    Many senior Piranha Bytes Red employees split from the company last year. Several formed a new studio, Giant Gun Games, and are developing a roguelite FPS.

    Pacing of a game != protagonist foot speed. This does look very fast-paced, i.e. constant action! action! action! In fact monotonously so.

    The game is literally all blue and orange. Except when the screen is covered with shit, which is half the time. Looks really boring too.

    That looks so much fun to explore...

    It's like Doom never happened and Wolf3D's level design is still the example to follow. Not that Wolf3D looked as bland and boring as this, far from it actually.

    It's Unreal Engine 4. They applied for a grant with Epic to receive more funding.

    Ironically the game is funded by selling assets on the Unreal store.

    I appreciate this garbage is out of RPG discussion, but you should probably keep going and send it to Retardo Land.

    Looks phenomenally bad. It's like someone took Serious Sam and said "hey, wouldn't this be better if everything was confined to identical 1m-wide corridors?"

    I have a thing for fps roguelike games with fast and fun combat. Still play ziggurat often as my go to fix. And this looks like Shute. :despair:

    Found some new information. Update:

    - The storepage images are from a very early prototype build
    - The levels are no longer randomly generated
    - They plan is to release it into early access once they improve the graphics
    - It will feature Twitch integration allowing viewers to affect the gameplay
    - They're open to an Epic store exclusivity agreement

    I found an executive summary detailing their budget and monetization plans. Microtransactions are confirmed.
