Oh that's okay, you can fucking keep my Minecraft-y look.

I just want Bethesda to make another Call of Cthulhu game..

Yes this! 100 times this!

The idea of a Lovecraft roguelike sounds amazing! Just so fucking sick of the Minecraft 'homage'.

Is this 2013's Check Yourself Before You Wriggety-Wreck Yourself or or Things That Need to "Take a Break" Before They Become the “Worst Trend”

@deckard: I've often had this feeling about talking to someone on a BBS about twitter.

As a huge fan of H.P Lovecraft, this is about as far from his literary themes as you could possibly get. This just looks awful.

Poor choice of music

No offense but I am real tired of this look. It's just looking uglier and uglier with every clone.

Let's stop calling this art style "minecraft" and start calling it what it is: polygons inspired by pixel art.

Lets stop calling this an art style altogether. Why are these people under the impression that anyone actually liked the (vanilla) look of Minecraft? I can barely stand it myself and I generally like playing Minecraft.

Over the blocky minecraft thing.

It just seems like developers are jumping in on it because it's win-win for them. Easier and quicker to create content and they don't have to bother making highres textures and it's popular right now.

ITT: people who have no idea how a video game is made and how much work goes into it.

It seems Minecraft has caused "Hideous" to count as an art style now, what a shame.

Nothing says HP Lovecraft and unimangiable horror like ska music.

The game looks really cool, but the trailer music they used here is so dumb. I hope it's just a stupid joke and not indicative of the game's actual tone, because it'd be a really awful missed opportunity.

technically patrick called it a minecraft look, to me this is reminding me a lot of 90s dos games due to these enemies, bent textures, traps, etc

The bent textures are specifically evoking the PlayStation 1 to me, almost all polygonal PS1 games had that issue due to the lack of a z-buffer. There are certainly other things that look more Minecrafty in there too, but I wouldn't call it a straight up Minecraft clone either.

I do get a vibe of cynicism from the entire thing though, throwing everything that's been notable in video game pop culture for the past 3 years and hoping that'll make this game sell. The PS1 texture glitches and the music are the only things that make me think it could actually be a genuine love letter to 90's games.

That...looks...terrible.

It's like it's Minecraft got turned into a first-person shooter.

This game does not trailer well, but it plays well.

Having seen the quicklook, I've come back to this trailer and wonder what evil other-dimensional being possessed them to make such a TERRIBLE trailer for a pretty good game. The game doesn't have hipster-polka music.
