I wanted to let you all know, quite a few beta testers have played it already and they all had excellent performance. They said combat was very smooth and fluid and some of them even ran on Intel HD4000 laptops, which in NW10.5, was a disaster. So a good side-effect of the v8 engine in recent Chromium that's used in 13 alpha 6/7, is better optimizations for crap intel graphics!
This is a huge deal for all C2 devs who export to PC. Prior, even simple games with a few webgl effects would run like crap on Intel integrated graphics.
Also, holy cow, I wasn't expecting that RPS coverage!! I just do the normal thing looking at traffic to my blog this morning when waking up, and today it went to the moon.
Also RPS tend not to cover very niche indie titles so I wasn't expecting it.
But all I did was fire off an email, with a link to the Steam store and a key to invite them to try it. So I guess the author tried it and liked it.
