Dark Shadows - Army of Evil Announced

Burian Media Enterprises announces Dark Shadows - Army of Evil, a PC-only first-person action/game set in a medieval fantasy environment planned for release in September or October. An official website is online as home to the game, this trailer offers a look at the game's first-person melee combat, and here's word:

The Indie-PC-Only Title is a Single Player First Person Shooter, in which the player takes on the role of a knight.

Dark Shadows - Army of Evil is about a horde of monsters in September 1362. They’ve been ravaging the country like a plague of locusts for over a year and are frightening the people with their scary get-up.

Most people still think they are monsters. But they are only in disguise. While you were away catching a runaway horse, these monsters stormed the castle. The King is injured and a woman named Katerina has been kidnapped.

She is the sister from one of the King’s guards. The bad thing is that you are in love with her after all. So the player needs to go on a long and bloody march through the country to rescue Katarina. The Medieval fantasy game has 19 levels of different areas and is showing gothic architectures.

A lot of effort was put into different atmospheres, depending on the location of the current level. The player can use up to 18 weapons, that can be found during exploration of the world. For example, he can throw stones, use a sword or flail, or use arrow and bow. The most time the player has to fight against the enemies.

Dark Shadows - Army of Evil also includes "Cinematic Effects". These 3D Blood Splatter Scenes are calculated in realtime. In these scenes the computer generates a random camera direction and angle, as well as for the blood effects.

The release for the Indie-Title is announced for September, October 2012. It supports english and german.

Hey, awesome, they can't even decide how to spell the names of their characters.

Best quote: "The most time the player has to fight against the enemies."

Ain't it the truth...

Am I the only one hoping that this would be a battle between Ash and Barnabus Collins?

I still think the only real way first person melee works is with a GOOD counter system, high damage and a STRICT 1 on 1 policy. Especially mount and blade proves that anything more than 1 guy against you and it becomes a clusterfuck of running backwards and swinging randomly.

If with well you mean hitting an enemy 17 times with a "powerful attack" .... which sounds and feels like hammering on kitchen ware.

I also like 3rd person action games...

I think they go together just fine. However, it needs to be the right style of combat. Slower and more methodical 1-on-1 combat, with an emphasis on directional and locational damage. If you're going for fast-paced, combo-driven combat against hordes of enemies, third-person is better.

I thought Skyrim worked pretty well actually.

As to this game, premise sounds good but after seeing that trailer it doesn't really hold promise.

Nah, bro. The only people who disagree with you are devs, for some reason. This has never been done correctly. There isn't a correct way to do it.
