Today, Blackpowder Games, a studio made up of former Monolith Productions (F.E.A.R.) developers, unveiled their first game. It’s an atmospheric, black and white first person shooter called Betrayer, and it looks genuinely creepy. I’m glad we’re getting anything from part of the team that brought us the excellent F.E.A.R. series, but I’m doubly happy it’s a pseudo-horror shooter, since that’s certainly within their wheelhouse.
The game is set in a small Virginia colony during the turn of the 17th century, where freaky ghosts and assorted other creatures abound. It’ll come to Steam Early Access on August 14th for $15. Check out the announcement trailer and a batch of high contrast screens, after the break.
