    Yeah it does look good, it's nice to start seeing what else the source engine can look like.

    However, I have strong objections to the music used in the video. It just makes it sound as though its a lot better than it actually looks, considering all you see is her running around throwing things about. Not everything needs to have dramatic music to make it look good.

    Think Lord of the Rings battle music accompanying footage of a game where a little girl goes about plucking flowers out of turfs. That's what that tralier feels like to me...two conflicting things there :/

    I'm at work, so I haven't watched the video yet. The mapping looks really good considering their timeframe for development I thought.

    Looks a bit boring. All she is doing is throwing stuff at people.

    Looks like it might get repetitive after a while, but looks good.

    Well it's a great looking amateur source game. I hope it also plays great too.

    Screenshots look very nice... but then again, everything on Source does smile-fix.gif
    Good luck to them, hopefully it'll be fun.

    I enjoyed the Sourcey fantasy vibe, and would like to see more Tolkienesqe fantasy games on Source.

    I agree with Psyke, but I think all the animations look like they need work.

    Oh joy, tactical, puzzle combat with a scantily clad (at least in the upper-torso area) women in a fantasy realm, just like I've always wanted to play...

    ...oh, wait...WTH is "...tactical, puzzle based combat."? It looks boring as hell. Maybe it could be fun to explore or something (doubtful, as it all looks like forests with mushrooms and little puddles to accentuate the 'Source'-ness of it), but the gameplay, along with the poor animations, doesn't look to be much developed.
    That's right, my sig image's color is formatted to the old forum color scheme, wanna fight about it?

    I thought it looked cool, smacking ugly things around with big rocks appeals to me. And she totally casts "magic missle" at teh end there.

    It's not an easy balance to achieve, but we do want to make a game that will be both the best competitive game since Starcraft and also one that many people can enjoy casually without being in a clan or an experienced or knowledgeable NS player. That's the goal at least!

    i think it looks good... the bobbing while running isnt too interesting but... well i hate to say it but, lets see you make better animations... it looks very well developed and valve likes it.. they had it in their steam update news deal a couple weeks ago..

    actually.. it kind of reminds me of ico.. and i was able to sit through that whole game so i should be able to make it through this one..

    Or just simply TC's and PC's.

    It looks pretty, but I fail to see how the concept will work. You know, unless they can pull off the kind of Storytelling that Soul Reaver managed, which was enough to make you forget about the rather simple minded combat system, then I don't think I'll find this game extremely intriguing.

    How successfuly they managed to be with this TC is largely dependent on how good their plot is and how innovative their game is. Maybe they can get some good voice talent too, from their student body. I hate to admit it, since I go to TCU (SMU's Rival School), but SMU is an excellent school and should have the kids that can pull off an excellent mod. I should see if my brother's friend is in on this game, since he attends there and is a CS major.

    meh.. maybe its just me but the fps wont go over 20... its usually around 12-16... and then when i lower settings 1) the fps doesnt go up and 2) i cant see what the hell is going on, what anything is and IF anything is...

    and the "concentrating" thing and the change in blur when you do it rapes my mind... gives me a headache...

    it would probably be good otherwise..

    I downloaded it in 30 minutes and completed the game is less than that. I think that should tell you enough about the game.
