PAX East 2011: Video Interview of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

I caught up with Shane Bettenhausen of UTV Ignition Games at PAX East last week and had a chance to talk to him a little bit about El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. The game caught my eye because it’s one of those games coming out that seems to be really different from the usual run and gun. I must admit that I am a little surprised that this is the first time I have even heard of the game; I am not saying that I know everything and anything about games, but since I do write on this blog, I try to stay on top of things. After running a search on the game in Google, I noticed that there was news of it going all the way back to mid 2010. It’s not ages ago, but it seems like news for this game has been floating out there for some time now; a little disappointing that we haven’t posted anything about it here. Hit the jump to see what this game is all about:

    The art in this game reminds me of one of my all time favorite games “Out of this World”. That game is complete bad ass!

    Interesting concept, interesting art style, interesting story.

    But… gameplay seems odd.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought that at first…I was trying to figure out how the song related to the game and vice versa…

    I think it looks awesome but 13 hours isn’t a long game.
