    I feel bad for these people. Spent 2 years on a game and now it's out and it's shit. But honestly, they should have seen that this game isn't on par with the current quality of any game
    What?!
    2 years?
    Come on I could make it alone in a week and a half.
    And I'm not putting myself at high regards here, anyone who's got decent knowledge of modelling, programming and level design could.
    Hell, the only thing I couldn't replicate would be the voice at the beginning.

    My god. Stixsworld is the most arrogant person I have ever seen on the internet. He just whines about how his precious bloody FRAPS and all his other crap are far superior to the Srcdemo2 that he can't even run. He won't even touch the debug feature since he doesn't want to look inferior for taking some help. *rant over*

    Anyhow, back to discussing Revelations 2012's bleak future and the huge bloated face of the Army Guy deity.

    Revelations 2012 is a hilarious experience, because this idiotic and pretty much unplayable can't have been made with a serious intent. The game gets one whole point for the laughs it caused, and that's it.

    Supermoose: your team would do well to read this.

    http://steveblank.com/2012/05/14/9-d...start-up-sins/

    Not every example will appear to line up with Dark Artz because he's speaking about other kinds of businesses, which is why I've written out the titles below. Read as a list, it's almost 100% accurate to all of your problems with the possible exception of point #9 (although, if you were to employ truly experienced people to fix your problems then that's a huge potential danger).

    1. Assuming you know what the customer wants

    2. The "I know what features to build" flaw

    3. Focusing on the launch date

    4. Emphasising execution instead of testing, learning, and iteration

    5. Writing a business plan that doesn't allow for trial and error

    6. Confusing traditional job titles with a startup's needs
    [This one is so important. Should you have had an artist and an animator? Probably not. A 2D artist with good model-crafting skills and basic skeletal animation ability is not that hard to find, and in fact you could probably find someone with all of that and a bit of mapping ability. As it was, you employed three people to do all of these tasks badly. Same with all those senior roles: someone should have been good at marketing, accounting, project management, etc but as it was you had these roles because you thought you ought to, and gave them to the least qualified but oldest family members in exchange for their support. Most small games companies wouldn't even have these roles: just the team and a team leader.]

    7. Executing on a sales and marketing plan

    8. Prematurely scaling your company based on a presumption of success

    9. Management by crisis, which leads to a death spiral

    I would say its kinda too late to read that since we already know most our flaws. If not all of our flaws. We're heading in the right direction now. We're also taking the time to look at other games. To see what gave success in those. That's just one of the many things we're doing. We're also getting some free help from talented people. They are helping us in little bits and pieces. So we're not just sitting back with a beer in our hands and watching them mold our game. ;) Most of the work is still on Dark artz hands.

    Honestly, I think your game had some great ideas in it just poor execution.


    It's fun with friends just for laughs and any game that can do that deserves more than a 3/10. But looking at it objectively, it's a pretty bad game. It's still not the worst game I've ever played, mind you. That honor goes to M&M Kart Racing. If you want to see a REALLY REALLY bad game with no fun at all even with friends, play that game.

    I think that is our biggest problem. We rush everything. We've had many deadlines that we thought we would hit but blew through each one. Our first one was december 2010. The game looks way better than it was back then. That's a given though.

    ET 2600 is a fairly bad game, correct; but it was created on limited technology. The primary problem was that the game never educated you as to its own rules, but once you overcome that its surprisingly playable, albeit absolutely terrible.

    There's one thing you can say though: it was wholly original in its content. Given that and the limitations of the format, I'd call ET 2600 a vastly more playable game than this.

    Not to mention it was rushed so they could get it out for the holiday season. It could have been something else had they been given time.

    Holy shit, what the fuck happened between first release and now?

    See what happens when you actually try. You get something that's not all that bad.

    The weapon and enemies could still use a bit of work.

    If they would have delayed the game for like half a year or something like that and redo the maps and make the weapon feel less like a peashooter they could have had a decent game.
