Sully: A very Serious RPG
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:09:35 PM »


So I saw this article and video on Siliconera about this new RPG. I wasn't expecting much until I watched the trailer which caught me off guard and it seems pretty funny!

If anything, I reminds me of Half Minute Hero, not only because of the retro looks, but also the abilities the flash through regular encounters.
Also, besides computers, it's coming to the Vita which I think is nice, I always like to have some RPG to play on the go, especially being able to quickly turn it on and off and resume anytime.

I found the commercial completely obnoxious. The game might not be bad, though.

Honestly, I'm kind of burnt out on these retro parody RPGs.  It's been done so many times already.

Anyone else immediately think of The Sully Chronicles, the pack-in demo included with old versions of VERGE?

-- edit ---

OH SHIT SULLY THE CLAM? FUCK THAT IS RELATED.

WAIT THIS IS A FUCKING REMAKE OF THAT :D OH MY GOD I PLAYED THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THIS BACK IN THE 90S.

OH MY GOD SO MUCH NOSTALGIA.

(I guess this is technically a legit retro RPG, and not a retro parody, in that sense).

Jesus goddamit I really want a VITA now.

It looks cute! Whether it's fun or not is yet to be seen. At least I'm sure it'll be good for a few chuckles.

Oh hey it's getting a PC version. Goddamn I always wanted to see this thing finished. Also I guess it's originally from 1997?

Oh man the original game didn't have a proper battle system. You'd just get into random, non interactive 'battles' where you'd randomly lose some health and gain EXP, without ever going to a separate screen.

If anything, this looks really slick. I hope they do up a demo for the PC version. I'd love to give it a try, unless, of course, it's low on the pricing scale, then sure, why not? Looks delightful!
Just Greg, thanks.

Yep! It's ALMOST by the same guy (someone else wrote the story for it, but he helped code it on Verge). I know Grue personally, so it's a day one purchase to support him for me.
