Posted by L44

Posted by Cyrisaurus

I was going to say that 1:53 isn't a long trailer, but I guess it is when NOTHING IS HAPPENING.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

Rotation! Also, Phil Fish hasn't gotten into anybody's good books by what he did at GDC.

Why dont you actually show gameplay?

Posted by The_Nubster

I still don't know what this game is.

Posted by Bevinsky

I want this now, dammit.

Posted by I_smell

I hope Indie Game The Movie comes out on DVD or something, cos I wanna watch it.

Posted by codenamechaz

There should be a policy to only show trailers for games that are actually coming out.

Posted by acelariato

So is this game a rotating screensaver? #gameplaywhereartthou?

Posted by Mento

Those sure were a bunch of levels that guy stood perfectly still in. Good trailer. Informative.

Sorry, that came off a little too snarky. I look forward to playing the final product when it comes out in three years.

Now that is how one does a trailer!

@Animasta: Phil Fish is an insane megalomaniac jackass who's been making a 2d platformer for 7 years, drunk on hype and adoration. Not sure why anyone's particularly incensed about his remarks today. Fez still looks incredible, and I'll happily play it, but yeah, don't listen to the man.

What did he do/say? I saw one interview with the guy and.. well, he seemed like your ordinary hipster indie gamedev.

You mean seizure, and yeah so did I!

Posted by BlazeHedgehog

Boy this gameplay sure looked fun
 
Oh wait. There wasn't any gameplay. At all. And with the dumb things the creator behind this game has been saying lately, I don't feel much inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt anymore.

Is Polytron a friend of Giantbomb like Big Giant Games is, because otherwise, I am want to understand why this game is such a big deal. They have yet to show actual gameplay from what I can tell, and other than it looking about as graphically impressive as Echochrome/Dig'N'Rig w/ Mode 7, what am I missing?

Posted by SYMPHONICOLOSSUS

... WHEN IS IT COMING OUT?!

Posted by codenamechaz

@Superfriend:

Short version of it: Japanese developer asked what they thought of eastern developed games during the Q&A. Fish came right out and said they sucked and proceeded to lay into every reason why he thought Japanese games sucked while the guy just had to stand there and take it.

And then was a jerk about it on Twitter afterwards.

Which, you're welcome to your opinion on other forms of development strategies, but you shouldn't be a jackass about it, especially when you can't even manage to finish your OWN game.

YOUR GAME SUCKS, PHIL FISH

Posted by InsidiousTuna

@Krakn3Dfx: Plenty of gameplay videos released in the past year, between trailers, PAX, and Indiecade. You just have to look. Game looks great.

OH SHIT A GUY HAD AN OPINION. I agree with him for the most part with exceptions (Grasshopper, Platinum, From and some parts of Nintendo)

Posted by Nomin

Looks like a modern Japanese game.

Posted by bloodsoul5

Phil fish is a douche.

Posted by Animasta

@mbr2: at least japanese developers have released games

he also said ALL modern japanese games are terrible. Sorry, that's sort of racist!

Posted by HatKing

Shit. People turned against this guy quick.

Posted by codenamechaz

@mbr2: It's one thing to have an opinion. No one's faulting him for that.

Everyone's on his case because he was an asshole about it.

That and because of his statements about Fez never coming to PC because he wanted to "preserve the sanctity" or some crap of the "console experience", even at the cost of sales, because the game was made to be played with a controller.

I think people are upset because of how and in what situation he said it, not what, though. 
I personally don't really care.
Edited by Beaudacious

But Japanese games do suck? How is it possible to come to any other consensus?

Posted by Alraiis

Trailers without gameplay aren't new. Plenty of trailers are purely cinematics or teaser images or live action or whatever. But this, this right here, this is some next-level shit.

Posted by WiqidBritt

so, are we all in agreement that Fez is just a running gag and Phil just wants to see how much media attention he can get without ever releasing a game?

Posted by Deusx

My brain just melted...

Posted by Kerned

@Animasta: I don't know if "racist" is a fair word to throw around here. If he said "all people of Japanese descent suck at game design" that would be one thing (and racist!), but that isn't what he's saying. He's just commenting on the state of game development in Japan, which ultimately is a comment on a specific group of companies and individuals, not on the Japanese people as a whole. If he were criticizing German games or British games in a similar fashion, no one would accuse him of being anti-German or anti-British.

Edited by johnLongview

Interesting. At the beginning of Indie Game: The Movie, Tommy (from Team Meat) says that "Halo and COD are shit games. I don't make shit games." Huge cheer from the crowd. It was the first public screening of the film, so I'd guess there were quite a few indie devs in the audience but... I feel like this whole GDC thing is just people disagreeing with his opinion.

And it's not racist. Racist would be more along the lines of saying "Japanese people aren't capable of making a good video game." Him saying his opinion about the state of modern development from that side of the world is just that, even if it was phrased in a really jerky way.

Oh, and I want to play this game so damn badly.

Posted by Kerned

More importantly, that music is awesome.

Posted by Gav47

There is not a single Japanese game better than this 2D platformer. FACT

Posted by fargofallout

I'm surprised someone else hasn't simply taken the idea behind this game and made a game to get it out before this actually comes out.
 
I'm curious about this, but all of the videos I have seen have just been rotating landscapes, which doesn't really say much about the game.
 
As for the Japanese thing, I'd like to say I agree with him, but the more I think about it, the more I realize they don't suck - it's just that Japanese and western tastes in video games are continuing to diverge, but some studios are trying to make Japanese-style games for the whole world, and it doesn't work like it used to. After FFXIII, I have no interest in ever playing another JRPG. I enjoyed Skyrim and Borderlands and Deus Ex and Mass Effect so much that I realized those games do RPG and RPG mechanics the way I want - I don't want to waste my time listening to soap opera melodrama bullshit during a video game, which pretty much makes playing another Final Fantasy game impossible. That doesn't mean that stuff doesn't fly in other parts of the world, but I don't think people here are looking for that anymore.

Since when did GiantBomb start showing trailers of non existent games? 5 years since this got announced, its becoming the Duke Nukem Forever of the Indie world.

Posted by WhatTheDang

Bah, you can't scare me grandpa. Fez is just a myth, like Polybius and Bio Force Ape.

1 minute in, I think I'm gonna be sick. I feel something in my throat.
 
Edit: nauseating trailer is nauseating (and asshole developer is asshole)
