    Well nasty world-destroying DRM aside, anything Paul Robertson touches is bound to be awesome. Too bad it’s not getting published by an indie.

    Too bad they tried to cancel the game, then revived it and moved it to their shovelware ubisoft china studio!

      Too bad they removed the person that brought it to the studio, hired the artistic director, and was the soul of the game

    Let’s hope these screenshots have been enlarged by a fan or something… Bicubic interpolation and resampling kills pixel art. Nothing worse than fuzzy pixels. Misses the whole point.

    Their set was incredibly entertaining last night. I’m a new chiptune convert.

    So, are these actual gameplay screens, or will I actually be able to understand what’s going on while I’m playing?

    FYI, these are (I believe) screenshots of the visuals they showed on either side of Anamanaguchi when they played at PAX. I’m pretty sure it’s not gameplay footage although I’m assuming the sprites will be in the game.

    It looks like the visuals are actually for a handheld console. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out it was for the DS only. Those visuals on anything less would be an abhoration if I’m honest. Chillax people. I’m sure everything will turn out to be ok. Everybody should just play the Xbox and you wouldn’t even have an opinion on DRM.

    Wow – how awesome for Paul. This is very exciting. Did you guys know that Paul Laurence Robertson doesn’t even have an entry on wikipedia?

    I’d say it is high time!

    It’s really a shame it looks so nice considering Ubisoft’s DRM….

    “This is honestly everything I want in life.
    Along with the restrictive DRM that is sure to come with a UBI Soft Product.?

    Thrill & Joy for all!

    “We at Ubisoft are proud to announce that this product will only require two forms of DNA sample from the user to be played at each session, as opposed to the eight our Digital Rights Management system normally requires. We have listened to our customers’ complaints and feel this is a more convenient solution to their DRM needs.”

    Sorry, couldn’t resist taking a swipe at the moron publisher.

    I echo the comments about DRM. I won’t be buying anything from Ubisoft until they wise up.

    Is this Paul Robertsons first game? I remember seeing the Pirate Baby video and not being able to believe that someone put so much work into it and it WASN’T a game. It seems so silly to me to think that he designed all those animations (which are gorgeous, funny, and incredibly entertaining) and couldn’t get together with a programmer to make it work as a game (especially after it went viral, putting that on the App Store or on Steam would be highly lucrative, even now).

    If it is indeed his first game, I’m looking forward to giving it a play, Ubi or not.

    Holy Socks, people sure are in a flap about Ubisoft, so much so that they can’t dislodge their heads from their butts and get excited about the freaking SCOTT PILGRIM GAME. I mean…Seriously! Guys, what’s the deal here? Yeah I get it Ubisoft=bad but could you put that aside for five minutes and get a little hysterical over how great it is that this licensed game will be upwards of six kinds of awesome?

    • dodongo says:

      Yeah, this is likely a console game; no authentication servers needed. The DRM issue is with the PC version of Assassin’s Creed (and honestly locking people out of that game is doing them a favor).

      Yeah, it’s awesome. It’s the most enticing looking thing I’ve seen from a large developer in god knows how long. But…

      Don’t belittle those who want to take a stand on Ubisoft’s DRM. They believe, and I agree, that Ubisoft have over-reached, and are very close to open contempt for their customers.

      I want this game. I want it badly. But I also want it still-playable in 3 years time after Ubi have shut down their DRM servers after realising what a fucking godawful idea that was.

      If I buy a game, it’s MINE. Internet or no. I bloody well paid money for it and I’ll play it whenever and wherever I bloody well choose, for fucks sake.

      • AirPillo says:

        To be thorough Ubisoft has always had some open contempt for customers. Buggy releases, flawed patches (with too few released), abysmal support, and a corporate culture of “somebody else’s problem”… good games get released despite Ubisoft, not because of them.

        Give the same dev talent to a better company and publisher and you’d likely receive better versions of their games.
