yessssss, this looks incredible good. I hear it's mostly hand animated?

Looks great. But i hope there is a slider for the "old VHS" effect or whatever it is. I wouldn't turn it off, but i'd like to tone it down, it seems to distract from the awesome artwork.

You mean those horrible lines are actually intentional? I get what they were trying to do but it looks bad and unnecessary. Contributes to nothing but making my TV look like it's having issues. Make it optional or no sale.

This and Unravel looked absolutely amazing and just as good as any AAA titles.

This is really amazing. I hope this leads to more hand animated games.

In the sea of toon/cell shaded 3D and fist-sized 2D pixels, this game has really refreshing and high quality visuals.

Thought this was a platformer / side scroller.
When did this turn into 1 room boss challenge only game ?
Looks kinda boring now.

Yea, I understand it's a bunch of one room boss challenges. which is a shame, but I believe that is it because the art & animations taking a huge amount of time to do.

Looks awesome...but i do think it's a bummer it's just boss fights. I understand it would take a lot of work to have full platform levels animated like this...but if you're gonna do a job may as well do it right. Think we all thought it was a proper platformer.

I'd still pick it up though if I get an xboxone. Does look like good co-op fun.

Gonna have to agree with you on that one ... wonder what the drama is to avoid actual stages for it?

Oh...erm. Hype deflated then. I thought it was a full blown platformer :/

Such a fantastic animation. I'm amazed.

2nd video is up and it shows some side scrolling backgrounds after all. Sadly the gameplay seems to retain the boss challenge only concept. Let's hope the final has some challenging platforming too, because animation wise this looks too good to be just that.

They said in interview it's going to be a 70% boss battles.
Kinda bummer, since i heard it today. Love the style of the game.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (54 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (57 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (1 Hour ago)
