    I hope the release date and price for the US is known soon.

    I watched the 30 minute video and I am happy to try it...but I have no idea when I might be able to.

    Skipping through that 30 minute vid and my major takeaway was that there's too much talking. I've sort of had my fill over the years of having to skip through that stuff, it just does nothing for me. Will let you guys try it out first to see if the gameplay to bullshit ratio is good enough. :)
    I can put up with text like that much more readily when it isn't accompanied by OTT voice acting (e.g. Persona, Xenoblade). Still, I'll be waiting for reviews too.

    Stupidly excited for Golf Story. I've never owned a golf game, and am normally dismissive of RPG's, but this does something to me...

    Can't people buy this now? Guess it would be too progressive if ninty to do the whole midnight thing.

    This looks pretty great, but I was already prepared to grab Stardew Valley and they look pretty similar.

    One is a farming game and the other is a golf themed RPG. The graphics are of a similar style but they're totally different games.

    I'm not actually sure how RPG this is. It looks more like a golf themed SV.

    I'm not buying the Witcher 3 either because it looks too similar to Call Of Duty WW2

    Oh OK, I thought Stardew Valley was a farm themed RPG. Is that not the case?

    @binky

    Stardew Valley is primarily a farming game with a focus on growing stuff, managing resources, crafting items and talking to NPC's etc. It's basically a 'best' of' Harvest Moon clone. It's a great game. There are some very light combat elements but it's far from the main focus. It's not like traditional RPG such as Baldur's Gate.

    Golf story has been described as an RPG but perhaps more in the way of how Pokémon can be called an RPG. It's hard to tell until more info and reviews appear.

    @rice_sandwich Cheers. Reckon I've only got time for one or the other mind you. Golf Story looks like it may be more immediate.

    Went to purchase this morning but of course it's not available, same as Picross. Fuck me, it's 2017.

    Oh ffs, no reviews anywhere either. Game informer have a 45 min video but that will be spoilery.

    According to devs is available from 3pm CEST so that's 1pm GMT.

    Which is 2pm BST (current UK time zone) :-)

    You should look over at reddit - people are literally foaming at the mouth to download this mutha. Got to give whomever is behind this mad props - next to no media presence or communication, no reviews, but the amount of hype that's organically grown is unreal.

    Isn’t it just made by a few guys in a shed in Australia? I suspect it’s as much them not having the time to promote as anything else.

    The tweet with the launch time was a bit confusing as they different regions don't align, but yes I guess for Europe its 2pm UK :)

    I quite the mic-drop approach. No tweets, no updates, just a "here's yer game, bitches". Better for the developers to spend their time making a good game than schmoozing on social media.

    Yeah that's not how marketing and PR generally works. That's a risky strategy. EG have given the game no coverage other than maybe a mention in the longer Nindies articles where its a foot note.

    I'd be shocked if they review it

    This is lining up to be a right gem I think, just hope it's not really short or something.

    If neilka can get EG to review Stephen's Sausage Roll, we can get this reviewed!

    Simple really, you just need to convince Chris Bratt that the game contains turn based alien killing with a golf club and he'll be all over it.
