Ultra-fast FPS 'REAVER' has a new Playtest Demo up on Steam

By - | Views: 12,135

More FPS goodness available to check out now, with a public Playtest Demo of REAVER up on Steam and it's looking really quite promising but it's very fast-paced. A little bit too fast for me personally but it's got plenty of style you might enjoy.

The developer just recently adjusted it for the Linux version, which initially wasn't running due to some problems with Steam but now it seems to run quite nicely but they would still appreciate feedback from the Playtest. Check out their brand new trailer below too:

Looks super cool. Seems somewhat similar to Ultrakill.
This looks like a game I will enjoy watching people play more than I would enjoy playing. Too fast for me. I wish them luck regardless.
