Dead Cyborg Episode 1 Released

The Dead Cyborg Website offers the first episode in this "first person view, hard-sci-fi adventure game." This can be had for free, as it is provided on a "pay if you like" basis. Here's a trailer, and here's word:

“Dead Cyborg” is a free, donation based sci-fi adventure game for Windows, Linux and Mac. The story is about the meaning of life... and death... in a rusty post-apocalyptic metal and concrete world. Check the homepage for more information.

If you are keen on exploring the levels of fps games, you like the old text adventures, or the sci-fi classics (like Lem, Dick, Bradbury etc.) - you will like this game.

The game will be published by episodes (2-3 hours of play per episode). The first episode is now available on the homepage. The next episodes will come when enough donation is paid for the first episode. The full game will have 3 episodes (this is sure, not an endless story or something like that).

From the FAQ:

"-Why no mouse control?
-This is a low paced adventure game without action. You will be OK with the keyboard control.
(Note: you can try a gamepad, just map the keys to the gamepad buttons... I think this is possible.)"

Consolized.

Trailer looks good. I like the *idea* of pay-if-you-like and almost feel like donating. But the WASD scheme and arrow keys for looking up and down... nah. I have too many other games on my queue.

On another site someone was complaining that interactive objects like inventory and clues aren't hilighted. As if that were a bad thing. I almost feel like donating for that design decision alone.

I'm having issues with it locking up while walking around.. also, the mystery of the green cubes.. this is a great idea for game distribution, though.. also, yes, weird controls

This game would be lots better if it had mouse look instead of keyboard look. I was rather taken back by this fact actually.
