I got this yesterday, been playing around with it for a few hours now, and I’m enjoying it quite a lot. Beautiful, handdrawn backgrounds and a wonderful 50’s jazzy score. The voice acting doesn’t have a wide range of emotion, but that’s something I’ve come to expect from Daedalic. Not too happy about the 3D character models, looks like they’ve been borrowed from Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island, and I hope Daedalic isn’t walking away from 2D character animation entirely in the furute. Other than that, I’m enjoing this atmospheric adventure. Anyone else playing this game?

MetaCritic average is 58 right now, so I think I’m gonna pass on this one….even though I was initially very interested. But hearing/reading a number of issues on especially voice acting and story cliche, I’m expecting that if I would buy it, I won’t finish it and get bored with it.

I am playing it at the moment and it is a good game. Nice graphics, and the story is interesting. I always liked movies in which the main character is trying to escape from prison so it is nice to play a game with the same premise, also it is interesting that the game allows you to play with two characters.

Hmm…I must of missed this one. Visually, it looks really nice. How are you finding the puzzles?

     

Recently completed: Game of Thrones (decent), Tales from the borderlands (great!), Life is Strange (great!), Stasis (good), Annas Quest (great!); Broken Age (poor)

Daedalic is just the publisher on this one.The creator is Gene Mocsy and Irresponsible Games.At the very least he’s the one responsibe(ironic xD) for the story.D might have helped to some degree on development,not sure,but they were mostly just the publisher.

They make sense, are all logical, starts off quite easy, and increases in difficulty as you go along (though I haven’t come across anything overly challenging yet). Standard inventory based puzzle fare, lots of character interraction.

If I’m not mistaken, it’s developed by Gene Mocsy (Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island) and Matthias Kempke who designed last years Night of the Rabbit with Daedalic. As far as I know, Matt Kempke has been working at Daedalic’s for a few years now, so I think it’s safe to say that Daedalic is also the developer.

Maybe..All I know is that Gene was the initial designer on the game and at some point Irresponsible struck up a deal with Daedalic.So it’s possible Matt is involved too as you say.

Yeah Matt is with Daedalic since before the release of Deponia,about 3 years now.

It’s been on my to-buy list since it was first previewed on AG. I actually didn’t expect it would be released until some time in April, so I wasn’t looking for it.
