I broke down and got Dyad on steam... but it's not like I wasn't warned, so I've only got myself to blame for that one.
I don't think I've ever seen a game so completely unable to handle having new mechanics thrown into the mix while also desperately needing new mechanics to make things even remotely interesting. It's the most fundamental failure of design imaginable. The fact that the creators namedrop Torus Trooper as their inspiration just displays a disgraceful missing of the point.
Everyone in the gaming press are high as kites, that's the only way I could understand someone actually enjoying this pointless piece of junk.
