High end game design? This is an adventure game we're talking about. This browser-based/Flash stigma needs to end. A good game's a good game, no matter how it was made. Machinarium was made in Flash,...

Well, Moebius is a new IP with nothing for people to go on but two pieces of concept art. If you look at The Banner Saga (another new IP), they showed off a lot of stuff, including in-game footage....

I never did finish Apollo Justice. After 4 games of pretty much the same thing, I kind of got tired of it, but I do miss the characters. It may be time to pick up Miles Edgeworth: Investigations.

Holding off on the campaign will only build anticipation. Waiting won't deter the people that want to give money, though it may frustrate hardcore Tex fans who just want to give their money now :P

Looks like both Tim and Ron want the game to be 2D. Ron's up for...

I'd say it has more to do with the amount of affordances allowed to the player (amount of items in inventory, available locations etc.) and how well the game directs the player.
