Been playing a bit of this myself and despite it's simplicity and the quite numbing repetition there is something very satisfying about pushing the thingamajig around. The way the controller (and triggers) rumbles when you reel it in is quite soothing.

Probably the first game I've played with a Canadian art grant in the logo screens.

Haven't actually gotten to play much of it but something about it does seem charming.

I always said SEPulchre too. Never heard it the way the game says it.

Edit: @andrew2696 Didn't FEZ get an art grant from the Canadian government?

Sweet. Canada!! :)

Also nice to see the East coast bombers giving a crap about the free Xbox One games. Not a whole lot of love or even knowledge from the west coast.

I played the game with my brother. Got through quite a bit of it but just couldn't bring ourselves to really enjoy it. Admire the look and what it's doing though. Would have bought it if I wasn't free. Just to support Canadian developers :)

Worth noting that it's on GwG this month on XB1, so if you've got Gold there's literally no excuse not to play it.

Haven't heard of this one before, looks really enjoyable. And I love the animations of the characters. Too adorable.

@marty20k Probably brought over to England by the Normans. Never heard of that other wordthingsomething.

Hi it's Martin the producer of Chariot here.

Thanks for such a great Quick Look guys. It was a pleasure watching you play our game like it was meant to be played.

We'll be happy to answer questions if there are some.

In the meantime tell all your friends to get Chariot and play with friends/family.

Cheers

For what it's worth, this quick look sold the game to me, as it's perfect for me and my fiancee to play together. Well done, and congrats.

@havochq: Congrats on the game duder. How's the game experience playing solo? Haven't watched the QL yet so maybe V&A address this. It's free, so I should prob just DL it regardless.

"They have taken on a monumental depressing task and seem pretty happy about it"

That's because the king is a jerk and they murdered him without his knowledge, now this whole task is to find the best hiding spot to put the body so they can be free and rich.

edit: Oh hey! This was made with help from the Canadian Media Fund. Glad to see that went to make something good for once.

This game looks super rad, don't have an Xbox I'll definitely check it out on another platform.

@havochq Congrats man! Both on being involved in making such a charming, fun game and on seeing your work featured in a GBeast quicklook. I can only imagine how cool that feels.
