    Gore, fast pace, lots of weapons, metal OST (by Andrew Hulshult, the composer of Brutal Doom's soundtrack), retrò graphics (no pixel art inside, though):
    this is Dusk.



    The will feature a single player campaign, an endless survival mode, and a PVP arena 1v1.
    Coming out in 2017.

    Seems pretty cool.

    Art wise, this looks inferior and shoddy compared to any of games they cite as inspiration.

    For example, almost 20 years old Quake TC has more interesting looking architecture and environments that any of what they've shown in that trailer

    I'm getting really tired of this 'cite older game's artstyle as inspiration and proceed to make it look somehow worse' meme
    Seems like the gameplay might be decent, although even the levels look like crap

    Looks like some low-effort Russian Quake clone from 1997.

    edit: And of course this oldskool shooter is powered by Unity.

    Well, it was high time for "retro 3D" to become an excuse for laziness or lack of talent/funds among indie devs in a same way that "pixel art" has been for ages now.
    Sad thing is that low poly 3D can be really attractive looking... but that requires actual effort.

    I might give it a try, what are the system specs? Pentium 200 MMX with 3DFX?

    A pity none of these modern indie devs don't try to create decent sprite-based 2,5 D fpp shooter... Build Engine is open soure since years, Doom's - the same...

    I'm amazed that there are folks with fond memories of Blood 2 out there. Fond memories of Blood 2's visuals in particular.

    Stop giving so much shit to this game because of its artstyle, who cares. Do you think this newfangled motion blur, depth of field, super detailed textures and HDR add anything of value?

    Will wait to see how level design is. If they can get that right, I'm sold.

    Don't give a shit about the graphics and neither should you.

    It's a VIDEO game. If it was a radio game or some shit I wouldn't give a fuck.

    I don't see anything in that video that looks worse than what they're claiming as inspirations (Doom-era shooters).

    You need a new pair of eyes. The game looks considerably worst than either Quake or Doom for starters. It seems now making your game look like shit above and beyond any restriction imposed by a low budget or anything like that has become a trend with indie devs. First pixel art that looks far shittier than any actual pixel game from old, and now this butt ugly 3D "retro" shit that makes the original Quake look like fucking Crysis.

    Also, the video doesn't show any level design so who knows whether this game even approaches those classic shooters. Also, am i the only one who gets triggered by the FOV used in modern shooters? WTF is that shit. Everything looks warped and retarded.

    Game looks like somebody took a shit, ate it, barfed it up, cooked it, ate it again, shit it out and then peed on it.

    And that's putting it mildly.

    The Andrew Hulshult OST should be good at least.

    It's unity, so you'll need a top tier rig to get near 60fps.

    Eh. Gameplay looks fine, but...

    The level design that can be seen in this video is, at best, severely underwhelming.

    Meh, I'll play it.

    At least it isn't MP only "arena" FPS, like Toxikk.

    Game looks fun but they really need a level designer.
