In the beginning I was really fond of this game, since it had Peter M., the creator of Black&White, working on it.
So I purchased it and dabbled around until I hit the limit of what was currently posssible at that time, and to be honest i quite enjoyed it.
I unistalled it, deciding to check back once it was out of Early Access, but I kind of forgot about it.
A few days ago I found a news article stating, that Peter M. had left the studio, was currently working on something else and the current lead developer saying, that he's "sorry" for not finishing the PC version and instead focusing on making this into another free-to-play mobile game.
I re-installed the game and started it, to see what was going on and how the game had changed.
I very nearly smashed my fist through the monitor.
I could've handled the abbandonment by Peter M., but turning this into another ♥♥♥♥ing free-to-play, cash-grabbing mobile-oriented game?! HELL NO!
The straw that broke the camel's back for me was when the tutorial suddenly changed it's language to italian. Everything else was in english, the menu, the annoying commentary and everything else up to that very moment had been in english, but when the tutorial decided, for whatever reason, to change it's displayed "quest" text to italian, I lost it.
This so-called "game" started out as something promising, but now it's nothing more than a another example of waht's wrong in the game industry.
It once held promise, but since then it's been gutted and abused, and is now forced onto the corner of the street, to make a few bucks from the mobile-device gamers, like some cheap ♥♥♥♥♥.
It has been a while since i felt disgusted, but what happened to this game makes me sick.
