It seems today everything has a sense of the past linked to it, retro is cool and kicking. This is the inspiration behind 3D Dot Game Heroes. This game is every classic video game smashed together into a smoothie of wonder, BUT in 3D! This will sound dumb, but imagine the 2D games, but in 3D. Right? It’s like…Avatar, 3D man!
While a game that’s main selling point is that it is 3D you might think it to be oddly enough shallow. I got to watch and preview the game this morning and let me tell you it is nothing to scoff at here. The game has large influences of game play from the games of old, but everything with it has a distinct flavor of new to it. You ever listen to artists that mash up songs to make their own? It’s very much like that and it is super fly, fool. You have your hacking and your slashing, puzzles, and some pretty sweet mini games to boot. I am excited for the game to release in May (May 11th 2010 to be exact). I think the thing that I am most excited about is the music in the game, It has such a “Neo-Old School” feel to it that I can’t stop listening to the music on the website. Listen to it. I want to wake up to that every morning.
The only thing I could hope for right now would be an old school controller to go with the game to get that feel on touch basis. But hey, that’s hardly a complaint about the game. Again check it out when it drops on May 11, 2010.
