There's always that possibility, but also don't discount the value of having a review embargo function as marketing for small indie (especially digital only) games. Reviews will be promoting the game (hopefully in a positive light) alongside the game being available for purchase, if done say a week earlier a potential buyer might forget to come back in a weeks time to make the purchase.

Something that bugs the hell out of me is that the bosses seem to lack any kind of internal thematic coherence. Just look at the gifs in the OT -- the center of the flower just extends arbitrarily far? You fight a carrot who... for some reason has a psychic 3rd eye? What? Obviously the problem isn't lack of "realism" or whatever, it's that the boss attacks seem to bear no relationship whatsoever to what the boss is. Like, the bosses might as well be amorphous blobs (which I think the first boss actually is).

Maybe this is some kind of deliberate call-back to old animated movies?

It's deliberate. One of the artists talks about it in his GDC talk

My main problem with this title is that it associates this wonderfully crafted game with a tasteless meme that many people never heard of. I'm sure that some people are curious about it and end up disapointed after discovering how disgusting the whole thing is.

What exactly is so funny about it? That is connected to crappy, forgotten, 100y.o. meme? Is GAF full of teenagers or what?

Yeah, those devs have some pretty fucked up minds ;)

It all looks so gloriously bonkers, I just showed my partner one of the trailers on YouTube and she refuses to believe its a game, "its one of those old weird cartoons where you knew whoever drew it was tripping."

Congrats Studio MDHR, mission accomplished!

Man, that title brings me back to sitting at a Starbucks years ago and overhearing a dude say to a bunch of his friends, "Hey, check out this 2 girls 1 cup video!"

I did not turn around.

On topic, I guess I might have to switch to easy mode considering the only things I've hard about it for the past few weeks is how difficult it is. Been waiting for this game for a while.

You're quite sensitive to this.

It's making fun of an infamous video while iterating the fact the game doesn't have online co-op

The 1930s was a rather wacky time. Still, you can't argue that they weren't creative in their insanity. ^_^ *Quietly waiting for tomorrow*

But oh well, game looks freaking awesome!

so we are teenagers for finding that OT title funny , but people who find the title offensive and of bad taste are "adults" ?

But like...an OT isn't known for its title. It's known for the layout and content inside. Also, how does one tell if a game deserves better?

You're getting way too worked up over this. It's a thread title, and the OP went through the effort of making a OT (which is no easy task, as someone who just did one) so he can choose the thread title. Simple as that.

Have to say, not a fan of the thread title either. Donít hate it but, yea, itís in poor taste. I appreciate the work put into the OT though!

Anyway, excited to jump into this. Iím not exaggerating when I say this is easily one of the most gorgeous games Iíve seen. Itís brilliant. Iíll probably suck ass at it but whatever. Theyíve earned my support.
