Good on Patrick for these solo quick looks. Keep then coming

Edited by Humanity

@patrickklepek I think the game has 2 E's at the end? You might want to update the title!

Posted by Brodehouse

Holy shit this game would be bonkers on the Rift.

Posted by Duluoz

Looks pretty cool. Kinda reminds me of the book House of Leaves.

Having been making windows and menus lately, the impulse to fix the spacing in that title selection menu is overwhelming! >,<

This game looks pretty snazzy.

You should check out the video that inspired this game, http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xypgr_building-a-de-clerq-j-cool_creation

I'm sure you checked this out but "Naissance" means birth in French and if my High School level french is correct adding an extra "e" at the end makes it feminine which might tie into the female sounding protagonist you seem to inhabit but I might be completely off on the grammar.

Like people say, this becomes like Tsutomu Nihei's Blame! manga. He's an arcitect become artist and writer, Blame! could go several issues without dialogue and was still a thrilling piece of seinen scifi, just no way to create a game out of it.

Unless maybe, his Knights of Sidonia got picked up. This is cool.

@duluoz: Love that book. There was an unsettling horror that book evoked that no other has ever come close to.

Posted by Lausebub

This looks really great, but as a student, it's really hard to justify paying 18€ for a game that is not that replay-able and only lasts for a few hours., while having so many games in your backlog. I'll put in on the list, though. Thanks, Patrick.

This game's worth checking out. There's some rough action/platforming, but mostly it's awesome visuals and atmosphere.

Posted by PicklesOnParade

Really glad you showed this game off Patrick. This game really spoke to me and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since finishing it the other day. I hope you stick with it. The weird and creepy atmosphere persists throughout, and some of the sequences toward the end get real trippy.

How long did it take you? I'm, I dunno, almost three hours in? I made it through the sequence where the blocks rearrange themselves and you arrive at a platform across a big gap.

"Similar to gone home" *CLICK* I stopped watching.

I absolutely loved this game. It took me about five hours to finish, and according to some reading I have done, I found all but one easteregg. The stated influence of the manga Blame! is absolutely overwhelming if you know it, and even if not, the visuals are just outstanding. The platforming however, even if I found the controls to be quite responsive, is at times frustrating.

EDIT: Thanks for playing this and giving it more exposure. Sadly the "not a game" crowd is already hard at work.

Not sure that I'd actually enjoy playing this, but man the atmosphere looks incredible.

Edited by CaLe

In case anyone was wondering, the word 'naissance' is Latin and means something along the lines of: To bind with twine and beat with wooden sticks. It was often used by landowners when their serfs would mount livestock for fun, or just misbehave in general. "A naissance upon you!", the landowners would shout just before having the misbehaving serf tied with twine and beat with wooden sticks.

It's also directly related to a word I'm sure you're all familiar with--yes you guessed it--nuisance! So the next time you are a being a nuisance you should spare a thought those who weren't so lucky to escape the dreaded twine and wooden sticks.

@patrickklepek: If I remember correctly, that's still in the "Going Down" chapter; I think you're half-ish way, give or take an hour.

Posted by PimblyCharles

Did anyone else get a Star Wars vibe from some of the falling sections in this?

Edited by Sydlanel

I finished this game the day it came out... it's definitely very intriguing. I was actually thinking about sending it your way @patrickklepek, but I forgot... good thing you showed it :D

I also found the first person platforming coupled with some pretty unforgiving checkpoints to be quite frustrating, and I hoped there would be at least some more narrative, which is really rather barren.

All said, the game is definitely worth exploring, as mentioned the architectural design is truly breathtaking.

Posted by Abendlaender

Nothing of this appeals to my whatsoever. And that's fine.

This games looks fantastic! I'm glad it's not something that slipped by me. They should really play this on the unprofessional Friday so more people can see it. (I'm in no way tied to this game) :D

@cale: It is also french for "birth". Combined with the following capital E it might mean electronic birth or birth into an electronic, technical world. But i might overreach with that.

Edited by juhoz

Oh wow, thats pretty awesome. Bought.

Posted by NiklasP

Very cool, thanks for showing this to us Patrick. Also the Banner Saga QL.

West coast dropping the ball on this shit!

Posted by seannao

This game looks extremely interesting from its setting, but a lot of its trailer seemed to suggest it was mostly a first person puzzler, which turned me off to buying it.

The setting reminded me of the world of some manga called BLAME! .. which imo is a visually exciting manga, but very nonsensical, hard to follow, and .. really kinda bad.

Posted by JackSukeru

Yeah it definetly has a striking look, though I'm pretty rarely into puzzle games and I didn't find the mechanics seen in the quicklook very compellng. I'll still put it on my wish list for now, in case I ever get in the mood for it.

Oh man, totally! Great reference.

That breathing has me consciously thinking about my breathing. Don't think I can mess with this!

This looks pretty interesting!

Edited by EuanDewar

Looks cool although the music was a little weird. I liked it, it reminded to me of the Vangelis soundtrack for Blade Runner actually, but it seemed a lil out of place. Though with how this game seems to operate I imagine thats deliberate.

Posted by FelixCulpa

@fistfulofmetal: Ha I watched just under 3 and then immediately bought it. Played an hour and then came back the this video. I'm quite enjoying it so far. Love the music and sound design and the general aesthetic.

This looks like those Desmond puzzles from AC:R.

These environments are just absolutely enthralling. I sat there watching the entire video, jaw just hanging open. WOW.

Posted by KyussRyn

Those falls were giving me butterflies. Really impressive, thanks for introducing me to this game.

Posted by csl316

Looks pretty neat, good stuff.

Edited by darkest4

Somehow environments like this are always far more unsettling than the typical dark, grungy and bloody horror/sci fi environments. See no reason to buy the game though, I really need a story payoff and more than just exploring and feel like I've already experienced what it has to offer after watching a few minutes. Wish it were a scifi horror movie instead.

Yeah, that was my first thought. Glad you bit the bullet and mentioned triple-A here before I could. :P

Thanks so much for showing this Patrick! This game looks fun, and the art is incredible!

Posted by Terjay

Looks neat. I won't be paying 14 euros for this though.

At the city part: it's sorta like we've stepped into Metropolis [1927]

You generally can't change the gender of a noun, unless it designs something animate that can be either male or female (like the words for teacher, friend or cat for instance), and naissance is already a feminine noun so that would be redundant anyway.
