I was interested when I saw the teaser back in march, but this one is even more interesting. I'll surely pick this up when it comes out.

Looks fantastic. Those first two quotes are some real eye-rolly stuff though.

Great title too.

And all of a sudden, this game is on my radar. Incredibly good selection of music for that trailer, really hope the actual game will sport some period-appropriate tunes on the occasions when it isn't being too depressing. I'm half-polish, so I'm obligated to say as much, though.

Here's the trailer for ease of access.

@theht: Personally, my pet peeve with that trailer was the Polygon quote; "Actually feels like being in a war" I have difficulty putting into words just how much that one annoys me. Call me cynical, but somehow I doubt this gaming journalist is an authority on the desolation and terror of having a war ravage your home, family and morals. And I know, I know, petty stuff to complain about, but it just rubs me the wrong way.

You're not wrong; that quote reeks of bad taste & ignorance (though to be fair, I haven't seen it in context so maybe it's better in the actual source, but I sorta doubt it). I don't have direct experience with war (thankfully) but I have friends who do, and it's certainly something that I can't really understand not having been through anything like it.

I had the exact same reaction. This quote really rubbed me the wrong way. Just plain stupid and ignorant. I have no idea what war is like and I pray that I will never know, but it's probably not like sitting in front of a PC in a warm comfy room and playing a videogame

It's not petty at all, that's a really dumb quote.

Yup, I agree entirely. Such an utterly ridiculous thing to say, about any video game.

Great trailer, though, and I particularly like the art style.

So it looks exactly like Deadlight which I personally found to be a really great game - so hopefully it's a cool game. I guess it's another Polish developer since it's a Polish song playing throughout that trailer.

I don't think he means "this is how a war feels like in real life". I think what he means to say is "this games makes me feel like I'm part of a believable war".

That Polygon quote is probably the worst review quote I have ever read. Whoever wrote that is a goddamn idiot.

@castiel: Here's the article from which that Polygon quote was pulled, in case anyone is interested in getting the context for that quote. I'd say it's a pretty shit title, but the content of the article gives it enough context that you understand what the writer is trying to convey.

I don't know, I read the article and did not really find justification for that stupid title. From what I can gather, the author thinks the game feels like a real war because it has a really dark story, bad things can happen, kids can die etc..?

I'm all for taking the glory out of war as it is portrayed in a lot of mediums but this game looks really depressing.
