Resurrection: Prey

When I stumbled across an article about the pending release of the videogame Prey, I was stunned. I'd completely forgotten that game. I remember visiting the website back in the late 90's, when it was just a list of features without even screenshots. It was supposed to be a revolutionary game featuring a Native American hero forced into gladitorial combat with features that sounded cool way back then (no loading screens, ooo!). I'd assumed it had gone the way of vaporware, but it turns out another game company re-vamped the entire thing and brought it back. And it looks awesome. Shifting gravity, portals that open into new worlds and monsters, a death system that puts you in the underworld then brings you back to life...the Native American thing is a bit overdone, but what the heck. Download and watch the E3 trailer at the official site. I don't plan to play it, but it's hard not to be impressed.

Pretty cool, but by now what counts is the game play. I guess we'll never know.
I do like the portal effect though.
