Random Lesser Game News Talk & Stuff

Postby eVoL » Tue Jan 14, 2014 8:39 am

Because not every game that deserves a mention can really support an entire thread to itself....

One of which
Nidhogg
Holy shit that looks amazing! Its like Price Of Persia, Bushido Blade and Samurai Gunn had a baby. So tempted to grab it were I not skint. Might grab it in a month or two.

Bushido blade had better graphics seventeen years ago.

If you look in the dictionary for "indie-nerd hipster bait"... :-k

Looks like it could be a fun game, but I'm not going to pretend I'm impressed by the style.

Saw this and was wondered if there was any bandwagon they're not jumping on? Fuckin' indie games, right?

Its not the graphics that do it for me, theyre functional, but its how fluid and dynamic the combat seems to be.

Ok. I'm coming around on Nidhogg. I still find the look of the game jarring (it's one thing to keep the style simple so that the fast action of the game can be easily parsed, it's another thing to drench it in Jeff Minter-esque psychedelia), it's esoteric name smacks of pretentiousness (what's the World Tree got to do with anything?) and there's something about it's prolonged development is so indie-darling that it hurts.

But!
It does looks like it could be a massive laugh. Begrudging respect. Harumph. [-(

Looks hilarious. I imagine it'll be a great game to set up a torny on with your mates.

It looks really good fun, but probably only if the person you are playing against is sitting next to you.

Near the end of its development Mark Essen realised that the game had great potential to be played competitively. He took it to Evo to watch the best take a shot at it. So he went back and completely redesigned an online mode and tweaked a few things for the competitive scene, which delayed the game another 18 months or so. Nothing "indie darling" about that.

New medieval Everything Simulator on Kickstarter, it looks lovely but has no chance of being finished.
