An interesting new game just popped up in my inbox today that we definitely have to share with you.
Indie start-up, Caracal Games, have just announced their first in development project as Downward, a new first person, open world parkour game being built on the Unreal Engine 4.
Here’s the official description of the game:
Downward is a landscaping open-world adventure set during the Middle Ages, after that the events depicted in the Book of Revelation of St. John took their course.In the game we will impersonate a mysterious wanderer during its pilgrimage through the Est across the ancient and majestic ruins of the last civilizations of an almost inhabited world. This journey is inspired by the wanderer’s thirst for knowledge, which guides him to search for some strange artifacts, somehow linked to the End already occurred.
The game is described as having a heavy focus on exploration as players explore the environment and uncover its mysteries and secrets. The game will include puzzles and other “secondary activities” that Caracal have not discussed yet. To put it bluntly, the game is not a walking simulator according to the Downward’s official website.
We’ve inquired about an interview with the developers to learn more about the game, which is scheduled to arrive on the PC platform during the Winter of 2016, so this one’s a bit of a ways off. Console version are a possibility according to the developer, but not confirmed at this point in time.
You can checkout the first screenshots from the game just below. Be sure to let us know what you think of them in the comments section. Stay tuned to OnlySP for further information on Downward as we have it.
