Deathloop dev says its campaign is "a puzzle"

Source

"With all projects, there is some kind of flavour; this one is more action, this one is more RPG, this one is more adventure. So there are always those flavours we play with." In Deathloop, however, "where we wanted to focus was on how you approach the campaign itself. So the campaign is kind of a puzzle. It's quite open-ended, in the sense that you're presented with a problem, with few leads in the beginning."

While the likes of Prey and Dishonored also offered players plenty of avenues to success, Bakaba says that Deathloop is "more of a puzzle than what we did before. Although there is one solution to the overarching puzzle, each and every situation can be approached in a variety of ways."

Inspired by Half life. very interesting. This shaping to be one of the most intelligent game this year. no surprise Arkane games are Intellectual games.

the game's been advertised as part hitman style puzzle sandbox part dishonored supernatural combat pretty much since day one. as one of the foremost intellectuals on the forum i'm surprised you didn't know that.

With all the movies games out, Cows aren’t exactly conditioned for this type of game.

Yup. It will most probably flop on console(s). Don't know what Bethesda was thinking signing on with Sony or may be they signed up because of the very reason to offset the risk for this very reason.

Its Arkane game so it meant to play on PC. sony gamers wont support immersive sims.

meanwhile another Arkane game work by Arkane austin, a Prey developers. hoping for Prey 2 after that.

More like puzzling why any dev would deliberately make a game so repetitive, certain death, and with casual4ever shilling it, that double death.

This is not surprising coming from Arkane, they love to let the player get creative. Just go look up some of those Dishonored videos with the various combos and stuff. It's great.

Really looking forward to this game. I wasn't before because the premise.

@i_p_daily said:

That's literally the entire concept of the soulsborne and roguelite genres, both of which have been incredibly successful.

They're not really my cup of tea because I am a filthy casual that doesn't like dying a lot...but apparently a lot of people do.

Probably right, unfortunately (maybe?).

How did the Dishonored and Prey games sell? I know they limit their audience by not having multiplayer, but that also means the budget for the game is smaller to compensate (I would think).

@mrbojangles25: I think you might be confused, this game is a run & gun type game where you need to figure out the right sequence to killing to get to the end of the level, which means you need to run & re-run it multiple times, and i think there is some sort of timer, so not sure how you compare that to those of the Souls games.

What's puzzling is people being excited for this thing.

Meh, not the biggest fan of Arkane. Dishonoured 2 was pretty bad. I liked the first game. Prey was alright, nothing great.
