Team 17 announces Worms Revolution

Team 17 is very proud to announce the return of earthworm warriors for a new title drawing from the original game released in 1995 but which will also surprise us with lots of new things. We unfortunately don't know more than that but this first teaser allows us to see that the 2D, turn-based gameplay was not too rushed. Worms Revolution is announced on PC and "consoles" without further details.

back in the day the one thing I really wanted from worms was hats. you could write names for your team and all your worms, you could change the voices - even record your own .wav files and use those, but you could never modify the worms' appearance. this is the final frontier team17.

give me hats.

I will give you money for hats.

How many times are they going to release the same game over and over?
Isn't that like Worms Reloaded, which was like Armageddon, which was like World Party, Which was like Worms 2?

Basically seems like what a Worms 3 should be. Side-view polygonal with more modern effects and simulation, like fluids and 2D pixel-like (voxel?) collision and deformation and such.

A "new" worms game. Is such a thing even possible? Just make Armageddon easier to play on modern machines, try and raise some awareness of it, and bam, a good deed has been done. Maybe some money's been made, too.

Armageddon came before World Party, but I see where you're going with this.

Anyway, Reloaded has hats. Hats.

The teaser video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7miws0VhEs

Hasn't impressed me. I don't like the 3D graphics and fluid phisycs are cool, but don't seem to add much to the gameplay.

Hey Team 17 it would be pretty awesome if you stopped releasing Worms over and over and went back to Superfrog.

Yep all worms games are the same. I spent a good hour a few months back thinking how you change worms to make it interesting again and came up with nothing. So they might as well just keep doing the same thing over and ever until people stop buying it.

There isnt a proper worms on consoles yet. Armageddon is missing many weapons from the old pc games. Also the multiplayer is limited to 8 worms max.

Ha, the preview for the thread title cut off right after Worms, I made a little bet with myself about which cliche video game subtitle it would use, and surprisingly, I won.

Did anybody else here play Worms 4? The camera when using the Ninja Rope is so utterly broken that the utility is literally impossible to use. I actually don't mind the game, broken NR notwithstanding, but it's painfully obvious that Team17 rushed it out for a few quick bucks. (From what I gathered, Worms 3D is even worse.)

Team 17 used to be a studio filled with talented and creative people.

Now they are a shovelware one-trick pony.
Like Rovio, but with much less money and recognition.

How often can you remake the same game?


Fluid dynamics could change the formula up some (think of the arena as an underground cave, poking holes in walls to let lava through etc), but just using water bombs (you can catch a glimpse in the footage) doesn't seem particularly inspired or deep reaching.

Armageddon for me. It took way too long for WWP to come out. I lost interest by release. :(

It's a shame they decided to kill the ninja rope.

Doesn't the most recent patch for WA solve a lot of problems with running it on modern systems?
