Here is the video to follow up the follow-up episode! An almost hour-long interview with Stuart Mackereth, the senior programmer for the game Cyril Cyberpunk. He also going to release his game Discrepant, which you can find out more at http://www.discrepantgame.com.

 

I figure this is the sort of video that will be hit or miss with people, it depends on how interested you are in the original game or the process that went into creating it. The first half of the interview is about Cyril Cyberpunk, the second half is about his upcoming game along with some minor movie discussion at the end.

 

The audio quality is a little rough on Stuart's end, but I have no regrets, seeing as how if I wasn't paranoid and recorded him on my end, nothing would have been saved in the first place.

 

Another video coming this month, hopefully more!

When I first saw the thumbnail I was like "GABEN??!?!?!"
Yeah I think that interview would get a few more views, huh.

Then you should do that interview. Gaben interviewed by Ross Scott... I think the entire universe would probably watch it.

You know, you might make moon gaming about playing a game with a developer of the game.

It would be a bit like the director's commentary on some DVDs. Hey Ross, I think this is something the fans might like to see!

Discrepant is now being sold on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/491180/Discrepant/

 

I bought it a couple of months ago when it was released as an early access title but it was very buggy and badly optimized at the time so I didn't play it for long. At some point since then the developer apparently deemed it finished enough to, without much fanfare, take it out of early access mode and sell it as a full-fledged product even though it's also apparently still being worked on. I still find the current version of it to be borderline unplayable though. It's a shame because I think there's something interesting hidden away here but I can't recommend it to anyone in its current state unless you really want to support the developer.

I don't know, from the screenshots alone the game straight up looks... kinda bad.

The really low price tag is a huge red flag. To me it says that they are not confident about their game at all. These screenshots aren't helping either, it looks borderline unfinished. Like they couldn't even be bothered to texture things properly, so half the game ends up looking pretty flat, because there was no real detail put into much of anything.

 

This whole game looks pretty soulless to me, that's the vibe I'm getting anyway. It just doesn't look finished to me, I don't think I could justify paying for something like this, from the screenshots alone, unless it was mindblowing or something.

 

Also jesus christ what the hell is going on with this horrendous grey glow.

WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK THAT THIS LOOKS APPEALING IN ANY WAY.

 

And why the hell is everything purple. Jesus christ tone down that color filtering, this looks depressing.

You got drab ass white walls, with flat poorly detailled textures, plus that horrible grey fog.

 

DID SOMEONE OPEN BLENDER FOR THE FIRST TIME, THESE ARE GREY WALLS, GREY.

THEY COULDN'T BE ANY BLANDER, IF YOU WANTED THEM TO.

I feel like fucking Gordon Ramsay, now I know how he feels.

This game has no art style, this is as bland as it gets.

What the hell kinda mood is this scene trying to accomplish? PURPLE? IS PURPLE EVEN A MOOD??

Did the art team watch too much Eric Andre or something?

Wow... this is lazy. Here's proof that this game is a rip off. Please avoid it, save your money, buy a real game.

I'm just not sold on this game at all, and all these red flags scream UNFINISHED. Why would anyone buy this game??

 

I understand that game development is hard, but come on, this is stupid, I know that they are never going to finish this game, let's be real.

 

EARLY ACCESS WAS A MISTAKE - Jesus. Early Access? More like EARLY ASS.
