  • It's not that laundry isn't exciting, it's that this is the only puzzle in the demo. That's supposed to get people interested in the game? Yeah, not the smartest move there. The rest of the game may be better, but this is probably what I'll remember.

    On the positive though, the graphics / backgrounds were nice, and I definitely approve of the people walking past in the initial screen.. Made the world feel alive, which was nice. And... well, that's about it really. It's a short demo, so it's hard to judge.

    Like I say, the full game (if it's ever finished) may be great, but this one puzzle did not leave me with a good impression. Still, best of luck to them. We need more Indy games.

  • Haha, oh man, I miss ol' Indy. This game looks great! Can't wait to play it!

  • I love the graphics too, I personally think their Indiana Jones sprite is better than the Lucas Arts one. Which is pretty impressive.

    I think there will be good puzzles as well as bad, XD, I hate to go all pseudo on you , but I'm anticipating a balance between high and low points of the game. But over all I think it has a fairly high balance. Probably will end up being a 80 out of 100 a 8 out of 10 type game.

    I'd put money on a 7 out of 10 at the lowest, but most likely a 8. But to some people it will easily be a 10 I bet. I'm anticipating the user average 7 at the lowest, 8 most probable. But I'm not THAT psychic. I'm just deducing through my own lens.

  • Little early to be thinking of review scores, aintcha? :p

  • Well I'm trying to learn to think in balance which if you would may provide insights into certain statistical facts, or records. Games like this generally seem to fall within that range.

    I could guess the rating of many finished games. I know this is only a demo, but at its current quality , even if for boring puzzles I can't see this game getting any lower than a 7, I'm expecting it to get a 8 out of 10. Maybe a 7.5. XD

    BUT, for the sake I could be wrong, of course I leave that up in balance. For all I know they will include voice acting, it will be horrible, dropping it down to a 7 or 6.5.

    XD

    Some of it is just blind faith, feelings which is balanced only as a personal feeling up against video games as they've been rated.

    The only game that I was shocked by the rating was Duke Nuke Forever, that didn't seem very balanced , something was horribly wrong there. I don't know what happened with that game. I would expect a 6.5 or 7 at the lowest for DNF...

    I know the world thinks you need math for everything but I truly believe balance can be a bit intuitive.

  • They need to sell all the Indiana Jones games in a single pack... a Humble Indy Bundle, if you will.

  • So you want Last Crusade, Fate of Atlantis, Infernal Machine, Emperor's Tomb and Staff of Kings? I don't think they were ever released on the same system, which puts a spanner in the works.

    PC comes closest with all but SoK, so a bundle of the rest might be nice though. Or at least, it would be IF I DIDN'T ALREADY OWN THEM ALL.

  • I was just making a pun, I have no interest in the games. :P

  • Actually , if some one makes a TOD adventure game, at any rate, it would be awesome to have adventure games to all 3 original movies. The 4th would be awesome too, especially the fridge thing. But...it might be too soon.

  • @ShaggE said: I was just making a pun, I have no interest in the games. :P

    It took me a minute but once I got it, I laughed my head off.
