    "simulational first-person shooter"

    I guess this is one way to call it.

    This looks like Freedom Force meets Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel.

    Hey at least Chey's still in business.

    Would prefer realistic artstyle by default. But the style looks consistent and the overall concept interesting. I want to know more...

    Looks promising. Hope the genre combination works out in the end.

    Besides the fact that her writing is so atrocious that I wouldn't even trust her to write me a cheque, and her being one of the wahmenz stronk people? Nothing much I guess.

    I don't know who this chick is and I don't care as long as her writing won't get in the way of the game itself.

    It would still be nice though if the industry would honor good writing, both as a skill and in terms of salary. Then it would actually attract talent instead of these underpaid, low-self-esteem feminist idiots.

    I like what I've seen so far, but "procedural generation" is always enough to trip some alarms.

    Some gameplay:



    Somewhat basic, but I like how shit goes from bad to worse. Wonder about the oxygen timer, though.

    That Rifter seems inordinately powerful. Overall interesting though.

    The O2 timer is likely a reaction to people just waiting for enemies to roam away.

    There doesn't appear to be any inventory system or character progression, at the start of a mission you can only choose a weapon loadout.

    You don't say...

    The idea is that your inventory is carried between missions. Use all your rivets on one boat and you won't have any for the next one.


    Given that the ships are supposed to be procedurally generated, does this video feel scripted to anyone else? Maybe it's just the commentary sounding like he just wants to kill himself.
