This will be mine! Challenging platformer, PATRICK STEWART, HG Wells, Tripods, and references to Chahi/Cuisset/Mechner?!

Omg, even if this just comes a little close to "Another World".... I just wish the animations were better, but Patrick Stewart redeems it.

Reminds me little of LIMBO, but unlike that game, War of the Worlds looks really challenging. Did i mention what some of the achievements looks like?

''Old School'' - Complete the game without dying once
''I Am Arthur Clark'' - Complete the game in one sitting without dying

:D

edit: It's out next week? Sweet. I have some spare MSP.
According to Major Nelson, the game will cost only 800MSP - http://majornelson.com/2011/10/18/coming-soon-to-t... :)

Sort of reminds me of Elevator Action... Only with Aliens and shit.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
