As long as Kate's in it, count me in, plus being made my Ubi helps a lot to add to the hype.

Curious what they will do for a story as the series itself is a bit "lost" in this department.

It looks MUCH better than I hoped.

Why. I just don't see how this could work as a game, especially if is attempts to follow the story of the show in any way other than a group of people stranded on an island.

No way .......

This could be a really great adventure game with good graphics and plot. Will be definitely looking after it.

I hope it turns out good, but I won't plunk down sixty bucks for it.

that was pretty damn boring trailer =/, more running shots to make it seem dramatic.
I doubt it will live up to the TV show.

It looked a lot better than I could have imagined. I'm going to follow the progress of this one. When hearing about it I was skeptical... now I'm hopeful they can pull it off. Heres to hoping.

the story is lost is too huge for 1 game so i hope they do a good job trying to fit it all

I dont watch the show but how did they explain losing tens of millions worth of plane and people onto a large island without anybody looking for them. Living sacks of meat and bone survive a crash yet somehow it destroyed the indestructable location beacon.

Or how about the random commercial flights (14 000 of which are airborne EACH MOMENT) flying over the area ten times a week not seeing a football field sized wreckage and downed trees in a jungle.

And how does that fat guy not lose weight being several years in a jungle under SUPPOSED extreme conditions. Unless they landed with a pizza chef and years worth of cheese and meat he would become normal weight in a matter of a couple months.

Well they were pulled way off course. So that explains why they haven't been accidentally discovered. (I think but I don't watch the show)

I like watch Lost

Joergen - you've clearly thought of everything! The only problem is, you haven't seen the show. Maybe you should watch it at least once before posting opinions about it on the internet. Nah, where's the fun in that!

To answer your questions:

- The plane (Oceanic Flight 815) was supposed to be thousands of miles off course when it crashed. The plane had lost radio contact, turned back towards Fiji, and encountered some kind of turbulence before crashing.
- There may or may not have been a locator beacon, but the show frequently suggests that the island is somehow invisible to the outside world, and that communication is being jammed. Basically there's something strange about the location that makes the recovery of the survivors difficult.
- One of the characters in season 3 parachutes onto the island with knowledge of the outside world. She suggests that the plane had indeed been recovered, but that everyone was accounted for and very dead. Her motives are unclear, but it certainly muddies the water a little bit.
- As for Hurley... well you make a few false assumptions there. For a start, they haven't been on the island for years or anything like it. Also the conditions haven't been that harsh in the sense you suggest - they had pretty good food supplies for a while actually. Some characters of the show have mentioned Hurley's weight not changing, and his response was that it'd take a while. A better explanation is that the show is a work of fiction - not a documentary - and the people on it are actors. You have to be willing to suspend your disbelief somewhat if you want to actually have fun and enjoy the show.

Maybe this will be just like the show... ridiculous plot with no explanation for anything that happens to make you keep playing. The major issue I see is how can they make this game have some sort of conclusion at all.

ik319: well that explains something. I can dig the whole bermuda triangle thing and once they cross over to fairytales my points have no bearing.

I've always seen the whole show as a desperate countermeasure to so called "reality tv".. they "survive" here too but there's a screenplay and real actors. That is why I assumed it to be realistic.

I hate "reality tv" like survivor and I also thought having a show about a crashed plane at the time was tasteless.
