Hrm, I’m on the demo now :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

My iPad is fairly old so it might just be a problem to do with that, but is anyone else having an issue where the app crashes before you can even get into the game itself?


#4

Yeah it pretty annoying, I hope they can fix it


#5

Demo is very good, will pick it up soon.


#6

Great fun! Very interesting plot. But who were the romances?


#7

Wow, it’s like it’s Christmas, so many games coming out.


#8

So it took me 2 hours to finish this game.

Interesting mechanics, interesting plot.

I got a ‘half and half’ ending, I stuck to my principles but probably didn’t do as well as I could have. Still, this is a very good story and I highly recommend it. :smiley:

EDIT: Yet again, I find myself wishing for a save/re-choose feature, so I can meta-game my game after my initial playthrough, particularly to see what different options are there. Alas.

First bug report on this thread (spoilered because it’s endgame)…

[spoiler]You’ve also aided Anaru Katariki, who firmly opposes the Surgeons’ plans.

Except I didn’t. I told both the Surgeons and Maswifi to go fuck themselves.

And in another endgame, I ordered my research team to stabilize the portal and welcome the Surgeons, and the game acted like I was the Surgeons’ enemy and Katariki’s ally when I arrived beyond the portal.[/spoiler]

Indeed, too many games, not enough money :cry:


#11

Send me an email that I can forward to the author. Preferably with more details.


#12

Now THAT is a cliffhanger to end a demo on.


#13

Yay, I really liked Orpheus Ruse, it’s one of my favs. (Goes off to check out the new game).


#14

This was great, and not just saying that because I did well!

Going from what I learnt from Orpheus I went at ruthless as I could while siding against the aliens.. And it worked out, I like how there’s a lot of shades of gray, you’re not just kicking dogs. And the people from ORPHEUS turned up! Was not expecting that, but can totally buy they’re from the same universe..

I thought Robyn was a good LI too, not too overdone, but nice. Appreciate that they were specifically bi, not just player-sexual.


#15

Does anyone know how many there are/ who are the love interests in the game? I can’t get certain ppl to respond


#16

The description blurb itself states 3 romances. I know one of them is Robyn


#17

Directed to steam again. Blah. I would greatly prefer if I could buy these things the way we used to be able to, on the website. Or, otherwise, if the source code were packaged with it when you bought them on steam - I always like to pore over it after the first playthrough or two, and I’d rather not have to email anyone to do so.


#18

Jon-Tarr? And ty (>©<)


#19

I think the love interests are the security guard, the other CEO, and Robyn. IDK though, I haven’t bought the game yet.
(I wanted Jon-Tarr too)


#20

Just finished my first playthrough, I like this game. It’s cool to be able to choose the destiny of the company (and more).

At the end not a bad ending, the Surgeons are contained in Seattle and I move my office.
