Literally the only game that piqued my interest in that show.

The original was one of the few of the glut of metroidvania titles in recent years that I felt actually got the right balance of interesting gameplay and map design to warrant the genre as well as being one of the best in it, safe to say I'm chuffed to have more that's hopefully better.

And let me play as that adorable Owlet at some point, Kuro's legacy will live on!

Legit started crying (which surprised me) as soon as I saw Gareth Coker on piano and saw the undeniably-Ori graphics. Ori and the Blind Forest touched me in a way very few games have. The rest of E3 can suck and I'll be happy.

Looked great. Does Windows 10 mean "Windows 10 Store" or is Steam also included?
Previously it meant win10 store only. I really hope that's not the case here.
That would be quite the sellout on moon's part.

Cmon Thomas! Say it ain't so! :-(

Ori came to Steam after a while so I'm hoping/expecting this game gets the same treatment. We have someone from Moon here who'll hopefully chime in at some point...

Hmmm....not really sure what to think.
I don't think the new style looks that good?

Edit: I mean, it still looks good just not as good as the first game

That was an amazing reveal, everyone I know is hyped for this. But if it is store exclusive that will be majorly disappointing.

Ori launched on steam at the same time as xb1.
I know that for a fact because that game is why I built my gaming PC.
Yes, I built a $2300 gaming PC to play ori and the blind forest.
Obviously to play other games and do other thins on it too, but ori is what pushed me over the edge.

Ori and the Blind Forest is one of the most beautiful games I've played. Can't wait for this one.

This is the one game I'm sad that I'll probably never play. The original was amazing.

Heh you're right, I always thought it was a while later. Anyway, I'll take a Windows Store version if I have too, but I'd definitely prefer Steam like everyone here.

Same. Steam would be ideal, but I'll get it on win10. Just need confirmation and preorders to go up.

They've had a publishing and distribution deal with Microsoft for a while now, not really what qualifies as "selling out" to me.
Abandoning one of their major platforms for a bit of upfront cash would certainly be a sellout.
