I see you use a lot of the same software I do. Maybe we should make an Astonishing game of our own. :biggrin:

That came out like some kind of really really nerdy pickup line. :lol

If you need an illustrator or something for a threesome let me know.  ;)

HAHA effective!
@Blob, I searched you up and you've got amazing stuff (I kinda remembered I read somewhere you made DT stuff as well). You're my new hero! ;D

Here is a huge interview granted to Your Majesty (French fan club) by the creators of the game. A lot of useful info ;)

Great interview! Many interesting and new bits of information (to me at least):

-I had assumed it was John who asked for the game to be non-violent; looks like I was wrong.
-Now I understand what 'pass and play' means. Great!
-If the company considers including 8-bit music which doesn't exist right now, I imagine the release of the game won't happen any time soon. Maybe by the end of the year?
-What was the "special bonus" you thanked Ivar for? Did he show you new images/video of the game?

By the way, Damien, I also read your recent interview with Jordan. I liked this one bit in particular - I think it's great:

"Is the music so crazy that you need to do crazy videos :) ?
Yes."


I want to thank you again for mentioning my post to John in March. It was a great first half of the year for me - new (and amazing, in my opinion) album, being mentioned to John, then taking part in a Q&A with JP/JR in Luna Park (I got to ask the first question :) ), and attending the live show later that night. It's the closest I've been to a favourite band, and this year marks a decade since I became a fan, so I've been feeling really happy.

I got access to the beta version and they will sent me another version by the end of the month.
The game seems nice even if the beta is far from being finished (no videos, no music only an instrumental version of A Better Life, no spell effects, no multiplayer, no ranking; no tutorial...) but it's easy to understand. You should see the Astonishing story as a good way to get to know the game and then play it online.

That interview was a great read. I have no interest in games, but would look forward to see how The Astonishing is represented in a game.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D

The game is not complete but the beta already includes the visuals,  the music and the story of the Astonishing : there's already the instrumental version of A Better Life, some videos broadcast during the concert (the workers working at the factory), the map available on the website, pictures of the main characters and elements from the official story. What is nice is that every unit (the guitarist, the judge...) has many written quotes from famous persons.

I'm afraid this game will come out once the hype for The Astonishing is all gone lol.

This should've been great close to release time, but now I do think it's kinda late. I hope it does well, of course.

Will probably buy this out of curiosity, but I agree this game should've been released around the release of the album itself (same goes for that book and the special/vinyl editions).

Get Bethesda to create an Open World RPG in the vein of Oblivion, you play as a player created Minstrel and illegally try to spread music... can picture the guard chasing you in the street "stop right there criminal scum" when he sees you playing your lute :lol

If you want a chance to test out the game a bit on PC, send me a note at noxon@dtnorway.com with your name and e-mail. I'll pick a handfull who get to play the game early...

It's always been a PC game as well as an iOS and Android game. All the releases I've been playing since last april has been PC.

I do have low expectations for it, there really haven't been any decent games come from bands as far as I am aware of, at this point
"The thing that kills me is all these bands that use huge words in their lyrics, 'I'm swimming in a vortex of apathy.' I'm like, 'What?' I don't walk up to a friend and go 'That's a stylin' looking vortex of apathy you've got there pal. I was swimming up a river of deceit myself."

So the game was released earlier: generally it takes some time for google play and apple store to test and review the game but it didn't take a lot of time so the game is available! And there are some contests to win some signed Images and Words vinyls.

I'm torn on whether to get this or not too. I think I'll wait to hear/read some comments from people who have played. ;)

Just went to buy it and got a warning that it was a huge file. I'll be purchasing it tonight when I'm home on Wifi. Will report back eventually.

o_O?

Luckily you can deny that without any ill effects that I can tell.

EDIT: That's a lot of instructions, I will have to come back to it later today. Will probably also have to play this on my tablet, on the phone (and I have a large Nexus 6P) it's too small.

It's awesome that they are giving out tickets to shows and aftershow passes , however what if someone won the contest during the eligible period that lived in North America and the prize was passes to a German or French show ? Don't get me wrong this is an awesome chance to win prizes for free but I think they should allow you to pick tickets to an upcoming show of your choice . What if there's only a handful of people from Germany who qualify and could actually win the tickets to that show ? I feel like lots of prizes will go unclaimed due to distance if that is the case .

Great game however , strategy and math come into play a lot in this game and it's fairly simple to learn ( I'm he worst at learning games and it took me less than 30 mins to learn strategy )

Tickets and aftershow passes are fairly easy for them to just move around. I wouldn't worry about that.

Awesome Noxon !

The game is really fun and strategic so far . I've made it to the 4th level already . I think it's easier playing as ravenskill, there seem to be a few more attack options . A well thought out game with good interaction 9/10. Plus I enjoy the instrumental parts of the astonishing during gameplay

So the game is pretty cool. I've only had about twenty minutes to mess with it, and most of that was the tutorial, but I'm digging it so far. I've played one complete game and got my ass handed to me by the AI. Seems to be a decent amount of strategy involved and feels like 21st century chess. I can't wait to actually learn all the functionality and moves as I'm basically button mashing at this point without a full understanding of the game's mechanics. But again, that's me being a noob and not the game. This seems really thought out and shows good potential.

You have the ability to play online. I haven't checked that out yet, so I'm not sure if it's random opponents only or if you have the ability to play against a friend. If you can play against specific users, I think a DTF bracket tourney would be pretty fun!.

I got it yesterday - come on it's just 3 bucks, how could you not.  Seems like an ok game.  I haven't had much time to do much past just messing around.  In fact, last night all I did was let the music play and listened to that.  How many songs are on there?  Is seems like only 3 but maybe there are more when you play it longer.
