The following quotes were sent in by a fan of ours that I thought would help the blogosphere and the world at large better understand the struggles and challenges that we all face.
#1: “This is the first game I’ve ever played that’s actually good.” (I believe this was a quote from the game’s designer, Alex Kidd.
One of the reasons i play games is because i find them to be a good outlet for my frustrations and depression. I’m not usually very outgoing but i can really relate to the quotes.
Another quote was sent in by a fan of ours who said that the game was a lot like a game of tag. If you get something, you go to the next person. The game asks you to keep track of the cards you have which seems like a great idea. Also, the game is meant to be played with your friends, but we did play it in a pub full of strangers.
Like most things, the sad quote has its exceptions. We’ve got lots of good games here at Deathloop that are designed to play with people who are introverted, shy, or have a lot of anxiety. We’ve also got lots of games that are designed to be played with friends, but the reason they’re called “Deathloop” is because we have a bunch of rooms in the game with doors that you have to press a button and open.
Its sad that our game is called Deathloop because the doors in our rooms are all really close together! It’s much more fun that way and the fact that its called Deathloop is a pretty good reason because its such a well-defined game.
It’s a well-defined game because the doors in our rooms are really close together. I guess that’s what you get when you combine social anxiety with time-looping games. Maybe we should call it something else.
Time-looping games get you excited. Its like trying to fly when you aren’t really sure of what you’re doing. You have to have a set distance to the ground and your eyes are focused on something and you have to keep going, but you don’t know the actual distance until you get there. So with Deathloop it’s like a “go go go” game.
It’s like a time-looping game, but instead of trying to fly you are trying to avoid being squashed by the walls of your room. Or trying to avoid being squashed by the walls of your room when you arent really sure what you are doing. It’s like trying to fly when you arent really sure of what youre doing.
For those who think the game is too hard, I would like to point out that Deathloop is only 3.5/5 on the difficulty scale. It takes about one hour to get through the entire game. In fact, the game is a lot easier than it seems. Deathloop is not a game that you feel like falling off of; in fact, at the end of the game you find yourself flying.
