According to this Destructoid piece, Eternity’s Child developer Luc Bernard has decided to remove the site’s robotic mascot from his game after it posted a review that chose to “kind of call Eternity’s Child the worst game ever made and then everyone said ‘Fuck you Luc,’ when he called our reviewers unprofessional.”
Bernard went a bit postal in the review’s comments after the 1/10 score was published, and the removal of Mr Destructoid from the platformer is described in that story as a “a bitter attempt at a cheap shot.”
Full thing through the link.

As you can see here, Luc Bernard’s Eternity’s Child is now available on Steam for the unignorable price of $4.49.
The arty 2D platformer is a contemporary fable on the dangers of global warming, and has Steam-only levels, apparently.
It’s Sunday. Buy it.

Speaking with WiiWare World, Eternity’s Child designer Luc Bernard expressed doubt as to whether his game would be released in America.
“Eternity’s Child is currently only coming out in Europe on WiiWare for the moment,” he said. “Alten8 (publisher) have the WiiWare version and it’s their decision when or where to release it, and from what I know Europe is their priority. At this point I think Eternity’s Child Wiiware might come out in Europe at the end of Q3, but I don’t control when or where it comes out.”
The game’s art style is jaw-dropping, so we hope Eternity’s Child reaches as far around the globe as possible. However, it also looks as though it will live it up to its name (the “Eternity” part, not the “Child” part) – which is a bad thing, in this case.

Developer Luc Bernard isn’t happy with platformer Eternity’s Child, but hopes he’ll achieve enough success with it to keep the wolf from the door for a while yet.
“To be honest, I am not satisfied with Eternity’s Child,” he said in this Konsolifin interview. “I hope that is does well enough for me to be able to do the game of my dreams and not live off noodles.”
There’s still no date placed on the game – which is set on a future earth ravaged by global warming – but some impressions popped up yesterday. So have a look.

Some hands-on impressions with Luc Bernard’s 2D art-house platformer Eternity’s Child on Wiicast. It’s based on a single-level demo and sounds good. No release date for it yet.

Speaking on his Destructoid blog, indie developer Luc Bernard has confirmed that arthouse platformer Eternity’s Child will be released on Steam next month.
The game was originally supposed to be releasing on WiiWare, but apparently it’s now in the hands of Luc’s publisher as to whether that’s going to happen at all.
Eternity’s Child will cost $4.99 and will be updated often, Bernard promises “with new scenarios and worlds”.
Buy it. You really may as well.

Below, taken from here. The Wii game’s being developed by Luc Bernard, the British developer behind controversial WWII DS “concept” Imagination is the Only Escape. No date for this yet.

According to this, Nintendo has confirmed that Imagination Is the Only Escape will not be released in America.
“At this time, there are no plans for this game to be released for any Nintendo platforms in North America,” the company said in a statement.
The game, created by 21-year-old Brit Luc Bernard and published by Alten8, is the story of a boy living in Eastern France at the time of German occupation during WWII, who seeks to escape the horrors of war through his fantasy world.
“There will be no on-screen violence in this product,” said Bernard. “I don’t see war as a game. I don’t find that amusing.”
Bernard’s mother was Jewish, and his maternal grandmother looked after orphaned Jewish children after WWII.
While Nintendo may not approve of the game, US-based Anti-Defamation League has welcomed the concept of the title, although it hasn’t seen the title as yet.
“We certainly believe that we have to find new ways of teaching lessons of the Holocaust as new technologies are being developed,” said a spokesperson for the society.
Bernard is also developing Eternity’s Child for Wii and DS, again published by Alten8, which focuses on a world destroyed by global warming.
