Fancy getting in on the action? Black Riddles Studio has finally released an update to Crazy Justice [Steam] and we have some keys available. For a little history on it, see my previous article.

The game is currently in a closed beta, while they sort out all the kinks and get it into a properly playable state. The initial release was in pretty poor shape, but they’ve stuck at it. It’s taken them a while, but I’ve confirmed it personally that the Linux version does indeed work better now with plenty of caveats.

Performance still needs to be improved, especially when you’re about to jump from the ship onto the island as the FPS drops quite hard there. Once you jump out and land, it’s mostly okay again. I assume they need to work in a system to reduce view distance and resolution of the island while you're on the ship up high to improve performance (like other games do). They also have an issue with the render distance always on the lowest, so you might find yourself tripping other things as they suddenly appear right next to you. I've been told a hotfix may arrive tomorrow to solve the most pressing issues found.

There’s plenty of rough edges (that's being kind), however, I can finally see some promise in it now I’ve actually been able to jump on in and test it out myself. To be clear though, there's a rather large amount of bugs right now which I will continue to report to the developer.

Warning: Don’t jump into the water when you’re on the lobby island as it counts down to the start, you will die.

Warning #2: Make sure your password is at least 8 characters long. An issue will prevent you logging in if it's less.

They haven’t actually put up a changelog yet, so the exact fixes aren’t clear. Here’s what I know:

  • Fixed black patches everywhere on Linux
  • Fixed massive performance drop on Linux when the storm comes in
  • A new lobby island you start on while waiting for players (previously it started a game within seconds of you entering, so no one could really play together—woops)
  • Steam integration - the first time you login it will link to your Steam account so you don’t need to manually login again

liamdaweA list of things that really need urgently addressing that I found so far:

1) game doesn't end when only one playing is left

Only true when you enter a game with a single person I think. In games with more people it does seem to end as it should.

A big one you didn't mention:

The falling system doesn't allow for much horizontal distance. This means that players can't go to every place on the island.

Edit: Oh yeah, crashes on Vulkan. Backtrace completely consistent.!UnknownFunction(0x106274b)!UnknownFunction(0x107a242)

liamdawe4) a player dropped in front of me, their helicopter backpack never vanished
Heck it didn't vanish for me either (the player in question) and it was still makin' me zippin' around at the heli back pack pace rather than walk. It took you shooting at me and being turned into a goat for me to be able to walk normally

Much thanks for the key! Will have to download next month as I've reached my internet Fair Usage policy cap but have redeemed so in library.

Thanks for the key, it's downlading now.

Does the game still require the manual fix you talked about before to get it to launch. I think it involved moving a file from one folder to another?
