3 comments by WraithEnt on Feb 18th, 2013

Agent Code Name: ALICIA
First Name: *Redacted*
Last Name: *Redacted*

Demographics:
Single parent family
Affluent upbringing

Only child
Honors:
Graduated 1st in class
Perfect Scores in marksmanship and advanced space combat
Holds degrees in criminal psychology, sociology, foreign trade
Black belt in Ninjutsu

Physical Profile:
Attractive and slender. Powerful eyes, symmetrical face. Perfect physical candidate for missions involving infiltration and seduction.

Psychological Profile:
Unable to handle failure. Obsessive nature can endanger mission and/or fellow operatives. Demonstrates no willingness to deviate from mission parameters. Unable to improvise or effectively alter long-term strategy. Prowess in close quarters combat and ship to ship combat makes agent unjustifiably confident.

Abrasive personality will make it difficult to cultivate meaningful assets and informants. States to work best alone, but field tests indicate agent will need a strong team in order to succeed. Unable to foster teamwork or friendship. Will ultimately fail.

Recommendation:
Though extremely gifted, ALICIA is unsuited for missions requiring deep cover or limited support. Will be a threat to mission success. Recommended action is removal from active duty and transferred to a role as a mission analyst.

It says a lot about a game that makes you miss your $1. Lovely art design and good ideas aren't enough to save this heap of junk. The ship handling is terrible, made worse by the mouse cursor sitting in front of the screen.

On top of that the sound design is laughably bad. The only noise in game is the music and the **** poor weapon sound effect for your ship. No rumbling of engines or enemy fire whizzing past you. Plus the voice acting, as bad as it is, completely disappears out of cut scenes and becomes little silent text prompts you have to read mid battle.

Maybe my version is bugged, out dated? I want to love this game, I really do. Space sims are my favourite genre, and Dawnstar looks beautiful. But it's insanely unfinished to the point of being unplayable.

Why did u suppresses all comments posted in May ?
U didn't answered my questions :

When the next version will be released ?
Are you still working on the game ?
Are you gonna change the way savegames are stored, currently the windows registry is not the better place for that.
How about the invincible ennemy bug (0 life but still flying) ?

We're working on an update. In regards to saves there's not much we can do about it with how Unity works.

Seriously? I have a lot of Unity games that don't save to the registry. All of Arcen's games run on the Unity platform and none of them use the Windows Registry for savegames.

You guys don't inspire much confidence.

I was just about to buy this game on Indie Game Stand but decided to check this page first, and the level of abandonment made me totally change my mind.

Same here- i think i would like this game but i'm afraid of running into issues which will not get fixed if the game is abandoned already.

I`d love to see the Dev comment on this.

Played it at a friend's place, he just bought it off Gamersgate. Frankly, I'm not impressed. Sound glitches, no save button, no way to check controls ingame, laggy performace even on a 660ti with a Hexacore processor. Unacceptable. There are also NO TRANSITION SCREENS, this is absurd. When you fly into a jumpgate in a game like X you're treated to a nice little fade out then the game loads, then you pop out on the other end. Here, no, the game LOCKS UP, flickers to a loading screen then dumps you…
