Having looked at the demo on youtube, some English needs to be tidied up a bit:

"Remember everything I've teached you" should be: "Remember everything I've taught you"

"to save her and save the humanity" should be: "to save her and save humanity", although: "to save her and humanity" sounds better!

Probably needs someone to proof read the entire text of the game to catch things like this, if you're going to make a polished game like this in English, best polish the English text as well

Nice! English lessons . Excuse me, why is it humanity and not the humanity?

I have nothing to be with the game, but I always try to learn a bit of english.

Difficult to explain, as a native English speaker it's one of those sentences that just doesn't 'sound' correct! I think it's because 'humanity' can have two meanings:

1. Humanity to refer to the whole of the human race:
"I'm going to wipe out humanity from the face of the Earth" said the evil Alien!

2. Humanity referring to the act being kind:
"He treated the people with the humanity they deserved"

So it's using 'the' before 'humanity' that changes its meaning so 'the humanity' is not referring to 'humanity' as in the actual human race, but a 'quality' of the human race like kindness.

So if any English teachers are reading this, please comment and correct me if needed, but treat me with 'humanity'

Well at least you can understand English enough to translate it into very acceptable English, more than I can say for my Spanish

I think it is because "humanity" refers to an abstract unquantifiable entity.

The game would need a slight tweaking. The main character should be invincible for obligatory 3 seconds after he looses a life. Otherwise it acts unfair and I usually loose all my lives at one place instantly.

OK, same question as for Alarcity.

Is it physical OR digital? By that I mean if I buy the digital version I can play on Xmas day. If I want the CD for the collection do I get a download as well or do I have to a) wait for the CD to arrive some time in the new year or b) buy both versions so I can play the download while I wait for the CD to arrive?

I'd like to order one or the other tomorrow.

Thanks.

[EDIT] Never mind, I don't think I want to spend nearly €30 for the physical delivery so I don't need to worry about this choice

THIS!!

Or reset the enemies, or something! I just had a play of the demo and on the first section, getting to and up the first ladder was a major challenge. If you die the Zombies don't reset so there's a high chance you will lose all of your lives by immediately spawning back straight on top of a Zombie.

After plenty of retries I did eventually get into the castle only to be stupid and get caught by some green stuff dripping from the ceiling. That I can handle, a game doesn't need to be easy, but I didn't lose just one life. I lost them all because I died again, repeatedly by the same drip before I had a chance to move. Thats just nuts (or difficult for the sake of being difficult if you prefer)

Based on this I won't order the game. Getting in before the 15th so the name goes in the credits is not really important to me. The game looks and sounds great so if I see that this will be addressed in some form I'll be happy to buy the game. Let's hope so

The same here. Please solve this problem and I will buy it then. Or release it together with a source code and I will solve it for myself
