Irrational’s Icarus debuting tonight – premiere event report on VG247 at 7.00pm BST

Thursday, 12th August 2010 09:28 GMT By Johnny Cullen


What is Icarus? You’re going to find out tonight.

The debut trailer for the much talked about Project Icarus from Ken Levine’s Irrational Games will debut at 1.45pm EST tonight, or 6.45pm BST, as detailed by an update on the game’s teaser site.

The game was shown to press in New York last night. We were there. The coverage embargo lifts 15 minutes after the first movie will appear, so look for our content at 2.00pm EST (7.00pm BST, 8.00pm CET).

Before last night’s event, Levine confirmed that the game was to be shown to the journalists with both a trailer and a live demonstration.

In the coming weeks, the demo will be released to the community as well, but there’s no exact date of “when” just yet, he said.

According to Levine: “You can send me a threatening PM, but it will have no effect other than to hurt my very delicate feelings.”

Fine. We’ll be nice, then. Don’t blink. You can’t miss this.

    They really need to shed that Icarus tag because I keep thinking Deus Ex Human Revolution.

    @9 The press gets to see the trailer before the public tomorrow at a press event, as well as getting a live demo of the game at the same time.

    Then on Thursday, the public will get the trailer, the reveal and previews, but we won’t see the demo footage until sometime afterwards.

    “In the coming weeks, we will be releasing a *video* of the demonstration to the community as well.”

    Not a demo? Just a *video* of the demo?

    @11 Pretty much – the press will see the demonstration, and said demo will be released in video form just like the ones from E3 and other press events.

    Ah, OK. The wording in the post was just a little ambiguous.

    All this time I thought the news articles regarding this were just about Kid Icarus on 3DS, so just skimmed over them. lol
