Well done Mr Wang.

Make sure you join the GHZ discord before this place disappears into the ether.

Just got up to Isle 3 now. Really enjoying it and there's some lovely little touches scattered about.

Anyone completed the second Run & Gun level?

I've had a very brief play but I loved it.


Managed to complete the first boss and buy a couple of things from Porky. I then proceeded to replay the first boss several times to try and improve my score and parry timing. I've already found that the dash needed to move to RB. Trying to reach for Y with X pressed down wasn't intuitive.


I'm looking forward to returning to the game.


If anyone is interested in the design philosophy there's an interesting talk here from on of the artists.


In that talk there's a reference to this scene from a Betty Boop cartoon. Specifically when the Koko the Clown's (as a ghost) head separates from his body into a bottle of spirits and the body shots the tipple. There's really a nothing off the table logic of these cartoons. It should play at the right time at 4m 11s. That's Cab Colloway if you're curious (He does the Minnie the Moocher number near the end of Blues Brothers)

I've had a small crack at the very first zone and like what I see already. Can't wait to see what they've done.

1. Ori and The Blind Forest: Definitive Edition - End credits rolled the other day but I've still got the 2 added areas and some mopping up to do. This was a sublime gaming experience.

Sounds like a managed decline. Are they winding the firm up?


Whereabouts in the UK are you Randy? I know an IT recruiter who's a bit more switched on I could put you in touch with. If nothing it's chat and some advice?

Quick update from me.


I'll be Dad in December and I just bought this place with my in-laws as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Wow Boog. Impressive.


One thing I can keep hearing about this sort of stuff is the 'black' issue, seeing as you can't project black, things won't look as solid as sometimes portrayed. What's your take on it?

You can also vote for the game you want to see get BC. Which means you all want to vote for this obviously!
