Looks pretty neat! Guessing it's a platformer from the last few seconds?

Dang, I am losing track of all the exclusives coming out on the 360 this year. This is shaping up to be a sweet one as well. And yes, it is a puzzle platformer. Think Limbo, Braid, etc, but with AAA graphics.

Nice, really, really like the look of that from the last few seconds. Do they say exactly what coming soon means as far as a date?

Don't believe so. I've seen some places say summer (as in Summer of Arcade), but they don't have any sources backing that up.

Indeed. I no longer distinguish retail vs. digital. In many cases, digital titles are stomping all over retail titles these days.

Yeah now after especially seeing those screens, so incredibly pysched to play this game. I have literally had 4000 MS points since Xmas of 2010 (not a type-o, started off with a little over 5000 thanks to gift cards) just sitting waiting to be purchased (doing a PSN share account had a whole lot to do with that fact). I have held off on spending those points on several occasions, and between this, Alan Wake, and a few other titles I am looking forward to on XBLA, they are going to be gone in no time.

And I absolutely agree, I find myself much more into playing downloadable games these days, as I tend to enjoy SP experiences more. And truth is most of the time these games are just as long as retail SP releases, and it just seems that most downloadable games always nail the actual gameplay element of games. This one just also seems to have gorgeous visuals to boot, so truly has jumped up on my most anticipated games of this year just based on this thread.

Looks a lot like "I Am Alive", which is also an XBLA exclusive. Not that I'm complaining, I'm definitely gonna get them both.

Wow, looks stunning. Got a nice Shadow Complex vibe there.

I've had points to spend for a while but I'm going to save some for this. Hope it's really good.

I Am Alive is not an XBLA exclusive, also coming out on PSN.

Yup, I Am Alive is XBLA/PSN. And, IMO, it looks nothing like Deadlight. They're different genres, their settings are very different, and I Am Alive is about a post-apocalypse type environment. I Am Alive is more along the lines of The Road (book/movie).

You're absolutely right. I just thought I heard it was an XBLA exclusive, but after a bit of research I can see that it isn't.

This reminds me nothing of I Am Alive.

Yep no worries, was just letting you and others know it was available on both in case others were interested in it.

I do see how the theme is common between this game and I Am Alive, but I think that is about it. Gameplay seems pretty different. I do plan on picking up both however. Definitely.

This looks awesome. I'm not a fan of arcade games but if this one is good, I'd definitely buy some Microsoft points to get it. From the video description, it says "...survivor of an apocalyptic world set in an alternate 80s." I'm guessing that the cold war didn't end and it resulted in a global, and possibly nuclear, war. The graphics look better than most XBLA titles. IGN has some high-res screenshots here.

Being a child of the 80's, I really dig that whole vibe. I clearly remember people still being (very) scared of nuclear war, Ronald Reagan as the president, and it overall not being the best of times. That is really kick ass and makes me like it even more.

looks good, thanks for posting this, will purchase it when it comes out. hopefully there's a Windows Phone version :rofl: love gaming on my new Titan. anyway, you can always send some of those extra points my way, Larry, i'm down to like a 1000 :rolleyes:

EDIT: this game is set in Vancouver? is this like TV and Hollywood now, games are cheaper if made in Vancouver tsk tsk? :D

Reviews are rolling in on this one, seems to be one of the most squandered opportunities in quite some time.

All of the negative reviews say the opening act of the game is great, and the rest of the game is riddled by poor game design choices, such as precise platforming with imprecise controls.

Really torn on what to do here, as the demo is no doubt going to be the superb opening act more than likely. Damn, seems like a true shame.

So I still picked this game up despite all the negative press, and I may very well regret picking this game up. :/ :laugh:

I checked out the demo and liked it, but I knew I would based on all of the reviews saying the first 30 minutes or so of the game are great. But everything I have read so far in the negative reviews is right on. For a platforming game that requires precision, the controls are at times indeed horrible. Really not precise at all.

It also is very cheap with some of the puzzles. like there is no way at all to figure stuff out without dying first, which I personally think is a pretty cheesy gimmick.

It is not the worse game I have ever played, but it is definitely not the best either. Shame as visually it is stunning, really do like it. And with better controls this could have been a contender for sure. As it stands now, it is one of the best examples of a squandered opportunity I have ever seen in the video game world.

I am probably about half way through the game based on what I have read, so I will see if i get through it.
