1 week until release
who's looking forward to the witness?
>>
Never heard of it before. Looks pretty neat.
>>
>>324286468
Looks comfy as fuck. I didn't know it was releasing so soon.

All these games to play, man.
>>
Wasn't this suppose to be out months ago/
>>
>Jonathan Blow
I'm sure this won't be pretentious as fuck.
>>
>>324288368
I think it was due out Summer 2014 originally.
>>
Yeah I'm looking forward to it, as long as the price isn't retarded. Anything more than 20 bucks and it's a "I'll wait" situation for me.
>>
>>324286468
I'll be waiting for some non-sjw reviews of this. The world looks nice, I don't know about the core gameplay puzzle mechanism though, if it was exclusive I'd be more inclined to try it out
>>
To watch or not to watch streams.. (I cant play due to ancient computer)
>>
haha what
I remember hearing about it like years ago what the fuck
it's still not out?
>>
>>324288453
Braid wasn't, if you're going by the actual definition of pretentious.
>>
Is there a name for this artstyle?
>flat textures
>stylized models
>minimalist HuD
>but with actual lighting so it's not Cel-shaded
>exploration-based game

it's becoming the 3D version of the 2D-pixel-platformer.

what's the one on the bottom left

Top right looks really beautiful, what is it?
>>
I am but
>£50.00 for a fucking videogame
Not happening. I'll wait for the price drop.
>>
I'd completely forgotten about this game. I'll probably pick it up.

I'm not saying I dislike this trend, but it's a fucking trend alright, and everyone else is gonna start to hate it in a few years.

>>324289374
Ico

>>324289243
I like it. Unlike pixelshit it's really striking. I'm sure it'll get old after a while.

What are those two games on the bottom?
>>
>>324289243

wind waker style?
>>
>>324289392
>£50.00

Where did you find this price? I haven't been able to find anything.
>>
>>324289392
>it's full price
What? Isn't it going to be like 6 hours long, tops?
>>
1 week? They really fucked up with the marketing for this because I didn't realize it even had a release date until now. You'd think "the followup to Braid" would get some exposure...

looks cool tho
>>
>>324289546
bottom left has been answered already, bottom right is Clouds Below
>>
>>324289850
Thanks man.
>>
>>324289501
>rine

Found a trailer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOtiMtZxrrc

Can't wait for this.
I think I'll be a big fan of that new indie style you're talking about, it's like the soul of well-made SNES games translated/adapted to 3D.

>Is there a name for this artstyle?
The grahpical style is called cell-shaded.
The gameplay style is called walking simulator.
Both are the 3D version of pixelshit.

No it isn't. If there are gradients at all then it isn't cel-shaded.
>>
>>324286468
I have a 60% erection for it. braid fucked my head so i'm interested in seeing where it takes me.
>>
>>324290146
Those games aren't walking simulators. The water one whose name escapes me might be, but the Witness is a puzzle game, Rime is a puzzle game, Gigantic is a MOBA or something, Little Devil Inside is a survival action game, and Clouds Below is a platformer.
>>
>>324290478
"Walking Simulator" and "Puzzle Game" aren't mutually exclusive.
>>
Wow, this game look way different from what we were seeing a couple years ago. It looks actually interesting.
>>
>>324290539
So a game where you walk is now a walking simulator? Is Portal a walking simulator? The Talos Principle?
>>
>>324290667
Vanishing of Ethan Carter was a "puzzle" game, but you can't deny it was a walking simulator too.
Any game where you do a whole bunch of boring aimless walking for seemingly no reason besides but to pad out the game time is a walking simulator.
>>
>>324289753
An article I read said more like several dozen hours, even more if you plan to 100% it. Lots and lots of puzzles
>>
>>324290923
>exploration is boring aimless walking
There's a difference between the two. I wouldn't call Shadow of the Colossus a walking simulator. Or riding simulator or whatever.

I haven't played The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.
>>
>>324290146
This post is wrong on all counts.
>>
>>324291356
So is your face, nigger
>>
>his new game
I can't wait to see how much more pretentious he's gotten over the years since Braid.
>>
It kind of looks like myst.
>>
I'm really looking forward to it. I'm curious right now what the price is going to be. Doesn't matter though since I'm going to buy it anyway since 100%ing the game takes 80-100 hours.
>>
>>324291883
>since 100%ing the game takes 80-100 hours.
Source?
Sounds like a load of bullshit.
>>
>>324291516
Braid has pretentious writing, but it's still a great game.
Besides, you don't have to spend a second reading the books, and the same attitude seems to carry over to The Witness
>>
>>324289243

what is the middle right game?
>>
>>324292119
Jonathan Blow said it in this article:
http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2015/09/17/the-witness-release-date-confirmed-for-26-january-2016/

"There’s a lot here. When we started making this game, I figured it would have between eight and 12 hours of playtime. As it happens, the game we’ve finally built is around 10 times as big as that. If you are a completionist who wants to wring every last drop out of the game, you might expect to play for 80 hours, or possibly 100. For people who don’t want to go quite that far, the game’s still got plenty for you."

>>324289243

what game is bottom right?
>>
>>324292656
RTT
>>
>>324292330
For the type of game it is, I don't get that.
Maybe there's a bunch of side pixel hunting or something.
>>
>>324292749

cant find it on Google
>>
>>324292839
Read the thread then kill yourself.
>>
>>324289243
I'd call it low texture or something.
Some of those games mix it with low poly, but that's a separate thing
>>
>>324292330
>>324291883
Retards like you are why the industry is in the gutter
>>
>>324292838
The game has 677 puzzles and it according to Jonathan, it gets extremely hard where only 1% of players will be able to beat them. I guess his length estimation comes from time taken to work out all the puzzles including the incredibly hard ones.
>>
>>324293164
>The game has 677 puzzles
Oh boy.
>>
>>324293164
I fear they might've gone quantity over quality here
>>
>>324288087
>I didn't know it was releasing so soon.
>soon

It was supposed to be a PS4 launch line up.
>>
>>324292330

Maybe on a first playthrough. He 100% the game a few weeks ago in less than 8 hours.

https://twitter.com/jonathan_blow/status/681989172488372224
>>
>>324293164
>only 1% will be able to beat them
This is never true. And after a week, anyone will be able to do them if they check the Internet.

Besides, game lengths are ALWAYS inflated by devs before release. Cut whatever they claim in half, that's closer to the truth.
>>
>>324289374
Rime, ps4 exclusive.
>>
>>324293419
So were 90% of the games they showed at E3.
>>
>>324293419
Yeah, I remember. I just figured it would come out around 2020 or so.
>>
>>324293461
>>324293484
His estimate is obviously without knowing the answers to the puzzles.
>>
If it kills Undertale discussion I fully welcome it. So sick of seeing that fucking game.
>>
>>324286468
I was excited but there's only sliding puzzles and I don't like those

I almost wish it was a puzzle less game where you wandered about exploring or maybe it could have an okay gimmick like the last swan.
>>
>>324293519
>it was originally going to be an XBLA game but MS said no because of no MP

wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
>>
>>324293856
You are not Japanese
>>
>>324293519
I have a ps4, so alright.

>>324293856
What's MP?
>>
>>324291218
That's like saying Braid is 20 hours long if you do every single obnoxious puzzle that's not in the slightest bit required.
>>
>>324293714

So I wonder if its because some puzzles are time consuming or if there are just so many puzzles.

Or maybe it has a lot of walking around and forced story sequences
>>
>>324294004
Probably a lot of Mournings End Part 2 things.
>>
>>324293989
That's what 100%ing something is, yeah
>>
>>324293164
How many of those are drawing lines on a board?

That's a serious question it's all they've fucking shown.
>>
>>324294374
That's it. That's the puzzle mechanic. It's like a phone game, basically. Except the answers are hidden in the environment or something?

So basically you're playing a guy playing a phone game.
>>
Has Mr.Blow even hinted at the price range?
>>
>>324294798
Probably 20.
>>
hold on is this the game with that guy living in a forest keeping an eye out for fires and stuff or is that a different game?

If it's a diff game I'm not interested in this one
>>
>>324286468
Is it actually just exploration locked behind those line puzzles, or is there more to this game I haven't seen?
>>
>>324294374
It's all there is.
I guess the challenge comes from how you figure out the proper way to draw the lines, which can be pretty much anything, from observing the environment to sounds or something
>>
>>324294984
You're thinking of Firewatch
>>
>>324286468
Looks comfy.
>>
>>324294984
This is an actual puzzle game, unlike that one
>>
>>324294374
In one trailer you draw a line to rotate a reflective panel to the direction you want it to face. And you draw a line to steer a boat. I think later on it gets really creative with the line drawing mechanic.
>>
>>324293856
Fuck off, weeb
>>
>>324295153
The game obviously went for making an extremely simple gameplay mechanic, but getting absolutely everything out of it.
I can get behind that
>>
>>324295127

Okay, I'm not a big fan of puzzle games I was just interested to find out what happened after the trailer ended. Piqued my interests. Cheers.

>>324295102
Ah that's it, thanks anon. Enjoy your thread guys
>>
>>324295437
No problem. See you around, man.
>>
>>324286468
/v/ doesn't like puzzle games sorry. These aren't games. Only rpg's and dungeoncrawler action games are games.

Also, indie? Holy shit what are you doing, nigger? Put that shit in the trash where it belongs.
>>
>>324286468
FEEL THE BERN
>>
>>324293484
There's a good example in a Battlefield 4 easter egg that prevents being able to look up a solution online for any puzzles. If I remember right the puzzle was completely randomized in two different ways, so getting one puzzle similar to another is extremely unlikely, meaning you had to figure it out by yourself. I'm guessing The Witness will do something similar since Blow sounds so confident in only 1% being able to figure it out.
>>
>>324295646
To be fair, we haven't gotten a good puzzle game in years.
>>
What are the puzzles like?
>>
>>324295908
Talos Principle is amazing.
Or you don't like it for some reason?
>>
>>324296032

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDSrYiheVow
>>
>>324296105
That's good, but I'm not buying it for $40 even if it is Cro.
>>
>>324296326
If Talos Principle isn't worth $40, I don't know what is.
It has a huge amount of content, polished gameplay, well designed puzzles, good graphics, interesting story, great music and even replayability
>>
>>324296326
yet you bought dark souls, dark souls 2, and bloodborne for $60.

all of which take less to complete than the witness which is 80-100 hours.
>>
>>324296665
I don't buy anything for more than 20 anymore.
>>324296746
Bought DS for 60 I will admit.
Pirated 2 and haven't even played BB.
>80-100 hours
Jon pls go
>>
>>324296746
Thing about puzzle games is that on second or more playthroughs, the puzzles still have the same solutions. So...
>>
>>324296291
It's on PC you retard.
>>
>>324297443
With puzzle games there's a high chance that every piece of content is completely unique though
>>
>>324298954
>unique though
Not really.
>>
>>324294768
Why would you need hints in the environment to solve a line puzzle.
