Well... for something that's this much up my alley, it sure came out of nowhere.

Kopps and Zozo are two great movies from this director.

The game for me seems interesting but then again it could be my biased towards Scandinavian developers. That makes me excited for the game, Dagbiker had a point that it would be a cluster-fudge to control but after 2 or 3 levels of Ni no Kuni last year or longer, not sure to be honest. I got used to the controls.

It took me 5 trys to get through that level in Ni no Kuni, It will probably take forever to get through this game.

Lel, so true.

Kind of unexpected to see this type of game from Starbreeze but it looks like a cool idea (if maybe a little one note) and a really nice artsyle to boot.

At some point in this video I thought this guy was going to try and sell me a VCR out of the trunk of his car.

I like this guy. He's kind of like a sexy Balki.

Kinda reminds me of that Donkey Kong game where each arm was a DS trigger and you had to climb up using them.

@assinass: Yeah I think he's right. Well in regards to replayability it certainly benefits certain types of games a lot more than it does others, but for experience focused game I don't mind if there is little of it.

Something I think has gotten a lot better as games have gotten shorter is the density of them. Not for all games of course but Metal Gear Rising is a great recent example. It may only be a few hours, but that game also has basically no filler in terms of gameplay. Meanwhile past gen games like Wind Waker infamously set you on a time and rupee consuming fetchquest for the Triforce, and Metroid Prime had you backtracking for keys before the final boss.

Games should be long or short depending on what they offer, what they set out to do. Whether that is hours of grinding and dungeoncrawling, competitive gameplay that's infinitely replayable, or focused, one time experiences. There's room for all of that, I think.

I don't think quality when I see 505 Games, but at least Starbreeze has some pedigree.

@assinass: I agree with that sentiment wholeheartedly. While I'm not advocating 4 hour games, I do think a lot of modern games tend to outstay their welcome with filler material or one shooting gallery too many.

That looked really awesome. I loved the way he shows the old woman the map, and then she just points, instead of alot of meaningless text. Count me in!

Josef Fares huh? Unless I'm misremembering, or somehow confusing him with his brother Fares Fares, I recall him ticking me off a few years ago talking about that he wanted games to be shorter and that he thought the ideal length of a game was around three hours. Back then 20 hours were closer to the norm so I naturally thought he was completely crazy.

It's funny how things have changed. I've grown older and I find myself a lot more understanding of his mindset these days.

I'm not super sold on the idea or the style this game has, but I'll try to remain catiously optimistic for now.

I don't know about that, but Josef did say this in a CVG interview:

"We could have easily made this a ten hour game by recycling gameplay, but we haven't. We want to keep the player curious all the time. When you play Brothers, you'll have no idea what's coming next, and I guarantee you'll never guess what's going to happen at the end."

"Replayability is overrated. Even with a great game like Half-Life 2, most will only play through it once. For me, everything is about the experience. It's not about the length, and Brothers is as long as it's supposed to be. No one ever questions a film about whether it's an hour or two hours long. You ask whether it's good or bad. Many games these days outstay their welcome."

Am I the only one who has heard of Cookie & Cream? To me it sounds a lot like that.

What he said. This is an ooooold idea. Nothing wrong with it. It's nice to see someone with Starbreeze's pedigree taking a crack at it. Looks like they're using it in some really interesting ways here.

Shame they couldn't be bothered to show how it will work on PC. Is this local co-op only as well or will it have online? Would like to give it a go with a friend online.

You guys have never heard of this concept before? Space Neon Lobsters! Is it really co-op if you're playing by yourself?

Play it co-op by having you hold one half of the controller and someone else holds the other half.
