A weapon that gets stronger the worse your graphics card is. . . Finally, my time has come.
@Blaze It Ken Just shove in your old gpu ...ooooooor remove it and use the port on the motherboard...bet you'll be a god then
I just did an upgrade. Gosh darn it!
A game that stands with peasant, i'am all in
Pineapple!I'm Tom, Level Designer and 3D Artist for Clash: Artifacts of Chaos. I've been following you for a long time now, and seeing the game I'm working on on your series, and hearing the things you said about it and that you actually liked it is beyond freaking awesome! Here at ACE Team we´re all fans of your dumpster diving series, and we can't wait for you to play the full game when it releases! 💪
The voice acting is incredible
As soon as I saw Pseudo, something in my head screamed "The Neverhood!!", laughed hysterically an jumped out of my eyehole never to be seen again.
Such a badass game!
@Crave200 no, their first game which has the same gameworld is from 2009
That first game you played clash artifacts of chaos was actually very amazing, took me by suprise how cool it actually was
The body and death system is just like mortal shell
The best part I feel like is the OST, the Psuedo's Theme music is insane ! I just went to check it out after hearing the beginning during the fight and I love it xD
@Jay Wingate You might even say.. Eldritch Insight.
It was so goofy, but so fun at the same time
Weird RPG is hilarious, and the talk-to-cast mechanic is novel and awesome.
Respect to that one (presumably) Chinese player on the voice chat of Warhaven for being pretty friendly. That "Goodbye, my bro" sounded so wholesome.
He was chinese
@Ho Moe lmao nah fam the souls community is so toxic
I thought it was great that the teammates took the time to explain the tactics in English. Not that it made a difference to the end result.
@no no its incredible how the American language has evolved and how other countries see our language.
"The gorilla is not part of the duel, he's just here." Imagine how that would affect every competitive sport out there. That would be a nice way to pump viewership numbers.
@Donnie Diddle "Editor?""Yes, my Emperor?""I thought the Bestiarii were sentenced to death yesterday?""Uh... they were, my Emperor.""Well the lions are still there.""Oh. Ah whatever the crowd seems to like it."
"JR you seein' this!? Who let loose a kangaroo in the ring!?""The kangaroo is ignoring John Cena! He can't see John Cena! Cena is just as confused as we are!"
@Anonymous 73 lmao "The lion is not a combatant but he is there" "For entertainment"
That’s kind of what the Roman Gladiators did
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.
"skill issue" has to be the funniest death screen ever
@FullTimeSlacker II give us an original funny meme then
@FullTimeSlacker II don't make me say it.
overused and unoriginal meme like “ratio”
Clash looks like one of those arts you did where you had no idea what you were doing but it turned out really good. The game looks super interesting
Hey there! I was the lead developer for Knights of the Kitchen Table. It was made as a school project over the course of a year, and we threw it out there to see if it stuck. Thanks for the love and showing it off!
@Костадин Аролски lol yeah look at that guy giving his opinion on the internet
@Martin P lmao, ok mr game critic
i think its absolutely amazing for a school project. When i first saw the UI i was like ok checks out but man the swamp level? you should definitely polish this into the big game it can be
It looks like combat magic
Might come back to polishing it up and adding more content if it gets enough popularity 😉
“I don’t have any dice” “then I’ve already won, I get to hit you first”“One of those sentences is true” is oddly the most badass thing I’ve heard in any recent game
He sounds like Walter White, except he's actually cool.
@memw2kd right, that was the thing that is true. He gets to hit first, but that doesn't mean he's already won
Question how to do submit a souls like request? I’d like to see pineapple try mortal shell
And he sounded like Jiraiya when he said it too
His voice reminded me of George Clooney
9:53 i feel like the dev came up with the name Warden Gamsey, while he was watching hells kitchen and made an entire game around it.
The art style and sound effects in mandragora were really impressive, I didn't expect such impactful sounding combat from an indie game
Clash actually looks amazing. Gonna give it a try for sure
Man I absolutely loved the Zeno Clash games. Don’t even remember where I learned about them. Thrilled there’s a new Clash and that it looks so wild
Clash: artifacts of chaos just seems so weird that it's oddly good... idk how to explain it lol. 4:39 idk why, that scene just threw me off so hard, but I guess I can relate to it lol. 6:31 It's like old school corpse runs. Lmao, 7:00 it takes the best of what dark souls has to offer.
I have to say that the microphone based damage in Weird RPG is pretty awesome. I don’t know how it’d hold up thru a whole game, but innovative idea anyway. 👍
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.
My partner plays games by freaking out until they die or succeed. I could see that making them very successful
I mean it's a good item for streamers or youtubers who do have to talk a lot but likely not good in a normal players build.
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.
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.
Wow - at 30:10, the big boss has animations to keep the lantern on a stick in the background, even when he turns around to face left.
Hey Pineapple,Composer from Path of the Faoladh here. I'm happy that you liked our game (and the music). Love your dumpster diving series. 😀
Clash is so fucking funky and creative. I really hope the design artist and devs get more opportunities
Would love to see your opinion of the game "We who are about to die" if you havent covered it already. Solo Dev over the last 7 years and I gotta say super impressed with what they were able to achieve!
May this series never end
Well you better get on adding fuel to the fire.[We don't have unlimited souls like games]
@KawakazΣ Going to second this. UNSIGHTED is an *EXTREMELY* good game. The time limit feature can also be turned off for those that just want the battle and exploration
Best ongoing series on Clip-Share fr fr
clash: artifacts of chaos looks awesome. reminds me of the outer wilds
Hey, thanks so much for including Mandragora! It's great to hear what you liked about the pre-alpha and what you think needs more work. We're always taking feedback into account and our team is still working hard on all aspects of the game, especially regarding combat mechanics - so hopefully you'll also feel an improvement the next time you play! :)
@Hadestown enjoyer I literally came to the comments to see if anyone else noticed the blatant copy of Yorick lmao.
Even if Pineapple didn’t like that one boss’s mechanics it biting his head off was still metal as hell.
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.
What is yorick doing there ?
Would've never heard of you guys without IronPineapple but your game looks amazing! I have a soft spot for 2d rpgs
Wow this Mandragora looks insane!
hey guys, just so y'all know, i got interested in weird rpg and played a bit, today i opened and went to have some breakfast, left the game open for 20-30 mins in main menu, when i came back i feel hot as hell, my pc was at almost 90°C and my gpu use was at 100%, so yeah, maybe the game got popular with this video and they did something shady, or maybe it was like that from the begginning, but just, don't play, i guess
So I assume some mining software in there?
Thanks for watchingYou won🎁🎉Send a direct message above to acknowledge your package 📦☝️.
The trailer for Clash was the first time I watched a youtube ad and went "hmm, let me check this out" in the years I've been watching videos. Wishlisted immediately.
If blind fate came to xbox, I would definitely play it
How sad is it that a game made in two weeks has a way cooler design for Rat King boss than Dark Souls 2 did.
warhaven could work if they make their gameplay like battlefield1 , sort of simulating war, but their combat shouldnt be like for honor
Clash is giving me big Absolver vibes. I played Zeno Clash 1 and I loved it, definitely keeping an eye on this!
may the soulslikes keep coming in
Just wanted to say, every time you upload one of these i watch the all the previous videos. the content is just that good
The first game has a great animation
I'm a big fan of this video series and with this being episode 16, a future video idea might be to go back and list the best games you've found while dumpster diving and do a follow up on those that seemed promising, but were still in development to see how they turned out.
Agree a best of would be great.
Might also be nice to take a look at the better known soulslikes, like Nioh etc. to compare them to Souls. Still way too many people that never gave anything not made by From a chance
i would LOVE a "Best Of" video.give us a top 5 best games, a couple honorable mentions and like a few fun categories like "weirdest game", "best art style" etc
@Regal Pixel King that's a damn valid point mate.
@GameDevYal they're numbered in the description
Clash has some of the most intriguing art direction I’ve ever seen, absolutely stunning, hideous, and gorgeous. Simultaneously.
Holy crap that intro is incredible. There's an Easter egg in every scene 🤣
The knight of kitchen table game seems similar to battle chef brigade
this first game, i love the dev. deff getting that on steam :D
Bro the " Grandpa is dead-yes 🗿" had me dying 🤣
@Raphael Magalhaes thank you!
@S Bock 4:40 sorry I should have thought of this
Where is it? Pls time link if you shout out things
Dude that intro animation is fire
bruh the voice acting and music of that first game were awesome
Does anyone know the voice actor for the orange guy at 4:15? He’s actually awesome for being in a steam dumpster diving episode.
I actually worked on Knights of the Kitchen Table as a sound designer, it was a student project at the college I went to. I made background music they didn't keep so nothing I made ended up in the final game, but it's still surreal to see it here!
I was finishing my last semester while you guys were working on this! Was kinda shocked to see a project from our tiny lil gamedev program showing up here
That's pretty cool!
That was a neat little game to see, very funny (and punny).
@I'm the captain now like really badly
@I'm the captain now eh maybe but i think you just suck
“American! Let’s go to C2!”Warms the heart
You should try "in celebration of violence", a souls like roguelike
why don't you talk about games that you enjoy besides souls like ? it will be interesting
If you havent tried it I highly recommend curse of the dead gods, it’s more rouge like than souls borne imo but it has dodge rolling parrying and resource management
He played through it actually in an episode!
Mandragora looks genuinely promising
Check out Maximo: Ghosts to Glory if you get the chance. It’s more reminiscent of Ghosts and Goblins but it was so hard it introduced me to the world of difficult souls-like games. Great PS2 game if you’re ready for some pain
I think your next steam dumpster diving should be a recap of all of the games that you said you were going to keep an ion that you were only playing the demo.
The attempts at cross lingual communication were oddly quite charming.
I lost it at Warhaven's radio chat dialogue in the *medieval* game setting.
@poika22 dude who tf cares get a life
@Jesse Gauthier There's medieval armor next to samurais next to catboys in castles next to world war trenches next to modern industrial mining equipment. There are barbed wire fences in settlements from the ancient times lit with torches.All with widely varying levels of fidelity and that "everything is shining because graphix" look of pre-bought assets that need to "pop" on the store page.If you can't tell any of this, that's a you problem.
@poika22 it looked pretty consistent to me idk wtf you're talking about
@Jesse Gauthier It's going for the "whatever pre-made assets we can buy" aesthetic. There is no consistent art style.
@Yourson Isold the sprinting animation is pretty sus but I wouldn’t count the long sword stance since that can be excused as it’s a correct stance for the weapon
Pine, Little Witch Nobeta (the game you covered in episode 4) just got released as a full game
I don't know if that should give me hype or depression, that Ark 2 will be souls-like (in terms of combat)
Damn, good animations.
Dude! That first one is totally inspired by Zenoclash! I really liked that game and the story. It's a shame that there were only 2
this game is 3rd zeno clash game. what are you talking about my dude
The first game just radiates with God Hand energy with Oddworld Odyssey aesthetic . And the voice acting is actually good.
@jacob norris Yeah the animations and voice acting were surprisingly great. It’s really just the frames between animations that look janky. I’m gonna play it and hope it improves .
The animations are also genuinely just really damn good. Like the attack animations may genuinely be the best i've seen from indie.And incidentally, good attack animations is one of the best parts of the soulsborne games (save for DS2).
It's interesting game As martial art fan it's cool game but I don't like how weird the characters is 😂😂
I want more of it
That's right, it really has Oddworld vibes
Please play Biomass! Super sweet art and just a nice general experience.
Where is the conclusion to the egg? You show an invincible egg man then cut to something further along.... how did you kill invincible egg man?? How can I trust a review when it is deliberately hiding such important information?
I wanna make a game good enough for 8 mins of one of your videos
What about moonlighter, its game that has a roll. Its probably one of my favorite games.
Thanks for watchingYou won🎁🎉Send a direct message above to acknowledge your package 📦☝️...
The first game is really impressive and the art style is so cool. I’d love to see a big budget game come from that developer with that combat and style
@Stavi_Deluxe Damn, I have both Zeno Clashes but I didn't realize they also made Abyss Odyssey. So yeah, they're pretty solid overall.
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.
Looks like an Oddworld game.
Technically, pretty much anyone is allowed to do anything, as long as they don't get caught.
would foregone or unsighted count as souls like?
Dang, that "updating level data" moment in Blind Fate was one of the coolest moments I've ever seen. A shame about... everything else in that game.
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!
it's like dumpster diving in the rich part of town sometimes lol
Also he plays lots of games out of Steam for a series called Steam dumpster dive. Not that I'm complaining though.
Clash reminds me a lot of skyrim for some reason
Great stuff! If you haven't tried Last Hero of Nostalgaia, you should give it a go!
I love so much that there is a whole team of people out there so fervently dedicated to making mutant animal punching games over and over.
Warhaven looks like a child of for honor and battlefield
boy I hope mandragora gets some good work done on it, the style and animation is gorgeous it'd be a shame if it continues to suffer mechanically
@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
@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.
@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
Thanks for watchingYou won🎁🎉Send a direct message above to acknowledge your package 📦☝️..
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.
@W tried it and was bored shitless ngl...
@W it has seperate environments, it’s a very good game but has its moments
I've heard mortal shell doesn't really have any varied environments and that it was mostly just inside a forest or some shit
He's covered it on this channel, I'm almost certain. (Otherwise I wouldn't have commented.)
I think you should try the demo for Jrago the Demon Slayer. A buddy of mine is working on that game.
Nocap this is my favorite youtube series for a long time now... I could watch this videos everyday but i have to wait :'(.
In the next episode i recommended you Hellapoint really funny and alternative souls-like game with online co-op
Warhaven is like For Honor meeting battlefield
I had heard of one of these, I'm gonna need you to make another video to make up for that.
20:10 Mario Bros. is a great souls like game then, but I think life is strange is the better of those souls game, ... maybe tied with Myst.
I love the design of Clash. You can really tell they let their artists get as creative as they want and I really appreciate that
Yea, y'all have to play Zeno Clash 1 and 2, same fever dream of absolute creativity, I love these games!
I played Zeno CLash one Xbox360 more than 10 years ago and boy, what a weird trip it was.... in a good way. Phenomenal artistic feeling of "Malaise", almost felt like a colourful nightmare sometimes. That studio is really cool.
Even as someone who sucks at soulslikes, even the star wars one, I am tempted to give it a try as the design is so awesome
30:25 that's straight up Yorick from league
Omg, in that first game, Mammoth stance makes you fight like Captain Kirk!
27:30 sure this is intentional!He is headless, he cant see!!!
I knew about the first devs because of Rock of Ages a stupidly hilarious game
The Clash game looks like so much fun tbh definitely gonna keep an eye on it
Still can't believe he's up to 17 of these.
Zeno Clash is one of my favorite Indy game series. Thanks for showing the new game off, looks very promising.
Thanks for watchingYou won🎁🎉Send a direct message above to acknowledge your package 📦☝️....
I used to be obsessed with the first one when I was younger, hearing about it again just sent me into a nostalgia trip
Dude someone else who has heard of Zenoclash. I thought it was a fever dream when I was younger.
OMG the new intro had me rollin'
The blind fate concept seems dope af imo, some bigger company should do something like that and actually put the time in to make it good.
I fell in love with Clash: Artifacts of Chaos. That game is something else
are you like, contractually obligated to include at least one heartbreakingly bad game with every video because consider that fulfilled by the blind samurai game if so
have you ever try this game?The Last Hero of Nostalgaia.This seems to be interesting
Weird RPG genuinely uses stolen assets
First one was actually kind of fun, it is lacking in a few departments and certainly needs more polishing but potential is there.
caretaker from mandragora is literally just Yorick from lol
That weird RPG stuff is actually the most unhinged, creative use of an RPG I could think of. That's unbridled creativity at work
@Just Have Fun Dude GPU usage being at 100% while in game is normal though
I can't find it on steam
i got interested on it and played for a bit, today i opened the game and left to have breakfast, after around 20 mins of the game on the main menu, my gpu use was at 100% and my gpu was at almost 90°C
