Super Limbo aesthetic.

I always loved War of the Worlds. I hope this game lives up to its legacy.

The graphics looks weird.

Can't think of War of The Worlds without singing the Jeff Wayne musical thing.

Posted by lockwoodx

War of the Worlds would have made a great Incredible Crisis crossover.

Patrick Stewart. Enough Said

Posted by Clubvodka

I'm thoroughly offended it's not Sir Patrick in the credits

:o I will wait patiently for this to eventually come to PC; I love all the games they're namedropping...

Really, really dig the rotoscope style. Seems to have some great sound too. I'll download this one for sure.

Oh god now it's back in my head...I love that album.

Looks cool... although the dude saying that they tried to avoid being Limbo-style too much seems a little weird considering how much this level seems like Limbo... I mean.. a LOT like Limbo.

I've only seen the first 5 minutes. But I really hope "Eve of War" is part of the soundtrack.

reminds me of oddworld. which is a goodthing

Posted by Ventilaator

This looks cool. Unlike Limbo, this aesthetic and gameplay seems to actually mesh well, so sign me up.

Posted by mewstu

also the studio who brought you http://www.giantbomb.com/quick-look-story-hour-adventures/17-1682/

This game looks super fucking cool.

I liked the part where they ran through the Gears of War 2 main menu screen.

Posted by ADAMWD

Yeah, I'm not feeling the lower quality Limbo style backgrounds combined with a real strange looking 3D player modeling.

Music by Chris Hülsbeck?

Holy shit. That man is a legend. Excitement for this upped by 100%. Also looks cool, I like this kind of game.

Posted by MidnightVice

This looks really cool, will definitely check it out when it's released.

He mentioned Abe's Oddysee. I am buying this game.

A 3DS version sure would be bananas.

Mike was great, probably the funniest EX after Trenched. The only game similar to this I've played is Heart of Darkness.

Posted by vonFlampanker

I like that they kept the creepy foghorn sound from the 2005 WotW.

"On disc" DLC confirmed

Posted by sawtooth

what's with the mass death but no gore? not sure why, but it bothers me.

Posted by ThePhantomnaut

Wait this is the developer behind the horrid MK Kollection?

Red Weed/Vines ..... Keyson is a martian.

Posted by ManiacMaysin

This one looks like a must play.

this doesn't have multiplayer!

Posted by Krisgebis

I don't like the animation. His shoes doesn't seem to hit the ground as he runs in place, also they dont have any animation for him grabbing onto a ledge, his just hangs there all of a sudden :-/

Posted by Gatehouse

@mewstu: Also, three games about puffins. Three!

Posted by sixpin

The game looks pretty good. Not as polished as something from a larger studio, but this is a small team with what sounds like a quick turnaround. Overall, pretty impressive looking XBLA title. I'll buy it just to have Patrick Stewart read a script to me while I play.

Posted by ghostNPC

Looks fantastic.

Posted by Elow

Stupid question, but what does EX in "Quick Look EX" mean?

Posted by allworkandlowpay

@Elow: External.

Posted by NTM

Oh man, that looked interesting when I first saw some footage before, but this just looks fantastic. It's one of those "artistic" games, like Limbo, Braid, Outland, and so on, but different and exciting on its own terms. I'm excited to see how this does, and I may just be playing it once it comes out. It's also a plus that I love War of the Worlds.

Posted by vhold

This game looks like it has frustrating control problems.

Posted by Alex_Carrillo

He mentioned Out of this World, and the moment he did I completely lost interest. Hate that game. Haate it.

Posted by ToxicFruit

does this remind any one of Heart of Darkness ?

The War of the Worlds musical by Jeff Wayne is the greatest musical ever composed. I love it, and despite the extreme flaws, I loved the 1998 War of the Worlds RTS using remixed versions of songs from that musical as it's soundtrack.

Posted by Chemin

Wow, this looks fucking awesome. I need this shit.

Posted by lordofultima

So this is Bastion with Patrick Stewart? SOLD

Posted by prestonhedges

I don't think anyone would intuitively know at the beginning to push that crate to put out that fire.

Posted by Vortextk

Not fucking joking when he's talking about the difficulty. Everything looks great but if I wasn't one of the like 6 guys who worked on the game I don't know if I would have the slightest clue what to do until dieing 3 times, every like 10 feet, as I'm watching this video.

Posted by shinluis

Looks hard.
