Here it is, everyone!

The graphics, animation, and overall presentation look superb! I love the hiding mechanic, and how it creates a vignette effect.

Jeremiah's work on the soundtrack was once again sublime! Good work!

Overall, I loved the trailer! Can't wait to hear impressions from the floor!

(Also, my apologies if Seith or David wanted to post this officially. I was too excited not to share! :D)

Ha, finally! Thanks for the link Gab!

I love it! It has a very epic and cinematic feel to it, while still showing some of the game mechanics. At the end scene where Tilo is waddling around with the plate armour I had to laugh out loud and when the giant crab broke through the door and he turned on his heels I had to hold my belly! Amazing work on the animations! Seith is also nailing the feeling of scale. Everything feels like it is a miniature, the dungeon, the prison, even the castle.
Also interesting to see that the game will definitely be coming to Xbox.

Very VERY VEERRRY awesome. Love the nuance in animation and movement. That last part where Tilo is humorously waddling in the heavy plate armor, then spins on his heel and tries to run from the crab is amazing because the animation of his run feels accurate to the armor and isn't just a sped up version of the waddle. :)


And we got to see the rats finally! :) They, with their blood red eyes, look properly menacing and powerful. The crab was HUGE. the environmments were vast and interesting. And I like that they showed the hiding as well as some of the puzzle work in the game.

And this is still sort of alpha stage.. haha.

Amazing! I've written on these forums before, but I just wanted to say the Gamescom trailer reminded me of Nimh, Feivel, and also the sculptures of Beth Cavener Stichter: have you guys heard of her?
looks like I may indeed be getting an XBox One. Bravo Ghost of a Tale!
definite NimH vibes coming thick and fast!
