    Seriously, the 15 min level I got to play ant nVision was fecking awesome fun. It's way easier to maintain speed with a mouse to aim than it is on the console.

    just remap all the buttons to a comfortable spot on the keyboard. thats what i do for EVERY game on pc since my fingers are too big for typical "WASD" configs.

    Joe,
    Looking closely, the game's environments have rather simple surfaces--you can thank the functional simplicity of our architecture for that. Lots of flat walls, ramps, windows, boxes--typical platformer criteria-- but there are a few clever tricks here and there. There doesn't seem to be any high-resolution material (shaders, textures, sprites), either, since moving through the game looks a little too fast for them to play their role. Hard edges in the environment--such as shacks, crates, and buildings--are subdued with mute, drab colours and unobvious texture edges. I think the game's real visual asset is their lighting engine, which makes a drab storage room into a real eye-popping scene using only light-on-material properties and just low-res shadows. I think it's brilliant that the game claims to run on such dated components, but there's real cleverness behind their visual effects to make it a reality.
