Unfinished: Unfinished: Ruction: The Golden Tablet 02/08/2017

Ok, Early Access is one thing but this might have been a bit too early...

Sometimes we look at a game before it's done. When that's the case? Well... it must be Unfinished.

The fact that Steam allows them to sell this garbage for $10 is sort of sickening.

Haven't watched the QL yet, but from what I know of this game (which isn't much at this point) I really hope that the GBEast guys mention that this entire game is the work of one dude. One guy made it, so, cut it a bit of slack if it's super EARLY ACCESS etc :)

The reviews for the game are pretty good too. 3 positive reviews from people who either only own the game or, at best, own barely anything else.

We should all refer to them as Moai statues too, b/c they're often mistaken for just heads instead of whole bodies.

@lordloc: Stardew Valley, Lone Survivor, Axiom Verge and Momodora were by one person. This has no business being sold in this state, even as Early Access.

It's hard to feel for the developers even if what they're creating is ambitious when they're putting this out at 9.99€. I guess it's a way to gauge interest and not that different in principle to starting a Kickstarter campaign, but making a debut in something like this is likely just going to end up damaging the image of the product. You only get one time to make a good first impression, after all.

Just remember kids, making video games is hard. So make something good before you start selling it, or else you'll end up like ol' Ruction here.

Nope! (S)He's charging money for it so (s)he gets no slack. If you're over at a friend's house and they're cooking dinner for you, you got no right to complain if it's not great. If you're at a restaurant and pay for your food and the food sucks, you have every right to complain. "Oh but we just opened and there is only 1 cook" doesn't matter, once you start charging money for your product, it better be good.

1 or 20 people, this game deserves the buyer beware it got because charging money for this "game" is dishonest. This isn't early access, this is a concept.

Vinny's got that Super Mario 64 speedrun tech. Just a little bit more speed at the end there and he would have made it into a parallel universe.

Maybe it's just me but when a game is THIS busted, it's not even a fun or funny Quick Look. There needs to at least be some level of competence and expectation of functionality. Either that or the game should be insanely weird.

This cracked me up. That mysterious suction force in the end! Did it represent our galaxy as it seems pulled to a very distant location?

Someone wants money for this. If I were being kind, I would say it needs more work to even present as unfinished.

With all the games available in the world, what was the point of this? Why cover this instead of one of hundreds/ thousands of other games out there?

I don't get the point of this choice.

irrelevant how many people made it. Games are either good or not. This is not. You want to make things to practice fine but if you are going to charge money for them expect to be evaluated and if it is bad expect to be evaluated accordingly.

this is just an asset flip to make money and it is sad no gameplay no nothing to really separate it from the other junk on steam there isn't even a cohesive plot (alex yelling about why are you here was spot on) or any gameplay necessarily ... why does steam allow this is so upsetting that there is actual real money being given to this person for this

And charging a LOT of money too. You can get A LOT on Steam for €10 these days. Now I know one person team and all that. Well done for their hard effort. But you can also have it free or $1. Like they said pricing it at 10 puts a value on the work.

@paulunga: I was thinking more of the hundreds of terrible flash animations/games he's starred in. Legit didn't know he's moved on to actually good projects since then, nice.

But then again, there's also this.

Yeah when we get an entire stream going "man its a bummer all these games come out on steam and noone is ever going to see them" Then we get 30 minutes of something noone is ever going to play instead of information on a possible good game. But I get they have sunk cost already on research, and the cycle continues.... Don't get me wrong, this was consumer awareness at its best, just... so demoralizing.

Sorry to bring this up, but why am I having so much trouble playing back this video and other videos recently? It seems like the new videos are getting harder and harder to play back. I have it set to low and still get the same problem and I have a business class download speed here at work. I have the same problem at home as well.
