And most likely they rightfully can be proud! But I don't think that it's of interest for the average consument. Everyone who's interested in global situation of game development would lokk it up anyways.

Now his usage of adverbs might be misdirected as English is not his native language. Perhaps he meant big as in awe-inspiring and thought provoking quickly told as the clock twirls.

perhaps i took his comments too seriously and we have no clue (good or bad) what this game will deliver.
I guess we'll see. I'm not particularly interested at this point, but I think it looks good and I love sci-fi.

Most long CRPGs have a lot of filler or superfluous story bits - which, to me, isn't necessarily better than a short, well-told story.

In fact, some of my favorite games in terms of story are right around this amount of playtime - including Bioshock Infinite and Last of Us. Both games have a lot of combat taking up tons of playtime.

Well, I actually appreciate knowing where the developers come from, as some areas can have a very strong cultural influence on game design.

Japan being perhaps the most obvious example. I've learned to be very sceptical of certain asian games, because they have a very, very different culture in terms of what's fun or meaningful when it comes to gameplay.

That said, I've enjoyed many games with an asian origin. But it's still relevant.

Also, smaller countries tend to have smaller industries - meaning they tend to have smaller budgets.

I think it's quite relevant.

It seems a bit short for my liking, I'll more than likely wait and see if a friend or two gives it a whirl first.

I'm very interested in the game style, but not so much by the play time estimate. Still, I'll follow it and see how it turns out. The graphics look to be hand painted; more like Shadowrun than PoE. Still, the brief facial shots they showed look pretty good.

Since very few computer games are coming out of Latin America, I assume they want to brag about being a new player in a small market, just like every time a game comes out in South Africa or Asia, or wherever.

Fair point.
But still the relevant information for me would be that the game (setting) has a specific cultural touch, not that where it has been developed.

Fair enough, but that can be pretty hard to establish

Sometimes, I don't think the developers realise that they're influenced by their own culture in a very specific way.

But I understand why you have a problem with it and I empathise with that position - I just don't think it's necessarily a bad thing.

Na, it's just a little nitpicking and it won't influence my buying decision.

I have a bias in favor of Eastern European and German developers. They seem to make games I like more often. *shrug*

I'm with you there at least when it comes to RPGs. Outside of Bethesda, I really can't think of any (current) American developers that I'm still a fan of.

I'm interested for sure, just the fact that it's isometric and Sci-Fi is enough to warrant that. Turn based and with a party? Sold. Unless it's crap of course, but I can name quite a few games that are considered "bad" that I highly enjoyed because of an interesting setting or good mechanics.

Sounds pretty good to me. And honestly I don't why some of you people are so obsessed with lengthy games. Very rare that very long game can hold my interest until the end, and I'd rather be left wanting more than slogging through another trash mob and hoping I'm almost at the end. Also quality over quantity.
