You may remember Cadenza Interactive from Sol Survivor, the tower defense game that captured Jim’s attention last year. They’ve recently announced their second game, Retrovirus. It is, they say, “a modern take on the classic six degrees of freedom shooter”, made only on PC. Ooh, like Descent? we asked when Jim spotted it last week. The moving pictures below help to explain.
Well, no they don’t really. I lied. I lied to you to make you click, to give us one more page impression. It’s a completely meaningless teaser that shows a ship floating about a bit. Which is a bit rubbish, really. But because we liked their last game, we’re still interested in their next. Also, we’re interested in more Descent.
It’s currently in the pre-Alpha stages, which I think is around about the point you think of the idea in the shower. However, they plan to blog the entire process of the development, so you’ll be able to keep an eye on when they start writing stuff down on paper and so on.
