Editors Didn't Like

  • Individual stories a blur, Transitions freeze every single time
  • Overly dependent on luck, Punishment for death is too harsh, Deck building doesn't feel empowering, Combat is a swing and a miss
  • The challenge of strength is a jerk. Luck is fickle, Developer
  • Some mission and cards rely too heavily on luck, Dying at the end of a long, challenging mission can be frustrating
