IMPORTANT | For those players who weren't able to run the game

September 1

Hi everyone!

Many of you have played Soul Gambler on Steam and gave us positive reviews and we are very thankful for it.

Some of you have had problems trying to run the game and even though it was a small amount of players, we know how unfair is not able to play a game you paid for. Whether were many people or few people, our duty is to help you as best we can.

Many of you already know the story behind the development of the Soul Gambler and the reason of these bugs and how we cannot help to solve them and how that's why we are making the game from the scratch. Some of you, don't know this story and you just want to play the game you paid for and it's only fair. We must provide you what you paid for.

If you don’t want to read anymore text and just want to get the web version of the game, just skip the next paragraph and go to the instructions.

DISCLAIMER
We cannot fully fix the current game version (PC - Windows), because it was built by another indie game studio based on the web technology available at the time. We, Tlön Studios, are creating an improved version, Soul Gambler: Director's Cut, on Unity 3D and this project is been designed to be user-friendly and absolutely bugs free. Plus, everyone who bought the current version will receive the newer version (to be release on Christmas) for free as an update of the current one. If you can't play the current version of the game on your PC, we will give you access to the webgame, which is available on www.soulgambler.com - and is playable in almost every PC who runs a modern internet browser. Soul Gambler for PC, iOS and Web, are exactly the same game.

INSTRUCTIONS | to request full access to Soul Gambler (web version):

  1. Access the Soul Gambler’s store page on your Steam Client and take a screenshot like the one below, so we can check out your username and if you own the game;



  2. Access http://soulgambler.com/user/signup and register yourself on the website;
  3. Send us an e-mail to play@soulgambler.com requesting access to the web version, we need that you send us two things:
  4. The e-mail you used to register on the Soul Gambler's website;
  5. The screenshot you took on Step 1.
  6. We will give you full access to Soul Gambler and get back to you by e-mail on the very same day (24hs).

We are a small indie game studio trying to survive and making nice games and I'm sorry if we couldn't help you on the forums as often as we would like to. Don't worry we didn't forget you and we are very thankful and grateful for your support and for playing our game.

On Christmas, be ready for the Soul Gambler - Director's Cut!

If you have any other question or suggestion, regarding the game, please contact me directly on publisher@gamestorming.com.br

I broke down and bought the game for a few dollars thinking it would be a couple of hours, exploring different character types in a branching story.
Nope. Killed a guy? Go to Jail. Avoided a fight with the guy? Go to Jail. Punched him out and left? Go to Jail. Ran away from the cops questioning you with your godlike agility? You get caught, go to Jail.
This section is the most indicative of the game, what little choice you have is invalidated when the game has few actual choices, and no matter what happens, you always 'win'. The worst case is that you defeat the evil and end up in an asylum, but only comes about from the most rampant disregard of common sense.

Linear plot that varies by about three choices, railroaded locations that can't be avoided, once you've played through, a second playthrough consists of 70% of the same material, no matter what you do. Not worth money.

Pretty interesting and exciting interpretation of Goethe's Faust.
Every choice you make really matters so it isn't boring to replay this game over and over to see everything there is and unlock all achievements, though for now they are absent on game page. I guess they will be added later along with Steam cards.

Currently not supported for players who don't have at least IE 10 and .NET 4.0. They don't tell you this anywhere before you buy.

After having read a rather negative review on the game from a "Steam friend" about tech problems with the game I thought that I would try the game to see how it worked on my PC.
I Haven't had a single problem with this game. I uses FireFox (updated) on Win 7 , 64 bit .
I really don't like music going on all the time through the game so I killed the music at lower left of menu after a while...
Game appears to be a relatively short game but it might depend a lot on the decisions made..
The game allows for sawing at any point and you leave to menu without saving and restart from the save which will allow you to try different approaches from save point without having to start all over.
"Soul Gambler" is a game that will be best enjoyed by people that likes to try out different strategies and who don't mind fast forwarding through sequences seen before. Also the distribution of character points in beginning of game is also of importance to possible outcome of choices taken of available ones in game. I could write a suggestion here what not to spend character points on from start but that would be ruining the game...
I thought it quite alright. Rather short - the way I played it at least - but I might try it again with different character distribution points setup and / or partly making other choices to see how it alters the game story..
A major annoyance for me was that the Steam overlay didn't work why I couldn't take any screenshots using Steam overlay.
It is not a game that I think is worth a lot or a game that I think is having that much re-playability , but if you got it cheap then I suggest that you look at the bright sides of the game like that it got some nice comic book pictures , but do not expect anything more than an interactive comic book... (You will be able to learn about the game by playing it which will enable you to replay game with possibilities of an , at least partly, altered storyline).

Its quite short, parts of it are cool and it all looks and sounds good for what it is. However for what is basically a (kinda)interactive story, the story itself is weak and even unengaging at times, I wouldn't say its bad, but its just sort of shallow and there isn't a whole lot you can do.
