    SteamCharts has some delay when showing concurrent players number. Better check out SteamDB, or better, the official Steam community hub.

    Anyway I'd rather wait a day and check out the peak of launch day.

    People are giving bad reviews because of bad controls and how it feels like an old game. Hardly anything to do with if it is actually a good adventure game or not.

    Yeah steam always has those people "Worst game ever it didn't work with my controller." Always funny with the fluents of the world review a 15 year old videogame and complain that it doesn't work with their steam controller.

    So Kate is thirty.

    :dealwithit:

    I switched to controller after half an hour because keyboard movement is worse than Broken Sword 3.

    Aaaand it flopped.

    It is basically like monkey island 4 and broken sword 4 that is console shittard wannabe. What is so hard about making the character walk where you point your pointer and click?

    Point & click patch is needed, game is gud otherwise.

    Biggest annoyance is actually the Unity fps drops and loading times.

    Bit surprised by that controller thing. On the steam page they are just mentioning partial controller support. Sure, I dont know what that means but to me it sounds like it was created with keyboard/mouse in mind. But with the current download speed I dont think I can test it before the 2nd or 3rd patch comes out anyway :negative:

    Camera and audio glitches when in dialouque mode but I like the game.
    It would be so much better as old school point'n'click.

    According to Steamspy >8,000 sales atm. Not sure whether this means a good or bad launch.

    Also not sure why this game seems p. popular in Russia.

    I think they hugly overestimated their fanbase. Just by adding the 3 they reduced their potential buyer base to almost exclusivly people who played the first 2 games. Not sure if there are still many around and interested in that one. Played now a bit and its really ok so far. Just left the camp. Controls are shit even with a gamepad, constantly bumping in everything. Also not sure why they still insist to solve their puzzles in exactly the way intended. like

    I know I need to get the stamp, I have the print and I am fairly certain that the craftsman will get me one. But before I can ask him I need to get the unstamped document. Minor issue, still I dont understand the logic behind that.

    Isnt it too early for steamspy numbers? I think the first more or less reliable numbers are out 1 week after lunch. But 151 reviews also dont seem like an aweful lot.

    I think I am now about 1/3 through. Leaving Valsembor. I can see why that might be unplayable with keyboard/mouse. The camera angles were certainly a trademark feature of the first 2 games, but here they pushed it a bit too far. Or at least its not really compatible for non-point'n'click gameplay. So far its much closer to the original syberias than I expected. Sure, too many sadly unskippable cut scenes (especially annoying without manual saving system) but you are still fixing stamp machines, placing some cogwheels, filling up the coal storage for your journey. Whenever you get a new task you more or less already know how to solve it and where to go. so nothing challanging in here, pretty much just like in the first game. I would say there are more fixing-machine-minigames than in the first 2 games though. Also still no inventory puzzles, pixel hunting and the backtracking issue from especially the 2nd game is not that present anymore. You have to walk quite a bit in Valsembor, but that doesnt feel so idiotic like dicking back to the train to get warm clothes in the beginning of S2. The only really annoying part was the underwater scene. Especially with these camera angles and control.

    What's the point developing a game using Unity and yet Windows-only on PC? (if we exclude the console ports)
    Oh right, Denuvo.

    Using a game engine useful to easily port on whatever the system/OS is, but restricting distribution because of that DRM?
    Beyond rotten ideological matters, I can't explain this nonsense.

    And it has been cracked already,by a random guy using sub optimal methods.
    This is why you don't use denuvo with unity games,there is no way to properly implement it into the exe file.
    But i guess they didn't learn even after doing the same thing with yesterday origins.
