GAMBITIOUS DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT AND DEVELOPER SOBAKA ANNOUNCE BRUTE-FORCE BRAWLER REDEEMER
– Top-down, hand-to-hand action game launching this year on Windows PC via Steam, GOG.com –
Gambitious Digital Entertainment has revealed independent developer Sobaka’s Redeemer, a top-down, close-quarters action game coming later this year to Windows PC through Steam and GOG.com.
Redeemer’s single-player story follows a former elite operative whose violent past finally catches up with him after years of living in hiding within a remote mountain monastery. Punch, kick, hammer, hack, smash and shoot through hordes of enemies on a merciless mission for justice against the shadowy corporate forces you once worked for. From hard-hitting stealth takedowns to over-the-top environmental kills, every move bursts with raw energy and visceral sound design.
@MrWhite: yea, i think they did a really good job with that scene. At first i tried to remember the shots of her from the original to figure out if they re-used footage before the angles changed more. (2 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, that's a good point. It's still noticeable, but it's literally so close that any kind of anomaly will be spotted and give that uncanny valley. The rendering though is flawless. (2 Hours ago)
as for Tarkin, i think they should have gone with the stand-in actor with some make-up/prosthetics. just looking at him in the making-of material he looks close enough. (2 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: she was kinda stiff/robotic in the original BR too. Like a doll, which they obviously aimed for, which helps sell the 2049 version. (2 Hours ago)
The other scenes that had all CG models of the actors and actress were so well done, I didn't realise it was entirely all rendered. Joi for example is almost completely CG overlaid with the actress. (2 Hours ago)
