Day one if Willo, Arthur, Mavis and Evil Edna turn up in this.

| (•_•)| S: This is the best date I've been on since my last date. PB: This is not a date.
S: Neither was the last one. It was a robbery. M: Really? S: Yeah. She stole my heart. And my crown. (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)

No mention of a date, I assume? Next year then. This looks incredible, though.

And you'll probably wait until 2019 to play it.

It was only 7 months later. How dare you day I would wait a year to play it.

Will be interesting to see how they handle the story elements. Will Ori start the game fully powered up? Highly unlikely, but how will they justify it?

I really hope this makes it over to Switch at some point.

I’m sure it won’t be soon but any time in the future would be great.

The collectors edition is £40 & exclusive to Game in the UK - https://www.game.co.uk/en/ori-and-the-w ... ve-2706607

Dev has been posting in the resetera reveal thread - https://www.resetera.com/threads/game-a ... ed.158971/

Also, the Collectors Edition IS limited, so it'll probably be sold out very quickly. If anyone lives in Vienna or sees me at Gamescom or E3 at some point, I'd gladly sign the Box for you :) We specifically designed a classy, beautiful black box and asked Microsoft to only use high quality materials, which is why there's a 20$ gap between the normal edition and this one, but I think collectors will deem it worthy, I certainly would :) Gareth's Piano Collection Soundtrack CD is also exclusive in that box and the hard-cover ArtBook that's in it also looks super nice. We worked together with Future Press on it for the past few months, it contains tons of artwork that was created by Moon over the past 4 years... I think the value for the box will quickly go up instead of down due to the limited availability.


I think we feel pretty confident internally that it'll be one of the strongest games out next year - We've been putting years of hard work into Will of the Wisps and are polishing like crazy still. We're not too afraid of any month, what matters is that when we launch, you'll be able to sit down and feel like you're playing something truly special - that's what we want to deliver :)

Yeah, it's been a long road, but we're pretty happy with where we are right now and there's obviously more stuff being worked on in the background that's already shaping up super nicely. When Blind Forest shipped, we were still a crafty, smaller indie dev, but by now we're becoming more and more of a powerhouse and we'll soft-announce something soon that should clarify that we're not messing around and are going to compete at the highest level. It's gonna be fun :D

Btw, with combat, it's not just about looks. This time around we hired Formosa to do all the sound effects for Ori. They worked on stuff like Mad Max, John Wick, Frozen, etc. and in games they were responsible for the SFX in God of War, Halo and the likes. It's super important that the sound effects overall are super satisfying, that contributes a lot to the whole experience of making combat and platforming feel super satisfying :)

I hope people will notice the new lighting engine and Animation is also a big step up from what we were able to accomplish with Ori and the Blind Forest. We since hired some of the best keyframe animators in the industry (I honestly hate the trend that everything out there in games is Motion Capture, that always just results in wooden animations in my opinion... so our goal is always to really hone Keyframe Animation and let our Animators be the artists they are), we upped the animations to 60fps and added a ton more animations for every move, so everything feels a lot more fluid now. I love the storm shot in the trailer where Ori gets separated from Ku, the animation there is top notch :)

Internally we're also pitching around the idea of maybe making a version of Will of the Wisps that supports 120hz on the Xbox Series X, but that'll be up to Microsoft to decide, so feel free to tweet Phil about that :D I think it'd be neat if Ori would be one of the first games to ring in the new era of console games supporting a higher refresh rate than 60hz. A lot of TVs out there already support 120hz and by the time the XSX launches, that'll be even more commonplace, so people should have content that makes use of that new tech :)
