Retribution Unveiled

The Retribution Website (thanks Frans) has first details on Retribution, an upcoming first-person shooter in the works at independent developer U-235 Studios (seemingly unrelated to Jaguar developers U-235, likewise named for the isotope powering Little Boy, the first atomic bomb). Described as a "partly funded project" that "needs community help," here's a description of the game, which uses Artificial Studios' "Reality" engine:
Your father an CID (Criminal Investigation Division) officer killed for getting too close, your mother murdered in cold blood. You watched the entire thing, now you're out for revenge. Assemble a crew or go it alone, follow the trail and finally get your revenge. Take on the Navy, Marine corps, drug lords, armed cilivians and more.

Hi All,

An interesting thread you have going here. Just wanted to add my two cents and a few points made here.

Firstly, thanks for pointing out the grammatical error on the main page. It has been rectified!

Secondly, for those saying 'where's the screen shots'. They are coming. I would like to point out that we actually hadn't added Retribution to any Gaming websites apart from 'Game Development' sites. It was picked up by an XBOX Gaming site, and has snowballed from there. We didn't intend to put ourselves on gaming sites until we neared the end of our prototype. Anyhow, it is generating quite a bit of interest, which can only be a good thing as far as getting decent backing from a publisher.

To address a few negative comments made, a partly funded prototype of this nature is still in the hundreds of thousands of dollars (larger than quite a few independent game budgets - and that's just the prototype). Making a good game costs a heck of a lot of money, just check out the engine licensing costs alone for next generation engines and you'll see what I mean!! For those suggesting Vaporware, all I can say is wait and see.

The storyline...again, wait and see. We're working on making it quite interesting and hopefully not your run of the mill game. Obviously we can't go into details as like a movie, you don't 'really' want to know what's going to happen before you watch it

Anyhow, we will be posting screen shots in the near future, keep an eye out!!
