I stumbled across this hidden gem the other day and I wanted to share it with ya’ll!
Sometimes, it can be really easy to get so caught up in the gorgeousness and vision of Star Citizen – as well as the hype train that ensues – that we forget that making a video game, when it comes down to the bottom line, is all about one thing: having fun. If you take a moment to think about it, we critique games on graphics, on replayability, on multiplayer implementation, the variety of gameplay, on sound design, etc… but really, if a game isn’t fun, then it’s worthless, even if it scores high on every other category.
This is something that DecoyDrone seems to have taken to heart with his new video, Star Citizen Promo. In this lovingly handcrafted video, DecoyDrone tells his own story about Star Citizen, but in a much more lighthearted and easygoing manner than most other fan videos you’ll find. Exploring the fun nature of Star Citizen, DecoyDrone incorporates a soundtrack and design sensation that does a great job of mimicking commercials hailing from the 1980s.
Relaxed, fast, witty, and very enjoyable, Star Citizen Promo is an amazing and laid-back tribute to an exciting game brimming with fun – and I look forward to seeing more of DecoyDrone’s work in the future.
Well done, DecoyDrone! Well done indeed. :)
