Gentrieve 2 is a "Metroid"-style 3D action game featuring completely random & customizable worlds. The year is 3080. Mass Generators are creating everything, everywhere. However, thieves often steal Mass Generators in hopes of creating robot armies & fortresses. Thieves are terrible programmers, though, and their creations become uncontrollably hostile & fortresses wildly convoluted. It is your job to clear out these fortresses & return the faulty Mass Generators. Be warned, when the Mass Generator is taken offline, the fortress will soon implode!

Can I download the .exe of the installer to my computer or do I have to install it with the desura client ?

Late reply but, yes you can install it without desura.

i am not a smart man.
after discovering that some of the repair-stations are in fact upgrade-stations, the seemingly diabolical level of difficulty turned out to be balanced just right.
and now i'm in love <3

There are repair stations, with 3 wrenches, that you can keep re-visiting. Then, there are single wrench upgrade areas to get more maximum health :)

i can't launch the game through desura, as the exe location is set to % LAUNCHER_EXE% (on linux, that is).
launching by manually executing the script works as intended, so maybe you could review the desura-package.

that being said, i really like the game, the idea of playing through countless different iterations of metroid prime pleases me =) although i have yet to generate a world where i don't get stuck after one boss, the difficulty is quite insane ;) but alas, off to a new world, off to a new try!

Are you guys using the open-source client Desurium? The Desura linux client isn't supported anymore, if I recall correctly...

either switching to desurium or your proper response fixed the issue, great, thank you!
another question: is there a reason for putting the environments etc. in a visible folder?
personally, i'd be more happy for them to be in .gentrieve2 or even .phr00t/gentrieve2

Any chance of autosaves after getting items, maybe as a seperate file? It's really annoying to have to trudge all the way back to a save point just to ensure that the last 15 minutes of play aren't a waste.

@ChrisRennie I'll also try to get Y inversion in the next update Oct 28 2014, 10:02pm
@ChrisRennie ahh then I assume you mean the gameplay is slow? Have you tried putting points into Agility, which can really speed you up? Oct 28 2014, 10:01pm
Updated @jmonkeyengine to support the @oculus Rift SDK 0.4.3, now with Direct HMD support in Windows! T.co Oct 28 2014, 9:39am
@ChrisRennie odd, we get hundreds of FPS. What kind of video card do you have? It is very early alpha, so all the options are not in yet. Oct 27 2014, 8:55pm
