I don't think the Text-to-Speech program is actualy Microsoft Samantha, but what I meant by that was it sounded fairly low-budget and corny. There's tons of different TTS programs out there, and I'm sure you can find nicer sounding ones that can fit your budget (or even ones for free!).

By "CRT" I meant "Cathode Ray Tube Monitor Banding", which looks like a filter effect you seem to be using in-game, or in the trailers/screesnhots. It's fine having that in your game, and I'm sure some people will like it. Just might be nice having the option (in the Options Menu) to disable it, since I know some people also really dislike the effect.

e.g. This kind of optical effect.

Oh, so that's what the voice was.

Hm, then we'll make the CRT (CTR?..)filter off by default, and maybe tinker with it for less noise.

The Microsoft Samantha is pretty terrible as a narrator for the trailer.

Music is great.I really don't like the CTR-style filter. It's rather distracting, and honestly I think it makes the game look worse. We see that same style of effect on like 20% of all Greenlight submissions, and it feels really over-saturated.

I mean they are unique among what do I propose personally, as a game publisher. I need to create a selection of different genres, for the low-budget indie game lovers, and I do exactly that. Steam is OK with that, or else I'd not bother trying.

If I'd be pursuing the best business practices, I should've tell you that I'm sorry that this game doesn't cater to you, but let's get down to the truth - I not exactly am, and you're not the most polite person around. I respect your opinion, but it's hollow.

Unique? Seriously? you must have been living under a rock for the past 20 years.

Wow, you again. Thanks for stopping by, but no reasons for being rude. Every game I propose to Steam is unique, prove me otherwise?

shovelware.... no.
