Is it really $29.99? That does not look like a $29.99 game. Looks good, I'll be keeping my eye on it.

Will it be replayable ?
I'm confused.....

The guys in the video said they wanted to bring back the mid sized game. So 20-30 hours does sound right. And any good game has some amount of replayability. I'm certain the devs want to put some in there.

From what they've revealed so far it seems like they're going for a shorter but deeper experience. I'm totally fine with that.

EDIT: Their take on it...

"Ninja Theory is defined by three things: ninja-class melee gameplay, strong character stories and a unique art vision.

On Hellblade, we will double down on what we do best to give you a deeper character in a twisted world with brutal, uncompromising, combat.

We are embracing the creative spirit that comes with independence without letting go of the stunning production values that we are known for. It’s not indie, it’s not AAA. This is a third way. its independent AAA.

It’s about making a more focused game experience that isn’t trying to be all things to all people but satisfies a particular gaming itch. It’s about being in command of our creativity so that we can give you what you want from us at a lower price.

It’s very early days in the project but we are opening our doors and inviting you to join us every step of the way. We want to show you how we make this game warts and all so that you can be part of this journey.

The game is dedicated to our fans and supporters."

This sold the game to me. I don't want to look up any more about it, I'm just gonna buy it.

I'd encourage anyone interested to check out their site http://www.hellblade.com/

There's really cool developer diary kinda stuff, including a look at the actors they're using for motion capture and all that. There's some cool media to take a peek at too.

The only thing I found I need to share with everyone came from their relatively short FAQs. They anticipate the game to last between 6-8 hours. I don't see anything on replayability so there's the caution flag for some buyers. If you're gonna buy it regardless, I'd say do the pre-order route so at least you can get the theme or comic to help boost the value a touch.
