My personal hype-o-meter:

1. The Walking Dead Season 2
2. Lilly Looking Through
3. Broken Age
4. Memoria (Daedalic Entertainment)
5. Dreamfall Chapters
6. Columbus 4 (Animation Arts)
7. Kentucky Route Zero: act 2
8. The Wolf Among Us
9. The Realm (Atomhawk / Lantern)
10. Hero-U (Lori & Corey Cole)

I tried to choose stuff that’s different in some way:
1. for the originals refreshing take on adventures. want more!
2. beautiful art, animation and unique goggles mechanic
3. for its distinct art style and what it represents in the industry
4. daedalic’s track record, not many medieval adventures lately, trailer looks amazing.
5. the previous was ground breaking in beauty, motion capturing and facial expressions, evolution of adventures into “interactive story” for a wider audience.
6. their “lost horizon” is the most beautiful game ever. plot & game mechanics of Columbus 4 are interesting.
7. experimental awe, atmosphere, unique use of sound! want more!
8. another comic adoption from the same team? yes please!
9. it just looks beautiful
10. their original rpg/adventure hybrid hasn’t been beaten, and this one brings an original mix to that concept.

Please consider some of these for the next list Smile

I think its kinda funny lsl1 reloaded isnt even listed on the hype lol.. then again, its something we’ve all played for sure so I guess it’s not quite as exciting as the rest of these..

I’m personally most excited for dreamfall chapters, spaceventure, quest for infamy, mage’s initiation, broken age and hero-u.
