Yet another game on the famous CryEngine is in the works now. German developer CryTek’s CryEngine which most people remember as the one used in the Crysis franchise is no stranger to indie devs or small time studios.
Zomboko Entertainment is another of those indie companies. The company’s creator and the only employee Artyom Mironov is working on an upcoming First Person Shooter called Crossing the Line.
The game puts the players in the shoes of a man who starts to fight evil in a mystical world in order to rescue his beloved. The gameplay involves the character’s ability to be able to move between the world of the living and the dead.
Here is what Zomboko Entertainment had to say about this project:
“Though, you can’t do it at any moment, shifting will be availabe only after a certain sequence of player actions. But don’t overuse this ability – very frequent visits of the dead world could hurt the main character or even kill him. Initially, the visual style was intended to be depressive, dark but later, it was decided to make more cinematic and realistic everything around the player for deeper immersion into game world and its events.
The developer has also released few screenshots of the game which can be seen here. The game does sound interesting and highly ambitious however only time will tell what one man can do in this stale and saturated FPS genre.
