Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

If you're a terrible person, you can masturbate to it!

Most other people though like the game for it's running and whatnot.

I myself picked up the game last night (for unknown reasons it was released early at EB Australia) and have been having a smashing time rolling and tumbling.

My only criticism is that it appears to be a short game. But I imagine doing the time trials and getting the achievement times will be fun times.

What do you think Glossolalia?

    When I was playing this though I kept thinking how awesome it would be if there was a level editor attached to it also.

    DLC would be awesome for this game.

    Have you tried playing without Runner Vision? Stale says that makes the game super harder.

    I liked doing it in the demo, even though it takes off the pretty red.

    To be honest, I haven't really been paying attention to the red things, I mean they are there but if you look around you can usually find a quicker way regardless. Maybe I just haven't gotten far enough in the game where you need the runner's vision.

    I do like the colour that the red adds though.

    I don't think it would work.
    The game so heavily depends upon precise level design, anything that wasn't built, rebuilt, playtested over and over, rebuilt again etc etc would play like absolute shit. The platforms have to be perfectly set apart, bars at the exact right height and distance, there's too much to get right.

    There are so many ways to get from point A to point B in the parts of the demo (and I assume the rest of the game as well) it'd take forever for people to design maps that had more than one or two routes.

    If it was a robust editor it could handle it.

    Like if the editor would show the maximum jump distance you could theoretically make with full speed/half speed etc it would be easy to place things.

    There could be checks for that in the software. Just simple reminders if something impossible is set up or worthless.

    a designer could easily be made to do distances automatically it would be nowhere near as impossible as you make it out be

    people would go crazy with level editors though

    you just gotta look at somethin like line rider to see that
    you can try for like an hour and maybe get a couple of hills
    other dudes make the most elaborate shit

    alternate paths would probably suffer most i think

    I'm just saying that level design is the single most important part of this game and it would be a lot harder than you think to make a level that was any fun to play.

    That's why a good editor would also have a rating system. Enough people are on live to have a million playthroughs rooting out the worst levels

    holy shit I wonder if it's a well made bag. if so, I really want a messenger bag like that.

    The only thing on the outside of it is a small Mirror's Edge logo, hardly anyone will know what it is, besides a neat design thing.

    If you want red, you can pay 130 bucks for the Collector's Edition, it comes with a Timbuk2 bag:
