Called 'Anxiety', but don't worry

It also has a new trailer, which you can watch below. The video is titled 'Anxiety', so you might want a brown paper bag handy to breathe into if it lives up to its name.

Akward fits that trailer in a nutshell. Wasn't IGN raving about the Dream Trigger 3D demo a couple of months ago? They said it was definitly one of the future 3DS releases to keep an eye on...If anything the music sounds pretty sweet, and it's got some pretty trippy potential with 3D.

yea didnt learn owt from the trailer hope its deeper than it looks but with the 3d aswell should be good

It sort of looks like a Virtual Boy game with an ugly color scheme. I almost wish they'd gone with all-red for the full retro effect.

looks like a visualizer... i just might pick this up because there really isnt all that much this month, besides the eshop...

Whats with all the hate? Well, it's a 2D shooter, so it's not supposed to be that popular. Just leave us cool kids to enjoy our trippy game. You're not supposed to be able to tell what's going on because that's what makes us shooter fans feel like we're better than you.

The screen shots make this look fun but it looks really boring in the video. I might have to wait for a review of this before buying unless they release a more exciting trailer. >.<



Samholy said:

the video was.... broken. this is not what will sell their product.
the screenshots look promising. the video isnt much dynamic.

ill see if my retailer has a demo of it or something, because i wont buy some kind of interactive vizualiser for 40$.

It reminds me of Rez a lot, and I LOVED Rez. When music is played via gaming, the experience can be immersive like nothing else, as shown to the unwashed masses with the Bit.Trip series. This is one I am looking forward to...but I have to agree that the video doesn't make it look that great. That said, Okamiden didn't look so hot in one vid demo I saw showing a boss fight, but I love it more than any other game I have for my 3DS.

And so everyone jumps to conclusions. I bet nobody even noticed all the bullets in the video.

well, I got it,many have cmplained about the depth or challenge. I didn't find thier gripes valid. I like the game and it provides enough of a challewnge for me. I must say I hate the method they chose of choosing the levels. The level chooser is gimmicky but serves it's purpose. The play feels a bit like 'Tempest' Meets 'Big Bang Mini' + 'Space Invaders Extreme' in 3D. It is a bullet hell to be certain. Their instructions could be a bit better written. I had to seek instructions online to really get the idea of how it's played.
