Midair Light Tribes PUG Gameplay - Gorthaur - 05-09-2016 09:50 AM


I backed at the $70 alpha tier.

Hmmm...first time I have heard of this, thanks Gorthaur for posting the links. I watched the match (didn't recognize any of the player names; were you or anyone I may know a part of the match?), and went to the Midair link and read the page in its entirety.

Interesting...sounds a lot like Tribes re-made by tribers. I am seriously tempted to become a backer and the only holdup now is that it is offered through Steam. I have had some serious problems with Steam heretofore. Questions:

-Are you of the opinion that Midair will supplant Tribes:Ascend as the preferred game of tribers?
-Is there no other way to acquire the game than via Steam?
-If Steam is the only way, does the game require itself to be run through Steam?
-I have been a backer of a game before and been disappointed in the result, do you know any of the developers or members of Archetype Studios? I mean I know that life is full of risks, how confident are you of this actually happening?

-Yes, I think most Tribes vets will switch over
-I don't know, you should post a thread on their forum and ask!
-Well these guys have already shipped one "product" - Legions: Overdrive which was I believe a community expansion on Fallen Empires: Legions by Garage Games (former Dynamix employees). Most amateur game projects are horrible failures but that fact plus how solid the gameplay and aesthetics look already has me convinced they can ship a quality product. There are plenty of options for backing or you can just wait until it releases and you can try it for free at that time.

Kickstarter campaigns tend to start strong at the beginning, stagnate in the middle and then finish with a big burst of funding. As I have seen from this one it has been stagnating the last couple of days. I think it should be a pretty close call if they get funded so they need all the help they can get.

Thanks...will do my best to implement your suggestions. I played Legions for a while, actually more than a little while on my previous computer.

My pledge has been collected, Midair is being developed! Yaaaaaay!
