Yes space game fans do offer the harshest critique. If enough leans in one direction though, as in people always falling back on the ‘pew pew’ saying. Then what, if anything could be done with that, shaped into something useful to start to even out the ‘pew pew’ critics. How to shape gameplay and show it these critics as something exciting to play, they might buy a copy of the game. Now thats the trick, and not an easy one at that.
And the comments continue here…
Maybe we could start listing ideas to help the devs in and around the going to alpha date. And maybe also some post alpha ideas as well. I keep Scott Manley and Bluedrake42 updated. I tried to keep Angry Joe updated but have not had a reply from him since the kickstarter, busy guy I guess. I do have regular contact with the Star CItizen lead writer Dave Haddock, who along with his writing team over at CIG are fans of the game. But I do not have any wider gaming media contacts and nor do I use the twitter, the fleecebook, or reddit.
The wider gaming media both online and print are very important to have onboard. A PR and community manager would be great around now to have.
So whats the next best ideas you have?
