This is my new favorite Quick Look.

I have the Chrome extension that replaces any text that mention the word "cloud" into "butt"... so an article mentioning iCloud would instead say iButt. Super fun.

Any way, I got super confused watching this QL because I had to continually remind myself that the extension can't replace spoken words in videos (obviously)... so I was wierded out every time Dan said "shoot the butts!"... like a constant stream of brain farts with me going "oh this extension is really advanced!" all the time.

Just watched Jeff playing this on the Thanksgiving stream. Matt Rory mentioned there was a QL of this and I knew I had to check it out.

As of now (Nov 29) this game is half off ($2.99 on Steam), and the OST is another $2.99 if you want it. I don't even play games on PC much, but I'm DLing this right now... Gonna jam the hell out of that soundtrack in my car.

Why does the music sound like a midi version of The Cure?

The art style and the music were the only things that drew me in for the first half of this QL, but seeing how the challenge ramps up soon made me way more interested in the game. Definitely checking it out.

Thanks for this, DanDrew (that's totally gonna be a thing)

So basically this;

Dan and Drew QL's should probably just have the subtitle "Butts and Idiots" from now on.

Best part of this is Drew slyly making fun of Dans overuse of the word idiot.

@mysterysheep: Awesome :D I had no idea he composed music. I saw him live when he opened for Anamanaguchi. It was an interesting performance and Jeff's personal Hell as he had a lot of Yoshi samples.

@danryckert novice Japanese reader- one of the text bits that came out of the enemy means "Defeated" I'm pretty sure. When you shoot the enemy bullets I think it says "Parried". When you shoot the "good" guys and it resets you, it says "Ally"

The music sounds like Bo En (at least a bit in the 2nd world).

That takes some mad skillz.

Playing this right now, up to 2-4 which is fucking hard, what level is the one in the GIF?

Made a video for 2-3 to show how tough it can be (choppy cause recorded off a laptop):

BTW Totally in love with this game, nothing out there quite like this mix of speedrun FPS platformer with cute aesthetic and awesome soundtrack by Calum Bowen (Cloudface).

100% accuracy and three stars or nothing. That gif is literally shit tier.

No way! Make a video, mang, need to learn from the best. Wish this had the downloadable ghosts like from Mirror's Edge.

I actually made a video of 4-5 for my post in the forums about this game: http://www.giantbomb.com/lovely-planet/3030-47153/forums/this-game-is-great-fans-of-old-school-shooters-wil-1491185/#1

I saw the trailer for Lovely Planet and didn't really know what it is, but this quicklook has convinced me. The deceptive charm of the visuals and audio is great.

Dan and Drew have ascended to my favorite Quick Look pair.

This game looks and sounds amazing. My only issue is that the gun isn't centered Doom/Quake style, would probably make it a lot easier to hit things.

It's not so much gun placement as it is no on screen reticle. Makes things just a bit more tricky. I got used to it pretty quickly though. The big square bullets help a lot and you really do need to be leading your shots on anything that isn't directly in front of you anyway. :)

@mdnthrvst: He continually confounds and interests me. I figured Drew would have know that movie in a second.

But yeah, +1 for Dan on this for knowing a movie that didn't involve a wrestler. Fascinating guy.

Yeah, even though Dan hasn't experienced certain things, he seems very open to trying new concepts and ideas. I'd rather someone be naive and openminded than worldly and cynical. (I don't think Dan is naive, I'm just making a general statement.) Also, one can be worldy and not cynical as well.

I think Drew is the posterboy for worldly and non-cynical.

I'm liking this game a lot. I'm almost to the second world. I'm going for 100% accuracy on every level. My times are always double the world record. Those WR holders are insane (or I'm simply not that good at video games).

You gotta poke around the level and try finding slightly different paths. Usually there's something you can jump over to shave seconds off your time. Don't stop for nothin. In more than a few cases, I know the way to get close to the world record, I'm just not good enough to actually follow through on it.

-----

I'm slowly making my way through the game now, 3-starring everything. It's super fun! Don't just complete a level and move on--you gotta get the 3-stars, folks! YOU GOTTA GET THE STARS!

Dan I like how you can be so positive about any game. It opens up people's minds. Things that aren't perfect can still be enjoyable.
