Thanks for sharing! You didn't say what these were, and since I already have all of them, the keys should still be available, unless someone else snagged them: Punch Club, The Final Station, and Party Hard.

Looks very promising. Reminds me of the game "Never Alone" in a sci-fi setting.

I'd be interested for Streets of Rogue and Graveyard Keeper, but on the other hand I have enough games on my plate right now so it'd be a long time before I got around to either. So in the near term, better not to.

Yeah you'd think they do a mix of international sports arena's.

Anyway this game is too expensive with all the DLC, yeah base game goes on a nice sale then you have over a $100 worth of DLC to get for the complete package.. ekk.

Dungeons 3 - Famous Last Words, the real "final" DLC is out today and a new free map for everyone

Anyone tried the co-op mode on this? I'm trying to picture how that works and failing....

SalvatosI'm kind of sad this isn't full 3D as it would make a gorgeous environment to explore. Worth a look at release anyway. That music is beautifully haunting and they seem to have a solid theme.

I was thinking just the other day actually that sometimes giving the user less freedom to explore visuals can lead to a better experience, because the artist can make certain assumptions about how something will be viewed. So I'm thinking that maybe if it was a full 3D environment, it might not look as nice. Or at least might be much more difficult for the developers!

I'll have to keep an eye out for this. Sadly, because of others, I don't do kickstarter; I'll wait until it's released or has a GNU/Linux demo of some sort before I hand over money.

This spoils it for me.

Looks fun. Yeah GOG is 90% off right now, but everyone else is normal at $11.99 which is still a good price.

Looks interesting.
May consider getting it on release.

Whelp, you're right. I can only imagine what happened there, really odd. Must have been a mess-up with the final audio file used, possibly used the pre-LUFS adjusted one. Ooops. Will aim to improve for next time, apologies.

I'm really liking the look of this. Definitely going on the wishlist.

dpanterAlways good content in a nice small package. What is going on with the audio though? Very low volume this time and strange compression artifacts. Like you are pushing too strong mic pop filtering + compression or something.
On the video and the ogg/mp3 or just one of them?

Could you give me any timestamps? I've gone over with both speakers and headphones and to me, they all sound really clear so I'm a little confused

If you play ep 12, then 13 at the same audio level you should really hear the difference.

It's not the biggest issue in the world but it was just so noticeable compared to other YT videos I watch.
The MP3 files are the same btw.

Tank Maniacs looks like some seriously good local multiplayer fun, coming to Linux soon

Reminds me of Scorched Tanks for the Amiga. That had some ridiculous weapons too.

Looks cool. Though I'm almost disappointed to see monsters towards the end of the trailer. I was all hyped up for a proper hard-boiled noir detective story and the horror elements seem a bit unnecessary.

Looks like Worms... in real time. Could be a lot of fun for a sofa set up!

Their first campaign was unsuccessful, resulting in that I actually backed the game twice. I'm very excited of seeing it closer to being released. The game looked great back then and has only improved since.

Fantastic voice acting! That's money well spend indeed.

Youtube. You can hear a good example right in the first words, "Welcome to the..."

I often think of Marques Brownlee vids as reference points for excellent volume levels.

A 2D pixel art game in Unreal Engine. I don't think I've seen that combination before.

Cache Grab Studios may not have been the best company name for a crowdfunding campaign.

It would be nice if this game got good, because then I wouldn't have to think about SSB on the Switch I don't have yet.

Ooookay, I'm buying this. I just absolutely love simple arcade style games.

liamdaweOh don't worry, it's not too much trouble. Just wanting to know how much interest there is, as it usually has very little in the way of comments

You must be doing something right then ;)

But yeah, I agree with dpanter, the volume was a bit low this time.
