Eight Days in Convoke is a physics-based arcade game that places you into the cockpit of an alien craft tasked with the abduction of unknowing human. Gently and thoughtfully apply thrust and rotation to your craft to counter gravity and fly through the noire themed levels. Avoid dangers such as military grade AA Missile Launchers, fuel stealing EMP Pylons, solid materials and the ever present threat of finite fuel. Pilot your way through 40 levels across 8 European countries, Abduct humans to progress and repeat levels in ever quicker completion times to unlock bonus stars. Master the levels, conquer the human race.

I edited the Controls and put the thrust as Space, then started the game. Found out that Space was already Abduct, So I tryed to put the controls back to what they were, I can't seem to move at all, and only thing I can seem to do is crash by using all the fuel by useing the Abduct key

Hi there.

I've never come across that bug but resetting the control scheme manually should fix any issues. Open your Eight Days in Convoke folder "C:\Program Files\Desura\Common\Eight Days in Convoke\data" (Desura Install) and open "config.dat" in notepad.

Replace what ever is in the file with;
"37,39,38,40"
(excluding quotation marks)

That should reset controls to default, hope that helps!

I was already pretty impressed with Fulmination's unique style of Missile Command-esque gameplay, but seeing as you're giving away 8DIC free this weekend, and 8DIC is pretty fun, I think I'm definitely going to grab Fulmination soon.

I've not been able to launch the game despite the updates. I get the initial little "Desura/Eight Days" splash screen, but then right as the main window comes up - "Unexpected error when launching the game", then crash to desktop.

I've tried verifying the files but no improvement. I am running a notebook with Windows XP 32-bit, dual core 2.5ghz, nVidia 9800M GTS, 2.5gigs ram.

I got the game cheap so it's not a big deal, but if there's anything anyone can think of that might help, let me know.

Version 3.12 is out with a few little fixes and improvements. Your auto-updater will notify you the next time you launch Eight Days in Convoke.

-Plasma orbs no longer crash the game if they drain all your fuel and you crash within range of one.
-Fixed a tiny visual bug in the house sprites.
-Smart missiles are now stopped by trees.
-Running out of fuel while in water or on it's surface now destroys your ship.
-A small indicator now appears above humans every few seconds to help you locate them.

As much as i'd love that to happen, Steam has a very high quality entry standard. I think only the best of the best manage to get onto it.
