  • As we get closer to TOXIKK's full release, we brainstormed a bit about how to make the game's launch as successful as possible. Besides all the planned marketing activities, we also came up with the idea for a "Free Edition" (FE).

    The FE would be pretty much in the fashion of classic game demos, except... it would be more: It would allow FE gamers to also play on the official servers (i.e. there wouldn't be a closed demo server environment, as it's usually done with demos). However, FE players could only play on maps included in the FE.

    We think it's important that the FE delivers the full core experience of TOXIKK ...and also, you can't strip weapons, vehicles, power-ups or any gameplay affecting features from the FE of an Arena FPS (well, you could... but it wouldn't be an Arena FPS anymore). So, gameplay-wise it would deliver the full core experience and be a very good help for people on the fence about buying TOXIKK.

    Here's a feature comparison chart for the FE and the full game:

    Well, if you followed our way of thinking, you already know we would NEVER turn TOXIKK into anything even close to the madness Free-to-Play is... but we seriously consider a classic demo (aka "free edition") of the game a valuable thing for TOXKK. Both... long-term and short-term.

    However, our community has a word in this decision... as all of you bought the game without having the chance to test it before your purchase. So, what's your stance? Do you think TOXIKK needs a "Free Edition" at its 1.0 release?

  • I'm all for the idea of a free edition, I think it'd definitely give people a chance to try before they buy. Sure there are Steam refunds, but 2 hours might not be enough time for them to decide. I'm not too sure about restricting maps from free players, but the rest sounds pretty good. 8)

  • This looks pretty fair. Now the all map thing is a bit on the edge. How would this work with normal players? Server changes to only maps the free people have?

  • No, the other way around: Map changes (if voted by the players) to maps the full game has. If you're playing the FE and the change is traveling to a map you don't have, you would need to connect to a new server (where a map included in the FE is active).

  • Yea, all maps seems too much for a free edition. Maybe limit the number of maps too. Maybe it sounds too "mercenary", but if you gives some good maps (for exemple 2 ou 3) maybe it will help to the player decision of buy the full game... And sorry for all those "maybes"

  • The map thing is totally fair. I mean, if you give the FE players a lot of maps, they will have a lot of content already. Give them two or three maps, one of them being wide open with vehicles and the other one or two being arena style.

  • You are trying to tale Arena shooters back to their root, and it is honestly about time someone did the same with game demos.

    Letting people get their hands on just a tiny bit of a game is way better than them watching it all in a Let's play video! :)
