That's really good to hear, since the #1 point of criticism I keep seeing is the "dated" look. I'm sure more people would give your games a try in the first place, if you had a bit more eye candy to bait them.

However, personally, I think your games look rather amazing, given the size of the team behind them, especially in terms of texture work and basic creature design (I love the Scarabus Blaster, for example), so I hope you guys won't depart too much from the current style. And whoever is doing your textures, they really deserve a pat on the back. They're doing great things with even the more low-poly models, in my opinion.

As to helping the pretty, I'm pretty sure the next patch (1.007) will have a few texture modifications (not the monsters), some cool new effects (lightning springs to mind), and a few minor UI tweeks. Along with the other things Shadow has worked on, this patch should definitely be worth the download!

Well, Star Ruler is finally coming to Steam as well...so I'd like to think that maybe, just maybe, Din's will also be allowed at some near point.

It is kind of amazing how far they've come at this point, given the odd propensity of leaving money and further marketshare on the table with resect to Indies and whatnot.

When I see a room full of barrels exploding in flame, as the entire ceiling is falling and an oversized Boss shaman is flinging poison clouds, with the screen shaking from critical hits, that is a bit more zing and pow than I can handle.

(I wouldn't mind a few more bottle images, to keep those potion strengths in mind.)

Nothing new so far. I'm planning on asking them again after the expansion is done.

I can turn your download back on. The easiest way is to email me from the email address that you bought the game with.

If you get Steam achievements, find a way for us old-timers to get credit for our past deeds without redoing them (and not give free achievements to the rest)

Well it doesn't look like we are going to get Din's Curse on Steam any time soon as they said no again a few days ago.

Unbelievable. Valve was once the soul of PC Gaming, and now they seem to specialize in sapping the vitality from the soul of PC gaming.
