Among the games that Microsoft presented at E3 2021, there is also a replacement: the title was one of the most appreciated by the audience, let’s find out together in the preview.
He was replaced by a talented team of young people from all over the world. The developer Sad Cat Studios is not an American, English or French software house, but rather a Belarusian. Located in Minsk, the studio has collaborated with expert Coatsink programmers to create this beautiful adventure in a distinctive 2.5D graphic style.
NilePreview has been replaced Let’s discover this Cyberpunk platform.
Last night? Maybe better!
The indie scene is also made up of talented small studios, with low budgets but with concrete ideas. It was replaced by his ability to kidnap onlookers at Microsoft’s presentation with an insightful video, full of detail and detail about gameplay. One of the most striking aspects was the very elegant graphic representation of the setting, which was created thanks to the really nice pixelart. Let’s start from the beginning.
From the first few tapes, several have replaced the new game The Last Night, another indie game that was introduced at E3 2017 and then mysteriously disappeared from the spotlight (but in fact seems to always be in development). After a few seconds we understand that, on the contrary, it is a completely new game. 2D visual style with a fully 3D background and elements set to “8-bit squares”. The scene is very deep and the view It moves smoothly and convincingly thanks to the 3D nature of all the background elements. The substitution shows us an enviable field of view for a title of this type.
What we can pick up from the show
Let’s talk about a working platform With a futuristic and dystopian connotation, it is set in an alternate version of 80s. In the presentation you can see many very different settings, starting with the forest as the protagonist passes through trees, shrubs and fallen logs. The great interest in three elements is immediately evident: the first, the clear quality, is the sound effects. Very clean, well previewed, high impact and realistic. The second aspect is the animation: in the video everything is already moving, and well. The protagonist, called ReachesHe manipulates very boldly as he runs and dodges objects in his path.
Then there are many details on the screen such as little leaves fluttering all over the place, debris from a fire, and trees bending with the wind and moving in all directions. The third element is the effects: light, fog, reflections and many other details suggest a very subtle gameplay. Then, the action moves from the bush to the city, which, instead of representing a cold place where the action takes place, appears to be a real supporting actor of the plot. Just like New Tokyo was the first movie of ghost in bowl. You immediately understand the background strongly cyberpunk And decadent, made up of notorious and poor alleys that contradict the idea of a better technological future for all, it was clearly never realized.
Elegant scrolling from the side of the work
The gameplay moves around the city, showing us a few seconds of hand-to-hand combat. At first glance it appears that a file combat system It resumes in some ways the good seen in titles such as, for example, Batman of Rocksteady, and suggests a sort of “Free streaming battles“With frighteningly beautiful animations that are well-connected. Combat consists of close-up shots and the use of firearms in a quick sequence, with the ability to finish off the opponent with a more brutal and violent movement. It feels really fast and smooth interaction has been replaced by not just fast-paced action, but much closer to the genre Adventurous, platform and exploration scenes are also interspersed.
We notice in the video how the protagonist manages to climb walls, clinging to items from the background to climb, and can jump from side to side in perfect Tomb Raider fashion, just to name one of the exponents. action adventure Most famous. It is clear how the replaced levels develop following all directions, with great importance being given to vertical levels due to the nature of the city in which the game is set. Like all futuristic megacities, it is actually full of skyscrapers, structures and tall buildings that make up the perfect setting for a cyberpunk address. In short, in about two minutes into the show, we saw many beautiful things. Slightly less than Release date: General 2022 It will keep you on your toes for a long time.
It replaced itself for the general public at E3 2021 with a very compelling video that showed off the many good things the two development teams did. The title practically comes out of nowhere, and is already in the most wanted by many gamers who love the pixelart and cyberpunk-dystopian context of the 80s. The graphic style is very interesting, as are the sound effects, and the combat system looks very fluid and interesting. Lots of skepticism about the actual release of the game, dated 2022, and about one of the most important aspects of the video game: how long will it last?
