Cryostasis Trailer


Cryostasis is one of the most promising Russian games currently in development, and publishers 1c know it. They were allowing hands-on play of the opening level at this year's KRI (Russian's GDC) in Moscow last month. Needless to say, I was there and... well, I'm going to preview this in some more depth in a the coming weeks, along with an interview from developers Action Forms. So let's just take a look at that trailer for now. The Bioshock influence is strong here...

Definitely a first person shooter videogame, but the total lack of dialogue and heavy atmosphere of weirdness to seem to send it scuttling in the right direction.

There's quite a lot of footage we've already seen here, and it's a shame that Action Forms haven't shown much of the flashback sequences. The fact that we've seen much the same material several times now might be cause for concern: it could be too short? Too repetitive? Action Forms impressed me with the creativity of what they demonstrated at KRI, so perhaps they can keep it up for a full-length game. I guess we'll find out in October.
