It's running fine here on Win 8 64 so I can't see why it wouldn't on Win 7.

Did you try running in Windows XP Compatibility mode?

Also I activated and download my copy from Desura, if that makes any difference.


Thanks for the suggestion, but no luck with Compatibility mode. :/ I'm using a Desura copy as well. Tried re-downloading it in Desura, but that didn't help, either. Still no response from the developers.. damn.

Wait, so they added a beta for a game that anyone can get, at any time, for free? What the hell kind of a half-ass bonus is that?

It's not the beta (which everyone has to pay for), and it's not the free demo of the beta, but an extended demo version of the beta.

From the Driftmoon developers:
http://www.instantki...enlight-bundle/

Our friends at Groupees have put together a Build a Greenlight Bundle, featuring games that definitely deserve getting Greenlit on Steam. Today's special will be an extra special extended edition of the Driftmoon demo, which pretty much doubles the length of the demo. Currently the Groupees special is also the only way to see the game's full ending, before we release the final beta to our preorderers. We don't get a penny from the deal, but it's always nice that new people hear about Driftmoon.

Which one, Driftmoon? It their 'indie spotlight' to help promote the game. The developers aren't getting any money for it.

Probably not the best choice, especially to call it a bonus, because it may cause nerdrage backlash but honestly there's already a bunch of games cheap, plus you get La Mulana and Underrail with Desura keys and Steam keys if/when they get Greenlit no matter what, even if you spend 75 cents and get one game.

It's kind of hard to complain about 3 games for 75 cents. If they want to throw a demo in there to help an indie developer try and get some more attention, I'm fine with that.

A demo? Have to say, that is pretty lame, but considering how many bonuses this bundle has had, can't really complain.

Yeah I knew people here would say that. That's kind of why I went *sigh* when they did that. I know why they did it because they aren't getting paid and need the exposure.

It's a great little game that I really believe it and bought the alpha version early on and it has come long way. Also they went and allowed a lot more extra content in the Groupees demo.

But still, when all is said and done when you tell a bunch of cheapasses who are buying these bundies for pocket change that they get a non full version of a game as a "bonus" yeah they're not going to be happy.

Pretty much. I love Groupees though. I think I've only skipped one of their bundles (the Halloween one) since I've known about them. This is, to date, one of the best bundles they've put out, so it's really not a big deal to throw a demo in.

So they've done the demo thing again? They did that with the last bundle (with a game called Rico) and it was a pretty unpopular choice.

I don't have a problem with throwing a demo in (provided it isn't just the normal demo), but I don't like how it's a separate bonus tier - it should really be unlocked at the same time as an album or something else.

I thought Rico was an alpha not on Steam or Desura? I didn't think it was a demo.

They said that it's an extended demo.

INDIE SPOTLIGHT: DRM-FREE for PC/MAC/Linux. Special Groupees Alpha Build! Rico is an old school jump’n’run game! Run across the levels, jump over obstacles, climb mountains, explore caves, swim through water. Collect coins throughout each level. Avoid mines, acid pits and various deadly enemies along the way. Find upgrades to get abilities like high jump or wall climbing. Reach magic stones to activate checkpoints. Find and use weapons to combat enemies. Fly with a jetpack. Face off against enemies in epic boss battles. Find hidden areas. Hop on moving platforms. 4 difficulty levels to keep you challenged. If you like platformers, you’ll love Rico!

Where did you see that Rico was an extended demo? All I can see (and saw) is that it's an alpha build. Then again, if Groupees never offers updates to it, it's not much better than a demo.

I remember the dev saying (in the chat - he was in there for quite a while) that Groupees said that they didn't want the full game, but I'm not sure if he explicitly said that it was a demo - or whether I interpreted 'not the full game' as being a demo.

Uh, when the bundle is over?

They tend to keep adding and adding bonuses, especially with this bundle. Even if it's 75% music free is free and that's okay by me.

AKANEIRO: DEMON HUNTERS (CLOSED BETA)
Groupees Exclusive Closed Beta Access to all Bundle Buyers! Beta invite coming once bundle closes. Akaneiro: Demon Hunters is a unique Action-RPG adventure presented within a vivid and expressive hand-painted style world. Featuring narrative themes driven by the classic Red Riding Hood tale merged with Eastern Folklore. Discover fantastic locales, meet bizarre characters and hunt ancient demons, all set to the backdrop of late Edo period Japan.

*Edit: This game is by Spicy Horse which is the Chinese software developer that did Alice: The Madness Returns.

TL;DR for the below is it's a closed beta for a game that will eventually be F2P. He's working to try to get one last non-beta bonus game in the bundle still.

so new bonus added

What does closed beta mean?

Jonny Cappuccino
7:24 PM
sometimes devs allow anyone to participate in a beta
just request and they send you a key/invite
closed means the public isn't invited

Paul
7:25 PM
We don't get the full game of Akaneiro?

Jonny Cappuccino
7:26 PM
mind you, i didn't source this bundle
but from what i understand Akaneiro will eventually be released as a free game

Paul
7:26 PM
Free or free to play?

Jonny Cappuccino
7:26 PM
sorry, think free to play
but a bit unclear to me
this is Shifty's bonus

Paul
7:27 PM
So it's like Dota 2 then? Lots of keys given out but no premium content?

Jonny Cappuccino
7:28 PM
reluctant to say exactly
for now, u get to play a game that no one else can
and it's fun

Paul
7:28 PM
Well as long as it's finishable w/o the need to pay

Three people! I think this is one of the better bundles Groupees have thrown together. Super low entry fee, pick what you want and good bonuses. I'd wanted to try La-Mulana for a while and was pretty shocked to see it as a bonus. If they want to keep throwing me even more bonuses, I'll take 'em.

La Mulana and Salvation Prophecy are all but certain to get Greenlit. Not entirely sure on the others but Tsel you should come around to the ways of Desura. It's really not bad. ;)

The next bonus is also supposed to have a Mac version FYI.
