@Random Thank you so much Rob! Hope you enjoy it and whatever feedback you may have would be really appreciated!

@LLK Thank you! :slight_smile:

I’m well into it (just finished ‘docks’) and very much enjoying it. Headphones are a necessity to capture the very nice audioscape you paint. So thanks!

i doubt i would like the game but i definitely like this article:

Rossum Morpheus will model all sorts of hollow cavity responses (in stereo!). Then just verb it up.

Expensive, maybe, but you don’t need to find and handle a skull.


#369

It’s worth mentionning the game is quite a special one, with a place of its own, even compared to most of the indie production.


#370

second that. my #1 game of 2016. the atmosphere and sound design are really unmatched. the whole thing is great, but the final 20 minutes are :open_mouth:

If any of you are interested in more story-based games I’d definitely recommend playing Horizon Zero Dawn on the PS4.
I recently finished the game and I was blown away not only by the gameplay but also by the incredibly rich story behind the game.
As for the game mechanics, I loved how at first I was super hesitant to confront any of the enemies but by the end of the game I wasn’t thinking twice before going after the biggest and deadliest robots. The whole gameplay felt natural and empowering.
I also felt that the story is very relevant since it deals with consequences of unsafe AI / robots (tho in a very dystopian way).


#372

yes i am just waiting to have another play through inside. that end (and apparently there are unlockable variations on the end?) totally blew my mind.


#373

yea there is an alternate ending but when I read up on it, it sounded like too much trouble so I just watched a youtube of it.


#374

oh i don’t doubt it’s merits! but if Inside anything like Limbo, it’s just not a gameplay loop that I enjoy very much regardless of the quality of its design (and the same applies to other evidently great games like “another world,” “abe’s oddysee”, or “braid.” oh well, my loss.)

I thought the skull filter sounded pretty sweet! just a bonus that it happens to be the product of a preposterous concept.

i’ve been dipping back into Darkest Dungeon and Ironclad Tactics recently. both being suitable for short bouts of “relaxation”


#375

Yeah that’s actually why I came to tell you it’s special, it has actually nothing much to do with limbo except for the black and white art style. I think it’s much better, as a game and as an artpiece (I think Limbo is great just not THAT great)

Edit: Pretty much in the same way The Witness has nothing to do with Braid, except maybe braid was more carefully crafted and matured than Limbo.


#376

Keep all the great recommendations coming! Just bought Inside and Starman and loving them both so far.

Lines is pretty much my only source for intel on good games…:sunglasses:

Annnnd you got a very good review on Gamekult, for the frenchies in the place here it is :

Super happy for you! (And for those who don’t know / read French, basically it says it’s pretty, it’s a good and well thought out adventure/puzzle game and has its own character, which for a website that’s known for how harsh and critical it is with games, is a very good review!)


#380

Wow! Thank you so much for the info Louis! Great great news to start the day with a big smile! And thanks for the translation summary as well, sometimes I feel my French is a bit rusty :blush::blush:

Butterflies are free :+1:
