I would like to show you our new game, EFFING DEAD
UPDATE: time to download the NEW BETA, version 0.8.9
with camera improvement & ragdoll: EFFING DEAD
is a survival game
like the amazing Resident Evil 4
, completely in 3D, with real-time light and shadows, glows and water physics.
We love the genre and try to bring back the same feelings
we discover while we played with RE4 and because we are missing
it a bit.
But, also, we try to improve
some aspect of the game mechanics and give it our special touch.
So, to be fair, there is:
- no bow !!!
- no co-op experience !!!
- no silly puzzle on RGB colors !!!
- no remake nor reboot !!!
- no cheasy super machos !!!
- no kinect, Move or Wii control !!!
- no social !!!
- no qte (oh s*it, there are some... ^_^) !!!
..ok,ok,ok, stop joking. Gameplay trailer with updated lights and gfx
