  1. Since we talk about different game publishing strategies I would come with one more topic. If there is something I really, really hate, it is game being published exlusively only for gaming consoles (Xbox, Playstation). Why would someone do that? Are the benefits of being exclusive really so big? Don't I want to sell my game to as many players as possible? And yet this is happening, quite often actually. I admit I am PC orthodox, so I may be blinded. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. First game which came to my mind reading your description of the game you're looking for, was Battlespire (Elder Scrolls spin-off) released in 1997. The first enemy you met there was a goblin who you could talk to and on the dialog screen there he kept jumping so it looked like he was floating above the ground. But the game takes place underground, so it is propably not it. Also it seems your game is a little bit older. Hmm... I've played computer games since early 90s and mostly RPGs. I think I would remember such game. Maybe it wasn't PC game after all (Amiga, Commodore 64)?
  3. One more thing - why would present developers sell their games through publishers? Isn't that outdated? I mean I saw a presentation of game designer Daniel Vavra (creator of Mafia and Kingdom Come games) and he was talking precisely about this. How they first had to travel to US to present their game to big studios/publishers like Bethesda or Ubisoft to publish the game through them. But then online stores appeared and after that there was no need for a publisher because they (the developers) could sell the game directly through Steam etc. Online stores have changed gaming business entirely.
  4. I don't know anything about MacBook, I've never used it. But I know a solution when this problem appears in Windows. Maybe it can be a hint for you to do something like that on your Mac. Solution for Windows (and it works generally for every game which may have the same issue) is this: Navigate to your game install folder, right click on the game executable file (*.exe). Now click on Properties โ†’ Compatibility โ†’ Change High DPI Settings โ†’ click check box at the bottom "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by: Application". Press OK and enjoy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Note tha
  5. Yeah, so something like the Witcher between-games transfers which were quite disappointing because they had no real input on the newer games. Few dialog mentions and 1 NPC may appear/may not appear in Witcher 3. Well, as much as interesting this idea looks like I wouldn't go too far to implement it into the game if it takes too much trouble. I could live without that. Would be nice though, I admit.
  6. Does this mean you will be actually able to transfer your character from QW1 to QW2? I guess Iยดm keeping my saves somewhere safe then...
  7. Congratulations! ๐Ÿ‘ Thank you for very detailed clarification. Much appreciated.
  8. Hello, just out of curiosity - I wonder how this works... I buy all games exclusively on Steam. When there is a sale for a given game, does Steam somehow compensate it to the game developer? If not (which is likely) who decides if/how often/how big the sale is? Because I've seen many games being on sale very often very cheap and others hold their prices no-matter-what. Some game goes at a discount price only like 10-15% off whereas other goes even 90% off (which is crazy). I admit I often buy games when they are on sale (same as many others I suppose). But s
  9. I would also like to thank you. Great job! Really helpful. Any chance adding Avernum 3: RW maps?
  10. Hello, this is my first post on this forum. I just want to say this: I am 40+ years old and I've been playing RPG games for more than 25 years. Obviously that's why I love old-school RPGs. I must admit I have had problems to find a game of my taste lately because the new AAA games just don't work for me. Then I found Spiderweb universe.... First game I played was Avadon: The Black Fortress. I liked it. But it was Avernum: EftP which really got me. I would never think something so simple-looking could have such satisfying game-play. In general I enjoy simple games
