roc6783: ///My friends used to marvel over the jump in graphics from FF6 to FF7, while I thought the 3D stuff just looked goofy. I am not trying to be a video game art hipster or anything, I just like the "drawn" style better.


I pretty much gave up on FF after the characters became this...

As a 30 something I can play a cartoon stylized game without feeling a sense of feeling "too old for this shiat", but once I detect even sniff of that teen angsty/emo vibe I'm out.

DarkPascual: Visually speaking, looks like something that Studio Ghibli could do... I like it.


Or, you know, did do.

Hitomi Tanaka's Paperweights: So how do we get them to produce a Grave of the Fireflies RPG?


Play the Walking Dead iOS game.

Most of the decisions in that game come down to "who would you like to see suffer this time?"

Doogles4221: Mentalpatient87: I don't get it.

This doesn't look charming, it just looks Japanese. Like every other overly cutesy Japanese fiction that involves spirits or demons or whatever. What sets this apart?

Studio Ghibli.
They make some of the best animated movies from Japan for the last 20 or so years, and helped set the "Japanese" look. Some of their movies include "My neighbor Toronto," "Spirited Away," "Nazacca"

Don't forget Grave of Fireflies. The classic movie that everyone should see exactly once.


If you really want the best experience, watch it while hopped up on a cocktail of vodka and barbituates.

JesusJuice: Why do Asians draw eyes all huge? It's farking weird. They'd look like genetic freaks in the real world and they look like genetic freaks in your crazy nonsensical cartoons.


Long story short, Osamu Tezuka, considered father of the manga, drew heavy influence from Disney cartoons and started to draw with big expressive, eyes, and established the trend.

As a developer, I can say, that game looks pretty as hell.

May be the best use of "cartoon style" cell shading I have seen to date.
