Cool, although I see no price mentioned Am I the only one that found that new video a little underwhelming - it just doesn't look as fast paced or fun after watching that as it had previously - hope I'm wrong.

I also hope that isn't the music - the music on the very first video the dev released made it difficult for any original music to match that fun track which seemed to fit the game perfectly (although obviously that was a copyrighted track so unless they were prepared to pay moolah to license it, it was never going to be included.)

I think you are a victim of fast-paced trailer cutting
This new video looks exactly like what I am expecting.
Lost Vikings meets Loco Roco. Fantastic. And also the music is again very cool.
I just don't want to wait 3 weeks... but they do it this way to get a high price on this... because then, we will all be in a christmas mood, where money doesn't matter that much and where we are willing to pay more...
clever bastards...

I think you're right about being a victim of fast-paced trailer cutting I confess!

Still not keen on the music tho but can't wait for it to be released. Are people really willing to pay for something for themselves at Christmas? I'd of thought the opposite was true!
