Come on, in an age of HD and 3D, I don't want Black & White with little color here and there...I'd rather watch Black and White WWII documentary than playing this shit!

I like the style, but I'm afraid of the way it might affect gameplay. I could see it being hard to distinguish enemies or important points, especially at night.

That's the thing just because we have HD and 3D with screens so crisp and vivid with true to life colour reproduction doesn't mean we can't delve into a bygone era. If we start limiting what developers can and can't do visually based on current and future technology then we're going to end up with everything looking the same and that's not a good thing. I see this kind of stylistic vision in the same way I see games like VVVVVV and FTL which are games that hark back to a time where graphics technology wasn't powerful enough to do what we can now, but they use the retro look as it's now considered unique and adds a differing charm and character from that of mainstream games today. I think this games art-style is a welcome change and whether it works out or not it's a worthwhile experiment nonetheless, this game is certainly a lot more unique because of it.

So, we should go back to 8 bit ear, beep beep song and square-shaped graphics...why doesn't Nintendo re-release its Famciom and NES rather than Wii U? The Arrow of time only goes to one direction, i.e.forward, not backward (despite reverse velocity).

Black and White is so 1930s...

Considering the genre though, that might be the whole point. Seeing movement in the distance and not being certain whether it's the rustle of leaves or some ghoul coming to devour your soul.

Love seeing games trying new ideas, hope it kicks ass and proves all the naysayers wrong.

*sigh*

I love the approach, stands it out from other games. Very artistic too, look forward to seeing more of it.
