The Tower: News and New 4K Screens






Hello all,

It seems like an eternity since the last news regarding The Tower was dropped, back in August I believe, and yes...without any updates, that was WAY too long.

To start with, here are four brand new images, all rendered in game at 4K resolution. Stunning, no?

Over the last six months, The Tower has been going through some crazy Unity 5 redesigning, as well as some thorough Oculus Rift implementation.

This is all for us to worry about though, but apart from the huge developmental issues, I personaly would like to bring to light some Community awareness matters and feedback, that have given us (but mostly me) some sleepless nights. This is going to be supremely honest...

I understand the Community frustration and anger over the lack of updates to The Tower (and some of our other titles as well) and the feeling that seven months without an update, can lead to allegations of 'scamming' or some other description of development neglect, but I want/need to inform you, our players, that this simply isn't the case.

We don't always inform the Community as much as I would like to be able to, and as I can see, this can have a devastating effect on future trust and positivity within our Community. I would like to know how we can build this trust back up to you all, starting with more frequent updates and transparency on the process of development with our game/s.

We want to build bridges and repair the damage that may have been done, through either helping those affected and no longer willing to support The Tower with getting a refund, or in some other fashion.

We dropped the ball. Several times. And I applogise for all of us and to you all, for whatever upset or anger it may have caused you.

This is us wanting to wipe the slate clean...to establish a better foundation than we had mid-2014.

Thank you for reading.

DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

I bought this after it "was released". It is nowhere near finished. This is a short (15min) alpha-quality demo level, which is terribly painful to "play" (its not play, this is the worst "gameplay" Ive ever seen). Basically the description of the game is a giant pack of lies. I wont dig into the details (Im sure others have), but suffice to say its false advertising at the very least.

Valve - you should give refunds for this, and delist this piece of sh*t.

One word: Horrific

Don't get me wrong I was so very excited for this style of game and for the first maybe sessions I enjoyed it. Then came the issue liken to a hailstorm of maddening insanity. I absolutely despise this issue, and this stuff about turning a new leaf. But hows this for comparision, if you have someone your needed to rely on something for and they fail constently would you trust them. I know I wouldn't they may not be scammers but, to drop projects soon after getting off greenlight and not bug fixes or maintenence all together. I am just gonna have to say don't bother with this game. I really wanted to give it a good review but, I just can't.

This isn't a game, it's a poorly designed chore. An actual chore wouldn't have have you bumping into invisible walls the entire time. Don't pay for the privalge of doing a poorly designed chore, stay away from this game.
