    Speaking of Lovecraft...

    Mark of the Old Ones - a Metroidvanian adventure

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1168767162/mark-of-the-old-ones-a-metroidvanian-adventure

    'Mark of the Old Ones' (MotOO) is a 2.5D Metroidvania physics platformer. Inspired by some of our favorite games such as Metroid and Zelda, as well as by the mythos of HP Lovecraft. We modernize the classics by adding dynamic inverse kinematic animation to the mix; giving you the ability to explore and interact with the game world in ways that you never have before, in ways that will quickly become natural to your fingers, brain, and gamer soul.

    The video is pretty freaky so it might be worth a look and it has a demo to test on 3 platforms. You will need one of those analog controller thingies to play it, which counts me out. Thought I'd mention it, because was made on the C4 Engine. Go C4!

    I was hoping this was going to be a subversion of Metroid. Instead of just murdering everything in your path you'd have to focus on avoidance. Lovecraft doesn't have much appeal to me if I'm not playing a mostly helpless human.

    What I liked about their programmer, despite him being pressured by his employer to use Unity, he bucked the trend simply because he thinks C4's engineering is superior. He was under a lot of pressure and it showed in his demands on the forums, but because of him we got better asset import. Don't know if he had any input into the design of the game though, but if he did the game would be better for it.

    The game looks incredible and very fluid. So he probably made the right choice. Unfortunately, the concept just doesn't appeal to me.

    One man project and he's asking for too little, and has already failed, is anyone really interested in this Akabaleth meets Minecraft game?

    They always come back for more. Besides, how else are you going to get your incline fix?

    Why college kids and hipsters cannot be trusted in a nutshell.

    Let's take a look:
    I got good grades in school, can I get a Nobel prize please?


    Why Atlas Shrugged is such a shitty book, you need real work to make great things, your 'superior intellect and taste' means shit otherwise.


    The Flash plague strikes again, yeah, why different tools work differently? What a mistery.
    How it was? Oh yeah, if you make a system that even an idiot can use only an idiot will use it.
    Turns out that the Atlas Shrugged paradigm failed again, without craft there is no art, all these fancy tools easy to use instead of uleashing creativity have unleashed countless morons convinced to be so smart and creative.


    What every executive knows, grand ideas come cheap but go away in a very expensive manner.
    This is also a typical case of project creators getting carried away by their own Kikstarter.


    Typical, when idealists are faced with reality fall back on the most retrive practiceses that they always shunned because they don't know better.


    As the old says goes, time is money, Marx says the same too, but I guess in Randdroidand these are insignificant details.


    Are there someone still convinced that lack of experience is not a problem?


    My, this is a subversive thought.


    Behold the plague of Discuss!!!
    Hint, if the discuss takes so much time it means that isn't working.


    Beware, you have gone full Communist here.


    Yeah, after games playing themselves the next logical step is game engines making games for you on their own.


    Says the grizzled veteran.


    Unfortunately this is the norm.


    Yeah, while people asking for a steack should be pissed off by getting tofu instead?


    Poor kid, see, he is not responsible, it's other people's fault, he ven felt pain, such a noble person, I guess that this is what we get from the 'deferred success' school of thought.


    Trolling, such a horrible, horrible thing, how anyone can handle it?


    Yeah, it's all about little precious you, why people are so mean? You only took their money.


    It's the inention tha counts after all, AMIRITE?


    Pouting?!?!??!?!
    How fucking old you are?
    Probably a Tranny/KKKodex


    Sadly he is right, Kickstarter indeed is all about giving money to college kids from its very inception, anyone expecting something more is a greedy and calous individual.


    Words of wisdom, what was Kickstarter all about again?


    What a revolutionary way of thinking.


    This is the problem here.


    You watched too much shitty movies kid.


    How about giving back the money or delivering what you have promised?
    I know, I am edgy like that.

    Why do people not get that for the most part trolls are almost always a symptom of a much bigger problem. Or not getting when people are trolling or being serious.
