Someone like Inafune, who is someone well known in the industry and that has a track record of actually delivering, gets a pass on this. At the end of the day, these guys put their reputation on the line on KS, which is quite different from a random guy no one heard about posting up a game and asking for game.

@ Mister Chippy Inafune, the guy behind Mighty No. 9 got in front of a camera, with no gameplay, only promises and him talking about his career, and got $4 million on Kickstarter, and was pretty much Greenlit on here within' a day. No gameplay trailer, just a few concept art designs tossed on the page.

You should be happy the guy has a trailer at all.

Honestly though, the trailer was so dark, I couldn't see shit. I understand that's supposed to be one of the concepts in the game, realistic darkness, but sheesh. Have the guy walking around with a torch or something for a bit. The ideas you have listed sound cool, but show us a bit of that and how it works in game. That and I'd have to see more then what you've shown to give it a "Yes", right now.

Ok, so I watched the trailer, and after a few minutes you almost got to some gameplay. You then skipped said gameplay.

If you don't show me something I assume it either sucks, doesn't work, or simply doesn't exist yet.

Show me some gameplay, or tell me where I can see some, and then I'll vote on it. Not before, not after.

Also, you should REALLY put an actual gameplay trailer up here. No matter how cool your backstory is, or what features you have planned, none of that matters if people can't see that there's actually an interesting game there to make them work.

Quite certain this game already came out. Getting 7.5s

The informations here on Steam about the game are a bit lacking in terms of details. But visiting their homepage gives you more informations and reviews and stuff.

The idea of navigating through a very dark area - mostly relying on sounds - is rather nice!
This has the potential to become a really good game.

Dark and boring I'll pass

Trailers are probably the best time to show "treats" to get people excited about your game. I'm sorry but the current trailer is boring and uninspiring! What is gameplay like?

So its been almost half a year since I first stumbled across this, and you still wont show anything about how the game plays out. "I'm actually going to skip past this" is code for "we haven't actually made that part of the game" & "this game mechanic sucks so much we're afraid to show you." I don't know what kind of games you're used to playing, but most of us don't buy games because we want to uncover the mystery of whether it's actually a game or not.
