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

Well it's more similar "Realm Royale" which is the game that came out a week before they decided to pull the pin on their original release date.

Its got nothing to do with how "realistic" the game is.
Would also like to see a decent BR on Linux, the only reason i brought up the windows games is because that is the market they will be looking at getting the most users from and it is currently getting saturated, the 100 - 200 linux players that will probably get it wont keep the game alive.
And with Fortnight being on switch and being well known it will probably be a hard sell to get people to adopt even though its free.

I'm not even bagging them for trying, I'm just thinking that maybe they would have been better off just releasing the product in its "complete" state before the OMG knee jerk overhaul.

Like Jim Sterling and others have often said everytime there is a trending genre every member of the industry tries to ape it in one way or another and you see everything popping up, from the fairly well done with truly unique ideas and yet still forgetable outsider , to the slap dashed half assed job that is just there to make a quick buck.

I don't know much about the game history I mostly know about it thanks to Liam's recent posts about it soo I'll hold my breath for now and see where it goes , but yeah I dunno I'm smelling a fish with this one and I don't like it .

EhvisI was able to create a config that changed the basic controls (movement, fire, use), but haven't found the right names for the rest.

Any chance you figured out how to invert the mouse? Because I couldn't find it in-game or in any other INI file. I can't play unless I have that option.

I imagine you can flip the signs of the scale factor. You're still left with an incomplete set of controls buttons though. Unfortunately it doesn't revert to defaults for those that aren't present in the .ini file.
