    Nothing came up when searching for Enslaved on the forums so here we are.

    Anyway going to kick things off by asking if anyone has seen a cast list for this yet? As I was wondering if they've got Anna Torv to play Trip (Nariko in Heavenly sword, Agent Oliva Dunham in Fringe)

    Game, film, TV show? What the hell are you on about?

    New game from Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword devs) for PS/360.

    screenies

    and details

    I have high hopes for this, I liked Heavenly Sword and was hoping for a HS2. But I guess that won't happen now. :(

    I really dislike the character design.
  • Deleted user 25 November 2009 09:08:32
    Nitin Sawhney doing the music, Alex Garland doing the story, Ninja Theory doing the cinematics, all based around the story of Monkey(!)... Could be a winner

    More game, less button mashing, more game, less cut scenes, more game, less talking about combining movies and games as a platform, more game, less hype, more game, less talking, more game...

    Do you hear me Ninja Theory?

    For a second I thought this was about the awesome band.

    Looks cool, reminds me partly of Legacy of Kain / Tomb Raider, and a few others for some reason.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Ha i got battered in the comments for remarking how the engine/lighting/environment/robots makes things look a bit similar to bionic commando, it still does.

    I have low expectations.

    Plubs

    Hmm Alex Garland co-writing and it's a loose version of the Monkey story? This is sounding a lot more interesting.

    I loved the art style and scenery design of Heavenly Sword. This one looks promising as well, at least from the screenshots
  • Deleted user 28 March 2010 10:24:35
    Monkey looks a tad generic at the moment. It'd be nice if he had a bit more monkey to him.

    As long as it's got "twing twang" in it, I'll be happy.

    Didn't really like HS, that doesn't mean I'm not like Enslaved.

    Gametrailers posted up an interview featuring artwork slides from the game. You might learn some new gameplay details, whilst watching through its four minute run time. The man doing the talking says the game will be out late 2010. Pleased to see, from the IGN article, that NBG will have more to see of Enslaved ready, in time for E3. I really look forward to seeing what they show. :)

    Looks great!

    Our month-long focus on indie games starts with my look at the PS4's best game (still): Resogun!

  • Deleted user 12 May 2010 07:39:01
    Yeah it does appear to be a potential sleeper hit for the end of the year, noted this inthe trailer comments, but I have concerns over the Uncharted type platforming that does much of the work automatically after you point in the right direction and jump.

    I think that some of the animation for the lead seems a bit floaty for his bulky physique but then he is meant to be Monkey. Otherwise it is easily one of my most keenly anticipated games for this year among all the unambitious and dull looking games by other Western studios.

    The recent Namco pre E3 event offers up another interview and new gameplay footage:

    Slightly worried about this becoming too muddled, both culturally and mechanically, throwing in too many ideas from other games but hope as we see more it becomes clearer how the initial promise is panning out in the final version.

    Come out of nowhere this.

    Must say that I didn't even know of it until I saw the ads on this site.

    Name me a story Alex Garland has been able to complete without a messed up a third act ; )

    Game looks ok though and I loved HS.
  • Deleted user 20 July 2010 14:26:19
    Got to say this game does look pretty damn good. Even though i didnt like HS, this looks a much better game.
    Dont know why Ninja Theory are making comparisons between their game and Uncharted 2 though?, surely thats just going to raise expectations too high?.
    Why not compare it to Dark Void or Dead to Rights?, much lower expectations that way!

    Couldn't agree more. It might be good but the chances of it being as good as Uncharted 2 are slim.

    It's a pity they had to abandon the engine they built for Heavenly Sword. Enslaved looks noticeably worse, the environments in particular look weak.

    I'm guessing the PS3 version will suffer also because they're using Unreal Engine.
  • Deleted user 22 July 2010 14:53:03
    Reminds me of Bionic commando for some reason. That game was wank aswell so hopefully this will be better.
