Revolution will have more "Mature" games based just on what the controller can do


Concerning the studio's newly announced title Sadness (working title), Orlowski firmly stated that the "project is confidential."

All I can say now is that it is going to be a gothic horror which will scare not with the amount of blood but sheer atmosphere. Imagine a game in which you do not use guns or knives but you will have to protect yourself with the objects you find exploring the ground – a stone, a stick, etc. Some examples of using the controller – you swing a torch with it to scare the rats off, you slit the throat (controller as a piece of glass or a knife); if you want to climb the wall you will have to hook a rope over the piece of a wall sticking out (controller serving as a lasso). And this is only the beginning. The game will be for single player and single player only. For an adult player with strong nerves. Let me mention that the scenario will have associations with narcolepsy, nyctophobia and paranoid schizophrenia.

It seems that more adult games will be finding their way onto Revolution in a really natural way. The controller just screams interaction, and who doesn't want to make a Horror or FPS game more immersive? The controller itself may end up getting rid of the "kiddy" Nintendo image faster than any add campaign could do.

Halo is over hyped. Its just not as good as everyone thinks it is. Revolution will get a lot of great FPS games, and the best ones will probably the no name games made by developers like Crossbeam studios and NIBRIS. I'm looking forward to UT 2007 on PC, the verdict is still out on wheather or not there will be a Revolution version. Probably not, but that game is going to rock the PC.
