I died 4 times now at the first encounter. First one, no big deal, had no idea what I was supposed to do. Thinking of it a bit more, it is bad design. Throw a player into a situation without any hints, where the wrong decision under pressure ends the game.
Made some progress with running away, only to die do the tentacles when the screen suddenly switched and the camera angle with it. I was tapping to move at that moment and ran straight into a tentacle, thank you.
The above wouldn't be too bad if there were a proper checkpoint right before that encounter.
But no, I have to redo like 5 minutes of discoveries every time.
To top it off, the redoing would be faster if you could actually run.
Real shame, because what I saw so far is amazing and I want to see the story continue.
Get that sorted out quick, please?
Yup, given up because the time it takes me to reset my skills and finish reading a whole load of arm stuff is rendered useless when that darn alien kills me. So frustrating! They are not going to sort it out though given that ep two is 3 times later than original estimates - looks like they have abandoned this. Ah well!
