Seriously...Why was I not informed...how did I not notice this...WHY DIDN'T ANYONE SAY ANYTHING.
Okay so either I've been living under a rock or the clever sods over at kdvgames have released a sequel to one of the more interesting and unique FPS titles ever...and they haven't told anyone. Because today I logged on to Steam as I do sometimes and noticed Perimeter 2 just sitting there NO METACRITIC...NO GAMEFAQS REVIEWS NO NOTHING.
The official forums are basically empty...this is almost like a phantom game that I'm nearly convinced if I ignore it it'll just vanish into oblivion. Now I realise Maelstrom was a bit odd at times and maybe Perimeter hasn't aged well (I haven't checked) but I'm fairly sure I'll pick this one up because I'll sum it up like this.
Imagine the planet terraforming in Spore...now make it an RTS...that's getting closer to what Perimeter is and it's a brilliant use of advance technology to shake up a genre that something like Fracture could never dream of.
So here's a sexy video complete with some nice laid back chip tune like sounds.
Keep in mind when viewing that the terrain is altered in real time with a tasty little voxel engine that you just know Ken Silverman would be pleased to hear about. So don't expect super ultra flashy graphics. Though I am interested to find if it stacks up to the original. If any one knows let me know!
