That was a nice dev diary. Informative and humble. This could be a great documentary.
I am interested in the game. Maybe this will be the good alternative for the David Cage hybris. I hope they will have the money to make all episodes.

Will play this for sure, but still can't get over the fact how dated the visuals are.

As an avid film watcher, i can clearly see the independent film look they are going for. This could be an interesting story, i really hope it feels substantial as many of the indie films its trying to capture usually feels aimless until a certain tragedy or transformation for its characters.

Gameplay wise I really hope the choices you make have real consequences. Like many adventure games before it, the illusion of choice is always there with only actually having one 'real' choice. Some of the examples they show are mundane things that aren't real choices, like moving the lamp so the stuff out of the closet doesn't fall when that is the only actual thing you can do to progress. Or having the other character be shot, clearly the game will not progress unless you stop it: The illusion of choice.

As long as the story is compelling im sure these gameplay issues will can easily be overlooked. I wonder how long the gaming community will go before they start labeling this game as pejoratives like "hipster" or "casual" because im sure the press will be talking about this title, letting more people know about it.

Got a good deal on a pre-order (GMG), I really like what I see so far. In the ultimate age of remakes/remasters, this unique storytelling and style is more than welcome.

Interesting documentary. I've been following them since Remember Me, loved the game although it had it's shortcomings, but their art direction is wonderful.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I have pretty mixed feelings about the state of BF1. (59 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX More concerned with it having proper conquest rules. If it doesn't I probably won't play it much. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Bad Company 3 rumors popping up. Seem plausible. And while I think BC2 is terribly overrated that's totally fine. (1 Hour ago)
  • rayy
    rayy I'm just happy I got two of my favorites Sagat and Cody. Sakura is looking cool to. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Kinda sucks that Sagat won't come 'til October. Lots of people want him yesterday. (17 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The EX roster appeared in Capcom's own character poll recently and Ingrid did not. That's a hoot. (17 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: EX nostalgia is pretty trendy right now, but we're getting a new Arika fighter and most of the people talking about Skullomania won't play it anyway. (17 Hours ago)
