LawBreakers [PC] - Project DOA

Postby DjchunKfunK » Fri Jul 04, 2014 8:43 am

The mild-mannered Cliffy B has announced that he is to cut his retirement short and return to game development. His aim is to make a new FPS that showcases everything that is great about straight shooters like UT and Quake. He doesn't want to worry about messing around with storylines and plot, he just wants to let you shoot people in the face!

To that end he has a countdown timer on his Twitter that will expire on Monday, but it looks like some of the surprise may have been spoilt as the name of his new studio and the codename of his new game appear to have been leaked.

The new studio will be called Boss Key Productions and the game is codenamed Project Bluestreak.

With this and a new Unreal Tournament are we seeing a revival of the FPS arena style games? Also I bet it turns out to be free to play, it has to be surely? Despite my love for these types of games I don't think you can charge money for them anymore.

The whole "big name designer coming back to make the game of his dreams" thing smells like Daikatana to me. :-k

He never left since he had to wade into all gaming discussions like a a big bit of dog shit on your shoe. No matter how much you try and scrape it off the curb it still lingers and embarrasses you till you get home.

Whatever happened to Johny?

Video looks like an HD version of the Jade Empire starting area.

I was just thinking the same thing. Both points.

Come back Johny and come back Jade Empire. We love you!

Futuristic gun-shooter with a whiff of the Japanese? Is IS Daikatana :D

Project Skidmark does not impress Snowy. Little does, granted, but this is not one of those things. [-(

This is a F2P arena shooter right?
Man, this whole rush to be the next e-sport bullshit needs to stop. Had it up to here with knock off Quake/UT clones and me-too MOBAs.

I wonder what will be next. Second rate mobas are all vanishing now, the only place left is a first person one or a 3rd person one thats actually good (ie, not Smite) but not sure thats possible in a meaningful way. Arena shooters will absolutely not be the next thing and all but UT will be a memory in a few years. Theres not a whole lot that can work as a spectator sport. I wish Evo would blow up but if its not happened by now its probably never going to.

I think the answer is someone should remake Hyperblade.

The next big e-sport game will be Evolve! The marketing department told me so! :lol:

I wonder is the playerbase for that game is already in decline or not.

Whatever happened to the fps arena game from the Trackmania guys?

It was less fun than hunting for ginger bottles to buy your lunch.
