    True to its name, Square Enix's The Quiet Man is making quiet moves towards its release. We got a new trailer a few months ago after hearing nothing about the title since E3 and today, Square Enix announced the release date as well as limited editions for the game. A brand new trailer was also released for the occasion:


    Regarding the limited editions, PlayStation Store purchases from November 1 to 15 will receive the base game, a PlayStation 4 system dynamic theme, and a set of eight PlayStation Network avatars. Steam purchases will be rewarded with the base game, as well as a set of seven desktop and mobile wallpapers. In addition, those who purchase within this period on either platform will receive a 10% discount, adds Square Enix.

    The Quiet Man releases on PS4 and Steam on November 1 for $14.99.

    if this is more expensive than a movie ticket, why would anyone buy it?

    "It can be completed in one sitting." So, will there be multiple outcomes then?

    I've never even heard about this, so I guess it sure was quiet. I like the idea of the more cinematic "game" experiences, but most of them end up disappointing. A Way Out recently was one that I enjoyed. We'll have to see how this one compares - in terms of length and pricing too, of course.

    Interesting approach. If this is successful, I wonder if it'll get several "sequels".

    Hardly what I'd call "limited editions"...
    ...as I can live without avatars and dynamic themes, probably better off waiting for it to be 66%, or more, off in a month or two.

    Depends on the movies you see. Probably 80% of the last dozen movies I've watched cost $15.

    Okay, after looking at the whole trailer, the only thing I can remember is of "muévate".

    The game looks good, but I was hoping for a game completely sound-less, because, after all, you're deaf, but it looks like this won't happen. Let's see when its price gets lower.

    It takes me 5 hours to beat a Layton game so the claim of "beat in one sitting" can vary person to person.

    There is a difference between being designed to beat in one sitting and being able to do it regardless of that though.
    Metroid games can be beaten in a couple hours, but weren't designed for that.

    But I have yet to see the tgs trailer, so I'm cannot say anything about this particular game.

    I'll forever love your puns, Prans.

    Jokes aside, I never expected this game to come out this early, but i'm excited anyway! Seems like one of the more interesting games out there.

    thats it? liar, you must be a genius, some of the puzzles themselves take me an hour to figure out. Layton games are usually 20hr+ gameplay for me

    Wow I didn't think the game was that hard for a 10hr average... I really only have trouble with math ones.

    But yes I clock around 5-6hrs on all of the Layton games. When they release, I spend my evening rolling through them. I don't do DLC, so perhaps that is what is inflating people's playtimes a bit. I just do all puzzles, side puzzles (like within the briefcase), and collect all hint coins.

    These games have a set pattern, so it isn't difficult understanding how they work after you grasp the first game. For instance, the developer seems to place hint coins on the tips of structures or on notable points in the enrivonment. Puzzles follow the "KISS" rule or Occam's Razor most of the time.

    The Ghost Trick avatar is not just for show, I see. Sharp and smart.
