Awesome, just as I wondered what to do before heading to work!

I bought this when it first came out because it looked pretty and because the demo only lets you use OGGs. Which is tricky of them.

The Polynomial is one of the most beautiful games or things i have ever seen.

Visually impressive. I love artistic, creative and trippy games. They're so gorgeous to look at. 
 
Though I'm not feeling the gameplay mechanics. Maybe I'll get it when its more cheaper.

Looks interesting as an audio visual experience.  Looks boring as a game.

Please stop combining pretty shooters with good music. I need another FreQuency or Amplitude! Preferably, FREQUENCY!

Posted by Besetment

I dunno. I don't see what the music has to do with anything. It's less of a "music shooter" and more of a shooter with a trippy electro soundtrack and no sound effects.

@Goopynose: Amplitude/Frequency were not shooters. Fun games though.

I'd like to see it with a real, recognisable song so I can see how the music actually effects what's going on.

Goddamn this game is beautiful. I want to buy it just so I can look at it, and encourage the developers to keep making flashing colors. But I can't afford it right now.. it's so cheap, but my money is needed elsewhere...
 
If it goes on sale, I WILL buy it. Soon, The Polynomial! Soon!
 
Also, totally called the Jeff Minter discussion before it happened. I wonder what he thinks about this game!
 
[edit] AHA! Or not! There's a demo! And an hour or so of that was more than enough to satisfy me. From what I can tell, the music only affects a single thing; the "animator" thing that you can set. It makes the "arena" behave in different ways visually. Like blink in rhythm with the music, or... move slightly up and down in rhythm with the music... No gameplay from what I could tell, and basically no intensity feedback either. Shame. [/edit]

Love this game so far, but couldn't help notice that Jeff didn't touch upon a few key points if you want to get the most of the 'game' part of this product. 
 
Gameplay tips: 
 

  • Always be rushing into the blue ghosts - doing so increases your speed and the only way to survive insane mode is to be fast enough so the red robots can't hit you. Your speed will decrease over time though so you need to stay stocked up on blue ghost juice.
  • Also, the slow moving red ghosts with light shooting out of them are currently eating (!) a blue ghost, if you kill it in time, you can save the ghost and you'll be guaranteed a power-up.  
  • The large static circular nebulas are hiding zones - if you get surrounded, wait it out in there until the red's move on and you can find some blue ghosts to get your speed on.
  • The giant red sun is essentially a reflective barrier ala geometry wars - shots bounce off and do more damage to anything they hit but are super inaccurate.

Not really a fan of how they tried to turn it into a space shooter, but jesus christ, this game is beautiful to watch. I am a huge nerd for pretty, shiny lights.
 
Now I just wait for the ability to make the walls of my room turn into this...

I am so disappointed. I was excepting a DOOM mod that replaced the visuals & monsters with crazy visualizers. :(

Is one of them proper stereo 3D? Because if so, I CANNOT wait to run home and play this on my TV.
