@RockmanBionics: I played Super Time Force at PAX. BELIEVE THE HYPE.

This. I loved Clash of Heroes so when my girlfriend bought a used iPad 2, I grabbed this to try it out. The music and sound are amazing but the storytelling is awful and made very little sense (at least at about two and a half "sessions" in where I gave up) and there's barely any gameplay. I'm not going to use the P-word to describe the narrative that sends people into a fit but yes, that's what I think it is. People can draw their own conclusions of course but as a fan of adventure games and games that do "arty" with good gameplay to back them up (i.e. Braid), I was very disappointed. If I start a game, I'll almost always finish it even if it's bad and I gave up on this one. However, the next game they just announced, now that I'm very excited for.

£3.74 for the game (which will no doubt look beautiful at 1920x1080) and the full soundtrack (which is amazing) is completely worth it for me.

Been playing it for the last hour and beat the ...ummm giant triforce. Such a great atmospheric John Carpenterish soundtrack to go with the actions. Looks beautiful and is pretty funny if you read some of the inner-thought-tweets.

Awesome. I've been waiting a really long time to play this game. It looks like a simple Zelda, which is great.

I am getting this. Looks fun.

Anyone know which song off the soundtrack they use for this video?

I bought the game for the soundtrack and want this trailer song badly.

Aaaaaand.... sold!

It's $6, stop complaining, the only thing I'm wondering is how potentially frustrating the game will be now that you have to click the icons to use them (I.e. sword, shield) but then again I've never played it due to not owning an ipod so that might be really easy

Grimrock truly is AMAZING.

Pretty dope trailer.

Does it still have the completely unnecessary Twitter integration?

On a related note: I like the music, atmosphere, and graphics of the game (in that order), but I thought pretty much all of the game's writing was trying way too hard to be aloof and too-cool-for-school, and I cannot fathom why you'd want to tweet any of it.

The writing is fucking terrible tbh. It destroys the atmosphere for me.

The more I think about it, I'm wondering whether the writing is annoying because it's in text instead of voice acted. Hell, maybe Bastion's narration would seem just as awkward if it was on-screen text.

Maybe if Sword & Sworcery could get a set of suitably eccentric voice actors who could pull off delivering those lines, it wouldn't be so bad. Still, the game's script reads like a fucking Wes Anderson movie, so you'd have to bring in the big guns for any of those lines to work. I'm talking nothing less than Jeff Goldblum and Deadpan Dramatic Bill Murray™.

Who's more super them or the Super Mario Bros?

What the fuck was that.

And really? Was this an iPhone game? Did they map the on screen controls to the goddamn mouse?! They must be insane, the keyboard is there for a raisin!

Who do I show my keyboard to to redeem my raisin?

That's for me to know and you to find out ;)

Looks pretty sweet, the music sounds excellent, may get it just for the soundtrack and to support the dev

Just bought this and played the first "Session": I'm pretty impressed. Beautiful game and utterly gorgeous soundtrack. Moving around takes a bit of getting used to but when the game sounds this excellent I can overlook it. Plus you get a digital version of the soundtrack which is very cool.

@nh_213: That's the only problem I've had so far.

So far I see no reason why it couldn't map the sword and shield to the left and right mouse button. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

I'd have paid £3.74 just for the soundtrack. Almost bought the soundtrack for £6.99 just a couple of days before they announced this.

Still have no idea what this game really is, but at least it looks cool.

Afraid not, we live in a binary world, when you can only enjoy one thing at a time. Look, I don't make the rules.

Posted by Icaria

It certainly plays like an iOS port. Otherwise great but tedious to play with a mouse.

Edited by C_Cage

I just want to know why they wouldn't just assign your sword and shield to buttons. That's how they function on the ipad. They're buttons that appear on screen for you to press because you don't have any. With a mouse and keyboard you have 100 buttons or so. It's just another example of a developer not really thinking or even wanting to think about how their game can function on another medium. I guess we should be grateful it's on the pc at all.

Other then the aforementioned control issues (which really aren't that bad at all) I highly recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of indie games in general, it has all the staple indie traits (relatively simple on the outside, thought provoking on the inside, great original soundtrack and graphics that serve the game perfectly) which make the 'genre'

I'd buy it if I was you.
