Dat title screen.

I guessed this would go for 14 mins - I was pretty close :P

Also, this looks pretty alright.

Posted by Noxville

Don't look like fractals to me.

Posted by gbrading

Got to say, this looks excellent. For a little game, it has a great sense of style.

Posted by byterunner

So I guess Brad and Jeff just kinda sat down and played like...3 games and made the QLs...

I don't get this game at all. Too slick and doesn't look terribly fun.

Posted by Jonnyflash80

Cool game. I love the art style and the animations are super slick. I will probably pick this up.

Digging the soundtrack. Cool how pushing and making blooms adds to the melody too.

Posted by KillyDarko

This looks really neat. I might try this sometime :)

Saw it in the App Store and came really close to buying it, might do it now.. (Although through Steam.)

@onan: How can something be too slick?

Posted by DG991

Cool, I know the developers in real life :D It's cool seeing the final product on GB's site.

Two things I learned. Fractal looks pretty cool and Gary Whitta was playing Modern Warfare 3 during the Quick Look.

Posted by Dopee

Looks pretty cool. Not something I'd buy though I think

Posted by Ronald

I admit, I also made the "YOU DEFEATED" joke when Jeff beat one of the levels. Really, every game should use that.

I like how Brad keeps insisting it would work with a controller and should be on XBLA. Stay classy, Giant Bomb.

Also I didn't see any fractals.

It looks ok but the fact that the game uses a mouse indicator tells me that this is only a more complex browser/flash game.

And when he does xbla/psn qls he says the same about a pc version. Brad wants everyone to play everything.

...So?

You say that like it's a bad thing.

@gladspooky: Explain how this game wouldn't work with a controller, and what's low-class about wanting good games to be available on more platforms. Or do you just have a daily quota of bitching about Internet content that you need to fill?

He probably wants to lay down on his couch barely awake while playing a relaxing game, you can't blame him for it. Also to me this looks like a good iPad game.

Absolutely fantastic game, especially with the recent updates they've made for it. Glad to see it get a quick look.

Posted by AlfredoSloth

@Brad: Oh snap! (one of the few times I've ever said that.)

I completely agree with you Brad. Haters gonna hate, though.

Posted by UberExplodey

I've met the Creative Director of the team who developed this, he's a super chill guy.

It's too slick for what it is, which is a glorified flash game. It's just pretentious.

How is that un-classy? Are you a fucking idiot?

How is port begging NOT classy?

I saw this on Steam and was intrigued, I'm glad to see a quick look of it! Thanks!

Totally getting vibes of PopCap games from this one

Posted by Kordesh

I'm not going to lie, any time I see facebook/twitter share crap being pushed at me in a game, especially via the GUI, I immediately start getting put off.

Posted by ChaosTony

@Brad: Fuck yeah Brad. Money says that guy never replies.

Posted by Mercanis

I see that Cipher Prime continues to make interesting puzzle games.

Edited by beard_of_zeus
This seems really neat, didn't realize it was the same team who did Auditorium, which I liked. I agree with Brad that it's impressive how slick everything is; it has a very pleasant, clean look, both the animations and UI.
 
Also, comment people, what is wrong with games being on more platforms or having a game with simple, yet elegant mechanics? (Some of) You guys are crazy.
 
@Brad: You tell 'em, Brad, I totally agree. More games for more people!

To play devil's advocate, those timed modes would need to be slowed down for controllers. Aside from that, he's a dick.

"I don't like puzzle games" seems like a better way to say whatever the fuck happened here. :P

I love puzzle games. This one just doesn't seem very fun and relies too much on luck with the spawning block combos. You can't polish a turd, but that sure doesn't keep some developers from breaking out the turtle wax.

Posted by Max_Hydrogen

Why did thay call this game Fractal when they should have called Tessellation?

Posted by Onisama

I'm honestly shocked that Jeff did not react to the "CHOP CHOP" message after he failed a level.

Actually, you can polish poo. They did it on Mythbusters! =P
Anyway, I didn't mean to ruin your point, which is still valid and I like what you said there, which was pretty funny. =)

Weird, other than namedropping Mandelbrot I don't think there was a single fractal related thing in the entire video. Does fractal stuff appear later in the game or is the title just not very accurate?

Posted by artofwar420

I gonna put this in my Steam wishlist.
