در بین ویدیوهای تبلیغاتی که سال ۲۰۱۸ حین مراسم گیم آواردز پخش می‌شد، دو ویدیو خیلی به مذاقم خوش آمد: اولی تیزر همین بازی است که امروز می‌خواهیم باهم ببینیم و دومی مربوط به بازی Hades بود. به خاطر دارم که با همان اولین بار تماشای تیزر به خودم گفتم: این بازی خوبی خواهد شد! چرا؟ چون در انتهای تیزر اشاره می‌کرد که «دوست من پدرو» قرار است برای کنسول سوئیچ منتشر شود و همین یک راهنما برای اطمینان از کیفیت یک محصول کافی است.

گذشت و گذشت تا چند وقت پیش که اخبار انتشار دوست من پدرو درز کرد و به فاصله کمی نمرات و بررسی‌ها نشان از موفقیت این عنوان مستقل دادند. علاوه بر کسب نمرات بالا از منابع موثق صنعت بازی‌های ویدیویی، این محصول بازخوردهای بسیار خوبی را هم از طرف مخاطبین دریافت کرد. به طوری که در هفته اول انتشار خود تبدیل به یکی از موارد مورد بحث (Trend) در انجمن‌های طرفداران نینتندو شد.

متاسفانه به دلایلی نتوانستم این ویدیو و مطلب را زودتر منتشر کنم. اما می‌دانم بازی به اندازه‌ای خوب هست که هنوز هم بشود با شوق و ذوق درباره آن صحبت کرد. محصول مستقلی که در کمال ناباوری ساخته دست یک نفر است! بله! این اولین بار نیست که یک نفر یک عنوان قابل قبول می‌سازد (مراجعه کنید به جایزه بهترین بازی مستقل سال ۲۰۱۸). دوست من پدرو ساخته استودیو DeadToast Entertainment و منتشر شده توسط Devolver Digital برای رایانه‌های شخصی و نینتندو سوییچ است.

ویدیویی که برایتان تهیه شده، تجربه کوتاهی از این بازی است. در کلیپ پایین، فقط چند مرحله به طور منتخب امتحان شده تا با حال و هوای دوست من پدرو، بیشتر آشنا شوید.

My Friend Pedro Main Page Theme
Main Theme My Friend Pedro

The first time I fell in love with a banana was years ago; though not a child back then on my very first encounter with this edible joyful object, yet everything about it felt somewhat childlike: the stupidly funny yellow color, the non-round non-square non-straight shape, the ease with which to peel, and the best part, the taste. From that moment on, me and banana were in an open relationship, sometimes I would madly follow him, sometimes he snobbishly (due to the price fluctuations) refused me and . . ..

And in Game Awards 2018 came the time when I fell in love with banana for a third time. Yes, because the second time was when I watched Despicable Me, and saw minions going banana for banana. During the Game Awards of 2018, some games were advertised, one of which was about a guy who had guns and a banana. The moment I saw the add, I could not help smiling and talking to myself: oh, this is gonna be hell of a game!

Guess what? I was not wrong (happens once in three years). The video I have seen there was the teaser for the indie video game My Friend Pedro, developed by DeadToast Entertainment and publish by Devolver Digital for PC and Nintendo Switch. I got the game early on, but unfortunately could not manage to talk about it. So here we go: My (banana) Friend (crazy) Pedro:Blood.Bullets.Bananas.

A Funny Fan Art My Friend Pedro

Bullet

My Friend Pedro is a side-scroller, shooting-action, 3D indie game, made by the mighty hands of a SINGLE human being, Victor, who is the head and tail of DeadToast Entertainment (DE). DE or to say, Victor, has a history which officially started in 2005 with web games. Before DE, Victor worked as a level designer and he partook in the development of video games such as LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway (I took that part directly from DE homepage). There are other people involved in the making of My Friend Pedro, but: first, I am not sure about their roles in the process, and second, it feels better to think of a single-maker than a group of people.


Banana

Everything is fun about banana, I mean about My Friend Pedro: the main character is a masked, mute, serious guy; there is a talking banana; it is rated TEEN; it is about shooting (bad) people. The game is visually, audially, tactilely, and even gustationally healthy, digestible and very enjoyable to consume. It is fast-paced, action packed, music-packed, fun-packed, joy-packed and very addictive. The addictive part comes to one when he beats the game once and goes back to break his own records; the addiction worsens when he tries to share his records and . . ..

Regarding the game-play, mechanics, physics and rules of platforming, there is nothing in My Friend Pedro which would hinder enjoying it. I do not mean the game is perfect (I think it is awesome) and there are no technical problems (actually there some issues in the game), however, if one goes for it as a video game, not for criticism but for fun, My Friend Pedro just rocks; especially when it comes to music. Music and rhythm are among the pillars of this game, and it may not be totally wrong to claim that at some failing points, it is the music that saves the game from going too deep.


Blood

My Friend Pedro is not a long game; nor is it a very short one. Victor was clever enough not to prolong a game which does not have a good deal of variation in mechanics or missions. This game is about grinding, but not for level or item or any certain achievements. It is about perfection, how to get better at each level, doing the same things over and over, and from time to time, sharing the amazing results with others.

All the scores and points one receives during a level will end up in a single alphabet letter; A, B, C, or something else which I do not know (show off). Again, clever Victor added his touch of humor to these dull letters and . . . I am not going to tell you, go check out the game. But all his and Pedro’s efforts do not suffice for keeping the player playing a long time. You may find yourself stuffed with banana and would rather try your hand at some other edible joyful objects.

This is not a negative mark for My Friend Pedro; it is a potential ground zero for My Friend Pedro 2, where I am hopeful that Victor would add a bit of RPG elements like using XP points for upgrading stuff or introducing some perks or abilities, just to make things more complicated.


Pedro

So, regarding everything, I mean every single thing about this game, I shall say that My Friend Pedro is among the indie must-haves for summer; check out my video and you will see (pun intended, though a very dull and naïve one). Also check out DeadToast webpage to learn more about other games developed by Victor! You can also chat with Pedro on his own website! The heck are you waiting for?

    اصلا نمیشه با تاچ پد از مرحله ای که دو هدف رو همزمان شلیک میکنه گذشت.
