Wolfire Games, the indie company behind Overgrowth, have participated to the 7DFPS challenge (7 days for a first person shooter game) and produced a very original and interesting prototype called “Receiver”.
Here is the pitch:
Receiver was created for the 7-day FPS challenge to explore gun handling mechanics, randomized levels, and unordered storytelling. Armed only with a Colt 1911 A1 and an audiocassette player, you must uncover the secrets of the Mindkill in a building complex infested with automated turrets and hovering shock drones.
Check out the game trailer :
And the now typical “Art Asset Overview” video by Aubrey Serr, Wolfire Games’ lead artist:
As always, very inspiring and documented stuff to watch.
