Hmmm. I suppose I can give them the benefit of the doubt on this one. At least the main game is free to play.

Im still a little bitter with insom. Embarassed

Very true.


At least now they are making it obvious they just want a way to dig into your pockets.

Im sure that really cool rocket ship everyone will want cant just be earned in the game.

Start buying those FB credits!



I know. I am being too critical. The truth is its neat seeing them go down this path. Makes me kind of wish THEY did Global Resistance.

and so continues the fall of insomniac as one of THE top devs. Being able to crank out AAA titles on a yearly basis, then after that they slowly went downhill bit by bit after that. Now it doesnt seem like they arent even trying to come back from that.

Not really, its just strange seeing the developer of the RAC, Resistance and spyro to take their time to develope a Facebook game.. atleast that is how I feel about it. Thinking

Remember that they're still working on Overstrike this whole time, people.

Remember they had that "Insomniac Click" thing to do facebook games? They got rid of that name, but the fact is that it's still a separate little subsection. It's not like they're suspending R&C and Overstrike in order to do facebook games.

I shake my head at any of you who think this is showing a downward trend of Insomniac or something as silly as that. You wouldn't be saying that if they started developing awesome Android and iPhone games on the side, I guarantee it. You'd be praising them for making awesome games, but since it's facebook and follows some facebook cliches, you just assume it'll be farmville: outer space edition and terrible.


@Six-I'm not sure if they've explicitly stated this, but they've implied that you'll be able to play the full game without paying. As far as I know, the only incentive for payment is the energy system where you can only do so much at once before having to wait for your energy to recharge.

It's one of those micro-transactions games. You play the game for free but need to pay for things like extra jewels, power supplies, etc. You can do quite a lot without paying anything.

It's very IG, a bit redolent of Ratchet and Clank. In-game music is really good.

I hate Facebook Apps. They always want to have access to all your info.... I mean why does some game dev need to know everything about you? I don't mind the complete strangers I give access to all my pages like 6th nation facebook members . I love you thats how you make friendships. but why does 20 questions need to see pics of my kid? The thing about computer games I don't like is I am limited to a small screen and in front of my computer. I much prefer a huge screen and a easy chair. These little games might be the future of gaming because people can play them in short time frames idk if I like that. Hey if Insomniac makes a boatload of money that enable it to make good games like the FOM or RE2 Im all for it. I always felt like they were trying to save $$ or something with RE3.

I feel like they wanted to be done with Resistance after 2 and were forced to make a 3. That's what it felt like to me.



But for Outernauts, the whole newest Full Moon Show was dedicated to talking about it. If you want more info, give that a listen. They've stated that it won't be one of those annoying games that stealth posts things without asking you if you want to, which is a relief.

Every time you do something it asks you first if you want to share it, so you do get the final say.

I consider android/iphone games barely above facebook games, so no Id be saying the same thing. and when I talk about the downward spirial that is IG, i am not just talking about this one game, but their games in general

I have only seen improvement in thier games, So I dont know what you're talking about. The only fault they have is not knowing how to end their games, Im looking at you R2 and 3..

Also not neceserally saying that this is showing a downward trend, it is strange seeing a know big named puplisher focusing on something as stupid as a FB App..

If there's money in it for them, they will do it. They're a business, after all. It's just whether or not people think they did a good job of it and like it.

Well, one of the things IG seems to be doing lately is trying to reach audiences they haven't made games for and/or didn't exist years ago. They can now try making games for Xbox 360 players and Facebook users, which is something they've never done before. They're a game developer trying to make games.

Still, I don't see how this facebook game, is in anyway gonna reach an audiance from anyone. I have seen people play FB games, they don't care who made it, its just a time waster when on the FB messenger.

The avarage fb user, wont have the patience to google the name of the developer.

They don't need to know who made it to spend money on it. That's all IG needs them to do. Getting your name out there isn't important for Facebook games. They're designed to attract people by looking entertaining (YMMV) and being very Skinner Boxy.

kinda sad though, turning to facebook games for profit, that does seem like a step backwards.

Sorry guys. I know a couple of you have sent me invites for this game but...well...just like an Insom game, this P.O.S doesn't work at all for me. It freezes and locks up all the time.


Ya know? Insom should make a game called Frozen.
At least then they would be advertising the only thing they seem to be able to produce.
