Exile On Moon Street: Capsized


Sipping morning tea, I find myself looking at the newly announced game due in 2010 (via Steam) from Alientrap Software, who you may know as the developer of the free open-source shooter Nexuiz. In first few seconds I'm thinking "Metroid" or "Turrican", and kinda shrugging. A few later, I think "Exile". And then I notice its name. It's totally someone trying to do a modern take on the ancient Physics-lead exploration game Exile. From ambition alone, I suspect this bears close watching. I suspect many of American readers won't be aware of Exile. It's... well, in Edge's retro reviews, writing about old games as if Edge would have if they were around then (with the benefit of hindsight) they gave their precious ten to three only: Elite, Super Mario Bros and Exile. That's the sort of company it keeps. Footage follows.

Looks like Exile to me. Let's hope I'm right and they can pull it off. They're currently looking for Playtesters, if that's your sort of thing.
