No.

Probably!

I wonder what Ryan would've said if he was doing this QL

#5 Posted by Dalkalopagus (29 posts) -

Venetian Blinds is pretty great, but I think that Big Rigs may be better.

You get to move open AND close the blinds.  I have to get this game now.

#9 Posted by JeanLuc (3585 posts) -

Personally I never played it, but it seems amazing!

I'm just not ready for blinds in video games <.>

#12 Posted by ThePickle (4184 posts) -

You can raise them, and lower them. Obviously it's the greatest game ever made. 

#13 Posted by GlenTennis (3145 posts) -

Guys I wrote a walkthrough of the game, let me copy paste it here.
 
1) Raise the blinds.
2) Lower the blinds.
3) Repeat

I don't think I'm comfortable playing such an open ended game. How do I know when I should close the blinds and when I should open them?

#15 Posted by ReyGitano (2467 posts) -

You know, usually I find these threads amusing... but no. 
This time, there's nothing even redeemable here about how awful it is.

New Years resolution, let's not immediately deflate every Giantbomb gag into an insufferable running joke. Let's cut it down to bout half. Bout half.

#17 Posted by SomethingClever (419 posts) -

If they had gotten a chance to make a sequel I bet they would have added the ability to spin the little rod that lets you rotate the slats into an open position without actually raising the blinds.  Mind blowing!

@adoggz: I can't agree and say that it's the "gretest" game because that isn't a word.

Gretest game ever. Easy.

#22 Edited by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

It's certainly the gretest game over, but not the greatest. 
 
 
Woah

How crazy am I that I am considering downloading game room and spending $3 for this game.  Fairly? Extremely?

#24 Posted by guyver0 (154 posts) -

this is the first indie game. braid eat your heart out

#25 Posted by T0mF5 (929 posts) -

Venetian Blinds is not a game.

#26 Posted by Shademonger (147 posts) -

I foresee a Desert Bus style charity marathon of Venetian Blinds cropping up, if only to warrant the 3 dollar purchase and transform it into something good. Maybe I could do it....

#27 Posted by clarke0 (1077 posts) -

Not going to lie, I had a slight urge to buy this game just to show it to my friends...
 
I might still do that if the mascot is still available.

#28 Posted by AgentofChaos (1565 posts) -

Most grotesque game ever. I mean c'mon, whats wrong with Roman Shades!

#29 Posted by adoggz (2068 posts) -
@MooseyMcMan: well, I'm sorry that it isn't a "real" word but I can't think of a better word to describe this game.
#30 Posted by fox01313 (5073 posts) -

It's the greatest demo I've ever seen for the Atari2600 & has a wonderful mascot in game room, I can't really consider it a game.

#31 Posted by gbrading (2036 posts) -

Venetian Blinds is definitely up there with Desert Bus, that's to be sure.
#32 Posted by Zlimness (555 posts) -

I was disappoint at the lack of some high-level Venetian Blinds play in that video. A ranked mode would have sealed the deal. No purchase!

Yeah it is. The objective is to leave it on until you get a gold time spender medal. The game room metagame makes it a game.

It's not a gmae man... it is art!

#35 Posted by meatsack (9 posts) -

I'm waiting for VB 2K11.  There's a rumor it'll have Wii motion plus and move support for not only raising and lowering the blind, but, new in '11; you'll be able to open and close them using realistic blind shaft action.

What I know is confirmed is that they're sticking with the engine.  Crysis, GTA, you name it, none had realistic blind physics.  So I think they'll be fine.

#39 Posted by Grissefar (2842 posts) -

I don't know about this one. I might wait for the sequel: Venetian Blinds II: Revenge of Vinny the Venetian

3 dollars is a steal, should be 300.00

This thread is full of way too many people trying to be funny.

#43 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

I dunno, can you raise the blinds? 
#44 Posted by chu52 (245 posts) -

Maybe you should turn a blind eye to it all.

It's not even a contest.  Of course it's the greatest game ever!
