Indie game developer “Yang Bing” (a one-man team) has released a breath-taking trailer for his upcoming action game “Lost Soul Aside”, which has been garnering positive opinion online despite some of his assets being pre-made marketplace assets purchased rather than made.

Yang Bing apparently began his project 2 years ago after becoming inspired by a trailer for Final Fantasy XV (an event that the RPG’s harsher critics would find hard to believe), prompting him to utilize the power of Unreal Engine 4 to try his hand at creating a similarly functioning game.

The trailer, which many believe boasts great potential:

No release date has been confirmed, but the developer has stated that the title is still far from completion…

    One thing you have to understand is that this guy used 100% stock assets. In that regard he was able to mostly focus on the programming. He didn't build the game up from scratch.

    He used stock assets incredibly effectively. Alterations and a few personal items that fit the style together aren't easy, heck the last Star Ocean didn't even fit it's style together and it was built from the ground up. It's still very impressive.

    Still, I guess these aren't that cheap, so it shows investment.

    I mean, being able to do this much on a one man operation is impressive.

    This is pretty fucking amazing, actually. Can you really buy human models like that in U4 asset store?

    Looks better than the garbage that I experienced in the demo for FFXV. Honestly, it took me a while to accept it, but FF is dead. Honestly, it's like they've forgotten that it's supposed to be a video game, entertainment even. The fact that they spent a gorillion dollars for a fag to design fashion for the characters should tell you something.

    Looks like Final Fantasy XV is going to be delayed. After watching this, they're probably going to redo the combat system.

    And the combat already looks better than FFXV's circle-holdathon.

    I hope we hear more of this. I'm really liking the idea of an realistic Devil may cry open world game here.

    The point is that they both do, but animation wise, and even voice acting wise, this guys work shines brighter.

    Maybe SE should do the same then, if they focussed on gameplay they might be able to release a good game for the first time since 1996.

    Finding someone badmouthing Nier is easy as hell, just go to Metacritic and see. don't get me wrong, I love the game but there are tons of people finding faults.
    This demo is actually the action equivalent of an RPG Maker game and that's just it. There are tons of fantastic indies nowadays made mostly of stock assets, but you should not compare hiring a character designer, going through the process of trial and error for every single chara in the game, modelling and animating it, etc with buying tested charas for a tested engine. The differences is just as big as making a game and making a mod, even a total conversion does not generate the same amount of wasted effort.
    That is the main difference in fact. His work looks awesome for a single guy, but not even half of what you're seeing is actually his, that's why he can concentrate on doing the rest as good as he can.
    Again, don't get me wrong, just devoting yourself to creating something of a big scale by yourself is awesome enough. But doing every single step from scratch even (or despite) working in a team simply can not be compared, is like comparing MMD animations with Frozen.

    and in my opinion they dead on ff15, rather than copying the same formula from older ff they decided to come with something new.
    Beside square is not an indie , they will be asked for every step they made and was not in good quality (this is why complains about se games never ends, some games are exception like nier which is so rare to find someone badmouthing it) so in short SE can't focus on just gameplay.
