Black Death prototype videos

Black Death prototype videos

It is not that common today but Darkworks released a prototype demo of their next project, a survival horror entitled Black Death. Their goal is to get as much feedback on the demo as possible so they can actually make the best possible game, and possibly the game you want to play. At a time when players blame the developers for imposing their vision of how a game should be, I think it's a pretty nice move. Of course, being a prototype, it means you can't expect every aspect of the game to be polished yet. You can find the demo and more importantly leave your feedback at this address. In the meantime, you can also watch our first video (1080p 60 fps) showing the first half of the demo and get a feel of the game's spooky atmosphere.
Update: Second part added.

Man, that was frickin' awesome. Will definitely keep an eye on this - hopefully it sees a console release as well.

Oh wow, never heard of such a scheme before! I'll check back to give my impressions, and leave my criticisms on that website.

looks promising certainly a long way to go but nonetheless promising.

looks pretty boring, uninpressive, disappointing, played out zombie ZOMG and worst of all the game devs want players to play and give feed back so they can make the game "better" its like the game dev has not confidence, no creativity and no game programing skills or vision, I will pass on this or wait for reviews whenever the final game becomes final.

I liked the atmosphere and the gasmask stuff. I liked the bit with the Chemical Blower, love making potions in other type of games. Other than that, the shooting mechanics need a lot of work, they desperately need iron sights, and the melee weapon feels wrong, and needs a block or counter system. Also, didn't like the implausible invisible walls, you can't jump over cars, so I couldn't get to this fertiliser even though it's just beyond my reach.

And yeah more character models.
