    I see they're continuing down the path of extremely meh monster design. That's a big bummer for a game that's supposed to be like Q1.

    Monster design is stellar.

    We have seen six monster types so far. The zombies, zombies with guns, the mummy, the flying torso from Quake, and glimpses of two original monsters. They haven't shown any unique monster mechanics. I'm more excited about the weapons tbh.

    Also with a "you will not survive" tagline, they better muster up decently challenging gameplay.

    The basic zombies are non-enemies. They aren't dangerous in any way, what's the point? I hope it's just something you encounter in the beginning and never see again later on, at least not in the slow moving, non-shooting easy to kill variant that serves no purpose we see in that video.

    I am not feeling the monsters yet, either. They don't seem to have the charisma/solid gameplay role of classic FPS enemies.

    This is one of my main criticisms of all of these new 'throwback' FPS that have been coming out lately.

    Remember the FIEND from Quake, that would instantly instill fear and make you immediately begin strafing and jumping when you heard its 'alerted' sound and the growl it does when it leaps? It even looked as terrifying as it sounded and moved.

    We are missing enemies like this in this new wave of incline.

    Maybe it is the levels they chosen to show off, dark swamp filled with zombies isn't exactly brimming with originality but maybe the full game has more variety than that.

    But it already happened. No doubt some people here are boycotting 3DR for how they handled that situation. Me, I just think this game looks pretty good.

    One of the weapons looked like the Nailgun, although it can alt fire two nails at the same time. Game doesn't feel all that inspired on the gun front either.

    Snowy themed levels:

    Something that looks like runic/zerstorer:

    And the swampy level in the demo is castle/knave.

    It's not bad but i'm not wowed by it. Custom Quake maps look way more impressive.

    But more importantly, why hasn't the dev explicitly said what the protagonist's gender is?

    Xe is wearing a mask, which smells a lot like unwillingness to tackle the issue!

    Don't expect anything until 2020. They kept missing deadlines with Ion Fury as well.
