My vote's for a little "pack in" action figure. Maybe one of the more frightening monsters in either Shadowgrounds game. :)

I was thinking if somebody did a walkthrough, it might be helpful to use one of the free blogger services to do it in that form. Then you could relatively easily wrap tips/walkthrough advice around illustrative screenshots from the game. Maybe even put some streaming video links to highlight certain...

Can we get at least one static screenshot? If it was a Quicktime movie I could "copy and paste" an image out of it, but I don't know how (or if I can) with Windows Media Player. It's easier to run around other message boards spreading some good buzz about this if we have at least one actua...

Thanks. I hadn't paid much attention to how the rooms were labeled, so that got me in the right direction. :) I finished the game this morning. The level design on the alien ship was quite cool. The ending was ... refreshing. :) I hope there's a sequel, expansion or another cool action game done wit...

Stuck at "install software" in Emicron base *SPOI

This isn't a bug but me not understanding and not paying attention enough to what NPCs say (a log of what the NPCs tell you, vs. the log of computer terminal messages, would be helpful) I'm stuck at where you install the software on the alien space ship and then the engine. I can rotate the raise/lo...

I'm going to switch to MPEG1 format. I've researched, and Quicktime can't play MPEG2 stuff in pages unless it has a $20 add on. Apparently at home I had some pre-installed DVD player stuff that has it. So I'd like to make it work but if you want to give up on me I certainly don't blame you. :oops: :...

Do you have Quicktime player (the free movie player) installed?

I don't have Quicktime installed at work, I think, so I'm wondering if maybe that's t...

I agree that keeping a "fog of war" on what's in a room till yer on it increases the suspense. You can see that on the darker missions where the room you're about to enter has no light so you can't see what yer about to walk into. I assume the somewhat silly "fading flashlight" feature was a pickup ...

Problem is, a lot of people in the gaming world are sissies and proud of it. And if the game being hardcore alienates a lot of people who might otherwise buy the game, that's not good for the game, the dev or the publisher. Even if it's good for You. :P Having a quicksave, or some mid mission saves ...

I assume what he means is PVP deathmatch on maps specifically designed for it. It wouldn't be my cup of tea, but I could see more players being attracted to the game if it offered both that and campaign co-op online. :)

I've been babbling quite a bit on the Steam forums for this. Generally people are pretty enthusiastic about it. The lack of online multiplayer is really a sticking point for some people who liked the demo but aren't ready to commit to the full game. The lack of saving doesn't seem that big an issue ...

The Windows thing is just a "checker," it won't actually enable MPEG-2 play. If the "Stinky" codec won't work, you could try this freeware MPEG "Filter": http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Dscaler_MPEG_Filters.htm I can't vouch for any of these, so use at your own risk, but it seems like it should ...
