Despite the obvious, err, 'inspiration', a part of me really wants to buy stuff like this to support game development in growing regions.

Yeah i don't think this will see release on the major consoles, they have some form of quality control afterall.

It's tough, because on the one hand I totally agree with you, on the other if you do support the game, then you support their belief that they can just be lazy and copy other properties.

I'd love to believe if something like this gets them noticed and some sales, they would then use that to launch into doing their own original projects.

Provided that it actually gets released, which I'm not conceding it will, I'd be happy to try it. I love the idea of game development from atypical countries. :)

I agree.

When gaming was in its infancy in the West, new games were mainly reskins of existing titles.

Worst pistol sound ever? Worse than the Conduit 2 anyway.

I can't say I'd mind if everyone in the world started ripping off Uncharted.

Why is the dude wearing knee pads? That's just retarded. He looks like some motocross guy.
Better question is why isn't Drake wearing any protective gear? He's constantly getting blown up and smashed into train car walls.

If it plays well, then count me in. Still can't get over that its a Uncharted ripoff. I wonder what Naughty Dog has to say bout this?

I called them for a quote but all I heard on the other end was laughter.
