and then pick up the stuff you saved at the point you saved it for another run... :huh2:

I understood it that the person wishes to be able to guarantee a "win" off the backs of multiple defeats. Not right or wrong, just an opinion. Really most gamers don't enjoy losing especially most if not all the time, so its no wonder that some people want the "victory payoff" for the hours of gameplay. However I think this issue is really solved by easy mode.

Seems kind of pointless really, if you're not good/experienced enough then all the flashy toys in the game aren't going to keep you alive.
Buy my book - Six Seconds of Moonlight on the kindle store.

Anyone can be a god beneath the moonlight, but who can be a hero?
