Ham and Keg are RP sounding? Lies.
Edit: I'll vote after this Dota game.
Some of you may remember this game which started out on the FOH GameDev forum (RIP). You can check out all the details for the game on the main website: http://galacticarmsrace.blogspot.com/ . It is basically "Diablo in Space" but with WASD movement and a 3rd-person chase cam. There are 32-player dedicated servers with both coop and non-consensual PVP.
Getting to the point, we have a Steam Greenlight campaign going to get full advertising on Steam. Currently we are selling Steam keys via Desura and other means, which is obviously sub-optimal. Instead of the usual titties for votes, we've decided to give away free copies of the game for votes. So, go here and vote:
And I'll give you as many Steam product codes as you want (within reason) for yourself, friends, kids, or whoever. Message me on Steam to get your codes, username "Astral Projection" or PM me here with how many keys you want.
BTW, all NPCs guards in the game are named after FOH forum members. I could only use names that were at least semi-RP sounding, so if you got left out sorry. Here is the race and star system of all the NPC guards, if you'd like to find out if you are immortalized in a video game.
EDIT: If I give you an invalid key I may have accidentally not deleted one I gave to someone else. Just ask for a new one. Also, if you need more just ask. There's no limit.

Very cool! I'll definatley upvote and go for a code, message you on Steam.
You have my vote, Good Sir.
It actually looks pretty neat. I wish you the best of luck yo! upvoted will try to share with some people.
Looks good bro, up voted you.
Looking forward to dropping acid and playing this (mind = blown)
Already voted. But going to get a few of my buddies to vote for you too.
If the key says "already used" that means I forgot to delete one I already gave to someone else. Just ask for new ones. There is no limit to how many I can get from Valve, so get as many as you need.
Voted, would like 2 keys for me and I friend I made vote as well.
Voted. Would love 3 keys for myself and some friends.
Voted as well. Having recently re-subbed to EVE Online this looks like a cool blend of EVE and Diablo. I'll take 2 keys (me and the woman) but if it might be a decent LAN game my regular weekly LAN party's been looking for some new stuff to play. We don't necessarily need the usual LAN support cause it's up to 8 people and we all have net access. Usually people just play whatever in small groups through the night. Could definitely get some others to support if any kind of multiplayer is an option.
Hydrus Alpha - Mippo, Searyx, Kreugen, Makata
holy hell that is poor company for Kreugen
Voted, and will have a few friends vote too. If possible 3 keys would be awesome Looks fun!
Voted. Game looks like it might be a lot of fun. Asked for 5 keys in PM for myself and others that I play with regularly :]
Tried to vote, says its offline though at the moment, Will try again tonight!
For people having trouble voting, try voting inside steam itself instead of via web browser. Worked for me anyways. (Link someone on your friends list the link in the OP to easily get there via the in-steam browser)
how do you vote inside steam? i tried searching for the game but it didnt come up
I think we Broke Steams community Functions with all these upvotes keep up teh good work lol!
Aww, the game crashes at launch for me. On further reading it seems us lowly europeans will have to wait for a patch.
Actually, this shouldn't affect me because I'm running windows with English / US region settings. More details here https://groups.google.com/forum/?fro...ce/ehOlGjyxWvM

The game looks like it could be a lot of fun! I've just upvoted.
Also ^_^:Release date: When it's done.
Game sucks. I keep shooting Tuco but he won't die!
Oh, looks like I'm famous now.
Edit: Voted, hook me up.
I remember this game now. It was fun as hell.
Voted for your game good sir.
Just 1 key please.
Voted. 3 please
Voted. Would appreciate 3 keys (me+sister+friend) if theres that many available.
Also, I'm disappointed "Big Dubyah" or some variant isn't in that list somewhere. Or as some mystical item. You can make it up by naming your next game/expansion after me.
Voting right now, will message you on Steam. Looks pretty sweet man!
I upvoted you and joined the group on Steam. Please send a couple of keys to Abraxis in the group or PM me here.
Astral, I upvoted you yesterday. Could you send over 4 keys when you get a chance? I will ask those that get them to upvote as well.
Ok, just cleared Inbox again. Think I got everyone. If I missed you PM me again. Thanks a lot for the votes btw, they are much appreciated.
BTW, I was thinking of making the key giveaway automated and posting on Reddit or something. Anyone know of a good way to hand out a large volume of keys? If not, I wouldn't be adverse to programming it myself. Maybe using Google App engine or something like that.

Game is still crashing at launch for me => http://i.imgur.com/5jsFx.png
Should I bug you with PMs or go on the official forums with the plebs ?
The demo from your website (ver1.255) isn't working either.
Last edited by gogusrl; 01-18-2013 at 07:02 PM.
Yep, same for me, game crashes on startup, steam initializing failed. Also, avast suspects the client to be malware and will run it in sandbox mode initially. Might be worth looking into, before some people freak out.
Upvoted for you.
I get a black screen when I start, but if I ALT-TAB in/out it self-fixes.
No issues with game atm for me. Running game release client 1.256
Will vote once I get home tonight from work.
Voted. I'll send a PM for a single key, and if I really like it maybe beg for an extra or two for friends.
Voted, will PM you for a key!
- if it is a Euro version, I'm gonna try to get the patch out today for the decimal separator issue
- if it is Win XP, you may need to install the latest .Net Framework. Windows 7 comes standard with it, but I think it is an optional update for Win XP. http://www.microsoft.com/net
I assume you aren't using an Intel integrated graphics card? It may not work on that.
Up voted, 3 keys would be awesome! PMing you.
Voted, looks interesting.
When I run the game it immediately crashes also on Windows 8. I have all the frameworks loaded (I can build and run XNA games from VS 2010 and VS2012 fine)
The Debug.txt shows 'Failed to load texture: steam-greenlight'
If I put a steam-greenlight.xnb file in the Texture folder the error goes away but it still crashes.
The game will crash if your 'primary' monitor has a resolution of 2048x???? or greater. It doesn't matter if you change the resoltion to a lower number. The game currently checks max supported resolution.
My screen has a resolution of 2560x1440
If I make my 'primary' screen in windows a monitor that has a max resolution of 1920x1200 the game will load.

Yeah, going to have to say I am sad. Game crashes before it even launches. Don't even have a 1080p monitor, so I know it's not resolution. Help!
Open steam, on the top bar, COMMUNITY.
friends, profile, game hubs, discussions, workshop, GREENLIGHT, market.
Galactic arms race should be right there to click on. If not, search for it.
Then, under the video, there is a blue button to vote for it.
Bullet hell diablo? seems interesting indeed.
Holy shit, if I was Kreugen I would kill myself.
EDIT: Image is a little fuzzy, that's Searyx on the left.
I played this for a couple of hours yesterday, at the end i thought my head is about to explode and i could see blinking lights even with my eyes closed!
Ok not really, was fun though for a small little game like that. Since it can't really find any sort of info about this i may as well ask here, can you give a bit of an insight on what/how the weapon modding works? Does it change behaviour or colour only? Was a bit of an confusing aspect to be honest.
I'm not quite sure about the bank either. Apparently i have 3 guns in the bank already from the start, but how do i deposit one. It seems there's only an option to slot one into the ship, but not to store a setup.
Also, Warhead Launchers do not seem to work. Bought one, if i hit F it says i do not own one, if i try to buy it again, i'm getting "you already own a warhead launcher". Buddy has the same problem.

Had to vote since my name(from FOH Forums) is in it. Looks interesting.
I can't figure out the weapon modding system either. I don't know even what I want out of a pattern, nor how to get it.
Good little game though.
Voted, and passed it on to guild members. I'm famous!
Me and my 2 friends voted, that game is just great!
Oops sorry hadn't checked this thread in a few days since it went off the first page.
- non-US regional and language settings problems should be fixed
- gonna upload a fix for greater than 2048*2048 resolutions tonight (Hachima actually pm-ed me a fix ). Shaders in XNA can only have a 2048*2048 texture size, in this case it is a bloom shader that is causing crash.
- Weapon Lab: You'll see a graph and on top there is Red Green Blue and VelX VelZ. If you tweak any node that connects to RGB then it will change color. If you tweak any connection that goes to VelocityX or VelocityZ it will alter the flight pattern. Those graphs are neural networks and there is essentially infinite combinations of them. So it is impossible to say what will happen, just gotta tweak buttons.
We did a SteamGifts.com giveaway and got a lot of Greenlight votes: http://www.steamgifts.com/
If anyone wants more codes just ask. Game is basically "pay if you want" until Greenlighted.
If anyone has a 2048 or greater width monitor, could you let me know if it works now? I don't have one.
Patch should deploy on Steam in an hour or so.
My client shows 1.257 as the version. Current;y when I start the game I get a black screen that doesn't go away but if I alt tab out and back in it works.
If voting is clicking YES to "Would you buy this game if it were available in Steam?", then I got you covered. I'd like a key to try it out.
Voted. Crazy to see this possibly get on steam, good going!
