I came across this beautiful game and i thought i had to share it with you all.

http://thatcloudgame.com/game.htm

download the game, everything about it is art. Its so nice to see that there are still developers who are not falling into the trap of just showing off eye candy!

It's a really great game. All the creators are friends of mine and Bonedaddy's from our time at USC . . . everybody should check it out.

man, that was awesome. what a great idea. i still haven't gotten around to working with the clouds. i'm get too distracted with just flying around, but i love it! the music is awesome. i hope they keep updating this with more levels and different terrain.

everyone should check this out. it's pretty relaxing.

im totally in love with this game, I have spent 40 pounds on worst games than this. This has the art style of makato shinkai and the gaming genius of shigeru miyamoto. I really wish the best for these guys.

Can you guys download it? It seems the download links on that site all are dead?

The torrent link is good. Speedy download for me.

Hats off to the cloud team. I absolutely loved it. Collecting clouds and making it rain was great fun. SO was just soaring around over the terrain and through the city.

I see a development deal being struck here. Could be one hell of a fantastic thing too.

Although its nice and free. But they obviously did it because they would like to make a living at it.

Fingers crossed for you.

Servers are down.

What kind of game it is anyways? The screenshots are not too descriptive.

Think Half-Life2 only with no violence, Gordon can fly, and there's less normal mapping.

It's surprisingly entertaining!

what a fantastic game! i once had a partially completed film concept which was heavily engraved in my heart which was about clouds. This game really harmonises with me. I can just imagine the possibilities visually with this game. The music is brilliant!

That's the bittorrent file. Now open that with a bit torrent client, and it will begin the download.

But I thought graphics didn't matter?? (atleast according to your post about the lame duck Revolution). :twisted:
:D
By the way, I am just teasing... I am actually trying to download it now. More than a little intriques by all the commotion.

lol lol lol, u will soon see it isnt the graphics that are beautiful, it is the whole art direction of the game. I really need to stop playing this game and get on with my assignments....

Meh.

I just tried it real quick before and didn't "get it" - as to what you are supposed to be doing. I'll try it out tonight when I have some more time.


laureato di arte - I thought the graphics were a little too pixelated and there wasn't enough specular highlights in the character. Also the illusion of wind and other physics was sub-par. The textures were fairly flat and the water effects were unconvincing. :D
