I didnt get the game through steam nor play through steam, and I still had a savegame bug.

I had this issue one machine where I had installed to the default location.

The game didnt save characters properly on one of our PCs (possibly due to the game trying to save in the program files folder?). Reinstalling to a different location fixed the issue. I recommend exiting the game after a few level ups just to see that saving works properly. It's annoying to lose a lvl 20 character.

Has anyone played this one at all? Will definitely be picking it up during Steam's coming winter sale.

Boyd is simply wrong about one of those, and the others arent much of an issue.

- It only takes 2 or 3 steps to build a tower on the PC, depending on whether you use the number hotkey or go through the menu.

- Having to run back on the crystal is a non-issue and set in the menu (infinite build time on/off). It's always off on the insane difficulty level (you get about a minute to build and repair towers).

- Aiming as a ranged character is pretty trivial.

EDIT: He is right about the equipment menu though. It shows that the game wasnt developed for PC there. I work around this inconvenience by managing my equipment in between maps, the time limits doesnt leave me with enough time to do it during gameplay anyway.

That's pretty much all there is to the game. It's simple fun if you enjoy mindless slaughter, but wont do much for you if you feel like more intellectual pursuits
