    More info very soon, I guess.

    Pretty art, but the title is just stupid. Not expecting much of anything, especially from their past games.

    I assume a 'greedfall' is what happens when you slip on the 'icy' ground while rushing to claim the 'black geyser' for yourself and fuck this joke is lame enough as it is

    I've bought all of their games for €5-10 or gotten them in bundles. I need to play them someday. I've only played Mars: War Logs.

    GreedFall sounds like a homage to AAA publishers and the ensueing consequences on vidya game quality.

    Other than that, Spiders shovelware is best shovelware!

    They always come up with interesting (and refreshing) settings for their games, shame the execution is so lackluster.

    Wow they have guts.
    Colonialism theme is quite hard to pull off though.

    It must be tastefully done or it will slide into silly stuff like hurr muh innocent freedom loving noble savages or the civilized foreign colonizers etc.
    The causes and effects of colonialism are quite complex so they shouldn't overly simplify it or it will become another banal shit and boring product...

    I'm getting some Fae and "choose your side" vibes here. Hopefully we can go full pro-human. Let's see if this setting is more than just backdrop for the game.

    Could've picked a more appropriate song, though.

    Hah, trying to capitalize on their underdog status. Why not?

    Knowing their past titles, this looks like more of the same, and again with a mildly interesting setup that most likely turns the inevitable "meh" feeling into disappointment for not having that "mildly interes..bahblah" thing used for a better game.

    'Greedfall'.

    Shit.

    It really only allows threepossibilities. It's either:
    1. A rare ultra-optimistic piece about the fall/overcoming of one of humanity's greatest vices.
    2. A hardcore Marxist themeset, where, instead of focussing on cultural (aka 'not') Marxism, it's delving hard into the fatalistic 'history is determined, it's an unavoidable sequence of improvments which will degrade once they reach their economic limits, spurring the next advancement, and specifically anarchy will be improved upon by Empire, which will take a necessary step down in order to decentralise, those dark ages will be impoved upon by feudalism, that will be improved upon by aristrocacy, which will be improved upon by capitalism, and improved on by advanced capitalism, until advanced capitalism becomes unsustainable due to class conflict and fatal flaws in its financing, leading to communist utopia as the final step up the ladder', aka Greed(will)fall.
    3. Some fucking moron in marketing threw together two random words and ran with it, in the knowledge that the tech execs will never oppose it for fear of being exposed as 'knowing nothing about business'.

    Gee, whch one, which one. Obviously it's 3. They all have crazy flaws, but 3 is the only one where even the eggheads who have run massive statistical analysis in their sperg time will reluctantly admit that at least it's better than letting their marketing morons perform more than 5 seconds of work, b/c who the fuck knows how many ways they'd destroy the company if they hung around often enough to simuiate a full-time job.

    It's a different model obviously, but I think they'll be re-using some assets from their previous games where they can get away with things like rigging, etc.

    Not incorrect, though. It's fair to say that each Spiders game is better than the one that came before it, although I don't know how that translates sales-wise. Hope they keep it up. There's always more room in the skill-tree conversation-heavy action-adventure space.

    The first thing I thought was "Please, not another evil technological greedy drones vs goody-goody tree-huggers", since of course the old 'civilized settlers vs beastly savages' is haram nowadays.

    Hey, maybe they'll go Warhammer 40K with 'evil colonizers VS beastly savages' (I don't have much hope for a nuanced approach to the subject).
