First impressions of Blacksad: Under The Skin are pretty good!

First off, disclosure that I did get a preview copy from the publisher. But damn, aside from technical issues and clunkiness? I'm finding it seriously engrossing! Feels like it really fills the gap left by Telltale.

Now, I am having some issues with framerate drops and textures, but as far as I understand mine is a beta version of the game and it'll be patched up before launch. That's the aforementioned technical issues, mainly graphical. It didn't get in the way of my enjoyment though.

But yeah, furry noir detective game? It's definitely hitting the mark on story and intrigue, I'm into it and played nearly 5 hours straight today.

And "I didn't even know there was a Blacksad game?!" seems to be a common response, so yes. There's a Blacksad game.
