Would love to see more videos where Vinny sings and talks about Hyperion.

Posted by defcomm

oh gosh i thought vinny was going to say, "when there's grass on the field, play ball!"

Posted by xite

Vinny should read about New York's Brother Island if he wants to see nature taking something back.

Wow that's pretty fascinating. @vinny should check it out.

I'm glad that games like this exist, but i have know interest in playing it

Posted by Quipido

The part where you guys were thinking about a specific typ of games being a result of a generation feeling certain way etc. is actually pretty great observation. I recommend a documentary "Everything is a Remix" where those ideas are explored - I find some parts of it fascinating. Leads to a conclusion that every form of art is basically a result of the state the society is in. For example many inventions were made in several places almost simoutaneously with no direct connection to each other.

I'm really surprised this isn't an oculus game.

There's about to be a Quick Look, hopefully that convinces. Been playing it and worth it just for the breathtaking views.

@murdoc_: oh give me a break haha. These types of games are a fad now due to Day-Z. The end, no philosophical deep meanings. The survival game fad is an extension of the zombie survival game fad

Welcome to the weed-apocalypse were everyone was too stoned to continue upkeep and maintenance on buildings and infrastructure so it all eroded away and was reclaimed by nature.

so. damn. good.

What you guys mentioned about the survival genre being a weird occurrence in a lot of games these days -- I think you're on to something. I think a lot of us might feel a need to move back to more simple lifestyles (even if we love technology), but are not sure how to go about that.

These days it's survival games, but in the past there have been games like Harvest Moon to kind of fulfill that wish for a "simple life" (or going *cough*"back to nature"*cough*)

Had me at Danzig, lost me at Mogwai. then it had me again cause this games looks pretty interesting.

Now I want 5 hours non-stop of this type of instrumental music. Anyone happen to know where to get such thing? I dont know what the name of this music genre. (soft rock? rift??)

Posted by Manhattan_Project

I guess I'm the only one that thinks this game looks incredibly boring. And I liked Proteus.

@limiter31: Would this suffice? Alex mentioned it being Post-Rock

Posted by coaxmetal

I love Mogwai. Saw them live recently. Incredible. New album is good, but Mr Beast is def my favorite.

This music is perfect for a Cormac McCarthy reading! Though I wouldn't really ascribe it to being post rock. I'd say in spirit it's more like Loren Mazzacane Connors, John Fahey, Ry Cooder or some of Jim O Rourke's work. Absolutely beautiful though. Post rock is a vague genre to begin with so yeah whatever. Check out the Kranky label for great post rock!

What happened after the screen went black? Was their a game over screen?

Vinny, you need to watch Life After People. It might be an overused trope, and may be accelerated for dramatic effect, but nature would have no problem taking over humanity's works if people weren't around making sure shit was cleaned.

Yea Hyperion is the shit! That book is the equivalent of Zardoz in terms of bizzare sci-fi.

It's sooo goood!

I hate to see that evening sun go down, Vinny...

Posted by shiny_llama

I lost it when Vinny read Alex's note as the narrator at the end there. He reminded me of ResearchIndicates' LP of Jurassic Park Trespasser.

Don't follow the crow, kids. Just say no.

Watching this again for the music. I should just get the OST.

Interesting game. Probably not for me but the QL discussion went to some excellent places. As did the comments, because I know I'll be listening to this right now:

So it's the official Agalloch video game?

16 minutes in and it reminds me of the more mellow Opeth stuff. Though I almost have no frame of reference for music like this anymore. It's been a long time since I listened to anything but old favorites in this 'genre', whatever it might be.

Edited by cooljammer00

Love hearing Vinny and Alex talk about weed as if it's this massively foreign concept to them. Especially with what Alex has admitted on this site in the past, and rumors of a Bombin episode where he forgot to move his bong out of frame.

Proteus meets Shelter. This is exactly my kind of game. Also reminds me of MirrorMoon EP.

I wasn't interested in this game until I heard this description.

Anyway, listed to Our Fortress Is Burning, it's one of the best things they've done.
