Always up for metroidvania-style stuff, but still wondering how much Orson Scott Card will have to do with the project.

I agree with Vinny: it reminds me of Flashback.

I doubt they will release it with bugs like that. Hopefully anyway.....

I think it was "gotta love live demos". It kinda sorta sounded like Jeff. Its possible. He seems to like to mess with CliffyB as well. So its plausible.

For a Live arcade game this looks pretty awesome.

Looking forward to finding out more

That looks pretty sweet. Is there a release date?

Posted by uskomaton

Well, this definetly looks like something I would pick up.

Oh man I was expecting to see Kudo Sonoda at the end of the video going : "Well BAM, there it is."

Dope.  It's great to see a 2D action game get this much attention from a major developer.  Rearmed was great, and Shadow Complex seems like a logical extension of the same idea.

This game is great.  Based on Orson Scott Card, that pretty much says it all.  I can't wait for this one.

I feel so bad for those guys. The game looks friggin' sick, but they get two broken microphones and then the boss glitches out haha. Those guys were probably face-in-hands sobbing after they walked off the stage.

Looks pretty interesting.

And he said he would never want to get back to the old days...

Maybe he meant he didnt want to get back to being basement coders. He loves sidescrollers I guess.. nice mash-up of many games! looks quite interesting. Dont quite see the selling point for it. Only the weapons seems different (and ofcourse the levels)

This guy has great reaction time. He didn't hesitate and just finished the demo. Industry needs more people like that :)

Looks bad ass. Phantom boss not withstanding of course.

That looks awesome.  We need more games like BC:R, could be the start of a good trend!
