    rougelike FPS is one of the shittiest sub genre for FPS behind corridor shooter. i played this apparently critically claimed game called ziggurat and it is fucking boring. the core gameplay itself is good, but all the levels are randomized shit, roulette arrays of the same enemies and level combination. there is no sense of place, no sense of thoughtful encounters, just random shit, you die, then play trough the samey random shit again.

    rouge like is cancer

    I guess the competent guys from Piranha Bytes decided to try gamedev on their own :)

    They already have an inside connection. The UI designer is a former Epic Games employee

    The graphics are obviously pre-alpha. Sascha Heinrichs is a very talented 3D designer that teaches professionally in colleges, so I can't imagine the final product looking anything like this.

    Maze Slaughter is developed in Unreal Engine 4 by the way, not Unity.
