Makes with the working

V-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • I think it dropped below 200, once.

J-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

P-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • It dropped to about 150-200 while I was recording with NVenc Lossless.
  • Another Unity game which isn’t bottlenecked by the processor.
  • Big kudos to the devs and to the Bard family for the work they keep putting in the engine!

Shiny / Sounds

V-CHAIRCHAIR

  • Looks like a slightly updated Q3 MOD… in hell.
  • Evil Clipy was cute but making him red killed the humor Clipy was already the spawn of Satan.
  • The soundtrack comes across as a kidz bop version of Metallica’s Black album.
  • Uses the generic overmodulated demon voice filter for the demon audio.

J-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • This guy would have got two chairs from me but for one reason:
    • I’m a sucker for metal sountracks. Even if I can play “Name that riff” with most of the soundtrack”
    • Curious to see what kind of plagiarism lawsuits emerge from the soundtrack
  • The rest just looks and feels like quake. Not a bad thing, but it doesn’t get you points

P-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • It really does look like someone took a Quake 3 arena, took out 90% of the floor and threw in a couple of power-ups to make sure you could still finish the level.
  • Does the Devil Hand really need to take up almost a quarter of the screen?
  • It’s a very good looking and well detailed hand… Hell, I wish my right hand looked like that.
  • But does it have to be so distractingly big?
  • There was background music but most of it was “Elevator Music of the Metal Kind” and the moment I got “in the zone”, it became negligible background noise.
  • Your character likes to quip about acquiring the power ups or nailing a jump or whatever, but his vocabulary seems severely limited.
  • Also, not entirely sure Lucifer would be the appropriate entity to be dropping random bits of internet meme-culture.
  • Thankfully, the levels are short and the repetitiousness of the quips is kept down to minimum.

Control

V-CHAIRCHAIR

  • What is wrong with your face jump?
  • I’m not saying it’s broken but don’t give me a bunny hop levels when that mechanic is not spot on.

J-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • No real issues here.
  • Fucking flappy bird? Seriously?

P-CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

  • As much as the level design fucks with you, the controls are spot on.
  • If you miss a jump, go back and try again because it was your fault.
  • If you can’t seem to get a hold of the teleportation/gravity reversal thing, keep flailing until you’re through (it worked for me on a couple of levels).
