As if coming out of hibernation, a new gameplay trailer has been released for the surreal, silhouette-style indie title Feist. It showcases the game’s fuzzy little protagonist as he hops through a forest, avoiding the paw-swipes of much larger vicious, yet still fuzzy creatures. Developer Filthy Grip still hasn’t announced a firm release date and it looks like Feist will only be featured for Mac and PC – but the smart money says it’ll quickly find its way onto consoles if it earns even a ripple of interest. And it should because it looks wonderful.
We’re really not sure what is going on with all of these artsy, silhouette indie games coming out of the woodwork all of a sudden (Limbo, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, etc). It’s as if all these developers looked at Patapon and said “Oooh, yeah – that!” In all honesty, though, we love that look - when each game looks like a living breathing work of art, it doesn’t leave us much room to complain.
