      Hey Chris,
      I bookmarked Wildman for later, but your sincere attitude and the respect you displayed for both your staff and kickstarters prompt me to contribute now.
      Make it happens

      British: "no problem with the game (any game, actually) being on any Steam derivative, as long as it's not limited to it." - FULL ACK

      GPG: Welcome back to the liberated gaming world.

    6. British on

      @Sascha Hubert: same old "me" stuff...
      *You* consider it fine, and *I* consider anything related to Steam as evil.
      Even though in my book: "no Steam = full win", I have no problem with the game (any game, actually) being on any Steam derivative, as long as it's not limited to it.

      TL;DR: Yay @ no DRM.

      Regarding "Wildman in the news", I first heard about it on Massively ( http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/01/14/gas-powered-games-announces-wildman/ ).

    7. Gerard Braad on

      @Andreas I agree it is not the 'biggest problem' and was a wrong word choice (lack of edit, else I would have removed it). And yes, gameplay is VERY important for a game. From a technical point-of-view, the move to OpenGL is already a good one and seems they have considered a possible move to supporting OSX, Linux or any other platform. Although, they have not chosen an COTS solution. This can be a blessing and a curse; you will not be hindered by limitations off the engine, but you will have to write everything from scratch. You will not get platform support from the engine producer, but will allow custom-made/tailored solutions to support the target platforms as best as possible. I just do not agree with @GPG's own point-of-view of "the primary reason we’ve been hesitant to show gameplay". This is ACTUALLY what we want to see... and we can judge about. If we think the gameplay mechanics are and how it would work, or where it could use some alteration in an early stage.. isn't this what you want our opinion on? People who pledge just need to be aware you are not dealing with a finished product. You don't buy a product, but you pledge to make something possible. So, Chris... please...

      Offline co-op mode would be awesome . . . I'd really like to see this happen.

      Steam Greenlight is fine, and i wouldnt consider it DRM.
      Its cheap, and you reach a very huge audience.

      Speaking as someone with a bit of game development experience, porting from D3D is not your biggest risk usually. The biggest risk is having a game that's boring as hell at the end.
      With technical problems, you can throw better programmers at it to fix it (delaying the release of course), but if you took a wrong turn in your game design at an early point (where you might not even have been able to try it out), you can scrap the whole project and start over again.

    11. Gerard Braad on

      "We are not using a commercial engine like Unity, so each additional OS adds requires additional development and testing to our project. ", "the primary reason we’ve been hesitant to show gameplay"

      Well, isn't this your biggest risk and therefore exactly the foremost reason to actually show what you have? And show where the money has to go... and maybe even why the project could get delayed (let's say; QA hell, etc).

    12. Blood Dragon on

      Great update, GPG! I am even more excited about this game now!

    13. Shane Schrupp on

      Thanks for the update! I totally agree that having a very solid single-player game can then be turned into a fun co-op game. Since I'm getting 3 keys I'm really hoping the 3 of us can play together from the start. ;)

    14. Quentin Westcott on

      Excellent! GO EAST SIDE!

    15. Psygnosis on

      Co-Op will be great in this game ! But i think also a more Competitive Multiplayer game mode introduced after the release and the co-op, will be nice to see it too ! Like 1 vs 1 or 2 vs 2 !

      The War Zones are made for PvP right ? And there you can do all this stuff ?

      " You support your troops with your own combat abilities and skills. You shape-shift into new forms that grant you new abilities. You upgrade your armies with new technology. You construct defenses. Your opponent switches tactics; you reconfigure your army to counter. "

      " You push the enemy back to their citadel, their home base. You face your opponent’s champion. You each rally your troops for support. You execute your special abilities with precision. Your opponent is devastated "

      I know it's reeeeally early to ask this, but it's only an idea =)

    16. Gas Powered Games Creator on

      The way Steam works, you can give them a list of existing keys that can be validated on the service.

      So, in theory, people who receive keys from us can add them in Steam at some later date and have a "Steam version."

    17. Roq on

      In the initial pitch it says: "Wildman is exciting because it’s something new...". But so far I don't think you guys have explained what that something new consists of - at first sight it sounds somewhat similar to Spellforce 1&2, not that that is necessarily too bad a thing. But, I don't think this update makes it at all clear just what the vision is for Wildman. That is, I think, the thrust of what people are asking in the comments section.

      A Steam key for the game would be very nice for the backers,
      but i understand your situation :)

      anyway thanks for your efforts!

      I hope to see the game in GOG in the future. And about the gameplay, is very interesting to show it even in barebone state. to help backers see how the game works.

    20. Johannes Huber on

      Sounds really, really good!
      I hope that we reach that linux stretch goal!!

      Sometimes multiplayer DRM can be a good thing keeping cheaters at bay.
      But it depends on multiplayer design aslo.

    22. Inquisitioner on

      So happy to her about co-op. Thats the most essential part of the gameplay in my opinon.

    23. James Baker on

      GPG - You guys rock. Follow up question for the potential co-op. Is it something that you will be working on (as in dedicating a little bit of resource to) during the course of the overall development? I guess what I'm getting at (which is amazing to do for me in less than three sentences), how soon after initial release can we expect the online co-op? Or will it be a stretch goal to allow it to be implemented before, and ultimately with the retail release?

    24. Gas Powered Games Creator on

      As others have noted, no DRM and Steam are two different questions. If we partner with other digital distribution platforms, we will use whatever DRM systems they use. Anyone contributing to the Kickstarter will receive the version we'll be selling directly, which has no DRM. (This was going to be in the update, but it sort of muddied the waters a bit, since we've not committed to any other digital platforms, since we can't until we're actually finished and they've approved our game.)

    25. Andrew Easter - on

      @ Teal - Steam would probably be a secondary distribution option after they have set up a DRM version.

      Most Kickstarters will do a DRM free version and a steam version.

    26. Akryum on

      Nice update! I don't care if the rendered images are ugly, just share them if you want to. But I'll not be sad if we have to wait. :p Keep up the good work! Cheers from France

    27. Chris Brind on

      @Teal Steam + DRM-free are not mutually exclusive - check out all those Humble Bundles, for instance.

    28. Chris Brind on

      Good attitude towards cross-platform approach. Mac is my platform, so I'm hoping you make it. Thank Trent Oster for my pledge. :)

      No DRM? Does this mean Steam is out of the picture then? (Since Steam is basically a DRM, just a tolerable one!)
