Our videos of Troll and I

Troll and I is a low-budgeted game trying to propose an action-adventure experience borrowing from AAA titles, with Uncharted-styled platforming, crafting and cooperation with an AI (or a friend - local only). The main problem with such titles is that their technical limitations can weigh down on their potential, which is more or less what seems to be happening here. Character models and animations are too dated to make the game truly immersive, though the environment itself looks ok overall - provided you don't mind real-time growing grass. Gameplay mechanics are also too stiff and clunky from what we've seen, and contrary to a game like Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, it seems to fail to deliver when it comes to atmosphere. Now don't take our word for it and check out our videos to let us know what you think. The game is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One (and soon on Switch).

While reading the technical problems, I immediately thought of Mass Effect: Andromeda, which is a part of the problem with that game.

As for this game, it looks bad imho. And the title, while accurate, feels like it's celebrating the internet's worst users. Styx: Shards of Darkness and Technomancer are examples of games that manage to do great things in spite of the low budget.

this is from the guys behind such polished classics are "alekhines gun" and "Lichdom: Battlemage" and the VR masterpeice "Loading Human"

lol, yeah, i'd stay way clear of this.

    asdfg @nostradamus: yup but queue times seems to be brutal atm. I queued for hours and didn't get in so might be best to hold off for a while if you don't have the patience. (6 Hours ago)
