Prey For The Gods Is All Very Shadow Of The Colossus

Peep this vid

Prey for the Gods [official site] wants to remind you of Shadow of the Colossus, wants you to compare it to Shadow of the Colossus, and wants you to go round telling your chums "It's like Shadow of the Colossus but with snow and on PC." Because it is, really.

With a desolate land, a young hero, and boss monsters large enough that you'll need to scale them to murder them, it's not shy about its source material. If Team Ico's PlayStation 2 classic had ever received an official PC release, it might be decried as a rip-off. Instead, it's more something folks have waited years for. Watch this:

Developers No Matter Studios explain the premise:

"In Prey for the Gods, you play a lone hero sent to the edge of a dying world to discover the mystery behind a never-ending winter. Arriving with only the clothes on your back, you must survive the colossal dangers that you encounter. To restore balance and reclaim the land from the brink, you will be faced with questions that not even a God knows the answer to."

Presumably those questions include "What happens after I murder you?" That's a hazy one for gods to answer.

I'm up for some Shadow of the Colossus-y fun, though I'll restrain my excitement for now. It's awfully ambitious, and No Matter are only three folks working in their evenings. Still, what they have to show so far is pretty nice. It'll be on Windows and Mac, though we've no firm word of a release date yet.
