• Attention All Comstar Customers, Due to unexpected interference by suspected Word of Blake operatives, the HPG systems update was *not* successful. No data was lost due to our careful and extensive backups; however, we will need to try again next weekend. Sincerely, Comstar Precentor Dune

Anyways about a week ago this trailer dropped and I figured I ought to share it with people here in case they haven't seen it. The game definitely looks interesting and ambitious. Anyways, I am posting this with scant commentary (I'll share my opinions if this thread picks up), so I'll let the batshit insanity speak for itself.

The trailer is pretty funny. I think they missed the obvious opportunity to fit in harvesting Pokemon for their organs or body parts joke somewhere in there. We do know that Pokemon are canonically eaten in the setting, like Slowpoke tails or Magikarp, so why not depict that? Could also do the Kenshi thing of grinding up Pokemon for their hides.

Otherwise, the game looks trashy.

Probably because it is.

The developers have another unfinished MMO survival game they created called Craftopia that's currently unfinished... and they just hired four more developers to work on making Palworld.

I would not count on the game being very deep.
Neither would I, but it might be a diamond in the rough. Either they are going to bottle lightning ala Valheim, make a passable game that serves its purpose, or just be more Indie shovelware.

I am going to post any updates or new info that I stumble upon as things develop, because I do think it has potential even though as I said I share the same reservations as people here.

New trailer for Palworld is out



In the first trailer, it seemed like you would get to enslave Pokemon and work them in sweat shops, but this trailer seems to make the slavers out to be enemy NPCs you fight, which is disappointing. Nonetheless cautiously optimistic about this game.

Also, yay Pokemon eating Pokemon!

This... actually reminds me more of Monster Rancher where you did indeed use your monsters for forced labor and their short lifespan was cooked into the games to encourage you to constantly replace them as they wore out. The one doggo getting a belly rub even looks a lot like Tiger of the Wind.
