I'm not sure what kind of game Roundabout developer No Goblin is playing. They've posted an April Fool's joke, but then excessively or perhaps sarcastically remind the readers that's it's a joke and that they definitely shouldn't preorder Roundabout. Is this a trick to get me to preorder? I think it's working. Or it might be a touch of nausea from Roundabout's first-person April Fool's joke. Either or.
Roundabout, the top-down puzzle-y game where players try to fit a spinning limousine through an obstacle-laden environment, just went first-person (but not really). With the Georgio Cam preorder bonus (but not really) players take on the role of limo driver Georgio Manos. Don't worry, if he can do this for a living then it must be safe and healthy for everybody (but not really).
"I bet you’re so fooled right now. I bet you were all like "Wow, I feel really sick watching this", followed by "This is stupid. Why would I ever pre-order Roundabout in order to get this dumb bonus extra build where the game is basically unplayable. I’m not even the kind of guy who would start an eSports Georgio Cam eSports League based on a dumb pre-order gag".
Well, lucky for you, it’s fake. That’s what April Fools is all about, and we here at No Goblin LLC are proud to enrich our corporate brand with such lighthearted tomfoolery. Your $9.99 that you would have wasted on a pre-order for Roundabout is safe to buy hats or DOTA lanes or Dew XP or whatever the midcore yacht rock gamer demographic is into these days."
Expect Roundabout, sans Georgia Cam, to be released later in 2014 on PC and Xbox One.
