Much nicer looking than Borderlands 1. I think it will benefit greatly from having the art style from the start of development. The original game had a totally different art style until the last 6 months of development, when they modified some shaders and some textures to get it's final look.

Yeah, I remember when the visuals looked incredibly dull and interest for the game was at a real low point. Fair play to them for taking such a risk by drastically altering the visual style mid-development to give it more of a distint look.

You're definitely right though; the fact that they're sure of where they want to take this game right from the off will definitely benefit it.

Love the art style! Even more now that they came up with the idea of adding colors and more varied environments.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @KORNdog: The dub was wooden, like most localizations of japanese games at the time. Expensive AAA game pushing the envelope, unlike III which by the looks of it isn't pioneering much, which is fine. (8 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] short biomutant gameplay. (18 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i think it'll be fine. it's an in-development title, with a budget on-par with an indie game. you're not going to get the next horizon visually. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog you know what i remember about shenmue? wooden delivery of lines and wooden animation. it was about awkwardly walking and running around an environment asking mundane questions (53 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am sorry nostalgia or not, those shenmues characters look like shot... This is truly embarrassing (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus locations, and not really a game in development. So much time hiding a game, and this is wath the well known perfections Yu Suzuki shows with a straith face? Fucking kikckstarter strikes again! (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus game, and it just had some dead eyes faces plasted to the mocaped bodies, it was trully bad. And the deserted city streets. This seems like a talented modder modeling of a "2000's type" of shenmue (3 Hours ago)
