I also heard some XCOM (the original) bleeps (sound assets) in the trailer which made me all nostalgic. Definitely following that one with keen interest.

Not so sure on the platformer. It doesn’t really seem to bring anything new at all? I guess the fact it’s free is a redeeming feature but beyond serving as a flash or even a mobile game I don’t see any redeeming features whatsoever.

Krautscape looks a tad gimmicky, rather than truly innovative and fun. I can’t see it work or be fun to play for a prolonged period of time and I’m quite keen on racers. It’s one of these games where you’ve seen it all after half an hour (if that) and never get back to it, at least that’s my feeling. Unless they really polish it – it needs a LOT of work graphically and in sound to convince me.

Normally I’m very forgiving on both aspects but in this genre you simply can’t be. It has to look and feel fast, colourful and awesome for people to really get stuck in.
