You are an idea. Your driving motivation is to spread your idea to everyone. You must cajole, you must browbeat, you must insinuate, and you must influence. Grow your flock of ids and guide them to victory in this casual real-time strategy game. Influence other ids by flocking with them and outnumbering them. Create dramatic soundscapes as each id you influence adds its voice to your song. Play against computer controlled opponents or online against other humans. Influence is easy to learn, but difficult to master. Each game only takes about five minutes, but you will find yourself playing again and again to learn advanced strategies and techniques. As your skills grow, you can customize your ids to match your preferred style, and maximize your victory potential. Choose between speed, agility, and resistance, or a balance of all three.

See the story of an idea. In every game of Influence, the players create a new story about a great idea and how it spreads.

Sadly same issue. All typical troubleshooting fails. And between it being indy, no official forums, and that the name 'Influence' is widely used in everything, if there is information out there, I'm not sure how to find it :/
That, or I am completely missing it

Oddly, the demo runs fine for me, but the actual game crashes on launch.

Dude, that totally ruined it for me. Game spy are the scumbags that run FilePLanet. You know ....they are the guys who pay game developers for exclusive rights to host their game patches.

Then they make you sit in Que, watching endless popups unless you pay them their extortion fee.

#$%^ing no way i am going to help support their cause.

i helped make the Jungle Warfare mod for unreal 2004. I helped bring them thousands of dollars worth of traffic.

What did i get in return?

On release day, I had to sit in line for over an hour to download the game I helped make.

They have enough money.... They do not need any more money from me.
No -sale.

Sorry, the game looks beutiful too :(, wish i did not see that splash page.

While your story is a point-and-case as to why GameSpy is bad, it unfortunately does not hold up in this situation. Games hosted here are patched through Desura so there is no queue.

The developer's choice of whatever requires them to use a GameSpy splash page is unfortunate but, unfortunately, all you are serving to do is scare people off of a beautiful game that real people who ARE NOT GAMESPY have worked hard to create.

Interesting game, but considerably laggy on my system.

Incredibly laggy on my laptop and I can play modern games like Left 4 Dead with no problem, albeit on slightly lower settings. Did the developer not bother optimizing the game at all?

edit- I like the game idea though. It's just frustrating that it's too laggy to play at all.
