Sure I'm too late to the party for a promo code but damn, that's an instabuy from me.
Thanks guys. What's Rec?

You're not too late; we'll wait to hear from a couple more people and then do another PM promo code race to redemption.

Rec is a Spanish horror film, (remade in the states as Quarantine, which was awful in comparison.) and is possibly the scariest and best zombie film I have ever seen. (once tou get past the fact its spanish with english subtitles.)

It's a found footage kinda thing. A lot of the film is lit by the light from the video camera. Which is why I think the trailer for Affliction reminded me of it

More promos you say! Most excellent! Hopefully I shan't be asleep for those but either way, this looks great.

I'll send another batch tomorrow afternoon (early evening in the UK so Maniacfive will have a fighting chance). Quarantine was terrible, had no idea it was a remake. Sounds like I'll have to take a look at Rec.

In Affliction your device is the gun, so the only way it would make sense, perspective-wise, would be for the top of the gun to be centered and taking up the whole bottom half of the screen. We can't come up with any aesthetic or gameplay benefits to including the gun on screen, other than the fact that other FPSs include it.

Sent out a promo code to Ghostz, Maniacfive, and sawyer4325. May the fastest PM-checker win! If you aren't the first to redeem, stick around...we'll keep sending them, and we'll also be posting leftovers in the launch thread on 5/31.

Hey could you make the sensitivity higher on the aiming controls? I have to flip my device so I don't see the game myself to fully turn. Also, I know you've gone this way, but I still think a joystick would be great. Would love to see the gun too while holding it, but okay I understand that you wanted a gun's perspective.

Thanks.
There's something like a promo code left?

My thanks to Naquatic for the promo race. I won. whoop!

Gotta say this is really good. I've only played a handful of matches, but its very atmospheric, did find myself spinning around in my chair to check behind me. Although I can't see myself playing this one in bed Can the non gyro controls be enabled on Gyro capable devices or is it an automatic thing on boot?

I for one really like the reloading mechanic, it simple enough and can be done quick, but takes you out of firing position just long enough for things to get tense if you have to reload in the heat of things. A couple of times I've convinced myself that theres a zombie with glowing red eyes in front of me... before realising its the crosshairs. Not often a game actually makes me see stuff that isn't there!

I've not played on my iPad yet but I'm quite looking forward to that. As it stands this is really fun. And even if i had not won the code I don't think I'd have had any regrets dropping some coin on this. Its got a real pick up and play quality in addition to the creepiness.

Thats said... there's always room for improvement right... I'd like to see some more variation in the zombies, bigger smaller, female male, etc etc. No need to go Zombie Flick levels of zombie madness, but just a few different looks.

Thanks again for the code guys!

You're very welcome! The joystick is enabled automatically on non-gyro devices. We can see about making it an option in subsequent updates. More zombie variation is on our list as well.
