wahoo

I've seen some vids of this game before. It's pretty unique despite its looks.

Also, should grotesque transdimensional beings talk?

Shit

It would be really cool if not every other modern horror video game had a Lovecraftian theme.

Pat sold me on this.

I would really like to play this, but it seems to be one of those first person games (fairly rare these days thankfully) that make me really motion sick. Will enjoy the Quick Look though.

Really nonplussed since the artstyle is ripped (minecraft anyone?) and the sound design really poor (when the frog things attack a guy just says ah and oh! really??); honest opinion. The constant discordent pads in the background are the only thing that creates some tension; the gfx and the sounds do not support that.

Now I can see others, esp. ones who like the mc-esque artstyle get into it; and so they should. But for me, thats nothing. I think this game would benefit a lot from overhauled, better quality gfx and sfx.

Please don't stab Drew for using the term rogue-like. C'mon. It's Drew. Don't do it.

Awww...did that 3 seconds of Dota 2 talk annoy you? there there

Posted by spiketail

Actually seeing Eldritch played sold me on it. Description or screenshots didn't do it.

Soooooo want to buy this. 20% off on Steam till 11/1. But I have a giant stack of games I should be playing.

I fucking love Drew's enthusiasm.

The sound design of those faux Deep Ones is amazing.

"Oohp."

"Huh?"

"Oh."

It's safe to assume it did. No need for the question.

You clutch the strange blue orb. It hums in response to your touch and vibrates as if trying to shake itself free.

As your fingers tighten around it, you are struck with the sudden and unbidden insight: that within this unearthly sphere, the soul of the ancient deity Dagon is beginning to wake.

A vision drifts through your mind like a long-forgotten memory of mortal fear, unchecked destruction, and then a clandestine ritual and uneasy peace.

The vision fades, giving way to a sick feeling of emptiness. The soul of Dagon stirs in the silence.

You can now unlock the next book in the library.

O god this is not on youtube yet so i have to use this awful video player :(

Posted by BluPotato

I'm down for rouge-like games. I love any game that is full of randomness and re-playability.

Posted by MEATBALL

For a moment there I thought we weren't going to get any Quick Looks this week. But I should have known that NOTHING STOPS LA BOMBA GIGANTE

Posted by ghostyTrickster

Aw man if Drew had just gone in the exit the next book would have unlocked!

Posted by KillDeer

@drazat: It is on youtube already. Make sure you go to the GiantBomb youtube page because subscriptions have been broken lately and a lot of stuff doesnt show up in your feed right now.

I hear all the cool kids are way into reductionism these days.

You know, this keeps proving true to me. QL's kind of rock, as long as it's accepted the QL'er is going in often blind. I know there is stuff on You-tube, but I tend to only go there for music and what is in my watch history.

Meh, this is for the ironic crowd, I'd rather play a real game.

The squiggly lines make me a bit nauseous.

Spookin with Drewbert.

Posted by Scrawnto

The arms are really the only bit that bothers me graphics-wise, and I actually think the idea that the monsters just sound like people is pretty funny.

I might check this out sometime.

@bybeach: Yup, Watching QLs has sold me on way more games than reading previews and reviews ever has. I know that QLs came about because Jeff and Ryan had such a small staff and budget that just showing off a game for a few minutes was the most practical way of covering most games, but it's such an amazing little feature.

This game looks kinda interesting too, a bit burnt out on the roguelike/rougelite genre right now though.

Posted by MeatSim

The market really has been oversaturated with roguelikes and Minecraft inspired games, but this still seems cool.

It's safe to assume it did. No need for the question.

The question was rhetorical. Assuming the first statement is true is part of the second statement. I'm assuming you knew that as well, so there's no need for me to point this out either.

I'm saying it's all pointless. I'm pointless. You're pointless. Everything is pointless.

Good thing this is not a horror game then. =)

I like Drew's "WOOP" sound.

For anyone that can get past the visuals (I'll admit, I don't like them much myself) this game has A LOT going for it. It is one of the rare games I've played recently that really lets you choose how you play and all the different ways are viable. Stealth around (probably my favorite - leads to a lot of tense moments), kill everyone, run past everyone, blow up everything - all totally doable and fun.

Posted by RobotSquad

I'm still fully enthusiastic about Roguelikes and Roguelike-likes and RogueLites and what have you.

Jeff and Brad are against lean? What the hell is wrong with leaning?

Posted by Lanechanger

Drew's uttered words/sound when he panics is amazing

Posted by Levio

Spelunky revolved around having extremely risky situations and tackling those with appropriate risk-vs-reward strategies, but in this game every enemy is slow moving with a giant hitbox... why bother even getting the gun and ammo when you can knife things infinitely?

Hopefully the later levels have actual enemies and traps that don't just sit there waiting for you to be an idiot and walk on top of gigantic spikes.

Posted by Adaptor

Is it me only just noticing or has Drew become a lot better at doing Quick Looks?

This made me want to play NetHack.

That's exactly what The Old Ones want you to think.

Good. Gooooood.

Two things: First, I have very much enjoyed what I've played of this game. Second, I can't think of more than maybe two modern games with Lovecraftian themes and I want more.

bad art and schizophrenic design

indie as fuck

Think this looks pretty ugly. The blocky style doesn't make much sense here considering there doesn't seem to be any resource gathering.

That's a pretty weird way to think about it. It's just an artistic choice.
