    It looks like our exclusive look at No Truce With The Furies didn't stay exclusive for very long. The game appeared as part of Humble Bundle's timeslot on Twitch's PAX East broadcast today. It only got about six minutes, which was enough time for a short introduction from Humble Bundle's representative followed by four and a half minutes of gameplay footage. I believe this is the first proper gameplay footage of No Truce to be made publicly available. It shows an "Art Cop" protagonist and his sidekick attempting to acquire some paint. It's hard to describe really, so just watch:


    Looks pretty slick. I wasn't expecting that voice acting.

    You're right, one'd expect way more lively voice acting

    I did not get to play that bit. It's clearly a bit further on.

    It does sound a bit wooden, like they're reading from a paper.

    I liked Kim Kitsuragi's voice though, even if the delivery could use some work.

    Robert told me that the dominant cultural power in the world is Francophone, so you'll see French and hear French accents in contexts where you'd get American English in our world.

    Damn, when I thought I could not get more hyped by this game.. this happens..
    BTW, I liked the voice acting. If it can be improved, OK. But I would not complain if full game has it at this level. It is more than I expected from an indie game.

    The VO was done quickly, by friends. So we'd have something to show at pax -- Kim is not what I'd be happy with in the game. I like the girl though. She's a find. So we got that out of it.

    Me too.

    Also, to anyone who had watched the video, does the voice acting were done at only some points of the dialogue like PS:T did it? (only the first or maybe until second line was voice-acted)

    ^It's confirmed that the final game won't be fully voice acted.

    What's the deal with the humble bundle publishing? Does it mean the game will be included in a bundle monthly down the line?

    Are there any strategical gameplay mechanics, or is it entirely text-driven?

    Hey thanks, worked for me.
    Nice, but now that I've watched the video, it gave an impression that every dialogue lines would be voice acted.
    Just my two cents, if you're going to improve the voice acting for final release, just get rid of the voices for the second (or third) line and onward, so should be like how PS:T did it.

    And yeah, I like the girl too. Reminded me of some voice-acting in Alice: Madness Returns.

    I found it a bit strange that the PC's partner addresses him as "Art-Cop" in conversation :) Pretty intrigued to play this though.

    I'd expect that happens after you've been enraptured by blank walls a few times already. People will notice. Something a little like that happened in the bit I played; Kim remembered what I had been saying and doing and acted accordingly. It was very very cool.

    It's kinda hard to believe there's actually a game here - I guess part of me was expecting this to be little more than an art-house experiment :P Sounds good, looks good, reads good. The hype train keeps on rollin'.

    And I was expecting way less VO than there is, you guys must have a higher budget than I thought.

    This footage, without context, seems like a strange choice for promoting the game. Besides pretty graphics and extensive VO we haven't seen much and the quest itself is underwhelming to say the least. I mean, scribbling on a wall? Really? If you want to include mundane tasks I would prefer something like operating a lathe or fixing an electric engine (so technical inclination, who cares about art?) and doing something useful. It's probably one of these games you'll have to play to understand and no (p)review will do it justice. Seems to me that selling such unique game will be an extremely difficult task. So far it seems like the edgiest RPG ever created (a policeman is writing "fuck the police", brilliant, exquisite, so witty, true art™).

    BTW, will it matter what we'll write there? Because no matter what you'll write it's still vandalism (even if one would write "do not scribble on this wall").
