[i]come back[/i] ...thread, because it's time for a content bump! [url=http://dear-esther.com/?p=389]Dear Esther has entered closed beta[/url]! And get a look at this beauty.

"Good god..."
I wanted to play this now, but I rather wait for the remake
Patiently awaiting another "I heard this game looks bad" comment in the thread, despite awesome content being very obviously present. I'm so glad that they're going all out with the soundtrack this time. It'll be wonderful to experience Dear Esther with a full orchestra backing the visuals.
Looks like Skyrim :v:
Maybe I'll appreciate it more this time around, I thought the first one was kinda trite and uninteresting.

Judging by the lates and dumb, I can assume we still need to pay. That's still bullshit. I mean, no one made him remake the damn thing, it was his idea. Trying to sell your hobby that you do for your own benefit is bullshit. I know what you're going to say, "WAT ABOOT GAME DEVELOPERZ?". Well, game developers make shit not as a hobby, but as a fucking job. They get paid to do it because other people want them to make something, not because they want to make it. In my opinion, all mods should be free. I'm pirating this and I hope the developer knows that. [highlight](User was banned for this post ("Bragging about pirating." - postal))[/highlight]

Therefore it is a job and by your logic no indie developers should be paid, right? after all they are making games from their own ideas and not because some publisher is telling them to
speaking of paying (I haven't kept up with DE), is this just new assets but the same basic premise or was stuff added like a director's cut?

I haven’t played the original,should I wait for the commercial release? Will playing the original mod completely spoil it for me? A. I think this is something you must decide for yourself. It’s a remake after all,but with a ton of additional visuals,details and information added in. Think of it as a Director’s Cut.[/quote] Yeah probably, apart from visuals and audio, I think there may be some new shit regarding story The only thing they've shown off is mostly the maps, cause Briscoe is such a fucking boss mapper. They have a pretty hard out team too [url]http://dear-esther.com/?page_id=2[/url] I would say having a few professionals would justify a price tag of something
The feeling and atmosphere was awesome. Imagine it like a digital interactive painting. That lone distant flashing light in the fog alone was worth it.
I wasn't going to buy this at first, I'm not sure why... Anyhow I've come to my senses and decided I'll take the plunge and dig into my wallet. This pretty much sealed the deal for me: [url]http://www.dear-esther.com/DEostExcerpt.mp3[/url]

I was wondering when this thread would come back up. Seriously looking forward to Feb 14.

Looks incredible! Just wondering how much it will cost ...
This cannot be released soon enough. [QUOTE=ZitaX;34275586]Looks incredible! Just wondering how much it will cost ...[/QUOTE] $9.99/£6.49
i might've played this if my attention span didn't last 2 minutes at best
Here's the Sheet Music: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?pl77wyv2in4d0[/url] Feel free to add this to the OP
That was one of the best trailers I have ever seen. And that was one of the best musical pieces I have ever heard. I am buying seven copies of this game.
Weird how at the beginning of this thread, people were talking about how bad this mod was, and now people are saying it's really great. I personally thought that this mod was amazing. Even if I've played the original, I'll happily buy this new version of it.
