Posted on April 29, 2011, CJ Miozzi New Shadows of the Damned Developer Diary (Video)
Shadows of the Damned is not your typical survival horror game. It’s a punk-rock shooter starring a demon hunter and his sidekick, a transforming skull. Sometimes he’s a gun, sometimes he’s a motorcycle, and sometimes he’s just a talking skull that reminds me an awful lot of C-3PO.
In this developer diary, Suda 51 and Shinji Mikami talk about Shadows of the Damned, and make mention of a long-barreled gun, the “Big Boner.”
Basically, it’s a 3rd-person shooting game. It’s close to Resident Evil 4 system-wise, but what’s unique about this one is the concept of darkness and light in the gameplay. The main character keeps losing his energy–or life–in the darkness and eventually dies. But the enemies become stronger in the darkness and become harder to defeat.
So Garcia (the main character) must find what is called a “light point” and shoot it with a special light shot with a gun, and light up the whole area.
Watch the video:
Shadows of the Damned is scheduled for release on X-Box 360 and Playstation 3 on June 21.
