Bigmoon Entertainment had a fairly recognizable presence at this year’s GamesCom. They introduced two new games, Syndrome and Demons Age at this year’s event in Cologne, Germany.
Syndrome appears to be a sci-fi, exploration shooter. It looks a lot like a mix of Dead Space and Doom fused together. You can check out the trailer below to get an idea of what the game is like.
It looks like it could be a low-budget, stealth, exploration shooter. The trailer reveals that players can use objects around the environment to distract the monsters, or simply blast them down like a typical shooter.
The trick to Syndrome is that the game only gives players limited ammunition, so picking your shots becomes vital.
The objective of the game is to explore the ship and find out exactly where all these deformed monstrosities are coming from, and hopefully put an end to it while surviving the whole ordeal.
The second game that Bigmoon Entertainment showcased was Demons Age. They have a short trailer up for that title as well.
The trailer above was not received well by the community at all. The stiff animations from the characters and the lack of showing the gameplay – other than quick glimpses of the hexagonal combat and a whole lot of running around – kind of made it difficult to get a decent feel for Demons Age. It appears to be like Diablo in a Fallout-style, medieval fantasy universe.
Demons Age, the turn-based RPG, will be available for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC as well. The release date is listed “Coming Soon”. While it certainly looks rough around the edges in the promotional trailer, if there’s enough content in the game and the gameplay itself is solid, then I would be willing to overlook the limited production values.
Bigmoon kind of reminds me a little bit of Gamecock or Southpeak Interactive. A smaller studio with ambitious goals on a tiny budget.
