Alright, I know you guys are sick of hearing the whole shebang of "guys if you like the game you should support it and buy it"

Though it makes a lot more sense here. Jordy, the developer of the game, is a College Professor who worked on the game for 7 years. By himself. Which is a hell of a feat, if you ask me. So maybe, throw a $20 his way some time? I think he's earned it with his effort, seeing as the game is quite fun and has a lot of soul to it. I playtested the game and it's certainly changed for the better. You should've seen the beta versions, they were pretty... mid.

But hey, if you've got feedback, I'm sure Jordy'd love to hear it! If you don't like the game because of a few things, be sure to let him know (kindly) and tell him on his Discord! Who knows, with a few fixes, patches, balanaces, you might like the game!

"gladiators exist to be sacrificed"

Not really.

Well, ultimately yes. Most gladiators back then were slaves and were sent to make their owners rich, so I'd argue they kinda were. But I'd love to hear your side.

Romans used convicts for cheap 'kill shows', but professional gladiators were expensive, training them was money and time consuming, so they did not fought to the death (usually). As normandyyy said, not all of them were slaves. They were entertainers, even some sort of celebrities.
Imagine having a tennis tournament today where most of players are disqualified forever, so you have to train new ones for the next tournament... same with boxers and every other sport. who's gonna watch some newbies every time?
People enjoyed watching quality fights, and you can't have them if you kill 90% of your best fighters every tournament.

Their life was still rather short. IIRC, the max record for gladiator career is 34 fights with average amount of 10 fights.

not all gladiators were slaves, the correct term for non enslaved gladiators would be auctoratii, who were free people who chose to become gladiators for the glory and the prize, gladiators also rarely fought to the death, it was romanticized by hollywood and the western world that they did. most gladiator fights were until one side of the fight was too injured to continue where a referee would come in and stop the fight or they would give up which they were allowed to do.

I see, that all makes sense. Thanks for the lesson guys, I did need a brush up on my gladiator knowledge.

Pretty fun but definitely has some physics jank to work out. Reminds me of a less-granular version of Exanima which isn't necessarily a bad thing, tho I highly recommend giving that game a shot if you enjoyed/are interested in this one.

One could argue Exanima has physics jank to work out. The developer specifically stated they took inspiration from Exanima.

Oh yeah there's no argument there, Exanima is far from polished but I'd say the combat is further along than this

You put the two parts in a single file and one of them must have a setup in it. The setup will require you to have the other file, so since you have it it will continue the setup normally.

You're a fu**ing idiot and should not be downloading games from this type of site. Uploaded Image

Not everyone is old enough to remember, how archives merging kept piracy running on hostings with max file size limited before torrenting caught attention of masses.

Jordy doesn't have a Patreon, he only gets money through game sales. The game is planned to be in early access for a good while as he has a large roadmap of things to add to the game, and is shaping the game based around feedback.
