There are very few details in the press release pertaining to the The Surge other than that it is a hardcore RPG with innovative new combat mechanics. Additionally, the first details on the game will only be presented during pre-booked behind closed door interviews. No gameplay will be shown at Gamescom this year, however.

Housemarque Reveals First Non-Arcade Game, Stormdivers

Housemarque Stormdivers

In today’s talk at Reboot Develop, indie developer Housemarque revealed its latest game, Stormdivers.

Few details on the project have been revealed so far, but it will use Unreal Engine 4 and have a focus on multiplayer-based gameplay.

Earlier this year, the developer announced a pivot away from the arcade genre that has, heretofore, defined its games, including Super Stardust, Resogun, and Nex Machina. During the talk, the speakers, Housemarque CEO Ilari Kuittinen and Head of Publishing Mikael Haveri also went into more detail about the decision to move away from the primary source of its success.

The developers mentioned that the studio has felt typecast, first in its early years as being focused on snowboarding games and more recently as the torch-bearers for the arcade genre. Despite having met with success in its most recent endeavours, Haveri explored some of the reasons behind the move away from arcade, including mentioning that “the popularity of the genre is winding down,” comparing it to flight simulators and point-and-click adventures, which have similarly dropped off in recent years, and that its games are unable to compete effectively within the current market.

Kuittinen and Haveri also revealed some of the unrealised concepts that the team has worked on, including a standard racing game and a zombie game.
