Default Munchkin: Quacked Quest

First of all, my friends and family have enjoyed playing Munchkin and its expansions with me for nearly 20 years. Having said that, why is Quacked Quest such a terrible game?

Completely disregarding the Munchkin license, the game itself is literally incomplete and runs horribly, not to mention it's not the slightest bit enjoyable after the first hour.

Asmodee has been really quiet the past week when responding to all the issues players are having across every platform (I personally have PC, Switch and PS4 versions and all 3 are broken).

Is there anything that can be done to nudge them to at least make an official statement about fixing the game? Can we expect bug fixes and patches? $25 for this game is nearly criminal, but I have myself to blame for letting my love of Munchkin sway my wallet.

If anyone can get this game back on track to at least being completed and playable, it's gotta be Mr. Jackson.

Iíve been out of town, so I hadnít heard these widespread complaints, but I will certainly pass your concerns along.

Thank you so much, but don't take my (or the other 37 people who bought this crap)'s word for it; go download any version for yourself and form your own opinion about the framerate, bare bones options, the ambiguous item strengths (besides their selling value), constant crashing and (worst part, for me) the trophies on PS4 just plain don't work.

I've completely done everything on my PS4 version FOUR times now, and still have half the trophy list incomplete. I erase my save file each time, and it's just more of the same. I'm a high ranking trophy enthusiast, and after a week you can see that NOBODY has the platinum trophy for this game. I haven't checked completion percentages on other platforms, but this is just ridiculous.

EDIT: I've been regularly posting bugs and issues on another site since release. You can read from others and see several screenshots to back my claims. https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/...omment=1946792

Asmodee have released custom keybindings for PC as well as version 1.02 across all console platforms in an attempt to address the crashing.

Quacked Quest crashes about half as often now, but the trophies seem to glitch if the game ever crashes, so it's basically a lost cause without additional patches.

A month after release and this game is still broken. Nobody on Playstation can finish the game due to missing resources and a save system that resets if you exit the game for any reason. Crashes are still frequent on v1.02 & Asmodee have been completely silent with zero interaction with their customers regarding these issues.

Does anyone here know anything? I can't remember the last time I got this frustrated over something small like a video game, but it feels like the developers have just moved on without offering a functional product.

I know this isn't a satisfying answer, but all I can tell you is that we are continuing to make Asmodee Digital aware of people's issues as we learn about them and reiterate our request for progress reports on fixing them.

Thank you for your response.

Has Asmodee mentioned whether they're still working towards another patch? I have yet to see any mention of the missing game assets getting added (or any acknowledgement of the issue at all).

I appreciate your assistance with this matter and look forward to a resolution.
