If it's in the same price point of Child of Light I'll probably pick it up. It definitely looks interesting.

Oh? By all means do tell.

Bring it to Wii U! It's already an indie platform of choice

It's a kickstarter game. So if it gets funded we could request a Wii U stretch goal.

Is there really a need to make everything a derivative of everything else?
vallencer  +   298d ago
Recognition is how people relate to things as well as make a purchase. It's normal. It also makes things easy to explain. You say something is like zelda and you immediately have an idea of what it's going to be like.
randomass171  +   298d ago
It's nearly impossible to be completely original in this day and age. Gotta take inspiration from somewhere.
thehobbyist  +   298d ago
Not really derivative so much as it won't sell without a frame of reference. Consumer's today aren't very willing to just jump into an experience without a frame of reference. Because they feel more secure spending money on it if they're told it will be like another thing that they spent money on and didn't end up regretting later.

Boy, it's always a good sign when a headline doesn't include the name of the actual game. Either the author has no idea what they're doing (the most likely reason around here), or the game itself can't stand on its own merits and rely on the half-assed descriptions somewhere in the body of the article.

Either way, I'm a bit more interested in this title now, if only because it was listed as PC-only just a few days ago when Kotaku covered it. Disturbing reliance on furries aside, I'll try to remember this one-- not as if there's a whole lot of RPGs in this style in the pipeline anyway.

Why use the term 'disturbing', and why do you assume it has a 'reliance on furries'? Furries is a term used to describe people who really like anthropomorphic characters. Anthropomorphic is the term used to describe humanized animals.

I didn't hear many complaints back in the day when Star Fox had all anthropomorphic characters. I personally like the variation. Although I'm not really into the whole 'furry' thing, it's nice to have non-human characters at times.

I suppose I should have worded that more carefully-- it was brash calling anthropomorphic characters disturbing. However, the design and prevalence of the animal variant characters seems to be catering to a specific group of people, i.e. furries, without so much of an offering of "variation" as it is fan service of sorts.

It's just off-putting. I don't expect everyone to feel the same way, but I'm certainly not alone-- I checked out the article I cited previously, and quite a few people seem to share my sentiments on the subject.
randomass171  +   298d ago
I kinda see what you're saying. I prefer human characters to animal characters usually. But Star Fox is an exception to the rule, I think. So who knows? Maybe this game will be one too.
Relientk77  +   298d ago
Definitely keeping this game on my radar

Story seems pretty bland

"Yes it's inspired by Nintendo games... no it's not coming to the Wii U"

That's some serious trolling lol
randomass171  +   298d ago
Bummer for Nintendo fans indeed. Complete shame. :(

Xenoblade, nuff said
kewlkat007  +   298d ago
That's some big words

I asked for this game on PSN in another thread, and my wish is granted. =)
