Just finished a scene in The Underworld's Cello that actually made me tear up a bit. I don't want to toot my own horn, but I'm liking this scenario.

Screw you, Roger Ebert. Video games ARE art. Like movies, they have the potential to make you think, make you cry, make you laugh, and make you feel.

And made all the more emotional due to the labor to produce this thing, I hope this is a notable event in your life, to see this game/art come to be.

It will be. It'll be the start of my career as a game developer.

Well I think they should be, but sadly many especially bigger and older franchises have left the realm of art and became cheap reproductions for cash grabs, and I see
many decisions made in game design, where money overruled artistic decisions. Like adding certain mechanics only to allow DLCs or stretch a a story with obvious filler
to reach a certain time mark instead of let it end where it was supposed to be.

But then again, the same is true for film, literature, music and every other form of art these days.

All that matters is the heart put into the creation. So far, I've poured my heart into this, and people have noticed enough to stick with me for these years towards completion.

Thanks, everybody, BTW!

what I love about games are, not just the gameplay but the story and I remember the first game to ever made me cry! It was "Bioshock". I'm a really touchy person and I can't wait for this scene :)

Oh, man. People rag on the good ending of Bioshock for being a bit of a cop-out, but that scene made me cry. You gave up your own voice box (oh, and an underwater cities and all its secrets, I guess. :/ ) for those girls and repay you for it 1000 fold by being there for you.

It's Vinyl's possible Death Scene? I have a feeling it is.
And if not, maybe it has something to do with the zombie kid.

There are many "characters" introduced within  the small demo alone and with the game being about zombies
and some evil? antagonists there is enough of room for tragic stories, that I don't think we would hit it with guessing.

True, but the fact that I DO have people guessing gives the story a tad more merit? :P

Really? Wow. Thank you. I still got a bit to add to the game, but I feel I'm at the home stretch.

That's really cool ^^ It's always great to see a video game that can drive some powerful emotion. I very much agree that Video Games are works of art.

Video games are a new form of art.
Who can say Assassins Creed, The Last of Us or Far Cry has no argument at all?

Keep doing what you like. Keep doing art.

I suppose there are some people that are unwilling to let go of one art form for another. Granted, there are some video games that would be too tasteless to call art, e.g. Hatred. But, in this day and age, people need to realize that programming in itself can be an art form, as it's a creation that's as similar to a sculpture or abstract art.
