an indie sidescrolling infiltration game being worked on by a PC Gamer editor.  it's a work in progress, and he's looking for help.

I thought that looked quite cool.  Will definitely be interested in that when it gets to the point of release.

I was really excited about this one when first saw it about a year ago.  Downloading the demo now.

-edit-

Impressions: Fun mechanics, good sense of humor, itty bitty hard to see graphics.
Overall: I liked it!  icon_biggrin

didn't really have trouble with the graphics, and definitely liked it.  Crosswire looks to be really fun.

Probably not an issue on normal sized monitors.  Mine is rather large(27").  Someone on the Steam forums suggested choosing a lower resolution with the same aspect ratio.

ah, yeah, if you're playing at anything above 1920x1080 I can see it being an issue.  that's what I'm at on a 22 inch monitor.

I liked the demo, figured it's worth a purchase and I ended up being a sucker for the expensive version.

The developer posted this today so if you're thinking of picking it up consider where you buy it from.

Quote
"Because people are wonderful, we've had far more sales from this site than on Steam, because I mentioned we get a bigger cut that way. This is fantastic and was definitely the right thing to do for pre-orders.

The downside is, we look a bit limp on Steam. Our highest chart position was #38, just behind "Crusader Kings II: Norse Portraits DLC". This means people who don't already know about Gunpoint are unlikely to see it there, and it might hurt our chances of Valve promoting it - apparently they go largely on what's already selling well.

So today, the best way you can support Gunpoint is to buy it on Steam. If we can do well there, it could be a huge help."

Picked it up and while I think I will like it, it is unplayable at the moment... about 15-25 seconds in, the game gets EXTREMELY slow.. to the point where it is unplayable... everything is at a crawl... got through 2 missions, then just had to stop...
Definitely not my specs...
Also, don't see a way to change resolution or fullscreen/windowed mode, once you select one..

From the main menu choose ďChange Res (if things look too small)Ē.

Canít comment on the performance.  Iím 5-6 missions in and no problems yet.

I just finished the game and got my epilogue.  It generates based on your actions in the game.  No real spoilers but very funny.  The game is short (3ish hours) but oh so enjoyable.  Iím tempted to try again and go completely nonlethal.  All of my kills came from the very last mission when they ramped the difficulty way up.

Spoiler-ed as well in case you don't want to view it online or are scared of the nonexistent spoilers.

Spoiler for Hiden:
A case of crossed wires
5 dead. 9 injured. 20 jobs. $13,000. I've had better weeks.
They don't let me name names on this blog, but the person behind the hit I was investigating is dead now.
He played a dangerous game: insulting my hat.
The trigger man's dead. That would have felt good if I hadn't just taken a seven story body slam.
I don't know.
I guess I picked the least shitty of two incredibly shitty sides.
Maybe that doesn't matter. Maybe all that matters is that I now have the ability to kick down doors.
Either way, I think I need 10ccs of ketamine and a Columbo marathon.

Just an FYI in case anyone else gets the slomo version like me.
Had to go and change the properties on the EXE to run as admin. All slowness stopped at that point. I actually had fun playing for a little while tonight, but off to bed now..

Yeah, he deserves it for such an awesome game. Wish it were longer, though.

well that was short but fun:

A case of crossed wires

13 dead. 30 injured. 20 jobs. $13,000. The week echoed in my mind like a gunshot in an empty street..

They don't let me name names on this blog, but the person behind the hit I was investigating is probably being picked up by the East Point police about now.

I, er, may have killed more people than I actually avenged here.

The trigger man's dead. I thought that would feel good. It did.

I don't know.

I guess I picked the least shitty of two incredibly shitty sides.

Maybe that doesn't matter. Maybe all that matters is that I now have the ability to kick down doors.
