Yesterday, many of us were jawing excitedly about Phosphor Games' potentially magnificent superhero game, Awakened. The concept trailer was pretty rough, so here's a second one. It's still in a very early, unpolished state, but it looks a lot better.
No Sigur Ros this time, unfortunately. However, it is replaced by a teleporting woman who does a series of impressively animated acrobatic jumps and also has a ninja sword. Fair trade.
Everything about this game seems to speak to me. A bleak scenario, contemporary superheroes, and tons of customization. Throw in some violence and mutants on the side, and we've got ourselves a party.
Awakened is still in need of a publisher, but hopefully the game has generated enough buzz that somebody's going to pick it up soon.
