FORCED v1.22, Connecting people

13 giugno

Hi!

We have finally uploaded the massive network solution we've been working on for months. In short it replaces the old code we had and utilizes the steam backend, which should now allow more than 99% of people to connect to each other.
Before that people might have been stuck in different router setups that we hadn't predicted, but that should no longer occur.

Minor bugs may have been introduced due to this massive update, but we haven't had any reports for days now, and we've been playing a lot as well. So we are pretty sure Forced should now offer you a great experience no matter what evil router from hell you might have in your dungeon. But if you encounter a bug please post it on the forum, we will check on a daily basis.

Playing with randoms is awesome:
While playing recently, I encountered Seolfer (rank 2 in single player), who didn't knew I was one of the developers. So I thought “I'm not gonna tell him that” and I still haven't... :)
That lead to one of my best experiences with FORCED so far. We've been playing for hours and I was treated like a random internet guy from Denmark. Even without voice communication we were actually able to get the challenge crystals in world 4, amazing telekinetic play! :)
It's quite a special experience to play a campaign driven game with a random player over the web. You share an intimate problem-solving time over several hours, and might never meet again. Well I just wanted to recommend grabbing a few crystals like that, instead of only using friends.
So if you meet Seolfer or similar awesomely behaving entities, you should definitely grab some trials with them :)

Lastly thanks for actively helping us fix the new network solution.

FORCED love!
@Baboonlord and @BetaDwarf

FORCED v1.21, Network fixes

6 giugno

Hi everyone,

Sorry we've been out of touch for so long, we've been hard at work rewriting a lot of the new network code to fix all the problems it introduced.
As always with network, it's a bigger task than anticipated, and thus we've been getting more and more stressed without knowing what to tell you guys.

We just released a new patch however, and this one should be vastly better than before.
We're hoping to gather some feedback from all the players over the next week and then fix the last few issues.

You can head over to this discussion; http://steamcommunity.com/app/249990/discussions/0/522729358661470285/

Which will tell you the newest fixes as well as what we’re currently working on, in the hopes that you’ll have greater clarity about what’s going on :)

Thank you again for your patience, and keep up the activity on the forums, it’s greatly helping us in figuring out how to improve the game!

“Forced is one of the best co-op games around”
See – http://www.gamefront.com/indie-gems-forced-collaborates-in-the-arena

“Teamwork unlike almost any game I've played before”
See – http://www.onrpg.com/articles/editorial/pax-prime-2013-day-1-recap-pt-1-elder-scrolls-online-forced-strife-and-cosplay/3/

“It is these strategy elements, whether mental or physical, and the degree of communication and coordination required to achieve them where FORCED truly shines as a co-op game.”
5/5 – http://www.co-optimus.com/review/1302/page/2/forced-co-op-review.html

Informazioni sul gioco

Forced is a one- to four-player co-op arcade action RPG with puzzle and tactical elements. You are cast as slaves in the toughest fantasy gladiator school of them all, condemned to fight to the death, all the while attempting to win your freedom. You will face deadly trials and huge creatures, but Balfus, your Spirit Mentor will guide you in your quest to break the chains of oppression.

  • Local and online co-op, it's easy to plugin controllers and play on one computer
  • A challenging Gladiator campaign with monstrous foes and tricky puzzles
  • Four Unique Character Classes, with very distinctive playstyles
  • Skill focused: all enemy attacks can be evaded, it's your job to figure out how!
  • The Spirit Mentor, an extra party member which players must control together to gain an upper hand over the enemy
  • Survival Arena Mode (more modes coming)
  • Mark Combat System. Apply marks to enemies with your basic attacks, to set them up for devastating special attacks from you or your allies.

Forced is absolutely brutal, requiring constant team communication, clever problem solving and the mastery of combat skills. It can be an incredible amount of fun and is highly recommended for any group of gamer friends.This game pleasantly surprised me: simple in concept, but with an incredible amount of depth to it.I can’t stress enough how much fun Forced is when you’ve got even just one other player. It’s a smartly designed cooperative action game with a great variety in its challenges, and a great combat system that encourages teamwork over all else.Forced is an honest cooperative RPG with some good ideas suitable for 3 or 4 players but a hard nut to crack for lone wolves.Playing solo is oftentimes more frustrating than fun.However if you’re itching for a hardcore co-op action experience, then you’ve struck gold with Forced.

Easily one of the best Co-Op experiences out there; the puzzles can seem easy at times, but at others they can easily stop you dead in your tracks. I play it on occasion with a friend and we always have an enjoyable time. Also for the price it is an easy 10/10, well worth the money and with steam sales it is a no brainer.

Un Indie di grande spessore, multiplayer solido, innovativo e divertente. Inoltre la presenza di classifiche online con i tempi migliori per ogni livello garantisce un'ottima longevità per chiunque decida di affrontare il gioco in maniera competitiva.
