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!

    Considering the nature of the game

    i dunno, i played a different scenario

    convenience store got held up, i was sneaking up an aisle behind the criminal but i failed to catch some bottles that were falling down so he saw me

    but you probably keep going, the whole game's theory seems to be to let you live with your mistakes

    I thought you could fuck up so much that you die and then you control another dude/dudette instead?

    and that's like how the story can be changed so much or something

    Well you only get a few chances to fuck up, and I'm sure the later you get into it the less forgiving it becomes, but yeah the game would suck if it strung you up by the neck everytime you didn't press the circle button.

    you get to play 4 characters and if you get killed as one of them, thats it, the story adjusts to it and youre done with 3 characters

    if all 4 characters die the story ends there

    The demo I saw was on the ps3, I have no idea if it's exclusive though

    And I feel like if the game progressed no matter what, that would make the game really, really bad. Like, insanely bad.

    Besides like, the very first screenshots released what seems like a decade ago, that video is the first thing I've seen of the game.

    Between this and ME2, I HAVE to get an xbox. I thought I was good on not having to get one for awhile, but apparently not.

    I've been jonesin' for a game like this forever, it seems. RPGs like mass effect, dragon age, fallout etc just don't feel natural in the choices like this seemingly does

    I'm very interested in the kind of game this could turn out to be. How challenging are the, er, physical demands of the game ? My reflexes do not compare favourably with those of a parapalegic with Parkinson's, so I'd be concerned about actually being able to fully experience the game.

    I was too, but I'm sure I'll get a chance to play it on a friend's ps3 or something.

    I used to have a really great collection of 360 games, but unemployment took care of that rather quickly. I'm hoping to get another xbox soon for mass effect 2, and someday when games drop in price, rebuild what I used to have. I'm sure Bayonetta will be on that list.

    Also there has got to be a ton of stuff they put in the game if there is the option to keep going after screwing up. Instead of only having to write and animate/program/everything what happens if you succeed and just make you repeat it til you beat it, they have to do everything for failing too.

    That is cool.

    i wrote an article a while back about using text adventures to prototype gaming mechanics, and that's actually a central tenet of IF design

    gotta spend as much effort on the failures as the successes if you want the player to feel like he's got a choice

    So is the crux of the actual gameplay just lining up lines with lines so bad things don't happen?

    I am imagining doing mundane tasks in a game but fucking them all up slightly. Ripping your newspaper as you open it. Spilling orange juice all over the table during breakfast. Cutting yourself shaving and then dropping the toilet paper on the wet floor as you try to get a small piece to put on the cut

    I am loving this game
