Yes, I liked it a lot. We were considering putting a button on th main menu which would take the player to a video tutorial. I tried to make a video tutorial with Fraps, but my voice sounded like a boring economics teacher which would certainly put everyone to sleep. But we know this is a pretty complicated game for first time players, and it takes a bit to get you head around it at first. So seeing a video like yours will be helpful for new players as well as enjoyable to watch. Thanks for taking the time to create it.

And if you want to create some more... please do!

As you might not know, I was asked by Arcen Games (the makers of AI:War, A Valley Without Wind and Tidalis) to make the official tutorial videos for AI:War (you can find them here).

Since then, I've improved both my "acting" and my technical equipment (real studio microphone, puff filter, proper soundcard, more advanced recording gear) so you could expect something of significantly better quality.

Those videos above are, tbh, rather "lazily" done. It's just a "hop into the game, record while playing without script". If I'd do a proper tutorial, I'd make a script and take my time to re-record and cut out parts that don't work (a lot of "err":s and "umm":s for instance) and similar.

If you need anything like that, send me a PM with your ideas.

I'll definitely talk to Shadow about that ASAP. Thanks!

I approve of more videos. Watching these got me to make the jump to buy this game.

I'll see what I can whip up. I might do something similar to "Let's Play" content on Drox, but I prefer to do this on non-beta titles with the glaring exception of Dwarf Fortress, which is perpetual pre-alpha :P

However, I'll wait a bit to see if Shadow wants any tutorials done by me. In that case, I'll refrain from flooding my channel with playthrough content just yet.

I think Drox has changed enough to warrant another overview video, so I'll be starting work on one of those as soon as I can. Will let you know when it's up.

I am someone who likes to gather information on games and not buy into them blind. These videos were the final thing to convince me to get Drox Operative.

I think all of Soldak's games could use more exposure.

To be frank, this holds true for almost every indie developer.
