    How do you install the custom campaigns?

    Wanted to chime in and say gigantic congrats to the team for sticking with this and pulling it all the way through to a release. That's a big accomplishment and so far I'm seeing it get mentioned in the randomest of places with a lot of enthusiasm. Great job.

    It's not released yet. They released a preview of 3 levels with 4 weapons, 3 enemy types (4 if you count the turret), and one boss.

    I bet my left nut that the full release will get pushed back to 2019.

    Whatever you say. Whatever you want to believe. I don't really care and don't feel like defending my point of view against of bunch of obese neckbeard sycophants.

    A large portiont of the reasons you listed for not liking the demo are listed on the release page as being present in the full release.

    more enemies
    more weapons

    You admitted to rushing through it as fast as you could. Then complained about the levels being confusing and cryptic.
    In the same token you admit to only finding about half the secrets, but complained that they didn't hold anything worthwhile.
    You only found half of them, so you don't know what's in the other half.
    If you properly read the end-screen you'd know that there are going to be more secrets and items in the final version.

    Negative aspects and comments are good. Echo chambers don't foster very much progress.

    Where on earth did I say that I rushed through it? I completed the 3 levels in 65 minutes. I took my time to find as many secrets as possible even though many of the secrets were pointless (as I already stated) and killed pretty much all of the enemies in each level. Plus I stated that I found roughly half of the secrets per level so if you think that's rushing then we have very different opinions of what rushing is.

    The whole preview campaign just didn't impress me that much. Like, why the crap would you not show off more of the arsenal? This has been worked on for about 2 years, right? So why only show 4 weapons including the melee weapon? Why in the crap would you give me the chaingun (finally a new weapon even though it's a very atypical weapon for an FPS) and then just end it? Why not after getting the chaingun a bunch of enemies swarm in and you could have a little bit of fun with it?

    If anything was rushed it was this preview. Compare Ion Maiden to Dusk which was made by 3 people and the first campaign (consisting of around 8 or so levels) was available from the get-go along with a fully fleshed out arsenal.

    Do you ever look in a mirror? I didn't say the game was terrible but it was underwhelming. But apparently I'm not allowed to criticize without fuccbois (including very thin-skinned developers who love to criticize the work of others) appearing and downvoting me for having a different opinion.

    A Duke Nukem "Cops are pigs" and a Portal "cake is a lie" and Companion cube reference in there.

    Then I really didn't miss anything.

    That's fine, but you listed some criticisms of stuff all of which could change in the full version, and then you noted that "everything else was good". Reading your review, it seemed like it delivered for you what could reasonably be expected of an early access game at this point. The problem is, when you announce that you got a refund, it makes it sound like you bought it under false pretenses. It sounds like you bought it planning to get a refund unless it was the most amazing game ever -- essentially you abused your right to a refund by setting the bar unreasonably high. Naturally, people around here who want to support EDuke32 won't take kindly to that.

    By the same token nothing could change when the full game is out. Same thing happened with Wrack; everyone thought it was going to be this big thing but nope.

    Dusk on the other hand really impressed me and I thought the devs deserved my money after knocking me off my ass with the first campaign. And the 2nd campaign that they released on Christmas was equally amazing.

    Side note: Amid Evil also looks absolutely amazing.

    Ion Maiden needs more polish. More varied enemy types, deaths, and weapons. The revolver is horribly generic. The sub machine gun is even more generic. The shotgun looks cool but operates just like any other shotgun and lacks the "oomph" that a shotgun needs.
