    There are 2 things I'm not particularly happy about...
    First are the typical UE streaming hiccups. Let's hope they won't be as bad as in Fallen Order.
    And second thing is Kena's in-game animation. In contrast to very well made cutscenes, it feels extremely stiff and running animation doesn't fit her movement speed.

    Yup I love the look of this game but it being UE you can literally see the hiccups and stutters that this awful engine has brought to gaming since UE3. I watched the video in 4K and I dropped zero frames and still could see the stutters.

    That and its Epic Store exclusive and I will never support them and their horrendous monopoly stratagies.

    Is it a timed exclusive, or a permanent one?

    All I'm asking is whether it's a timed exclusive, or not. That's it.

    Same.

    Its so weird to see people support all kinds of predatory business and capitalism but they draw the line at what launcher the game is on.

    Yes, that PC is on the lower end, but it's still above the minimum requirements.
    It has less system memory, than the recommended. But it has more vram.
    Besides, it's more powerful than a PS4, on which the game is also being released.

    Micro-hitches here and there with DX12, haven't tested DX11 yet. The game looks gorgeous in Win11 using auto-HDR.

    Ok, I may be more interested now.

    Looks good and UE stutter looks quite minimal. And they also have DX12 support too.

    Plus its only £30 here in the UK.... I may just get this to support the devs for their hard work. It does look stunning and the team is a really small team with this being their first game.

    I may watch other reviews first.

    This game had not unlocked yet here in the UK on PC when I got up this morning but I was about to play about 45 minutes of the PS5 version, which from initial impressions looks very promising even if the game itself it fairly derivative (not that is a bad thing if the influences are done well).

    The visuals are glorious and colourful, and the tribal-influenced music is surprisingly excellent, lending the game a really nice atmosphere. Not played enough to comment on the gameplay but the brief sections of combat and light puzzling were perfectly fine. Finally, I have to say that the Rot, the creatures that you collect as you explore the game, are utterly adorable and they are perfectly brought to life via their own little cutscenes. Also, try out the Photo mode!

    Can't wait to get home later and play some more on PS5, and try out the PC version.
