First "Lost - The Videogame" trailer


Recommended Posts

FINALLY some footage of the game! So stoked!

It looks like they are using Cryengine 1, or more specifically Ubisoft's modified and adapted version, optimized for consoles. I'm wondering what else they added under the hood, maybe in conjunction for use in FarCry2?

I am more interested to hear some more infos on the gameplay though, I hope it won't be your average, linear, action adventure with movie/tv show license.

I'm a Lost fan and this is a game I really want to play. The trailer looks like Ubisoft is doing an effort to capture the Lost atmosphere, at least graphics are really good. Seems like CE1 on steroids is enough in there days, but no idea how this one will play. I'm sure it's about making missions like go somewhere and find whatever, etc :-D

Is Lost really worth watching? :?

Absolutely without a doubt yes.

I wasn't particularly impressed by the trailer, but it doesn't look terrible either, which I guess is something. I quite liked the walking and running animations - they looked quite full of character and the run looked like he was genuinely putting in effort. Most game characters just look like they're jogging.

It's not exactly true to the series, more happened in that trailer than the entire second series. To be honest you only really need two buttons, one labelled "WALT" and the other “next enigmatic plot twist,” Of course, you have to wait (or alternatively, shout "WALT") for 4 goddamn hours for your "next plot twist" gauge to fill, after which your treated to an anticlimactic cut scene with lots of foreshadowing to muse over while you wait for the gauge to fill again.

Ideally this will repeats infinitely on some fractal procedural content system, which you can either lap up – causing you to explain complex theoretical theories to your friends you know won’t be true because they do crazy things like make logical sense or conclude a storyline - or, alternatively, you can smash the CD for being the dullest, over hyped piece of crap out there and marvel at how the masses are entertained by this even though they’re fully aware they’re stringing it out as much as possible and everyone’s signing contracts for a billion more series.

I guess I won't watch it then. :-D

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.

      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
