Seeing this name under the developer tag is the only reason I haven't preordered yet. It seems like the PC port is being made by a tiny budget developer whose greatest achievement to date is a Jelly Belly game on the PS2.

I'll happily buy it once it is released and confirmed to be a good port, but I don't want to get an unplayable mess like Oddbox or Devil May Cry 3.

Or are my worries unfounded? Have these devs made something decent in their career? As I recall the PC version of Sega Allstar Racing was pretty good, but it was made by a different team.

Devil's Details also handled the PC port of Virtua Tennis 4, which was a fine port.

They didn't actually develop that Jelly Belly game. They just ported the engine for it from PC to PS2.

Judging by their work so far, this studio are actually port specialists (mostly low-profile stuff, up to now, aside from VT4), so I wouldn't worry much.

Actually, that was Sumo Digital. Devil's Details doesn't even have VT4 listed on their site for past projects. Nor do they even have Sonic Generations on there.

It seems like it's more of a mistake than anything else. Especially since the game's listed as "Strategy, Casual." Take a gander at GreenManGaming's listing: http://www.greenmangaming.com/games/adventure/sonic-generations/

Lists the game appropriately and that it's developed and published by Sega.

The credits say Devil's Details did the pc port of VT4, someone else linked to the games credits on youtube. It was definately them.
Sumo Digital "developed" the PC, 360 and wii versions apparently...

Well, Steam doesn't actually have a "platformer" genre (odd when you consider that it manages to have seperate catagories for indie, casual and family), but I guess action still would suit it better than strategy.

Bombard them with emails and youtube channels posts, as you can see they are ignoring the post on their youtube channel so that isn't really a good sign.

Wow, that's an immature demand.

For one thing, they may or may not be allowed to publicly discuss their work on the game. This is not uncommon with portwork. There is no reason to spam them.

I had never noticed that until now. Super Meat Boy is listed as casual, indie since there is no platformer genre. Listing that game as casual is a mistake lol.


But yeah strategy is just flat out incorrect. I suppose waiting until the game is confirmed to be a good port isn't too bad. Since the pre-order bonus is not all that good. I can already play those two old games whenever I want.

They should put it on Adventure, I guess.
