Is it just me or is this a 60fps (or 48fps) game? It's freaking me out...

Posted by dr_mantas

@ch3burashka: They started recording some PC Quick Looks (and Daily Dota, I think? I don't watch it) on a PC that they built and configured to do 60 fps recording.

This seem like a game for Ryan/Patrick...... P-Patrick..... *sniff*

The way your hand moves when you jump is kinda odd

Brad's confused "uhhhh"s could not sound any more like Butthead.

This new video quality and framerate is so FUCKING AWESOME!

Edited by Luck702

This looks interesting. Also, a Lovecraft inspired story is a required buy for me.

"Kamaji" from Miyazaki's Spirited Away, anyone else immediately think of this?

Kamaji is a great character in a great movie!

I am bothered by how physics are backwards in this. Opposite things attract!

Posted by BaconGames

Eh, I don't know if I like how there's already a ton of thematic stuff and then on top of all that there's Lovecraft in there too I guess? Seems like the game has too much going on for me to care. That and I think everyone else's voice except the 6 armed guy is kinda grating.

I bet the dude's name as Dax is the opposite of an accident.

Mechanics seem well done though.

Puzzle game QLs always end up a little frustrating to watch :P

I think Brad and Jeff seem to cancel each other out; Jeff is great at backseat puzzle solving.

Now if only he was in the driver's seat...

I'm sorry, but this just looks really boring!

Damn @customotto, you may as well be one of the GB guys: Brad got defensive over a tiny thing you said.

Framerate impressed me more than the gameplay shown.

Sadly, it's not. People still do it.

This game looks GREAT! I like the way it looks and it looks pretty fun. I'm grabbing it when I get some time to play it.

Getting a fundamental property of magnetism wrong though. Holly shit. Wow. How embarrassing. Call it something else if you just want to make up a force where similar polarities attract. Or work it into the fiction? Alternate universe or something.

Magnificent framerate. No idea how H.P. Lovecraft enters the equation.

Edited by darkest4

I would skip this game based solely on the gameplay, don't really want a less polished Portal right now.. but the story thing might suck me in. Possibly Cthulu story sounds too good, I hope they deliver.

Posted by Jon4649

Anyone make the joke that this game was made by the Insane Clown Posse?

Posted by ichthy

If there's anything I love more than Cthulhu, it's space Cthulhu.

I am not complaining about the QL because it is hard to talk and solve puzzles while recording, but it is always upsetting when people keep calling a game broken or clunky when they aren't thinking ahead.

Man, that smooth and high framerate. You can tell it's a PC game even by watching the Quick Look :O

I love that 60fps videos have returned for premium members.

It's weird, watching 60fps videos always looks smoother than actually playing 60fps games to me for some reason too.

It's not premium exclusive. Mine was 60fps and I'm not currently a subscriber.

Would you be banned from competitive eSports if you had 6 arms?

Posted by EveretteScott

The look speed is slow you say? Turn up the sensitivity or stop using a controller for this type of game perhaps. Can I get paid for playing and not understanding basic video game sense too?

Posted by Glottery

Having just watched this and the portion from Unprofessional Wedfriday, I think I need to pick this up when I have some money to spare for sillyness.

Edited by namesonkel

I'm getting a heavy Thaler the fence (The Witcher) vibe from that six armed guy. Don't know if it's the raspy voice or the facial structure.

All PC games are at least 60 fps :)

Give Brad the six arms he wants!

Edited by JetForceGemini

Somehow this mediocre looking Portal knockoff still looks a lot better than Kim Swift's own Quantum Conundrum. That game was just bad.

Edited by Jedted

I keep getting thrown off by the weird, backwards physics to how magnetism actually works. Did the designers think this made more sense from a gameplay perspective?

Edited by fisk0

Although, I do agree that Mirror's Edge is the only game that's done first-person platforming well - it's a huge shame that most first-person characters don't have legs :(

The legs are part of it, but also where they put the "camera" in relation to the character's rotational axis, most games put them at the same place, which makes it look like you're scrolling through a 1990's QuickTime Panorama when you turn, whereas Mirror's Edge, Tribes, ARMA and a few other games place the camera/eyes sligthly in front of the turning axis (kinda like how real eyes aren't exactly in line with the center point of the neck! Revolutionary!), which shifts the perspective slightly when you turn, making it easier to discern depth despite the lack of a stereoscopic view.

Posted by ChrisTaran

@aelric: Can't fault you for that.

Ahh, maybe someday we'll see the return of quests.

Wasn't interested at all until H.P Lovecraft got throw into the mix.

Same heah. But then, you can throw HP Lovecraft into nearly anything and I'll be interested.

I would point out that all Cthulhu Mythos stuff is space Cthulhu Mythos stuff due to it being the creator of the Cosmic Horror genre and almost all of the beings in it are actually space horror thingies, but that'd be pedantic. (One might also note that I'm OK with being a hypocrite in this instance). Also also I do get what you meant: Cosmic Horror set in the future.

That's quite a unique mutation that gives a man perfect dexterity in 4 additional limbs, with the added mental capacity to control them simultaneously. Quite unique, indeed...

Posted by Darthozzan

This game is awesome.

Posted by PXAbstraction

60fps Flash videos still freak my brain out.

Posted by huser

Good job Brad on the strategic thinking! Going in blind on real dumb games is the true joy of the Quick Looks, but trying to get through new puzzles while having to talk to another person probably isn't conducive for anyone.

Edited by Krathoon

It seems we have a new genre now. The 3D puzzle platformer.

It seems like Lovcraft is becoming more popular with the game developers.

The threads are woven deep with Giantbomb. The makers of the Sherlock Holmes games (as discussed by Justin McElroy on the E3 late night Bombcasts - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kFjUYWWYyM - skip to 5:45 for the 2012 version) are Frogware, who made this game too.

He describes the pitch from 'Olga'. I just remembered seeing a Magrunner demo on the Gamespot stage this year and, sure enough, it was Olga giving the demo. http://uk.gamespot.com/e3/magrunner-6410291/

"The mechanics are simple. You attract things or you repel them. There is nothing more to explore."

I know it's not easy explaining things in a second language, but it produces some funny conversations :)

Edited by Fallom

Hey guys, don't get dissuaded from buying the game over stuff like "It just drops you in without explaining anything". Everything covered in the Quick Look is explained in the first few minutes of playing the game, including several prompts that won't let you continue playing the game until you press the Use button.

The physics are pretty tight and consistent, too. The reason Brad kept randomly "jumping" is because that's what happens when you place a block under your feet.
