Publisher Prime Matter and developer Mad Head Games have released a nine-minute pre-alpha gameplay video of recently announced science-fiction third-person shooter Scars Above.
Here is an overview of the game, via Mad Head Games:
Scars Above is a challenging, immersive third-person shooter inspired by modern type action-adventure games. It takes the genre staples, such as the rewarding feeling of overcoming difficulty, and combines it with a compelling and intricate story, meticulous and lavish world design, and a living, breathing ecosystem to explore and endure. This is a game of mystery and discovery.
Something strange has entered Earth’s orbit; an object alien and unknowable, made out of matter that seems not to obey the laws of physics—the Metahedron. As a part of a hastily gathered group of astronauts and scientists sent off to explore it, your fate takes a jarring turn as you awaken in another world—dazed, alone on an alien planet… but determined to stay alive. Our protagonist, Kate, is not a battle-hardened soldier or super-powered assassin—but a resourceful, capable, and strong-willed individual with the will to endure any hardship. She is, first and foremost, a scientist: someone that uses their mind as a weapon—and with this weapon, Kate is determined to survive. She represents the best in humanity: our ability to overcome fear with curiosity, pain with determination, and darkness with reason.
Scars Above is due out for consoles and PC in 2022. Specific consoles have yet to be announced.
