I'm tired of the tower defense thing, but the rest of the game looks pretty fun!

Also, the hand of God cracked me up.

I think the Odama parallels here are being sorely neglected.

Ryan falls off the world and is defeated quite a bit in this quick look. I guess it's time to start a forum thread about how he shouldn't be allowed to play on video anymore, or do assholes just do that for Brad?

This is about the strangest, original thing I've seen in video games in a long time. I will probably buy this for that alone.

EDIT: They better do at least one TNT based on this.

Everything about this game seems great. Plus, it is actually priced fairly for Europeans on Steam! This game earns my support for multiple reasons.

Played a bit of this game today, it's quite fun! I really like all the different art styles, and the boulder controls really well, surprisingly; it has just the right amount of heft.

My only complaint so far is that your defenses don't do nearly as much damage as I think they should, sometimes it feels like it just comes down to whoever finishes 3 runs down the mountain first, and that you want to mainly cause the other player to waste time by knocking them off rather than trying to damage them with catapults and such.

It's also one of those rare 800 MSP ($10) games, as opposed to $15. It's the same price on the PC when it releases next week, I believe.

The face on the ball of rock is very similar to something I had nightmares of when I was very small, so this game just simply creeps the daylights out of me. Just watching this quick look freaked me out.

This was a lot more Monty Python then I was expecting, that is a good thing.

I really want this game, but I just got this gut feeling the PC version is going to control like complete shit. Anyway, here's hoping for a TNT of this game.

Games may or may not be art, but they sure as hell can be AWESOME with art. This game is a million times better because of the art and music though it looks fun anyway.

Oh wow I thought this game was more of a straight up Katamari style "smash everything" game. To see that it has possible depth intrigues me a lot more.

I had no idea what to expect from this game and I still kind of feel the same way. That said, I may have to buy this tonight.
