Get Even, in development at Polish studio The Farm 51, wants to blur the line between single and multiplayer.
According to the developer:
The game’s plot revolves around the memories of its central heroes which have a dramatic effect on how the game progresses. The route the player chooses to follow determines their personality as the game unfolds. The carefully crafted storyline mixes elements of thriller and horror with exploration.
And while you’re exploring these memories, other players can invade your game as the enemy, so “players never know whether their opponents are human or CPU-based. The suspense further heightens the player’s feeling of a threat.”
The trailer doesn’t depict much of the gameplay, but based on my experience playing online shooters, I’m pretty sure I’ll know when another player pops in because I’ll suddenly start dying every time the hopping enemy appears.
With that said, the trailer looks awesome. The developer is using “large-scale, real-world scanning” to create the environments, which look really good. The lighting, especially, is some of the most realistic I’ve seen. The animation, too, is excellent. If the team can pull off this level of fidelity when Get Even hits PC and new consoles in 2015, it’ll definitely be worth checking out.
