Too Human adds Freya

Too Human adds Freya

Silicon Knights announces some details about a female character for its action videogame Too Human - it is Freya, which is a fan of cyberspace and a real tactician able to communicate with the spirits of the computer world to interact with the real one. Therefore, she's more a magic user than a physicial warrior.

I thought Freya was meant to be drop dead gorgeous and why is she blushing so much, where's Thor's hammer hey ;)

If nerdy chicks actually looked like that, we would have world peace.

she almost looks sunburnt. :/ Although I do like that see looks more human kinda like Alyx in HL2. Too many games are making women look un-natural.

Well at least they didn't make her look like a slut, which is a good thing.

I'm pretty sick of seeing most girls in games looking like sluts with super enlarged breasts. Talkin about Soul Calibre 4 here mainly.

I was writting about this game this morning for my job, and it has been in development for almost ten years :/ First shown at E3 '99.

Looks kind of weird imho...Mass effect's characters look much more natural and human-like. Plus, does she ever smile?

Emos don't smile

The game we see today is not the same game they worked on 10 years ago. Only the idea of having Norse mythology mixed with hi-tech has remained.
It's more fair to say that the game has been put on hold for 10 years, and then was completely remade from scratch in 2004.

There's a good backstory to the development of Too Human here:

I don't know but I got a bad feeling about this game...
the story sounds awesome and the graphics looks good for a project from the ps1 generation to this generation, but the gameplay it's kinda retarded...

Its a hack and slash, with more variety then most. Its looking pretty good to me. Maybe its just not really your cup of tea. =p

Well, this game certainly is no looker as far as i'm concerned but the skill tree videos sparked an interest in me. For the first time since announcement i'm feeling a bit curious about this game.

Actually, as it stands now i'll pick it up at release. It's supposed to have local multiplayer, right?

Can't say i think she looks particularly Swedish. Maybe from a prejudice perspective she looks Swedish, but i cant say that she reflects some sort of ideal that women try to live up to here. At least that's my opinion, as a Swede :P

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Surely you can spot the differences. (2 Hours ago)
