Well, this is encouraging.

This definitely has the same atmosphere and feel as Bioshock-- same claustrophobia, same story-based FPS, same creepiness... This has potential. And the controls are interesting, too. The 3D map took a little while to grow on me, but I think I like it.

It's not a shooter, it's survival horror. TOTALLY DIFFERENT GENRE.

Bioshock had kind of a lot of survival horror elements, saving only the respawn tanks.

Also, it was preposterously easy and you had gallons of ammo, and you were never in any danger at all.

... hmm, maybe I should play survival horror games not on "Easy."

It's like someone wrote Bioshock with me in mind: The hero is one bad-ass motherfuckin' engineer, cuttin' apart alien bug-eyed monsters with his plasma torch, fixin' things on a planet-cracker mining ship!

Seriously, if this does not end in me cracking at least one planet, I will feel cheated.

You betcha!

(What, now you're an engineer from Alaska?)

Ah, no, but I do work with two.

Also, the stomping move is so very very satisfying in this game.

Oh, this is seriously fucked up.
