  1. Well, not swim. But more like run and stand on water. So now Woodie can become Goose Jesus. Jesus Goose? Goosus? Jesuoose?
  2. Why Epic Store is good for the game

    Well if Klei wants 88% of my 0 dollars, then thats fine. I refuse to use a half done product that doesn't even have a shopping cart. Capitalism is about different suppliers providing the best work for the best competing price. Epic game Store has no competition here, its just poaching games to force people to go to one place.
  3. Why Epic Store is good for the game

    Guess the signs were all there to begin with. Tencent holding Roseate skins hostage for a year was it? Now Epic is holding Griftlands for a year from us.
  4. very cool new game

    Like I said, I have nothing against Klei or their game. I'm certain that it would be a remarkable game and enjoyable to play if I took the time. But the fact it's on the Epic Game Store is the ONLY reason why I refuse to purchase this game. Enjoy the game all you want, I'm afraid that I will not participate in the alpha process until it is on steam proper.

    There's nothing to complain about the game itself. Even if I am a bit confused by the game shift from traditional rpg to card based, I trust Klei to deliver a quality product. I just don't want to support a storefront run by Epic with all their dubious, questionable, and anti-consumer actions. Which means I will not support this game until its available at a different place.
  6. Why Epic Store is good for the game

    Well we can't get an exact amount that Klei was given, but we can infer from epic's attempt to buy distribution rights for the latest Samurai Shodown game. https://sparkchronicles.com/samurai-shodown-epic-games-store-wanted-exclusivity-but-snks-ceo-declined/ If Epic is willing to pay enough to cover hundreds of thousands of copies of Samurai Shodown, it can be implied Klei probably got a similar offer. Even if it was a smaller offer, being offered enough money that can cover thousands upon thousands of copies is a very influencing thing to give distribution rights.
  7. Griftlands Alpha Launch

    I am on the sameboat here. I still love you guys and gals at Klei, but this is a real boneheaded decision to work with a company that is so anti-consumer. I mean at the end of the day a company needs profit to survive, especially an indie developer, but after seeing this company managing to self-publish their past few games as successes, it feels like a betrayal of consumer trust to stick this as an epic exclusive first. So I do hope that this game is a success, but I fear I will not in good conscience buy this game while its only exclusive on the Epic game store.
  8. Well, if it's true when Epic tried getting Samurai Shodown Epic exclusive Epic offered to cover enough costs for at least 100,000 copies. So I imagine it probably was plenty of money.
  9. very cool new game

    Well guess that 18% cut can't afford Epic Games a shopping cart.
  10. An Epic store exclusive is antithesis to what makes Klei great: Getting player feedback to make a better game. The fact that an exclusive greatly diminishes how many players can play and give that important feedback just feels wrong. Feels like going back on this way that makes Klei games great.
  11. Klei rhymes with Play and who plays the games? We do. Please don't forget the actual consumers of the game. Not Epic, but the players. Epic doesn't even rhyme with play.
  12. Guess this'll be like when Tencent held the Roseate skins hostage for about a year before it was brought to DST proper. Its unfortunate to see another thing like this happening again.
  13. Gorge Recipes

    I have a similar issue regarding Mac'N'Cheese. I offered it on a silver plate during a cheese craving, and I only got a red mark instead.
