Ladies and gentlemen, prepare your steam-powered gears and strap on your goggles because a new era of gaming is upon us! Shapeshifter Games, a AAA co-development studio formed by the talented minds behind Volition, has emerged from the depths of innovation to unveil their first project. And hold onto your top hats, my friends, because it's a steampunk extravaganza like no other.
In a tweet that sent shockwaves through the gaming community, inXile Entertainment revealed that Shapeshifter Games has been working with them on the highly-anticipated FPS RPG, Clockwork Revolution. It's a match made in gaming heaven, as both studios can trace their lineage back to the legendary Interplay Entertainment. Remember the days of FreeSpace and the mind-bending descent into the world of Descent? Well, those were the fruits of Interplay's labor.
Clockwork Revolution holds a special place in the hearts of the inXile team, as it reunites them with their old comrades from the Descent and FreeSpace days. It's like a reunion of steampunk pioneers, a gathering of gaming legends ready to embark on a new adventure.
But what exactly is Clockwork Revolution, you ask? Picture a world where time bends, gears whirr, and steampunk aesthetics reign supreme. Welcome to the steam-powered Metropolis of Avalon, a place where wonder and danger dance in perfect sync. This is a game that promises deep RPG mechanics that will make your head spin faster than a steam engine, and a narrative-driven choice-and-consequence system that will leave you questioning the very fabric of time itself.
As you traverse the cobbled streets of Avalon, you'll encounter a cast of eccentric characters, from clockwork automatons to mad inventors with wild hair and even wilder ideas. The city pulses with energy, its gears turning in harmony with the symphony of steam that fills the air. And oh, the airships! Behold the majestic airships that glide through the sky like mechanical angels, their propellers slicing through the clouds. It's a sight that will make your inner adventurer soar.
But let's not forget the heart of Clockwork Revolution: the gameplay. Prepare to wield an arsenal of fantastical steampunk weaponry, each piece a work of art in its own right. From clockwork pistols that spit out bullets with precision timing to steam-powered rifles that unleash a torrent of power, your arsenal will be the envy of every gearhead in Avalon. And as you navigate the intricacies of time manipulation, you'll discover hidden nooks and crannies, secret passages that lead to forgotten realms, and puzzles that will test the limits of your mechanical genius.
Clockwork Revolution is a testament to the power of collaboration, as Shapeshifter Games and inXile Entertainment join forces to create a gaming experience that will transport you to a world of clockwork wonders and steam-powered dreams. With the combined expertise of these two studios, you can expect a level of immersion that will make you feel as if you've stepped into a living, breathing steampunk universe.
So, my fellow time-traveling enthusiasts, mark your calendars and polish your goggles. Clockwork Revolution is on its way, ready to whisk you away on an adventure that defies the boundaries of time and space. Get ready to tinker with fate, unravel the secrets of Avalon, and rewrite the history of steampunk gaming. The revolution is coming, and it's time to join the ranks of the clockwork heroes.
As we eagerly await the release of Clockwork Revolution, let's raise our teacups (filled with the finest steampunk blend, naturally) to Shapeshifter Games and inXile Entertainment for their dedication to crafting a game that will ignite our imaginations and transport us to a world where gears and gadgets reign supreme.
