I haven't paid much attention to interviews, so I have no prior baggage with the developer, so I didn't bring that with me to the game. I've never picked up on anything that felt like pretension while playing it, maybe these factors aren't unrelated.|
Compared to Echochrome's "Knock on the door" splash screen and chamber music accompaniment, calling PJE prententious seems as strange to me as someone calling Tetris or Geometry Wars pretentious. It all seems simple and functional to me.
Fair enough if your views differ. Knowing how you feel about blowhard developers, I'd imagine our feelings about the Braid review are closer than this one. Although I think Braid is a fine game, as a game.
Edith: this at JTN, in case anyone's as drumk as me.
