Alwa's Awakening is taking us back in time, back when the Nintendo Entertainment System was at its best and 2D platform-adventure games started to become popular. Elden Pixels' title undeniably conveys a sense of nostalgia with its Metroidvania structure, its simple visuals and its excellent chiptune music. The main character's ability to create small blocks is a bit reminiscent of Trine and the 45 minutes or so we have played so far have been very nice. We hope you'll have the curiosity to take a look at our gameplay footage to see if there's something in it for you.
@MrWhite: yea, i think they did a really good job with that scene. At first i tried to remember the shots of her from the original to figure out if they re-used footage before the angles changed more. (4 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, that's a good point. It's still noticeable, but it's literally so close that any kind of anomaly will be spotted and give that uncanny valley. The rendering though is flawless. (4 Hours ago)
as for Tarkin, i think they should have gone with the stand-in actor with some make-up/prosthetics. just looking at him in the making-of material he looks close enough. (4 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: she was kinda stiff/robotic in the original BR too. Like a doll, which they obviously aimed for, which helps sell the 2049 version. (4 Hours ago)
