Seems that Ready at Dawn is following the path opposite to Naughty Dog in terms of tone and register of their games: which were unveiled with Crash Bandicoot ended up doing The Last of Us, and this people that has had its peak – on media and issues of budget, at least – with The Order: 1886 has just announced a radically different game in all facets. Formers has nothing of Victorian, Gothic or dark but quite the opposite: it’s a multiplayer brawler based on Physics with a tremendously colorful appearance and cartoonesco, in a more or less similar to Splatoon or Plants wave vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
Formers seem a little more crazy than the two examples above, primarily because the characters are a kind of rubber balls with eyes that in addition to shoot including also throw themselves against their opponents to make them fall by the abyss that surrounds the mapping in the form of platform. There is where the important facet of the physical, where recalls remotely that hilarious indie that Double Fine circulated recently, Gang Beasts, and perhaps also with some other level of party Nintendo game or even Smash Bros.
Apparently most responsible for of-Formers is Andrea Pessino, head of technology of Ready at Dawn, that says take literally decades very interested in experimenting with the recreational possibilities of soft body physics simulation, and ensures that everything moves during the game is through Physics algorithms in real time, without animations or scripts. So, although at first glance it seems to be a rung below The Order in the technical question, basically this is not true at all.
In any case, seems Ready at Dawn will meet their desires to publish games on various platforms – of-Formers has no release date but will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One; NX say nothing but it could have a chance – and, in view of mad balls of your game design, who knows if it also delves into the powerful world of dolls. To my already wouldn’t surprise me nothing.
