Re: Start-up Crash on Win 8.1 64-bit

Deleting local content and re-installing fixed it (I pestered the Twitter account too), thanks!

Re: I'm reading 52 scifi books this year.

I don't have a challenge, but I recommend a single book - Fallen Dragon by Peter Hamilton. All of the themes of the rather long Night's Dawn trilogy, condensed into a single average-length book.

Not sure how common recommendations of Hamilton are, but that book always stands out to me.

I haven't been on the forums in a while

. . . is there any way anyone can tell me how to get Maia on Steam? I backed the project, I had access to all of the early builds via the intermediary site. I scoured my emails ad infinitum but I could never figure out how to redeem a valid Steam code.

Any and all help greatly appreciated <3

Sorry for the bump, getting round to activating this on Steam. Any ETA for a direct download on the portal?

Re: Frames per second

As a rule, a higher FPS is in general better. While it's not necessary to have an absolutely ridiculous FPS on games that aren't twitch-based combat/shoot'em'ups, being able to render the game at such speeds enables a greater likelihood of players taking to your game, as while some people may deal w...

Re: Sci-fi BOOKS you have to read.

Night's Dawn trilogy and/or generally anything by Peter F. Hamilton. Fallen Dragon is an excellent standalone, and the Nano Flower is a decent, if different, attempt at intrigue. I love me some Asimov, but people do fixate on Foundation (don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed it) when his other works ...
