5 Lives Studios has today revealed the first pre-alpha gameplay footage from their rather cool looking futuristic top down action strategy game Satellite Reign which if you’re observant bears a striking resemblance to Bullfrog’s Syndicate Wars from yesteryear. Well, the game is being touted as a spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars and for that reason alone has us really excited. Be sure to check out the Kickstarter Campaign video (although the game has well surpassed its target goal) and offer your support which you can also do so at the official website. The game is coming to PC/Mac later this year.
A note from 5 Live Studios:
“We are really excited to give you a first glimpse of Satellite Reign today in glorious 1080p. But first the disclaimers, its very much a pre alpha build being demoed, nothing here is really final, the UI, audio, weapons and effects are 100% placeholder, in fact it’s so early we weren’t going to show any combat or civilians, but..
The video was actually meant to demonstrate the agents coats reacting to wind from the cars zooming by, but before we knew it we were showing crowds of civilians, CCTV cameras, cover usage, x ray camera mode and even a couple of enemies..
The video was recorded at 1920×1080 @ 60 fps on a 2nd Generation i5 PC with a Radeon 5970 using Fraps.”
