ZOMG i have to play this game

3D Dot Game Heroes… Looks… Beautiful…

The charming fashion in which 3D Dot Game Heroes, which will be released May 11, re-creates retro characters and settings is itself something of a game-changer. The chunky heroes, monsters and landscape here look as if they’re constructed out of tiny, individual blocks. We see them from an angle, rather than the traditional top-down view of old-school games.

Our view of the game is also presented with a very narrow depth of field, so that trees and mountains in the distance rapidly drop out of focus. This effect gives the game a heightened sense of realism — as if we’re playing a videogame in a tiny diorama constructed out of physical chunks of matter.

Oh, and watch this:
