Survivor Announced

Replay Studios unveils plans for a "reality gaming" project titled Survivor:

German game development Studio, Replay Studios, located in Hamburg announces 3rd person action game Survivor. Survivor will be developed for all systems, PC and consoles. The Game establishes the all new genre Reality Gaming.

SURVIVOR is a 3rd-person Disaster Survival Game with highly interactive locations, based on famous, authentic-historical disaster scenarios. In independent game episodes, the player will experience some of the most dramatic disasters of the 20 - 21st century. The original single player game concept has never been seen before. We call this unique genre REALITY GAMING. Anyone who likes to know how it feels like being aboard the Titanic after she has hit the iceberg, could go for a try.

Survivor offers GTA like player freedom game play mechanics that forces the player to participate in the most dramatic and well known disaster scenarios: sinking of the Titanic, Hurricane Andrew, 9/11, Hiroshima and the giant earthquake in Mexico in 1985. While many subquests must be fulfilled within the disaster scenarios, the main goal of the game is always pure survival.

For more information, screenshots, concept art, logos, a downloadable game concept document and a web forum please refer to www.replaystudios.de/survivor

The events in Florida only happened a short while ago. The screenshots and information on their site show at least half a year's worth of work.

Well, i wasn't entirely serious. But, it's very hard to actually tell how much work they have done, surely? The only screenshots are close up shots, without anything to really indicate how much is programmed or even made. More importantly, they're actively looking for a publisher, which to me almost often means very early development (i.e. need to secure financing, especially as they don't seem to have released any games yet).

EDIT; oh, the game concept doc is dated August 2004. Assuming it's not a recently dated version for the plebs, that indicates to me it is 'inspired' by recent events.

Anyways, I should probably emphasise i don't want to be too harsh on the guys here. It is an original idea, good on them if they can work it, but it just strikes me as also being potentially disasterous (hehe) and somewhat of cashing in on recent tragedies - specifically the 2004 store fire in Paraguay, which i think is just too recent and thus a bit tasteless.....

what my main worry would be that they cash in on any attention they get for having the likes of 9/11, hiroshima, etc.
