For those complaining about the jungle... it's NOT a jungle game. Yes, you go there at one point, but you also go to the desert and explore tombs.
Unreal Engine 3-powered FPS going for an Indiana Jones vibe.
Painkiller Hell & Damnation developer The Farm 51 will release FPS Deadfall Adventures this June, publisher Nordic Games has announced.
Deadfall Adventures will be released on July 30 for the Xbox 360 and PC. The Unreal Engine 3-powered game cites Indiana Jones and Saturday-morning matinee adventures a primary inspiration, and the game promises a similar blend of puzzle-solving, exploration, and shooting that has made Naughty Dog's Uncharted series so celebrated.
The game is set in 1938 and casts players as Lee Quartermain, who has to battle Nazis to track down an ancient artifact from an Egyptian temple. Quartermain will be joined by US agent and former colleague Jennifer Goodwin.
- "Well, we made about 6 Painkiller releases/updates. People are tired of that. We just can't milk it anymore. What do we do now?"
-"Uhh, uhh... aww man, I don't know. We still develop games? I've just been watching a bunch of movies when I come to the office. Just finished the Indiana Jones movies. Those are great."
*look at each other*
Was there ever a good Indiana Jones game? I remember one on the Mac in the early nineties. It played like Hero's Quest and tales of Monkey Island... which is very similar to The Walking Dead game series.
I never did finish that Indiana Jones game. One of the few, ever.
I was just thinking about Pitfall yesterday. I remember this game on the Atari, when I was about 7, and the coolest part was that Pitfall Harry could turn around and run in the other direction, it was amazing. I didn't see that again until Super Mario 2 on the NES.
@gatsbythepig Uh...yes. Never played Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis? Infernal Machine? Emperor's Tomb? The Last Crusade point & click tie-in? All of those are essentials.
If the gunplay feels right, the settings aren't corridor like and there's a decent amount of exploration and good puzzles then I'm game.
Here's the trailer http://youtu.be/5qRJwxXKWLA
James Lee Quartermain, huh? As in Allan Quartermain's relative?
SO... it's going to have, dare I say "borrowed", elements from past successful movie and video game franchises, with a title that for a split second made me think it was a PITFALL remake/sequel... could be interesting but so far, not so good.
Why is everyone complaining now? Just about everything has been done and as for Jungle FPS games theres only like 3 I can think of: Crysis, Far Cry 1 and 3 . It actually sounds genre blending and other than "the jungle setting" it sounds nothing like those games. Just be glad it's not Call of Duty: The Jungle Book.
Is this game really necessary? How many more games about a dude holding a fucking gun in the mother fucking jungle. do we need? This drive me so crazay.
I remember the Jungle stage in Goldeneye. You crashed landed in the jungle, hiding behind trees for cover. Fun times. Been done. What are you going to add that I haven't seen in the last 2 decades and more of FPS saturation.
Indiana Jones-inspired-FPS? Wow, this could be awesome! I like treasure hunt mission (that include a bit of platforming) on Far Cry 3, if there's a game that focus on that, it could be an awesome new IP.
If they do this right this could be the game that makes their reputation... errr... I should say "fixes" their reputation (Damnation!) :P
Sorry, but this is a terrible and unprofessional article. Calling The Farm 51 "Painkiller dev" is misleading. Also, what the hell has Uncharted got to do with this game? It's not even the same genre. Indiana Jones-inspired, yes. Uncharted, f*** no. Uncharted is a rip-off in and of itself, thematically and gameplay-wise, thus it can't possibly inspire anything.
@UpInFlames your last sentence is idiotic to say the least... thats like saying no music before the first sound of beats... cave man style can inspire anything... its like saying beethoven couldnt have inspired anything because bach came before him... e.t.c., e.t.c.
@UpInFlames Uncharted is the offspring of Gears Of War & Tomb Raider mating together.
@Ladiesman17 aaww butthurt microsoft fan?
@doraemonllh1989 @Ladiesman17 i know youre a troll but heres some logic for you... with the ps4 architecture being much more so like a pc, say like a 360 is, it isnt outside the realm of possibility that it could be ported in the future. also enjoy your games why make it a point to make sure others cant enjoy theirs?... oh, right troll.. well then nevermind.
I'm intrigued! I also see that it is (at least in terms of consoles) exclusive to xbox. If this game is successful, it might become a series exclusive to the nextbox, who knows.
Interesting they chose the name of Quartermain. Wonder if this will then relate to the adventures of Allan Quartermain as that is also a series of adventures. I'll wait for more on this, as it could be a fantastic, old fashioned adventure, but I am already intrigued by their choice name for their character.
It is a direct reference - see my comment below, or check Nordic Games' site...
