As a lover of boomer shooters, if there’s one thing I love about a good shooter, it’s that it forces me to move. yesterday, during the gamescomI could see stop dead, a different FPS that has two unique premises: the first is that you start without weapons and can only defend yourself using the objects on the map. The second is even more brutal: if you stop moving, you die instantly.
This is the game by Gridsnap Games, which its creators define as a mixture of DOOM, Portal and Mirror’s Edge. In the dystopian future, a rogue AI he wants to destroy his creators and has dragged you into doing his dirty work. With telekinetic powers and a mission in mind, Stop Dead sends you on a more than frantic mission.
Stop Dead is the FPS where, if you stop moving, you die
We could see it for the first time yesterday at Gamescom during the conference of the Future Games Show organized by the colleagues of Gamesradar, and, with the announcement of their demo, I couldn’t help but jump headlong into trying it out. Of course, it was a more than successful decision, and that is that the game has sunk its claws into me And now I need more.
The center of the action is, as one might expect, the movement. Without millions of powerful weapons like the ones I could see in Turbo Overkill, Stop Dead asks you to react first and shoot afterwards. Making use of slow cameras, slides that make you go faster and all the furniture in its levels, you will have to jump between rooftops, walk through sewers and go through offices full of enemies to achieve your goals. This is where it shines the Mirror’s Edge aspect of the game.
But not everything is inspired by the Electronic Arts game. Moving and dodging comes first, but it’s useless if you don’t have ways to take down those who are hunting you. Using telekinesis, you can make use of any object you see to throw it at your enemies.a bit like Control. Explosive barrels, futuristic items that will give you powers and even firearms to be shot with your mind, the game is a practically non-stop action party.
Stop Dead is coming out this october 5, and its creators are celebrating their appearance at the European video game fair in style. If you download the demo between August 23 and 30, you can win a PS5 or an Xbox Series X being the fastest or the player with the most points when completing the demo.
