Penny's Big Breakaway (From the developers of Sonic Mania)

Recommended Posts

 

Can't say that I expected Evening Star's first game to be a 3D platformer, but I am definitely in for this! :D

I trust the developer's portfolio, so I'm highly intrigued by this. The art direction is certainly promising (cute penguins make any game better)

Actually, you know what this reminds me of? Dynamite Headdy. Not because of anything in particular, just the general vibes.

Agreed totally.  Feels like the kind of game that Treasure would’ve made if they were still around :)

Yes please! Thank you very much! :D

Looks to be 30FPS on Switch? In which case? PC it is.

Game is out now, and... yup, apparantly it is indeed 30FPS on Switch; while it's 60-120FPS on everything else.

Real shame, but that basically makes the Switch version a non-starter unfortunately.  Hopefully it gets an enhanced version when Switch 2 rolls around.

Will be getting this on Friday on PC when I get paid :)

The colours are just so… vibrant!  That’s a shame the Switch version sounds to perform lesser to the others.  I am really interested in this though, with the developer’s reputation. I may hold off until I’ve heard some reviews from some of you fine people as well as the wider press (that plus my huge backlog!).

Skimmed through an influencer video of this (doubt it was the Switch version). They seemed positive about it but that'll be their schtick so I'm taking it with a generous pinch of salt. Apparently the movement feels good but how can you to tell when you don't have it in your hands. All I know is there's something about the look of this that makes me sceptical. Especially since they had to bill it in the showcase as "from the makers of..." instead of letting it stand on its own two legs. A short demo would assuage this I'm sure.

I've been reading some impressions from those playing it and it does seem to have issues. Apparently there's no camera control, which I find weird for a 3D platformer, and there are lots of glitches and jank that could have done with being patched out. Seems like it could have done with more time in the oven.
