"Below is an adventure game viewed from a top down perspective. You are a tiny warrior exploring the depths of a remote island. The game is about exploration, though that goal is contingent upon the character's survival in a world where there is brutal combat and permanent death."

If I was excited for the release of Below, I am now even more excited-er(I realize that is not, in fact a word). At first I didn't quite understand why the game featured the main character being so small, but seeing the gameplay I see now how it works. Zooming so far out allows more scenery on the screen as well as gives the designers the ability to make for some HUGE boss fights. That and it's a really unique concept.

Below is a XBox exclusive(for now) but will also ship on Steam. No word on the Steam platforms, but when we know more i'll report back.

That's beautiful. And Jim Guthrie is a major selling point for me.

It took a bit for me to realize what was going on, not used to the extreme top down view, but that looks quite entertaining. I really need to start suckering up to some friends with Xbox Ones. They seem to be coming out with some worthwhile games.

Yeah it is extreme, isn't it? That took me a second too. I thought it was going to zoom in but... yeah I can get behind that. I don't think I'll ever want to play it on my TV though, with that kind of view, I want it on my PC. Soon, I hope.
