a game where you can play the role of a butterfly!? wow!!! how cool!!!! (sarcasm)


ok in all fairness, the game does look beautiful. as for the gameplay, it kinda bothered me though that at around 00:28 it goes underwater and there does not seem to be any particular change in the gameplay mechanic, it looks like it does the same thing as on the air, albeit noticeable slowly, so whats the point in making it going underwater a feature in the first place? in classic gaming, what happened when Super Mario went underwater? or Donkey Kong from SNES Donkey Kong Country? what about Megaman? even he got his dog to turn into a submarine. oh but in here a butterfly goes underwater and it just the same thing as in the air, but slowly? whats the point of looking pretty with nice graphics if the gameplay can not out match classic over two decades old games? that being said, I would still give the benefice of the doubt, I mean it is just a 59 sec gameplay after all .

Interesting how the water effects look terrible from above the water (ink, jello water) but great below the water.

Well nothing particularly stunning unless they're referring to how good it looks( and yes its pretty obvious that it is; since i'll bet its probably running on Unreal 4 or something.) that's about it though

@Gadeos: True, how can a game be "unique" without shooting and killing and lots of explosions!

Sorry Gamespot but I don't share your love for pretentious artsy, minimalist crap.

@vackillers@killerious: I don't know, I kind of see it. Other than that, I'm not impressed at all. As someone said, "pretentious artsy, minimalist crap" is pretty spot on.

@killerious: With very stiff looking controls.

Either that or it was being played by a one armed man eating a sandwich.

@reduc_ab_: The video player is fine. Just because it doesn't work for you, doesn't mean everyone else has the same problem.

Works fine for me. No stuttering and loads in a second or 2.

What systems is this game for? Just PC?

@reduc_ab_@dani_i89: Maybe it's the computer or the browser? I click on the link, and the video starts playing in 2 seconds, uninterrupted. It's fine.

A lot of people complain about a lot of things on this site.

@dani_i89@reduc_ab_: I don't know man I've been trying to get the video player here to work for like 2 years. It always just stutters like hell for me. I've used several different browsers, even different computers. Currently I use Chrome. There should be no reason it should eff up that I can see, but it does. I've given up. I just go to youtube. The problem is, the GS youtube page doesn't upload every single vid from the site. Oh well, I guess.

@reduc_ab_@dani_i89: Hmm sorry to hear that. I'm even using the well-considered 'terrible' Internet Explorer and Windows 8.1 (no issues with either). I like the player, it's fast and responsive for me.

@dani_i89@reduc_ab_: Considering I haven't used Explorer since, like, 10 years ago, maybe I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the tip.

@reduc_ab_@dani_i89: At the end of the day, it's just an internet browser. It does the job just fine, and I like the layout. I never got the hate, and never understood how a simple, functional browser can be so hated. It's all I use. But like I said before, people complain a lot around here (not directing it at you). Give it a go.

It is awful isn't it. I've pretty much given up trying to play vids on gamespot, instead I just nip over to Youtube and search for the video that SHOULD have worked on GS!

This game looks like it has a bad case of the HDR-DOF-lensflares.
