Glad to see Jeff came back to this after the pre-Thanksgiving stream.

It's been fun to play in bursts here and there

I love this game

Posted by UpperDecker

I like playing first person shooters with double barrel shotguns because it makes me feel tough and macho. When i see a first person shooter with wands and magical spells, i just don't feel tough! Go from eatin beef jerky and chewin Red Man to pointy hats and twigs! Nope!

Good to finally see a full QL of this game.

Posted by MxMark

Awesome game! I'm glad there is a QL!

This game is hella dope, glad to see a QL of it.

I managed to reach the final boss once, I think back when this game was still in Early Access, and it kicked my ass. This QL is definitely making me want to give this another go.

Watching this gave me a headache, something more and more first person games do to me as I get older...

I enjoy the heck out of this game. Only beaten it twice out of 10 attempts but most of the weapons are a lot of fun and, from what I can tell, i still have quite a few to unlock.

I COULD not do this with a controller. This is mouse territory.

Finally, 2014's real game of the year gets some recognition!

Edited by smokyexe

Is that FOV 60 or something? I feel its really zoomed in.

I'm with Brad - I don't remember this looking nearly this good the last time I saw it. Maybe I'm confusing it with something else?

Posted by Ascara89

This looks great

Been playing this for several months now. It's pretty cool! Though I wish that the weapons felt a little more chaotic and "magical" instead of essentially being guns that shoot colorful stuff instead of bullets.

Hot tips! There is always one secret room per floor, which has a random perk in it. You can find secret rooms by looking for walls with a large obvious crack and just shoot at it until it breaks.

Also, the game was made in Unity, which makes sense given the studio used to make games using XNA for Xbox 360 indie games section.

@Jeff dunno if you know this, but if there is a wall with cracks on it you can blow through it to a secret room. There are generally one or two per map.

Anybody notice some screen tearing? Is that in the game? Or maybe that was my browser acting weird.

EDIT: Nevermind, this is the PC version. I missed them saying that. I guess they maybe had V-Sync off.

Jesus that motion blur made me feel sick. Couldn't watch it but looks like a dope game.

Is this in any way related to the ios game?

You should! The game is a lot of fun.

This game looks pretty awesome, but that fov combined with the motion blur made this uncomfortable to watch.

Posted by Naoiko

Yay! I was hoping there would be a QL of this.

I don't believe so. Tim Rogers is not involved in this game, he is busy working on Videoball.

Edited by Wacomole

Hmm... a couple of minutes in to the Quick Look and I've had to take a rest as the motion blur is a tad extreme. I'll give it another go later.

Posted by sirdesmond

This QL reminded me to finally pick up this game after seeing Jeff look at it initially. Great art style and the Hexen inspiration is awesome.

Posted by Xanadu

This looks pretty cool, getting a huge heretic vibe!

This looks really cool

So it's like Hands of Fate with better gameplay but without the cool mystery and narrator. Could be pretty cool.

Edited by julesodies

@bisonhero: The IOS game was awesome. Didn't know he was working on something new ;), cant wait.

Posted by Hairball

reminds me a lot of tower of guns, more games like that are always good

One thing to note about this quick look: Jeff is playing with the autoaim on. This makes the game a lot easier. If you're a big FPS player, or even just a fan of older shooters, you might want to take that off.

He's also playing on easy, which I believe means that you can't unlock the extra characters.

Posted by MeAuntieNora

After learning the wall texture that you can break, and which hides significant secrets, it's hilariously frustrating to watch people walk right by them!

Great QL of a cool game though.

Posted by GeekedTV

I have never even heard of this game! But I am so down to try it now :)
Also friends on the "Bomb" if you wanna collab on some ideas for this new gaming reality show......lemme know.
Here is our first vid and youtube channel

That head bob, or lean or whatever, makes me sick. Glad I didn't buy before watching this.

Recently all of their PC footage has been full of screen tearing. I bet someone did something stupid like disabling V-Sync or forcing Adaptive V-Sync at the driver level, which would override anything set in the game.

Ziggurat is a great game! I was surprised how long I kept being motivated to throw myself at it. The number of weapons, characters and perks you eventually unlock is kind of insane. And they seem to still add to it even after its full release on PC. Very cool to see the game got a proper QL! I hope this will be really succesful across all platforms.

Edited by Crippl3

This game is fucking awesome, glad to see it get some more love.

I think you can adjust the FOV, although I could be wrong. I don't remember it being so low from the last time I played. Also, yeah, that auto-aim takes away a big part of the game, although I suppose it makes sense with a controller.

EDIT: I think you can adjust the motion blur too, don't remember that much. Though, I did play this game on near minimum settings, since my computer is trash, so maybe lower graphics change that.

Posted by slickdasani

I had to stop watching, game is great, but their setting were making my head go crazy. Something between the FoV, motion blur, and bobbing.

Same here. Couldnt watch this to the end thanks to the motion blur and low FoV :/

I was also really surprised to see them say the game looks better and then attribute that to the motion blur. To me that's one of those settings that makes games look like shit.

Posted by LordLOC

Oh god, I remember a few months ago me and a few other people in chat were begging the GB crew to try this game out on a stream where they were taking random requests to play things. I still remember Jeff being super impressed by the game and saying he'd play more. Guess he did :)

The game really deserves way more attention than it's gotten so far. Glad to see an Xbone version get released, as I hope it does super well for the developers. I would LOVE to see a sequel to this game at some point. Also glad to hear Brad likes it and has played it in the past few months. I know he and Jeff both said they liked it during that stream, and I believe Patrick did as well.

Never been sick watching or playing any game until this one. Did find this in the steam discussions though, so I think I'll buy it anyway:

Some people may experience motion sickness in the game because of these 3 effects:

* Motion Blur

* View bob

* Zoom while sprinting

All 3 effects can be disabled in the game options.

FOV can be changed in game settings, yes. IIRC, the valid range is 70-100.

Posted by electrotherobot

I started playing this after they showed a bit of it on a livestream, and I've since put about 50 hours into it. Hell of a game.

That being said, holy cow does it ever frustrated me to watch people play pc shooters with a gamepad.

This game is not terribly easy, but it's not hard. Watching jeff fumble around on easy while trying to aim with a gamepad triggers me.

Good on you guys for showing a great game, though. I think it deserves more recognition.

Posted by Dave_Tacitus

@jason222: Yeah, same here. I had to quit the video actually - Never been motion sick through watching a game before. I own this one too and had no problems, but that's maybe because I always turn off motion blur and get a proper FOV when possible.
