I think this game is a bit too up it's own arse with the whole 'games are art!' thing. It's far too abstract for it's own good. That's my opinion anyway.

I've heard it's so arty there is nobody to play it with because nobody has bought it

I blame the french. They stole all the accents.

I really, really hope this is just an elaborate joke because that name is just too much.

edit: okay, they're Belgian. Never mind. Still think everything about this game is horrendously pretentious.

Is this a Tale of Tales game?

*checks*

Yep.

According to the developer page they're Belgium, hence the name. They're also the same chaps that made The Path apparently. Whatever the case that was kind of interesting so maybe this will be, who knows? Don't see the point in getting annoyed by it though.

I started watching the trailer and stopped about 15 seconds in. Just not doing anything for me.

oh god the path.

I bought the horror themed indie pack on steam a while back. Mostly for the Void but that came with it too and the path is so fucking dumb

I can handle the myriad of indie arthouse platformers that get released but there is a line I'll set for indie arthouse QTE/games of this ilk. That line is polish. The game looks unpolished as shit.

@thabigred: it's like they didn't bother to texture half the game and passed it as 'art'

To be fair I bet a lot more work went into making it get to the current state that either of us are giving credit. Even with the knowledge of that I have a threshold, and it's not meeting those standards.

True enough. Still, for what it is, they ask for far too much money.

I think games like Doom are art... I can paint the world in awesome and bullet holes. No better art than that.

Hey, it's a fine enough program if you approach not as a game (though you in all likelihood already know that, it bears repeating). After a long day at work or class, I'll load it up for probably 30 minutes or so, soak in the atmosphere, the sights, and the sounds, and the words. After that''s done, I'll play something else. There is no challenge, but it's a good meditative tool, and this comes from someone who enjoys a good man-shoots, role-playing, or strategy game as much as the other guy. 


In all honesty, I think it's a great "Dave" game: It's foreign, it's out there, and it can only find some modicum of acceptance from the PC gamer community

@Lamashtu It's not medieval or Russian enough for Dave.

Wahhhh, heaven forbid someone try to make what their vision of an interesting game is.

It doesn't have to appeal to you, nor do you need to make fun of/insult/dismiss the developers for it.

David Cage would agree. It's very avant garde.

I loved The Path, but I'm not sure about this. Lots of French new wave, but then I've tried nearly every artsy game.

The idea of interactive poetry is not something crazy, there is Today I Die, a flash game that you should try out.

I'll play this eventually because this is too weird not to try, but I need to get through The Longest Journey and Dreamfall first.

I "played" Fatale and it was surprisingly good. I hope the duders QL it at some point.
