Out of curiosity, have you guys thought about having your game featured in something like Humble Bundle or Indie Royale? I figure you'd be able to get it out to more people that way. Also, how has the new Steam Discovery update affected sales?
Sadly I can not play the game since I use Linux and it appears there
will not be a Linux version of the game. :(
Anyway I have the game on humblebundle but the steam key is missing...
Besides that I am glad to have helped out funding the game. :)
Ok i see that you released a patch that has toned down some of the bosses. Now at least it is a bit more playable.
Why are so bosses so much harder than others? I am fighting some guy on a bird and i have died over and over again. Between his wind power sometimes knocking you off the ship, and the ray beams, he needs to be nerfed. I am not sure why you made him so hard but he is ruining the game for me.
I was able to get it to work again by telling bluetooth to disconnect the controller and then reconnect.
I think I spoke too soon. Now the game refuses to recognize that I have a Playstation 3 wireless dual shock controller. It was working for a while but not anymore.
Finally got the game on my Mac. Configured it to work with my Playstation Dual Shock 3 controller so that I can play it like it is meant to be played. One thing i am not sure of is it there is a way to save your progress. This looks like a game that might take several hours from beginning to end and it would be nice to be able to continue where I left off as opposed to start new each time.
Is there a manual for the game? I'd like to know what all the various icons mean, such at the + icons when you've full leaves (flames?) and collector more. And what the petrol-can looking things in level 1 are for, if anything.
Oop, ignore my comments. I figured it out. I had a Retorde plugged in with a MegaDrive controller attached and it was obviously confusing the game. My bad. Sorry 0_o
Just an update on my previous post; the DRM-Free version (Windows) does not recognize my 360 controller either. No input AT ALL is recognized by the game. Keyboard works find but I really wanna play this with a controller.
I'm having issues with the game (Steam version) recognizing my 360 controller. I posted on the Steam forum about it, but is there any other channel we are supposed to, or you'd prefer us to go through for support? In the meantime, I'll try the DRM free version.
Congrats on shipping. This turned out to be a fun little nostalgic romp. I'm quite enjoying it. When so many failed and bad Kickstarters are making the news, it's nice when someone delivers on their promise in a timely fashion, especially when it's the kind of small, unproven team that people tend to be so cautious of.
Hello everyone! Thanks for letting us know about the status of your keys. Apparently some of the keys we sent out before got lost in spam filters and the like. We've messaged each of you and sent them to you.
Just finished my first playthrough and I'm really pleased how the game turned out. Just some notes on a few issues I ran into:
In the bonus stage, it's possible for 1-ups to drop outside the stage and be uncollectable.
Collecting so many extra lives didn't feel very useful in the final stages when I was able to continue from where I got a Game Over. (Though in the end I'm glad I was able to continue from where I did. I think a no continues achievement could help alleviate this problem.)
The final boss's slash attacks can be hard to discern from his other attacks and can make the fight feel overly frustrating when combined with its high damage.
At any rate, awesome job on the game!
Hello how do I claim my key?
Im new here and dont know where to go.
My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Okay, the intro looks good, but why can't I turn down the sound?
There is a music bar, but the sound effects are incredibly loud!
Amazing game, Can't wait to see what more is in store. Plenty of replay value in the mean time :P
Very happy with the game.
What's the status of the Soundtrack release?
Im just glad they removed the "sonicfag" quote on their website.. that was a bit unnecessary. Game is great though.
I haven't gotten my soundtrack or steam key or anything...Wot....
i havent recived my survay nore soundtrack how do i get ether? my email is Sephiroth67z@yahoo.com
Just downloaded the Digital Artbook. Some awesome artwork inside. Already set a couple of pieces up as my wallpapers.
David - We're currently slated for the end of spring, but we'll let you guys know as soon as we have a specific date set in stone. We've got a few things going on behind the scenes planning-wise that have kept us from updating on Kickstarter, but we should have an update pretty soon.
Is the game still set for February? I ask because there's not really much news on the subject of FP's release date, other than "Early 2014" (Steam Greenlight page), "Feb 2014" (Kickstarter page) and TBD (IndieDB page).
Thanks again. Can't wait.
There's a part 2 I made a little bit afterward, I would suggest watching it also, if you have time.
I found me a glitch:
1 Jump Pad
1 Pushable block
When I activated mine, it didn't show in my library at all. It has appeared today, though.
hold on a sec O_o
the game's appeared in my library now
Nicola - Try looking in your account details for something called "Steam Sub" followed by a few numbers. If it's there, or if Steam tells you that you already have the game when you try to re-use the key, then you're all set.
Dear GalaxyTrail / Strife
Many thanks for the Stem key! Just a little question: In the mail you stated that one redeemed, I should see the game in my Steam library as "Not yet released", but, to be honest I cannot see nothing in my library, even if the process of redeeming successfully completed... are we sure that I haven't burnt uselessly my key?
(What I meant by "play this game" was play it earlier.)
Do you think you could add a way to "upgrade" a pledge? (paypal comes to mind)
Because I have more money to throw at my screen now and I really wanna play this game.
Congrats for being greenlighted in Steam!
It's a shame the contest fell through the cracks. Oh well.
Mech boss fight looks pretty epic. Can't wait to play it.
As for changing the Dragon Valley boss, it's ultimately your call what you want to do, but shouldn't the first boss(es) feel weak in comparison to later bosses? This allows players to get a grasp on the controls and learn how to fight tougher enemies. Also, at this stage the main villain doesn't know the protagonist right? Why would he bother to send his top men to some random jungle?
So did you or a supporter win that exporter?
James - Thanks! We've got our fingers crossed.
Hope the new budget works out.
Sooo... what's the design you finally decided on for Spade? :)
I saw the panda variation of spade and I have to say I'm not entirely liking it. Thats not to say it can't be tweaked a bit, but that photo just didn't look right to me... I'm trying to think though, what else could he be turned into... I'll get back to you on that.
I think spade being a panda works, he looks cool as he is now but it does look like one of those "yet another sonic OC" :P So i vote for the panda look, may i suggest trying red panda colors? Red pandas are smaller and fairly cute, their two names are "firefox" and "Wah" If not spade then possible another character or a pallete swap
Guybrush - We are currently at 88%. We're been hovering between 88-90 for about a month now.
By the way, what rank are you at in Steam Greenlight currently?
Nathaniel - We will continue to post updates on Kickstarter, and this will probably be our new "home" base, so to speak.
Probably the wrong time to ask this, after the kickstarter closed, but is there anywhere we can go to get updates?
Congrats on getting funding for your first game!
Congratulations on your MASSIVE success!
YES. IT WAS FUNDED
(though i didnt have any doubt that it would be)
Congrats! Can't wait for this game to come out now. :D
Congrats once again! :3
Looking forward to see how this progresses from here. :3
You raised 12.726% higher than you're goal. Congratulations!
