You should add some more weapons, like a lance or a glaive or even a shield. Still gr8 tho.

This is the most satisfying game I've played since Dark Souls 3.

So glad you like it and thanks for your support!

Doesn't work on macos catalina you just need to make a 64-bit version, luckily I was already planning to switch to windows, I changed my computer to run windows 10 pro

Hi everyone! Wanted to write a small post about Mac OS Catalina and TORB. TORB was made on a very old version of UNITY from about 10 years ago. This version of unity does not support MacOS Catalina (it didn't exist back then!) and though we've tried to update TORB to a newer version it breaks most of the game and would require months of rework. Since this is a 2-year-old, free game that we made for fun, we simply don't have the time to keep updating it and work on new projects. 

Instead, we've been working on NEW GAMES in the TORB world, hoping that we can remake this experience and have things like online multiplayer and coo-op, VR/non VR players. Our first new game will be out pretty soon (FULL DISCLOSURE: its a TORB VR hockey game), and we have to focus on projects that will eventually allow us to fund more TORB games. 

While this old version of TORB is near and dear to our hearts, we are only 2 people. We have to decide to let go of the old projects and work on the new. There's just not enough time or people to support this free game on the side. Plus, we have jobs we have to focus on as well! So, the bad news is that  there will be no updates to this version of TORB  (until, of course, it wins Game of the Year, makes millions and we can release the remastered version!) . The GOOD NEWS is that we can work on games that will build up to more physically-based action games, and eventually the perfect version of TORB! I apologize to MacOS Catalina users ( I used to be a Mac gamer, I feel your pain) and I hope in the future we can all play a version of TORB online together!

Please add 64-Bit Support as MacOS Catalina and Later Cannot Run the game

I love this game, but it can't run on the new and updated Mac, a simple update to add to the games files would be to update its compatibility with the new updates. that's the only flaw I can think of

i cant belive i played this game this is now one of my favorite  games please add more updates thank you :-)

(+1)

Awesome that you discovered us, thank you! The free version of TORB will not be receiving any new updates here, unfortunately.  We both have other jobs/projects, and we are spending our time making  new TORB  games. We have not abandoned TORB as a concept, and we continue to work on physics-based games in the TORB universe! We will post any updates on our progress here. Until then, enjoy the free version and we hope you make some sweet sandbox levels, chop some gorblyns, battle your friends! Thanks again!

can you make the steam version please

does it support keyboard and mouse?

(1 edit)

It does, it just takes some getting used to. If you just press keys to try and figure out what they do, you'll get the hang of it. I think F heals you or something

Edit: F doesn't heal you, you heal after a short amount of time. F makes it easier for other people to find you.

Does this work on macOS Catalina 

Honestly I'm not sure, I don't have a mac to test it on...however ITS FREE! so feel free to try it out

Hey Jeson Bro What Are You Doing No New Game No Update

Yea there are no updates planned for this version of TORB. we are working on new games, but its all in our free time so progress usually comes in bursts. We will announce any new TORB stuff here first!

Ok Thanks For Your Responce

hey Jason when is the next version coming?

Unfortunately, Its all done in our spare time, and right now we don't have a ton of that, HOWEVER we do work on several projects/ideas, and they all build towards another game like this.  We have a big vision for this game, and as physics and networking  start to get faster and better, we will hopefully get to realize it!

thank you

Hey Man please help me when download is completed it says Failed - Forbidden

HELP

(+1)

HI! Sorry you are having trouble. I don't have a Mac, cant test this, but I can download the file for mac no problem.

try redownloading as I only get that issue when pausing the download, if the game says you don't have permission to open it, use "sudo chmod -R 755 " then drag in the file and it should work fine (after bypassing security)

hey can you try updating this game for the mac 64 bit ver. plz

Hey Jason, just found this game! this is crazy fun, a real diamond in the rough. I had just a few questions for future development. Is online play in the checklist, and would steam controller support ever be a thing? Again, really want to say how freaking fun this is, with its simplistic style but potentially complexity. Honestly a beautiful piece. Nicely done. 

P.S. PS4 controllers can work with TORB, you just need DS4Windows. Simple software to set up if you have windows 10, and for an (arguably) better controller.

can i use a DUALSHOCK 4 controller from my ps4 for this game?

Im not sure, i dont have one. Though i used to use a Dualshock 3 to play it about 7 years ago (i had to have a  special driver then but things might have changed)!

yes, you ca

Thank you all for trying out TORB! When we passed 4k downloads we were blown away! I'm sorry that we aren't updating THIS version of the game, we both have a bunch of work commitments and we are cooking up some new stuff on the side. We highly encourage players to try streaming services like Parsec (https://parsecgaming.com/) for some "online couch" multiplayer. We will keep you posted on the future of TORB!

This game is amazing, keep up the good work!

this is the best sword fighting game!

(+1)

Thank you so much for saying that! 

(+3)

we need every master swords man to play this game but for the love of god remove controller controls for people who dont have controllers or change the setting

Great game! Loved it! But can you get to work with MacOs Catalina? i installed it without realising that it didn't work, and now I can't play my favourite game.

(+1)

Aagh! sorry about that, we haven't tested it on MacOs in a while. TORB is such an old game made on an old version of the engine....I'll do my best, but unfortunately I cant make any promises for the near future. Never fear, though, we are still working on TORB when we can!

thnx! <

I have an idea for a new weapon.

(1 edit)

ive been waiting for this game to release for AGES! im loving it and happy its out.


what plans are there for updates/ the future of TORB? i saw a comment below that 'this version' wont be updated much, but....?

TORB will continue, but its development is kind of a prolonged, fun art project. I cant say when, but there will be more TORB!

im so happy to hear that!

making new tutorials on the finer points of TORB!

(+1)

This is a very very fun game. So enjoyable and fun to play. It definatly deserves to make its way to steam. However, one thing that confuses me is how to play with friend in Local Multiplayer, I was not able to get two computers to play with eachother on the same Wifi. Please give me some insight on this. Overall this game is amazing and wonderful. I hope more is added to the game as it would make it even more fun.

(+1)

Thanks so much for the kind words! Im sorry to say that this old TORB does not support LAN play. It can only be splitscreened.  This version of TORB  will probably not see too many updates. But stay tuned for news of future TORB, its an idea we are definelty hooked on.

how do you do split screen and get another player in 

Hey Cool Mann! You need to have another controller plugged in, then at the player select screen (the screen after you pick a game mode) have the other player press A on their controller. Left and right and up and down select players color and symbol. If players have the same color in Versus Mode, they are on the same team. Team battles are fun, and if you get really good, you can fight three of your pals at once for a true trial by TORB!

(+1)

A little new to this, but we have a TORB Dischord now running. Hopefully we can make it a place to share Torbish exploits, swap Crystal Techniques, and just Torbtalk it out.

(+1)

Great game, thanks for the chance to play it! :) Unfortunately I couldn't find any of your active socials to share this to, hope you get plenty of coverage since this was a lot of fun!

Thanks for playing! Really enjoyed your video :) You can actually use the circle purple ball thing ("B" on the controller) to push dudes away that are close to you. Helps with those dang riders :D

(+1)

thanks Alomo! :) Had a lot of fun playing your game! And thank you for the tip, definitely going to be playing again haha

(+1)

Thank you for this! Its so aweosme to see people TORBin'! We are working on some kind of social media presence for the TORB so we'll post it on the game's page here or on the blog:

http://torb-game.blogspot.com/

(+1)

very welcome Jason, thank you for the chance to play! A social media presence is a great idea, I can see channels much bigger than my own having a lot of fun with this!

If there is an adventure mode in this game, thats dope

(+1)

Really enjoying Torb. i assume the beacon is just to show teammates where you are?\

this is really dang interesting man. unique.

Thanks! Glad you like it! Yes, the beascon is intended for finding buds. Its also pretty good for puctuating a victory in VS, or maybe initiating a duel, whatever you like!

Cool! If you ever need anyone for sound hit me up. i really liked the environment and think that my style would fit :) i didnt want to message you here but i couldnt find any way of contacting you otherwise. 

(+1)

This is just pure fun! It took a little bit for me to understand the controls and I don't think I even touched all of them, but the core combat is just so damn fun! I think my only wish is that I could choose my own weapon. But overall the game is really interesting in its combat mechanics, manages to get all information across with a cool low poly style and is unlike most games I've played before. Definitely worth playing! Great work!

(+2)

Thanks man! This video is so amazing and surreal. We've never watched someone play TORB for this long, esp since I just finished that waves mode a few days ago! So glad you like it!

You can pick different weapons in the sandbox mode. If you pick the player from the sandbox menu on the right you can chose between hammer, bow, 2 swords, and saber. But beware, they aren't really as balanced as the good ol' Crystal Blade! Really, really encourage you to try out VS with some pals. Things get real.

this looks awesome, definitely giving it a try!

Update: I gave it a try, it's awesome.

Thanks so much! Glad you like it! Keep on TORBin'!
