I think Heaven’s Vault graphic choice is pure genius. 3d works well for environments but bad for characters. This way they have the best of both worlds. The 2d characters are really good at conveying expressions and moods.
This showed up in my Twitter feed today, and it looks both gorgeous and intriguing:
Never heard of it before, but it seems like something I’d enjoy. Anyone who had that on their radar?
Has someone played “Yet another hero story”?
No, but that looks like Guybrush with a donkey
that’s why it’s interesting
Gibbous will be out later today.
The Great Perhaps:
Isn’t it a platformer?
There are levers -> adventure game.
In that case, the '90s adventure game Ion Fury just came out.
It’s made on the Build engine.
Also on GOG and it looks great!
If ‘adventure’ is not at least in the top 17 of Steam keywords then it’s a very generous interpretation of adventure game genre
Edit: they also have a dev blog https://3drealms.com/devblog
At exactly 11:00 in the video of Ion Fury, they mention the game has references to Maniac Mansion => adventure game
…“From Maniac Mansion to Breaking Bed”…
That’s what happens when you keep tying all those boys to it, Edna!
