I’ve watched the trailer to Mirror’s Edge several times now and I still think it looks very awesome. I really want this game and I’m glad they announced that they’ll also make a PC version of it. I’m planning to get a new PC in the next few weeks anyway, since mine isn’t really up to date anymore and too slow for some of the tasks I want to do with it (especially video editing).
Anyway, Mirror’s Edge looks very appealing and it has a pretty inventive game concept in which you’re basically a free runner (or parkours runner or whatever they’re called). You’re a messenger and you have to deliver messages in a very controlled/”surveillanced ” city. So the main focus of the game is running and scaling objects and finding routes rather than having to fight or shoot people. Check out the trailer, it looks awesome.
I was also pleased to hear that the game’s senior producer Owen O’Brien has been inspired by Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Serenity when making the game.
“To be very honest, I’m a big Joss Whedon fan, and a lot of the things in the story of the game came from Firefly and Serenity.” (Read the whole interview at Gamasutra.)
To be very honest, I’m a big Joss Whedon fan, too.
