Day Twenty Three: Mirrors

Posted by Nicolas (permalink)

Yesterday, I began to notify every mirror owner that the release was approaching and I collected all the informations I need to build our mirror list. Right now, we have at least twenty mirrors available around the world, and this number is still growing. That should do the trick!

We're also awaiting the preview of ModDB.com, Ryan Anderson (Executive Editor) was testing the game a few hours ago, I hope he liked what he saw. I think his preview should go live in a few hours. We'll see...

On a totally different subject, I finally had a little time to test two of the mods that are showcased on Steam since a few days. Marc and me played Synergy and D.I.P.R.I.P. I must say that our playtest of Synergy was somewhat crappy. I don't know what they did with this mod, but when it didn't crashed, it was just pointless because the custom maps are really bland. We'll give it another try later on.

Anyway, D.I.P.R.I.P. is REALLY good. At first Marc and I thought that was not for us, but this is definitely a must-have. The feeling is good, the gameplay is nervous and efficient, an honorable successor to the good old Vigilante 8. All it needs now is a special attack for each vehicle. Try it!

What do you mean when you say that Synergy doesn't support the episodes? Because the version that was out before it synced with steam could play all of the episodes and there were even maps built specifically for Synergy.

I tested DIPRIP about 6 months ago and it was pretty fun. Simple, efficient and moreover utterly fun.

Try Zombie Panic Source or Age of Chivalry.

Both are quite good.

I'm honestly confused. The fact that you've changed your "download the game" page must be good, but...

What does
"Stay tuned for the release, somewhere around october 10th, or is it?"
mean? Do you plan on excreting it a few hours early maybe? lol. Unlikely, but at first, that wording had me worried. Orisitisms are scary.

Have you tried the "Trials" maps yet that come with Synergy? They are pretty entertaining and a good challenge, I like them the most.
