Moebius Alpha Impressions Thread.....
« on: April 02, 2013, 02:30:20 PM »
Figured I'd throw this up since I'm fishing for details and might as well have a topic on it, heard bits and pieces on other forums about the Alpha, the general impressions I've gathered of the Alpha demo is that Malachi isn't the most likeable at first, the music is really good, the graphics are pretty clean though the animation needs work, and what story that is there is more detail-oriented and slow-burning.  A Youtube Let's Play of it would be nice if possible ;D

Jane has requested that footage not be shared at this point. I don't know if other details may be shared or not - it's best to assume not unless told otherwise. Of course, if you would like to become a backer, they're still accepting via PayPal...

At the "CSG Supporter" level, you have access to the backer forums, where the alpha is being discussed.
At the "CSG Member" level, you have access to the alpha.

I can't share my own impressions so far, as I've just downloaded the alpha. :)

Congratulations on finally being able to download something that may or may not exist. ;-)


Just think of it as Schroedinger's Alpha build...
In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Actually, it appears that we are allowed to reveal that there is an alpha build out there (honestly, I wasn't sure), but not say very much about it.

So, I'll say that I've seen it, and that it's clearly a Jane Jensen and Phoenix Online Studios game.

And I love the GK series and am very impressed with Cognition so far. So, take from that what you will.

I've played through the alpha, and I like it so far. It still needs some work, but I like the direction it's going - and the end (of the demo - still fairly early in the game, I believe) leaves me intrigued. :)

I have to concur with the assessment of Malachi Rector - he's not overly likeable on the surface, but I suspect he'll become more so as we get to know him better. He's very intelligent, and he knows it - he comes off as rather arrogant.

Actually, it appears that we are allowed to reveal that there is an alpha build out there (honestly, I wasn't sure), but not say very much about it.

Yeah... That's what took down the POStudios server over the weekend. Apparently lots of backers were eager to try it out. :P

I played through the alpha, and I liked the storyline and characters. Some obvious glitches though, but given that this is an alpha, I hope that these will be corrected.
