Cythera...How cool?



  • This is the first time I've visited this board(so I assume this will be locked or something :p ) But I've heard a lot of good stuff about Cythera...and I'm wondering, apart from having played it for like 5 minutes once, is it a good/cool game? For whatever reason, playing it in the beginning for a few minutes never really suited me as far as the game itself. Any insights that someone could give me?

  • It can be a fun game after you advance a few levels, and get some of the powerful equipment, and if you ignore all of the bugs.

    Seriously, I'm sorry about that whole thing, but the truth must be told.

    Actually I found it pretty hard to get into- it's pretty dull at the start. It gets better though. Until it asks you to register...

  • Welcome to the Cythera boards, and yes, it does get exciting further in to the game. Grrr, I'd post more, but I was working on schoolwork/coding/working on my science project/away. Grrrrr. Anyway, iBack.

    Oh, and you can't get mass karma yet. You first must go through our extremely painful initiation which involves a fire, a carpet rug, an iMac shell and a pineapple. :p

  • Is Cythera a good game?

    Yes.

    Do the people on the Cythera board have rediculously high karma?

    Yes.

    Therefore, would it be a good idea to play Cythera and hang out in this board?

    Yes.

  • No offence to anyone here, but I never really enjoyed Cythera. That said, I'm glad that you all seem to enjoy the game so much and have created such a wonderufl online community here.

    Actually, while the game is OK, it's a long way from the best RPG out there - the original Exile series far surpasses it, and the Avernum conversion makes them better still. To me, what stands out about Cythera is the world that was created for the game, in which most of our stories are based. What's so good about it is hard to quantify, but it seems to provide a rich arena in which our apparently fertile imaginations can play. ;)

    And don't remind me about that pineapple! :mad: I think the scars are starting to fade, now... :p

  • Anyway, I liked Cythera better than Exile, but both engines have good points.

  • I wasn't referring so much to the engine, as to the games themselves. The Exile series has a huge advantage over Cythera, just by the sheer size of the games; there's so much to do, and most of it's innaccessible until you register - while I gather you can complete almost all of Cythera before registering, which makes it seem kind of pointless. Paying good money just to see the ending seems a bit of a waste, to me. Mind you, there are the other in-game benefits...
