Resolutiion, a very stylish fast-paced action-adventure made with Godot now has a teaser trailer

I'd say it's more than "inspired" by Hyperlight Drifter... it's a near-identical visual aesthetic. Not complaining, I loved Hyperlight Drifter, and obviously so did these devs.

Hunt down beasts, take their power and possibly save the world in Mable & The Wood, releasing soon

tofuheadhmm, ok, it does look interesting. but just looking at the video, "gorgeus locales" .. I don't know, it just looks
pixelated and messy with wonky camera. and without any action, so basicly it's a walking sim?
if it's that, it really should be in modern style, like for example Journey, or Dear Esther and the likes.


I'm concerned that you're right; the environment doesn't look engaging enough to be enjoyable in the way the first one was. But I'm trying to keep an open mind.

chancho_zombieok I'm not into space games, but the last one I played was Iron Sky Invasion and space combat really felt awkward with a mouse, so not supporting mouse it's a good decision imho.
Using sc-controller I am able to revert that decision. ;) I like using the touchpad for gaming, judge me.

you monster! XD

I loved the original for the music, writing, and atmosphere. It crafted a dreamlike experience by (among other things)blending a wide-eyed innocence a la zelda with some pretty heavy notes of sadness and despair lurking beneath.

I like that they are trying to replicate the dreamlike quality of the original in 3d, but I'll have to see how well it translates.

not sure about that voiceover, but he is correct about the art

stanI haven’t really played them yet, but these games are generally highly rated and on sale on GOG at the moment: -34% -50% -70%

I also bought Minit which seems like it could be fun, for 5€ or so: -40%

All the games run on Gentoo 64 bit (ALSA, Nvidia).

Hollow Knight does not recognize my Dualshock 2, ignores non-ascii keys, and has a strange French translation so it’s not ideal, but it’s still playable.

it doesn't matter, you'll still love Hollow Knight!

This game is great. After dying to hordes of vicious baboons a few times I finally got a good playthrough going. I nearly gave up when I contracted a repulsive fungal infection in my arm that kept emitting poisonous spores, but I befriended a great ape who saved me from despair. I called him Omo and gave him some painted chainmail to wear, and we became excellent adventuring companions. One day after getting lost on our way to a village we decided to spend the day exploring the area. We were hunting snapjaws and dragonflies in the mountains when I missed a shot from my musket, accidentally striking a pilgrim that I didn't see. Before I knew it a dozen pilgrims and their scrap-digging robots were running towards us with axes shouting stuff I didn't understand. Brave Omo charged, distracting the fanatics long enough for me to equip my missile launcher and fire a rocket into their midst. The rocket terribly wounded dear Omo, who died defending me from the last surviving pilgrim. Now I am all alone and the fungal infection has spread to my chest and I miss Omo.
