Not everyone is on Steam. Please provide proper patches for non-Steam players. And fix the website which has been broken since some date in 2016 iirc.

Though my device doesn't meet its system requirements anyway. And I'd prefer to wait until the source code SVN gets updated, if ever.

I'm somewhat disappointed in everything about gamedev these days. Platforms like Steam and Discord becoming de facto standard, system requirements being increased all the time, things are moving to clouds and "smartphones"… is a reason why I'm not looking for new games. And now I have to think of my opinion about patches and updates.

What about updating Uplink btw? It turns 20 on October 1.

Coming back from the grave just to say who the fuck, in this year of our lord 2021, cannot meet Darwinias system requirements? Also are you actually complaining that games are getting better and more sophisticated with more computational power available? I just.. what?

Assuming I'm not trying to have a conversation with a spambot (it is getting difficult to tell the difference on these forums), my device really doesn't meet it.

This laptop was purchased a decade ago, and it wasn't intended for "gaming". I am able to run Darwinia on it, but not the "remaster", which is not even released outside Steam, another bad thing with gamedev these days.

I feel like "remasters" are useless (I don't care about graphics, I care about gameplay). So is the increasing of system requirements for newer games. Somehow, enjoyable games were made for earlier consoles like NES or Game Boy, without issues about system requirements. So it is not about new games being "better".

No reason to buy a new device just to play a specific game. Especially at time when I feel like I'm about to be made outlaw and possibly get banned from most communities due to recent COVID-19 vaccination-related events.
