Memory searching game also features a perspective changing multiplayer experience.
The Farm 51's 'Get Even' already has a strong following thanks to its impressive teaser. The game is planned for a 2015 release on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC, but already, it's environment and art asset production which result from techniques that utilize 3D scanning to achieve "photo-realistic" visuals, have impressed the folks over at Xbox.
The [email protected] title has more in store than just single player experience, though the game primarily "revolves around a murder investigation that has you reliving memories, altering them, and getting clues that eventually help you solve the game’s many mysteries."
"From the moment we first loaded up 'Get Even,' we were blown away... Not content to simply make a gorgeous game, Farm 51 is using its talent to develop this mysterious first-person shooter into something that is about so much more than... well, shooting (but it’s got a ton of that, too)."
"By jumping back in time via a subject’s memory, we were able to relive the firefight, moving through it while the scene played out in slow-motion – until we could get to our target and snap a photo of the victim before he was shot. [Game Designer Kamil Bilczyński] teased the potential to relieve the memory again and again, making incremental progress until maybe – just maybe – we could actually save the victim."
Which sounds intriguing, especially from the perspective of investigating shootings, but it also sounds very solitary. Not so:
"Multiplayer mode ties into the bigger picture. Two campaigns tell the same story from both sides of the battle; enemies that you encounter during your progression through one story might be actual players working through the other story. Make no mistake: This is an intense, unforgiving game in all of the best ways."
