So far, everything in this game looks horrible. That is my opinion and it is easily provable if you look at the presented material from an objective, non-biased point of view. However, that is totally okay for an alpha version of a game presented in a beta version of an engine. It can grow and get better and you seem confident that what you are doing here will get better or at least reach a state to be mediocre enough for a widespread release. However, there is confidence and then there is "in less than 36 hours it will be staring in IndieDB's Indies of the year awards, we have passed up games like minecraft, mount and blade, and amnesia, We have made rankings all the way up to rank 4 in the world, not quite able to pass up Five Nights at Freddies, This goes to show what is possible with reloaded, If you all would like to watch this game fly off like a rocket on indieDB and also on steam.
You have passed up minecraft, mount and blade and amnesia...in the popularity rating of IndieDB...I have too,just didn't tell anyone. Everyone can, you don't even need content for that. You give yourself neither as humble nor selfaware in the way you promote this... qualitites you usually find among indie developers.
Colosso has the attitude not to let anyone discourage you in what you are doing no matter how awful it might be but I find that point of view extremely harmful for selfgrowth and introspective.

Clicks generating title. You get the same from boulevard-media and clickbait. Sensationalist titles like this will only generate hostility and bad reactions towards your game.
Quote: "IndieDB page blew up and everyone loved the idea and concept,"
Eh, not really...there is little feedback on your indie DB page and some of these comments seem (to me) like they are your pals commenting anyway.
Quote: "It just goes to show that anything is possible with reloaded if you put your mind to it."
Look, I know you want to tell us that you can raise a lot of internet popularity with a reloaded game. (Some people care for that while I find it completely trivial... I know I need to advertise my games eventually...but that still has some time
) thats cool, but you do make it sound like you are developing a game superior to the ones we make and we should look up to your project... now I know that is not your intention, but other users might not.
Quote: "Well I have high standards for the product we are working on, and we are going to put a lot of hours into it,"
Exactly! You need to tell us that you are going
to make this a great game. Not make it seem like it already is
Quote: "I also have spread this game to 20 of my youtube buddies from when I was doing youtube, I also have a steam concept page, the game is also posted on multiple gaming promotional sites, as well as my personal fb, I used to be marketer for a reason, I built up the proper contacts I needed in my time doing youtube. and now those contacts are paying off. They are promoting my game, just as I promoted there products and gave them attention."
You could have a future in someones marketing-department. But seriously! Just wait until you have like 3-4 screenshots that show a close-to-finished level. That way you might get more people to come back to your project.
Quote: "Sure I could of just asked my uncle to move me out there and let me live the life in vegas like any normal 21 year old would do,"
I don't know any 21 year olds who'd like to do that
Quote: "Instead I would rather wait to use that contact, In the future I may need $10,000 or more to promote my game to even more contacts. Sure any man can make a game good or bad, but can he sell that game? I know when the time comes and after long hours of development mine time spent will pay for it self."
Don't openly tell people that you are going to bribe folks to market/advertise your game. Also don't tell them that your uncle would give you 10 grant for that. ...makes you seem spoiled and incapable of making your own money. Just saying.
Quote: "Not sure why they hired you only for you to harass and cause defamation to other peoples doings. this post has been passed to meash, and meash has sent it to the others, when they see this I have a question, Is Wizard of ID a fully employed member of TGC bound by contract? or just a Third party provided media?"
Its his opinion. Regardless of his relationship with TGC, using this to make him "shut up" would be a low-blow and I believe to know him well enough to tell you that it won't work.
Quote: "As anyone now seeing this would listen to what he has to say, no matter if right or wrong,"
He is right and he has the higher authority...so far he is right... you can always make a great game to prove him wrong OR market some substandart junk to the indie-bunch. Both is possible at this point.
If my post seems hostile to you...you'd have to deal with it but it is my opinion and I worded it in what I find to be a civil tone. I don't have any problem with you, Shawn, nor do I know you... I even hope that your game will end up being all that you promise! I wish you the best luck with your further development aswell, just find that what you have made so far isn't good. Pirate Myke and smallG are talented users though, and if they are involved I'm sure something will come out of this.
