Το Summer Daze δεν το αγγίζω ούτε με 10-foot pole (ΑΝ το βγάλουν ποτέ), αλλά οποιαδήποτε αναφορά των Coles στα QfG δημιουργεί πεταλούδες στην ψχ μου ρε γμτ.

Δεν βρήκα κάτι στο thread και νομίζω αξίζει μια αναφορά στο διαφαινόμενο horror διαμαντάκι The Excavation of Hob's Barrow. Αυτές τις μέρες ανακοινώθηκε επίσημα η συνεργασία του στούντιο με την αγαπημένη Wagjet Eye, οπότε έσκασε trailer και κάποια άρθρα εδώ κι εκεί.

Η Frogwares πρόκειται να ξεκινήσει ένα Kickstarter campaign για remake του Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened.



What is being remade?

“No assets or code are being repurposed from the original game. We are essentially rebuilding the entire game from scratch to run Unreal Engine 4, using all new assets or ones we can cleverly rework from Sherlock Holmes Chapter One which came out only a few months ago. We’re also adding entirely new gameplay mechanics while reworking the original ones to expand the ways players will be solving the cases. The changes to the story and timeline mean entirely new voice acting will be recorded. We’re also reworking the camera to feel like modern third-person perspective games, remaking all of the UI, animations, cutscenes. The list goes on. It’s essentially an entirely new game with only the underlying story in the cases staying more or less intact” - Jaroslav Martyniuk, Feature Designers Team Lead, Frogwares

A list of the major changes to The Awakened include:

  • All new graphics and assets made in Unreal Engine 4
  • New and redone animations
  • Full cutscene overhauls
  • Additional investigation gameplay mechanics
  • Rewriting the story to connect with the case from The Awakened to a younger Sherlock
  • Amplifying the story behind how Watson and Holmes came to be so close
  • Minor story rewrites to the cases
  • Additional side quests
  • New English voice-over recordings and translations into multiple languages
  • UI overhaul
  • Change to contemporary 3rd person perspective camera
  • Additional quality of life features
What is Being Rewritten?
The original Sherlock Holmes The Awakened was a standalone story with a mature Holmes and Watson taking on a case of what seemed like a simple kidnapping but turns into something much more supernatural and sinister. We’re extremely proud of the original writing in The Awakened which over many years seems to hold up as quite a few fans and critics have told us that they consider it one of the best Cthulhu-inspired game stories out there.”

“So we are taking this foundation and keeping much of the horror, Cthulhu storyline intact but rewriting it to be a direct continuation of our young Sherlock history. Most notably we’re shifting the timeline so it’s Sherlock, a few years after the events that took place on Cordona. Watson is at his side but they are just acquaintances at this point and this is their first major case together. Much of the character interactions and lines are being rewritten to reflect this. We’re making some changes to the stories in the cases as well as some entirely new side quests. The story of how the bond between Holmes and Watson could have formed is being amplified in the writing now as well as changes to the ending to line up with all this and the psychological impact the events would have on both of them.”
- Antonina Melnykova, Lead Narrative Designer, Frogwares

Why Are We Doing Crowdfunding?

“Under normal circumstances, we would secure the funding for our next game ourselves from the sales of our previous titles. But this war is continually throwing new challenges at us that each time requires we stop, regroup and adapt. This takes time, effort, and in some cases money that would normally be marked to fund the production of a game.”

“We have the bulk of the content, new features, and storyline all mapped out and locked in. But we have rewritten the original story a fair bit and plan to use all-new voice acting so we need to now record and also translate all this from scratch. As the plan is to launch the game on five platforms we will also need extensive QA time and resources. And lastly, the team has additional features and enhancement ideas that we would like to consider adding if we were to have additional resources.”

“Through crowdfunding, we can secure all these needs and also safeguard the overall funding of the game, knowing full well we now have the guaranteed means to finish the game and handle any hurdles we could face as this war evolves. This safety net will allow us to put our team’s needs and safety first as we adapt further without derailing the entire development and funding.”

“And lastly, we also know we have a group of dedicated fans who enjoy and support our games and want to help us as best as they can right now. Through Kickstarter, we can offer these fans the chance to buy our next game now and be rightfully credited for their support in the game itself while also helping to determine some of the game’s final content and giving them a few extra rewards and bonuses.”
- Sergey Oganesyan, Comms Lead, Frogwares

Choices matter adventure. Ωραίο αρτ και voice acting κι η γραφή του φαίνεται δυνατή.

@Borracho μπορώ να σε ρωτήσω; Επειδή θυμάμαι εσύ ανέφερες κάπου ότι έχεις παίξει το Syberia 3 (και δεν σ' άρεσε) και βλέπω ότι είναι σε flash deal στο GOG (στα 3,59, ενώ συνήθως σε εκπτώσεις πέφτει μέχρι τα 4,49) για μερικές ώρες ακόμα, και το έχω και στη wishlist, είναι τόσο άσχημος όσο λένε ο χειρισμός του; Δηλαδή είναι unplayable χωρίς χειριστήριο; Τόσο πολύ πια;

Μάξιμε, ο χειρισμός όταν κυκλοφόρησε είχε θέμα και όντως παιζόταν πιο εύκολα με gamepad. Από όσο γνωρίζω έχει διορθωθεί αυτό προ πολλού.

@maximum armor Τεχνικά δε θα συναντήσεις κάποιο θέμα, με ό,τι και να παίξεις. Το ίδιο το παιχνίδι είναι εντελώς άψυχο όμως. Καλύτερα να πας κατευθείαν στο αριστουργηματικό Syberia: The World Before. Δεν θα χάσεις πραγματικά τίποτε. Το recap του World Before παίζει να είναι εντονότερη συναισθηματική εμπειρία απ' όλο το Syberia 3 μαζί.

Ευχαριστώ πολύ. Δεν πειράζει, θα το πάρω. Μόνο για το χειρισμό είχα ενδοιασμούς. Θα το πάρω για να έχω όλη τη σειρά μέχρι τώρα και να μου λείπει μόνο το τελευταίο.
Τα δύο πρώτα τα έχω και απ' το PCM, και απ' το GOG που πριν μερικούς μήνες τα είχε δώσει δωρεάν.
