Our videos of The Deer God

The Deer God was released a bit more than a week ago and it is quice a nice surprise visually speaking. Even it's pixel art, the game looks truly good in motion, with nice lighting effects and great music (although some will argue it doesn't really fit the mood of the game). Unfortunately, it also has issues: game design can be broken at times when you get stuck because you're not big enough to reach a platform, only because you were supposed to have grown before reaching a spot (which can be hard if you die and respawn as a fawn...). There are also game breaking bugs, as when Davton and I had to give up after surviving 50 days in co-op because the environment had mostly disappeared (not to mention the 20/30 fps framerate we had to bear before that). Nothing that new updates won't fix, but until then, it can be pretty frustrating to lose time and get a game over screen that's not your fault. Some might also not enjoy the repetitiveness of the landscapes as they are generated randomly but it never kept us from playing. The bugs on the other hand...

    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (27 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (43 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (45 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (45 minutes ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (50 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And "many" isn't a specific number. There are many 8088s :D (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But the exponential rate of progress means that you don't have to go back too far to make that true. A lot of the progress here was done in our lifetimes. That's amazing. (1 Hour ago)
