Agreed, the art style blows me away every time I see the game.

QFT. Seriously, it will come down to either Deadlight, or Dust: An Elysian Tail . . . especially with no new game from thatgamecompany hitting PSN this year. If Tequila Works delivers with Deadlight, and everything I have seen on the game suggest they will, then at the very least, Deadlight is going to be legendary (expect lots of copycats in the years to come). On the other hand, I got to play the original build of Dust: An Elysian Tail back in 08/09 while it was still on XNA Creators Club, it was already phenomenal then, just unpolished. A friend got to play the near final build of it at PAX East this year, and pretty much confirmed the that it was still phenomenal and much improved. Unless something unexpected comes along (likely another indie project on PC), one of the two of these games is currently shoe-in for digital game of the year.

I think you mean Trials: Evolution. Trials HD came out two years ago, and would not qualify as a 2012 Game of anything.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (13 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (15 Hours ago)
