Areal Videos

The Areal Kickstarter page has a couple of videos from West Games to support the fundraising for their survival/horror shooter and to combat doubts about this project's legitimacy. They offer an Anomaly zone prototype trailer, saying this was made in just two weeks, and prominently warning that this does not represent the final quality of the game. There is also a teaser 2 video with the developers discussing the game and a look at some play testing. And since nothing concerning Areal can pass without a touch of controversy, Rock, Paper, Shotgun has screenshots some backers are saying show that the environments in the video come from a off-the-shelf Unity engine asset pack. Here's part of what the developers at West Games say their goals are for the videos:

We know how to make games and are very passionate about Areal. What we've found out though, is that making and launching a Kickstarter is much harder than actually making the game! One of the biggest mistakes that we made was focusing too much on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and not showing footage of Areal itself. This raised a lot of negativity in the community, and many accused us of being a fraud. We just wanted to show people that we were responsible for creating S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. We were completely unprepared for the wave of negativity that surrounded our Kickstarter and honestly, were more than a little discouraged.

But that did not break our will to make Areal, and it did not break our desire to create an awesome game that players around the world will enjoy.
