I liked Caster. The mechanics with the high speed and jumping was cool and I like the look and sound. With the exception of certain tribes2 mods and the RPG crossfire, I haven't gotten too much into online games. It probably because most of my friends don't play video games and I just haven't enjoyed most of crowds I've found so far.

I've been worried that there would not be much more of Caster however. I got the impression that Elecorn was selling to for too little and promising too much with the all future episode being free. Seemed like he had committed to a lot of work for not much money. I would have been happy if he'd have charged $5 per-episode or charge more and just deliver a little more often. I'd suggest he change the business model but some jerk would probably raise a stink.

Also another fun part of Caster was improving your skills. It's just too easy to max out after a single episode. It is cool to be maxed out by the end of an episode, but then there's no where to go with the next episode. It might be nice if there were more ways to improve the character in each episode. Maybe adding new abilities. But that would be difficult to keep interesting.

All the same, I would be glad to see a new episode and I don't think online play would be a bad thing these days. It would be cool to see a bunch of Casters zipping around. A high speed Caster capture the flag could be very cool.

Linux can never have too many multiplayer games. I never tried caster, but this might be the little extra something that gets me interested in it.

Quoting: "Brandon Smith, post: 2123"Linux can never have too many multiplayer games.

Well, some regarding multiplayer shooters some people might disagree. :rolleyes:
