What do you guys think of Eversion ?

180c98 No.14646866

It was pretty neat, a great concept well realized, but had its moments of replacing challenge by pixel perfect frustration. Some part of me thinks it could be made into a full game, but the rest thinks it would probably overstay its welcome.

fucking impossible to find a pirate version of HD that isn't just the original.


e35d64 No.14647961

Original was unique while still being a decent platformer. The one sold for money doesn't really add much that's worth it.

Good stuff

It's been years since I've played it, but I swear I remember the final stage being different, or that there's another ending added or something.

It defeats its own purpose.

It is supposed to shock player with drastic and unexpected change of tone, but its only defining feature that made it somewhat known is said change of tone in the first place, making it no longer unexpected.

Same with undertale really - it's only known for its meta narrative, which supposed to be surprise but since it sells the game there is no surprise.

My point is if the game can't stand on its own merits, such as gameplay or production values, then its turns and twists amount to nothing, there is no value in them.

Compare to Cave Story that has cutesy appearance but also top notch gameplay and fine tuned difficulty curve, making it cult classic hailed as one of the best platformers, not as one of those pretentious "it was grimdark all along" pieces of shit like eversion or undertale.

>"Citizen Kane is supposed to shock the viewer with drastic and unexpected change of tone from the reveal"

I mean it's not that deep but don't go around being a half assed critic

An average platformer with a fun horror gimmick. It's free so you can't fault it too hard for lacking depth or being short.

Kinda reminds me of pic-related with how it's got the contrasting cutesy and gorey aesthetics going-on.


e35d64 No.14651355

>>14651238

Except, even without the twist, Eversion is still a competent platformer with some interesting puzzle mechanics. The way the game world transforms as you evert deeper and deeper is also noteworthy, from both a gameplay and artistic sense. What starts as simple level decoration becomes tangible objects, and then they become outright dangerous obstacles. Blocks that start out as solid obstacles become destructible. Enemies start mobile, transition to completely static, only to become even more dangerous than how they started. Even when you know the twist, there's still merit in seeing how the twist is carried out, and it still equals a fun little platformer.

Did you not bother to read the rest?

>>14651355

Why platformer community doesn't care about it then? You can see people putting autistic amounts of hours in Cave Story, meat boy or Dust Force, but not Eversion.

>>14651383

Those games are games where you can go real fast and master their nooks and crannies. Also and I can't speak for Meat Boy here, Dustforce and Cave Story are pretty fucking fun.

You can go fast in freedom planet and sanic mania as well, but nobody gives a shit about those games.

Sonicfagns do I think. I don't think Dustforce is that popular though.

According to steamspy

>Dustforce

Sounds alive enough for what it is tbh.

I thought steamspy is kill?

>Why platformer community doesn't care about it then?

You do realize this is basically just argumentum ad populum, right? Just because something doesn't get a lot of attention, doesn't mean it lacks merit.

>>14651484

Steam simply changed the default settings, of who can see your library and activity, from public to private. So, now, Steamspy can only see the activity of those who deliberately make the choice to let anyone see it.

The thrisd hidden ending was neat.

It's okay outside of that, I feel like the gimmick isn't actually used enough and it's rarely used in a non "room full of 1 way switch" way, there's better games for free out there.

Kekcroc was better.

I find this kinda hard to take at face value because eversion had some a bit of thought and creativity put into it, and we all know SJWs aren't capable of either. I wanna say they were just the sprite artist and took full credit or something.

>>14651383

Probably has something to do with the fact that version takes all of 2 hours to beat and has no replay value.

>>14651609

No, he is the sole developer, but you are kind of right. Back in 2009, when the game was developed, he wasn't a full fledged SJW (I don't think anyone in video games was). He gradually drank the kool-aid and became progressively pozzed after moving to the UK, though.

t. I know Zara from way back, he is from my hue hometown
