Alpha Prime Demo

A new English-language demo for Alpha Prime is now available, offering another sample of Black Element's first-person shooter (Czech and Russian demos for the game were released late last year). The origins of the two-level demo aren't very clear, as it's available from as many sources as most releases, but the download can be found on ActionTrip, Gameplay Monthly, and Strategy Informer.

"forte, forte. The heart is up the spout."

couldn't get the loader to work right, so i put the boxes up by hand, fun demo though! Forgot to about the bullet time.
the only acceptable dialog is with the american guy at the very end with the huge boots on. I bet he gets tired of walking around.

I have framerates averaging 120 everywhere with everything jacked up. But the gameplay is average. The graphics are colorful but I don't see anything new. However the game seems polished and very competent. Props to the devs.

No mp in demo.

Any basic MP for this demo? I'm guessing no...

This game is supposed to support the PhysX card. Even with out that the demo seems pretty good.

PS. there was also a community created widescreen fix & support for 1920X1200 etc... for the previous demo.

It's actually quite fun. Very colorful, smooth, etc. I agree the dialogs sucked but then this is probably not native English. The weapons seem weak. The game reminded me of DOOM 3, FEAR, etc. I won't get the full game due to lack of free time.

The combat is quite fun but the dialogue....oh the fucking dialogue.

Why? Are you a fish?

No. The movement is just more natural and smooth with a FOV of ~100. With at 90 it is more like you are just watching it through a camera ala television in first person. With the FOV of ~100 it gives more of the feel of looking through the persons/creatures eyes and not a camera. *shrugs* to each is own I guess.

The default field of view (in most games 90) just seems to unnatural, I always pull it back to ~100.

Was fun. But the default "field of view" drives me crazy. All games do this. But in games with consoles you can zoom it out some. The default field of view (in most games 90) just seems to unnatural, I always pull it back to ~100.

It's out in a few European territories. English-language version will only be available as a digital download, as far as I know.

Supposedly it'll be available for download May 1st: http://www.sprocketidea.com/

Tried this out yesterday. Not bad, sort of like Half-Life meets Doom 3. Looks pretty nice, and it ran well on high detail settings on my older system.

Enjoyable - it has bullet-time time too, if you care - but not really original. You also get a hacking device that you can use to over-ride electronic equipment and turrets, but you don't use it much in the demo.

The Italian guy is funny too.
