DECEIVER - philosophical shooter - trailer, demo, Kickstarter launch
Launch your spider drone at walls, ceilings, and enemy heads in this pre-apocalyptic philosophical shooter. Explore a vast cyberpunk city. Shoot things in the face. Question your basic beliefs.
The story of DECEIVER is about impending doom. How do people react to it? Do they give up? Fight it? Continue life as normal? Enjoy themselves as much as possible before the end? Or in the end, sacrifice themselves to save someone they love? Maybe all of the above.
Explore a vast cyberpunk city using first-person parkour movement mechanics. Fight with other online players for control of the city by finding and unlocking terminals, which allow you to deploy and control spider drones.
The game features true 3D combat, with spider drones crawling on walls and ceilings and launching themselves at enemies. It sports a vector geometry art style inspired by the 1982 sci-fi film "Tron", and powered by a custom engine. Everything is built from vectors, right down to the font.
