    I find it both amusing and very fortunate that a couple days ago I was watching Risk of Rain being played on Delicious Cinnamon's livestream, going "Omg, Risk of Rain? What is thing and how do I get more of it?" and then I wake up today to find it just hanging out on this forum as a Chucklefish game.

      this game is so much fun. I thought "well let's check out the demo then, if tiy likes it, it's probably good" BAM one hour gone in a blink of an eye :)

      backed it and looking forward to it.

      edit: ohhhh forgot my question: what kind of other character classes can we expect?

          Welcome to the family guys I'm glad I see risk of rain here I was watching the livestream where tiy said that if he liked the game he would help publish it.

          Do you guys have any plans for post release content? I love how the game looks so far miner seems like my type of guy, being able to combo ablilies for maximum effectiveness

              Heya devs! Welcome to the fold, as I said earlier in my thread welcoming you folks. :) I saw Tiy play your game and it looks NASTY. :rofl:

              Are you going to have any specialized range classes? Maybe try some crowd control characters?

                    Yay, congrats on hooking up with chucklefish! Yay, official forums!!

                    I started playing the alpha and was totally hooked. Actually I still prefer the alpha over the demo even though it is easier(that's why i play on hardcore) but I have a problem recording it. I get terrible fps with every program I use to record. Is this a known issue or can it be fixed?

                      Hi, watched the crazy stream where this deal sort of came to life. I'm so happy that the 2 indie games I'm most looking forward to are now kind of together.

                      Now to the actual question: As Risk of Rain is now a Chucklefish published game, do you need Steam Greenlight to get on Steam, or is it now 100% sure that Risk of Rain is released on Steam when it's finished?
                      Also, do Kickstarter backers who purchased the full game, also get a Steam key?

                      Keep up the good work. Really looking forward to the game!
                      • I definitely just did a playthrough of your beta and died at the teleporter ( I was low on health to boot), but it was awesome. I'm stoked about this game now, can't wait to start getting updates, kudos to you guys.

                        Oh and I love the atmosphere, and the composer is awesome!

                          Hey joey! I've noticed you've been following us for a long time :). That's something we noticed, and its a GameMaker issue. It MIGHT be fixed, however, once we update our GameMaker.
                          “For the other anons and any other people looking to record things: Try Open broadcaster instead. It ought to work just fine. It’s also free and compresses your videos in well-implemented and high-quality methods that don’t take up 10 gigs per minute! EVERYONE WINS! \o/ “

                          It's not guaranteed to be on Steam, but it definitely increases the chance! If we have the option, we'd like to offer a choice between Steam or non-Steam for backers.

                            Been following Risk of Rain since it was first shown on /agdg/ while back, good to see it grow and also be published by Chucklefish. I wish you good luck with your game, and you can bet I'll be playing it.

                            For a question: What was the most challenging thing to overcome when coding your game?
                            did you just like make game

                              Thanks hopoo! Man, I hope you guys can fix it. I tried Open Broadcaster and I couldn't get it to work, maybe I'll try again.

                              I'm so beast at this game! I want to upload high level hardcore gameplay, hope I can get around this :cool:

                              EDIT: Back to Open Broadcaster. It looks like this is only for live streaming? Can I not just record videos to upload after??

                              EDIT 2: Ok, now I see. Sorry I'm slow sometimes :zzz:

                                Well, not to me because I don't use twitter. But I suppose that a lot of people do. Would still like to see it mentioned on the main site. They still don't have a link to the game on their main site yet either. Which I understand it was only announced a day ago, but with the kickstarter ending soon it seems like it should be top priority.
