Pyromaniacs, rejoice!While Infernal may not be as polished as other PC shooters we've previewed here in recent weeks, it does have three very good things going for it: (1) the main character is possesed by the devil and (2) there is probably no plot whatsoever -- only explosions and lots of fiery hellflames of death. It never gets old.
The third one is the truly kicker: This game supports Aegia's much hyped PPU physics card, so you'll be able to see hundreds of detailed wood particles and flying chunks of metal things filling your screen when you bump into any small object. The game seems on track to ship around the middle of April for fourty beans. Here's the obligatory PR blurb:
Infernal, developed by Polish studio Metropolis, is a third-person shooter for Windows PC. The game tells the story of Ryan Lennox, a fallen angel, who has been recruited by hell to restore the balance between Good and Evil. Infernal makes use of 'Ageia PhysX software,' enhancing the realistic effects of the game, and also supports the 'Ageia PhysX card' for even more stunning visuals.
One would think a game with the devil would feature topless women on every screen or at least star Al Pacino. I'm disappointed. We'll have to take it for a spin before rejecting their application into the cool kid's club. (Not to be confused with the About page cult). Massive damage gallery below:
