For some reason when i try to edit my message it says i am not allowed to do that, too old? Wtf?

Anyway, i went to the website of the developer and basically they said they have sent a build to MS a while ago for Game Preview certification but haven't heard a thing from them. Goddamn it MS, greenlight this.

It's always been like that. Messsages cannot be edited after 5 minutes. :)

Any chance you guys could extend it to 10 minutes?

Ah i see. I probably never had to edit my messages before then, haha. :)

I brought this up on Xbox One Reddit, made a discussion about it. A few hours later Major Nelson replied to my thread and said he passed it along to the team. Hope this means it'll land on Game Preview sometime in 2017, hopefully real soon. I believe this developer is just one man or two tops and this is incredibly impressive. Look at the animations of the mouse and how he behaves, everything.

It's mainly one person with a bunch of friends helping him out (4 to be precise).

Quite impressive then. Several things in the footage looks like it could easily be a AAA game. We need this on Xbox One Game Preview right now, damn. I'll buy it right away. Been looking forward to this ever since the first announcement.

cuttest protagonist ever.

What's up with the echo you hear on almost every sound. You constantly sound like you're in a cave or something, even when outside. Is it the recording or just how the game sounds?

Is there an option for 4K resolution?

Sure, but then kiss the 60 FPS framerate goodbye, even with a GTX 1080.

Oh ok... thanks for the info. In fact i have a heavily oc custom GTX 1080. What about the graphic settings?

I haven't tried lowering the graphics settings at 4k, except for aliasing, if that's your question. Remember the game is finsihed though, there might be some more optimization in the future, making possible to run the game at 4k at 60 fps. With my rig, it's not steady yet, it's all I can say. 1440p is butter smooth though.

I bought the game right now.. it runs between 75 and 90 FPS in 4K (AO off, because i don´t like that effect, AO on than you have 10 FPS less )! So, i´m way over 60 FPS at 2160p ;-).

The game looks, performs and plays amazing, considering in general just one (!) person working oh that title!

Audio volume is far too high in these videos; gets distorted in some parts.

Also... was it not possible to turn off motion blur? :/

Yeah, the echo sound effect is exaggerated.

visually quite impressive...boring as sin though, not helped by his slow ass movement.

Ive been looking forward to this game for years now...its coming along quite well from the looks of it. Hopefully, they do something for the Scorpio version.
