 Mooched from Mundy @resetera, he did some awesome gifs.

I feel like this game has gone under the radar.
Honestly I like the art style, and platforming + puzzle solveing looks decent.

Anyone else remembered this one? or is it destined to just go forgotten (poor sales)?

This games art style is amazing. If gameplay holds up well is yet to be seen, but the art style is without question awesome.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

No physical release? Hmm...



This game is so fresh, colourful and intriguing. It also has a VR mode which further increases its value.
I will definitely be pre ordering it.
Hopefully the $30 price point will attract more people to try it out themselves.

There should be physical versions too, afaik.
I actually got curious and googled it (concrete genie + physical), theres atleast box art for it.

^ yep, price is without a doubt something to attract sales, probably scared they ll get overshadowed by other games without it.

Something like Death Stranding... people wont just "forget" it, come release date.
Concrete genie, hasnt gotten that much attention (imo).
Probably hopeing the price gets people to give it a try.

Love the art style. I'll keep an eye out for sure.



Was looking forward to this first time I saw it, why is it priced so low though, hopefully this won't turn out to be a short game.

I don't think a game being short is inherently bad, just like a game being long isn't inherently good. Most action games are "short" in the perspective of this generation of titles, and that's the best genre of games by far.

Not saying short games are bad, I just don't like games to end up short especially if I feel like I'm gonna enjoy playing it.

Not my genre, but from what I see, I can say both its style and gameplay look original. It impresses me less than LittleBigPlanet (that despite not being my genre, I actually played with the elder son of two friends after a Xmas lunch at them, quite amusing, I even looked for tips and the likes on the net for him, as his parents, not being gamers, despite using the net, were almost clueless about helping their children on such issues) and Patapon, but more than Knack.
