Replay – Marc Eckō's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure
Released in 2003, fashion designer Marc Eckō proved he was also a fairly capable game designer with Marc Eckō's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure.
In the game, players play as Trane, a budding street artist with parkour skills and a collection of spray paints. We scored the game a 7.25 upon release, complaining about its combat (which you will see why in the episode below), but praising its platforming and exploration. Join me, Andrew Reiner, Tim Turi, and Jeff Cork as almost all of us take our first look at the 12-year-old game. Oddly, the game was republished for PC in 2013 by Devolver Digital, and that same year the official Ecko Unltd. twitter account said a sequel was in the works. We haven't heard much since.
Also, make sure to stick around for an extended second segment covering a PlayStation title, and to hear me laugh possibly harder than I ever have during an episode of Replay.
Note: I keep referencing Mr. Brainfreeze from the film, Exit Through the Gift Shop. I, of course, meant Mr. Brainwash. I kept saying the wrong name just to see if you were paying attention.
