This game needs a targetting reticle.

I've been playing through the demo and whilst I'm having a good time for the most part I find picking items up very frustrating. It can sometimes take 10-20 seconds of scanning back and forth over an item in the hope that the hand or eye icon will appear, this really breaks the immersion far more than a target dot would.

I can understand your desire to for no icons on screen but I really think an optional target dot would be unobtrusive and go a long way to making the game less frustrating to play.

yes it should defiantly be included and optional for others such as i then can get along without, and it also takes a few short minutes to add.

Perhaps we will add this to a patch after release, we have not added it since nobody complained when playing the tech demo Smile

For now, pressing R and going into Interact mode is the best way to search an area.

RE: This game needs a targetting reticle.

if you do, make it so that you can toggle it on and off in the options screen
it takes you a lil bit out of the game imo
and i never had any problems
mostly if i cant pick it up i use interact mode and then there are no problems
