Bedlam is a first-person shooter about first-person shooters, based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Brookmyre. Alec has not only played the game, which is available in Early Access, he’s read the book as well. I’m awaiting confirmation as to whether he’s worn the t-shirt.
A fleeting inspection of Alec’s analysis and the freshly baked trailer below swiftly disproves my earlier statement – Bedlam is mostly about shooting baddies scattered across levels that riff on Quake, Call of Duty, Hexen and the like, but there are also interludes that take place in other pastures of gaming history. Pill-chomping in a neon maze and blasting alien spacecraft both feature. Is it to much to hope for a first-person take on definitive isometric horror game, Ant Attack?
