      Toss an angry gorilla or two midfield at random points in the football/soccer/whatever game. I would watch the fuck out of that. Keep moving or you get your arms ripped off by a pissed off silverback? Slap that on pay per view and you bet your ass I’m watching.
      Also why just sports? Any show could be spiced up with an 800lb gorilla. I’ve always wanted to see the contestants of the bachelor murdered by an endangered species. Cooking shows? Political debates? Angry 🦍 makes it way more watchable.

      Could be fun in a magic game where you have to say the spell you're casting. Would probably still need to be a supplemental element where your basic spells you can cast innately. Those old Harry Potter games where you had to trace the spell pattern in the air to pass classes is what I thought of first. Something like that.

    first games character design is brillaint, fights look a bit awkward but decent and could be improved via patch, looks like a solid game over all, just a but buggy with landscape colission on knockdown. that does need a fix asap.

  • Jedi John

    Man my only gripe I’d see with the first game would be the bit of jank and the over the shoulder camera, with a game focused on melee combat and multiple enemies, a more pulled back camera would be a great idea.

      The game looks truly gorgeous on every aspect (animation, vfx, sounds design, art direction), but I didn't need to play it myself to see that the gameplay looks kind of stiff and rough. From what I see the biggest trap for this game is definitely the old classic "beautiful indy game from outside but empty shell in reality ". I sincerely hope for your success and I will keep an eye on it tho.

      ACE team are pretty Goated imo, their games often lack polish but are really cool, i play them all; the only dud has been Sol Seraph. I would recommend you give Zeno Clash 2 a try, it's defo their most polished attempt, (it's only real flaw is that it's a little short) or Abyss Odyssey, though A0 combat is just not quite there, feeling a little floaty but it makes up for it in superb art, style and a pretty addictive structure.

    I feel like that blind mechanic would work really well in a game, but as like a level gimmick rather than a "This is always the case" type deal. Like a Cyberpunk game where your cyber eyes get hacked or something like that. Just feels like a bit much to have for the whole game imo

    For a steam dumpster dive, 90% of the games were really good quality. This series is amazing!

      @Testa cals I don't really blame them either. Over reliance on vector animation just bugs me a bit.

      ​@Biouke I am fine with it if it's done by a indie dev considering they don't have that much resources

    • Biouke
      Biouke Month ago

      @Testa cals You don't get the same results. Look at many indie games from the past few years, particularly chinese games, you can tell it was mostly animated with Dragonbones or similar software, it often looks robotic and clunky. These tools are great to save time but in the end it's just stretches and rotations, I wouldn't use it to fully animate foreground characters. It really shows.

    • Testa cals

      @Biouke I don't see the point of hand animating everything if other methods are much more effective and get the same results

      It's in pre-alpha, it's literally a demo to get the kickstarter going. At this point they're putting at least an extra year into dev time, which is more than enough to tune bosses.

    Warhaven animations are 100% ripped from For Honor. Played A LOT of that game and from what I can see in this video, I immediately recognize Warden and Nobushi walking and attack anims. That shit is sus as hell

    The mechanic of having your skeleton find your corpse in Clash is very similar to the game Mortal Shell. That's also a Souls-like and currently on sale btw. I think the devs even said they were trying to do their own twist on Dark Souls or something like that. Otzdarva did a playthrough when it was released.
