Indie Russian developer Exquisitor42 has confirmed that its 2.5D first-person shooter, Project Odin, is still in development, which comes after long radio silence. The PC game in question will receive news sometime soon.
Although Steam Greenlight is dead, games from it are still surfacing and nearing completion. One of those games happen to be Project Odin, a throwback to classic action movies and games.
Project Odin is a game that’s trying something different and aims to be a 2.5D shooter. The dev team first premiered Project Odin on Steam Greenlight back in 2017, and managed to pass the voting phase on April 6th, 2017.
Running on the Unreal Engine 4, Project Odin sees a bitter ex-marine from the NAVY take up a job as a security guard. In the warehouse of the governmental space science research center (SSRC), a tragic terrorist attack unfolds on Christmas day.
In addition to the story, the group of unknown terrorists attack the headquarters with a dangerous type of gas to neutralize all staff, but after some time, the ex-marine suddenly wakes and the terrorists are said to be in for a real surprise.
You can check out older gameplay footage of Project Odin that is said by the dev team to mirror classic 1990’s movies and games.
Not too long ago, one of the team members made mention to a curious fan that development is still underway as of 2018. Features that Exquisitor42 wants to add to Project Odin includes blood, dual wielding weapons, Kung-Fu, and Gun Kata tricks.
Graphics are said to see an overhaul, but it’s unclear how much of that will change. As it stands now, polish seems to be a top priority, which hopefully pays off in the long run.
