Talisman: Prologue

Talisman: Prologue

Damn it!
I mistakenly purchased this game and two gift copies for multiplayer with friends the other week thinking I was purchasing the digital edition. When I bought it I had only ever seen the multiplayer version when browsing through games so I didn't think twice when clicking purchase. Oops! Then I found out Steam doesn't do refunds, so I'm SOL.

I didn't want a solo version of this game at all. If I wanted that I could pull out the board game I already own and play pathetically play Talisman by myself. To be quite honest I don't think this game belongs on Steam, especially when there are so many completed games that are vying for greenlight status. The store page is also VERY similar to the digital version which is what ultimately got me. This has ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off enough that I won't be getting the digital version now. Talisman is a mediocre, luck based game to begin with. That, and I've already paid for the board game and some solo ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ized digial version that I'll never download or install.


Ultimately, it's my own fault for not reading. Oh well, lesson learned.

Proto-Ware...it was designed to bring in money so the developer could finish what they had really intended. This is why purchasing on release day hurts you more than helping the developers nowadays.

I got mine on GamersGate for $10 and half year later they flopped out the Digital Edtion for $5 more.

I wasn't very impressed. But as such I've slowed down purchasing games unless they offer Steam Keys or are from GOG.

I do all research now and make sure that I'm getting a finished game.

Also beware of buying AfterFall Insanity anywhere outside of Steam.

my best guess is to try to make the best of it. it has a certain appeal which makes the prologue at least somewhat worth playing.

Its just mind blowing to me how many posts I see regarding people being upset with a purchase that could have EASILY been avoided had they taken the 30 seconds required to actually read up on the game. I just don't get why people find it so difficult to actually read about a product they are about to spend hard earned money on. It takes less than 30 seconds to read the games basic description. Actually, the fact that this is a single player game is actually stated in the second sentence of the game description so it would have only taken 5 seconds of reading to discover that fact.

Again, I just don't get it. The fact that these people then complain about said purchases just makes it all the more mind boggling. No offence, but buyers have nobody to blame but themsleves when they buy games without taking the time to read the game description. Take the time to understand exactly what it is your buying and people wont have these problems anymore. Its as simple as that.

Thanks Righteous.

It was a flash sale, and I may or may not have been walking from one meeting to another. Like I said, it was my fault. I made an assumption that I shouldn't have made.

That said, I still don't believe an incomplete product belongs on steam. I also think it is pretty reasonable to allow users to make an occasional mistake and refund a game that was never intalled.

Honestly. It makes no sense that the multiplayer isn't at least a DLC!

Look at it from their perspective: they already think they know what they're buying, so they don't bother reading the description. Why would you read something that tells you something you already know?

That said, it does baffle me a bit that people would assume a game titled "Talisman: Prologue" is the same thing as the full game. "Prologue" isn't really a word that suggests the main game of a series to me.

But it isn't incomplete.... It is exactlly what it is meant to be.
