Back to Today's Deal

Only 8-bit platformers in the store?


#9

I think Earthfall is a bad example as it’s a game that’s reliant on playerbase numbers, which aren’t exactly skyhigh. By dealing with Chrono the game benefits too so it’s a mutual transaction.

Please not Fez…if it had been a Nintendo-esque plaformer I’d have enjoyed it, but the mind bending puzzler it is, well I can safely say I was glad to be done with it.

Would like to throw in -

I’d also suggest these:

I’m personally awaiting an onslaught of 32-bit throwbacks. Smooth sprite animations, tacky 3D graphics and cheesy FMVs with better, but still bad 3D graphics, awesome music ala the Mega Man X games on the PSX/Saturn.


#12

Anything which doesn’t look like a Sega Master System game. I didn’t see a thread about converting coins to coupons - do you have a link to the thread? Not enough interest to exchange coins for coupons?


#13

Could we trade our coins for some coupons from these places too?

Getting games is one thing, but we need toilet paper and cereal too.


#14

Been completely into this game in the last couple of days:

It’s absolutely amazing though with quite a bit of difficulty toward the middle-late game. I think I am pretty close to the end of the game, but the last boss (that I played) has me wondering if I will ever finish. Though there are built-in even mid-boss check points that make it not so intolerable. It’s just a really cool platforming game with a fantastic script (imagine a really long movie that has a good story line) and a ton of pop culture references.

It’s completely underrated and under-played in terms of audience attention.

I will be writing a complete review soon…


#15

not exact but in the same vein:

I’m sure there are others, but that’s what I could find in a couple minutes. About to get off my lunch break now though :slight_smile:

Ok, Boomer

don’t u get it? it’s time for 32-bit or even 64-bit games!!! (or coupons for stitching supplies)

It’s 2020 goshdarnit


#17

coupons for cakes and pastry? one step closer to the Dream
one day we will be able to use coins to buy cakes
i’m sure
i’ll just patiently collect my coins waiting for that


#18

I got excited, went to the coin shop, and there’s not a single 8-bit platformer there ):


#19

now that is just sad


#20

Now imagine how much will 16-bit games cost in coin shop … /s


#21

Up to a max of 65535.


#22

It’s under-played because most folks don’t care for 2D platforming games anymore. I wouldn’t mess with that game even if it was free.


#23

you see, that’s your loss. I suspect you must be quite young. I’m 39 and I can’t wait to play that game, and I’ve been playing The Messenger atm, and it’s awesome, but then again, I grew up with such games, so that might be the difference between us.

That doesn’t mean I don’t play RDR2 atm as well, and next will be Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order and then Control, and I should get back to Ass Creed Odyssey as well…

tenor


#25

nah, it should be about 13.5k below that actually, pretty sure


#26

I think it’s underplayed due to lack of exposure, with all of the junk games that come onto the Steam platform on a daily basis. It’s a hidden gem that’s not had enough attention.

I am glad that by the giveaways on Epic it will garner a lot more attention.

I am only saddened by the fact that you feel that 2D platforming games are no longer a worthy-even-free style of game. I completely agree with @M00 and @KSib, I had to reread your line a few times to make sure I was understanding it properly.


#27

good luck trying to convince that to the hordes of people eagerly awaiting Hollow Knight Silksong, or Ori and the Will of the Wisps, etc, etc, etc :+1:


#28

The majority of gamers out there aren’t looking for 2D sprite games. Those you mentioned are good, however I would wait until the best sale to buy them. 2D games are just limiting - left to right or vice-versa.

I get it - if I had a store I would defend the merchandise too.
