Flying Wild Hog’s PC Shooter Is… Um

By John Walker on June 30th, 2011 at 4:15 pm.

It really does look pretty stunning. Whatever it is.

It’s a bit confusing when someone sends you a screenshot of an “unannounced” game. I’d say sending in-game pictures of it is pretty much announcing. And that game is, er, oh okay. The title hasn’t been announced yet. This is what we call in the trade, “stupid”. What we do know is that it’s a PC only shooter from new Polish developers Flying Wild Hog. And we’re promised that the shot is entirely in-game, and built with their own-made engine. Which is looking seriously impressive. We understand that there will be a name for this soon, and indeed we should be getting our hands on a copy of whatever it might be. So in the meantime, um, you’ve looked at a picture of a game that you can’t even know to remember you looked at. Sorry, I wasted your time.

    I guess they’re trying to build an aura of mystery.

  2. N says:

    Lol I thought this was from Blacklight actually…

    • Shuck says:

      Looking at the picture in my feed it took me a while to realize I hadn’t already seen this picture the other day… oh dear.

    • Joe Duck says:

      I was coming to the comments to say it looks exactly like Blacklight.
      Yay for art direction!

    • Stormbane says:

      I skipped over this the first time because I thought it was Blacklight as well.

    • studenteternal says:

      My first thought was another Prey 2 screenshot, but now that you mention it I can see the black light similarities. Not really the best first image to try to build a brand around is it.

    Did it come in a larger resolution?

    Edit: Ah, now I can click it.

  4. Zelius says:

    Ehm… Deus Ex?

  5. Hmm-Hmm. says:

    Yeah, me too. It’s uncanny, really.

    -edit- Gah, that was meant to be a response to Joe Duck’s comment.

  6. KauhuK says:

    A bit cyberpunkish style there but while it looks good it’s not that impressive. Then again it’s just one screenshot.

  7. Shodex says:

    Well… it’s pretty.

  8. Echo Black says:

    “Flying Wild Hog”? They’re trying to dethrone “People Can Fly” for zaniest-named polish softhouse

  9. Ian says:

    For the purposes of this thread, and future RPS articles until it has a name, I suggest we call it “Teh Mansh00tz.”

  10. ResonanceCascade says:

    Hey there good lookin’, you got a name?

  11. jerkstoresup says:

    I can’t wait for, uh, that!

  12. zergrush says:

    I’ll be disappointed if it’s not possible to get in that live jpg girls place.

    Seems a distopian future where nanobots have manage to get the right to vote. And humans have lost the votation for building height limits, use of cars inside the city,and others.
    But humans are not happy, and resort to weapons to fight against democracy.

  14. Anarki says:

    Needs more Blade Runner

  15. JerreyRough says:

    Its got a robot “toy”! Oh snap!

  16. Jad says:

    You know how many bands have an eponymous debut album, naming their first album after themselves? Well, Flying Wild Hog should just call this game “Flying Wild Hog”. Seems like a good enough name, right?

    • JFS says:

      Why not call it “Flying Cyber Hog”, you now, as a *pun*. Plus, it’d describe the game.

  17. Baboonanza says:

    ‘And we’re promised that the shot is entirely in-game, and built with their own-made engine.’
    Sounds like bug-city to me!

    So I just spent $299.99 reading this article.. Any chance of a refund?

  19. Ohle says:

    Oh, you, Mr. Walker. See, we’re going to announce the game quite soon, but I convinced these fine Polish chaps to release a screenshot before other, not-so-exciting stuff like an official website and logo and all that jazz is actually ready. And now you turn it into some sort of groanfest on RPS. Aw. Sadfaced Tom, signing off.

    Lemme tell you this: scenes look way hotter, when projectiles cut the air and things start to blow or collapse :)

  22. ZIGS says:

    Speaking of Polish developers, any news on Afterfall: Insanity? Yes, I realize this is entirely off-topic

  23. airtekh says:

    Ooo purty.

  24. Bodminzer says:

    Someone’s going to trip over that massive slinky in the road.

  25. PopeJamal says:

    If this was some Triple-A dev house like Crytek or UBI, you’d be slobbering all over their man-parts. But because it’s a little dev house from Poland, you get all smarmy. Classy.

    I guess they should just be happy that you even graced them with a story.

    Or maybe it’s more of that British “humor” that us Americans just aren’t smart enough to understand.

    • Bodminzer says:

      That’s our RPS. Always fucking with the little guy.

    • Bodminzer says:

      But really, they should be bloody happy they got a story at all seeing as they offered no information at all besides a screenshot. Games blogs are not your PR agency, no matter who you are.

    • Raiyan 1.0 says:

      For context, Respawn also released a single image about their next game as a teaser.

      http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/111363-Respawn-Releases-an-Awfully-Blurry-Teaser-Image

      RPS has covered the small guy’s single image, and not the big EA published single (albeit blurry) image.

    • Handsome Dead says:

      there are no words, really.

    • Handsome Dead says:

      alternative music

    • Ricc says:

      It’s cute how those guys think they can do the same drip-feed marketing, that bigger publishers do. Really, they shouldn’t. Smaller guys should show as much as they can and not expect sites or fans to come swarming to them, because of one screenshot.

      Kieron talked about how to use journalists in an efficient (symbiotic) manner. This is not it.

  26. Danny says:

    What the bloody hell is that *thing* with the ARMS on the road? Do we think it’s trying to kill us?

  27. DethonRells says:

    In the future: Jumbo-trons will just be on buildings just because technology.

  28. Handsome Dead says:

    blade runner was pretty cool film

  29. DeCi says:

    Blade runner is my best guess.

  30. PiP999 says:

    “Sorry, I wasted your time.”

    That’s impossible because my time is worthless.

  31. Shadow Aspect says:

    Well, already there are 3-4 posts from the devs in here so that’s promising.

  32. Skusey says:

    Stupid way of revealing your game, but “JPG Girls”? Awesome.

    I’m rereading Neuromancer at the moment, and thus I approve of this image. I’m looking forward to more information on this game.

      Me too! Fist bump!
      I’m pretty interested in this. I really hope they play to their strengths of being an obscure Polish dev, and make something new and exciting.

  34. wazups2x says:

    PC exclusive. Nice!

  35. ColOfNature says:

    Isn’t that Future City D4 again? Their Tourist Board deserves a raise.

  36. Gaff says:

    It looks like Neocron crossed with Westwood’s Blade Runner game, with maybe a little Deus Ex thrown in for good measure.

    One to watch I think. Those Poles are coming up with some good shooters (Painkiller, Bulletstorm).

  37. Wulf says:

    The screen really is ubiquitous.
