    Meatly, the creator of Bendy, has literally made a parody game of Garten of Banban to show how bad the situation of indie horror games is.

      Yeah, I don't think the game itself is anything special- it's a furthens the problems of Poppy's Playtime, but like Poppy's Playtime, it has one or two good enough elements that it was able to kick off as a "good" horror game to people willing to overlook the lack of polish and care put into other important areas.

      @deg vegas Im not talking about the bird. The bird goofy AF. I'm talking about the way the bird moves towards you before the chase scene. If applied to an actually scary monster in an actually scary game, I think it would've been cool. Just pointing out massive missed potential. Besides, we can't rob the Euphoric brothers of ALL credit.

    -The bird for KZclipr reactions and thumbnails
    -The end of the first (chapter? level?) is roughly the perfect length for a gameplay video
    It's literally tailor made for KZclipr reaction videos, and it worked

    1:59 No idea if someone already said as much, but note from germany: Garten is the german word for garden. When I just got deeper into english scripts of horror games in my late childhood/early teens, it actually slightly spooked me to see "Kindergarten" in the language at all, because neither of those are english words.(Kind is german for Child.) I guess it could theoretically be translated as Garden of Children if we squint our eyes, making the name of this game a weird pun.(Though that may actually be unintentional and pure luck with how bootleg the product actually is)

    I genuinely believe that GOB was made unironically at first, then after it started trending cause of the Bird Up memes and other such ironic shit, the Euphoric Brothers decided to act like it was an ironic game afterwards. The way they were hiding replies making fun of their game until it got ironic popularity, then suddenly going through and reverting all of that only solidifies this idea to me.

Honestly, he made it work, and if the Euphoric Brothers own it, then maybe Garten Of BanBan 2 can be genuinely enjoyed as horror comedy/satire, assuming they pull it off in a way that doesn't come off as trying too hard.

    On the KZclip side - I think the most surprising thing to me is the number of creators who leveraged the name "Poppy Playtime" in Banban video titles to drive clicks, meanwhile a few years back MatPat got dragged for doing it with Undertale's name. A complete 180, regardless of how one feels about Banban's quality.

      NotRod 16 күн бұрын +2

      I think this a bit of an unfair reading of the situation.
      The problem with Matt's stream is that he didn't link the game at all, and when called out on it tried to double down and didn't apologise. Irrc he didn't even name the game in the title. Most of the videos I've seen at least mention the game so you can go find it.
      Matt gets dogpiled for some dumb shit but the backlash from the heartbound stream was completely deserved. He didn't credit the artist, we all know that's bad.

    • sugarsweetsunshine
      sugarsweetsunshine Ай бұрын +5

      I feel like that's a different situation because with the Undertale/MatPat thing, MatPat was comparing every other game to Undertale (including using the algorithm to make the video more recommended with Undertale tags) as like a 'showcase' type of style but taking away the game's identity by just saying it was another Undertale. The games were unique but they were just being labelled as "like Undertale" instead of being a game that might _remind you_ of Undertale.
      The whole Banban comparison I feel is to highlight how little originality indie games like these have now. They follow the same linear plotline, same monster mechanics, etc. To the point where it's becoming bland and overdone and you can put games like Poppy Playtime and Banban side by side and see very few major differences. There's nothing unique about it anymore.

      This comment is a prime example of causing discourse, unintentionally or intentionally.
      Matpat refusing to give proper credit and links if I remember right, when confronted by the devs he still refused and played it off as a good thing only giving up when Toby Fox said something. So did this happen with Banban?
      It isn't one 180 and part of the reason things get so hostile when you mention Undertale.
      Edit: To clarify, the hostility is due to false blame which Undertale had to deal a lot with, a big thing was Megalovania where Homestuck community tried to take credit for that theme when it was in a romhack Toby made before that. Undertale got kicked a lot by ignorance... which led to people being a lot more annoyed with Matpat since it came across less as funny and more as kick the beaten dog. Which ultimately ended with him doing as I mentioned and made his character questionable as it looks like he was trying to stir up discourse.

    Someone should make a game similar in style to this and make it seem like some cash grab and promote a second game and everything and have merch, but have the merch site and wishlist page for the second game have an ARG and when the second game releases it's a genuinely good horror game.

It genuinely looks like the birds I’ve worked with, they do almost exactly what she did before they decide to strike and attack you. (Usually playfully with the ones I deal with tho.) She honestly scares me because she feels like I’m up against an actual giant bird that could hurt me lmfao."

    What sets Poppy apart from the cash grabs like Banban is that, after their pretty demo-like chapter 1, they seem to be putting effort into making something worthwhile as we can see with their attempt to make a L4D/DBD style multiplayer game and be relatively successful at it (being that it’s their first multiplayer game). And even though both Banban and Poppy have basic Chapter 1s, Poppy still had quite high quality visuals compared to Banban and still had more than 3 minutes of gameplay. I’ve seen people call Poppy “The problem with indie horror” when they should be saying that about Banban

      @Stargatory Don’t know why it runs bad for you, I use a gaming laptop and it runs fine for me. Even still, Poppy playtime started with old and stale concepts and the whole “childhood thing become scary” is oversaturated at this point, but I’m still keeping an eye on it for the later chapters since the monsters themselves are relatively unique in this sector of games. Most of these mascot horrors are more stiff movements like robots, meanwhile Poppy has things like Mommly Longlegs which is a pretty refreshing monster idea. And even if you have gripes with Poppy, Project Playtime is quite fun and, sure it’s still glitchy, at least it’s getting worked on and updated while being a fun time still (unlike some other massive triple A release where the devs are “content with the current state of the game”). Out of the Mascot Horrors, I have more hope in Poppy than I do with Hello Neighbor and this Banban crap.

    I kinda think it's more story wise then game play as the first part was kinda just a demo... but it's fun to look into the story. And clay figure looks cool. But the surprises aren't really surprising as if you read around you can predict what's going to happen before it does happen. They put effort in it but not as much as could be in it and it would be nice if they had more minigames instead of look for the EGG scenes. Like sometime you have to do to open certain doors or to operate the drone making it harder because you have to do the minigame while being chased :D

    The way I see it, as long as they aren’t as bad as the Poppy devs, I’ll support the game. I actually thought the bird design was really creepy. The blank expression and the simple textures really emphasize that it’s a kid’s toy. And seeing it starting at you so creepily is just… yeah it was pretty creepy. Definitely terrified me more than Poppy, FNAF, or Bendy ever could. Of course, FNAF and Bendy are still better franchises, but there’s potential. It definitely needs a lot of work though.
    After seeing the second "game," I've changed my opinion. These games are so bad. There's just nothing in them lol. Thought there'd be a quality improvement (or hoped there would be), but nope. Just as bare bones as the first. Still not as bad as Poppy's devs, but these guys are super lazy.
