Yeah that guy was a hoot. Don't own a Vita though.

@humanity: @brandino: hello! i designed this game and that is (a fictionalized version of(???)) me in that video.

aha! you see, you are in fact moving colored blocks -- as in bejeweled, you can swap two blocks as long as swapping them puts either block into a group of three or more.

HOWEVER, the blocks don't clear themselves! you have to draw a path over the blocks to clear them.

you can use star tiles to link together two groups of different-colored blocks. or three groups, or four, or five, or six . . . if you have enough stars.

once you have "built the road", you have to "drive the car" -- draw a path through the blocks that gets as many blocks as possible and doesn't double back over itself. so it goes from bejeweled to tetris to . . . a maze-game sort of thing?

in short, if bejeweled is like holding up a liquor store, ten by eight is like stealing the mona lisa, getting through customs with it at the airport, and then selling it to someone who isn't going to kill you before they give you the money (if you're good at the game, that hypothetical person also wouldn't kill you AFTER they give you the money).

in summary:

So...is it physically impossible for game designers to not dress like hipsters? Or at least not wear those annoying hipster glasses?

For some reason I want to drink a gratuitous amount of Whey Milkshakes.

Would pay $3 for that just based on this awesome video but I don't even know someone that may know someone that has a Vita.

Pretty much. I'm not even sure if I know someone who knows someone who knows what a Vita is.

@knives: tim rogers is not capable of expressing ANYTHING in three words or less. Verbosity is his superpower. Brevity is his kryptonite.

this reminds me of the dyad trailer, also the dude on it kinda sorta looks like the same dude with different hair?

either way I love this style of trailer.

edit: oh nvm, action button entertainment, it is the same dude.

@bizen247: hey, i wear big glasses because i have a lazy eye, ok? i have been wearing big glasses with thick black frames since i was a child growing up on army bases, where big black frames are considered "army issue".

and i'm wearing a god darn sweatshirt in this video. i mean, come on! it's just a sweatshirt. it's hanes. it cost *literally* $4 brand new at target. for the love of god, man, cut me a break! i'm just wearing normal, practical clothes.

have you ever worn a baseball cap . . . when you're not on the way to pitch nine innings at a baseball game? have you ever worn sunglasses? i mean, will your eyes MELT if you don't wear sunglasses? have you ever worn jeans on a warm day? have you ever worn shorts on a warm day? when you're at home and the door is locked and the curtains are closed, do you take all of your clothes off immediately, because no one is looking at you?

what i am saying is, have you ever worn clothes indoors, in an air-conditioned or heated room?

what i am trying to tell you is: fashion is everywhere. it's not just in the people you don't like the look of. humans are weird, yo. humans are born "hipsters". so just be cool!

I am one of the two people in the world who own a Vita so I'm going to buy this. Good trailer!

@cviii: Thanks for the explanation as much as that video is an "experience" I didn't quite get the game mechanics!

Also IN YOUR FACE @brandino

How have I not thought of that before! My life is genuinely changed for the better! Now I have to get a Vita!

@cviii This convinced me to buy your game! How long before I become a healthier, happier me?
