Prodeus from the duo at Bounding Box Software is looking intense and it's coming soon! Today it's been confirmed for an initial release into Early Access on November 10.

As a reminder Prodeus is supposed to be a retro-themed shooter but re-imagined using modern rendering, while still retaining that classic look and feel. They're going for a "AAA experience" while adhering to some technical limits to give it that authentic feel. Expect to see flying blood and pixels, colourful lighting, and plenty of user-made content with the included level editor.

They gave GameSpot an exclusive trailer, which you can see below:

We managed to catch up with Bounding Box today to have a quick chat about it. They've confirmed that Linux is still planned and coming for Early Access, which is good since it was clearly noted during their Kickstarter. However, they said it might not be day 1 and they couldn't give an exact date, as it's still in-development and they're just trying to get it finished as a whole. Considering the majority of it is two people, it's looking ridiculously good.

From what I've heard of people testing the early builds though, it's shaping up to be an FPS to remember.

Additionally, here's the developer walk-through:

A couple of days ago, I visited the Prodeus page inside the Steam client, and noticed the "Request Access" option to gain access to the Closed Beta. I clicked on it, thinking I might get in, and today - I noticed that "Prodeus Playtest" Windows Install is available to me. It's less than 1 GB install size, and I decided to try it out with Proton.

Playing under Linux, and the game blew me away. Super fun. Now I'm even more hyped about the game than I was before. The Beta playtest is a decent size too. I've played for an hour, and it looks like I'm less than half way through.
