I just wanted to throw my hat into the feedback mix. This is a great game. I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

As someone who has worked on games myself I fully understand the limitations of budget that kept the voice acting out of it. It's really a shame as I think that could have pushed this game up to another level. I hope that you guys do well enough with this one to secure the ability to do more and maybe fix that in Kaptain Brawe 2. :)

I was just browsing the Steam demos and happened upon this forum. It is so nice to see such positive comments floating around instead of mindless criticism. Having a developer join the discussion is icing on the cake!

My thanks to everyone for their praise and encouragement of smaller studios like Cateia Games.

@kspes, you should have a Steam forum moderator bump you over to a developer account. Your participation in these threads encouraged me to purchase the game, if only to show my support. :)

I like to support good games like this. The 68 metacritic almost killed my getting this one, but the user comments changed that.

I usually like metacritic, but think ther emight be a bias against some older style games.

I'm not at all sure I'll mind the lack of voice acting - it might be an improvement. So, I'm going to pick it up.

In this case it looks like they only found four published reviews of the game... since they use a simple average, the one bad review skewed the ranking of the game unfairly.

IMHO Metacritic should switch to using the median or something. It especially hurts in a case like this where the game is not as widely reviewed.

I consider it a feature that there is no voice acting. Most of the time voice talent in games is terrible and detracts from the game. The newer Monkey Island games are for me killed by the terrible and incessant voice acting. I much prefer the text and the voices I can imagine in my own head.

We need Zapp Brannigan's voice actor Billy West.

I looked at the metacritic score and nearly bailed, but after reading these posts I've decided to pick the game up. (I write sci-fi comedy novels and there's little enough in that genre!)

@Kradath: lol, everyone says Kaptain Brawe should have Zapp's voice :D

I finished it today, bought it on the Mac App Store. I had fun with it, the story kept me playing and it didn't bother me that this version has no voice. I liked the art design. Very good old school adventure. I hope you make another game, maybe a sequel, soon.

Just finished it. Pretty good game, but a couple things really bothered me.

1. Luna's face and posture just look too fake, like a doll. (nice job on her "walking away" animation though :) )

2.Why did that machine explode instead of creating strong-willed pacifists?

Or The Tick's :)

Animated (Townsend Coleman) or live-action (Patrick Warburton)? They both seem workable to me.

Yup, either one would be fine :)

This brings up a good point, have you ever considered making DLC or something that offers voice acting? And for that matter ever consider having a casting call for internet voice actors [since they'd be cheaper] to try out for roles?

At this point, it would be too late. And Voice Acting DLC will not be received well in any case. DLC is supposed to be content, anything less would be received exceptionally poorly.

Are there any plans for a sequel though?

I may be showing my age here, but I think back in the day it wasn't unknown for a game to get an expansion that just added voices to the mix, hell, could add a little extra content as well. Just throwing in my two cents.

Me too. It really is sad how we let metacritic brainwash us into not trying new things unless they score 80 or above.

I actually put off on trying The Secret World because of the low score, glad I didn't. Just like Kaptain Brawe, it was unjustly reviewed.
