Numerous game trailers have been released to coincide with the ongoing Gamescom show in Germany. Some have been more impressive than others, and a couple in particular caught my eye today. Let's start with Routine, a "first person horror exploration game" that promises open-world access to a Moon base that's clearly seen better days. Here's the teaser trailer:
I'm getting a bit of a Dead Space vibe, but there's a distinct lack of scary monsters. Routine seems to focus more on exploration than on combat. Surviving the game should still be challenging, because there are no health packs or multiple lives. If you die, you're dead. Game over.
Well, there's one way to create tension. The concept is intriguing, to say the least. Routine is built on Unreal Engine 3 and scheduled for release on the PC early next year, according to Shacknews.
In a slightly more conventional vein, Remember Me offers a third-person perspective and the ability to remix the memories of your foes. This gameplay trailer shows the remixing mechanic in action during an
assassination assisted-suicide mission. Warning: there's some adult language in the video.
Looks like an interesting mix of sneaking around and cinematic manipulation. The announcement trailer shows additional snippets of the game, including a handful of more traditional combat sequences. Presumably, killing won't be limited to memory remixing alone.
