    I think they mentioned that it might be a placeholder.

    I cannot tell you exactly what, but I am not loving these screenshots. They look somehow anarchic, incoherent, messy, hard to read. The weapons too lack style.

    It's like Lameduke.

    In 2017, probably. Level design? Pfft. Art direction, ease of navigation and realism has to dominate that discipline, that's what everyone is doing and for good reason. Keep with the times. Gaming is better than ever. We've made so much progress since the days of mindless shooting and keyhunting.

    ...that hurt to write. There are retards that actually believe shit like this.

    Heh, modern shooters being shit is one thing, shooters that advertise themselves as "old school" while failing to meet the most basic criteria of an old school shooter is something else entirely.

    Descent engine did this too, back then, though I don't think the official campaign took advantage of it. But I remember one of the levels that shipped with the CD version, had a large room with a big cube in the centre. Each side of the cube had a door, and each of the 6 doors lead to a corridor and a part of the level that was obviously MUCH larger than what could fit in the cube. It was a really cool level. But yeah that's the only other game I can think of.

    I don't remember if it was lunatic fringe, but my favourite use of this in Duke3D was the circular rotating room, which actually went on for more than 360 degrees thanks to the overlapping sectors. Combined with the change to walking speed due to it rotating, it gave the room a disconcerting feel of not being the right size.

    Duke Nukem 3D had some really damn creative level design. Good level design really is a dying art.

    Secondary agenda here is to bump. So, so much popamole on the codex general gaming.

    I have to wonder, though, how much this game too will fall victim to realism and art direction -- the need to make the game look good. Because visually, this is definitely the best work on the Build Engine, and levels do seem to emphasise realism perhaps a little too much. But we'll see. As the post above me mentions, in the likes of Duke 3D you had levels where shit often made no realistic sense. It was good old abstract level design centred around multi-genre gameplay and interesting creativity.

    But will it have mod support? (actually a somewhat serious question)

    I am glad I'll see another "silly demake made for promotion winds up better than shitty AAA game that spawned it" after Dark Void Zero.

    If it's on the Build Engine, it's gonna have mod support regardless probably.

    Bungie's Marathon games did this (example, near the big red A on the map, described in "Secrets" paragraph), from what I get, it even was some kind of a meme ("5D space" - also see this) in those games. Also, I remember a 2.5D FPS game, that was wholly built around this overlap gimmick, although it was a very obscure and arguably not a really good one, it was called "Madspace" (steam link).

    Heh, they're re-purposing the Bombshell account.

    I guess this is the renewed character design?

    Can anyone confirm the dev accounts there? Is Bombshell incline now that it has had further work done on it?

    I'm not ashamed to admit that my classic FPS games gamer's spirit got a woody seeing those screenshots, and I ain't talkin' 'bout that old jew who makes Ingmar Bergman-inspired dramatic-comedies..
