Re: Steam?

Steamworks is primarily used to add an achievement system to a game right? If I do not need / want achievements in my game, then I can do without Steam. Steam is a distribution platform much like the others, but its methods can be a bit draconian.

Re: Maps Later ?

Backers who want physical goods are paying to make them and ship them. A smart developer (and Josh is a genius) will have already got the costs of making and shipping included in the pledge price. I am sure costs is not a that major a issue, unless very few want them then perhaps it will drive costs...

What if the developer under-represented the requirements? What if I can load up the game but it lags/skips/pauses so bad I would want to ex...

Re: Graphics

Of course yes. High end graphics can be those HDR/Bloom explosions for example. The same explosion can still look like an explosion with those options switched off. One small concern I guess is yes Josh is using an older machine now. But when he gets the money, he will likely get a more powerful mac...
