Frederick create account for crowdfunding at http://www.ulule.com/ ? For 2Dark he need 50 000 euros. Crowdfunding - nice step for lba3, I think.

As usual, Fred's haircut is top-notch.

This might have a chance. The trailer has this French feel, you know.

"you see a game like this and you see children cut in half, on the ground. Okay, it’s 12 voxels here and 12 voxels here, but it’s just horrible.”

Creepy voxels D:

The game. The game.
I mean, horror images and gore are all over games now. But being forced into situations where you might shot a child heading towards you in order to protect the others is pretty dark.

But they said that they want to avoid putting players in the situation of being forced (or even just allowed) to make this sort of choices...

Well, they don't want people running around killing everything like those normal "horror" games.
But I meant this bit;
Quote:
“with the visual sounds, you can see blue circles coming towards you and you don’t know what it is. Don’t shoot in the dark because it could be a kid trying to join you. So you think all the time ‘I need to shoot.’ No! Don’t shoot at kids.”
Its never the intention, but it sounds like the game presents some hard choices at times in terms of risk. Especially if the children might also attack you.

I have to agree with dark flame, this is getting too messed up. I'm disappointed.

I wish they didn't include children in this game anymore. :x

I just read the english interview... THIS LOOKS SO AWESOME !! So dark, so real so... Politically not correct ! Oh dear, I hope they don't dumb it down too much.

...
Am I too messed up ?

Even if it could be messed up, I like Fred approach on a more mature subject.
