Great game
« on: May 09, 2009, 06:14:55 AM »
Meh... Here I am, playing games like Fallout 3, Left 4 Dead and COD5. Then here I am, gazing at a white screen with tiny flies everywhere, watching, waiting for hours as I conquer "space". I never thought a RTS could draw me in like this.

This game shows too much content for an alpha release. Seriously. I played every level at least 3 times and I can't get enough. I always come back to Level 3(attachment) with this circular cluster and that final, giant planet to take over.

This is a game I'll buy for sure. I saw this game in Steam's Coming Soon tab, followed the link to the website, downloaded it and fell in love. You guys should post your demo in Steam. It sure would draw more attention to this community.

-Suggestions-

- Add color contrast, a black background or color select. After playing long hours in a dark room, when I close my eyes, I can still see the Dyson planet with flies moving around them! Hallucinations or eye rape?

- An option to rally all your flies on 1 or multiple planets. That would be awesome.

- An option to see which kind of tree is on your planet on your menu.

- An options to be able to destroy a tree and replace it with another.

- Why not make more use of the Defense Tree? Make them spawn Defense flies that can act as kamikaze by sending them on another planet. Could be nice for tenderizing big enemy defenses. These flies, however, can't be used to plant a Dyson tree and their spawn time is much slower than normal flies. How about it?

- More levels, of course. :D


Keep up the good work guys. July 31 is too far away!

I agree, and would everyone playing this game, that this game is awesome. I think it was pretty obvious.

Now to the suggestion.
 
1) This, I really won't mind. They might do that to the version they are gonna sell. If not, they should implant it.

2) This would make everything easier. Support.

3) I really like taking out a defense tree and placing an attack tree instead. Support.

4)Nan. The defense are actually really imbalance. If you could send them to a planet.... The game will be too easy. No support.

5) More levels? I'm pretty sure they are going to release more level in a few next version. Now, you could make some custom level instead.

http://www.dyson-game.com/smf/index.php?topic=22.0 Go in this thread. It should teach you how to make custom level.

On the Defense Tree, like I said, the spawn time for the said Defense flies would be very slow. Gathering an army could be hard and would add more strategy. I know it's all big talk but I'm sure it could be possible.

Thanks for the thread link. I'll try to get into it...

Thanks Vagrant! It's greatly encouraging to read posts like this.

Colour contrast might be interesting - plenty of people have asked for it. I will see if inverting the colours is something that is easily done.

Defense trees will become a bit more interesting hopefully. Watch this space :)

I think it's nice to see people asking for things that we are already hoping to fix. You should find a couple more of your suggestions are al least partly taken care of in the final game.

Even if it's production is slower, it will still be too strong. Or maybe we could put it so that defense seed can be attacked, and 1 hit will kill it and make it explode.

Just a simple suggestion.
