in the full audio of the register interview arzt said something like, the current joystick he had with him doesn't spin but they intend for the release version of it to be able to. i'm not sure how much confirmation of their intentions is worth
most of my nostalgic feelings for the olde microcomputer in a keyboards's are clumsily poking around in basic. i'd prefer just a functional replica kb in an empty case that i can mess with over some lil thing with pretend keys. i doubt there are enough people like me for someone to bother with that. or maybe someone did and i missed it.
my anecdotal tale - i have a single game on steam and it was made with unity. the mac and linux versions both had problems that took a few hours to sort out, in both cases it was the steam integration at the root of it. i try to avoid the asset store and was rolling with basically stock unity. i could see piling a bunch of random things on there ballooning up to a major issue but i was actively trying to avoid that.
the low effort asset dumps may skew the numbers upward since their main revenue came from generating keys to sell offsite to bot farms, i know i didnt sell no 100k copies. none of my acquaintances with a steam presence have pulled numbers anywhere near that either. could just be our collective crap marketing
i'm all about the underdog, but if they're asking for money up front with no obligation to deliver anything and no recourse if they decide to dip i'm gonna need a bit more to go on than a couple empty boxes and an atari logo.
