“The game takes audio and smashes it against math to create these gorgeous levels. When folks tell us it's great, we know we're working in the right direction. When they say it's awful, we like to ask why. We didn't used to, but the best thing we do nowadays is to run every coolest little thing we do by you. How about this new city? This mutator? That new stunt? A new connection between music and level design? That's the "why" behind Early Access for us.”

Σχετικά με αυτό το παιχνίδι

Battle your favorite drum 'n' bass track, or relax as you fly through that trance album. "Ugly Baby" takes your MP3 music library and creates floating cities for you to explore. Ten years after the events in Dejobaan's award-winning AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! -- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, technology has advanced to the point where individuals can create architecture with colossal 3D printers.

You've taken to building giant, kilometers-long aerial sculptures inspired by your own music, and are now BASE jumping from them for sport. These jumps are all about style and timing. Buzz those girders, groove along that building, and finish with a twist for extra points, all the while listening to your own soundtrack. Ugly Baby is currently available as a playable pre-release on Steam.

Key features:

  • Play different floating worlds built from your MP3 library
  • Execute stunts such as buzzes and grooves.
  • Tweak a city's DNA to warp them and create your own experiences.

There's something about this series that I find strangely relaxing; soaring through the sky, twirling around buildings ... similar to Mirror's Edge in feel, in that there is a genuine feeling of height and falling that is just oddly cathartic to me. I'd love to see this incorporated in another game; perhaps a way to make fast travel feel less like point and click and more like travelling fantastical distances (I've always felt like my character in Bethesda Games is doing a Megaman-esque beam up whenever I fast travel). This installment brings with it full mouse control, which I find to be very tight and easy to master, the ability to use your own tracks on some levels (Yes, I used Megalovania and Arachnophilia), and an interesting character in Asumi.

That said, this game has been in Early Access for quite a while, and I think I know why. As much as I like this, it does feel very much the same, and I think the developers know that and are trying to find new ways to mix up the formula. Now, I for one don't mind more of the same; I've already run through all the levels on the other games and like the idea of using my own music to mix things up again (Hopes and Dreams, people). If I had to throw in a criticism, though, the levels where I could use my own music didn't have as much level variety as I would've liked. I also echo the same sentiment as many; a free-fall option where you aren't stopped after three hits would be nice.

So do I recommend this? I'm gonna go with a very tenative yes, with a suggestion that you pick up one of the others first if you're a prospective new player and wait and see if the project has truly been abandoned before putting more than a dollar of your money up for this title in particular. I sincerely hope this isn't the case; with VR already descending on the video game industry, this (along with the previous games) is one of the titles that makes me want to plunk down the cash to see where Asumi's story takes her.

About 5 years ago I got this game in the Potato Sack Pack.
Since then it's always sat at the top of my library, seeing as it's sorted alphabetically.
I decided to check it out just now and noticed there was only one achievement: 'I Beat City 15'
So I made it my goal today to get the achievement.
I sat here, played through the intro level and decided to skip straight to City 15 just to save time.
After a bit of searching around, I couldn't find the level. A quick google search led me to the conclusion that the developers removed the level, but kept the achievement up. 3 years ago, the devs said they would fix it.
2016 still no fix.

if your favorite thing to do is to set money on fire and watch it smolder for years, this game is a perfect opportunity for you to have the kind of fun that you enjoy.

or if your idea of having a good time is to just have another game in your library that will amount to nothing more than another pretty icon to stare at, this may be your style of game.

or if you are the kind of sado-masochist who enjoys buying games that they know are worthless, for the soul purpose of giving them the "thumbs down" or a so-called "funny" review; again, this game could be right up your alley.

or if you are one of these benevolent souls who just enjoys helping poor little "independent" game publisher scum become wealthy people for doing nothing more than stealing and stabbing their customers in the back, again, this is a perfect opportunity to fulfill your desire.

but if you were looking for an enjoyable way to pass the time for a few hours; well, in that case, you would be barking up the wrong tree here.

steam was actually selling this game for over a year before they plastered the early access bs warning label on it.
a half a decade has now elapsed and this game is still vaporware or at best; an unplayable mess that is not worth the time to load the program, (as you can see by my hours of game-play). if that's what you are hoping to find in a game, enjoy.

otherwise, you may wish to save your money for something less harmful. or not, i don't care.

Game's dead, and this business model of Early Accessing a game to avoid refunds is cancer. You won't be able to refund if you got the game during the potato event. And trust me, this game's support has been dropped like an ugly baby, and this game is an easy refund simulator, but don't even try. #Abandonware #Bernie2016

This game confuses me hell of a lot. I don't get it. I would play it again, when i took some .... you know what i mean....I am not sure if i could recommend it or not. but on the other hand, i wouldn't nüchtern (sober).
I feel like 10€ is to much, though the technique looks quite good and stable and i like the music. i hope better games will come up. don't buy - please buy it.

What can I say about this game. It is the first early access game on steam. A game that has been in a state of early access for 4 years and 8 months(April 1st, 2011) and no sign of ever going gold. In fact, it has been so long since it's last update that it has almost been as long since it was updated as the offical launch of early access games on steam. If Valve had taken a look at how early access worked for this game I doubt they would have ever allowed any early access games on steam. Why any game that has not been updated in over two years without being formally released is allowed to stay avalible to customers to purchase is beyond me.

Truthfully, it's not a horrible game but it is far from great. Most of my hours came from stress testing a video card. This game would cause crashes more often then any other I owned at the time. The rest came from the 2011 potato thingy for portal 2 launch. If your a fan of games that use your own music to generate levels I would recommend a bunch of others others over this one. Even Dejobann's other game AAAAaaaAAaaAAaaaaAAAA!!!!! does the concept much better and is more polished than this rendition. I just can't recommend this game to other people.

This is an unfinished piece of software with a horrible name that tries way to hard to make you interested. The gameplay is poorly explained, which leads to an experience that barely functions as a game, let alone a music player. Go buy audiosurf if you want a procedurally generated music player that allows you to interact with it. This was the worst free gift I have ever personally recieved, why steam still has this as a purchaseable item in their store is beyond me.

I own all of the games released by Dejobaan to date except for Elegy for a Dead World. This game is probably my largest disappointment. They grew bored of the concept and abandoned it and the promise it had. I like the idea of games generated by the music playing, and it's successfully executed elsewhere, but, not here. It boils down to the fact that while this game exists, it's here, and it doesn't SUCK, it's not worth grabbing because there's no further promise to the game and it's really not all that finished.

I purchased this game back in 2011 (before this Early Acess stuff started), in hopes that the Developers would get around to finishing it. Instead, they went back and re-released a "new" version of "AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! -- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity" and have barely touched this game ever since.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME AS IT IS FAR FROM FINISHED!!

The fact that you are still seeing this game on steam is a result of three groups of people negating their responsibility.

1. The developers of course, for abandoning the game and quite literally walking off with gamers money.

2. Valve, for not removing abaondoned early access games from Steam and offering refunds to those burnt gamers.

3. Us - the gamers - for allowing Dejobaan Games LLC to continue as a company despite the first two points.

Oh and Dejobaan? Finish a game before starting on another one. Also give me (and the rest of the gamers that put faith in you in this title) my money back.

Intro:

1...2...3... Kick It is a music game modelled after Dejobaan's earlier game, "Aaaaaa," in which the player "base jumps" and avoids a series of obstacles on their way to the ground. This iteration is only a spiritual successor, as Dejobaan has removed many of the more action-oriented elements from their formula and has instead tried to craft a new genre of relaxing music game with only two or three core gameplay mechanics instead of the many kisses, combos, landings, and tricks we saw in "Aaaaa." The concept is much simpler now: fly close to objects to earn something called "TB," and you also get something nice if that object is oriented towards the bottom of your screen. There are no landings, tricks, combos, or crowds to show off to. Because the game is STILL IN PROGRESS, I am trying to be as fair as possible. Please understand that any of the bullet points below may be changed or improved by the time you are reading this.

The Good:

* The graphics are visually interesting, but there is still room for improvement. I imagine a music game should have something more than plain black backgrounds.

* The Game is constantly updated.

* Interesting and well-developed soundtrack. I am not super into music but I thought the lyrics and beats were fun to listen to.

* The developers are some of the nicest people in the world. Drop by the Steam community forums and see for yourself: they respond to every bug, glitch, and criticism with poise and patience.

The Bad:

* Not all updates are good. For example, it used to have a nice voiceover AI in the menus, which for some reason was replaced by silence in the latest update. Silent menu screens? In a previous build, I was unable to load any actual levels due to the way the game saves music.

* The full-screen is not working at the time of this writing. It opens a window large enough to fill my screen, but there is still the familiar Windows 7 title bar at the top.

The Ugly:

* There is nothing that I can see to qualify this as a music game. Some obstacles will "pulse" with the beat of the music, but everything else in the level seems to be pre-scripted. I can listen to Dolly Parton or speed metal while playing and get the same experience. My recommendation for the Developers would be to replace the black background with something colorful that responds to the music.

* The free-falling mechanic is just not that interesting or immersive like it was in Dejobaan's first game (which was not very immersive to begin with). This feels more like a rail-shooter than a falling simulator. There is no rush of wind passing my ears, no way to slow or speed my descent, and absolutely nothing to remind me that I am falling down instead of running sideways or flying upwards.

Conclusion:

Because the game is still in development at the time of this writing, I think this review (and any others) should be read in that context. Unfortunately, at this stage of development, I never-the-less foresee "1...2...3... Kick It" as being noteworthy just for coming alphabetically in your list of games, and not for the enjoyable time you spend playing it.

Almost five years of broken promises and we're left with a tech demo that doesn't even resemble the original concept that was sold. I've repeatedly contacted Dejobaan but have received nothing but lies (they claimed it was a priority but have released four other titles in the interim) and mocking shrugs (along the lines of "gee, we can't please all of the people all of the time"). Valve refuse to refund despite their complicitness in promoting it during a 2011 sale.

This is a total scam and should be avoided at all costs. Dejobaan should be ashamed of themselves, if they're actually capable of feeling such.
