These graphics are how modern games should be. This looks more detailed, beautiful and real to me than all of the muddy shooters that are financially backed by the color brown. I really wish more games would use this style, because it not only looks incredible and realistic (with a small cartoon touch, but only slightly), but it is also colorful and vibrant and wonderful. This is how the world actually looks... not the **** colored crap we see in most modern games.
This looks cool. The title seems like a terrible fit at this point, but I think they're keeping the story under wraps to avoid spoilers, so it might make more sense later on.
Mediaeval Baebes-Glass Window
I like puzzle games. It's better than mindlessly shooting crap. However, I wonder about the replay value.
This game is being developed by the people who made the 2D puzzle platformer, Braid in 2008. I would not underestimate their gameplay ideas, stories, music, or their art direction.
I suggest they allow multiplayer puzzles like portal. It feels lonely and empty without company. Maybe animals or strange creatures is ought to be a good addition. I have great faith in the maker of this series though since I loved Braid so much.
I hope they're going somewhere with this, because otherwise they're going to make a massive loss.
I get the feeling this is one of those games that only exist because the new controller has a touch pad and motion tracker.
looks like a modern day Myst or Riven from the old PC days. There's not enough of these games on consoles. Nice to see.
Nice visuals, nice music, nice atmosphere, looks like it has artistic vision, and it is centerend around something that'll activilly engage my cognitive process - puzzles.
I'll keep an eye out for it :)
@Demonjoe93 No but it could easily be a PS3 game
@emacdaddy08 lol I know, right?
Why isn't the creative graphical style based on realism, like all my favorite FPS games?
In fact, I think this game should run on the PS2, because I'm a complete moron!
@mr_azim The graphics looks amazing. This looks better than any of the shooters I saw at E3. This actually has blue, green, pink, red, orange and purple. Most "realistic" modern games only have 45 shades of brown. And this game world was incredibly detailed too. I actually felt like I was there. When I play Battlefield, Halo, CoD... I feel like I am driving in my car looking through a dusty windshield.
@MetalDogGear I loved the Myst games and this looks VERY interseting to me... love hard puzzles in games
I was going to say the same thing. It definitely reminded me of Myst with Wind Waker graphics.
I really hope that hey don't have as many gimmicky games as in a usual launch. The touch pad looks to small to be of much use anyway.
@501stormtrooper Except better looking of course.
@Uncle_Rell so was devil may cry
@musalala I think it's Enya
@lilmcnessy i've been following the games development for a long time
