They revealed this at the E3 press conference, but I don't think they showed any real gameplay.  Looks bizarre and cool.

I have no idea why it is just pulling that guy along on the ground.   What's the point of a motorcycle you don't ride?  icon_confused

Perhaps you're playing as some sort of sentient motorcycle who's dragging the guy around to exact revenge on the human race?  Wow, that's a sentence I wouldn't have thought I would ever type slywink

Weird!  Definitely waiting on impressions first.

Yeah, if you showed me those screens and video and told me this was some student game or a small indie project I wouldn't be surprised.

Eurogamer's Xbox One review of LocoCycle


Oh Dear

Quote
Ultimately, the whole thing is depressing more often than it's annoying. Twisted Pixel's lineage suggests that LocoCycle is made by talented and creative designers who had a handful of potentially entertaining ideas to play with. The implementation is rushed and slipshod, however, ignoring fundamental problems and expending limited energy on the wrong things. What you're getting for your money feels a little like somebody else's office in-joke: you can sense the well-intentioned laughter, but you can't really join in.

4/10

Unfortunately, it's getting bad reviews pretty much all-around.  I think the highest I've seen is a 6.5.

yup,as others have said(perhaps in the comments section on EG),it just looked so off straight from the get go,and i am a fan of Twisted Pixel so it's even more puzzling/disappointing...then i remember that Microsoft had bought them,and they have not had a game out since then...so it then started to make sense  Tongue (yes,that's a RARE reference slywink )

Every comment I've heard about this game since it was announced was that it was terrible. I'm actually surprised that the review was as high as a 6.
