I played it at the PAX indie booths and had a great time with it. The co-op is fun, it plays well, really smooth animations and looks great. You are going to want to watch out for it when it comes to the Xbox and what ever else it ends up coming out on. I talked to one of the designers and he says platforms are not set yet, of course, but he wants it to go on as many things as he can.

@AngeTheDude: It is pretty funny too. You can turn into a chicken whenever you want.

Yup!

I heard the title and decided nothing bad could possibly come out with a title so fucking great. Those of you who saw it at PAX, did they have any release date or even an idea of one?

Haven't seen it myself as I am not attending the show, but everything I'm hearing about this game has me quite excited. Can't wait for screenshots and videos to come through so that I can get a a more thorough sense of it -- just sounds like a delight from everything's that's already been said.

@MariachiMacabre: They have no idea. I think they are still in development from what the guy said.

Also the main characters are Juan and Tostada. Yes Tostada.

@Daveyo520: Good find man, that's a great showcase there. Already digging the vibe I'm getting off of this. Perhaps not alot of content and material have been sent out to outlets for potential coverage, being that it is only now getting some exposure at the show. Any idea for how long this game has been in development? It looks like a game that'd easily be fit for a Summer of Arcade line-up, come this summer.

@efman: I have no clue sorry. Though ya it does seem like a summer of arcade game for sure. Though I think it might not be till at least the next one.

The first time you turn into a chicken....magical. Johnathan Holmes was doing an interview with the devs while me and my friend were playing, and when we figured out how to turn into chickens, we started screaming "CHICKEN!!!!" I think we ruined their interview...

@MariachiMacabre: If I remember correctly, they don't even have a platform yet, let alone a release date. It'll be a while.

@Mesoian That was one of the funniest things I have done in a game. It is so stupid and awesome.

I played this at PAX with a friend and it was great. The world swap mechanic is really cool, and we had some funny moments where we couldn't even do a simple jump because we both tried to hit the button at the same time.

I knew this game was going to be great from when I played it at PAX two years ago. Today, I suplexed a chicken in the full version.

You know what, Guacamelee? You're more than all right. You're pretty god damn great.

@morbid_coffee: As did I. Though it was only last PAX East I got to play it. I also played the exact same part they played in the QL this PAX. I really wish it was on other platforms so I could play it. Oh well.

Is it Muy Bueno?

If I recall you made the interview way better.

@daveyo520: I believe from their Twitter they said to not put your hopes up for anything. But the only thing that was for sure out of the question was iOS.

I wouldn't think so but it is possible. The first Tales from Space was a Pub Fund game and it stayed exclusive. The second one was not and thus it came to Steam. Guacamelee! was funded with Sony dollars but their post on the PS blog simply said it would launch exclusively on Sony consoles. So yes, there is a tiny chance.

That's always a tricky question to answer, but, what I would say in general for any game that is made : if the game initially sells like gangbusters, then it'll come to every device, including microwaves and coffee makers.

Great game, the boss battles remind me of the first Shank game where you had to time everything right with your offensive moves and dodge rolls or your pretty much dead. Just beat it, and game felt satisfying. Seems like there might be multiple endings to this one so I'll give it another go.

Naaaah... I hardly notice any of that junk while playing. The game has it's own style/humor that is much better than any of that stuff. So if anyone is, indeed, worried that the game is just dumb referencing to internet stuff; it's not (not saying you are... just anyone in general).

Lovin the game. Combat is pretty easy (kind of reminds me of 2d God of War with the combo/juggling stuff) but the platforming is fun and challenging.

I think I might actually buy it if it's like that.

I'm enjoying it so far. Some of the platforming can get a little frustrating later in the game but nothing to deter purchasing it.
