Quoted from Edenecho:
Cant read all posts for the last months here, so just asking;
With the physical fixes being done to Rick n Morty after delivery, for example the fixes Karl Deangela has done to make the game play butter smooth, is this fixes that will be now done in production for the games being produced in the factor?
This is not exactly a black and white answer, and frankly one I've been wondering about. Recall that there's been a spectrum of *fixes* ranging from "just remove the screws to absorb the shock" to "drill new holes to tweak the geometry," with variations in between. What I'm curious about is where Spooky landed on this.
As much as I love Spooky games (I have an unhealthy affection for both Rob Zombie and TNA), I can also acknowledge that their games have been a bit clunky. So, even though I haven't played R&M yet, the concept of it needing tweaking seems in alignment with my experience on their other games (including Scott's prior masterpiece).
Several prominent voices in this thread have achieved what I would want with my game, by moving lane guides, etc. Has Spooky been as aggressive as this? Not sure.
I have no interest in getting into an argument with anyone about this, however... The facts are that the progression thus far has been: Spooky released the game in the original state, then said "just removing the screws" was all that was needed to resolve reported issues, and now has seemingly made more aggressive tweaks. KUDOS to them for listening and acknowledging that they can improve their product -- I have no complaints about them. I love it when people have the self-assuredness to admit their creation can be better. But this should invalidate the other prominent voices in this thread that say "I'm not going to change anything because this is how the designer intended the game."
Hopefully the newer versions coming from Spooky will play as well as some of the geometrically enhanced versions are reported to shoot. I'm still 200+ spots away from getting my game, so who knows, there may be even more "enhancements" between now and then.
