Venetica trailer starts with ‘In a world …’

Yesterday, the ever-alluring Colette Bennett shared with you news of a new PC/360 RPG, Venetica. With only a press release and a few bad screenshots to go off, anticipation hasn’t been high, but maybe this new trailer will see a few converts. Probably not, but we’ll see.

Personally, I dig it. It has a very Fable/Beyond Good & Evil artistic quality that might be lacking in graphical oomph, but is part of this (hopefully continuing) trend of games bringing some color back into consoles, so I approve. The story seems unique and interesting, and anything that bolsters the 360’s RPG department gets my attention.

What do you guys think? Has a trailer done anything to make this a bigger blip on the radar?
