Any way disable the "trippy" effects?
i want to try this game but those acid effects (flashing colours, swaying screen) make me sick when i watch gameplay. is there any way to disable these?

Unfortunately not as it stands, there have been a number of complaints regarding the same thing so hopefully some options will materialize in the future.

And kill the style of the game... ?
Please, no. Not even optional, since a lot of atmosphere would just go out the window.
I think a refund would be perfectly fine (but hard to do probably).

the style of the game does not matter when that style makes me sick. i want to play the game and not get a headache from just looking at it for 30 seconds.

As Ap2000 said, disabling the effects would take away the style and therefor ruin the spirit of the game.

It's like playing Limbo or any game with an aesthetic style. It's what makes games unique.

It does matter in terms of how you'd perceive the game.
You might as well just play Minesweeper if you take away all the special aspects about this game.

Everybody in this thread needs to stop being a hipster.

Of course the "trippy" effects add much to the game's style, but they're making this fellow feel ill. He should be allowed to disable them if he wants to experience the game's other elements without also mating with a toilet bowl. I'm quite sure that much of the game's atmosphere will remain as long as the music stays, but this is beside the point. The visceral gameplay and the story also remain.

He's asking for an option to turn it off. The key word here is OPTION. That means it'd be up to the player to decide, "Do I keep the trippy special effects or do I turn them off?" No one is removing it for those who still want it.

I'll never understand the gamer mentality of "This is how I play it, so everyone needs to play it the same way or stop playing!" There's a reason options menus exist and that's for customization. Without that we might as well go back to the days when the only option we had was to "press start" or turn off the game entirely.

I couldn't agree more, I think that those who are susceptible to motion sickness when playing should be able to experience it comfortably. Inevitably the artistic intent of the game would be mitigated, but there is nothing to stop you playing the game as it was intended if you don't suffer any problems with the game's visuals.
