Anyone try this yet?

I can't seem to get the controller app to see the game on my PC. They are both on the same wifi network.

I did see a developer post that there was a problem with routers that don't use the standard 192.168.blah.blah, but mine does, so that's not the problem.

I absolutely love the concept behind this, though, especially the aspect of coming across information and missions that you can keep secret or share with the group.

I'm really itching to play this, but just can't get it going.

Thanks for the quick response!

Turns out the problem WAS that my router was using a different IP address setup. Changed it to the standard 192.168.x.x and everything works just fine. I forgot I had just recently swapped out my xfinity router, so dummy moment on my part, hehe.

I only had a chance to play the game for about 20 minutes by myself, but I can already tell that this is going to be amazing!

I'll post more once I've played some proper sessions.

Very glad that worked, Wizard_Mike. Our apologies for the trouble! We have an incoming patch that'll compensate for that as well. In testing as we speak.

So glad you're enjoying it so far!

All the best,

Hi Wizard_Mike,

Just want to let you know an update for your connectivity issue is now live on Google Play. Will fix it without needing any more router changes. iOS update coming as soon as Apple approves it!

Cheers,

game works, but camera is tricky with 4 players. (can it be splitted like in the newer lego coop games?)

and also there are a few points where it potentially bugs and stops.

like spoiler alert:
when you listen to the enemy talking, when you are supposed to save a guard, and when you are opening a gate.

restarting is quite annoying and time consuming, but its early access so its ok.

(took 4 attempts for 4 people to do the first part)
no skipping in the start is also annoying.
please add the possibility to skip cutscenes...like a vote to skip thingy...

You get used to the camera following the one in front eventually (but split would be awesome)

great idea, can potentially become an awesome game with time
