Hi, I promise I’ll write more later but I just wanted to start a topic on this crazy free to play game, by Suda51 and with music by Akira Yamaoka (the studios behind it are Grasshopper Manufacture and GungHo Online Entertainment). It’s a roguelike (but seriously, it has a lot more elements of a roguelike than I’ve seen in a console game before) dungeon crawler with asynchronous multiplayer and is hugely influenced by the Souls and SMT games.
In lieu of more words (I’m tired) for now, here’s some screenshots and some irc logs of me talking about it.
02:45 <@lenox> well here’s all da shots http://imgur.com/a/KXOIm
02:57 < Dracko> let it pie
02:57 < Dracko> so
02:57 < Dracko> this game is good?
02:57 < Dracko> and single-player?!
02:57 < Dracko> good thing i’m already d/ling it, i guess
02:57 <@lenox> it’s sp/mp
02:57 <@lenox> kinda
02:57 <@lenox> its asynchronous
02:58 < Dracko> so like dksouls
02:58 < Dracko> ???
02:58 <@lenox> when you die, that person becomes a ‘hater’ which is a player ghost
02:58 <@lenox> anybody can run into that person
02:58 <@lenox> for instance i found adi’s ghost pretty fast
02:58 <@lenox> you can reclaim your own ghosts and they’ll be playable again
02:58 <@lenox> you have to defeat 'em
02:58 <@lenox> and there’s base raids like mgs5
02:58 < Dracko> haha
02:58 <@lenox> there’s not really full dark souls style mp
02:58 <@lenox> as far as i can tell
02:59 <@lenox> it plays like a ps2 third person combat platformer which isn’t a bad thing
02:59 <@lenox> it’s got a LOT of roguelike elements, ones that i’ve never seen in a game like this before, definitely not a console game
03:00 <@lenox> i recommend it though
03:00 < Dracko> lenox you should make an sb thread
