Interesting to hear what a guy coming from the movie industry has to say about the workhours in the game industry.

Looks great, plus Metroid style gameplay. Very exciting.
 
Also cool to see a guy from Hollywood recognize all the work that goes into making a game.

Nice graphics, but other than that it doesn't seem especially good.

It's weird that game development is still almost completely non-union.

This game looks awesome. I'm hoping this and FEZ end up in the summer of arcade.

indeed. Because the game industry is still so young, there are no unions and won't be for a long time. And the people are burning out like crazy! 
 
Whoever of the younglings thinks, he/she wants to do this job, needs to know, that being 'enthusiastic' as a requirement to work at a company, is secret lingo/a euphemism in the industry for 16hr days, 7 days a week.

I'm excited for this. Metroid-like in upgrades and exploration, a great art style, and music by Dimmu Borgir. Listen closely to the first bit of animation and you'll hear the orchestral portion of Progenies of the Great Apocalyspe.

Absolutely beautiful, although it is strikingly similar to Patapon's art style.

I definitely agree, it was an interesting perspective to get. Sometimes I feel like gamers can be too harsh, and not realize the effort that developers are putting into these products.

Game looks fucking awesome as well, I absolutely love the art style.

Such an original art style. This makes me happy to see how games can evolve when people from other disciplines change the paradigm and what we expect.

The art style looks great.  Listening to these two talk about 100 hour weeks makes me thankful for my (usually) 40 hour a week job.
