Ships Ahoy - HOARD

Steam News announces the release of HOARD, the action/strategy game from indie developer Big Sandwich Games. HOARD puts players in the role of lovable dragons, who must do battle with the evil humans that surround them. Word is: "Scare villages! Burn castles! Collect gold and gems! Kidnap princesses! Roast pesky knights! Fend off thieves! Topple giants! Build a hoard of treasure! Compete or cooperate with other dragons in epic multiplayer battles! Your goal is simple, but challenging: build the biggest pile of gold that you can!" The game is on sale at a 10% savings for its first week of availability.

It only fixes the problem if you had a conflict with the demo being installed, from what I've read. Unfortunately, there's a serious issue with the 4-pack. The 4-pack and the regular version of the game each have a separate app ID, and right now the 4-pack isn't activated. It also shows up as "Hoard" in the library instead of "HOARD" in all-caps like it does for the people who bought the non 4-pack version. Very frustrating, as we were looking forward to playing together on release day...

If you're a mac user, the game is currently broken. Bought the 4-pack, and it's not listed in my games list. I have 3 extra codes for friends, but they're all mac users too
My understanding from reading the game's forum is that if you restart steam that fixes a problem like that.

How's the single player?

Looks fun, and it's on the wish list currently...

Fun and surprisingly challenging, some of the multi dragon maps get very hectic. Big downside is that the mouse aiming can be a tad frustrating at times (sometimes doesn't register you've moved the mouse, the targeting is similar to crimsonlands or nation red, ie. move with the keys, independent targeting with the mouse). MP should be pretty hectic given you can wait till an opponent loads up then ambush them and steal their take.. =)

it's fun, but I encountered a crash bug on the second tutorial...

I would still recommend it though, as I'm sure that sort of thing will be fixed quickly.
