Kill Your (Indie) Darlings II

Posted on October 17, 2016 in Computrons Gaming

Continuing my complaints about games that are better than 99% of the garbage out there.

Duskers: So, Duskers is super-cool, right? It has a command-line interface, and works from an overhead map. It’s like the motion tracker part of Alien, only you control drones! Sweet, right?

Duskers betrays itself in a really important way. It is completely unsafe to do this without zooming in on an individual drone and operating it manually. The game basically kills the nicest things about it, by demanding fidgety twitching.
