Selling a game in this state? Seriously?
I bought this game 2 days ago, thinking it would be interesting and just working. But it doesn't. The game itself feels like early Alpha software. Extremely aliased fonts (probably due to resizing), missing animations, unintuitive UI and the worst tutorials I've ever played. Literally NOTHING to learn from them. Theres a little Textbox which tells you what you have to do to win the tutorial. But why do I do that?
You learn absolutely nothing from these and, as a new player, you just can't to ♥♥♥♥ with the game.

Beware! If you intend to buy this game, be prepared to buy a giant chunk of buggy alphasoftware which is, graphically, ugly too. I'm not like "OMG CRYSIS LOOKS SOO GOOD" but this game does not only look bad because of its "engine" but because of it's style too.

Think before you buy, I got a refund because I just can't accept buying a game in this state with absolutely NO word of it on the storepage.

No, no. You're misunderstanding, the Steam version is PERFECT and completely finished. It's the version you order from townsgame.com that is the alpha! Oh, I think I just drooled sarcasm on myself.

Seriously, one of the devs (tommykent1210) is in this thread (http://steamcommunity.com/app/221020/discussions/0/882965239801179172/) trying to tell us that the Steam version is the finished product. If this is the finished product, then that is without a doubt, the most amateurish game I have seen in a long time. Compare it to SPAZ or Hotline Miami, which might I add are both cheaper than this game at a regular price of $10 USD and are absolutely brilliant.

Did your refund actually go through? This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen on Steam. I put in a support ticket to try and get my own refund.

Yes, I got my money back. Not exactly the money, but at least into my Steam Wallet so I can spend it on something else.

I've seen Free games, produced by one person, that were way better than this. When I started the game I felt ripped off. Straight ripped of. Well, for 1€ or something it would be okay, for hardcore players that like that genre regardless of what the game looks like. But 10€ for THIS?

I own SPAZ, and while I think it's not "brilliant" but good, you are absolutely right.

Guys, Try the ♥♥♥♥ing demo before you actually buy a game you're not so sure you like.
I bought the game in Alpha and I must say, Towns has grown incredibly and you jerks are just complaining....

A demo that is not available on the storepage. Do I have to search the Internet for a game sold in Steam? No. Every honest developer does post a Demo on Steam, if it exists. And second, there is not a single word of the game being this buggy. I "played" it for 20min and had 2 crashes, doing nothing but the tutorials.

The demo should be up in the coming week. Steam employees don't work on weekends. That is out of our control.

I feel exactly the same way. I'd have dropped this issue if the Dev's did anything other then giving me a big F U and telling me it was as intended. Learn how to deal with your customers and not make enemies you can't afford to have as an indie game company.

And who gave you a FU? I know I didn't. As I have explained. There demo WILL be up.

I don't want a demo. I don't even want your game anymore because I have been screwed. You know what your biggest problem is? Telling us that WE are too stupid to check a games state around the internet, instead of you just posting "sorry guys, its alpha. buy only if you are clear what that means".

Or better: Don't bite the hand that feeds you.


It's simple as that.

This is WAY too late for people who have already bought the game. Every developer or even previous customer response that we've seen on these forums so far has been along the lines of, "Everything is fine, the game is complete and playable" or "You should have played the [unavailable] demo and/or done research" which is insulting and unacceptable. Just say you're sorry for the confusion and fix the description and people will stop complaining.

This is the second worst PR response I've ever seen, do you guys work with Ocean Marketing?

"graphically, ugly too" You ♥♥♥♥♥, it clearly shows in the pictures what the graphics are like, quit crying.

This is not quite accurate, as there is only one actual screenshot shown. Stitching together a hundred screens to show an entire map zoomed out is not an accurate representation of graphical fidelity. I actually have no problem with the graphics, as I think the game is cute.

It does not. Does it show me what the animatios look like? Nope. Does it show me any text? Nope. Does it show me any UI? Nope.

You can download the demo from the fan wiki, if you go on steam store page, then official website, it'll give you a link for the wiki.

Why go on about graphics? A game is never about the graphics, but the gameplay, and a game like this doesn't need graphics any better than they are. Ahh.. the days when I played Endless Online...
The Punisher 10 nov 2012, ore 8:19 
I didn't look on the official site much yet, just looked at the wiki. xD
I might buy this game soon. :3

Are you being serious? With all the back and forth and you telling us you don't feel bad about anyone who made a purchase without playing the demo that we did not know is available?
