Ori and the Blind Forest is proof that those who want a game with a deep story and top-notch gameplay can have their cake and eat it to.
Fantastic job Moon Studios. Lead by example.
Wow.what a masterpiece. Its all about Quality and MS has been pushing out some really great titles lately. Kamiya said its something he noticed while working with MS on Scalebound according to him "they keep him and the team on their toes and it has helped make the game even better".. So glad Phil is the boss now. i'm sure this trend will continue even QB's rumored delay will turn out great in the end. Great job Moon Studios Those interested in getting digital copies you can get codes from Amazon right now(xbox one) http://www.amazon.com/Ori-B...
That is something. I believe MS discovered the team 4 years ago and took up the publishing rights to their project after a year of them developing it. 4 years of this game. And I'm glad their blood, sweat tears and dedication paid off. That last comment was a bit out there but I'm just glad the team came through.
its kinda amazing how Don Mattrick has tarnished the xbox brand. I like Phil Spencers game focus
Game looks beautifull.
It's always nice to see these small indie games be received well. It's just awesome for the industry in general.
Pretty big project that's heavily supported, marketed and published by Microsoft. Let's give credit where credit is due. No one deserves more than Moon Studios for this one, but it seems like Microsoft has done a great job too.
MS is bringing the games
Indie's can be awesome, cant they!
In my opinion indies are ones delivering great new IPs to the market. First Helldiver's now this. Its been a great year for indie games with more Games to come like Rime for example.
With crowd funding and publishers like M$, they seem to be betting more help if their projects show potential. I will admit that I am starting to see more quality projects coming from indies. It is moving from a diamond in the ruff scenario, to a place of spotty potential. So you don't have to look as hard for a decent game. It is getting better, because there are more people with money and resources helping to fund potential (M$, Sony, Crowd funding...)
Yeah wish everyone would give these indie teams more credit instead of writing them off. This is why Ive always said, indie devs are the future because they bring ideas most AAA devs wouldn't even think of. Edit: Funny thing is ppl yell out where the games at like Indie devs are nothing special but forget QB is created by an indie dev and now indie devs are cool lol. Keep it real folks.
@Life hopefully now you see how fun, interesting and important indies can be.
Not Microsoft Indie is bringing the games. It's a great 2D game
Good for Moon Studios and Xbox. This gen is looking pretty good so far in the games department for Xbox. Hope they can keep this up long term.
I'm so happy for High Moon. It's crazy to think that this was developed by a small team that was spread all around world, many of whom have never even met each other. I feel bad for people that write off smaller games trying to pigeonhole them as,"Just indies." Oftentimes, as you see in music as well, independent creators are where the true passion resides. I can't wait until Wednesday.
Glad this game is getting good reviews, it looks like a lot of love went into every aspect of the game. Not just graphics, but story, gameplay and a passion for bringing a great platformer to the new consoles. Can't wait for Cuphead next.
This looks like it's for fruits! What the hell is up with reviewers these days? Wtf??? And then fanboys trying to brag about this sweet pee $h!t? Lmao!
....i wanna feed the troll!
not a troll, a troll is humorous, this guy is just salty, hes crying in his pillow as we type
You know that awkward feeling whenever you are embarrassed for someone else...
You are the wurst.
Everyone has different taste in games. Not everything has to be a shooter for ppl to enjoy.
Man that's racist. Why would MS make a game just for fruits? What about the vegetables? This is vegetablism!
Support this game people, they deserve it.
Is this game similar to Dust?! I played that game and it was fun but i didnt really get into the story @objdadon- never go full retard
Quality over quantity by Microsoft. I will have that any day of the week.
Another good indie, Can we stop now to say that indie are no good. Maybe now that Xbo as one the Xbo fan will stop bashing anything indie on ps platform. Transistor is also an awesome game that you can play on both pc and ps4. Or give Velocity X2 a try another good game. Stop with the fud about indie once and for all.
Helldivers looks like a lot of fun as well which can be played on PC if you dont own a PS4. Plus a lot of people are saying good things about OlliOlli 2. Now that you mentioned Transistor the game before it Bastion is coming to consoles which is great to see. Indies are really knocking it out of the park lately and hopefully people will start to give them the respect they deserve.
Helldivers is lots of fun. just got that on my ps4. a friend recommended it anyways you should look into getting ori.it doesn't matter if you playing on pc or xbox one everyone needs to experience this game. its a masterpiece
@Christ I honestly don't know if it will run on my Ivybridge Ultrabook.
I am hoping the indie bashing will stop. But look at the disagree i get. I said it numerous time. Back in the days pretty much all dev were indie studio and no one was giving a flying **** about it or i guess most people did not know since the game distribution required a disc printing. But now its not good enough to those l33t kids. Journey was one of the best experience of last gen. I still play Pixeljunk Monster weekly, I don't understand why people are looking down on those titles. Most of those are also available on Pc so what gives?
Not all Indies are good, so that's different issue. PlayStation is becoming the home of Indies, however a high number of Indie games on PS4 are not worth playing. Only a few like Rime and no man's sky is to be considered AA indie game. The rest are all retro style games with more about fun than a masterpiece.
its because sony approves any old junk onto their machine, they think just because its indie its gonna be good Lol, no mans sky looks beast tho, this is why microsoft has a great filtering system in place for the xbox one
Indies are good. But there are very few indies that are actually worth playing. Ori is a great example of the few indie that ARE actually worth playing. But these don't come around often.
Well OlliOlli 2 and Helldiver's came shortly before it and those Indies are quite good with metas of 81 and 85. Not to mention Rime and The Witness are coming out this year and those look like quality indie titles. Good indie games come out often. You just need to know where to find them.
Already a GOTY candidate. People are flipping over this game. Can't wait for tomorrow night.
People keep saying this is an indie, it is not listed under [email protected] and received full backing from MS. This is a AAA title that is priced like an indie.
Actually Moon Studios is an Indie Dev.
