Selaco looks mental in the latest 'ridiculous' particle effects teaser

By - | Views: 15,244

Built with the awesome power of GZDoom, the upcoming shooter Selaco is really looking to be something quite special and I absolutely need to play this.

"Selaco is a brand new original shooter running on GZDoom, featuring thrilling action set pieces, destructibility, smart AI and a fleshed out story taking place within an immersive game world. It draws inspiration heavily from F.E.A.R. in terms of action set pieces, while mixing traditional retro-FPS elements from QUAKE and DOOM, along with some more modern features. Together with professional artists who work in the industry, several having worked on successful throwback FPS games in the past, Selaco is a fully fleshed out world full of character, action, and mystery."

The new teaser is short but it sure does make up for that with pure insanity, showing off their fancy Ridiculous' Particle Effects setting. Check it out:

Game Features:

  • A lengthy story-driven campaign

Selaco is a story-driven experience, and we don't say that lightly. A dedicated writer has been brought on board to assist with creating an engaging and believable sci-fi story and world.

  • Intense Action set pieces

Turn the entire world into confetti with the destructive power of your weapons. Every single bullet will react properly with any materials or objects you hit. Our artists have created many different variations for each (voxel)object to ensure that the aftermath of each encounter is palpable. That once lavish office space now nothing but a pile of rubble with broken paintings, smashed tables, screen, chairs, smoke, and chunks of debris.

  • Custom AI

With our FEAR influence, writing proper AI was a goal from the get go. The enemy is fully aware of each other's presence and work together to take you down. They will keep their distance if you apply constant pressure on them, will rush you if you hide or run out of bullets, toss grenades if you use the same cover for too long, and much more. Hundreds of custom lines have been written and acted out, providing hints to the player about their current plans and tactics.

  • Full soundtrack

Selaco is accompanied by a full length original soundtrack composed by an experienced musician who has worked on many games in the past.

  • Professional voice-acting.

To help immerse players in the story and atmosphere of Selaco, professional voice actors have been brought on board. Dawn will be voiced by the incredibly talented Melissa Medina, with other casting choices revealed at a later date.

It's quite some time away from release yet but don't let that stop you heading over to Steam and hitting that wishlist button.

This game shapes up nicely indeed! I hope the release date is still a few hundred years closer to the present than stated...

I have high hopes for this one. IMHO, the use of the "Jaguar" cores on the XBONE and PS4, caused a serious hit on the physics and AI of AAA games in the past decade.

Now with "Zen 2" cores available, there is no excuse for big studios to not implement copious amounts of great physics and AI on the next gen consoles' games.

GZDoom? Awesome, means that it's a brand new FPS that I can actually run in 4K with my 5600XT.

i got myself one of those fancy high refresh monitor thingies recently and being able to max out the FPS on my old hardware on titles like Quake was nice.

So far I've played DOW2 and halfway through Far Cry 3. Gonna run through Blood Dragon next.

I'm not going to bother with anything AAA made in the last five years because I just fired up Terminator: Resistance, and I had to dial down the settings quite a bit for a playable framerate at 4K. Was really cool turning off anti-aliasing after about twenty years of having it on and not noticing the slightest difference in image quality.

I don't like a lot of retro styled graphics, but the action in Selaco looks too good to resist. I need it.
