nice. i know it's a little far off, but it's odd that it's flying under so many radars (clearly, including my own, before). the bibical and yet surreal style/atmosphere is interesting; like Dante's Inferno before, i'm not entirely sure beat-em-up is the ideal genre, but it's an intriguing project nonetheless, gonna keep an eye on this one.

What games were they?

 

Anyway, yeah, this game looks to have visual awesome down, but combat awesome is yet to be seen. All they've shown is one weapon - and to be fair, it's labeled "one of the pearls," meaning there's probably more, and hopefully more of those pearls are weapons. Still, combat's a big factor in my enjoyment of these things.

Before Dante's inferno I'd have been optomistic of a scripture-based game, but (and this is only having played the demo), it's gotta take more than a fluke to fuck up such rich source material, and therefore is my belief that the fundamental source of these things will generally mediocre(as a verb) the fuck out of any project this ambitious.

 

I still don't get why religion doesn't recruit more through games. Think on how popular Christianity would become with a Myst by way of Heavy Rain-style game playing as say, Judas would be. It's not like anyone's above sensationalising the bible...
