Blackpowder Games Reveal Betrayer

Posted by GG Goblin On August - 6 - 2013

First-person action adventure PC game coming from creative team behind No One Lives Forever and F.E.A.R.

 


 
“We wanted to get back to crafting games more intuitively,” said Creative Director Craig Hubbard. “There’s a sense of discovery and excitement when you navigate by instinct rather than market research and open yourself up to opportunities that arise during development.”

 
Betrayer washes you ashore in the New World in 1604, where you’re expecting to join a struggling English colony on the Virginia coast. Instead you find only ghosts and mysteries in a land drained of color and life. You’ll build up an arsenal of weaponry including muskets, crossbows and throwing axes, collecting untold treasures along the way. Chart your own course through an untamed wilderness teeming with danger and discovery as you search for survivors and unravel the colony’s many mysteries, including the identity of the strange, silent woman in red who helps from afar.

 
Betrayer is set to release as a Steam Early Access title in August. The game is powered by the latest award-winning Unreal Engine 3 technology. For more information about Blackpowder Games and Betrayer, visit the official site: www.blackpowdergames.com

  1. Betrayer Early Access | Said,

    [...] Blackpowder Games’ Betrayer is now available on Steam Early Access, and has a discount until August 21st.   As promised, Betrayer is now available as part of the Steam Early Access program, and can be picked up here with a discount of 10% until August 21st.   “We are excited to get feedback while there’s still time to react to it and make the game better,” said game designer Craig Hubbard. “There are only six of us, so being able to hear from gamers who are motivated to help us deliver the best possible experience while we’re still in active development will help us prioritize on the fixes and features that will have the biggest impact.”   Betrayer is an eerie first person action adventure game that takes you to the New World at the turn of the 17th century. The game focuses on exploring, unraveling mysteries, collecting loot to spend on better weaponry, and engaging in brutal combat against deadly enemies.   “We deliberately chose to make a game that doesn’t explain everything to you. You’ll find clues about what’s happening and what befell the colony, but it’ll be up to you to put the pieces together. It’s challenging to strike a balance where players are getting just the right amount of information. Too much and you can lose the sense of accomplishment. Too little and it can get frustrating. We’re hoping the community can help us with the fine tuning.”   [...]
