This sounds really depressing. Set your alarm and this little hero will go on adventures, having a fucking blast, while you waste all day at the office. He recruited two kickass laser robots and an android sheep and found a sword of lightning bolts while you were at work, bitch. Now make sure he gets a good sleep. He needs it so he can go on more adventures. You? You have your morning Starbucks, loser. Maybe if you provide him with enough moral support he'll send his demon familiar to help you with your next batch of monthly invoices.

:lol: exactly.
By the time the hero has killed the last boss, saved the kingdom and married the princess, you'll be trying to commit suicide with a stapler at the back of the office storage. That last alarm may come too late.

So it's a plot to kill all casuals, then. Well thought.

The more insulting thing is, check out his ring finger, he has a ring on it indicate that he's married but he wakes up alone with his phone and go to bed alone :lol:, cuckold detected.

So you really made news out of this... how wonderfully wonderful! :lol:
Isn't this kind of mean toward the developers? Japs aren't too good at picking up sarcasm in english...

Well, I guess any free publicity is good for them.

I hope next someone will make an RPG for people who have time but don't have the motivation to play.
I thought every AAA game is made from this audience

So they finally made a spiritual successor to Dungeon Siege, only this time game operates like a alarm instead of a screensaver.

The thing is that a role playing game that plays itself MOST OF THE TIME could actually work as a game idea : something to check on the background. Give your character instructions on things to do daily, main objectives, strategy for battles, leave the game running in the background and light up your phone once in a while to see how it all unfolds and give some extra instructions. This would actually be a game and yet pretty much achieve everything this game sets out to be.

Finally, a game made by gamers who aren't really gamers anymore for gamers who aren't really gamers anymore.


Wait how is this different from Fable?

1: Since everything is activated by setting the alarm, it totally follow the player life rhythm. By having a good sleep, the hero will regenerate as well, a healthy life will have impact in the game.

Finally, choices that matter. Codex GOTY.

What the fuck, this was posted as front page news when there are undoubtedly far more deserving games needing the coverage? Fuck you, DarkUnderlord.
