The game and the idea behind it is fantastic, but unfortunately that’s not what I’m going to talk about right now. (I’ve had my fun, I still have a bit of fun, but in reality it’s starting to drag… I don’t like saying negative things, but it needs to be said)
I feel a bit ripped off, obviously this game is in alpha and has a lot of content to add to it.
As a company, FacePunch have made a figure I can’t even imagine after the mass amount of sales for Rust. Which in no doubt have also increased the sales for Garry’s Mod during this period prior to Rust’s release.
Where is all of this money currently going, because I don’t feel like it’s going towards the content of the game or hiring new staff out for the studio to increase the rate in which this game is improved upon.
We all knew what we were in for. In the UK £15 a pop to purchase Rust is all good, but a lot of people have stopped playing recently.
We’ve been consistently giving them our input, and by now they should have a firm direction in which they are taking this game.
There’s nothing particularly interesting about this anymore and it feels less and less original the more you play it.
Yes we had an updated sky, some bits fine tuned and the sea levels raised. But we already had these things to an extent.
I don’t speak for everyone here, but I would really like to see something that is actually new in this game, some progression that shows us where this is heading.
The trello site shows us little tid bits of &*%$ all and gets updated every so often.
There’s a lack of direction as far as I’m concerned for the game and I feel we deserve more, and there’s a hell of a lot of us out there at the end of the day that purchased this game. It might be nice now there’s a good bit of cash flowing about, the game was well promoted, stuck on the top sellers on steam for a good while and now its quite simply slacking.
After a vote for what we want to replace zombies, the vast majority wanted Dinosaurs & Military. Are we going to get either? (honestly I feel dinosaurs may be too much, large enemies similarly sized however would be great. Real threats besides people.)
WHAT ARE WE GETTING WITH THIS GAME!!?
So if any of the moderators or even Gary himself reads this, I have a couple of questions.
Where is this game headed and why are we kept in the dark in terms of future updates and your ‘hopes and dreams’ for the final point (if there ever is one) to this game?
I do love this game, I don’t mean to be negative about it. It’s just be in the back of my mind for quite some time now, the longer the game is taking to update, the more disappointed I’m getting…
I don’t want to have to feel like I’m going to have to come back to this game every 3 months just to see a minor thing has changed.
Are there deadlines and particular goals you are trying to achieve, for instance bringing the game from alpha in beta?
Thanks, sorry this was a bit long winded…
