Quick Look: Velvet Sundown
Watch extended gameplay footage from Velvet Sundown featuring the Giant Bomb crew.
I tried this out the other day out of boredom lol. I will say that it was unique at first but couldn't hold my interest long enough. I couldn't understand the point of it. Probably better with a group of people you know instead of random people. Nice quick look though:). Good laughs
Amazing Quick Look but this really is a "game" you need to experience for yourself. I think it's barely a game and pretty much all the mechanics seem broken and terrible (it looks pretty nice though)...but everything else is absolutely fascinating.
I've played the free level 4 times now and 3 of the sessions were absolutely hilarious (even with total strangers and without text to speech), only one session was terrible because the people were either afk or not chatty at all.
Right now it looks only good for a quick laugh, but it could become the cornerstone for a great new gaming experience. I'm not talking about the text to voice which I can't see beyond gimmicky but rather the independent scenarios with only human players pursuing sometimes whacky objectives. For the longest time in this video, I thought Dunla's objective was to get someone to adopt that girl; no one should draw any comparison to helping out children in need in real life.
